Easter treats

Hello lovely people,

I have just had a really lovely weekend and isn’t it nice to have slightly warmer weather?  We went for a pub lunch with friends on Saturday followed by a walk in beautiful sunshine; maybe Spring is finally here?!

I also spent some time sharing my crafting supplies with a friend who is just starting out making cards and helped her make her first card – we were both so proud!

One thing I really enjoy at Easter is making little treat bags for my niece and nephews and this year I wanted to try a gift bag design that I saw on Pinterest.  I didn’t print the template or use the dimensions from the original post (which you can find here) but just messed around with some scrap paper until I found a size that I liked.

I attached a flap of card to the back of the bag then folded it over the front and added a sweet mini peg to keep it all closed up.  I popped some eggs in a cellophane bag and they fitted perfectly in the space inside!

Here’s what it looks like inside so you can see the folding;

The images are a set from Pink Petticoat which I coloured with Copics then cut out with a circle Nestie die and layered onto a scalloped circle cut with my Cricut.

Housewarming cookies

Hey peeps,

We visited some friends this weekend who have recently moved and I baked some cookies to take as a housewarming gift – sorry there are no photos of the cookies but they were very tasty!  I made a tag using a little house stamp coloured with ProMarkers but I am not at home as I write this and can’t for the life of me remember where the stamp is from; maybe Hero Arts?!

I would like to enter the tag in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which has the theme of ‘anything but a card’ this week.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments,
