A Minion Book mark…


I have a few things to share today – sorry it is a picture heavy post.

I am sharing a minion book mark for Mr 16’s girlfriend. We are giving her books for Christmas so of course she is going to need a new bookmark.

I used some free digital paper from here. I then made a minion for the other side using these instructions as a guide from here. I used scraps of cardstock and the following punches SU owl builder, word window, flower and circle from itty bitty shapes and hear from itty bitty accents. Along with the scallop tag punch of course to make the tag shape. I used a fine liner to draw his smile and hair. I used some googly eyes. The words are from Jane’s Doodles Read all about it! and the book mark is finished with twine from WeRMK.

I have been busy with some chocolate and silicone molds making sleighs and trees. The “gingerbread” chocolate house is awaiting construction.

These have all now been wrapped in celephane ready for delivery tomorrow.

And the 30 Santa’s got their arms and legs

I used this skinny santa tutorial here. Thank you Sharon. I did use a few different punches & dies as that is what I have.

Mr 16 and Ms 10 also helped me to cover 35 small chocolate bars using MDS digital software.

Thanks for making it all the way to the end




A Cherry on top!

I got this set a few weeks ago and hadn’t inked it up yet. I feel really bad if I don’t ink or use things soon after I get them – its like did I really really need that?

Anyway I feel a bit better now I have inked this set up – or part of it anyway!

I haven’t made to many easel cards – this one was rather simple to make – so maybe I should make them more. Here is the link to the tutorial by Andrea at AnnaBelle Stamps http://www.stampinmoments.com/easel-card-tutorial.html.

I used SU A Cherry on Top stamp set along with a sentiment from SU Happy You. I also used SU Rose Red CS and SU Cheerful Treat DSP along with SU Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, So Saffron and Soft Suede inks and Garden Green marker. I also used a Fiskars oval punch.

I am going to enter this into Sunny Challenges for this week.


Hope your day has got off to a great start. I got a small parcel yesterday and can’t wait to play with it so I might get back a bit later with something else to share.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and if you left me a message I appreciate it.
