Have you noticed the Boutique Boxes pack on page 25 of the Seasonal Catalogue? They are the perfect size for a gift card. Also perfect for a small gift like a charm, the Tea Time Trinkets on page 3 to be exact. These boxes only take minutes to assemble, so I can see myself making lots of these. And the die cut doilies in the kit are just sooooo beautiful. I will have to make one up to show you.
This is the closure at the back. Even the foam dimensional dots and twine are included in the kit.

Hi ya, how have you been? It's school holidays here, and I am enjoying the break in routine so much. Its just wonderful to be able to sleep in and not have to take the kids to a million things. I love school holidays.
But back to cards....last week I was fortunate enough to attend a downline meeting and make a card with a drop down part made by Belinda Brown. It was so pretty and had lots of butterflies and used these very pretty colours. So I decided to make one and change a few bits to call it my own and this is what eventuated.
I just had to use a designer build a brad. Definitely the best thing since sliced bread!
The best part is this cute little book that opens up when you untie the bow.
Have a wonderful week, which I hope includes a sleep in for you all.

I have been busy of late making Mother's Day gifts, including this matching book and packaging. I have used the beautiful tea for two papers available in the seasonal catty. I love the combo of colours and the look of stitching on this paper. I am a sucker for anything sewing like, even though I rarely sew these days.The box holds some handcream. Why not make your mother a gift this mothers day using your supplies. Its fun and I'm sure any mum would appreciate something hand made.

It was Mums birthday last month and we decided to get her a skylight for her hallway as a gift. So my card has a clear skylight in it too. I have used the Secret Garden stamps. These are wonderful to colour, just the right amount of detail without being too fussy.

Thought I would play around with my artisan kit and see what emerged. The background paper is from the Fan Fair pack. I think it works well with the old fashioned lace and embellishments.
