Cupcake Tag

I had some cupcake ribbon (Crafty Ribbons) leftover from a recent card and thought it would be great to make a tag. I inked the edges of the die cut tag, stuck the scrap of ribbon in the centre with a relevant sentiment from stampendous. Then a few more ribbons (3mm satin and eyelash ) to finish.

Hello, here is a cat form that I have decoupaged using some tissue paper and modge podge, it didn't take too long and dries quite quickly. It was something my sister passed to me while she was downsizing for her new job.
I found some nice peach rose paper and once covered I added some swiss dots grosgrain ribbon with a nice bow.

Pom Pom Wreath

The challenge theme over at Crafty Ribbons this week is 'Christmas' (yes in July). With ribbon, as always. I have been planning a pom pom wreath for some time. I had made the pom poms last year but then couldn't find the wreath base or my glue gun (which reappeared when oldest son came back from Uni ! with his and mine!). Anyway, this last weekend I set about putting them altogether with some hot glue and a Christmas ribbon bow (Christmas charm MC Bauble ribbon from Crafty Ribbons) to complete. Here it is....

 It is never too early to get ready for Christmas in the crafting world ! take a look at the rest of the DT creations and join in the fun !

Gift box a head

 My Son James bought his girlfriend a Phrenology head as part of her Birthday present, but it arrived in a rather shabby old cardboard box, so I scoured my stash to see if I could find anything useful. It was slightly too big for a shoe box, luckily I found a basic craft box with a bamboo handle and set about decorating the outside with some floral paper and modge podge. The handle was crying out for some ribbon magic. I added a variety of ribbons from my stash in pink, orange and yellow (most of which can still be found at Crafty Ribbons). Here's a picture of the head, just before it was packed away !

Graduation Congratulations

 Today is my eldest Son's graduation. Finally I get to use this Penny Black stamp ! LOL.
He achieved a first class degree in Architecture and has started working in a firm in Bristol. He is already thinking of a masters degree so he can work towards becoming a fully qualified Architect. We are very proud, he has worked so hard. Maybe he can design our retirement home !

I have coloured the image with promarkers and mounted onto papers from Basic Grey, cupcake collection. The grosgrain ribbon is from Crafty ribbons.
