"A Good Man" Masculine card using a NEW Stampin' Up! stamp set.....

Hello friends and fellow bloggers.... welcome!

I have been so quiet for far too long, longer than I anticipated but I am doing my best to get back to blogging, and also crafting again so please bear with me.... I've been suffering badly with anxiety and panic attacks and it's been playing havoc with my life if I'm honest. I've found that my mind couldn't focus on anything much at all, especially not sitting down at my craft space and creating, and this is so sad as it's a huge passion of mine. I have however managed to continue to crochet as for me I don't have to think too much when creating blankets or small teddy bears as my mind goes into "auto pilot". Does anyone else know what I mean? I am glad to say that I am slowly on the mend and have techniques and support to help me get back up and able to get back to enjoying and living my life again. NEVER will I take things or the people around me for granted.

Anyway, thats the short and boring background behind my silence, so here is one of the cards I've recently made using a brand NEW set called "A Good Man" and I absolutely loved making it and found the colouring in part with the blend markers so therapeutic!

I wanted to make this card in sepia, so I used a mixture of browns and a few greys to get this effect. I used the "Stitched Nested Labels Die" to make the sentiment layers, and when I cut off the left hand side of the layer I added it under the right side layer to emphasise the sentiment, like an arrow, neat huh?!

I would love to hear what you think of this card, so please let me a comment and look forward to reading them.

Stampin' Up! Notecards, frame and gift box using Pop of Petals stamp set

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I posted last.... apologies!
Life got in the way what with one thing or another, plus I started a new job in January and it's been so full on I've been in learning mode ever since! I can honestly tell you I am still really enjoying it nearly seven months later but until I have done a full twelve months it'll all still be new to me.

Anyway, it's been a tough 18 months or so and I'm finally coming out the other side, enjoying life and getting back to enjoying crafting again. I don't know about you, but I find crafting is like therapy.... 

So, below, I want to share with you a project I made at an event I attended a while ago held by some very talented crafting friends of mine and here's what I made....

The flowers are from a set called "Pop of Petals", page 48 of the NEW Annual catalogue, a matching punch to cut them out "Four-petal punch", page 210, the sentiment is from the set called "Friendly Expressions", page 54 and the "Kraft Pillow Boxes" (pack of 10) page 193.

You can place an order for these items and all the other goodies Stampin' Up! offers by Clicking HERE to go to my online shop open 24/7, or email me your order and I'll place it for you and have it delivered to your door!

I hope I shall be able to get to craft a little more over the next few weeks and if I do I'll share what I've made here on my blog.

So I know I'm not just chatting/
posting away to myself I would love to hear from you if you could spare the time to leave me a comment - it would really make my day I can tell you!

Thanks for stopping by

Stampin' Up! Christmas card and gift tag

Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2018 is a great one for all my blog followers and friends 💖

I have been busy behind the scenes making gifts, cards and presents, and this is one of the cards and gift tags I made... come and have a look.
I used all Stampin' Up! products to make them, and started off by making the tag first and added arms, cuffs and cut out the neckline. I'm glad to say the person I made this for loved it and has even saved the card as it was "special". That's the biggest compliment a crafter can get, when someone saves your work 😃

I have a plan that this year I'm going to craft for fun more, not just for classes and projects. But just for me. I have also been asked to make more things to sell at work as my colleagues loved them for teacher gifts, presents for family and friends etc. So I'll put the proceeds towards my "Orlando November 2018" fund. It's also a special birthday at the end of the year so I have a list of things I'd love to do.... so I'll keep you posted on what I've managed to plan etc.

I cannot wait to share more of my crafty creations with you along the way, so I hope to see you soon!

Tags & Trimmings BUNDLE from Stampin' Up! - Lynne Fahey's September class

Happy Monday everyone, how was your weekend? Mine was a quiet one which was nice, compared to very busy ones lately. I even got to do some crocheting, I'll pop a picture at the end of this post to show you what I made.

Okay, so today I want to share with you the final project made at my September class. I know my ladies really well now as some have been coming for more than 5 years... I love that they still enjoy the things I get them to make after all this time and they keep coming back. And one of my ladies loves to make advent calendars each year.... so I got some ideas from the Autumn/Winter catalogue samples, page 15, and came up with this... isn't it adorable!??

I used Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White cardstock and some of the Merry Little Christmas DSP for the toe and heel accents (page 12) and the sentiment is from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set using Basic Black ink.
As you can see, I got two stockings form one piece of A4 card stock, and the above and below photo's show how I laid them out to maximize the usage!

Not only are these lovely for advent calendars, they also fit a store gift card perfectly, so you can jazz up your Christmas gift giving or use them to decorate your Christmas tree too!

Can you tell how much I love this set of stamps and dies... and you can save 10% by buying the BUNDLE, which, why wouldn't you??

Hug in a Mug - September 2017 card class with Lynne Fahey

Happy Thursday to you all, I hope you are staying safe and warm, as here in the UK the weather has turned very autumnal. It's a favourite time of year for me as I love the golden, orange and yellow colours, and I try to get out with my camera and enjoy a relaxing walk where I can.

Okay, so today I want to share with you the second card we made at my September class... and it fits the "keep warm" category! Come and have a look.
You can find this set on page 42 of the Autumn/Winter catalogue... if you haven't got one yet, please do let me know and I'll happily post one to you, or you can view it online in my sidebar on the right of this post :)

I absolutely LOVE hot chocolate.... especially with fresh cream on top and marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles... yummy!

There are so many ways you can use this set, and you can keep it simple or really go to town and put all the bells and whistles on a card, gift tag, or even make a gift and frame it in a picture frame....

I hope you like the card and ideas, do leave me a comment as I love hearing from you!

Oh my word !!! I'm already hyperventilating for these......
On the 1st November, Stampin' Blends are coming to town!! these are alcohol based marker pens in selected Stampin' Up colours.... they make colouring images so quick and easy to do. More details to come!

Lynne Fahey's Buckingham Card Class - 7th September 2017

In September I held my monthly card making class at my "Crafty space" in Buckingham. And as always we had a fab night of crafting, chatting, fun and tea slurping!

Come and have a look at one of the cards we made...

You would usually associate sunflowers as yellow and brown, but i changed it up a little and used pinks and purples, what do you think? do you like the change?

The card above uses all Stampin' Up! supplies:
Card - Thick Whisper White, Fresh Fig.
Ink - Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Old Olive.
Stamp set - Painted Harvest.

You can find all of these supplies from my online shop

I hope you liked today's blog post, do let me know if you come to take a look and tell me what country you are from, and I'd love to hear from you...

Thanks for stopping by, see you again on Thursday for another card made at Septembers class.
