Foil Frenzy Gift Box

Hello there and welcome to my blog today. Today I'm sharing a box that I CASED from page 76 of the new catalogue but I came up with the measurements and design all by myself! Yep I am quite proud of that one!
The Happy Birthday thinlit die that I have used on this make has been a popular choice with my customers and it coordinates with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous to create a fab bundle, see pages 76 and 77 of the catalogue. 
You may not be able to see but I actually cut out the Happy Birthday 3 times and layered it on top of each other to create a thicker effect. 
I love the Foil Frenzy papers, but you can't really call them papers! They are very thick and perfect for your 3D projects such as boxes and gift bags. 
Hope you can see how amazing the foiled element is when you catch it in the light!
Right thats me done for today, I will be back with another post tomorrow - have a great Sunday!

Birthday Memories 1st Birthday Card

Hello there and a happy Friday to you. 
Today I am sharing a special card I made for a lovely friend to give to her nephew for his first birthday last weekend. My friend is very musical, in fact it's her career and her passion so I wanted to incorporate this into the card and what better way than the little creatures from the Birthday Memories papers who are playing their musical instruments!
I did get brave and I drew on some music notes, been a while since I did these and I had flashbacks to my GCSE music in 1989 which is probably the last time I had to draw notes!
I used the same fold as I have been sharing all week, and I just LOVED how it turned out with the little creatures creating a birthday march along the card. The sky and grass was achieved by sponging some Whisper White card with the ink pads.
I decorated the back so there was room to write a message for Jamie.
And then I decided to cut out another creature and added the bear to the envelope for a finishing touch! My friend loved the card and Jamie's Mummy couldn't believe I had made it! A good job done I reckon!

Petal Garden for Tuesday Club

Hello and welcome back to my blog today! Today's card is the last in my Graceful Garden series and is a simpler version of the one I have shared over the last 3 blog posts.
As you can see from the photo below this card doesn't have the full foldy party and just has a square on the front piece with a square to write on over the back piece of patterned paper. 
Just love this card, think I might save it for myself for my birthday!
Thanks for reading today, I'll be back with something different on Friday.

Petal Garden for my friend

Hello there and welcome back to my blog today. Today's card is pretty much a replica of yesterdays but with a different sentiment. My lovely friend got taken into hospital and I had to send her a lovely card to cheer her up. It actually arrived on the day she was back home so it was great timing. 
I thought the sentiment was nicer than a Get Well Soon sentiment and I wanted to send a hug so it was perfect for the card.
Don't you just love the colours? Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Pool Party - what a combo!
And here is the card almost laid flat so you can see the full effect of it!
Thank you to those of you who have used my code so far this month. It will be open until the morning of June 30th.

Petal Garden Calypso Coral

Hey there and welcome to my blog today! Hope you are having lovely weather where you are, it's certainly been nice here for the last couple of days! So a summery floral card seems quite appropriate to share today.

Before I go into my main post I wanted to share that yesterday was my 9th anniversary with Stampin' Up! and I wanted to say thank you to those who have shared my journey with me. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am so grateful for the friends I have made through this "job". I have been to places all over the world and have made friends for life! Thank you for continuing to support me, it is so appreciated, from the bottom of my heart.

I fell in love with the Petal Garden papers as soon as I saw them at Onstage back in April and they were straight to the top of my wish list. I've used them in 3 different classes since and the ladies have all commented about the lovely colours. I have some more makes that I will share with you over the coming days with other papers from the stack.
As with Friday's card this is a CASED from a design by our talented team member Amanda, you can find her tutorial here, so easy to follow and in inches too if you prefer that to metric. 
The colours used on this card are Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Pool Party with Whisper White of course. Spot the new ribbon, it's one of my new faves, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon. Have to say there are some fantastic new ribbons in the new catalogue, spoilt for choice this year!
I hope you enjoyed this make and I will be back tomorrow with another one from the same suite!

Petal Garden Double Z Joy Fold Card

Good Morning and welcome back to my blog today. Today I am sharing something new from the new catalogue made with the Petal Garden Suite of products, you can see these on pages 56 & 57. Last weekend I hosted a private Crafternoon Tea for a group of 11 ladies and this was one of the projects we made. 
I really loved playing with this suite and think the colour combination is just divine! It's Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive with Whisper White.
The card design was totally CASED from our wonderful team member Amanda Bates and you can see her tutorial HERE. Thanks Amanda, a constant inspiration to many crafters. 
Now that I have photographed the card I may go back and add some more flowers. I wasn't sure if the ladies would have time for more so I made add some on the inside! What do you think?
If you fancy getting your hands on these products then they are listed below and all available on my Online Store
