With the Jubilee kit I made this little brooch for my Mum to wear for the Jubilee celebrations! As you can see I used one of my crocheted hearts, a rose and fabric yo-yo, button, and 3 different ribbons from the kit!
Of course you don't have to use this kit for Jubilee themed things you could even use it for Olympic themed things like the torch reply etc!
I've now uploading my mixed media canvases to the shop, they have their own Canvas and things shop! I did start uploading them yesterday but ran out of time to sort out the buttons but it's all done now! There is a lot more like this one!
And this one!
I will also but uploading more hand crafted things in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled!
There's has been a increase in postage my afraid thanks to the royal mail! Prices now start from £2.50
I love to take commissions for canvases so if there is something you have in mind but don't see it in the shop then please email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Also if you have any creations you have made with my embellishment kit please email them to me or leave a link, I would love to see them!

Here's another layout I created using the Spring Zing kit with an Easter theme this time!
The photo is of the cupcakes I made for Easter! I started by tying a bow in the lovely green ribbon and stuck it down. I clustered lots of the embellishments, like some flowers, a cupcake case, the bird (which I outlined and added form dots the the back to give it some height), a journalling spot, a fabric bow, a crocheted flower and some twisted orange bakers twine. I then added some of the green thread to the paper strip at the end and tied it in a bow and added two paper clip flags on to the top of the photo.
I'm having a problem with what to do with old packets of Thickers that don't have that many letters left and I can't seem to throw them away(!!) so I made up the title using lots of different ones, I'm quite pleased with how it looks too!
I have also added these colourful embellishments to the shop today!
They are only £2.00!!
There won't be a new kit next month as I will be added new products, if you are a Facebook fan you may have and will be seeing some sneaks of things to come!!
I created this layout using the Spring Zing kit. I love these bright, springy colours and they went really well with these photos of spring flowers I took!
I only used some letters and a little bit of patterned paper on this layout the rest in from the kit! I used the large butterfly as a template and used a paint dabber to go around it. I used two of mini cupcake liners, I flattened them then added a punched scalloped circle from patterned paper to stick in the middle of them. I also used from the kit the green lace, yellow rick rack, orange border washi tape, a little word flag, a button, the small journalling spot for the date and the handmade yellow gingham circle embellishment and crocheted flower!
It does what it says, it's a spring kit with a bit of zing!!
There's this nice large butterfly which you can colour, mist or use as a template!! The usual The Make and Create shop handmade embellishments and journalling cards and a tag. I have also included some of my crocheted flowers to the kit too!
I've added a new shop today, it's a jewellery shop! I have hand crafted some earrings and added those. There will be more added soon too! If you see anything you like and want them in a different colour etc please contact me and I'll see what I can do!
Here are a few of them, to see the rest look at the shop!
They are only £4.00 a pair!! They make a great little present or a lovely little treat for yourself!!
I've got Leanne's second project from the Two Hearts kit for you today!
Leanne used the crepe paper, borders, tag, twine, heart pin and a couple of the embellishments all from the Two Hearts kit!
Here's what Leanne said about her layout:
"Now I love the red, grey and white combo in this kit - but I think I was getting a bit caught up in making everything match. That is until I pulled out this piece of aqua patterned paper! Oh My, why didn't I think of it before! Red and aqua, such a lovely combo. I used bright letters for the title but as there are october afternoon they are not too bright, and still a little muted in shade."
Thank you Leanne, for sharing such a lovely layout!
If you have made anything with any of The Make and Create shop kits please let me know I would love to see it. Leave a link here in the comments or facebook or email me (makeandcreate@ hotmail.com), you never know your creation might just end up on here!
I have the first project from Leanne, February's guest designer for you today. I really love how Leanne has used the Two Hearts kit to make this gorgeous layout.
I love all the element that Leanne has used, like the title on one of the journalling cards, the crepe paper around the embellishments and all the clustering of the borders, ribbon, little word banners, buttons and gems!
Here's a bit from Leanne about her layout:
I was very honoured to be asked to use Anna's fab red and grey kit this month. As soon as I opened the parcel I knew the first page I wanted to create. In April last year a couple of our best friends tied the knot. Me and Kevin were part of the wedding party and little Maxwell was page boy. They colour theme was red - hence perfect for use of the kit. I love the circle embellishments - and used the crepe paper to make a pin wheel background for them. I cut a trip about 2 inches in width from the paper, and concertinaed it up. To match the grey and redcolours I used mists in similar colours on the background. I added the gems to my title with a little glossy accents - and finished with journalling.'
Thank so much Leanne for creating this fabulous layout!
I can't wait to see what else Leanne comes out with using this kit!
