Hedgehog Hollow June 2018 Unboxing

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today is the Hedgehog Hollow June 2018 Unboxing! This one is super exciting as everything was designed by Alexandra from Hedgehog Hollow. The box is themed around making projects for males. Something that can be hard to do sometimes. You can see previous unboxings here and here.

There is not one, not two but three stamp sets in the Hedgehog Hollow June 2018 box! The large Diamond Plate Background stamp as well as the Denim Pocket and Masculine Sentiments stamp sets. The Denim pocket stamp set has words for every male relative, grandfather, dad, step dad, uncle etc as well as some other sentiments as well. The masculine sentiments is chock full of assorted sentiments.

The Demin Pocket dies not only contain the die to cut the pocket out but also has three small word dies. Then we also have the large Hand Lettered (by Alexandra) Die. I love getting the word dies in the boxes as I don’t have very many big ones just a few tiny ones.

The Hedgehog Hollow June 2018 box also contained the regular 5 half sheets of Neenah Solar White and some extra pieces of coloured cardstock. There are also two pieces of patterned paper. For those with a rolling subscription we got a sneak peek at Tonics Arabian Nights collection. We received Nuvo embossing powder in Copper Blush, it’s a very nice colour.

Sorry for the lateness of the video. I was exhausted after Vivid and then something happened within my family that took precedence over getting a video out on time. I will try to be consistent but at the moment things are up in the air. Family things are definitely taking priority at this time! Thank you for your patience and understanding! Let me know below what your favourite item in the box is. I hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy of your own. Bye for now.

Hedgehog Hollow March 2018 LDRS Box

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Holy wow did I have to wait a long time for my Hedgehog Hollow March 2018  box. USPS must have sent it around the world or something lol. It usually takes a week and a half to get something from the states but I had to wait twice that 🙁 Anyway it’s here now and all is good! You can see what I got in my first box here.

The Hedgehog Hollow March 2018  box contains lots of goodies from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps or LDRS for short. It is excellent value for money this month for sure. We got an awesome envelope die that is big enough to hold a gift card. I got the fairy!!! The die set is called Fairy Fantasy. I still think I want the other one too though, that’s called Love Letter.

We also got not one but two six inch paper collections. Twelve sheets of each, which is half a stack. The collections we got are Sweet Pea and Pretty Perfect. Alexandra also chose four hybrid ink cubes to match our papers. The colours are La-La-Lavender, Pink Tutu, Key Lime Pie and Raven. Best of all the LDRS hybrid inks work with both watercolouring and alcohol markers 😀 This makes me a very happy girl as I do both and it’s a pain swapping ink pads all the time lol. I just need a re-inker now as of course spots don’t last as long as full sized pads.

We also got our cute lil Minnie Winnie & Furry Fabulous stamp and die set. The dies even match all the accessories for the dog and Winnie. Because I am a regular subscriber I also got some clear embossing powder. I was hoping for white but ah well lol. Finally we got Neenah Solar white and some other card stocks as well as velum to make cards with. I can’t wait to give this stuff a go.

Is there anything you like from the box? What would you make? Thanks for joining me.

Hedgehog Hollow Lawn Fawn Easter Wreath Card March 2018

Happy Easter Fellow Alchemists, 

Welcome to my first Easter card using The Hedgehog Hollow’s Lawn Fawn February box. (It’s my second really but my first video is having issues!) We’ve got Some Bunnies and Spring Sprigs galore 🙂 Enjoy the video and my foibles along the way lol. You can see my unboxing of the first box here.

There were a few technical difficulties making this card too! First missing stamps that took hours to find. I’d been helping my son in-law with a project and they disappeared in the meantime. Then there was the panel that got stuck down when I should have waited lol. There was no run through before I shot the video so these things are bound to happen! The Easter card got there in the end though.

This was a lot of fun to make, the eggs in the sprigs instead of the flowers, they look really cute. I do wish I’d chosen a more yellow colour instead of the cream so it popped a bit more but live and learn.

The first card will hopefully be up in the next day even if I have to reshoot what is messed up. The main problem is I only had one of each of some of the products used so reshooting the whole video is not an option. So we shall see what can be done, it’s in the last third of the video so am hoping it’s nothing major.

Here is a list of the colours I used:

Bunnies – Copics W5, W3, W1, W0, W00 Ears WOO, RV10, R21

Eggs pairs –  R21, R10. Bg15, BG13. B00, B02. BV01, Bv02. V15 and Promarker V546. Promarkers O929, O949.

Promarkers and VCopics work really well together 🙂

Thanks for doing some arty crafty alchemy with me

The Hedgehog Hollow Box February 2018 with a Twist

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Guess what was in my mailbox when I got home today? My February 2018 box from The Hedgehog Hollow full of Lawn Fawn goodness. When I was watching Creativation videos,  I stumbled upon Alexandra’s YouTube channel and watched a few videos, then I saw a video for a huge announcement and had to see what was happening. So when the announcement was made for a box that would feature a different company every month I was intrigued and decided to sign up.  I thought it was a good way to try products from a different companies especially as most of them I wouldn’t buy because prices in Australia are super high for craft items.
