Triangle Box

Hi everyone

Something a little different from me today, I was messing around with some Easter Eggs I bought and knew I wanted to make a box for them.  Yes I’m a little late putting this up but it’s perfect for little gifts too!

I hope you enjoy this VIDEO (I know! First video in 3 years!) please do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker’S Twine


Gifts for friends. Made by Sam’s Crafty Things, using Stampin’ Up! Products

Hi everyone!

I’ve made some really good friends in the team that I’m in with Stampin’ Up! Two of them I regularly chat to and we all have an addiction to Haribo and Nutella! So I decided, as I won’t see them for a while, that I’d give them a little present to take home with them.  Of course the gift was Haribo and Nutella!!





This DSP is Toni’s favourite so of course I had to use it!




This one was for Hayley, I used this DSP because she’s so bright and sunny I thought it matched her well!

I love the bright colours on these boxes, and I made them with some sturdy card so that they can use the boxes again, maybe to store so craft supplies, or maybe more Haribo!

Do you have any addictions you and your friends share?

Thanks for stopping by!

MDS meets a baby shower….

Hi everyone!

How are your weekends? Are you busy Christmas shopping, or are you being like me and feeling a bit bah-humbug?! Really not feeling festive yet!

I promised I’d be back with another MDS project and here it is! I was asked to make some gifts for the people attending my friends daughters baby shower.  Normally I make her wooden hearts and use pyrography to add the wording but as there was so much text we agreed upon something different.  What better way to test run MDS?!





I used the heart punch shape and added stamped images to fit, I then adjusted to opacity of the stamped images so they faded into the background more.  Once I printed off I (fussy) cut the hearts out, added the ribbon and glued the front and back together.  The only thing I don’t like about printed crafts is that you lose the 3D effect, so I decided to add a bit of ‘bling’ to the cards in the form of Rhinestone Jewels for my friends daughters heart, and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the others.

What do you think? My friend was over the moon with them (phew!) and I think I’ll be making some for family this Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
