Crafting With Hunkydory Perfect Petals Members Free Gift

Hi everyone,

It's been a little while since I have blogged craft - I was so overloaded with crafting for the Christmas shop I tried selling in, and then moved house - but now all my things are fairly well organised - in fact I think my craft stash is better organised than it was before - so I thought I'd share a couple of quick makes mainly using a Hunkydory card kit.

For anyone who doesn't know Hunkydory, their products are always really good quality, often foiled and detailed, and I've found you can get quite a lot out of one kit, even a topper kit if you are economical and don't try and use it all up on one or two projects. Their club is free to join and you get access to lots of content on their website, sometimes you will see a 'club price' for items if your signed up and signed in. They do free gifts - I was slightly sucked in when I saw the word 'free' - but every so often they introduce a members gift and you can order this, and either pay £2.99 postage if you've ordered it on it's own, or pay nothing if you have other things in your basket.

The Perfect Petals Kit included several topped sheets, card inserts, papers and card - plenty to make a good few cards, and ideal for tags, maybe gift boxes for light items as well. I think there's a lot you can do with it, but today I wanted to share a couple of quick makes.

I used a kraft card style blank here, along with ribbon tied in a double bow and a small flower gem. All the rest was mixed and matched from the kit. The card blank was just opened out, and then each side was folded into the middle. I'm a little unsure about mixing and matching different patterns sometimes, but I think this turned out well.

This card again used some small flower gems from my stash, and a brad which I stuck through a small part of a border strip I'd folded from the kit. Happy Mother's Day was stamped using alphabet stamps from the Papermania/Do Crafts Urban Stamps Collection.

Hope you all enjoy these new makes - will be back soon with something I've made for the Baker Ross Blogger network. if you're a crafty blogger too I would love to hear more, so do please connect and share your links etc. All support and comments are much appreciated. You can also easily comment as a guest if you're not signed up to any network given in the options.

Have a great day everyone.

Name On Rice Creations - Keyring Review

Saturday blogging of a creative nature, as I recently was lucky enough to be picked as a tester for Name On Rice Creations. They were offering a group of lucky customers to order a product simply for paying postage. There was a choice of items available that could be customised a bit.

This page caught my eye because of the name - Name On Rice Creations - what could it mean? How could you possibly write on rice. I had to try it out.



There are bookmarks, bracelets, bag charm/keyrings, Christmas decorations and a few other items available, all based around a cute little vial which houses pretty sparkly things in liquid, and your name on rice. It's all slightly mysterious, but I like not knowing exactly how it's done and what's been used.

I chose a keyring, with pink sparkle, my name on the rice, and you also get to choose extra charms, so I ended up with a pawprint and a petal (my craft page is called Pawprints and Petals). It's a busy and popular page, so I had to wait …

Sherbet Lane - Stationery Subscription Box Review

I don't think everyone quite understands it, but I love stationery, and while I wouldn't call myself addicted, I have to write letters on pretty paper, and use notebooks with a funky cover. Plain is just a bit boring! I was lucky enough to chat with designer and illustrator Claire Keay for Essex Lowdown, and kept in touch after doing the article. It's great when you freelance and you can keep some of the connections you make, and write follow up content.

So hear I am with a new and shiny #SherbetBox - this is the stationery subscription box from Claire's Sherbet Lane brand, which was initially crowd funded in super quick time. So far it seems, so good, so well done, as I know it's not easy launching a new project, and wondering if anyone will fund or buy it.



My Sherbet Box was the second one to be released for July 2016, and the theme was all seaside related. Inside my box of goodies was a themed pencil, a themed gift tag, a small sweet, a colouring sheet, a small…

Garden Mosaic Picture - With Wood And Mosaic Tiles

* Craft Alert*

I recently received a box of goodies from the lovely people at Baker Ross, and if you've seen my previous make you'll know that I was intrigued by the sisal, and enjoyed making with it. I have some colourful looking pens to try out soon as well. The rest of the box was a little disappointing, in that the wood pieces, small wooden logs (my best name for them) and a big box of mosaic tiles, didn't come together in an obvious way at first, and none of the packs had any suggestions to get you going with how they could be best attached to things or manipulated.


It was mum who came up with the idea of sticking some of the bigger bits of wood (mulberry slices) together and then decorating the shape, and after a bit of experimenting I came up with a rough circle shape. I decided then to make a little piece of artwork for the garden, and painted the wood up with an outdoor paint.

There are a lot of mosaic tiles in the box, in all kinds of shapes and colours, with s…
