My Little Crafting Companion

Well my eldest son Tom has settled into senior school and I have been lucky enough to have a couple of extra days with my little one, Olly before he starts school tomorrow. The little fella seems to have caught the crafting bug as he keeps asking to make cards, so we have settled into the craft room and happily played away with bits of paper, glue and bling of course! Olly made this wonderful creation for me.


These stick ons are from Papermania, Olly also has another card in progress which he has punched holes in and glued on flowers and glitter, I honestly think he is going to be better at this than me! Whilst helping him look through my stash of all things glittery I managed to make my first christmas card with an image downloaded from the DigiStamp Boutique.


I think he is so cute, the papers were a free downloaded from Funky Fairys Papercraft which is another brilliant digi site the link for the papers is here.

I also have a friends birthday coming up so I started to think of gift bags for a few little stamps that I have got her to go along with her main present.

I have used my cricut machine and the Tags, Bags and Boxes cartridge to cut out the templates and then glued them together and added some simple embellishments.



I enjoy making these and have started to think about what I can do for Christmas as my husband has seven sisters and we usually give gift vouchers and chocolates to each of them . This year I would like to make them something a bit special so I will work my way through this cartridge until I find something unique for each of them, watch this space!

Has anyone else started making christmas cards yet? All the craft sites I look at seem to be full of organised people starting their christmas cards, its making me a bit panicky!

Hope you all have a great week, I'm off to enjoy my last day with Olly!

Awww, what a sweet reminder that Christmas is looming!! Well done, Olly!! How precious is that?? And how nice it is of mum to let you craft along, awwww. On another note, LOVE the bags, wowie!! They look great!!! What fun you must have had. I think if you start now, you will have enough things for 7 girls by Christmas. I am loving the card you've made with that adorable digi image!! Looks so great, I have really struggled with digi stuff so far. Hope you and Olly enjoyed your final school-less day together :)
