Baby Blossom Class

Hi everyone,
I must apologise for not posting this week - its been a whirlwind of a week. Here are the card and gift bag that we made at class. I know there were a couple who couldn't make it, so hopefully you can still make these using your pack.

Stamp Set - Rose is a Rose (retired), Baby Blossom
Ink/Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi
Accessories - Big Shot, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Scallop Edge Punch, Round Tab Extra large Punch, Handheld Punch and Certainly Celery Seam Binding

Although the Baby Blossom Set is a little fiddly, the 2 step stamping technique gives a wonderful effect. If you would like to order the Baby Blossom Stamp Set, it's £21.95 in clear and these are the stamps you get - most of them can be used as 2 step stamping.

Just a reminder about my Christmas in July Class - 26th July, there are 3 places left for the evening class and 4 in the early afternoon class.
Until next time, 
Thanks for visiting.

A gorgeous handbag gift

Hello all and thank you for having a look at the Color Coach Blog Hop,especially if you left a comment - they mean so much to me and i love reading them, sometimes even twice!

Here I am going to show you a very pretty handbag and cards set I made for my mum-in-law as part of her birthday. I started it with my upline Caroline, and then finished it off at home. The tutorial came from a very creative lady - Michelle Last.

I loved making this and was so proud afterwards, it does look gorgeous, thanks to the beautiful DSP Springtime Vintage. I may be offering this as a class, so please do drop us a line if you are interested.
Until next time, thank you for visiting,
