Snowflake Peg Ornament

Just a quickie from me today. I wanted to show you this super easy, super cute snowflake ornament made from clothes pegs. There are loads of tutorials out there for making them, so I won't bore you with the details, just Google Peg Snowflakes 😉


Anyhow, once I'd made the snowflake I gave it coat of Gesso and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I found a long forgotten pot of Diamond Dust and so gave it a generous sprinkle of that, cos you can never have too much sparkle right?

I then embellished it with the Frosted Fir Adornments and Winters Breath Embellishment Kit from Polkadoodles.

The NOEL was created by ME on my Brother Scan n Cut.... can you tell I'm super proud of myself 😂

I'm undecided as to if this should hang or top my tree....

Thanks for popping in today.

Quick and Easy Christmas Shadow Box


Just whizzing in today to share a super quick and easy piece of home decor. This makes a perfect gift and you cost out the time vs materials it actually makes a good replacement as a card. You'll have to excuse the photos but the weather today is absolutely dire and I didn't have time to faff setting up a lightbox and getting the lighting right, so it's a quick snapshot.


Anyhow, I removed the back panel and glass from the frame. I then covered the back panel with some gorgeous paper from Stampin Unicorn and popped it securely back into the frame.

Next I took some of the Moss from the Winter's Breath Embellishment Kit and used hot glue to secure it to the base. I then cut and arranged some of the gorgeous Frosted Fir Adornments, Glittered Large Branch and Conifer Spray  from Polkadoodles into the frame, allowing some of it to overlap the frame. Once I was happy with the layout I hot glued it into position and added fir cones, cinnamon sticks, a paper poinsettia and a cute little robin.

To finish I added a glittered sentiment and some wooden snowflakes.

I hope you like my project.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampin' Unicorn Pillow Box

So did you catch the new products from Stampin' Unicorn on Hochanda on Sunday? If so you may have caught sight of this cute little pillow box that I created for them.



I've stamped images from the Small Beginnings Stamp Set over a Bare Basics Pillow Box and then coloured them in with pencils. The tag has been cut from the Bits and Pieces Ephemera Paper Pad. To finish, I've added some glitter, pearls and a gorgeous lace flower from the Heavenly Dreams Embellishment Kit.

If you get five minutes why not pop over to the Stampin' Unicorn Blog and see what the rest of my teamies got upto? There are some seriously amazing projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.

From Cereal Box to Birdcage!

Just thought I'd share another make from the Honchanda Stampin' Unicorn show. This started life as a docrafts Bare Basic box and a cereal box. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

I need to apologise in advance for the number of pictures but there's a lot of details that I want to show you.

The first thing I did was to cut several strips of card from the cereal box. They were then painted with docrafts Gold Artiste Paint before attaching the "bars" to the box lid using Anita's Tacky Glue.

Next I ran the gorgeous Fourni Papers through my die cutting machine with the LDRS Picnic Quilt embossing folders. Using my finger, I rubbed Faber-Castell Metallic Gelatos over the raised embossed areas. The box was then covered with the papers.


I then die cut several butterflies from the Fourni papers using the LDRS Dotted Wings Die Set and covered them with Stickles Glitter Glue. The hanging butterfly charm from the die set was attached in the roof of the cage.


I used an old Spellbinders die to cut some foliage and coloured it with Distress Inks. Flowers from here were then arranged and adhered to the base and top of the cage.


The little bird is sat on a nest of reindeer moss. I've curled the stems of the flowers around a cocktail stick and then attached the butterflies to give them the appearance of flying.


The tag has been stamped with the mini flower from the Daisy Friends stamp set and attached with ribbon from the embellishment kit.


I hope you like my project and that I've not bored you with all the pictures.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Daisy Friends Simple Stamped Card

This is another of my samples for Stampin' Unicorn using the gorgeous Itsy Ditsy Papers and Daisy Friends Stamp Set.


1. Create a 4" x 6" card blank.

2. Trim a piece of the vintage aqua paper from the Enchanting Tones Paper Pack and a piece of the coordinating patterned paper from the Itsy Ditsy collection, leaving a narrow border on each layer.

3. Place a piece of scrap paper about 1/3rd of the way up the card and then stamp a row of flowers and the daisy from the Daisy Friends stamp set. Colour with Prismacolor pencils.

4. Attach a sentiment from the sentiment/topper grab bag onto the card using foam pads.

5. Colour a wooden butterfly with pencils and add some glitter glue.

6. Randomly place pearls around the large daisy.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Stampin' Unicorn Daisy Friends, Bright & Bold Easel Card

Here's another of my Stampin' Unicorn samples from the debut show on Hochanda. It's a little bit different for me but I really like the bright bold colours.


I stamped the flower from the Daisy Friends stamp set onto card three times, cut it out and then coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils. The flower was then layered up using silicone glue.


The easel card was created using the LDRS Pierced Ovals set. The dies contain a half oval which makes creating an easel card really easy. I used the gorgeous Fourni and Wonderland Papers and one of the Sentiment/Toppers from the Grab Bag.


To finish I added some ribbon and wooden embellishments from the Embellishment Pack. The wooden shapes have been coloured with Prismacolor Pencils.

I'll be back with more samples over the next few days.

Thank for stopping by today.
