I was blog hopping- as you do- and came across instructions to make these adorable, sweet, cute, amazing gift pouches. In the USA they call them sour cream containers as i guess that is what their sour cream comes in. First off i have to apologise to the owner of the blog where i first saw them as i didn't copy the link because i was so excited and had to make one there and then, really they are so very very easy to make.. I used a die and stamp set from Paper Tray Ink to make this cute tag. The paper is 6x6 made into a tube like a toilet roll and glued down at each end and then you crimp it with a crimper. I just happen to have one that my friend gave me about 10 years ago and i have never used it. I have been tempted to throw it out many times but now i am so glad that i kept it as it gives these that little extra finesse.
Here's a LO of my mum, it should be titled "never to young to swing" The papers are all Basic Grey.
I got some Stampin Up goodies during the week and here are two cards with different sentiments. The HB sentiment is an Ali Edwards stamp from Technique Tuesday (another monthly package i get). The idea for these cards came from the SU catalogue.
Here's a LO that just had to be done as the story had to be recorded. In our family we are all tall. I am 6ft. My son Joe has been taller than me for a while now but not taller than his dad. Well, he is now, Joe is 6ft 5in and he's only 16, how much taller will he get?
The tape measure on this page is a canvas ribbon from Tim Holtz, the ruler stamp is from Paper Tray Ink and the Title letters are from Stampin Up (notice how perfectly aligned they are-i used my new stamp positioner)
BTW-the papers i used to make my three cards in yesterday post were October Afternoon, Fly A Kite. My new AB FAB FAVOURITE.
and last but not least is a photo of my yummy Yorkshire puddings that i made last Sunday and promised to show you.
Wow the set out of this post is all over the place, that's what happens when you are rushing. Sorry.
It's a public holiday here in the West tomorrow so if you have tomorrow off have a nice day. Joe is going to the Royal Show with some friends. Caitlin as i type this is at a Music Festival called Park Life which started at 12 lunch time and finishes at 12 midnight, guess what poor soul has to pick her up?
but i cant complain as its also the start of the school holidays here and that means holidays for me, and guess what? I have a real lot of crafing mojo happening so that's what i will be doing.
