Papertake Challenge

Morning all,
Here is a card that I made for my friends birthday who is having a very hard time with life at the moment. I wanted to make her something thoughtful and pretty, I hope this fits the bill! I have entered this in to this week's Papertake Weekly Sketch Challenge.

I love these colours together, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive!

Arty farty angle!

My Shoe Box Project

Hi guys,

Well I promised to be back to show you all of the fabulous shoe box cards that we made, so thought I would start with showing you what card I made....

Arty farty angle....

The pictures don't really do this card any justice, it is really glittery!!

I have used the gorgeous 'Wondrous Gift' set which is still available in our new catty woohoo! I love this set and it is a bargain for £19.95 for a set of 6 stamps, the tree is really gorgeous and big and looks good just stamped in a colour or for a bit more pazzazz add a bit of glitter!

The papers I have used were 'Ski Slope' which were in the mini catalogue. Unfortunately they are not available anymore but we have an even better christmas paper set in the new catty called 'Merry Moments' which is only £7.75 for 12 double sided sheets!!

If you would like to order any stampin up products please contact me!

Remember free new catalogue for anyone who places an order with me before Friday!

Jems Weekend Away!!!

Well I have been away on a fabulous weekend with all my fellow Jems!!

We went to a place called 'Little Rissington' and stayed in the most beautiful house. We did not set foot outside the house from Friday to Sunday!!

I have stolen this fab piccie from the lovely Marlene (hope you don't mind hun)

From left to right are:

Nikki and I arrived on Friday night after having a nightmare journey on the M25! I bought some cupcakes for all of my lovely ladies to enjoy but unfortunately they took a little bit of a battering on the journey! lol

That didn't seem to stop people enjoying them!

On Saturday we did a Shoebox Swap which is where we all made a sample card, then 10 kits to make that card. We put all of the equipment with kits in a box and passed it around the table to take turns making each project. I will upload all of the wonderful projects over the next few days.

It was my wonderful (Stampin Up 'mum') Julie that organised this weekend and I just wanted to say another big thank you as I enjoyed it so much! When we arrived the gorgeous Jules and Sarah-Jane had left us beautiful gifts on our pillows!

Julies gift

Sarah-Janes gift - Sarah did have her goodies packed up in a gorgeous gift bag which I meant to take a piccie of but couldn't wait to open!!

That's all for now! I will be back later in the week with all of the projects we did! I am now going to drool over the new catty and put my order together.

If you would like to order anything from Stampin Up let me know soon as anyone who places an order with me this week will get a new cattie absolutely free!!!

Shoe Box Swap

Well yesterday I attended a 'Show Box Swap' this is where a number of people meet up and all bring a project with them. They make packs as if holding a class for the amount of people attending and put everything needed to make the project in a box. You then take it in turns to move around to each project and make it!

The wonderful Shaz held this Shoe Box Swap and I had a brilliant time. It was a lovely day and so we crafted out in the garden all day! We had a yummy lunch with lots of goodies!! yum yum!

Here is a piccie of all of us lovely ladies crafting apart from the gorgeous Steph who is taking the piccie :o(

Here is the project I made for the swap. It was very boring compared to the rest of the fantastic projects there were but at least it was simple and people could refresh their batteries doing it!!lol

I will be back throughout the week to show you what else I got to make!

This is a card I have made for one of my good friends as it is her birthday today!

I have used the Cheers to You stamp set which is such a versatile set I absolutely love it. My friend loves her cocktails so I hope she loves this card. All in all this card took me about 5 mins to make. I have stamped the background in the three main colours of Rose Red, Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal!

Tri-Fold Tree Card

Hello folks,

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and enjoying the lovely weather.

There is a wonderful lady called Angie Kennedy who is in the US. Angie is a very successful Stampin' Up Demonstrator and I get a lot of my inspiration from her projects. This is one I thought I would try today....

This is the inside of the card (sorry for the wonky picture!)

And I thought I would copy my SU 'mummy' Jules on her jaunty angle pictures!! It works, I love it!!

I really enjoyed making this card and will be trying more in the future.

See you all soon xxx
