Time To Sow - Words Like Honey

The postman brought me a lovely set of stamps from Time to Sow. Time to Sow are a Christian Company who specialise in scripture stamps. It is a small rather yummy family run business. Their own stamp range is called Words Like Honey.

Based on Psalm 16 Vs 24 - Kind words are like honey--sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

And yes the stamps truely are like honey. I was sent a selection of adorable stamps just newly released to play with, and boy did I feel blessed.

This is the delightful selection sent to me which arrived on Friday, have sat on my desk while my brain decided what to do with them.

Today I decided to open my first packet and here is the card made with it. and these stamps are Words like honey.

Hougie Board Tutorial - Folded Card with tag pocket

Take a sheet of 12"x12" Paper and score at 6", turn around 90 degrees and score again at 6"

In one corner fold the corner down halfway, in the opposite corner fold under corner to centre ... and you should have what looks like this...

Cut from edge to centre as shown in the picture.....

 Fold from the cut down to the centre, this will place the half fold section on the other side.

fold the left hand side over towards the already folded side.

Now stick the bottom folded section down as this is the front of your card...

Now to decorate your card, I used the gorgeous new realese stamps from Time To Sow. A Christian based stamp and craft company. I also ran a ribbon down the side of the inside section, this is also a pocket so you could easily place a small bookmark or voucher in here if you want your card to be a gift card for Christmas or a birthday.

Princess and the frog....

These are my newest Tilda makes.... I just adore this style of card. I love the lace behind the image, it nearly killed me to use as much as I did to get the ruched look. I think it was worth it though.

July Kit - Summer house.

I have been a tiny bit busy today making my first ever altered chipboard house. I bought a lovely little house a few months ago from Angela at, and up until this afternoon I had no idea what to do with it.

I had been sitting playing with the new kit and thought.... OMG why didnt I use this before now!!! I used the buttons on the roof, and the two pretty pins as the chimney.... isnt it soooooooooooooo pink looking!!! Emily said that the May Arts ribbon reminded her of grass and this was stuck in my head... so now my house has a pretty hedge edging to it :D Oh to grow flowers that MASSIVE!!!

I have a bird house chipboard kit to use as well, and already have plans to use the kit for 2 months time for this !!
