Butterfly Prints

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all well.  We've slightly thawed out from the -9 of this morning and frozen snow left on the ground from Friday night......brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Saying that,  it is beautifull outside now and the sun is shinning brightly with blue, blue skies.

Yesterday in class we made two lovely cards, one of which is on my non-SU projects page and the other of which is below.  I really love this butterfly set and the fact that you can choose to either put the antenna (feelers) on the butterflies or not as it is a two-step stamping set.  Some of my ladies in class yesterday had not used the stamp-a-ma-jig before but they soon got the hang of it and loved using it to make their gorgeous cards.  This was after they'd finished laughing at me for calling them antlers the whole way through class instead of antenna or feelers.  What can I say it's all in keeping with the Christmas spirit.

Stamp set used: Butterfly Prints
Punch Used: Butterfly Extra-Large
Accessory used: Stamp-a-ma-jig

Tree Trimmings

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all well on this chilly day.  Time to get out the winter woolies I feel.

Well, since we've had the bit of news that Stampin' Up! have withdrawn the Ornament Extra-Large punch from purchase until further notice, I set about thinking what people could do should they wish to create a 3 dimensional Christmas card or even "bauble" for their tree.  There are of course the lovely stamp set's: Contempo Christmas and Delightfull Decorations but alternate to that you could also use Tree Trimmings which is a gorgeous little set with many uses.

Stamp set's used: Tree Trimmings and Curly Cute
Wheel Used: Soft Holly
Shimmer Paint used

Garden Whimsy

Good Evening all

We had a lovely class this morning, everyone enjoyed themselves and went away with two projects to be proud of.  We made a card and a gift card holder using garden whimsy.  These two projects could either be used together or given as seperate cards.

I think that most of my class members had two people in mind for their projects which is absolutely brilliant and even better was the fact that each person's card was slightly different.  I'm always pleased when they have the confidence to use the same stamp set but do things a little differently to what I'm suggesting, it is after all their card that they have to be proud to give away.

It was a bit of a dull day here today, so apologies for the darkness of the pictures.

Gift box and card

Good Afternoon All

This week in class we made an Easel card and pizza style box, gift set.  It all turned out very well and everyone really enjoyed themselves creating, chatting and eating a gluten free cake.  Yumm, yumm this was really delicious and since one of my class atendee's is coeliac she very kindly made us a cake, it's always such a shame when everyone else is having cake etc and Jill cant join in so for a change - yayy, she could!

Take a look at what we created with some lovely papers from my stash and a gorgeous stamp.

Stamp sets used: Dasher, Curly Cute

Serene Snowflakes (gift box and card)

Good Afternoon All

Well, I've had a busy few days, starting last Wednesday evening when I had a lovely workshop with a great group of crafting ladies.  Thursday I went to the NEC for the Craft Fair and then went away for a quiet few days to Anglesey, I've not been before and it's lovely there especially when the sun shines - which it did every morning we were there!  Horay!

I thought that I'd show you the projects that we made last week in our workshop, we used a lovely Christmas set with some gorgeous paper, ink and ribbon.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

Stamp set used: Serene Snowflakes
Accessories used: Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool

Good Morning All

I thought that I'd share some wonderfull product news with you all today.  If you order a Christmas bundle, you can get a FREE spool of ribbon.  How exciting and it does help that these ribbons look really scrummy.  Follow the link below to see what I'm taking about.
