If you give a crafter a cookie - Challenge #65

Winter is on its way to New Zealand definitely feeling the change in temp
over the last week. 

So here is the second for March,  from 'If you give a crafter a cookie' 

here is the inspiration for
challenge #65

Now come play along...

Remember to use the COOKIE picture as inspiration!
(the theme, the color combos, the patterns...)

~You can create ANYTHING your heart desires, as long as it's clear how you were inspired by the cookies!

And here is my creation.
I love the mini milk cartons as treat boxes.
Now I don't have the quick and easy die so all cut, and folded by hand. 

Here are the very easy instructions to make the boxes.

Happy crafting

Lets Scrap Sketches - 03-15-17 - New Siblings

Hi everyone, welcome again to another Lets Scrap sketches challenge.
  Now for this month's sketch for 'Lets Scrap Sketches' 
Remember you have 15 days.

 Now to create my layout I started with the back ground before I chose the photos. 
This is a little unusual for me.  Anyway I stencilled, inked and stamps the paper. 
And then I picked the photos and embellishments:

 
 I used some glossy accent and beads over the layout as well.
 I love the transparencies as they don't detract from the stencilling


 Hope you like it.  Remember to go have a look at my teamies inspiration. 

And I would love to see creations so remember to leave me a comments
and I will come visit.

Happy crafting

It's all about the Cake - Layout

Home with the kids for a couple of days which means a little more time to scrap.
And here is one of the results.



See below for further photos but in the meantime here are the blogs I used as inspiration:



I used the Mini alpha, Gold and Washi tape


Create a "Birthday" layout using the following sketch by the talented.

 




 And the ARTastic Challenge blog, 
(but not eligible as I have combined with more than just a sketch) but great inspiration.

And now for a couple of close ups.




Happy crafting.
