Top Note Bigshot Class.....

What a lovely evening last night! It was the next Bigshot Club Class and for this one I based it on the Top Note. Believe me there are so many more ways of using that lovely die but we couldn't be crafting all day and night now could we???

I've already got my family fighting over Socks, Pants and Trousers!

We used the Butterflies in the last Bigshot class, so this time I used the Fun Flowers, which is a fabulous die. The flowers are such a pretty shape.

The Top Note Gift Box which fit the little bars of flavoured chocolate from Thorntons so very well. I don't know how I know that??????? The box is very deep as well.
In this class is a couple of more of the paper bag gift bags. These are fab for making and they fold flat for storing until you need to use one.
Right Then, We are off to a couple of Spring Shows this weekend. Kingston Lacy has one and Sherbourne Castle one as well.

Hope you all have a nice Bank Holiday Weekend.

Thanks for looking,

Clearly For You Stamp Class.....

Hello Everyone...

Sorry for the lack of blog posts but someone keeps pinching my days. It's revision time in our house for GCSE's at the moment and keeping everyone on track and me is hard work! Then again I am not looking forward to the apparent 10 weeks of summer holiday my son has just informed me off!

We did have a morning off on Saturday and went to the Spring Tide Food Festival at Burton Bradstock which was lovely as well as delish! Sid was not amused as he had to wait outside and we took it in turns to go in and shop. There is a lovely little car park and cafe there, well worth a visit for a plesant walk along the beach. You can see so much of the coast line. Apparently it was on last year as well.

Right then, I am out of sync with my classes, but hopefully I will be back on track tomorrow!

We did this class this morning. It's using the Clearly For You Stamp set which is in the Mini Catalogue. It's a cute stamp set with lots of elements in it. I decided to do some normal sized cards and some tiny ones which fit inside the Scallop Envelope Die.

They are such a cute size, perfect for a little note or turn them into a Gift Tags. You can also get a fair few from one sheet of cardstock.

The colour combination is Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede. I added a box to store the tiny cards in as well.

These birds remind me of the swallows we have been seeing at the moment. They are lovely to watch, so quick.

I also added a Bonus Project, using the Bevelled Windowpanes which are also in the Mini Catalogue. I used the large ones in the pack to make a special card and then a matching keyring.

They are so quick to make and the satin ribbon fits perfectly through the two slits in the bevelled windowpanes.

These are the keyrings. I added some ball chains to the ribbon to finish them off.

Right then,

Hungry boys need feeding, which in itself is a never ending job!

Build a Blossom Stamp Class......

Hello Everyone!

Is this bright enough for you?

I got my inspiration for the colour combination when I purchased some Bath Smellies from Asda. They matched Regal Rose, So Saffron and Whisper white!!! It's so funny when you find things that are the same exact match as Stampin Up Colours.

The Stamp set is called Build a Blossom which is in the Mini Catalogue. He has a matching punch Yeah! The Blossom Petals Punch. The flower possibilies are endless but I had to stop somewhere!

I added some Gift Wrapping to the little Bath Smellies which are included in the Stamp Class.

I decorated the front with a flower which matched one of the cards.

I used Regal rose textured cardstock.
