Rev up the Fun with Banner Blast Stamp Class....

For this week's Stamp Class we had a break from flowers!  Gosh it was hard - hee hee.

I used the Rev up the Fun stamp set as well as a Sale a Bration set called Banner Blast, which does have a matching punch!

The colour combination is Pacific point, real red, smoky slate and basic black.

To go with the banner theme, we used the New Banner framelits as well.

One of the cards we made was this fun moving pully card.

Simple Stems Stamp Class.....

Morning Ladies,

The sun is out!  Not sure for how long this weekend, but its great to have lighter mornings.
I'm trying to catch up with all my instructions, so bare with me.

This was my Simple Stems stamp class last week. 

We used  the fresh prints paper stack, great value at £6.25 per pad.  So I went for two colour combinations, using a mixture of Coastal Cobana, Real Red,  Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake.

We made large cards for a change, you can see the difference in height in this photo.
Mother's Day is coming up over here soon, so the larger card is in order.

If you want to play along, then the instructions are on the right.

Petite Petals Tri-Shutter Album Ready....

Afternoon Everyone,

Well we are still here after all this horrid weather.  The noise from the wind was so loud last night!  
Our shed roof has blown off for the second time this year at the allotment.  It is so heavy to move back in place.  We've been really luckily that its landed away from things we have growing.

As requested by you, I have found the time to do the instructions for my Anniversay Special Card/Album that I made for Muriel back at the beginning of February.  

The instructions are on the right hand side if you want to have a go.
You do need two pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock.

Hope you have a nice weekend,

Scrapbook Club - Happy Valentine's Day.....

Hello Everyone,

The sun is out finally!  Not for long so the weather forecast says!

For this month's Scrapbook Club, I decided to go for a You and Me Layout especially as it so close to Valentine's Day.

We had a lovely morning this morning,  I made use of the lovely valentine products we still have available.  The notelets are pre printed around the outer edge but I used the Flowerful Heart stamped in real red and cut out with the heart framelit.  The smaller heart is from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set.

For the little gift, a little heart tin with a smelly candle.  Nice smelling mind you! and a bit of chocolate....
The bags came with the tags and bakers twine, I just stamped the heart on the tag and added a itty bitty flower with a rhinestone to it.

The heart tins are from

The candles were from sainsburys.

Our full heart punch fits the top of the tins, which was embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder,
Free during Sale a Bration.

This is the You and Me Layout.

I went for Black, Real Red, Coastal Cobana and Whisper white colour combination.  The papers are the New Mini Paper stack in the Mini Catalogue.

I used the chevron border punch along the edges.  Had this punch for ages and finally used it!  
The ampersand embossing folder was used for the middle and I embossed the YOU and ME with the arrows embossing folder.  The Real Red layer was stamped with the Language of Love stamp set.
The Hearts are the mats for photo's and the smaller heart is the Full Heart punch 

This is the other half of the layout.

Three mats for photo's and three journalling tags hidden behind them.  
They were made with the angled top punch.

The language of love stamp set used again here for the smaller hearts, which were punched out with the tiny heart punch.

Another tag was made with the paper from the prints paper stack.  It's great you have lots of designs and four of each one.  The sentiment You and Me here is from the Perfect pennant stamp set in the Mini Catalogue.

Hope you have a happy day on Valentine's Day,

Stippled Blossoms Stamp Class.....

Morning Everyone,

We revisited the Stippled Blossoms Stamp set for this weeks Stamp Class.

I decided to use two colour combinations, either Rose Red and Blushing Bride,  or Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and Soft Sky for the second combination.

I does involve a tiny bit of cutting out - Wink;-) but its well worth it,

Especially the 3D version of the large flower, Gorgeous.

There are two versions of flip cards included in the class using the label framelits.

Petal Parade Stamp Class.....

Afternoon Everyone,

These were made during my first Stamp Class back after Christmas, using a Sale a Bration Stamp Set called Petal Parade.

I went for the colours in the Sweet Sorbet papers which is another Sale a Bration product which you can earn for FREE.

The New Scallop Top Tag Punch makes a great little closure for the inside of the box as well.
It fits a Creme Egg!!! hee hee, Mmm wonder where that went!

Five very soft cards and a matching mini gift box all using the New Scallop Top Tag PUNCH.
Which is absolutely fantastic, it punches out the little notch at the same time as well.  There are actually two tag top punches, but I only used the scallop top one, Hey Ho!

If you want to have a go, then the instructions are available on the right hand side,

Morning All,

This is the double spread we did in November Scrapbook Club using the Festive Flurry stamp set and matching framelits.

I used Night of Navy and Smoky Slate with a hint of silver.

The night of navy border was stamped and I used the silver foil sheets to cut out the Merry section with the Thinlits dies.  The border is the silver glitter card decorated with the scallop border punch. 

This is the other side of the spread.  The snowflake are hanging from the glitter border with the silver taffeta ribbon.  The letters are in the silver foil sheets as well, it just fitted along the top!

The snowflakes have lots of tiny rhinestones and the middle ones are the silver glitter card.

The smoky slate textured cardstock is still available until the 1st February.

Hope you have a nice Sunday, 
It's raining all day today, so I have lined myself up with lots of stamping to do, What a shame;-)
