DIY Christmas Cards

Hi everyone

Today I thought I would share with you how I have made these super easy Christmas cards.  Even though its not December yet it’s never too early to start writing out Christmas cards to family and friends.

What you will need

  • Paint
  • Sponge / paint brush
  • Card / paper (my cards were 14cm x 28 cm folded in half so it became a square)
  • exacto / stanley knife or scissors
  • Stencil christmas-card-stencil

So first you will need to print out a stencil onto an A4 sheet of paper or you can trace it onto a sheet of plastic or cardboard so that you can reuse it ( I used paper).

Then using an exacto/ stanley  knife I cut out my stencil, make sure that you have enough paper on the sides of your cut outstencil so that the paint won’t go over the edge (my tree one didn’t have enough paper on the edge so some paint went over).

Now squirt out your paint onto a paint pallet and place your stencil over your card.

Using one hand get your sponge or paint brush and dab the paint over the stencil and using the other hand hold the stencil down (try and make sure that the stencil doesn’t move).

Next carefully remove the stencil from your card and your done.

You can then use different stencils and colours. Also a little tip is once you have done one let the stencil dry for a little bit and you can use it for as many cards as you want.

I really hope you have enjoyed and are as excited as I am for Christmas. I am planning on doing a lot more Christmas inspired posts so stay tuned for those.

Also the printable-december-calendar is ready just in time for you to start writing all your Christmas plans on, hope you enjoy.

Hi everyone

Today I thought I would try out this recipe to make an British ice-cream that I had seen in Seanelliottoc vlog as where I live they are not sold and I just thought it would be fun to try and make them.

Firstly you will need to gather your equiptment and ingredients

  • Butter or Cream
  • Chocolate buttons
  • Sprinkles
  • Rainbow Paddle Pop
  • Saucepan
  • Spatula

Then open all of your Rainbow Paddle pops and place them on a plate and put them into the freezer so that they stay frozen.

Next I placed butter or cream to equal parts chocolate into my saucepan (I would recommend to use cream as it tastes better but I didn’t have any at home so I had to use butter).

Next place your saucepan over a very low heat to melt your butter or cream with your chocolate which will create a chocolate ganache.

Then I got my Paddle Pops out of the freezer and put all the sprinkles and chocolate ganache onto plates.

Then get your rainbow Paddle Pop and coat it into your chocolate ganache using a spatula or spoon. ( I would advise you to do this quickly as possible as the chocolate began to set as I put it on and the sprinkles wouldn’t stick Ooops ).

Then quickly try and coat the ice-cream in sprinkle before the chocolate ganache sets, and continue to do this until all your ice-creams are done.

And then you’re done, If you are not going to eat them straight away obviously you will need to put them into a container and place them back into the freezer.

I hope that you have enjoyed this post, hopefully your ones will turn out a bit better if you give them try as you can learn from my mistakes.

Thanks for reading, hope you are all having a lovely day xx

Current Makeup Favourites

Hi everyone

Hope you have all been having a lovely week, here are some of my makeup faves that I thought I would share with you.

Firstly is the Sleek au naturel eyeshadow palette, I bought this from Target. I think it is a good starter palette as it has lots of nude/smokey shades that aren’t too bold and a few shimmery shades. It gives a decent amount of colour but I find I need to put a fair bit on my brush before the colour really starts to show up.

This is the nude by nature mineral pressed cover in the colour light. I use this to set my foundation and I feel that it does a really good job at that, it leaves the prefect amount on so that the foundation is set but not too much so that it looks  powdery.

Next is the Rimmel Kate Moss lip stick in the colour 55 My Nude. I really love the colour of this, it is the perfect nude shade for my lips and is super easy to apply (the photo makes it look a lot pinker then it is in real life).

lastly is a few of my longer term favourites, firstly is the Profusion mascara which I was given last year for christmas and absolutely love it, it leaves my eyelashes looking longer but still has a very natural look (I haven’t been able to find where it is sold so if any one has seen it could you please let me know, thanks xx). Next it the Maybelline Browsatin in the shade medium brown, I love this as it has two sides so there is a retractible pencil on one side so you can outline them and the other side has a sponge thing that you can use to fill them in.

Lastly is the Rimmel 9 in 1 matte BB cream in the shade Light, I have liked this for a long time because it gives a good amount of coverage but not too much and looks very natural. It is also super easy to blend in, light weight and I find that it lasted all day long.

Thanks
