Bigshot Club - Scallop Square Cards & Boxes

Hello Everyone,

Gosh Where does the time go? It was Bigshot Club tonight. I used the Clear Scallop Square Die for this Class. We have already used this die in the Polar Party Stamp Class, where we reduced the die to make different sizes.

But tonight I used the die to make a couple of cards and gift boxes. I used the Everybunny stamp set for the cardstock version of the gift boxes.

I demonstrated the other boxes using the fabric for a different look. These are so strong and would make a lovely desk pen holder. The fabric is the Spice Cake fabric from the Mini Catalogue. The flowers are the Fun Flowers die.
The instructions include all the boxes.
Thanks for looking,

Marry Me Stamp Class.....

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous weather. So Lovely that I thought I would use Spring Colours for my Stamp Class tomorrow.

I have finished stroking the Beau Chateaux Papers so I went for two colour combinations, Soft Suede and the very soft Pink Pirouette with Very Vanilla, for Mary! Then Basic Grey, Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla. The papers have all these colours included in them.

The stamp set is Marry Me which is available until 30th April in the Mini Catalogue. It has three lovely sentiments and the gorgeous Wedding Couple silhouette. The class also includes the Special Wedding Card which is a Waterfall Album.
Just like my Christmas Waterfall Album that I made last year, but this class has a smaller version in centimetres which you can make from A4 cardstock.
There are 4 pages to add your photo's to.
Pull on the tab and the pages flip up to reveal the next one.
This is the Basic Grey and Bashful Blue Version.
Right Then, Must get some ironing done as the weather has made me wash everything that wasn't nailed down!!!

Scrapbooking.....Downline Meeting.

Morning Ladies,

It's my Downline Get Together - Catch UP - Laughing - Fun - Meeting This Morning. Today we are doing some Scrapbook Pages. I decided to use the SAB Everyday Enchantment Papers and the Fresh Vintage Stamp set for the pages.

I can't believe we only have just over a week until this year's Sale a Bration Ends. Email me if you still have a Wish List. Anyone placing an order with me from Today to Next Friday will get this Scrapbook Kit for FREE.

I can never decide whether to make 6" x 6" pages or 12" x 12" pages. I think sometimes the larger ones can seem a bit daunting, so I started with the 6"x 6" page and then incorporated it into the 12 x 12 page.

All the Pool Party spaces are where you would place your photo. This page has a hidden pullout for some journalling.
These are the double layout both 6" x 6". The base is Crumb Cake, Pool party and the papers are the Everyday Enchantment.
This is the 12" x 12" page with the 6" x 6" page in the middle. The Banner going across the top was made using the 1 3/8" circle punch folded in half and then popped up with foam pads.
This is the other side of the spread, the squares were enlarged to 4" x 4" squares.
This is the Double spread together. Sorry the photo is a bit dark but the light had gone when I took the photo.
Hope you enjoyed looking at these Scrapbook Pages.
Thanks for looking,

Hello Everyone!

Happy Mother's Day to MUM's.

This week we are using another tiny stamp set called Proud Peacock. It's on page 17 of the Mini Catalogue and only £10.95 for the Clear Version.

I went with Island indigo, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party for the colour combination.

The Cards are a different size. They are the Note Cards in the Stampin' UP! Catalogue. You get 20 Note Cards and 20 Envelopes in the pack.
I decided to make a Gift Box for the Note Cards and their Envelopes which I lined with the paper to match.

You can see the Gift Box filled here.

Love & Sympathy.....

Just a quick post today. This is one of my Card Buffet Cards, it uses the Love & Sympathy Stamp Set.

The Base card is Bravo Burgundy, then a layer of River Rock 10cm x 13.8cm embossed with the vintage wallpaper folder. I cut a Top Note in whisper white and used the Bravo Burgundy and Soft Suede markers for the image, stamped three times without re inking the stamp on the second and third time.

The paper is the Neutrals paper pack, River Rock, a Top Note trimmed down. The ribbon is Soft Suede Taffeta.

Everybunny Stamp Class....

Afternoon Everyone,

I have been trying to keep myself busy today as my eldest was lucky enough to get a Saturday Job this week and he started today.

We've managed to sort both allotments, tidy up the garden, washing and I've just finished the instructions for the above Stamp Class! All wondering and keeping my fingers crossed that my son is doing ok at WORK!

I don't expect we will ever stop worrying about our children! He'll be home in 10 minutes and the last time he said to me is - Will the TEA be on the table when I get in!!!!! Like Father like Son! hee hee

Anyway Enough of me waffling, but to the Stamp Class. I used Everybunny Stamp Set in the colour combination of Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The papers are Domestic Goddess.
EDITED: I have also added an Easter Banner to the Class Instructions.

Better go and finish off the Tea or I will be in Trouble.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

3D Pleated Christmas Tree!

No Your eyes are not deceiving you, YES it is a Christmas Tree! I made these last September for my October Extravaganza Table Centre Pieces and have only just gotten around to doing the instructions for them (Sorry Anne & Margeret!).

They are really fun to make and look very pretty especially as we have 4 patterns on the Designer paper stacks. The In colour paper packs are great to use as you get 8 sheets in green in both the In Colour packs. You use just over 4 sheets of paper.

Anyway must dash, if you fancy getting a head start then the instructions are available for you on the right!

You can see them on the tables if you look under my Christmas Extravaganza last October/November.

Raining Flowers Stamp Class...

Morning Everyone,

We used another stamp set from the Mini Catalogue this week, called Raining Flowers. Perfect to brighten up a very rainy day, especially with the colour combination I decided to go with. Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. All the ladies thought the Melon Mambo was a different colour it popped out so much, such nice Spring and Easter colours.

The decorated gift box will fit the cards and envelopes, but its also pefect for Easter Eggs as well. I found an Easter Egg Hunt Bag in Asda with the very same colours on the eggs. Don't ask how I know the Chocolate is Nice!
You can see the Box here filled with the cards for a lovely Gift.
The other colour combination I used was Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. The ribbon on the top of the box is the gorgeous 1 1/4" wide striped ribbon in Wild Wasabi.
In the class you learn how to do the pop out frame for the Box aperture and the cards as well.
This is the other colour combination.
