Spring Extravaganza Projects....


Evening All,

My Spring Extravaganza was a little bit later this year and with all the computer problems I had with loading up windows 10 the instructions were put way back down my list of things to sort.
With thanks to Matthew ( Maria lovely nephew who fixed the problem for me) I am here with the projects we all made.

I based the projects on Birthday Celebrations.  The stamp set everyone got was the Balloon Celebration one and a few opted for the matching punch as a great bundle.

The first project was a large 6" card with a matching exploding box complete with another box inside perfect for a jewellery gift with a hidden insert.  The main box has a lid as well so it all holds together nicely.  I used the Its my Party paper stack.



The second project was an expanding birthday card with all the details on the inside.



As you undo the ribbon the centre expands to read Happy Birthday.



Project three was two cards both with pop up centres and a matching cake gift box.

A lot of work but Hey! its great to go home with lots of projects complete.



If you would like to have a go, the instructions are also available on the right hand side,
Thanks Jenny:-)xx

Floral Phrases & Detailed Floral Thinlits Stamp Class


Hello everyone,

We had fun this week with the Floral Phrases and matching Detailed Floral Thinlits dies.

I really love Night of Navy, its one of my staple wardrobe colours!  I'm always in navy trousers in the Autumn hee hee

For this week's stamp class we mixed Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and crisp Thick white for the colour combination.  The large gift box will hold 6 cards and their envelopes for a  gift set or mixing it up you could use it for a gift also.


I used both butterfly framelits, but only the one stamp set Floral Phrases.


As it mostly has wedding/thanks sentiments, I was thinking of a little table gift,
so the little box with one of the clear treat boxes inside was perfect, complete with the added sturdy yet delicate design of the framelit cover.  
Either fill with a smelly, mints or a tealight for a table decoration.


If you want the instructions to all the projects, they are available on the right hand side.

Love & Affection Stamp Class


Morning Everyone, 

Most of these projects were the ones I made for my Open House at the beginning of June.  
I was asked by the attendees to make them in class, so we made them over a couple of weeks.

The stamp set is called Love & Affection and they all have the Affectionately Yours Speciality Paper on them in one way or another.

The huge gift bag is made from our very strong Kraft Cardstock which is available in packs of 12.  You need two sheets to make this very large gift bag.


The stamp class instructions has a few other gift ideas as well.  The covered pegs are a fun gift to give.



The cucumber crush really pops against the night of navy in these papers don't they?


A set of matching Note Cards in white or kraft are always very useful.


The instructions are available on the right hand side.
Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

Baby Bear Stamp Class


Hello Everyone,

Cute little Baby Bear Class for this week.

I only used one stamp set to make this class as well, its called Baby Bear and its such a reasonable price at £23.  The Bear is actual huge.  These cards are all nearly 6" x 6" in size, so you can see how large the bear is.


I used two of the new in colours Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo.


The bears are three images.


The little bags have the new Pom Pom Trim on them.



These are the two colours. 


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

Rose Wonder Mini Album and Case Stamp Class Now Available.


Hello Everyone,

Can you believe its the end of June today!  We have been away just Hubbie and I to Canada which was very lovely.  Our boys stayed behind to look after Sid and go to work!  It was a nice break just the two of us plus we got lovely greetings when we arrived home.  
That was before seeing all the washing up and piles of washing that I had waiting for me!
Sid looked well fed though but all the food that I had brought for the boys to eat was still in the fridge, so not too sure what they survived on!!!  We missed them but hey ho! Times move on to the next stage in our lives don't they?

Before we went away one of my Stamp Classes was this Rose Wonder Mini Album in a Decorated Gift Box using the Envelope Punch Board.
 I made it in two colour combinations as it was near the end of one catalogue but in the preorder of the New Stampin' UP! Catalogue.

This is the Melon Mambo version, using the new Pop of Paradise special papers.


The Mini Album is completely loose but can be stored and gifted in the cover gift box.


This is the Black and Sahara Sand Version using the Timeless Elegance papers which are now retired but it shows a different look. 


This is the inside of the gift box.


The album has plenty of pages with two pockets on each page and flaps and layers to hold a lot of lovely memories.  Its a really tactile album with all the areas to add photo's and memento's.


All the instructions include step by step colour photo's 31 pages full of them,
The instructions are available on the right hand side.

Don't forget its the last chance today to JOIN Stampin' UP! to get TWO FREE stamp sets and your starter kit for £99.  Email me if you want to chat.

Also today is the last day to place a £250 order and GET £50 worth of extra FREE products.
You can order online with me, or email me if you want to collect and have FREE shipping.

My In Colour club starts tomorrow as well, if you want to join in let me know.

Detailed Floral Thinlits


Hello Everyone,

Well I finally had 5 minutes to open up my order today.  House is lovely and full with both Boys - Well Men! home, so my chores seem to double hee hee

I opened up the Detailed Floral Thinlits as I loved the display in the catalogue so much so I decided to play with those first.

Very quick and simple cards.  A couple have a hint of the matching papers and the sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set which you can buy as a bundle with these framelits.


You can also cut out the edges as shown below, so much detail.


This is cut in white and layered onto the Night of Navy.  The thick bakers twine in white is also a new product.

Jenny:-)xx

Scrapbook Club Tonight.


Hello Everyone,

Isn't the weather finally gorgeous?  

These are my pages for tonight's Scrapbook Club.

Really enjoyed using the New Sweet sugarplum colour.  I mixed it with Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron.

I used the Number of Years stamp set and the Watercolour Wings for the butterflies, both with the matching framelits.

The Letters are NEW in the catalogue, they are perfect for scrapbooking.

The paper on the embossed section is the New envelope paper, really nice patterns.

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-) xx

Love You Lots



Good Morning Everyone,

Been a busy couple of days.  It was time to collect Robert from University - Two Years done!  One to go.  We combined collecting him with a little getaway for Hubbie, Sid and Me!

Firstly these are a few ideas for the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp set.
You can use your Stampin Rewards to purchase if your order or totals go over £150.  You will earn £15 and this little set is only £8 in the clear version.


I have used some of the New Layering framelits, which are available. I've used the squares on the top two cards and the hearts on the bottom card.

Just love these little hedgehogs, so cute!


We stayed in a Camping Pod, a bit of Glamping! he hee

We had gorgeous weather, so we could have our tea outside and go for lots of walks.



The site is called Picket Pods near Cowbridge, South Wales.  There's only 7 pods, which was really nice and quiet.  We were woken up by birds which was lovely.


This building had a full size kitchen, showers, toilets etc.


This is the inside, the futon bed, folds down for a double bed, plenty of room for a couple of camp beds as well.


In the next field along were these beauties - I'm a bit mad for cows. Love them.

They were sitting down at the far end of the field, they came over to the gate when I called them.

I think I may have been a cowgirl in a previous life!! 

Actually I think they were more interested in Sid!  As one lick his nose.


Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

Affectionately Yours Desk Set.


Morning Everyone,

It took me a couple of days to actually cut up this gorgeous embossed sheet of paper from the Affectionately Yours Designer paper pack!
Anyone else like that?
I managed to make it go quite away though.
One covered A4 notebook, a pen tin and a little memo holder.


I even had enough to cover some clothes pegs for my Open House Wish Lists.


Have a lovely day,
Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx
