Sale-a-Bration Final Fling!

Last week, I held my Sale-a-bration Final Fling party.  This was a free party for anyone who had joined my team during SAB, or who had spent £150 with me during SAB or hosted an event for during the three months of SAB. I made all my attendees a little gift using the gorgeous Something Borrowed suite of DSP, lace trim and embellishments. It was a scissor charm in one… Read More »

Aces and Diamonds Team Night

I recently held our monthly team get-together.  We usually get together once a month to craft, chat, and swap ideas and inspiration. I wanted to show you the swaps that my talented team made to share.  It’s a little picture heavy so I’ve reduced the size of the photos just so this post is not too hard to read.  Although my details are on the photos, these cards are entirely… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Bloom with Hope Thank you card – Made by my 7 year old!

Proud Mummy alert! You may already have seen this on my Facebook page but I am so proud of my 7ear old that I had to share here too.  It was her Birthday last week, so the time had come for the thank you cards.

I have a project to share with you today using the Crazy about You stamp set combined with some FREE Sale-a-bration paper.     I’ve CASE’d this project from US demo Ronda Wade (CASE – stands for Copy and Share Everything – something we’re very proud of in Stampin’ Up circles).  However, Ronda used a DSP on her card that I didn’t have. Yet, I really liked the Mossy Meadow scalloped… Read More »
