Happy day...when skies are grey!

Hello everyone,

What a miserable's been raining non stop and Lily and I had another pyjama day and I managed to get an hours crafting done while she napped this afternoon. Here is what I came up with...

I used a few things from the new Spring catalogue and some from SAB. I must say I love the Petal Parade Stamp Set, I wasn't sure at first but I've used it to create my own Designer Series Paper, I have also used the Free SAB Sweet Sorbet DSP for the 'flower' and the Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine. 
The Sentiment was a mixture of SAB 'See ya later' and Happy Days from the Main catalogue. 
Oh and I love the new Arrows Textured Embossing Folder and the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, it's great for all sorts! 

Below is a list of all the items used, you can clickon them and it will take you straight to my online shop, where you can order items 24/7 delivered straight to your door.

Have a look at the new Spring Catalogue and the SAB on the right hand side!
Until next time,

Only 2 days to go, but here is another sneak peak!

Hello everyone,
What have you been up to on this very wet afternoon? I haven't fitted in any crafting as I have been playing with Lily helping her practice her walking! :)

Here is a card I did last Sunday at some team training, it uses a lovely new Stamp Set and a new tag punch. You can also see the FREE Sal-a-bration paper in the background. This stamp set is great for the water colouring technique . I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry slush for the flowers. What do you think?

Pop back on the 28th of January (Tuesday) where I will give you all the details of Sal-a-bration and the new Spring Catalogue.

Until then, keep dry,

Hello everyone,

Thank you for popping by, today I'm sharing the scrapbook pages we made at last night's class. There are also some photos of the ladies enjoying the evening, so much so that we lost track of time and realised that we were running over - doesn't time fly when you're having fun, we thought!

Here are the two layouts, one had a Christmas theme and the other was more of a winter theme, with an added technique of the starburst technique (watch the youtube at the end of the post - it's fab!).

 The colours used here were Coastal Cabana and Soft Slate. The Starburst technique is created using the wonderful Winter Frost Designer Series Paper.
Do you like the bow?  Well would you believe it's created with an oval punch!! I'll show you how in the next few days.

 This Christmas page captures the traditional colours of Christmas - Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. The Mosaic Madness Punch creates the perfect baubles and the ever so reliable Lovely As a Tree comes out again to created the bottom of the Christmas tree.


Here is the 'lift the flap' for the photo! I need to journal this one still, this was last Christmas!

Photos of the ladies enjoying scrapbooking - if you would like to join us, there are still a few places available, so get in touch by text/phone 07821162950 or email me here . If you cannot physically join us but would like to make these layouts, I have a couple of kits available - get in touch!

See you soon,

Thank you card...

Hello dear reader,
Today I have learnt a bit of patchwork quilting and I was able to put it into a cushion. I will take a photo of it to show you tomorrow once it's light.

I have another card to share with you today full of NEW FREE products that you will very soon be able to get your hands on, so unfortunately I can't share the actual products like I usually do directly underneath!

I do hope you like this! :-) I'm off for a day of crafting tomorrow, so will be back in a few days with some more projects!

Some sneak peeks...

Hello everyone,
I hope you've had a good Wednesday, I took my daughter Lily to messy play today and she did get a little bit messy with the felt tip pens, but who doesn't love felt tips!!

Today I will be sharing with you a 'what I call' open card, that can be sent for any occasion as the sentiment is simply cheerful. I have used a number of new products and I wonder if you can spot them?!

I remembered to stamp the envelope, which I normally always intend to but forget! I have used 3 new sneek peek products that will be available from the 28th of January and the rest are listed below!

Table built using Stampin' Up! Product Table Builder from The Crafty Owl.

I am also in the process of setting up a Stampers 6, where you can still benefit from the hostess credits without hosting a party yourself! Pop back for more info or email me by clicking here

Until next time...
Enjoy your Wednesday evening!
