Sweet boxes and envelopes!

Well my not so tidy desk got invaded and all my skinny bits of paper were stolen with a trill-lil-lil and a flipperty flap of "you are not having this back it is all MINE" from Spinny our Black Faced Wood Swallow.

I have been busy making some little sweet shoppe's for my Grandparents since they both love getting post.  One I played with the Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder.  The Sweet Shoppe was a design from the Silhouette Online Store, cut out and modified a little with the Silhouette Cameo.  
In the foreground of the photo you can see the individualised envelopes for Nanna and Granddad since they are all going into a mail box we were able to add a little bit of fun and interest.
So Lollies (including sugar free for Granddad), letters, cards and photos all ready to go!

 Happy Crafting *hugs* Sarah x

Hello Granddad!

Another quick card that took way too long to make (silly mistakes causing start overs lol)...

My Granddad is having a stay in the hospital so aside from calling every day we are sending love and happiness by post :-)

Hello Granddad was done with my Silhouette as were all the cuts (because I cannot cut a straight line to save my life lol) the background folder is a Tim Holtz.. Alterations, Texture Fades Rays (A2)... embossed through the Cuttlebug... then inked in Memento Dye Ink Dandelion.  The sun is embossed in Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug.
The inside is written by my Silhouette... found the right settings now ;-) hehe.  De-bossed then embossed to give more texture through the Cuttlebug using a home made defuser plate made from a self healing mat.  The Embossing folder was Christmas Stars but seems to lend itself to bright and cheery :-)

If you need information on how I made my Defuser - to leave an oval un-embossed in the centre... click here ;-)

Happy Crafting *hugs* Sarah

Twit T-Woooo

It's a family thing... Owls say Twit T-Wooo... ;-)

My Family has been having a hard time of it at the moment... so I am sending some LoVe in the mail... first card is for Nanna...


The Front is debossed with my trusty Cuttlebug with the folder Owl Flourish.  The inside is embossed with the mpress folder called Tulips Windows.  The writing is done with my Silhouette Cameo... so glad I have it because there are no stamps that say Twit T-Wooo hehehe

Ok Onward to Granddads card so he has something nice to open too :-)
