Special gifts for a special Stampin' Up! team

I have a lovely team of ladies in my downline. I like to reward them whenever I can and Easter is an ideal excuse for chocolate... but you can't 'just' give chocolate, I had to make some beautiful packaging!

Tonight is the last chance to book for the April class and 6pm is the deadline if you would like to add anything to my order and save some postage if you collect from me. xxx

Can't beat a bit of Cadbury's Chocolate! Can you guess what's in the bags?

Tomorrow I'll share the gifts I made for my downline!

April Stampin' Up! classes

So - this is it - your last chance to book for the April classes! I have spaces on the 11th or 13th April - though only a couple so don't miss out - if there are a group of you I will do a class exclusively for you. (Minimum 3 people.)

As well as the card I showed you the other day we'll be making a couple of masculine cards. These are always something so difficult to find.

The first uses The Open Sea.

Along with that fabulous embossing technique!

The other card uses Guy Greetings. I love this set it is just so versatile!

If you want to come along you have until 6pm Wednesday to book, and also to order anything you might like from the catalogue that you want to collect from me.

Stampin' Up! Sunny Saturday - Birthday Blooms

It's a beautiful sunny day here and I'm excited to be going out later to a gig with my friend Lesley and a couple of others... preceded by an Italian meal! Nom Nom!

In the meantime I just had to share this stunning card, sometimes I get flashes of inspiration and I really loved this effect!

Isn't it beautiful? I used the Birthday Blooms set, my score tool, Blender Pens and Vellum. I've done a video tutorial for you to follow if you would like to have a go...

I just adore the subtle colours.

Here you can see the raised effect that embossing the Vellum creates - it's a really tactile card.

I cut the frames using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Stampin' Up! Mother's Day!

Well after a completely manic week I have been in bed poorly... I don't want to share my germs with my Mum so I won't be seeing her today.

I thought I would share the card I made her... she doesn't 'do' the internet - but don't show her coz she's not had the card yet!

I've used so many different elements here... I hope it isn't too busy?

I love the glimmer paper butterfly overlaid on the stamped one... and you can see I put my Sharpie to good use!

I was stamping on some pottery on Thursday - can't wait to show you that! In the mean time I'm off back to bed! Hope you're having a great weekend and spoiling your Mum!
