Stippled Blossom sneak peak card

As promised I'm back with a sneak peak from the new 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! annual Catalogue. 

I'm just loving this years New Incolours, when you get them all together and look at their names they remind me of icecreams. 

Today I am sharing with you one of those colours Strawberry Slush.

Here I have team it up with Pink Pirouette and used Stipple Blossoms 2 step stamp set with it. 

Can you spot another new product????  Just in case your wondering, its the embellishment that I have added to the ribbon bow. 

This is made using Stampin' Up!s NEW Simply Pressed Clay and one of the pair of Simply Pressed clay molds which is also available - Buttons & Blossoms  , which I have coloured with my re-inkers.

Well its time to dash as I have to catch up with all the housework before I can play with some more of my sneak peak products - that's just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator if you would like to find out more then click here or give me a call on 07914 360625 with no obligations.

Best of Flowers

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

I can't believe Sunday has come around again so quickly!!  Yesterday I spent the morning packing the kits for this weeks Scrapbook Club using the Afternoon Daydream Scrapbookin' Kit. 

For my layouts I have been using photographs from last year's Stampin' Up! convention. So whilst I had the photo's out I decided that I would do a couple of more layouts making use of the little bits that I had left over. 

As well as using the left over's up I used the outer cover from the program of events and also the inner pages to mat and layer photo's as well as cutting out titles for pages.

Stampin' Up! had a photo booth there it was great as you can see Charlie and I decided to make funny faces!!

I'm sooooooooooo excited as I'm registered for this years Stampin' Up! convention which is in Manchester!!! 

If you would like to be part of this amazing event then join my team without delay and you to could be sharing the experience with us this November. 

As it's Stampin' Up!s 25th Anniversary I'm sure is going to be even better than the last 4 that I have been too!!!

Well i must dash now as load's to, remember if you wish to order any Stampin' Up! products or would like to join Stampin' up then email me at

Just Believe Tri-Fold Shutter Card

Friday night I was frantically making a 50th Birthday card for Frank as usual he gave me plenty of notice as he needed it for Saturday.... and I was going out all day and wouldn't see him.  

I decided that I would make a Tri-Fold Shutter Card, I chose some DSP from the Floral District collection, along with the Memorable Moments and Just Believe stamp sets.

Using my Stampm-a-Jig, I postioned the word and numbers from the Memorable Moments stamp set were I wanted them on the piece of whisper white cards stock before mounting it on rose red card stock.

Then using my markers I coloured the image using rose red, baja breeze, wild wasabi remembering to give it a good huff before stamping  and repeated this again. I embellished it with some glitter butterflies.

And here is a full view of the card, Frank was really pleased with out and so was the young lady who received it.

Some of the items that I have used like the Just believe stamp set and  Floral District DSP are now only available to purchase until the end of the month or until stock lasts - to place an order for these or any other items please email

Best of ...........

As I promised on Saturday I am back to share with you a card that I have made using one of the stamps from this months "Best of Flowers" collection from Stampin' Up!

Here I have used one of the background techniques that I am teaching at my upcoming Saturday Special class (details can be found here) before stamping the image. 

I  decorated the inside of the card as the sentiment I chose to use is one of a pair from the One in a Million stamp set.

Now I am off to play with the another of the stamps in this collection and will share my creation with you later in the week.  

Should you wish to order the Best of Flowers stamp set (13.95) or any other Stampin' Up! products please call 07914 360625 or email

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Today I'm going to share with you two of pages that I made with May's Scrapbook Club's Kit, which consisted of half a packet of the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper* and coordinating card stock and accessories.

As one of the pieces of paper had a lovely image of the Eiffel Tower on it I decided that I wanted to make a feature of that as I had some photo's that I hadn't scrapped yet dating back to 2001 when I went to Paris with my good friend Philly.  

This layout actually has a total of 6 photographs on it, if you lift up this photo, it opens out to show you another three inside

Then if you , move the tab on the Eiffel Tower photo then this will reveal another photo and another tab revealing the 6th photo. On the inside I have stamped the Eiffel Tower image from the Artistic Etchings* stamp set.

On this second layout I have used stamps from the Postage Due and Morning Post Alphabet stamp sets and used some More Mustard scallop dots ribbon to embellish it.  

You can join our club in person each month or take part by post. Each month we have a kit of coordinating goodies ad use it to make at least two pages – one taught and one which you can do your own thing with or take from one of the other inspiration pages which will be shared. 

If you would like June's Kit then please email or call 07914 360625  by 9 pm this evening, as I need to place the order to ensure that the class is correctly catered for.

Hope you have a great Sunday......

Happy Craftin'


* both the Artistic Etchings Stamp set and Fan Fair DSP are on the retirement list (remember when its gone its gone!)
