Hey there crafty friends,

Tonight on my Come Craft With Me YouTube LIVE session, I had so much fun playing with the new February release from Heffy Doodle. I have been itching to get playing with these for SO LONG!

I managed three cards in the LIVE show, first up this sweet card.

I actually found the background in my stash (i made it during a previous CCWM live sesh) – it was made with the Honey Bee Stamps hexagon stipple plate background die, and some yellow watercolour paint which i drizzled down the card front. Once dry, I lavished on some glossy accents. Tonight I stamped the bear and honey pot from the Heffy Doodle Unbearable Without You stamp set and coloured him in with Copics.

The HELLO is from the new Heffy Doodle Honey Bunny Boo stamp set, and the die cut is the new Heffy Doodle Honey Heffy Cuts. I layered four die cuts together to get a dimensional look.

Next up, I was channeling my 8 year old self as I set out to do some WEAVING!

I die cut a bunch of kraft cardstock using the Heffy Doodle Stitched Strips of Ease dies and then started to weave these together. I die cut it into an oval shape and layered onto a cute scalloped oval. I stamped the bunnies and eggs from the new Heffy Doodle Honey Bunny Boo stamp and die set, and the basket is from the Exclusive not-yet-released stamp set called Mewniverse. You can still get it by spending more than £35 in the Heffy Doodle store (before shipping).

I coloured the images in using my Zig clean color real brush markers (although I think i need more practice!). The sentiment is also from the Honey Bunny Boo stamp set and i cut him out easily with the Strips of Ease dies from Heffy Doodle.

This one was a labour of love, but i actually ADORE how it turned out. I took some watercolour cardstock and die cut the new Heffy Cuts HEY die all over it. Then I stuck all the parts together onto a card front – just like a jigsaw! I found a piece of red card that had been inked up with some Distress oxide ink and some clear embossing paste had been added over the top of a stencil -and i thought the intense pop of red would be amazing against the white backgound, so i used a heart die to cut out a shape.

I stamped some images from the Heffy Doodle Beary Big Heart stamp set and dies. I coloured in the images with watercolour paints and added a sparkle to the card heart using some spectrum noir brush pens. I laid down some crochet aida behind the heart, added some nuvo drops and also added a sentiment using the Heffy Doodle Whatcha Saying stamp and die set.

Hey guys! I am back!

Creativation was an absolute blast – thank you so much to those who followed along with all the shenanigans via our Heffy Doodle instagram. I am just about recovered from an icky Conference flu, and BOY did i feel much better after tonight’s crafty session!

Over the next few weeks we will have some more videos to share, as I will be part of some blog hops and collaboration projects. So watch this space.

Here’s tonight’s replay of my Come Craft With Me LIVE youtube sesh. Remember to subscribe if you want to catch it when i go live. Mostly it will be on Friday nights at 9pm GMT, but sometimes I just randomly go live when the mood takes me! 🙂

In this video I go through the lots of goodies i brought back from Creativation, I take a closer look at the new Heffy Doodle release, and I also show some Unity stamp set which are free to a good home. Later in the video, I get crafty with some Color bursts by Ken Oliver. I was lucky enough to have Ken and Amy Fligel in our row at Creativation, and then we saw them again at Frankfurt. I couldn’t wait to get crafty with these fun products.

It’s Christmas! And for the last few years at Hungry Heffy Crafts, we have had a Christmas special video with our daughter Piper. Between nativities, and school fairs and stamp designing and all sorts… we simply didn’t get a chance to do one this year. So when Piper asked if she could make a card with me, and she seemed excited about doing a LIVE craft stream – I thought we would jump on it!

A huge thanks to everyone who joined the live stream and showed their encouragement with little Piper. She was in top form, and seemed to know exactly what she wanted to make – a light up chibitronics card!

Please do watch the playback, enjoy her childish ramblings and her witness her creativity flourish. Here’s a look at what she made.

She wanted to use coloured pencils and boy did she get excited about fussy cutting. She used some Lawn Fawn winter fairy images, and some pretty pink posh reindeer. I think she did a fab job at colouring them in.

I helped die cut some panels for the background, at Piper’s instructions of course, and I helped plan out the chibitronics circuit so that we could get the windows to light up. She seemed pretty sure on what she wanted it to do!

See the roof – apparently that is a chocolate chip icecream effect and the doorstep is a toadstool effect. Bless her! She is a funny chicken! When you press the door, the windows light up! Here’s a look.

I am so proud of my girl. She did a great job, and she was so good on the stream. Thanks again for watching and for your lovely comments. She beams with pride and excitement when i read them out to her.

I will leave you there – have a very Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you and your family have a very happy holiday!

From, Lesley, Craig and lil’ Crafter Extraordinaire Piper!
