Creating Your Own Personalised Mugs

Creating your own special Personalised Mugs, sounds fun doesn't it?

Well, it is, first I thought of a photo, maybe a family member a Grandson or Granddaughter a loved one maybe. Add some text, that could be real fun, a special date to mark an event.

The choice is yours.

I did a hand drawn image of my own then uploaded it to Mr Nutcase and chose which mug I wanted, I like a big cup of tea so I decided the 15oz mug would be best for me, I then sat back and waited for it to arrive. That is how easy it is.

Mr Nutcase does all of the work for you, I'm in love with my new mug, best of all is that no one can steal it or use it without knowing it is mine, no excuses.

Here is is from all angles.

If you want a reasonable priced gift, what could be better than creating someone their own personalised mugs for their favourite brew?

Flight of the Butterflies

Be still my beating heart, that is the exact words that I said when I received this kit for my Shows on Create and Craft Saturday today at 3pm and Sunday 9am and 3pm.

I started to prep my demos for the shows and just couldn't stop, the more I used it the more I loved it. This set is quite different our usual Hunkydory sets, it craves to be used and explored.


I hope you can join me for some inspiration.

Poppy Garden Luxury Card Collection

Those that know me will also know that I adore Poppies, I love to see fields that a a carpet of reds with the bloom of wild Poppies dancing in the breeze.

That is exactly the feeling that I get with the new Poppy Garden Luxury card collection from Hunkydory.

This collection will launch on Create and Craft on Friday 25th September at 12pm with Annemarie and I will step in on Sunday 10am.

Due to family commitments at the moment, I will only be doing the Sunday Shows for this collection so I hope you will be able to join me.

I have been grabbing a little me time where I could and managed to have some fun with the stamps, card blanks and some of the luxury collection before my shows.

I love that you can get creative with this set.

Poppy Garden4

This was made using one of the Fold Me card blanks, I've had great fun using these and have more to show you in my shows on Sunday.

Again using one of the card blanks and a stamp set, Forever Poppies, this set has seam to seam designs so you can get really creative using them.

I think this is one collection that you just don’t want to miss.

ChalkOla Pens Blog Candy

I found some pens, OK chalk pens or chalk markers, I was so impressed I got 2 sets one for me and one…… as a give away for my blog.

My first thought was a wipe clean memo for on my fridge as these are the perfect wet wipe marker.

ChalkOla 3

Of course it worked beautifully, knowing that there would be much more that could be done with them for instance they could even be used as a Chalkboard marker by teachers even children could use them as they are child safe and non toxic I would however suggest parents supervision for children as I know how carried away I got with the fun of trying them out..

but then I had a light bulb moment

ChalkOla 2

I thought it would be pretty cool to write on mirrors, also started looking around as other stuff in my home that I could decorate and got my eye on this.

As these are bright coloured and in fact neon markers they would spruce up photo frames just by adding a caption.

ChalkOla 1

For the record…. he loves it.

Whether you intend using these for home decor, in the classroom, or even DIY projects you are sure to love the outcome.

Personally I think they are pretty neat for all us crafters.

If you fancy a set of these pens

they can be bought here 

or leave me a comment and I will draw a winner next Sunday.

Adorable Scorable with Alcohol Inks

After using the Brusho Art Paints, I suddenly realised that I could get a stunning vibrant effect using the Hunkydory Adorable Scorable and Alcohol Inks. well I wasn’t wrong, I decided to use colours that I would normally shy away from and used yellows and orange and I’m thrilled with the effect.

After such a stressful few weeks it was good to get in the craft room and experiment, I truly champion Adorable Scorable by Hunkydory, if you haven’t yet tried it then you are missing out, quality smooth coated 350gsm card stock with flexible ink that is amazing.

I used cotton white Adorable Scorable to stamp and ink onto and cut some small slithers from the mellow sage colour to make spiral foliage.

I’m back at Create and Craft from Monday with a fabulous deal of new Hunkydory sets at 9am and 6pm Sky Chanel 674.
