Come Craft With Me

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!

Happy weekend crafty friends!

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the LIVE version of Come Craft With Me this Friday, then you can always watch the replay right here on Hungry Heffy Crafts, or over on the Hungry Heffy YouTube channel.

This Friday I ended up making two cards and a Christmas tag. Let’s take a look.

I created my own pink and blue striped panel using washi tape and some masking paper – I was trying out some new finger daubers that I got at last weeks craft fair. I then used my baby party animals stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to create the sweet critters. These guys are adorable in my opinion!

I added some inking to the background, stuck down some swiss dot embossed clouds and added some hearts and gems to the BABY panel. I love how it turned out!

Next up was a card with retirement in mind. My crafty friend Dennice has a boss who is leaving soon, and so I thought about making a card that would work for someone’s retirement. I wanted clean, simple and classic. So I embossed some rose gold embossing powder onto grey card and then cut out the letters to read Good Luck Boss – leaving a gap for another sentiment in the middle (from Mama Elephant Up & Away stamp set).

I didn’t have a lot of time left, so decided to make a tag. I had to use these Heffy Doodle Elfish Antics for this tag, they are cute, huh!?

I also used the sentiment from the Heffy Doodle Elfing Christmas words stamp set. For the tag I used Lawn Fawn scalloped rectangles, rounded rectangle dies and also some Avery Elle falling snow dies. The ribbon and jingle bells give it such a festive feel!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. At the moment I am working on creating an unboxing video for the Brother Scan n Cut CM900 machine, so watch this space!

Also – I should note – NO Come Craft With Me next Friday 24th November. It is the Christmas Fayre at Piper’s school and yours truly has been roped into doing some face painting! 🙂

Happy Crafting my friends!





Hello there friends,

Here’s the stream from last weeks Come Craft With Me LIVE crafty stream. This stream was a little bit different, as I took the advantage of this crafty time to prep some projects for my upcoming appearance on Create & Craft TV. EEK so exciting!

I am so delighted that I was asked to be a guest demonstrator for USA stamp company My Sentiments Exactly. MSE is an USA based stamp company that has been around for 20 years – in fact, I remember coming across them as I was packing shelves of the craft store that I used to work in (back in the day! ) 😀

As well as giving you a peek at the range of MSE stamps that are available via Create & Craft TV, I also made a fun card using the Mama Elephant Yeti stamps.

This card is a ‘congratulations you’re pregnant’ card – I thought that one of the yeti’s looked like she was holding her tummy- a classic mumma-to-be stance! And I laid them together so it looks like they are hugging a little. So cute! On the inside I added a greeting suggested by one of the viewers – ‘ get YETI for baby!’. i LOVE IT!

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to tune in to Create & Craft TV on Monday 13th November for my big screen debut at 9am and 5pm! WOO!
