By the Tide....

Hello Everyone,

It's Father's day on Sunday here, so for stamp class last week we made some cards using the By the Tide stamp set.

The colour combination is Coastal Cobana, Night of Navy, Real Red, Baked brown sugar and Bermuda bay.

On a few of the cards I used the On Film framelits.  
I also used gorgeous grunge stamp set.

The sentiments are all from Teeny tiny wishes.

The larger framelit and the camera get embossed at the same time of cutting, so very nice design.

The paper is the small paper stack from the spring mini catalogue.
You get these cute arrows in the framelit kit.

Thanks for looking,

Project Life & Scrapbook Club.....

Morning Everyone,

It was Scrapbook Club yesterday and this is the double spread we made, using the Happy Watercolour stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue.

Project Life went Live to you yesterday with a small selection before our New Catalogue goes LIVE on 1st July.

It's based on the Becky Higgins divided pocket system, so I decided to make my pages look like the layout of the divided pockets using the New Framelits.  The framelits consist of a 6" x 4" and a 4" x 3" mats.

This is the first page.

This is the second page, a mirror image of the first.
I used Baked brown sugar, calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe and so saffron for the colour combination.

The stamp sets used were Happy Watercolour, Papillon potpourri and Yippee Skipee.

I also added Gold encore ink, gold foil card, gold sequins and the gold bakers twine,

Oh and not forgetting gold washi tape.  Stampin' up! are great for giving us all these co-ordinating products.

This is the opposite page.

We have a selection of Project Life which is available NOW, Pop over to my Online store or you can Email me to place an order.

The new corner rounder is super.  The Box with all the cards to go inside the divided pockets is great for holding your photo's as well, as there is a space in the back to store them. You can also store your journalling pens.

These are the framelits I used for my pages.

These are the divided pages.

Bloom with Hope with Blendabilities.

Hello Everyone,

These are the rest of the cards I made using the Hostess stamp set Bloom with Hope.
I hope to have more time this week to crack open the rest of the preorder.
I used the honeycomb embossing folder as it matches this paper stack.

The sentiments are all from a stamp set called Something to Say.
I used the scallop topper punch and coloured in the rhinestones with the darker rich razzleberry blendabilities.

I had to make one of my favourite z-fold cards.  I'm loving the new Project Life corner rounder.

You can see I've used it on most of the corners!

This was the card from the previous post.

Bloom with Hope

Well! Mr Brown didn't come until Tea time in the end.  He wasn't very happy with the weight of the boxes!

Full of New Catalogues and a few New Goodies to play with from the Preorder.

The Hostess sets in the New Catalogue are Delish!  This one is called Bloom with Hope, its huge, its two full cases of images and sentiments.

Talking of Delish!  Blackberry Bliss one of the New In colours-----Yum! Yum!
 Definitely a New favourite colour. Especially the ribbon.

I coloured in the images with Blendabilities, they were so nice to colour with.
I only use Stampin' UP! Products, so I've never used other alcohol ink based markers.  They come in a trio of colours of the same shade.  I used Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  You can colour the rhinestones and pearls with them as well. 

New Hostess Clubs starting First July.  Great way of getting FREE Hostess Spends.  Spend £25 every month for 6 months and choose  at least £25 of FREE Products when you are hostess. 
Email me for more details.
Everyone joining a New Club will get a catalogue and linen bag FREE.

 My catalogues are in the post today.
You can order yours over on the left hand side.

There's more bargains on the Weekly Deals, so pop over to my online shop.

Thank for looking,

New Catalogues Arriving Today....

Where Oh! Where is Mr Brown my UPS Man?

Very excited today as my Preorder Goodies from Stampin' UP! should be arriving sometime today.  

A stack of New Catalogues were also ordered, so if you want one you can either email me or click on the order button on the left hand side.  All New catalogues from me will have a FREE Stampin' up Linen Bag included.

Anyway while I am waiting (apart from ironing that is!) I thought I would show you another project using the So Very Grateful stamp set. 

I used the In colours Coastal Cobana, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.

I stamped in Naturals white cardstock.  It colours lovely with the markers pens.
These are our tag along boxes, which I covered the sides and added some gold bakers twine, then the oval framelit with the flower spray cut out on top.

Finished off with lots of pearls.

Don't forget if you want a copy of the New catalogue which goes LIVE 1st July, 
Order it with my paypal button or drop me an email.

Project Life & The Garlic Farm

Hello Everyone,

We had a lovely day out over at the Isle of Wight on Saturday.  It was the Old Gaffers Festival in Yarmouth, so we went there and also managed to fit in a fantastic breakfast at the Garlic Farm, while stocking up on their gorgeous products.  I was lucky enough to take these photo's of the elephant garlic flowers.  Look at the wonderful Bee's.  Great for a Project Life page!

A small selection of Project Life will be available to customers from 10th June. Full range from the 1st July.

These flowers are huge and about 1/2 metre tall.  We have four elephant garlic growing at our allotment, but  the flowers haven't opened up yet.  Last year we only let one turn into a flower and we had a Bee that lived in the middle of the flower.

Don't forget all the wheels are going from the New Catalogue.  There will be lots of lovely borders still but no more wheels.
