"Happy Celebrations" card - Stampin' Up!

Welcome back! How is your week going? I can't believe how quickly February is going can you.

Okay, so today I want to share with you the third card made at this months card class. The ladies requested a Male birthday card, so I chose the "Happy Celebrations" stamp set and used a selection of brown inks, but it could be recreated in pinks or yellow and orange too to appeal to children's or female birthdays. Come and have a look.....

We used the "Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders" to create the "HAPPY" (the other embossing folder says "Celebrate"). I love how this card turned out, what do you think?

As you can see, they were having a lovely time making this card and all worked at their own pace with me on hand to give help and tips. I always love card class nights, I get such a buzz from being with these lovely ladies and enjoy seeing their faces at the end of the class when they look at what they've made.

Would you like to join us for the next class on 9th March? We'd love to see you, message me today to book now!

Here is a list of the supplies used which you can buy through my online shop by clicking on any of the pictures, or contact me and I can place your order for you if you prefer.

Thank you for stopping by today, I will be back again on Monday with some more cards to share with you... see you then! xxx

Gift box and Gift Voucher card using Stampin' Up! Candy Cane Lane DSP

Happy New Year to you! I hope you had an amazing Christmas and found some time to chill and maybe even do some crafting with your time off (If you had any..)

I was asked by my friends Husband to make a Stampin' Up! Gift Voucher for his wife... and of course I said yes! This is what I made, come and have a look!

I made sure it looked more than just a voucher so she wouldn't necessarily know what was inside it, and it worked!
This is the box, and I made a belly-band as I know re-making bows is every mans nightmare!
Here is what the inside of the gift voucher card looked like. I even covered a little chocolate with matching paper because what girl does;t want chocolate in her present??!!
And this is my little gift to the same friend, I used the "Tin of Tags" tag and I adore how it looks.

Would you have loved to receive a voucher like this? I can make gift vouchers cards for any occasion and of any denomination for you, just let your family/friends know to contact me directly and I can arrange it for them. And you to get the PERFECT gift, Stampin' Up! goodies of your choice... the only thing to add is P&P when you place your order... simples!!!

So, I'm looking forward to an amazing 2017 and I hope yours is a good one too!

Thank you for stopping by.

Please come back on Wednesday as Stampin' Up! are releasing their NEW Spring/Summer catalogue AND also the biggest promotion of the year.... Sale-A-bration! If you'd like a free copy of them, please email me using with your full postal address and I will pop them in the post for you to have good look at!

A sweet little Christmas gift using "Tin of Tags" stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I can't believe how quickly December is going... please slow it down, I'm not totally ready for Christmas yet! Are you?

Today I wanted to share with you a little cute and simple gift I've made for my work colleagues. The box is the perfect size to hold a Terry's Chocolate Orange that we can buy in the UK. If you are not familiar with them, the images below show the packaging and what's inside when you unwrap it... they are truly lush let me tell you!

I have made about 10 of these to give to my work colleagues and I think they may love the packaging I've made as much as contents inside.

The stamp set I used to make the topper and label is called "Tin of Tags" and can be found on page 33 of the Autumn/Winter catalogue, and a list of all the other items I used are below and you can purchase them from my online shop by clicking on the items.
