Thanks A Bunch!

Get the mini ones involved with turning trash to treasure for their special teacher. Americana Chalky Finish for Glass will transform any jar or bottle that was headed for the recycling into a pretty vase!
 The stunning new Diamond Press dies and stamps have been used to make a special tag. I love these sets, they are amazingly versatile and so easy to use.  The sentiment has been stamped in coloured ink to give it an extra wow!

Tie the tag to your jar with twine add a button and fill with flowers for a special gift.
It really is that easy!
Thanks for popping by

Hand Stamped Wedding Favours

It's that time of year when we are making all things 'weddingy' and brides are busy putting the finishing touches to their special day.

Combining favours and place settings is a great idea, and means you can get really creative with creating special handcrafted keepsakes.  Our corrugated Kraft boxes are perfect for decorating and filling with the gift of your choice ( my favourite is wild flower seeds...a lasting memory for your guests!)

I painted my wooden heart blank using Refreshing Americana chalk coat was enough!
I always find it easier to start in the middle of my word when stamping as there is nothing worse than it being off centre when you have carefully stamped it all!
I tied the gorgeous lilac polka dot ribbon around my box first and then tied the heart to the bow using natural twine (I like to make life easy!)
