Circle Circus Box in a Bag Stamp Class.......

Busy Week! Lots been happening to do with the Launch of the New Catalogue. We had a lovely downline meeting last Thursday which was great fun.

This is my Stamp Class for Tomorrow, the Circle Circus Box in a Bag Stamp Class.

I decided to use Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive this time. The papers are the Cottage Wall papers which are in the Mini Catalogue, which is still available to order until 30th September.

The large box in a Bag can hold all 3 cards inside. Or fill it up with a lovely gift for Someone Special.

Also in the Class, I put the bag on a diet and made a Mini Box in a Bag, complete with 6 3x3 cards to go inside.

It really is so cute.
The stamp set is Circle Circus and the sentiments are from Occasional Greetings stamp set.

You can buy the instructions on the right if you wish to play along.

Right off to the Card Buffet Tonight.

Pick a Petal Stamp Class.....

Hi All,

We did this class yesterday. We had such fun. All the faces on the nose card looked great, all different. Lesley managed to ink the stamp in black instead of bashful blue and it looked like he had a black eye. Very Funny!!! I love Tuesday Mornings.
The instructions does include all the Pick a Petal cards.

I had another class last night for my Lychett Ladies. They wanted to make the My Sweet Pea Class. My Sweet Pea stamp set and the huge paper pack is in the Mini Catalogue which is still available until the 30th September or until stocks last. The other set is called Framed with Love which only available until the 30th September.

We are doing this Class tonight as well.

Craft Room Finished Photo's.....

Morning All,

I took these photo's yesterday before Class started. Can you see Sid? He follows me everywhere! Although not this morning he's sulking as his morning walk was WET! My hubbie's Scooter is getting WET as well! We are waiting for our Shed to arrive, This will be his new home - NOT my hubbie's - The Scooter! I just hope my measurements are correct and all the bits from the Garage will fit in their new home! OR I will be in Trouble:-)

All our Vegetables are over in our Garden now, so I have filled the tubs up with some flowers and Lavendar. My hubbie made a new step for us under the door.
As you open this door, This is the view.
On the right hand side I put up some shelves, to hold my 3D Projects.
At the other end of the room, This is Sid's Bed! Although he only sat in it once yesterday, too many lovely ladies feet and legs PLUS BAGS to lick!

This is the view from the other end, in front of all my shelves.

I put up a couple of shelves near my Library as well for 3D Projects.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my Craft Room/Garage!

A Flower for all Seasons Stamp Class Today.......

We're back to Stamping Today!

Finally my Craft Room is tidy and sorted. I expect as I use it, things will get moved etc, but on the whole it will stay the same.

We are making the A Flower for all Seasons Folder and Cards Today.

I made them all a little Welcome Back Pressie, using the same Stamp Set.

I added some Crystal Effects to the centre of the flowers and ladybird, it really lifts up the image.
I finally finished my New Banner for my Stampin' Up! Library. It's all tidy, at last.

Even Sid has a New Bed in there. I bet he doesn't use it Today! Too busy licking Ladies toes and legs!!!!!!

Pick a Petal Stamp Class.....

I thought I would upload this now as to boys will be back to school, hubbie is out all day, so I am looking forward to one day of peace tomorrow!!!! It will be a long day waiting for the catalogue to turn up though!!! At least there is an ironing pile to be done to keep me busy!

This is what we will be making for my Pick a Petal Stamp Class. As usual one version is in Rose Red and one is in Perfect Plum. Included in the instructions are a few other samples, as below.
I have really loved using the Black gingham ribbon its such a lovely and useful width. I have a feeling that a new ribbon in the New Catalogue will replace it though, but that would be telling right? Check out the Gingham ribbon on the Last Chance list - Get it before its all gone.

The sentiment on the cards are from Stem Sayings and Wonderful Words stamp sets.
Just a little bit of cutting out on this card.
Funny Face!
I love ladybirds, they are so good and beautiful. Although while cutting my front garden yesterday, I kept seeing loads in the grass! Hope I didn't get too many.
Anyway, its past Bedtime,

Monthly Thanks You Cards.....

Here it is! Our very own Pumpkin. We've never grown one before and we are so proud. We're not sure what to make with it yet, I really don't want to cut it up. I thought it went so well with my Thank You cards this month for my Customers.

The stamp set is Autumn Splendor. This is being carried over into the main catalogue. I am so excited, I think my copy of the New Stampin UP Catalogue is due out for delivery tomorrow. I will be at the window all day, well I can actually see from my Craft Room now, down the drive and over the gate for Mr Brown! We travelled on the same road UPS use to get to the UK, its amazing anything ever arrives. The lorries are just MAD! They pull out, when they feel like it and hardly ever indicates. When I was checking to see if my preorder from the New Catalogue (Goes LIVE 1st October!) had been shipped, I noticed it took them just 12hrs to get from Frankfurt to the UK - So Quick!
The base cardstock is Ruby Red (soon to be retiring), then Pumpkin Pie.

Check back later for my Pick a Petal Stamp Class.
