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.

Thank you for everyone who sent me Birthday Cards for my Birthday last Monday, they were all lovely.

Thanks for looking,

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,
Thanks for looking,

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;-)

Happy Watercolor Sneak Peak......

Afternoon Everyone,

I'm back today with a little Sneak Peak from the New Mini Catalogue that goes LIVE on Tuesday 28th January.  The stamp set is called Happy Watercolor.  Its a lovely set for watercolouring, which is so relaxing.

I am having a little colour challenge over on my Downline Blog with the Bloomin Buds,
Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight & Always Artichoke, 
this is my sample.

The flowers are colours in with both strawberry slush and daffodil delight, then some crystal effect was added to them, they really pop in real life.

The tag was made with the New Scallop Tag Punch and the corner rounder and then embossed with the SAB FREE embossing folder.

I used the edgelits for a side border and the apothecary accents framelits for the sentiment which is also in this set.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,
Thanks for looking

Flower Shop Mini Album Anniversary Card........

I've had a few jobs to do this past week, this was one of them.

Muriel contacted me asking for a 70TH Anniversary card for a couple that got married in 1944.

This is what I came up with.  I had previously done a 70th Birthday card which was similar which Muriel liked so I went with the same Marina Mist, Smoky Slate and White for the colour combination.

I used the Label Framelits.  The stamp sets were Flower Shop, Polka Dot Pieces, Memorable Moments and a New Petite Petals Stamp Set from the Spring Mini Catalogue which goes live 28th January.....

I made a couple of clay flowers to decorate the sides of the Framelits.    The marina mist frame was made with two framlits and embossed with the fancy fan embossing folder.

I used smoky grey chevron ribbon to tie the album together.

This is the inside, where a photo will be entered behind the centre frame of the happy couple.

The Wedding date was added to the sides and the front section was decorated with a few more punched flowers.  OH YES the Petite Petals has a punch to match!  Its really cute.

The papers were from the subtles and neutrals paper packs.

The photo can be placed here behind the marina mist frame.  The bird was punched out with the bird punch.

Pearls were added to the centre of the flowers.

Its in the post so fingers crossed they will like the Special Card for their Special Day.

Back to Crafting......Hooray!

Happy New Year Everyone.....

Hooray!  Back to Crafting after a bit of a holiday. 

It was Scrapbook Club yesterday, two lovely sessions and we made a New Year Spread to start off 2014.

I used some New Products which will soon be available after 28th January during Sale a Bration.....
These will be available FREE with an order of £45.  There are lots of different choices to choose from, so watch out.  I used a stamp set called Petal Parade.  The paper is called Sweet Sorbet.  The colour combination is Pool Party, Crisp Cantelope, Pistachio Pudding, Black and Sahara Sand.

Stampin' Up! also have a New Spring Mini Catalogue coming out at the end of January.  
My preorder arrived yesterday and I grabbed a couple of kits that will be available to order from the New catalogue to have a little play.

One of the kits is a very Pretty Wreath, gorgeous colours.  Everything is included in the kits to reproduce the project.

You need a Hot Glue Gun for attach the flowers to the Wreath.
The flowers are so easy to make and it was really nice for a change to have something prepared for me to make hee hee. 

If you want to see a copy of the New Spring Catalogue for ordering from the end of January email me and I will get one in the post to you.  They came yesterday, so are all ready to go....

The other kit was a Simply Created Mini Memories Album.
There's lots of spaces to add photo's, journalling, pockets to store keepsakes etc.

The front and back covers are clear embossed with images.

You get three sheets of labels, borders, images and sentiments to decorate your pages.
These are the layouts I came up with.....

You also get gold bakers twine, buttons, gold sequins and heart clips.
A large white envelope and a printed kraft bag.

I cut the kraft bag in half to make extra pockets for storage.
The closure was made from two of the buttons added with 3d dimensionals and I wrapped around the bakers twine to form the closure.

The top end of the gift back was glued to the flap of the envelope, so you can also use the envelope for storage, as well as the end of the gift bag.

Plenty of room to add your photo's.

You can see all the pages here.

My Next Extravaganza is on Saturday 1st March.  I still have a few places left, so if you fancy coming for an ALL Day Crafting Session, Email to BOOK your place.  £35 which includes a FREE Stamp set.
