Birthday Bundle

A work colleague of mine has just celebrated her 21st Birthday and I wanted to do something a bit special for her and ended up with a complete matching set! (I might have got just a 'bit' carried away) ...

I designed the candle first, with inspiration from 'We Stamp for Lara' (see previous post) and totally fell in love with the colour scheme so felt inspired to keep going.

Of course any gift needs a card so I made one to match.

One of the presents I am giving her is her very own batch of my infamous caramel slice (all to herself!) so naturally there needed to be a tag to go with that.

And finally (although not shown here) is a *secret* recipe card that I made with the 'from the kitchen of' stamp set which goes with a new pan so she can make this herself. Pretty lucky lady to be getting my special recipe (wink).

I loved creating these gifts and hope she loves it as much as I do.

This tag is so appropriate 'Just for you ... so you don't have to share'!!

I love this candle ... I want one now!! haha

Candle Delight

I am officially addicted to stamping on candles. I saw a tutorial for this technique on 'We Stamp for Lara' and have had a ball creating a variety of designs. Want to know how to makes these? Click here to be directed to Madonna Dunn's blog.

I made the Season's Greetings candle first then moved on to the Xmas Kangaroo once I realised how easy it was!

Gifted Versatility ...

Another creation using products from the Dress Up Christmas promotion ... I am finding the Gifted set so versatile and have a few more projects up my sleeve so I will post some more soon.

Very exciting week this week, as I took delivery of my preorder from the Summer Mini Catalogue which is effective from 1st December. I am having great fun playing with my new products and will post a couple of sneak peeks on these soon, so watch this space :-)
