Telford part 2 and a little sneaky peek....

Hello again, as promised I am back today to share with you the roomy gift I made for Laura. 


It is a carrier box filled with sweeties.  I made the box from a double layer of chipboard which I painted (four times!), I then sprayed it to seal the paint and then covered it in the new Neutrals Designer Series Paper.  I have used the new lace in Mint Macaron (omg I love this colour and this lace!).  The decoration is made using the new Watermelon Wonder card (this is growing on me rapidly!), more Mint Macaron and the embellishment is made using the lovely new charity set called Sprinkles of Life which has a co-ordinating tree punch which is gorgeous!
As I mentioned the new charity set is called Sprinkles of Life and has various 'toppings' for a cupcake, ice cream or tree and you can also get the lovely new co-ordinating Tree Builder Punch.  For each of the stamp sets sold, Stampin' Up! donate £2 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  The charity keeps families together and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home.  Such a great cause and it goes to the charities right here in the UK.  Go on, I know you are gonna love it and at just £19, it is a set I know you will get lots of use from.  Remember you can order from 3 June 2015.
Here are a couple more sneaky peeks of the Sprinkles of Life stamp set used together with the Gift Bag Maker.

I hope you like them and I look forward to sharing some more sneaky peeks with you in the next week or so.



Last weekend I attended the Stampin' Up! Regional Training event at Telford.  I have already shared with you my swaps from the day and today I have a few photos of some of the displays.  But first, you often hear me talk about the lovely Chris from Stampin' Up! HQ well, here he is, aka Chris the Catalogue!!!  I was trying to hide myself behind that catalogue!

Now on to the displays...see if you can spot the new bits coming in the new catalogue, not long to wait now!


Pop back on Sunday and I will share with you a few sneak peaks of some new goodies and the roomy gift I made for Laura.


Stampin' Up! Regional Training - Telford

Today I am in Telford at the Stampin' Up! Regional Training where I hope to get my hands on some new goodies from the Annual Catalogue which launches on 2 June.  It will no doubt be a fun packed day that I get to spend with approximately 330 other demos from all over the UK and some from further afield.  A big part of the event is swaps.  We all make lots of swaps to exchange with other demos to share ideas and inspiration.

So, without further ado, here are my 'swaps'.

There are 100 swaps in this pile!

And here is a close up.

I hope you like them and be sure to pop back next week when I shall share some pictures of our day.

As promised, I am back today to share a couple of other cards with you.  I must confess I was inspired by these two from Pinterest, the first one because I loved the colours and the second because of its subtleness.

A little bit of Flower Patch using Strawberry Slush (another colour I am very sad to see go) and Blushing Bride with a little Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.

I changed it around a little but was inspired by Pretty Paper Cards

And for this one I was inspired by Erna Logtenberg
I know Curly Cute is long retired but I still love it and it is one that will never leave my stash!
I hope you like them.


Once I get to see the new catalogue and see what stamp sets are staying, it always inspires me to get the old favourites out again and have a play.  I have a class today and I thought I would share with you the first card we made using the lovely Swallowtail stamp, it sure is a biggy but gorgeous all the same.

I chose to highlight it in the 2014-2016 In Colors (I am going to be so sad when these retire next year!) and  I used daubers to add colour to the stamp before giving it a quick 'huff' and stamping it on to Whisper White cardstock.


I shall be back tomorrow to share another card or two with you.


May's Monthly Class...

Well here we are again, another month has passed, well that isn't absolutely true, this month's class is one week early as I am off to Telford for the Stampin' Up! Regional Training next week so I had to bring things forward a bit. 

This time of year is filled with mixed feelings as we are about to see the launch of the new annual catalogue.  Sadness because some of my favourite stamp sets will be leaving us forever (although quite a few have made it into the new catalogue which I am extremely happy about) but on the other hand I am super excited because the new catalogue has some AMAZING stamp sets which I shall look forward to sharing with you over the coming months!  Watch this space!

So, this month I have used two stamps which are sadly leaving us but will remain firmly in my collection, Baby Bumblebee and So Very Happy.

Without further ado, here is what we made.

This box measures approximately 14cm long x 7cm deep and opens on a diagonal hinge, all held together by a cute belly band.

We then made three cards, the first again using the Baby Bumblebee stamp.

The second one used the So Very Happy stamp set.

Finally, the third one also used the So Very Happy stamp set.

I hope you like them and check back soon to see some sneak peeks from the new catty.
