Whimsy Wedding – Cake Topper Bunting

image

It’s the middle of the wedding season and I was asked by my cousin, who is a cake designer in Bunbury, to create some wedding themed bunting for a wedding expo she was going to.

I made three different options for her to show her customers and reminded her that since everything I make is made from scratch, it is fully customiable!

That’s the wonderful thing about handmade – it’s created just for you.  Have a name with unusual spelling – no problems, want a specific saying – easy done, need it match your colour theme – totally possible!

Simple & elegant “Mr & Mrs” banner using the Pennant Builder Punch, Skinny Mini Alphabet & heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents.

Classic love birds with a kissing heart!  Made using the Bird Builder Punch, Your Perfect Day Stamp Set & heart from the Owl Builder Punch.


image

And the final one is my favourite – “Just Married” using the Tree punch, Little Letters Thinlits, and Linen Thread.  The ‘scrunchy’ flowers were made using the brown paper SU! use for packing orders, coloured with Bermuda Bay ink and cut with the 1-1/4″ scallop circle punch.

Weddings are special occasions and it’s a nice touch to be able to make something special just for the big event!  Kelly x

Lolly Jar: gifts are so much more wonderful in a jar!

When possible, I like to give something small but thoughtful to friends for their birthday.  And what’s more thoughtful than chocolate?!  Plus, everything is so much more wonderful in a jar.

image

Add a little Stampin’ Up! for decoration and the wonderful becomes perfect!  The jar took most of a bag of M&Ms and although I tried to resist the rest … I ended up eating them ALL! Whoops.

Crafting & chocolate is a match made in heaven.  Kelly x

George’s Birthday Bash

I needed to make a 1st birthday card last week for a special little man, so I “trotted” out a punch art favourite – George from Peppa Pig.  The original punch art tutorial can be found here.

It’s always fun to spruce up a classic with new Occasions favourites – the balloons & sentiments are part of the “From the Herd” stamp set and the DSP is Birthday Bash.  I also used current SU! colours (Pink Pirouette & Blushing Bride) rather than the retired combo in the original tutorial.

Happy Birthday to Jack!  Kelly x

Thank you, thank you, thank you! JAI 251

This week’s Just Add Ink challenge was {perfect} for me!  I have lots to be thankful about at the moment, but the most blog relevant is …

Over 500 Pinterest followers!

Over 150 blog subscribers!

Wow – that’s a lot of people sharing in my papercraft journey! Thanks to each & every one of you.

image

This is my card for Just Add Ink 251.  I’ve used Irresistibly Yours DSP, coloured with Melon Mambo Blendabilities markers.  There are lots of ways to colour the ’emboss resist’ DSP – markers, sponging, painting, braying, spritzing.  The products on pages 210-212 of the catalogue will set you up with everything you need!

I’ve added vellum to the top and finished with the ‘thanks’ (minus the ‘s’) and ‘you’ from the Hello You thinlits.  And for good measure, and happy balance, added a bejeweled Petite Petals flower.

So, once again – thank you!  A blog isn’t worth writing unless someone is reading it.  And it makes me smile to know you are reading it.  Kelly x

The Octonauts visit in GUP-A (plus a GUP-A Curvy Keepsake Box)

Another weekend, and another birthday party!  Kirill is celebrating turning 4 today with an Octonauts themed party.  I have previously made a card featuring Octonauts punch art. During the Octonauts re-creation, I realised they weren’t as involved as they seemed at the time, so I have updated the original post to include instructions.

This time around, I have taken the Octonauts theme one step further and added Captain Barnacle’s underwater vehicle – GUP-A.  This post is full of photos, which I hope will help you to make your own Octonauts & GUP-A. Note: this card is 6″ square.

image

And if you look closely, you can see GUP-A has a 3D light!

image

And once again, it’s a birthday Curvy Keepsake Box.  GUP-A in total 3D!

image

And the back of GUP-A…

Happy Birthday to Kirill!  We hope he has a great day and enjoys his adventures with his Octo-friends.  Kelly & the little Octo-fans x

Bow Builder Punch for all Occasions & Sale-A-Brations

I love punches!  I have most of the SU! range and use them in almost every card I make – one way or another.

One of the newest additions to the family is from the Occasions catalogue – the Bow Builder Punch, which has three pieces used to make bows (as well as other things).

bow builder punchThe ESAD blog hop had some great inspiration for using the Bow Builder Punch – have a look at Libby & Nerida‘s blogs for great bow ideas.  And be sure to visit Clare’s blog for some truly amazing punch art using the Bow Builder punch.

Here is what I’ve been ‘building’ using my punch and some catalogue favourites:
