Happy Birthday Butterflies

Hi Guys

Todays card is for a friend of mine and so I wanted to make it a little bit special.  She is definitely an outdoorsy person, dog walking and horse riding etc  so I've opted for a little bit of the outdoors on her card in the shape of butterflies.

The colour combination here is Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder, both In Colours.  I've chosen a step card to showcase the butterflies and the First Edition stunning Designer Series Paper.  Love it!

Hope you like it

Post it holders

Hi Guys

I've been making lots of little gifts to give as extras at Christmas and whilst not technically Christmassy here is one that I've done quite a few of.

This is a basic post it note holder.  I love the simplicity of this design.  I've used the beautiful new hostess set Simply Soft.  The colour combination here is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise & Old Olive.  One of the notebooks has the main colour stamped off and one doesn't, makes quite a difference.  I've sponged all the edges to get a nice soft effect.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Hope you like them.

See ya

Christmas Easel Calendars

Hi Guys

I did another Christmas Fair on Saturday which was great, they really do get you feeling Christmassy.  All of my snowmen chocolates went as did my santa place settings which is great!  Need to make some more of them for my Christmas table ;o)

I did a couple of Easel Calendars which I really like. These are very simple to make but very effective and a lovely gift for someone.

I have used the now retired Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper on both of them.  The eyelet border punch is gorgeous on things like this and really finishes them off!

This one used mostly all of the same materials with a different coloured ribbon!

Hope you like them

Take care

Craft Fair things

Hi Guys

Have been putting a lot of bits together for a couple of craft fairs and thought I would show you.  The first is a little bird house ornament made using the milk carton die and tab top and bird punch.  This is very easy to do and a lovely little gift especially over the Christmas Season.

Snowman Soup is basically a packet of hot chocolate, some mini marshmallows and a stirring stick.

Snowman chocolate bar!  This is a chocolate bar covered in Whisper White paper and decorated to look like a snowman.  This was cased from Dawns Stampin Thoughts, thanks Dawn!

Jumbo paperclips for girls.  These can be bookmarks or just decoration for a little girls room.

I also made these goodie bags, one for boys and one for girls!

This cute little man is topping some chocolates and the colours tie in nicely I think.  These chocolates were from Tesco and you got quite a good sized box for around £4.00

Jumbo paperclips for boys!

Stampin up convention 2011

Hey Guys

Have a few pics of the swaps I did for Paris convention.  Had a fantastic time and loved being with so many like minded people!  Also managed to bump into some demos who live quite close to me which was fantastic.

I did a selection of swaps for convention.  The first 3 use images from Easy Events, a really versatile stamp set.  Each one has used blender pens and ink pads to colour and the Galaxy Glitter to add the glitter embellishments.  Love how these turned out.

This swap is using the new Designer Series Paper Beau Chateau and the new Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes.

Will hopefully post some convention swap pictures tomorrow.

See ya

New Youtube videos

Hi Guys

Firstly sorry I have been a little remiss on updating my blog recently although there is a good excuse.  I have been uploading video tutorials to youtube so in a way still blogging, as long as you know where to look.

Have been trying to give you the links in this blog but doesn't seem to be working :( but bear with me.  Hope you get a chance to view the tutorials and any feedback is always welcome.

See you soon
