Memories and More meets You’re Priceless for #GDP096

I decided to create an Inspirational/Good Luck card using Perfect Days from our Memories and More range together with the fabulous You’re Priceless.  I particularly love this set because my own team of Stampin’ Up demonstrators are the Aces and Diamonds, so it’s just perfect for us! Here is the card from Tanja to inspire… Read More »

Monday Memories and More – Color Theory

This week I decided to play with the Color Theory, Memories and More card pack. Color Theory is a great card pack designed to coordinate with your memories throughout the seasons. I have a beach scene to show you plus a random day out to a nearby castle. My layouts use retired pocket pages so these are a different combination to those that we currently stock  (listed below) I’ve mixed… Read More »

I must admit to always being late when it comes to family occasion cards – but not this time (thanks to my sister who texted me to remind me!!).  It’s my parent’s wedding anniversary this weekend and I decided to open up my Sunshine Sayings stamps and co-ordinating Sunshine Wishes thinlit dies (sold in a money-saving bundle!!) to make them a card.

Male card using Hardwood for CC&S 175

Here is Caro’s sketch and here is my male-themed card I’ve just noticed on writing this post that I might have my circles going in the… Read More »

Happy Birthday Finn with Punch Art George!

Today was a very important day in our house as my baby boy celebrated his first birthday, so I thought I would showyou his birthday cards,.

Going Global Baby card for GDP#022

This week at the Global Design Project, it’s a sketch challenge.  Sketch challenges are my favourite as an idea seems to pop into my head with much more speed than when I see colours in a colour challenge… I normally make pretty much the exactmidea that pops into my head, but this time, my idea evolved a few times before the final card was completed.  A little bit of me… Read More »

Birthday Blooms for #GDP017

January is a month FULL of birthdays in our house so when I saw this week’s challenge over at the Global Design Project, I had not only the project but the recipient in mind. It’s my mother’s birthday on the 14th of January and I don’t think she would forgive me if I let slip her age, so Mum’s the word on that one!  However, this will be her card…… Read More »
