Crossing The Bar

Hello Everyone.

This is a difficult post to write but my Dad sadly lost his 9 year battle to cancer on 30th July.  We said goodbye to him last week.  

I just want to apologise if some of my regular Friday posts are missing.

Dad had a lovely service and I am sure we did him proud.  My Dad fought to the end and I am so proud of him.  I just hope I have his courage and strength in the days, months, weeks, years to follow.

As my Dad served in the Royal Navy from 1962-1972 I wanted to share a couple of projects I made that I would have been sending to my Dad.

The Royal Navy was such a big part of his life and my brother and I then followed in his footsteps.  How could we not after listening to all his stories.

I have used the Come Sail Away Suite to create this box frame and the little post it note holder.





I love the sentiments from the stamp set.

My Dad would have love these little gifts, especially the little anchor and knots.

My Dad was excellent at Seamanship and he created knot boards and bell ropes in his spare time.

I think I get my creative side from him.




The heavens have gained a new star.  
Shine bright Dad.

Coffee Pouch Box

Hello everyone.

For todays project I have created a little gift.  I have made a little box to hold a coffee sachet.  

The box opens at the top with a little flap which I have used some gorgeous ribbon to keep it closed.

To make the box you need a piece of card stock that measures 6.5" X 8"

I have used some Mint Macaron to match the very gorgeous Mosaic Mood designer series paper.


Here are the measurements:

Score on the long side at 0.5", 6.5" and 7"
Score on the short side at 0.5", 3", 3.5" and  6"



I then covered the front with some designer series paper and added a little sentiment using the set called Free As A Bird.

I think this makes a very lovely gift for a friend or perhaps a thank you to your hostess.

Thanks for stopping by today.

If you wish to place an order just add me (Dawn Barwick) as your demonstrator.
