About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Money Box & Door Hanger

This project was something different for me. I'd made a door hanger at a workshop I attended which I really enjoyed. It was seen my by sister in law who asked me to do her these for a friends birthday, so here you go, what do you think?

Everything apart from the heart banner on these is courtesy of Dreamees, a really friendly family business who are massively enthusiastic about crafting (you can tell I'm a fan....lol).

The papers are on a double cd called "Simply Sweet" and it's full of various coloured backing papers, accessories, card templates, sentiments (it's packed). I used papers from the cd to craft the green and teal flowers and their white rose kit to make my roses.  The mdf birdhouse money box and door hanger were also from them.

The heart banner die is by La La Land and I purchased it from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and it's my favourite die at the moment...

I will be making myself a hanger shortly to go in my kitchen but it'll be along the lines of the kitchen being heart of the home with maybe a Saturated Canary image included.
