Tea Light Candle Holders

Hi fellow crafters. Its Monday morning here and I must admit its a little hard to get moving or even poke my nose out the front door.!  Yes it appears to be raining again and lots of it! Plenty of time to do more crafting.  This is a good thing as I like to have a big variety at the Handmade Market Expo in Morayfield this Sunday. If it hasnt rained too much it should be a good day especially with it all being indoors the weather will not hurt us at all unless its too much rain.

There has been a lot of rain recently and with rain and humidity and warmth, its perfect for mosquitoes. I have the tea light candles with the citronella in them and they are amazingly like a lot of our gorgeous colours:

I like to have my candles as visible as possible so therefore I have made some holders for them. I made them using Aluminium in the Big Shot using the Flower Folds Bigz Die. The smaller of the 2 flowers has then been run through my Petals Aplenty Embossing Folder. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Daffodil Delight

Tealight Candle Holder – Daffodil Delight

This one is Daffodil Delight or close to it (no I didnt colour them myself) in the bottom right hand corner you can see Pretty in Pink candle. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Riding Hood Red

Here is one that is similar in colour to Riding Hood Red. And a group shot ready to go for the Market this weekend. I hope they go a treat.

I love the way when the die cuts the aluminium that it neatly rolls the edges, therefore there is no risk to cutting fingers. Once that candle is finished, its just simple to put another in the centre.

Thank you once again for stopping by and looking at my blog.

take care

Exciting News

Hi Crafters, thanx for stopping by. I have some exciting news that I have been keeping quiet about until now. I could have shouted it out from Sunday but I have been under the weather.

My news? I was invited to be a Guest Designer for April for Sunny Challenges and Creations. I am excited and flattered to have been invited. First here is the sketch for this week.

My entry is here:

Mixed Bunch and Blossom Punch

Here is another couple of items from the new Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue.

I have used the new Mixed Bunch Stamp Set that coordinates with the new blossom punch and of course that lovely Pleated Satin Ribbon.  I love these new sets and have been using them quite a bit.

You still have plenty of time to join in the Sunny Challenge for this week and I am sure that we would love to see what you come up with from the sketch.

Thank you again for stopping by

Easter Mini Milk Cartons and Flowers

Hi, thank you again for stopping by for a peak. This week, I have been focusing on getting some items ready for Easter markets. First off what is Easter without flowers a symbol of new life. I made these after seeing some in various places on the internet. I looked closer at the pictures and discovered that most were made with mini Chupa Chups, I only had the big ones. Here are the flowers that I made up and I have them displayed on my colander at the moment and probably will take this to the market as I think they look very nice displayed like this.

Chupa Chup Flowers

I think they are so adorable and would love to just take one and start eating it, but they are too nice to unwrap. Here is another view

Overhead view of the flowers again

I also made these adorable Mini Milk Cartons, they are stuffed full of chocolatey Easter goodness.

Easter Mini Milk Cartons Galore

I used the Vellum Cardstock as the vellum paper was really too thin to run through the embossing folders

Another view of the Easter Mini Milk Cartons

I think they are so cute, I took more pictures so here is another one

Vellum Easter Mini Milk Cartons

I hope you enjoyed looking at these ideas for Easter. I know I enjoyed making them, although very hard to fill those milk cartons up once I opened the bag of Easter Eggs!!

Thank you again for stopping by.
