Allsorts - Cakes, cupcakes and sweet treats

Hi all,
time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this time Tracy mouse wants your projects to feature cakes, cupcakes or sweet treats.
I made a gift box for a chocolate bar - locally made and just divine. The music die is a new favourite, very delicate and crisp cut and of course the daisies that come back again and again :).

Allsorts - anything but a card

This week at Allsorts the theme is Anything but a card. I made a desk caddy for notes and pencils. It is so handy to have by the computer!

Allsorts - girls and ladies

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts and the theme is Girls and Ladies.
I used an image from Rick St Dennis with only a die cut daisy and some swirls as decoration cause I wanted the image to be really focused. These hat ladies are just amazing and I love them all!

Allsorts - spring inspiration

Today there is a new challenge over at Allsorts and we have a lovely mood board for you to use for your creations. So think Spring! Not that it's even close to spring where I live, but a girl can dream :)

Week 405 Inspiration
I made a chocolate card with spring flowers as decoration. The card has room for two chocolate cakes, they are locally made and absolutely to die for!

We have two sponsors this week, both digistamp boutique and Little Clare design so do join in.


I have also made some new sentiments to share with you. I have put them under the freebie tab.


Other challenges:
Crafty calendar - special female (and this sure is for a special lady)
Kreativescrapping - bingo, I chose flowers, string and chipboard (the tag)

Allsorts - Metal or Charms

Hello,
my turn to host the challenge over at Allsorts and I want you to use charms or actual metal on your creations.
I made a tag, using an embossing folder on aluminium tape, blackening it with black acrylic paint. Then some cog wheel dies, smudged with gold wax and some metal wire that I tied around the tag. Taking pictures of shiny things really is a drag...

We are sponsored this week by Tattered Lace, they are giving not one but two lucky winners a die each so dig out your metal bits and get crafting.

Allsorts - anything goes

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Anything goes. Nice to have those "let's do whatever"-kinda weeks :)
I made a card with a new text die, once again a die with a stitched edge (I know, I have a tendency to almost wear new things out when I get them) and a gorgeous baby hands stamp I got for my birthday.

Allsorts - Hearts and/or Flowers

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Hearts and/or Flowers. Shouldn't be too much of a struggle I suppose :)
At least it wasn't for me, I made some gift boxes in blue and gold, a favourite layout that works for all sorts of occasions.

Allsorts - paper piecing

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Paper piecing. I made a gift tag using a Lili of the Valley stamp and the colour scheme pink and brown. I just adore my new dies with the stitched edge and I have ordered some more in other shapes :)

Now I'm off to a chorus weekend, two whole days singing and dancing with my wonderful chorus friends in Snowflake singers.
