Another Strength and Hope Card

This card didn't actually make it to the charity event as I decided to keep it for my husband Frank as its our aniversary today.............can't beleive that its 22 years!!

The colours used are Real Read, Basic Black and Whisper White. I've also raised the butterfly on with Dimensionals and emblished it with some "Bling".

Be sure to pop back tomorrow as a group of us Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have arranged a blog hop using the Colour Coach.

Franks Birthday Card

Today I've taken a break from sharing with you the Strength and Hope cards from saturday and wanted to show you the card that I made for Franks birthday on Sunday.. yes I did go home and make it on Saturday evening ladies and even surprised myself at how quick I did it as well.

Here I've used the Sense of Time stamp set, its one that I always seem to forget that I have, along with the Oval All set. The Sense of Time has been stamped onto Natural Ivory paper in Soft Suede and edged to make it look aged. I then matted this on to Baja Breeze Card stock with some Designer Paper. I then Stamped a clock image on to a piece of Baja Breeze punched out a 1" circle and then added some Crystal Effects to give it some depth. 

Frank was really chuffed with it !!

These cards use Whisper White, Crumb Cake and one of the new In Colours Blushing Bride. The butterflies have been emblished with perfect pearls and you can also see that we used the Eyelet border and Scallop Edged border Punch.

To order any of the items used to make this card then please drop me an email.

Strength & Hope card from charity event........

This card was made with 2 colours that I haven't used for a very long time......Elegant Eggplant and Pale Plum along with my new found favourite Pink Pirouette. 

The strip of Designer paper is from the Lap of Luxury pack and of course I just had to use another new favourite stamp set " Four Frames" and the matching punch. The sentiment is from the Love you Much Set.

Be sure to pop back for another card later ....

Who would beleive it ????

Yesterday was the Charity Card Making Event that I organised in aid of Breast Cancer Research and Harris HospicCare. The Afternoon began with the ladies arriving at 1pm and receiving their bag of goodies....

Here is a picture of one of the workstations that was set up for them in total there where 6 different cards for them to make most of them they made twice once for them and the other for our chosen charities. As Breast Cancer Research do not have shops we decided to donate their cards to the Cancer Research Shop in Orpington and will take the other half along to the Harris Hospice Centre.

We then got really busy for the rest of the afternoon as you can see from the pictures here.......

I have to give a big thankyou to Vanessa (my downline) who sat with Gemma, our youngest attendee at 10yrs and gave her excellent 1 to 1 care...... Thanks Vanessa.

My Girl's insisted that I had my photo taken ( usually I duck out of them) just before we drew the raffle.......

We were very lucky as 3 local companies donated prizes Nando's in Orpingtion, The Croft Tea Rooms and Bromley My time.

The day was a big success as we raised a total of £125.00 (to be split between the 2 Charities) and a total of 65 cards!!!!!!!!

Well done ladies!!

Please be sure to pop by through out the week to view the cards that we made using Stampin' Up!s Strength and Hope Stamp Set.

The full project...........

Sorry I did think that I would manage to post some other projects but life is hectic at the moment as Amy is home from Uni and I'm getting ready for my Charity Event this Saturday.

But here is the Mini Accordian Book that my ladies completed at their class tonight, it uses Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Espresso and Whisper White card stock, ink and seam binding ribbons.

The stamp sets used are Vintage Vogue and Punch Bunch (a level 1* hostess set) along with the vintage roller, which is versa marked to give a watermark effect on the Baja Breeze base and embossed with white embossing powder on the white front panel. Sorry the camera can't show this very well but the effect is beautiful.

The Filgree Brads are an elegant touch, I used the F from the broadsheet alphabet set as it could stand for family or friend.

also I just love the way that the Punch Bunch set co-ordinates with the matching punches...... it makes life so easy. Both the hearts and birds are all embossed using the Craft white ink and white embossing powder.

 If your interested in hosting a party/workshop or placing an order to earn this level 1 stamp set then contact me at

Scrapping........and Sewing!

I love the effect that sewing gives to not only to cards but scrapbooking as well. Using some templates that I had in my stash, I came up with this layout using the vintage papers  which can be found in the mini catalogue and co ordinating card stock Always artichoke and Rose Red.

My ladies found it quite relaxing at their monthly scrapbook class..... next month we are making a mini album for more information on classes please contact me at

Book Marks.....

I just love getting my head stuck in a good book but hate when I have to put it down and lose my page, so I thought I would make myself a bookmark using my beloved Owl Punch......... but I didn't stop at one I ended up making them for the ladies in my Stampers 10  club this month.

Its a great way to use up all the little scraps of paper........Think I better make Amy one as well seeing as she lost the last one I made her.......
