My Special Stuff.....

It's often hard to come up with something hand made for a boy,

but we must not forget they love to receive handmade things too...

I made this for my nephew as a little extra gift for Christmas,
I am going to fill it with chocolate coins :)This cute little box was in my
Design Team Pack, and I just couldn't resist stamping again with these fabulous stamps :)
I used my Stampotique Originals Head & Mr Stripes, The Box is by Collections Chipboard Box & frame set and it was super easy to use, I really enjoyed making this little box.I used my glue stick to adhere old maths text book pages to the box, and PVA glue to glue the corners, then attached little brads through the circles that come with the box, then inked up the corners
other bits I used were Grungeboard Crown, brads, button, acme label I made here
Have a Wonderful weekend everyone :)

Ickie liddle Boy and his pet spider....

heee heee....this liddle boy and his pet spider do make me giggle...
I just love these two!
They are my newest stamps from
I had so much fun making this little piece, it's been ages since I've played with paper and gotten ink all over my fingers and my desk, Recently I went 'op shopping' and found some great vintage Mathematical textbooks.
I love stamping over Text as you may know, well there is something even more appealing stamping over algebra and calculus....
perhaps it's something to do with the fact I never really got maths as a kid at school...
I'm sure Mr Montague, my year 10 maths teacher would love to see I've finally found a use for Algebra....... lol!!!!

How wonderful to find that my Cats life press stamp worked perfectly as a sentiment for this Ickie Pair.... I really must have been in a silly mood when I created this piece...

"Can you see me?" she asked, "Oh, my sweet," he smiled,

"I see you even in my dreams"

I just love the fibre sewn down on my little arch, it reminds me of hairy spider legs....ooohhh did you just get a shiver down your spine?

so here's what I used - Stampotique Originals Head 6033R & Mr Stripes 6007H, Catslife Press 229D Can You see me, Paper Artsy At home Plate no.3, Collections Chipboards House C0389, Collections Vintage Wallpaper, Round Antique Brass Plaque H56, Basic Grey Fibre, vintage paper and ticket and a Gears Stamp but I can't remember which brand it is ;)
Well now, I hope you are all having a most delightful week
