Allsorts Challenge Blog - Create Your Own Background #affiliate


Good morning :) 

This is my Guest DT card for week 724 on the Allsorts Challenge Blog where the theme is "create your own background". There are some beautiful cards there for your inspiration from the Design Team :)

 I've used Nuvo Shimmer Powders (Falling Leaves, Golden Sparkler and Sunray Crossette) sprinkled onto card and spritzed with water for my background and I also used a small piece cut from this card for the background of my sentiment. 

The Pheasant is a digi  image from my website  - Ruth Hamilton Design and is really easy to colour. I used Nuvo Classic Colour Pencils and then fussy cut the image and glued it onto a die cut made with the Friendship Frames, The sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments die set.

If you'd like to check out these supplies you can find them here (affiliate inks)

Tonic Studios Beautiful Bento Box #affiliate


Hello :) The Beautiful Bento Box is now available from the Tonic Studios' websites. These are my affiliate links to the dies

UK –


and you can see how to make it in my video here

This is very easy to put together. I have used a white base with black and gold but this would look equally stunning in different colours.
Mine is also a single tier but you can leave off the feet in subsequent layers and add them on top.
I explain this in the video. Enjoy :)

Easter Sandwiches - Chick, Bunnies, Carrots and Tulips!


Spring has sprung and I grabbed some cookie cutters to celebrate. Most of what I've made can't technically be called sandwiches but I'm sure you'll let me away with it as I couldn't find another suitable name :)
I got some cutters in Home Bargains and Poundland and just got creative with fillings and toppings. The 3 cornered leek, parsley (curly leaf and flat leaf) and violas grow in our garden and I can't wait until more of my "garnishes" come into flower :)

You can see how I made these in my video here

Carrot Sandwiches
wholemeal bread
cream cheese
cooked ham
cheddar cheese
flat leaf parsley

Chick "sandwiches"
