Weight Loss Fridge Magnets

If you're anything like me, you're constantly fighting the Battle of the Bulge. Perpetual diets, constant workout changes and little or no change on the scale - sound familiar anyone? Wish I could blame it on my 2 pregnancies, but I can't - there is only one reason for my weighty issues - The Goodies in my Refrigerator!! With hungry kids and a hubby in the house, my fridge is stocked with the yummiest snacks and sadly I just can't seem to stop digging in. So I thought how about crafting my way out Read more...

A Pretty Girly Dollhouse Part 3 – The Bedroom and The Nursery

I'm back again with the third and final instalment of my crafty dollhouse series. Part one was all about making the house from an old carton. In Part two, I created the furniture for the living and dining rooms using some old match boxes and toilet rolls. Now in Part 3, I'm going to finish furnishing the remaining two rooms of the house. It's time to work on the bedroom and the nursery. So let's get started.I chose a lacy blue theme for the bedroom. The bed is actually an old pack of breakfast bars Read more...

Time for some PASSIONATE PLUM

Itsy Bitsy has a range of colour collections and when you're shopping for embellishments you will often find them in packs like Soft Touch, Bubblegum, Aqua etc. One of the collections that I find quite mesmerising is 'Plum'. It's all deep and seductive purples so when I was thinking up how I wanted to style this name board, 'Plum' just popped to mind!A name board is great for a child's room or outside your front door. When it's custom made like the one above, then you can take particular comfort Read more...

A dressed up tin

Hello peeps, this is Juhi with another guest DT post. White on white is my favorite for CAS cards, but I had never tried it on a 3-D project, until now. I dressed up an old tin for the Itsy Bitsy Pristine Sparkle Challenge. I must admit, I had no end "look" in mind when I started this but I do love the end result.This is what I started out with.I began by applying a layer of decoupage glue (any other craft glue will work as well) over the tin and covering it with crushed wrapping tissue. I've used Read more...

A Pretty Girly Dollhouse Part 2 – The Living and Dining Room Furniture

A week ago, I published photos of a dollhouse I made using an old carton and some fabulous Itsy Bitsy supplies. If you haven't seen it yet or would like to take a look again, you can find it here. Today as promised I am sharing the furniture I made for the living and dining rooms. I'm really having fun with this project because as Suman Pandit  commented on my paper dolls post, these kinds of projects are great for little girls everywhere, even the little girls lurking inside grown women like me!

Chocolate Truffles with the Itsy Bitsy Chocolate Moulds

As you know Itsy Bitsy is the definitive hobby and craft megastore and if your hobby extends to chocolate making and baking, we've got a fabulous range in this area as well. I recently picked up some fabulous silicone Chocolate Moulds from the Itsy Bitsy store and couldn't wait to start making a batch of chocolates. The silicone moulds are far better than the plastic ones as they are pliable, flexible and won't crack under pressure. When the chocolate sets, all you have to do is ease it out of the Read more...

A Pretty Girly DollHouse – Part 1

When I was a child - about 7 years old, one of our school craft projects was to make a dollhouse using a shoebox. It was a pretty straightforward creation - one room with a little furniture but it is the one school project that has remained with me so many years later. I've always wanted to try that again but this time I took it to a larger scale. I used a large discarded carton and went to town converting it to a dollhouse that any little girl would LOVE.Dr Sonia of Cards and School Projects did Read more...
