Let the celebrations begin

The cake is now decorated and we are awaiting the rest of the family for the celebrations to begin.

It’s a marbled chocolate orange and a vanilla cake with a gold edible glitter on the butter icing and on the flowers.


A Golden Celebration

I’ve been preparing for a Golden celebration that will take place very soon. How many couples these days are married for 50 Golden years? My parents have almost reached that special day and I’m hoping to surprise them with some decorative crafty touches for their special day.

I’ve been making paper bunting from the tattered lace USB. So easy to make and you can say exactly what you want to say. Even the characters like ampersand which aren’t there you can make up by adding a letter on top of the plain bunting that is provided.

Being a crafter friends and family know that there will be a hand made card too my parents are no exception! So here’s the card I’ve prepared for their special day.

Crafting with a purpose

A weekends work

Life sometimes gets in the way, but I like to make time for my “therapy” – my crating. Someone once told me that if I didn’t craft – think about how much I would be paying to relax in other ways, and that made sense that what makes me happy is to craft (among other things).

This weekend I’ve been working on some props for a friends impromptu hen night being run by her Senior Section unit this coming week. Shhh…….. she’s unaware so I’m hoping that these props will help the celebrations along.

These are some props I found on scan n cut canvas. Some are as they should be others I’ve adapted to suit the occasion. They were so fun and quirky to make! I chose to ink mine too to add depth, with picked raspberry distress Ink.
