Baby announcement

Whilst having a break from Christmas cards I came across this lovely card that I hadn't shared with you that my crafty friend and fellow demo Amy gave me following the birth of her beautiful baby boy in August... I put it on the mantel piece on display and totally forgot about sharing it.

Amy made a whole stash of these so they are nice and quick... great for announcing an arrival but also great for a congratulations or christening card too.

Check out Amy's blog for the full details here.

Another robin card

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  It's less than 2 months until Christmas so don't leave it too long!  I still have a space for my class on Thursday this week if you would like to joing us and make 12 post friendly cards (4 of each of 3 designs) for just £12.
Here is another card which we made last week.

The stamp set is a new one in the main catalogue, For the Birds and has a lovely collection of birdie themed images which are great for colouring in and a variety of occasions.

For the card above I've coupled a Crumbcake base with Real Red for the Framelits Labels Collection die cut frame and Real Red Taffeta ribbon over some of the lovely papers from the Festival of Prints DSP pack in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

Blended robin

The lack of posts the last couple of days were due to me being extremely unwell, which doesn't happen very often so I was unable to do anything :(.
I'm back up and functioning again but still a little fragile.
Being so ill meant I haven't had a chance to do any crafting, or much else really, but fortunately still have a few cards to share with you so the scheduled posts will be back with more over the next few days.
Last week, I had my second Christmas card club session, and the last one is this Thursday, in case you fancied coming along - see full details here.
Here is another of the cards we made this week using the lovely Beautiful Season stamp set.  A simple card made with a Garden Green base and strips of Real Red, the image panel is Very Vanilla and as well as colouring this with a blender pen using Stampin' Write markers the edges have been sponge daubered with Early Espresso ink to create a 'vintage' feel.

I always find colouring very therapeutic, but perhaps having to colour 4 of these cards in one evening was a little bit challenging!  However, the ladies got them all done though, along with the other designs :).
If you would like to have a private class in your own home to make some special Christmas cards, I would be very happy to come along and run one for you.  I have some availability through November so please contact me via email at for more details.

Punch art santa

I'm afraid I've sneeked my current favourite stamp set onto one of the Christmas cards that we made at my Christmas card club session last night :)!

Those little alpabets form the Occasions Alphabet stamp set are just great for everything...
The card features a punch art santa made from a variety of punches:
Scallop Circle
1 3/8 Circle
Word Window
1 1/4 Square (cut in half diagonally to create hat)
Owl Punch (nose and hat bobble)
The papers are from the Festival of Prints DSP pack... which is also great for no Christmas cards - check out the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue on page 20 to see for yourself.
And if you fancy some of those Googlies - googly eyes, they come in packs of 50 and are just £2.25.
I'm placing an order soon so you can also save on postage if you live close to me (GU16) and can collect your products.

Swinging thank you

Have you seen the hostess sets in the main catalogue?
The card I have to share with you today includes one of the images from the Summer Afternoon hostess stamp set:
Here's the card which uses some of the papers from the Patio Party DSP pack...

The flash didn't work on my camera so the pic looks a little dull.  I've used Pink Pirouette for the Label Collection framelits and Whisper White for the image piece.  The image has been coloured with blender pens using Stampin' Write markers and I've attached a length of the Organza ribbon behind the panel.
If you would like to get your hands on this stamp set or any of the other hostess sets, you don't actually have to hold a party or workshop.  Instead you can just collect orders from your friends/family and earn hostess pounds in return.  Contact me to find out more, or of course book a party or workshop.

Owl treat

Only time for a very quick post today as been working into the night/early hours and back at it again today before I can go home!  The good news is that I have also packed up most of my stuff from the house in Cambridge which I vacate next week, although I don't really see much of an end to working up there anytime soon - but the days will be lessening for a while :).
Here's a little treat created by my upline Cate, which she created for a swap at our last demonstrator get together.

Full details can be found on Cate's blog.
On a separate matter - If you like to travel, please do also check out my other site/blog as I have another trip planned in November and hope to share with you some other travel related content in the coming weeks.

Loving the Occasions Alphabet stamp set so much

Perfect for scrapbooking and personalising cards I absolutely love the Occasions Alphabet stamp set and can't get enough of it. 
Here's a carc made to congratulate a couple on their new home.  Featuring the cute little cuckoo clock stamp from the Easy Events stamp set, mounted on a Decorative Label punch... 

There are of course some lovely little sentiments that goes with the alphabets, which makes them so versatile as there is something for many occasions.

Peek-a-boo baby card

Phew what a weekend... I'm knackered!
Saturday was a crafting day and yesterday was a day of walking in the rain.  Today I'm back in the world of work... and fortunately at home for the day, but up to Cambridge tomorrow.
So today I have a commission to share with you for a a friend/colleague, and I'm really excited because I got to play with my new Occasions Alphabet stamps again :). 
You will see that the card features one of the stamps from a hostess set in the main catalogue, Happy You. 

I've cut a piece of Bashful Blue with the Perfect Pennants die on my Big Shot machine and then also cut a Whisper White piece and trimmed off the border before stamping the image in the centre.  I've used a blender pen with Stampin' Write markers to colour the cute little baby.
The base is Crumbcake and I've stamped the lettering from the Occasions Alphabet stamp set inked with a Marina Mist Stampin' Write marker and then punched out with a 1/2 inch circle and mounted on a 3/4 inche circle of Bashful Blue.
Finally some lengths of Whisper White grosgrain ribbon on the bottom and a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set... and voila.
If you host a party or workshop you will be entitled to the hostess rewards of £'s to spend on products, including the lovely Happy You stamp set featured on this card.  See further details here and Contact me to book your party or workshop today.

Christmas isn't Christmas without trees

Even as someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas I have to admit to putting up a tree last year, just so that I could admire it :).  Ok, so there was a bit more to it... I'm not completely against Christmas.  However it is a bit early to be sharing Christmas card ideas with you, but before you know it December the 25th will be here and you won't have time to craft, so I urge you to get a making your cards early.
Here's the 3rd and final card from this weeks Christmas card club session, using the lovely Scentsational Season stamp set again, but this time the trees...

The base is Real Red, I've then added a strip of the Festival of Prints DSP to the bottom and cut a Scallop Circle die from Whisper White which I have then run through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to create the backdrop for the trees. 
The trees have been inked in Old Olive and then cut out using the co-ordinating dies.  I've added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to the top of the trees but think they could do with a few more scattered around.

More Christmas themed cards to follow after my next class on Thursday this week, but I promise tomorrow I will have something non-Christmassy for you.

Cute polar party stamps

Yay it's the weekend and yay I'm not working!
With a nice lie in this morning catching up on some reading ahead of my next trip I almost forgot about not having anything scheduled on here. 
I'm off to finish off the rest of my class prep for the coming weeks but as promised here is another of the cards we created at this weeks Christmas card club...

The Polar Party stamp set is just soooo cute, and with a few little characters and bits and pieces to choose from I tried to keep this card simple, as we had 12 to make in less than 3 hours (should have been 2 and a half - but those bows [see yesterdays post]!).  As usual I probably got carried away with the intricasies of cutting out and embossing :).
The base is Pool Party and I have inked the tree and sentiment stamps with Versamark ink and then embossed with Whisper White embossing powder using a heat gun.  It creates a lovely effect but can be a little bit fiddly.  The ladies at my class got into it quickly, but the cutting out of the little characters defeated them a bit and as I had sneakily planned, this was a great project to take home to finish off cutting out in front of the telly (or wherever).
One more thing I have to share with you is the snow... it's a piece of Shimmery White card which has been run through one of the dies from the Finishing Touches Edgelits in the main catalogue on page 190.  The other one is more intricate, but the zig zag design is idea for this card (I think).
I still have space for my Christmas accessories class on Saturday 27th October at 10.30am if you are interested.  Just contact me at .

First Christmas card club session

It's that time of year again... I actually can't believe it was a year ago since my last Christmas card club started!  Last night I had my first session and we made 3 cards, 4 of each design. 
Here's the quick card that easily became the one that took the longest... tying all those bows!

The base is Whisper White and then I've embossed a piece of Real Red with the new Argyle embossing folder and attached it as the background.
The Old Olive strip has been embossed with the Stripes embossing folder... and then each of the candy canes from the Scentsational Season stamp set in the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue has been cut out with the co-ordinating dies.
The sentiment is from one of the new hostess sets in the main catalogue, Wacky Wishes, but I've just used the first part of the wording and then punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.
All very straightforward until those bows... created with Lucky Limeade bakers twine... a little bit fiddly to say the least.  The trick is to have a much longer piece than you need, to tie the bow and then cut the ends off.
If you would like to order anything from either of the catalogues of book one of the remaining spaces on my upcoming Christmas card club sessions, just email me at

Check back tomorrow for another one of the cards we created...

Scrapbooking my trip

With just 3 full days in Lake Garda over the weekend (check out my travel blog for more details), I was desperately collecting bits and pieces for my travel scrapbook (or Smash book), and on my return was able to finish it off with some of the new stamp set's from the new Stampin' Up! main catalogue...

I've used the Occasions Alphabet stamp set for the lettering on both pages, inked in Pacific Point onto Whisper White card and then punched out using a 1/2 inch circle punch and mounted on a 3/4 inch circle of Pacific Point card.

Of course I had to carefully ink with my Stampin' Write markers to avoid introducing the rest of the sentiments on each stamp :).  Here's a close up:

I have then also inked and stamped a couple of the images from the For the Birds stamp set, which has 8 brilliant choices... I stuck to the romantic looking ones to depict Verona and Romeo and Juliet...

I love the way the Stampin' Up! colours co-ordinate with the papers in the Smash book, more luck than anything else... but the circle punches make it so easy to create quick embellishments.  I will definitely be using this idea for my cards.

If you would like to get your hands on either of these stamp sets or anything else from the current Stampin' Up! catalogues just contact me to place your order.

For mixed twins

Back to regular posts hopefully now I am back :).
I received a request to make a congratulations card following the birth of mixed twins.  Initially I was a little stumped at what I could create for both a boy and a girl and what colours to use.  However So Saffron and Whisper White came to the rescue, as did the little ducky from the Every Little Bit stamp set...

I've used a square Whisper White base and then stamped the little ducky in Marina Mist, Regal Rose and More Mustard before colouring with Stampin' Write markers using a blender pen and Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron inks.
I've then cut out the panel using one of the Labels Collection framelets and cut a large shape from a piece of So Saffron which I have then run through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set which is new in the main catalogue.  The baby names have been printed onto Whisper White and cut and matted onto a strip of So Saffron card stock to finish.
I hope little Aimee and Aiden like it x

Lovely as a tree

Well I did in fact get back into the UK from Italy late last night and have been back at work today... I'm a bit behind on my travel blog posts but I have a couple of entries so far from my long weekend which you can catch up on here if you are interested.
On the crafting front, today I have another swap to share with you.  This one is absolutely gorgeous, although the photo just doesn't do it justice!  Created by a recently new demonstrator, Lauren, apologies that I don't have a link to her site to share with you (not actually sure if she has one?).

Lauren has used the long standing Lovely as a Tree stamp set, which has been in the Stampin' Up! catalogue forever... but it's a stamp set that I absolutely love. 
Using an Elegant Eggplant base and adding Bashful Blue (carefully rounded on 2 corners) behind the Very Vanilla image panel, Lauren has stamped the image and added Dazzling Diamons Stampin' Up! glitter... which I just love, however am never brave enough to use as I get really messy.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes which has been raised up with a dimensional and embellished with the leaf image from the same stamp set.
My Christmas card club starts on Thursday evening and I can squeeze in one more person, so if you would like to come along let me know asap via email at so I can prep all the cards you will be making :).

Timeless glasses

By my calculations I should be home from Lake Garda, Italy tonight.  Sadly, this means back to work tomorrow too...
Here's another fabric project, which are fast becoming regular on my blog... thanks to my mum!

I've seen a few glasses cases made with Stampin' Up! materials on the web, but the creation of a 'his and her's matching glasses case set, one with a hard case and one with a quilted case, has to be the first :).
I'm not going to try to explain how she did it, but if you want a pattern I am sure my mum will be able to provide one. 
More importantly if you want to place an order for any of the fabrics in the catalogue's or anything else then just contact me at

Mixed bunch rock and roll

I have a new technique to share with you today... well, it's new to me in terms of not having tried it before.  Known as the rock and roll technique and using 2 ink pads you have to ink up the stamp in one colour and then the other around the edges, by rocking and rolling the stamp around where you want the ink to go.
Ok, so that is a rubbish explanation, but think you can get the idea from the card instead :).  I've used Daffodil Delight and Real Red with one of the stamps from the Mixed Bunch stamp set.
Apologies to those of you who have noticed, I used a retired border punch on the edges... but by the time I realised it was too late to rectify. 
The Mixed Bunch stamp set has a co-ordinating punch that makes cards like this a dream to create.  The rock and roll technique I will be using again... and a stamp set too!
If you would like to order this stamp set or anything else form the Stampin' Up! catalogues, just contact me to place your order at

My other hobby

If you don't know already, other than my obsession with all things crafty, I am also a very keen walker.  In fact I still have a large number of the 214 Wainwright mountains to climb in the Lake District, but fortunately the rest of my lifetime to try and achieve them :).
I'm currently in Lake Garda for a long weekend, hoping to collect a few more geocaches and hence the relevance of this post - ish!  Check out my travel site here if you are interested, which I will update with my travel posts as soon as I can.
Last year I got properly introduced to the world of geocaching which is a outdoor treasure hunt game, and have been completely addicted ever since.  Whatever the weather you will often find me out and about somewhere, if I'm not crafting the hours away, that is.
In August I collected my 1000th geocache, just over a month before the 1st year anniversary of my first find, back on 23rd September 2011.
And what better way to mark both those occasions than to combine my other hobby with my love of crafting and create something for my scrapbook?

You will see that Stampin' Up! products have got some use on these pages, with the Open Sea stamp set featuring on the background papers (if you look closely?), inked with Marina Mist.  I've also captured the geocaching logo colours using squares of card stock in So Saffron, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Calypso Coral, embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.
I am so glad to see the Open Sea stamp set back and included in the new main catalogue... it's ideal for me and my travels and many other occassions...
Remember if you want to place an order just contact me at, I will be back on Monday evening so can place your order then.

Betsy's Blossoms bookmark

I'm off to Italy today - Lake Garda to be precise :)... but you can keep tabs on me via my other site and blog.
Whilst I am gone, plenty of scheduled posts for you so don't worry!
Today I have a little bookmark to share with you made by a fellow demonstrator - Pip.
Pip has used Pool Party for the bookmark itself and Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight to decorate. 

The Betsy's Blossoms stamp set isn't my sort of set, but then I saw this bookmark... :).  If I don't buy it for myself, it's because I already have too many other sets to play with first, but it's on my wish list!
Do you have a wish list?  Maybe now is the time to start compiling one ready for Christmas or an upcoming birthday, you can then get your family/friends to place an order with me and get something you actually want... check out my wish list page and get them to contact me today at or via telephone on 01252 834132 / 07968 951957.

Owl occasions

If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will no doubt know that I love the Owl punch :).  But despite thinking I loved him so much that I wouldn't ever have eyes for another owl again (lol)... there's a cute little owl in the Owl Occasions stamp set in the Autumn/Winter catalogue that has caught my eye!
Julie, a fellow demonstrator gave me this cute little swap at a recent get together... I always love her ideas and this one is no exception.

Julie has used a Soft Suede base and then run a piece of Crumbcake card stock through the Woodgrain textrued impressions embossing folder (also from the Autumn/Winter catalogue).  For the frame, she has used one of the Window Frames framelits dies and slipped Mr Owly onto some Very Vanilla.
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set... they have matching dies to make cutting out easy, but you can cut them out by hand too.

Tiny tag anniversary

Today I have a card which uses one of the stamp sets which was in the old main catalogue and fortunately will remain with us in the new catalogue, Tiny Tags...

I need to spend a bit more time with the stamp set, as there are lots of cute little images and sentiments which would suit so many different occasions.  Here I have just used some Shimmery White card stock as the background on a Pink Pirouette base and then inked the 'heart' image in co-ordinating ink onto scraps of Shimmery White card stock and then cut out by hand and mounted on dimensionals over one of the 'deocrative/leafy' images inked in Certainly Celery.
I've used some Linen Thread across the base of the card and added a couple of tags punched with the Jewellery Tag punch from Shimmery White card as well, with the Mr & Mrs/Love sentiments.  Finally Teeny Tiny Wishes for an appropriate occasion - an anniversary.

Flirtatious hair embellishments

Back to work and a very hectic workload today...
Here's a neat idea to use up any remaining scraps of fabric that you might have, or why not check out page 170-171 of the main catalogue, as there are lots of new fabrics now available as well as some of our old favourties.
This idea uses the Flirtatious fabrics to create little hair embellishments...

I must confess that I'm not the sewing kind, but my mum assures me these are very straight forwad to make, so those of you that can handle a needle and thread should have no problems :).
They would also make great back accessories... in fact, the ideas are endless.

Today I have another card to share with you that uses the same bits and pieces as the ice cream card we created yesterday.  Some of the ladies also made this card so they could have a play with the stamp set and the stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure the little 'bow' around the cupcake case was straight!

Catalogue launch event ice creams

It's been a busy day of crafting, with my catalogue launch event this afternoon and then some more crafting with friends... I was so engrossed I completely forgot to take photo's of their great cards :(.
I've also been finalising the card designs for my upcoming Christmas card club... and then my sister arrived and after dropping her off this evening to a wedding reception I have finally sat down :)
So here is the make and take project that I CASE'd from a card that my crafty friend Amy shared with us as her swap at a recent demonstrator get together.

Here's Amy's card:

This card uses the Cupcake Builder punch... to create ice creams.  You will see we have used Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla card stock for the different lumps of ice cream and the cone is actually created from Crumbcake card stock, using the base of one of the pennants from the Perfect Pennants die, although the Petite Pennants Builder punch would work just as well.  The cone has then been embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.
For the make and take card I've used a Very Vanilla card base and a Decorative Label punch cut from Pool Party card stock for the background piece. 
Check back tomorrow for a slight twist on the make and take card which utilises the lovely Create a Cupcake set that is now back in the main catalogue, and from which I have used the sentiment for the card above.

Wedding butterflies

Hopefully Tori and Macca will not be getting any wedding butterflies this morning though!  I'm off celebrate with them later today as they finally get married.  It should be a great day, here's the card I made them...

Using Calypso Coral and Gumball Green (new in colour) with Shimmery White card stock I've utilised the Labels Collection framelits and Beautiful Wings embosslits.  If you look closely you will see the white central frame has been stamped with one of the images from the Apothecary Art stamp set and coloured with Stampin' Write markers in co-ordinating colours.
The wedding stationery colours (as you will know if you are a regular follower of my blog) were the old in colours Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait, which are no longer available, but I think these 2 colours make a healthy replacement :).
I've also added a embossed strip of Shimmery White over a strip of Gumball Green card stock, embossing with one of the Adorning Accents folders.  Finally Teeny Tiny Wishes 'For the Newlyweds' fits just nicely and a few Basic Pearls.

Losing track of the days...

That is my excuse for a late post today... I haven't had a chance to keep my scheduled posts up to date as have been frequenting Cambridge for work the last few weeks and working very long hours :(.
I do actually have lots of projects to share with you so will try and improve the updates in the coming days.
Today I have a fitting idea for someone like me perhaps... to keep track of what day it is ;).
I created 16 of these for the last demonstrator get together that I attended - last Friday.  When we get together we like to create 'swaps', which basically means a project idea in multiples which we then swap with each other so that we can build up our samples and share ideas.
I have used one of the new stamp sets from the new main catalogue which was released this week - Memorable Moments.
It would be great for age related cards and anniversaries, but here I have used it to create a fridge magnet calendar.

The base is Old Olive and then I have cut a piece of Crumbcake cake stock using one of the Labels Collection Framelits dies and then run it through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  Onto that I have adhered another framelit with the border image and 2012 stamped in Real Red ink.  Finally a quick border of Real Red cardstock for the mini calendar and a magnet on the back and it's done.

These would make great little gifts and are reasonably quick to make, I made 16 remember!

Showcasing summer starfruit

So the new catalogue is out, the new in colours are out and if you sign up as a demonstrator in October or November you can get FREE papers for 6 months!
Now for some project ideas...
This card introduces the new Summer Starfruit in colour, which, if I am honest, I initially turned my nose up at.  
When I saw the new Comfort Cafe suite on page 130 of the main catalogue, I changed my mind as Summer Starfruit works so well with autum colours, which I just love.
The card above is a Pool Party base which I have pierced using the new Paper-Piercing Tool on page 181 of the new catalogue.  I've then created faux stitching with a Stampin' Write marker pen over the holes.
For the centre piece I have die cut Summer Starfruit card stock and Soft Suede using the Labels Collection Framelits dies and then mounted some of the lovely Comfort Cafe fabric onto card with the fabric adhesive roll and then die cut a buttrefly using the Beautiful Butterflies die.  A couple of Basic Pearls to finish and a sentiment.
