Tea for You Treat Tube





I am participating in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Some Like it Hot! It's your interpretation of Hot; whether it's tea/coffee, hot summer day or a spicy recipe.

I am having fun right now with the CTMH's Clear Treat Tubes. I filled this one up with David's Tea's Chocolate Rocket Tea. There is enough in here to make 4 cups of tea.

I used Close to My Heart's Pathfinding & Seaside Paper Packets with CTMH's Chocolate cardstock.

To colour the chocolate tea in the cups, I used Copic Markers E59 & E57 and stamped the image with Memento Black ink.

I used CTMH's Cup of Cheer, Crafted with Love (for you) and July's Stamp of the Month - Circus Alphabet (T) stamp sets with CTMH's Black & Juniper inks.

The Treat Box was traced and cut out from a template that I kept from a CTMH Valentine's Day Promotion a few years back.

Trick or Treat









The Gift Card with this Treat Tube is a 1x1 Card.

I used Close to My Heart's Scaredy Cat Paper Packet with CTMH Thistle and Black cardstocks.

To embellish CTMH's My Creations Clear Treat Tube, I used CTMH Black Embroidery Floss (discontinued), CTMH Sponge Dauber with CTMH Black ink and Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities.

I used CTMH's Frightfully Fun, Holiday Tags (To & From) and Countdown (stars) stamp sets with Momento Black ink and CTMH Black ink.

The treat box was made from the pre-made treat boxes that I got in an old CTMH Valentine's Day Promotion. I kept a few on hand to use as a template.

I used the following Copic Markers: Orange - YR18 & YR12; Grey - W3 & W0; Green - YG25 ~ Twice; Cream - YR20 & YR000; Purple - RV66 & V05; Light Purple - RV63 ~ Twice; Black - 100 and Yellow - YR12 ~ Twice.

After finishing my two Halloween Cards on the two previous posts to today, I was all excited that I had used all the stamps from the New CTMH Frightfully Fun stamp set. My excitement quickly ended when I noticed that I hadn't used the stamp "Boo!".

So, I decided to make this treat tube up with the word "Boo!" so that I could finally say that I used every stamp on this stamp set.

Close to My Heart Jewellery




I am not of a jewellery person, but I do enjoy my necklaces with meaning and I am in love with Close to My Heart's New Bracelet. CTMH's New Pendant Necklaces that you can customize and Oval Cuff Bracelets are totally my style.

The first necklace with my "D" Monogram (for Donna Digby), I used the following CTMH Base & Bling Faux Antiqued Silver Products: Chain, Oval Pendant, Craft Queen Charm and Rhinestone Charm. The "D" came from CTMH's New Base & Bling Signature Style Sheet (sticker sheet). I used CTMH's Liquid Glass to adhere the Oval Glass Cover.

The second necklace with the camera charm, I used the following CTMH Base & Bling Faux Antiqued Gold Products: Chain, Square Pendant and Craft Queen Charm. The "See the Beauty in the World" quote came from CTMH's Base & Bling Journey Style Sheet (sticker sheet). I used CTMH's Liquid Glass to adhere the Square Glass Cover.

The third necklace with Amy & TJ's photo in it, I used the following CTMH Base & Bling Faux Antiqued Silver Products: Chain, Circle Pendant, Free Thinker Charm and Storyteller Charm. The photo was printed at Japan Camera (local wet photo lab). I used CTMH's Liquid Glass to adhere the Circle Glass Cover. My last name is Digby and this photo was taken of my children in Digby, Nova Scotia.

The CTMH Base & Bling Faux Antiqued Silver Oval Cuff was the easiest project of them all; except for trying to pick out which fabulous quote sticker I wanted to use. The quote sticker came from CTMH's Base & Bling Journey Style Sheet (sticker sheet). I used CTMH's Liquid Glass to adhere the Oval Glass Cover.

I have had the photo necklace done for a while. I made up the other two necklaces and the bracelet in less than 20 minutes the other night.
