Afternoon Everyone,

Happy Spring! Can you believe its March already?

I have a choice of three colour combinations for you today using the Sale a Bration stamp set called Happy Birthday to YOU which you can earn for FREE with a £45 only available up the end of March.

The first colour is Rocco Rose , Bacic Grey and Granny Apple Green.  The matching dies are now available while stock last to purchase.  So if you hate cutting out my hand they are great value.  There's always something extra in the set of dies.  I used the coastal weave embossing folder for the back ground and the matching in colour designer paper pack.

This colour is the Seaside Spray and Basic Grey.

The little handbags are the All Dressed Up Dies that are on page 56 of the Spring Catalogue.

For the last set I used purple posy, now the ink pad had problems but you can still get the card stock and matching blends for colouring.

I used silver foil for the buckles on the little handbag.  They are so cute you can fit a bottle of perfume, hand cream or a set of 3 x 3 cards and envelopes in them.

The sentiments are all from the same stamp set.

The stitched shapes are in the same set of dies with the rectangles.

The leaves are also from the matching Happy Birthday dies.

Stampin' UP! Forever Blossoms Stamp Class

Afternoon All,

I am so ready for Spring, Aren't you?

Have you seen the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the Spring Catalogue yet?  
If not where have you been? :-)

The designer series papers are so gorgeous the photo just doesn't do it justice. They have a foil element going through them and they are just so elegant.

I have used Petal Pink, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz for my colour combination for this stamp class.  The Stampin' Blends were used for most of the colouring and I added a wink of stella over the top for some shimmer.

The amazing embossing folder is the Parisan Flourish 3D embossing folder.
If you don't know already you do need a blue embossing plate with your bigshot if you purchase any of our new embossing folders. Give me a shout if you haven't got one and I will get one on order for you.  The impression is so gorgeous and deep without cracking any card stock.

I like to make gift sets, its so handy to have them ready to pop a little something inside for a special occasion. I used one of Stampin' UP! copper tins, they come in sets of 4.

I stamped the flowers in basic grey and then used the blends to colour in.  A few champagne rhinestones finish it off after die cutting it with the forever blossoms dies.

I can not seem to make a card these days without using the Stitched so Sweetly dies, which are a set of 10 dies, 6 different sizes of rectangles.  This is the largest. You can find them on page 20 of the spring catalogue.  If you don't have a catalogue just message me and I will get one straight to you.

For this card, I used the large rectangle die to cut out the middle and them ran the layer through the bigshot with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder to make a frame.  It was then popped up with 3D pads and the middle was glued in flat.
The sentiments are the free sale abration set which you can earn by placing a £45 order with me.

See I used the dies on this Z fold card for the middle, makes such a different with the stitching around the edge.

And YES again on this one.

Do you Scrapbook?

My Scrapbook Club is on every month and we make 2 full size pages.  I use the Stampin' Up! Project Life pockets as well as the normal page covers they go so well with each other.

I just so happen to use the same colour combination and added an Eiffel Tower ready for some holiday photos to go from our trip to Paris, so its perfect.

All the photo's will be 6" x 4" or 4" x 3"

If you fancy coming to my Scrapbook Club, I do have a couple of space places.  I keep the numbers low so you can spread out doing your pages.  Its once a month in my Craft Studio.
They can also be sent to you if you want to do them at home.

Stampin' UP! Extravaganza Project

Morning Everyone,

Back today with one of my Stampin' Up! Extravaganza projects for you.

I used the Perfectly Plaid Bundle with includes the tree punch for my all day event which the ladies got to keep and take home with them.

The first project was a Lit Tree Frame gift, using one of the ribba frames from Ikea.  The lights can be found on amazon, just type in LED battery lights and a few will come up.

The star dies were used to decorate the background and a stitched square die was used for the base.

We made a matching dutch fold card in the same style so would make a lovely handmade gift set for christmas.  The plaid papers have a luxury look with the gold foiling running through them.

Pop over to my shop if you fancy the bundle.

Christmas Rose Stamp Class

Morning Everyone,

Have you seen the new Christmas Time limited bundle that Stampin' UP! have just released yet?

It is gorgeous.  The papers have foiling on them on one side and the main image can be cut out using the matching die.

I love large cards for Christmas, Don't you?  Its a special time of year to give out cards.

This is a DL size card, 21cm x 21cm scored at 10.5cm.  The section cut off a sheet of A4 then becomes the front layer.

I used the stamparatus to line up the images for this version. I stamped the outline in Mossy Meadow, the leaves in Soft Sea Foam and the rose in cherry cobbler.  If you inked is a juicy one, you can use a dauber to ink up the image for a for distinctive look.

 These images are just the paper. The gold gift boxes are a real look of luxury this year.

A few more using the stamped image and paper designs.
The gold shimmer ribbon and the gold glitter enamel dots are also in the suite.

Pop over to my shop and take a look for yourself.

Stampin' UP! Christmas Extravaganza2019

Morning Everyone,

Hope you are well.

It was my Stampin' UP! Christmas Extravaganza last Sunday, Can you believe its only 50 days until Christmas......Gulp!

I had a very full room of lovely crafters, it was lovely to see everyone again plus some new ladies.

Everyone arrived and collected their Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and matching punch, theirs to keep and made some projects at home with.

 These were the glittery gift bags that I made tags for to give the bundle in.

Do you like my New Stampin' Up! Tablecloth?

I made some covered notebooks, pens and name tags for everyone.

These were the Table decorations for this year, a wreath with poinsettia flowers made from the bauble punches in this years christmas catalogue.  They have lights on as well.

These are the table settings for every one.  Some chocolate to keep up their stamping strength! :-)

In the morning we made the Christmas Frame and matching dutch fold card.  In the afternoon session they made a trio of gift boxes and cards.

I took lots of samples for inspiration.

I have scrapbook classes as well as Stamp Classes.

I'll be back with these samples as we made these this week.

These are the samples made using the baubles stamp set and punches that I used for my table decorations.

I have give two table prizes away for every table.

My next Stampin' UP! Extravaganza will be in May 2020

If you fancy coming along let me know and I will put you on my mailing list.
