Pieces and Patterns Teacher Thank you for #GDP094 Challenge

My initial thought was the pens from Crafting Forever as I was thinking… Read More »

Firstly, thank you so much to the Design Team at CAS for picking my card as one of the winners in Challenge #155.

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. She didn’t want my quick solution of ‘ pick your favourite card in my studio and let’s make it’.  She insisted on designing her own. … Read More »

Well, it’s been a big week this week as it was the end of term and my son has just left pre-school behind and will head to big school in September.  I had a lot of people to thank both for his time at pre-school and my daughter’s year too.  So what better way than making a little handmade gift with Stampin’ Up! supplies? I packaged some gorgeous beauty products… Read More »

And in the year since I received it, I have to admit I have yet to ink up the little bird… Read More »
