Princess & the frog easel card with a LOTV head!!!!


Hello are you enjoying the sun?!! I'm loving it!
Here's a card I have made using the 'princess dress, tiara, wand & frog' embellies I got at Harrogate on Saturday.
I used my LOTV stamp's head & bitsy body arms to make it into a little girl. The card is for my niece from my mum & I knew if I didn't use the dress with a head & arms of some sort my nieces would ask why!!!

I have also made it a gift box to go in using a recycled dog biscuit box!!




Ingredients on my card:
The shaped die cuts for the card are from Die cut Dreams shop
The oval die cut for my sentiment is SU punches
the sentiment is WOJ
The embellies were from a stall at Harrogate
The top flower & leaves I was sent from a friend
the large flower the frog is sat on I made myself
The butter fly is a punch from studio cards
The pearls are from my stash


Ingredients on the gift box:
Recycled dog bisuit box
papers are Pepper & friends 12x12 glitter
The hedgegog, flowers & butterflies were cut from the Pepper & Friends papers
ribbon from my stash, think its dovecraft ribbon I bought from The Range
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Birthday with lots of pearls
Creative inspirations - Easel cards

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…

Buttons Picture Gift

This week Murphy's friend's little sister turned one and I decided I would have a go at a buttons picture as a present for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Very pretty for a very pretty little girly. She's my little smiley buddy when I do the school run. No matter how I feel she makes me smile.
If you would like to order a picture gift please contact me for more details
