A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Hobby House Inspiration

Morning Everyone! Hope you're all well and keeping wrapped up in this awful weather ..... 

It's my time again for a little bit of inspiration over at the Hobby House and, as our Challenge this month is ANYTHING GOES I thought I'd have a little play with one of these cute little Treat Bags.

I didn't really have a clue what I was doing, as it's the first time I've attempted one, but I'm pretty pleased with how it's turned out ....
Whilst I was making this, I didn't really know what kind of 'treats' I was going to fill it with.  Then ... I had a little brainstorm!  You know those gorgeous boxes of chocs we are sometimes lucky enough to get given from Santa?  Well, I love most of the chocs inside the boxes, but some aren't particularly to my taste and always tend to get left ....... looking lost and lonely and wondering if they'll ever get eaten! Why not share as another gift?!  Waste Not, Want Not!! Okay, so it's a second hand kinda gift, but at least they'd get eaten LOL.

I made a little box for the treat bag to sit it and added an edge die & some beautiful pearl string.  I inked the topper for a creamy look and added some little faux stitching around the edge.    The gorgeous papers are Tilly Daydream by Docrafts.
You get a sentiment sheet with the papers so I cut this one out and popped it on - it looks a little wonky in the pic, but I promise it wasn't when I put it on LOL.
All of the delicious embellishments are from the Hobby House and are listed individually HERE on the Hobby House Blog.

I hope you like my little creation today and that it inspires you to send a little gift in a bag to someone special ... or, at least to palm your unwanted choccies off to :)  Don't forget our CURRENT CHALLENGE is Anything Goes and we hope you'll join us this month.
