More than one fold

Morning my crafty friends

WOW how quick is the week gone. It's an other Paper Cupcakes challenge and you have to use more than one fold, this is easy-peasy, so go on show us what's comes into your mind when it comes to more than one fold. There are ideas on my blog and in my sample  for this challenge. When it's more then a fold think out side of the box as well so I made a box/basket lol that is more then one fold to be presize 12 (4 for the bottom, 4 for the sides and 4 for the flaps) I can think of something else what can be more then 12 fold and it a exploding box with 3 layers(that is 12 fold) PLUS the top what is an other 12 fold (bottom, sides and flaps lol )
Oh nooooooo I'm talking to much again sorry lol well if you here and reading my post I guess you used to it by now lol
Ok here are my pics for this challenge. These baskets are the girls Easter egg hunting basket made out of an A4 card stock
 I have used Sunny Stroll and Summer Waddle my little girl chose the chick. The WA and the paper is form Create with TLC (link in my side bar on the top) Can you see the peaking head on the other side of the box? I used my High Hopes rubber stamp and on the other side I drew the face round and gave him/her eyes and mouth, not best of drawing but it did the job lol Below you can see the back of the box

 Top and below the boxes on them own
 Close up of the digi images

 I'm gonna enter these boxes into High Hopes challenge where the theme is Bunnies, bears, balloons

Have a nice week and thanks popping by

I'm sooooooooooooooo late with this

I don't know if I'm coming or going with kids being on Easter holiday. Only 2 more days and they back to nursery, I can not believe 3 weeks is already gone out of 3&1/2. We had so much fun time just passed, ok we had/got the most glorious weather for this time of the year. Yesterday my kids and my friend's 2 yrs old were playing with glitter , you should've seen the two little girls, covered in it, oh maybe I should mention the girls were but naked, then we had music on and my friend's daughter started to shake it, I was rolling she was hilarious. We were having BBQ but before we set down to eat I had to shower the girls, my friend's daughter little private bit was covered in it even after shower lol Kids and me we had oodles and doodles of fun, we played playdoug, baked, went for swimming in a wave pool, we went down the beach, went for hiking and I have to say I'm very proud of Alfie and Mesi especially my 2 yr old daughter who walked/run 2&1/2 hrs, then last wknd our dog run away and 2 days later he was returned. We went to see one of my forum friend who's 2 little ones almost the same age as mines, gosh we always were doing something I hardly had time to craft or by evening I was so tired had no energy to craft.
Anyway I stop yapping lol
Over at DD it's anything goes. I was gonna use one of the new digi's I've got it printed out but had no time to turn it into card, but I will so just watch the space lol
So I used the Easter bunny with the egg. I promised my friend for today's egg hunt I'll do little baskets for them and I show you the boys today (you'll see the girls tomorrow lol ) just had to use these baskets for my DT work as time just flew away.
I also used one of my High Hopes image for the back and used Create with TLC WAs and paper (link in my side bar), the handle is MS punch.

If you look at the back of the box there is a little bunny head popping out, I've got this sweet back of bunny and I wanted to use him but needed a face for it so I put my paper against the window and copied the head and whiskers and I done the rest (sorry not the best but better then nothing)

And here is the back of the box and you can see the bunny who was desperate for a face on the other side lol I just needed him to look into the box lol
Here is the handle, I think this leaf punch is really pretty.
 And the DD bunies close up.

I'm gonna enter this Easter box into the Hight Hopes challenge where the theme is Bunnies, Bears, and Balloons

Paper Cupcakes and Try it on Tuesday DT cards

Over at Paper Cupcake it was my turn to pick the theme and as it's spring I want to see loads of bright cards using Orange, Green&Yellow. I used this beautifully free digi and it goes perfectly well with my colour combo
Here is my card

My second card is for TioT. This week is anything goes but you must up-cycle this is the posh word for recycle lol I made a card using Sassy Cheryl's 2 new images whats the images for the Colour me in challenges.

You must be wondering what's recycled in my card. My flowers been crochet with recycled yarn (my mum pulled apart a jumper what's not been used) the flower middle I took it off from a shirt and the button is from a shirt too. I found a weird shirt what was covered in buttons and gems and took me ages to take those buttons and gems off lol
Cheryl I hope you don't mind I flipped the image to look better on the card, they look so sweet together

Oh yeah almost forgot my WA is Create with TLC what else, link on my sidebar

My Create with TLC DT cards

The other day I was asked to use 2 sets, one is the new "Be..." and the other one is the Music backdrop. I have to say The music backdrop turned out fab, I know I shouldn't prays my work but I do love it. Everything I used is from Create with TLC. On the card the backing paper is from the paper section called Once Apona Rose Papers
Well anyway here are my creations
I'm gonna enter my wall hanger into the EIC where the inspirational Etsy shop is Think Fast Designs. I love Vintage. I remember when I was at high school I used to make long dresses what looked like the 1920-30 lol and it wasn't yesterday so I think my love of Vintage was always with me just never really though abt it.

 I think this wall hanger gonna get onto my craft room's door

And here is be the rose card. I just had to used Paulette's paper with it to what I had in my stash. I have changed the colour though just to match my rose better

Well anyway this week at DD we got a Easter theme: USe ribbon for easter and the winner will get a big bunch of fab ribbons frlom our sponsore. The DT was lucky enough to receive some gorgeous Easter ribbons. I had few samples and didn't know which one to pick. I paper pieced my egg and I decided to use the ribbon with the spotty eggs on it. My DD image is the Easter Egg what you can find in the shop
Here is my card, but when I finished I felt something is missing, just no idea what lol
My card base is light green but not showing up. I had to make a paper rose for the middle it was just screaming for hand made rose. The WA is from TLC creations. In the side view you can see the rose. The ribbon got few colours in to play with and as you can see my main colour is the blue/green. Funnily on the side view you can see the light green base card

I'm gonna enter this card into the EIC, just found this challenge the other day and I LOVE it, whatever you make there is always an inspirational pic you can use four your project. And for my card I picked this blue/green  beauty as my main colours blue/green, this week the inspirational shop called Think Fast Designs

Paper Cupcakes DT card

Good morning my dear blogging friends. For a change I've got a card to blog on time lol I have to pull myself together and do things in time. I blame the weather. Looks like spring is here and it's just nice to be outside. Few times I went out in the last wef weeks to colour my images on the patio, we got South faceing garden and it's always warmer on the patio then anywhere else, just love it.
Well anyway, here is my Paper Cupcakes card
 Over at There's Magic In The Air by Paper Cupcakes the theme is flowers. I have use Easter Lillys, I love lillys.. The DP/BP on my card is from my stash like everything else. The WA is TLC creations. I wanted to emphasize those gorgeous flowers so once was coloured them I drew over it with fine line pen and framed the card with the same black pen. Inside I used the left over paper when I die cut it and inside I drew a frame with the black fine liner.

Few DT creations and High Hopes Challenge

I had a very hectic week. After 4 month not having oven finally got my new cooker this week. I chose a 5 burner dual cooker which cosed a bit of problem lol we needed new cable, poor carpenter had to do extra day to sort it out and it wasn't planed. Adrian wasn't pleased either as he had to pay more money out. I had to reorganise my kitchen cos I lost cupboard space and had to dust everything after my stuff gone back into their new space. I was sooooooooo tired in the last few days had no energy to blog my projects and top of everything I had 2 bad nigh sleep one just had bad dreams and the other Mesi slept with us and she was kicking me in the back lol Friday and Saturday I was like a floppy vegetable lol completely useless
Ok enough of my gobbing

My 1st project is my TioT altered frame. How many of you throw away the frames what comes with the school photo. I kept it, Adrian just told me "Why are you keeping the rubbish again" I just though I give a goo and try to alter it. I think it's turned out quiet nice. Insid the background is TLC Creations and WA as well. I painted it with white acrylic and  crackle paint and before my paint dried I put a bit of glitter in it. The handle and the side is macrame. I completely forgot abt macrame when last week I was leaving comments on blog and came across with a card with macrame knot on it, unfortunately I forgot which blog was it. I just used the plain knots it was such a fun to get this old knowledge out. You should see what the DT come up with too.
I just love this backing paper from TLC Creations

My 2nd card is my Delicious Doodles DT card and the theme: Something for Mum. I chose this pretty WA from DD and the paper is from Pascale's pad. Water coloured the image and used few of my roses from stash. To finish it off I cut a Mariann swirl and few flat pearl. Pop over the blog and have a look what the DT come up with.
 Side view shows you better all that dimension's going on.
 My 3rd card is my High Hopes card. Their theme is Material. I made this card for their last challenge but I forgot to enter it lol BUT luckily fits the bill for this fortnights challenge too lol I used one of my new stamp from them, he is gorgeous. The flowers are material and it's from my stash and got that lovely lace underneath too. I have water coloured him  and my DP/BP is from stash too. The green/brown paper is kitchen paper towel and I kept it when I was spraying my images with shimmer spray.

Dont forget there will be a new realise on the 7th Aprial and a blog hop too with pize so keep your eye opend. Not long ago I won the grand prize $100 worth of High Hopes stamps
