Crafting Up A Storm

Wednesday, 27 April 2011


I meant to upload these pictures before but the Easter holidays and with the kids being off school and of course the glorious weather got in the way. 

This is my ladies from my April class - they were all beginners so it was good to see how well I'd written my instructions!  They throughly enjoyed it and said they wanted to come back again so that was lovely.

The venue was perfect and even though it was a very sunny day we were really cool inside.

I'm busy preparing for my next class which is Sat 14th May and this will have a male theme to it.  A Father's Day card with a decorated storage that could be used as a pressie and 2 other male cards.

I hope to see you there! :)

Another Birthday Card

 I've made a card for yet another birthday, they all seem to come at once, I've managed to have a play with some stuff from the new mini catalogue.  The base card is my trusty Old Olive card stock mixed with some Melon Mambo designer paper and Daffodil Delight card stock.  The frame and the tape measure and the tailors dummy come from the Sew Lovely stamp set and the buttons are from the Button, Button stamp set.  Both of which I love!  The flowers inside the frame are from the Punch Bunch Sale a Bration stamp set, I didn't ink the scallop circle surrounding the sentiment.  I've used Crumb Cake seam binding on the base.

This is my alternative Easter Bonnet for my little boy, it's using the A Good Egg stamp set and Nursery Suite papers.

Finally this is my completed class for Saturday, I've got the cakes already, hopefully I won't be too tempted before tomorrow! :)

Quick Birthday Card

I'm always so last minute with my cards, it's my friends birthday today and I needed to make her a card.  So whilst the little one was at playschool I set to work.

Straight away turning to my favourite stamp set - Baroque Motifs and I decided to try using different colours than I would pick normally.  I fancied trying Rich Razzleberry and I wasn't disappointed!  Love this colour :)

The base is an A6 tent style card in Rich Razzleberry, I have teamed this with a panel of Pretty in Pink with a small section of Rich Razzleberry across the middle.  I stamped one of the stamps from the Baroque Motifs set in Early Expresson onto Whisper White card stock and punched out with the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch.  This has been adhered with dimensionals.  The Happy Birthday is from the Occasional Greetings set and is also stamped in Early Expresso.  The card has been finished off with a rhinestone in the mddle of the motif and 3 in the top right hand corner.

I'm really please with it and I hope my friend will be too.

The new mini catalogue

The new mini catalogue is out!  And Stampin' Up! have teamed up with Sizzix to give you the Big Shot, I'm definitely going to be getting myself one of these.

The catalogue also includes some embossing and cutting dies that are exclusive to Stampin' Up!

Not only that there are some beautiful new stamp sets, papers and accessories that are well worth a look.  If you would like a copy email me at and I can pop one in the post to you.

I've already started my wish list :) x
