Happy World Cardmaking Day!

It was so awesome to spend a few hours in my craft room today getting a bit creative 🌎🧡

I purchased this designer series paper over 12 months ago and am only just now loving it. actually come to think of it most of the items used in these projects are now retired 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m back!!

First of all, I have no excuse! I haven’t posted here in so, so long. The good news is that over the past few years I have still been creating, still continued to be a Stampin Up! Demonstrator and have continued to run my monthly classes (with the exception of the time during COVID, of course).

I hope you have all stayed safe and healthy through the past few months. As we return to a sense of normal, I am looking forward to starting my classes again in the coming month. More details about this will be shared very soon.

In the meantime, for the next few months I thought I would share with you over the next few posts some of my creations through the time I was MIA.

The below was my first play with the embossing paste. How gloriously messy and fun is that stuff?! Using punches I had in my supplies I created the Mickey and Minnie heads. I love these cards because you can recreate them easily using whatever you have in your stash – sequins, ribbon, diamanté’s, washi tape etc.

I promise it won’t be as long between posts again. 😊

Poppin’ Box Card

Today’s card class was super fun. I used completely ALL retired products which I know for a demo is a no-no but the fun factor totally makes up for it, right?!

Cased from YouTube, what kid wouldn’t be surprised by this!

Happy Saturday! I hope you have some fun crafting plans for the weekend! 💜

Thank you cards

I recently saw this super gorgeous card created by Jo Stubbings.

As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to recreate this and even better, I already had all of the supplies to do so (woohoo!) just not in the same colour.

These are my versions of Jo’s gorgeous cards! I used Pool Party and Rich Razzlebury. I did also do a Daffodil Delight version but this isn’t yet finished because I don’t have any yellow ribbon… Oops!

I will be the first to admit that I am terrible at colouring but the Blendies do make it a whole lot easier!!

Once again, most of these products are retiring at the end of May. ☹️

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of my followers who are Mums. I hope you have had a beautiful day!

I didn’t get a pic of my human kids with me today but did manage to snap a selfie of me and my fur kids!

This was a set that I put together for my Mum as part of her Mother’s Day gift. I mixed retired Designer Series Paper Birthday Bouquet with current products as my Mum loves to spend time in her garden. I am loving the acetate boxes at the moment, they really finish off a set of cards.

Happy Mother’s Day! 💕

Mother’s Day Class

Well, here is the retiring paper again that I now love. As mentioned in my last post I wish I had have bought this earlier!

I created this set for yesterday’s class to be given to the Mum who has everything for Mothers Day or kept for yourself.

Matched with the Colourful Seasons stamp set and Stitched Shapes Framelits, these cards were super simple to create. All are exactly the same just with a different accent colour making them look completely different.

The paper is still available in my online store until 31 May 2018.

Currently stockpiling…

Aarrgh!!! With all of the excitement and anticipation that a new catalogue brings I think it’s time to stockpile some of my favourites from the current catalogue.

If you are anything like me that means you are now only just discovering certain products that, yep! You guessed it, have been available for almost 12 (or 24) months now!

I feel that my next few posts will probably spotlight some of these products! Ok, they will definitely all include at least one of the following… the colour Emerald Envy (😍) or Dapper Denim (😍), the Eclectic Designer Series Paper and the gorgeous ribbons.

Today it is said DSP and Emerald Envy mixed with silver and Night of Navy.

These products are still available until the end of May, unless I buy them all out before then!!

Happy Crafting!
