Build a Blossom

Hello all,

What a busy time I've had again, I definately need more hours in the   Today saw my monthly class and to say we had fun is an understatement.   This month we used the build a blossom stamp set and punch to match.  I decided to use a lot of the new products especially the new In Colours paper and ink. 

I found the box at the front on an Ameican Demo's site, Lisa, please check it out as she has some lovely projects and ideas.  Despite it being a last minute dot com class to prep (finsihed prepping at 12.40am this I really enjoyed doing it and was pleased with the finished products.  I'm sure the ladies enjoyed making them as much as I did.  I deliberately left sentiments off some of the cards so it didn't limit the ladies as to who they could send them too or for what occasion.

My next class is on Saturday 26 November and could be the last one for this year unless a class in December is requested.  We are making the box frames again (12x12 or 6x6) so if you want to join me and my ladies, and maybe make a special pressie for someone for christmas, please let me know by 10 November and I'll get more details to you.

Wedding card

Good morning everyone,

Its pretty dull here at the moment but then again it is quite early so plenty of time to brighten up. The other week hubby and I were at a friends wedding. Obviously I had to make the card and wanted something special that would not only be different to the other cards but a keepsake as well. I decided to do a bookatrix card using a well known template that isn't SU. However, all the products used to make the card were.

The colour theme for the wedding was lemon and white so I used so saffron and whisper white cardstock and ribbon to tie in with this.  The little flowers were made using the Boho Blossoms punch and the lid of the box emobssed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and big shot.

If you would like to purchase any of the items used to make this project (except the embossing board) please contact me on any of the methods listed a the top of my blog.  Also don't forget to check out my special offers page for some bargains :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Baby boom !!!

Hello ladies,

Its been a few days  but not as long as  Both home life and work is very hectic at the moment as I try and prepare for the Arnold Hill fair next weekend.  Why are there never enough hours in the day sometimes?

Anyway, recently I was asked to make a baby card for a little girl that then turned into3!!!!!.  So, as they were going to different people, and to save time, I decided to make the same card and here is the result :-

I used the stamp sets Bundle of Love and Curly Cute.  The colour combination is Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.  All the recipients were pleased with their cards.

If you would like to order any of the items mentioned, a catalogue, or just want some information on Stampin' UP! please contact me on 07891476636 or by e-mail,
