Cupcakes and Cookies with a Plunger Cutter

My little girl recently turned one and I chose sunflowers as the the theme for the party. I love baking almost as much as I love craft so I had a blast working towards bringing the theme to life. Of course, once I got my hands on the Sunflower Plunger cutter from Itsy Bitsy, everything was smooth sailing.  My cake turned out awesome but ultimately I felt it  a little small so to add to the quantity, I made little chocolate cupcakes surrounding the main cake. Each cupcake was topped with a double Read more...

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!!

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.

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...

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...
