December Brimbles box

So December box is here ..... finally ..... Pain in the bum royal mail !!

I will most probably say this about every box but i love it!! i did an unboxing video opening it all up if you wanted to check that out.i love all the colours in it and the different tones of blues and greens obviously with Anna's art work throughout which is the best part about it.

every month there is some 12"12 card stock and this month i decided with some of that card stock i would make a new pocket book that i have been enjoying making this last month. I did a how to video on how i make these on my channel.


I love how this tuned out and i still have so much to use. As i said in the unboxing video for this box in the new year i will be starting to scrapbook in a 12"12 album so the other papers from the kit will be saved ready to scrapbook and i will blog about them as and when they are done.

I also love the key-ring that came in the box so much as soon as i finished filming the unboxing video it went straight on my purse.

Christmas bauble baubles xmas craft

So the November Brimbles box has landed and there was three beautiful 12"12 papers in it.

i felt so inspired with these papers and everything that was in the box and even in the video of me unboxing it i was reeling of all the possibilities.

the first thing i thought about making was these :

They are Christmas bauble baubles !!

obviously i really got into the Christmas spirit once i opened this box.

first i chose the paper i wanted to use which is this one from this months brimbles box , and got these supplies ready. you may notice i had to change the size of brad i was using.

then i cut the sheet in half trying not to decapitate any Santa or reindeer.
then i measured out strips going down at 1/2 an inch wide going all the way across, then cut them out making sure i kept then in order.

i then hole punched the tops and bottoms of each strip.

Then added a brad to either end through all the layers.

then its just a case of folding it out.

Really easy and so much fun i managed to get two out of one sheet of 12"12 paper.

Lollipop Box October 2016

So the amazing October Lollipop Box came today, and to say i was blown away with it would be an understatement.

I opened it all on camera for my YouTube channel which you can find here.

This Box is Kit 17 and is called Pumpkin Spiced Latte Party.

You can see from the items in the kit the theme is carried right through.

this blog post would be amazingly long if i went through each item but some of my favorites are this

which is a beautiful paper clip the felt part is made by the very talented andies accessories and they are then turned into paper clips by Lisa.

then theres this which i am so in love with it was in a bag which said trick or treat on.

its a cure mirror which is totally unexpected but i love it so much.

A Lollipop box Would not be a lollipop box ith out the lollipop and i can safely say ( as ive just devoured it) it was delicious.

All in all there are some amazing bits in this box and i love this box each month it comes. Lisa outdoes herself each month every time and i cant praise it enough. Role on November !!

Washi tape craft

So the lovely Anna brimbles from the mrs brimbles Facebook group set us all a challenge to use washitape in a different way. Apart from decorating planner pages so I remembered seeing this craft on Facebook once and I remembered it so here goes.

First you need to cut corners of of scrap envelopes. 

Then you need to pick some of your favourite washi tape.

Then you need to lay your washi tape across the corner makeing sure you don't covert the opening.

Then flip or over and do the same on the other side and then cut off the excess and that's it.

So simple but come in handy.

Traveling post

Well I joined a Facebook group run by the very lovely daisy @ my green cow on YouTube and she set up an amazing group where people send traveling notebooks and post cards to each other. People's creations get to travel around the world which is amazing.
Daisy had been sent a notebook from the lovely sasha and asked if I'd like to be next. Obviously I agreed and you can see below what I created. I felt a little concerned being after daisy as she's such a natural at this creative stuff lol but I have it my best go and now it's off to another lovely lady to add to it.

well im back !!

what can i say its been a while in the time ive been gone ive moved house me and Steven have finally set a date for the long overdue wedding and ive discovered a new passion.

planning has always been a part of my life but ive only really ever had pound-shop diaries and just tryed my best to make them work for me, but would always get a few weeks in and give up.

then i watched a video on YouTube about an Erin condren planner, and i feel in love. then i see some sticker hauls about etsy stores and ts true what people say it really is like falling down a rabbit hole.

then someone on one of the Facebook planner groups suggested a planner box called Mrs Brimbles and as soon as became apart of that group i felt so at home. they encouraged me to upload my first youtube video and well its kind of snowballed from there. please stayed tuned to see more planner related stuff :)
