Beautiful Season Card with Masking I know it’s not Christmas yet, but I just had to share this idea. I’ve made a few cards using this stamp set. I must admit to not being quite sure as to whether I liked the set. I need to challenge myself to take risks and move out of my comfort zone 🙂 So I purchased the set and I now love it. Whilst playing around with the set I came across this marvellous… Read more »

 Nip and Tuck Card I came across this fancy fold card on Claudia Rosa’s Pretty Pressings Blog where there is a free tutorial.

Please visit Claudia’s blog to see all her wonderful creations.This card is made with imperial measurements but I’m sure if you have the time you can tweak the measurements… Read more »

Well, what a week! I’ve finished the wedding invitations for DD’s wedding next month. I’ve made about 75 of everything and then realised I’d forgotten the bride’s parents (how funny would that be?). Anyway the wedding is why I have neglected my blog this week. So, without further a do, I’ll share with you the final pieces. I’ve erased details (not too well I might add) for privacy reasons. Now I must tell you, I couldn’t have done without my… Read more »

These new Stampin’ Up!® products are just wonderful to use. I’ve made 1 project with them already and have quite a few more in mind. I always tell my customers not to buy something that they either won’t use ot it will be a one off use. These Edgelits Dies and coordinating Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, will get a lot of use and fall into my category of ‘must haves’.  I‘ve already shared this project with you, however here it… Read more »

I shared this project as part of the ESAD Blog Hop on the weekend which celebrated the launch of the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. Now, I must say this is not my original idea. I don’t recall where I got it from, so if it’s your idea, please contact me so I can give you credit. The Scallop Envelope die is quite versatile and can be used for many different projects. This is just one of them. I… Read more »
