Thought for Thursday - on a Friday!

Hello Everyone

I love that in crafting - there are no rules, there is no wrong, straight is over-rated and every blot of ink is just an embellishment opportunity. Come to a Stampin' Up! class and break some rules with us!

And just to get into the spirit properly - I am doing my Thought for Thursday on a Friday! LOL

….it's almost the end of Sale A Bration 2016!

…so before I go, I just need to share one more little card made with Honeycomb Happiness. I have really enjoyed using this stamp set.

The balloons here are stamped twice - direct on the card and then on some coloured scraps and cut out. Then I daubed the edges with matching ink (Mint Macaroon and Blushing Bride), before popping them up on dimensionals. And of course I also used a Honeycomb Embellishment to finish the project.

Hope you like it.

Thought for Thursday

Hello Everyone

This is so true - even if it is a simple as a sore throat having cleared up - we really appreciate feeling better when it is gone.

For me whenever I feel a bit stressed - I think back to my days working at BT and constantly fearing losing my job or being redeployed - so happy every day that those days are behind me and I get to wake up and be a full time Stampin' Up! demonstrator every day. I am SO lucky.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hello Everyone

Do you know that everyone who orders from me gets a little thank you - a card that they can re-use (I just tuck a thank you note inside it).

If you order online, you need to un-tick the 'no contact' box - or I won't be able to see your address and send you your thank you.

These were a batch of 50 I made using the baby wipe technique.

Don't they looks sweet?

Winking at the Rose!

If you visited my blog on Tuesday, you saw my video featuring the new Wink of Stella glitter paint that Stampin' Up! are now offering.

Here I have used it on a two Rose Garden Thinlit cards. The photo's really don't do it justice - you will just have to pop round and see them in my craft room! (A long way to pop for some of you I know).  So I will assure you, the sparkle is really pretty.

Just watch the video and see how it transforms a pretty cards into a sparkly, pretty card! And no mess. :)

Yay Presents!

Just a quick post today. This card was made with the Party Wishes stamp set and punches that I showed last Friday.

I love the Yay Presents sentiment. It is just what younger (and some older) gift recipients are thinking! LOL



I also used some of the 12"x 12" designer paper stack called It's My Party. This paper is SO pretty with lots of vibrant birthday and non-birthday patterns - and you get 48 double sided sheets!

Thought for Thursday

Hello Everyone

This is an interesting Thought for Thursday. The power of imagination can be strong, so if there is something you wish for that you could take small steps towards - imagine what you could achieve if you took those steps all year.

I am imagining myself at my goal weight - it is probably how long it will take - 24lb down - about another 3 stone to go - but small steps every day will get me there.

So what are YOU starting today?

A Party Without Cake - is just a meeting!

I love the sentiment I used on this card! I have used the big Happy Birthday lots too…but that one made me smile! Both come from the Party Wishes stamp set which coordinates with matching Party Punch Pack punches (woo hoo) - so we can easily pop up those little cakes.

I love how the little balloons work too - I decorated the card below with both balloons and cupcake - and believe me I wouldn't have wanted to fussy cut all those out!

Punches are the best! And even better you can buy both the stamps and punches together as a bundle and save 15%. See them at my online store or let me know if you would like them.
