What weather time for Crafting and Paper Share

Hi,

How are you all doing?  So much for a heatwave for Bank Holiday weekend and this week so far! lol All we’ve had is overcast, rain and thunder!  Been very muggy at night too!

So imagine my joy when it gave me just the excuse I needed to stop de-cluttering my house ready for moving and actually come into my tiny craft area that I’ve managed to keep clear and make some beautiful cards with some gorgeous new products, as well as sort out some amazing Paper Shares, for you all to get your hands on!

Paper shares I hear you cry! lol What’s that?  lol reminds me of my little granddaughter, she says ‘what’s that nana?’ when she sees something new, lol I can hear her now!

Anyway, sorry getting distracted, lol  If you go to my Product Share page you can find out what this involves, then go to my Paper Share page to see the three paper shares I am offering NOW!

I am sure you will fall in love with all of the papers I am offering and will want to get your hands on them asap!  The deadline for ordering your share of the papers is 10 June 2018, so please do not delay, go check it out and place your order NOW!

Here are some gorgeous cards I made along with my friend Gill (we haven’t been able to craft together for ages) using some of the papers I am offering in my paper shares and some new products that are in our Brand New Catalogue (out 1 June 2018).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I hope you like my latest creations and the paper shares are something that you would like to have! Come back after 1 June 2018 when I will have  all the new products I have used in these cards linked to my Online shop for you to order.

Anyone that has read right down to the bottom of this blog, places a £25+ order with me(via my online shop) using June’s Hostess Code, between 1 – 6 June, will get a £5 voucher towards their next order as well as a lovely FREE gift and card just from me.

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Onstage is nearly here!

Hi,

First an update on my lovely hubby, Mike.  Some of you will have heard, my darling hubby, Mike, had a stroke on 12 March, which was both frightening and shocking!  Luckily it was a minor stroke, but it has affected his left side, in particular his arm, but also his speech.  Slowly over the last couple of weeks he has made great progress and is now able to speak properly most of the time.  It is going to be a slow process of rehabilitation, but all the Consultants are confident that he will make a full recovery.

Hence, I have had to make a decision about OnStage and that is that I will not be able to attend this weekend.  OnStage is such a fantastic part of Stampin’Up! and being a Demonstrator it is for most of us, the highlight of the Year!  We get the chance to meet fellow Demonstrators from all over Europe and have the chance to congratulate all those who have achieved milestones within Stampin’Up!

I am pleased to say that 4 of my Direct Downliners and 3 of my second Level Downliners will be going to OnStage and I know they will have a fantastic time!

I had made a card for each of them to give out at OnStage, but as I am unable to go, I gave them it along with a gift from me early.  Here are the cards:

I think they are amazing and it will be a lovely momento of the time they spent at OnStage.  Below are the products I used to make the cards.  I am sure you can think of lots of ways to use the Apron Die, even to make little boxes!  The Die set also comes with BBQ tools, so you could make a lovely male birthday card with that!

Remember to use the Hostess Code S4SGSTEQ for April on your orders and if it’s £20+ you will get a FREE gift just from me as a thank you for placing an order with me.   To see how many of you actually read this post all the way to the bottom,  lol, places an order with me for £30+ AND leaves the Word ‘INSPIRE’ in a comment after this post, will get an extra FREE gift this month.  Don’t miss out!

Thanks

Hi!

You may be wondering where I’ve been recently? Well first of all I was poorly with the Flu, yep actual flu lol which developed to a chest infection. Then I went on a well-earned Holiday with my amazing Hubby and some friends to Mexico, to celebrate both his 60th and one of the friends 60th. Happen that whilst we were away it was also my birthday (not 60 though! hehe).  Anyways, thought I’d drop by today to remind you I have my Coffee n Card Session at No.9 Cafe, Bishops Cleeve this Thursday, 26 May 15:00-16:00.

Mother’s Day Card/Gift

Hi,

It’s been a while since I last posted, sorry, but have been soooo busy, not only with classes etc, but have just become a Nanna, so of course that takes priority!

botanicals mothers day card gift

Don’t you think the Card is so cute? Just the right size for you to give to your mum.  I am even providing the Chocolates inside the Gift packaging (shhhhh) lol.  So why not drop in and make a gorgeous Mother’s Day card/gift for your lovely mum to say thanks for all they have done and do!

Below are the list of supplies I have used for both of the projects. Just click on any of the products below and you will be taken to my Online shop where you can purchase the products and have them sent directly to your home.

Pinkies Blog Hop – Saleabration

blog hop logo

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using new Stampin’ Up!® products that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration. Simply use the buttons at the end of of each post to keep hopping!

There are so many gorgeous products in this years Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, that you will definitely want to place an order and get those FREEBIES! lol I love them all and again it was hard choosing just one to showcase for you. So I thought I would show you the gorgeous Vellum Stack, Botanical Gardens and the Botanicals For You stamp set.  These two coordinate beautifully and in fact you will find they coordinate well with other stamps and papers in our new spring/summer catalogue.

Here is the first project I have made for you.

botanical vellum treat bag

As you can see I have done a beautiful gift bag in Vellum. First of all I stamped the words ‘Just for You, from Botanicals For You stamp set, using Rose Red Ink. Then using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words exactly over the top, I heat embossed the words over the top with Clear Embossing Powder. Using clear embossing powder is a great way to get all the colours you wish for. Isn’t it gorgeous! To make it stand out even more I have sponged on the back of the vellum using Rose Red ink and a sponge dauber. I also coloured the larger flowers on the back with crushed curry marker pen.

Botanicals card

Next I made a lovely coordinating card to go with it.  Again I have used some of the same Vellum, and stuck it to some Rose Red Cardstock, using Glue dots in the corners.  To hide the glue dots, I have added large pearls over the top. I stamped flowers from the Botanicals For You stamp set onto Shimmery White CS, using Rose Red, Perfect plum and crushed curry Inks. I stuck the flowers on the vellum using glue dots and added tiny pearls to each of them. Finally I stamped ‘…on your special day’ from the same stamp set on shimmery white cs with crushed curry ink, flagged one end using paper snips and stuck it to the card with dimensionals.  Can you see I added the single crushed curry flower to the banner which I think makes it ‘special’!

Give these together to someone special and they will be bowled over!

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my projects and I hope you will pop back soon to see how I have coordinated these Sale-a-bration Freebies with other products from the spring/summer catalogue.

So now it’s time to hop on over to Camille’s blog to see what amazing projects she has made with some new products.
