You May Remember

A year ago I showed you how to make a paper bat using the round tab punch. I never posted what the bats went on so I though seen as it was that time of year again I would show you what I made. Have a happy Halloween!

Stampin' Up! Wedding Table decorations

So this is the next bit of my wedding craft extravaganza. This whole process started just after Christmas and continued for a full three months. When I came up with this idea for our table centre decorations I was not really aware what I had let myself in for and towards the end of punching out 4000 Stampin' Up! fancy flower punches I was convinced I had given myself RSI. Well all is well now and my hand needed a bit of a rest before the next process started and that was constructing the flowers. I did this video can be seen here 1000 times in order to make enough for 10 table decorations.
The photos below show just some of the flowers that were made ready for the next stage

If you would like to see the finished product come back tomorrow!!!!

So here follows photos of the next stage

Paper Wedding Cake Part Two

 I have had the professional wedding photographs back for a while now and I have been meaning to share them with you sooner but we are having a extension built so I have been up to my knees in dust and house reorganisation. The photos of the cake in the last post were taken from  friends that had shared them on the internet so it does mean you are not able to click on the photo for a better look. These ones you will be able to.

The shot below is taken from the top of the cake

Part One- The Wedding Cake

Well it has been a while. I have had a very busy couple of months. I am no longer Catherine Evans I am now Catherine Wilcox!
The picture below is me telling everyone at my wedding how to open the all in one box that I posted a video for ,it can be found here. I made 80 of these boxes which made up my wedding cake, each box contained chocolate. It was really hard explaining to my wedding co-ordinator what I was on about and I could see form her face that she thought I was a bit mad.

The following pictures tell the cake story

There will be more to follow.

Guest Designer- A Good Egg

One of my lovely customers designed this card, we had a fun filled afternoon of crafting with the A Good Egg stamp set. I love the way she has used the flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch. She coloured the egg in using the Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils and the used the blender pen. Sorry the colour is a little strange in the photo, I had to take it after work and the light was fading.

All In One Treat Box

I saw this idea on Splitcoast Stampers a while ago, they used a template to make the box. I am no good with templates so I adapted  the idea. I made one of these boxes ages ago and the pictures can be found here. I though I should make a video tutorial so you can all have a go. I am currently making 120 of these boxes.... all will be revealed in due course. I have mentioned on my video that I would take a picture of my plan with the measurements on. I will have to do that tomorrow.

Some Cake?

I made this cake for a friend at school. 
In key Stage One we celebrate Birthdays during assembly BUT we had no cake to do it with. So I set myself the challenge. It has taken me ages to get round to making it BUT I am very pleased with the result. The reason there are only seven candles on the cake is because the oldest a child can be in the infants is  seven, it was lucky because I only had seven to hand. I have to admit I found it very hard to hand it over.
