Stampin' Up! Sunburst Die

It's that time of the month again - time to book your class for March. The days are getting longer and we've had some beautiful sunshine, today we walked past the Prime Ministers Country House - Chequers. I would love to see inside! I wonder if he reads my blog!?!? I somehow doubt it.

I'm going to offer a customer reward class in the Autumn for any customer who has attended at least 6 classes between March and September will get a FREE crafty session. How fabulous is that?

In March we'll be making these 3 beauties! You have until 6pm on Monday to book.

I used the balloon from the Party Punch Pack, It's My Party DSP, Sunburst Thinlits Die and Sunburst Sayings stamps and the Wink of Stella glitter pen - with a few other bits from the annual catalogue.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Stampin' Up! Mega Class!

I keep repeating the mantra... "I'm not nervous, I'm not nervous, I'm not nervous."

But I really am! Tomorrow I have my biggest class yet in the studio. Ten Rangers from 14-25 years old.

I've designed some lovely cards with a couple of little techniques.

I'm afraid I've only got some photo's from my phone of the cards on my white board to show you. I just hope they all like them!

Here's the room all set up ready! I was worried it would seem cramped but I'm amazed how much space there is once all the tables are out, not round the sides of the room.

Tomorrow I'll share the cards we're making in the March class if you fancy coming along!

My niece came and stayed on Saturday night and my friend Lesley and I took her on a nice long walk with the dogs... thought I would share our cheeky selfie! LOL - It's going in this years Project Life album... Once I get last years finished!

Love... From Stampin' Up!

Hiya - I have so much to tell you but I'm sure you'll get bored so in summary...

  • I've been swimming for the 1st time in 16 years
  • I'm going to start running... for the 1st time in 16 years
  • I had 3 classes last week - so sorry for not posting
  • I spent the whole of yesterday evening crafting... until 1am this morning.
So you can see I've been kinda busy! I am ordering tomorrow as I don't want to miss out on the Saleabration items that were limited!

Last night was great - one of my downline and I were chatting, laughing and crafting until the early hours and I'm having a craft afternoon in my studio tomorrow from 3:30-6:30 if you want to come over... just call me!

I'll just share the last of my Valentine creations before I work on some other uses for my Bloomin' Heart thinlits and Bloomin' Love stamps... I've seen loads of things I'd like to case! 

 The first card was made using Versamark and the Rock & Roll technique - embossed with the Irridescent Ice embossing powder.

This one uses the Rock & Roll technique too as well as the fabulous corner punch!

This is my last Valentine idea for this year... in case you are still stuck! I used the Confetti Heart punch and a Circle punch for the spotlight effect on the heart.

Have a great day tomorrow with the ones you love! xxx

Stampin' Up! Project Life - Mini Journal

One of my downline came to craft with me at the weekend and wanted to make something she had seen on Becky Higgins' blog... it was designed by Constanze Wirtz - I fell in love and had to give it a try too!

Long story short - I decided to make a video tutorial - it's slightly longer than usual but does have measurements in Metric and Imperial. I also include instructions for the gift box! This was the original based on Constanze's one.

And this is the other one I made for the tutorial!


How fabulous it that? I had amazing fun making it and am going to do a class if anyone is interested. It takes a while to make so it will be a Saturday or Sunday afternoon - Just message me if you are interested!

Here is the video - I hope you enjoy it!

Stampin' Up! Sky is the Limit - Part 2

I hope you enjoyed yesterday's simple card - One for anyone, I'm sure you'll agree!

The working week has begun and today is the last day to book for a class this month (Still can't believe it's February!) and tomorrow is the last day to order and save on delivery if you collect from me!

So here is the second card.

The dark lines are made by sponging with a mask and Versamark - then embossing with clear embossing powder. I used the Tree Builder punch for the clouds and the Decorative Label punch for the sentiment.

Come back tomorrow for my "Piece De Resistance" - a special card for my nephew's birthday!
