Hi :) I just wanted to let you know that I have been slowly uploading "foody" videos to my new YouTube channel -

It's called "Creative in the Kitchen with Ruth Hamilton" . I've always enjoyed making my food look pretty... I think it's just another side of my crafting :) and wanted to share it with you.

I'd love you to have a look and, even better, to subscribe! As the channel is new and I'm trying to get it off the ground, if you do enjoy what you see I'd love you to give any videos you enjoy a "like" and if possible, leave a little comment :)

Thank you SO much! I hope you like it and it might inspire you to pretty up some of your own food too!

TONIC STUDIOS Perfect Pergola Gift Box - So Many Ways!! #affiliate


The beautiful Perfect Pergola Showcase die set from Tonic Studios is now available from the Tonic websites :)
These are my affiliate links if you'd like to have a look

                                              UK –

Isn't it just wonderful when you get a die set with so many different possibilities! I've used it to make up the boxes which are shown on the packaging but then I also made a completely different little gift box which I hope you also like :) You can attach/adhere some of these boxes/compartments together to make different shapes but I think I quite like using them separately.

You can see how I made them in my video here -

Fabulous Card Creator and Envelope dies!! #affiliate


You will not believe how quick and easy is it to make these projects! I used the Fancy Floral Card Creator die set to make a beautiful 3D card which folds flat and fits into the envelope which I made with the Sent with Love Envelope die set.

You can see how I made these in my video here

As always, I have tried to show other ways of using the sets and will be following this video up with a 2nd where I finish the memory book which I started in this video and also an album which I make with envelopes.
There are also lots of the dies in both sets which you can use on cards.

CYBER WEK LAUNCH - Make Beautiful Sewing Themed Cards and Spool Shaped Gift Box #affiliate


Today I have the beautiful Sew Crafty Showcase CYBER WEEK launch from Tonic Studios to share with you. This is a fabulous big die set containing 40 dies and a paper pack with double sided paper (200gsm) a stamp set and a stencil...all in a plastic wallet!

You can use the dies to make a lovely spool/bobbin shaped gift box and this can be made longer by elongating the die cuts or joining 2 together if you like.

I have used the paper pack along with the dies to make a cute little spool and then I used the papers, dies and stamps to create one card and the stencil and dies and paper to make another.

NEW Cyber Week MEMORY BOOK Launch from Tonic Studios - Treasured Dreams #affiliate


You are going to love this one!! The Treasured Dreams Memory Book die set is one of Tonic's CYBER WEEK launches and I have enjoyed using it so much!!
Its a 54 piece die set which you can use to make a round book with lots of pages and embellishments.

As usual I have tried to incorporate some other dies and also tried to show you a different way of using this set too.
I'd love to know what you think of this :) so please leave me a little comment to let me know :)
I've made a medium sized book (13cm x 13.5cm x 4cm) with a little flip element inside and lots of tags etc but I also made a 7x7 card which would be ideal for a family Christmas card as it opens up to show 7 photos inside.
