Painted Petals Designer Series Paper

When I first saw this pack  of papers I  was in awe, it was the first thin that went in my shopping basket. When I received it and opened it  I kept stroking the papers, like you do but  eventually  I gave in and started to play with it.

The sheet below is my favourite  and as you can see I really didn't  want to cut it I  tore it instead!!!  Well just a little...

Underneath I've  place another piece of dsp and stamped the sentiment  "sweet moments" from the project life stamp set  Remember This, before embellishing it with butterflies from the retiring embosslit - beautiful  wings.

Below are 6 cards that I  made for my class using the same sheet of paper.

I've used a variety  of punches, framelits and stamp sets to finish them off. I hope you  like them as much as the ladies  who  attended  my class.

Happy Stampin'

Masculine Monday's

A quick post today sharing with you a card that I  made using the Amazing  Birthday  stamp set, Confetti  star  punch and Lucky Stars embossing  folder.

Right must dash as I'm  about to board the plane to see my god daughter and her family in Ireland.

Not to worry I  have scheduled  some posts for whilst I'm  away.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

As I mentioned a few weeks ago I said  I was going to lift one of my layouts and here it is......using this months kit which used the Painted Petals DSP and coordinating  stamp set and I knew exactly which photograph I wanted to use (one from my  trip to America back in January) with  one of the sentiments from this stamp set. 

Michelle and I  met up with some lovely ladies - Pam and Debbie were a scream so I had to add them to my album  too !!

Be sure to pop back during the week as I'll be sharing some cards from my painted petals card class and of course next Sunday another  layout using these papers.

If you would like to place an order, please contact me by phone on 07914 360625, by email at or you can place an order via my Online Shop 24/7 here

Inspire, create and share

For those of you who  follow  my blog  you'll  know that I  host a monthly card swap for  Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This months theme  was to show  the annual catalogue  some love and use stamp sets from there.

I used the Mosaic  Madness  collection- stampset, punch and embossing sadly they are all retiring.

And here are the cards that I  received  in return.

Think I  will have to case a couple for my upcoming classes.

Have a great Saturday, I'll be busy getting ready for the Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show in Maidstone, please pop along and say Hi if your there.

Birthday Girl

Today is Amy's birthday, so I can safely share with you the card I made for her a few weeks ago - yeah prepared or what!!

It show cases the "In This Together" stamp set which I coloured in using blendablities  and the sentiment "keep calm" is borrowed from a friends stash. I've given the bags some dimension by adding Crystal Effects.

I loved the message she texted me to day saying thank you for the card and pressie which was " I should thank you for having me other wise, I wouldn't have a birthday".........

Good Luck.........

For this week's Masculine Monday's post I'm sharing with you a card that I was as to make for someone who worked with Amy and was leaving for ventures new.

Masculine Monday's

Just a quick post today as I've had a really hectic weekend and didn't want to disappoint you by missing a today's Masculine Monday's Post.

Although this card uses a retired set Dinosaur Roar both the embossing folders and card stock are all in the current catalogue.

Speaking about retired stamp sets I just want to bring to your attention that the current annual catalogue ends on the 2nd June and NOT the 30th as printed on the back cover.........

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Here is the last page from last months club kit, which uses most of the elements from the Artisan Embellishments Kit as well.

I'm also cheating a little bit as although its on a whisper white 12 x 12 card base this is also one of Stampin' Up!s Varitey Page Protectors for the Project Life range of cards. 

Which is my challenge for a group of fellow demonstrators to complete either using Project Life Cards or DSP like I have. Our Pinterest Board can be found here. Why don't you have a go at one of our challenges email me and I can add it to the board for others to see.

You may notice that I have a couple of entries missing from the board and 
the reason for that is I've used them to design some pages for May's Club kit which uses the Confetti Celebration DSP

We'll make at least three pages for your Scrapbook Album using these papers.

Each kit contains enough materials to make at least 4 pages.

This class is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced Scrapbookers.

Please email for more details or  you can opt to have the kit sent out by mail.

Inspire Create and Share

Today I'll be rather busy repeating last months Scrapbook Pages to a lovely group of ladies in Abington (Cambridge) and then tomorrow I'm off to meet up with a group of fellow demonstrators in Peterborough - yes a hectic weekend but I know it will be fun!!

So as you've seen my scrapbook pages already (well the last one is scheduled for tomorrow) I though I would share with you some swaps I've made Sunday. The theme set was "favourite stamp set" and here's mine using Gorgeous Grunge along with Petite Pairs and Petite Petals.

I've used the 2013-2015 In Colors - Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush.

I'll be sad to see a couple of these colors retire at the beginning of June, but am excited to see what will be coming .....

Have a great weekend what ever you get up to

Happy Stampin'

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Sorry this post is a little later than usual but I've been busy helping my uncle with his gardening and in return he cooked us a lovely liver and bacon casserole (one of mine and Frank's favourite dishes)  after we spent a leisurely hour in the hot tub......bliss.

Here is another layout from last months kit. I've stamped and heat embossed the swallowtail butterfly in early espresso, before layering a rose red butterfly from the new thinlits collection over it.

I've also used the new hand held stapler to fasten done the ribbon at one end.

Thanks for passing by my blog today, I hope your enjoying this lovely bank holiday weekend.

Happy Scrapin'

very touched.....

Today I'm going to share with you a card that arrived in today's post, from a dear friend and fellow demonstrator Nikki.

I must admit it bought tears to my eyes that some would go to that effort and  send me a card as I start my new job, I'm so touched.

Thank you Nikki Xx

Now that I've dried my eyes I'm going to get craftin' as I've got some upcoming classes and Craft show to get prepared for, oh and to get some blog posts ready for the upcoming week.

Happy Craftin'
