All you need to do is cut a rectangle of your carrot paper, mine was 5.5" x 6", roll them into a tube and stick the seam down using red line tape. I then sealed one end horizontally.
Cut a rectangle of green paper and feather cut it to make it look like carrot tops. I also put mine through a paper ribber as I found mine the other day at the back of a drawer. I then folder my carrot tops in half to make them look thicker.
Fill your carrot with Easter treats and seal the other end encasing the carrot tops, this time vertically.
So there you are a cut fun way to give your loved ones a sweet treat this Easter.

For the inside I began by painting it all orange. I then used a 12x12 stencil by Crafters Workshop for my stars. I love this stencil, it always looks stunning. This time I sponged through a lilac blue paint and then drew around the stars with a white paint pen. It looked a bit too clean and crisp so I added some smudges and lines to dirty it up.
To decorate the inside of the spine I used part of another Crafters Workshop stencil. I then used a paint pen to out line it and added smudges and lines to dirty it up.
Then finally the back inside cover. I used another of my favourite Crafter Workshop stencil. Outlined in white paint pen and lots of smudges and lines to dirty it up again.
I must admit I am really pleased with the finished look, not colours I would normally choose but I love then together. Hope you like them too.

I decided to design and make him a tag toy. As a trained Nanny and with lots of Nephews, Nieces as well as Great Nephews I know how much babies and toddlers love labels and tags so this would be just the right gift to make.
I knew it was going to be a boy, so I decided on a rocket shape. I designed the pattern, bought the material, teether and crackle plastic and got to work.

The first digital kit is a School themed kit. Lots of great elements for school pages here. This is my finished digital page.

I used one of the papers for the front pannels and then one of the die cut sentiment for the front swing part of the card.

One of my new years arty goals for this year is to get back into stamping. So once a month, one of my weekly posts for the Fruit Pixie's blog and Facebook page will be a stamped project and here is the first one!
It was my parents 56th wedding anniversary a few days ago and this is the card I made for them. Of course Valentines day is just around the corner so this would be a lovely card for that too or even for a summer wedding card.
The stamp kit I was working with was the Visible Image Immortal Love set ( link below ).

If you know Craftwork cards you will know that in each kit you will get a beautiful pad of 8x8 paper, stacks of die cuts and a bag of their matching Candies. The die cuts differ in each themed kit and with this kit you get some really cute flowers and some different sentiments.
Now I'm not a big user of flowers but for some reason these really caught my eye. They are all different shapes and stack together to make wonderfully cute modern looking flowers. They have also included some cut into a spiral, which can be rolled up to become the centre of your flower.
So, because of these lovely flowers. I decided to make a flower box card.

Now I have to confess I am terrible with numbers, especially remembering then. I never know what the date is, never have been able to remember it and I am also almost as bad on the day too, ever since Hubby has taken early retirement. So when I saw this perpetual calendar in the Silhouette design store I thought it might solve the problem so I had to make one.
