What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #425


On Nana duties whilst I prepped for my class the weekend.  I was able to multitask and complete all the necessary stamping using Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet ready to die-cut with the matching framelits.

This photo was taken the other day but although my table looks the same today it's not as cute a picture!

My granddaughter Sm-Isla (Isla) is nine months old and would only settle for afternoon nap whilst spread out on Nana's lap.

I will be adding the finished pictures of the projects later today.

Happy crafting

Garden in bloom:

Had a really good card class this week. We made these four cards which was a bit of a challenge to get done in the 2.5 hours but they were superstars. We used shaving foam to create the background and heat embossed the flowers. Fair amount of fussy cutting was had too, I love a good fussy cutting session. Everything was created using blank card, rubber stamps and ink, no reprinted products were used.

WOYWW #421




Good morning

Boy does Wednesday come around really quick!  WOYWW is here again!  I can be found at no. 13.

This week I'm just finishing off the prepping for my card class which I hold at the local Tesco.

Love my classes as my ladies are wonderful and really good friends, we laugh and joke usually at my expense but if I'm laughing too that's ok ha ha.

Happy crafting and happy hump day.

Stampin' Up! Hello December Project Life card collection and accessory pack part two...

Here are the pictures as promised of the card pack and the accessory pack that will be available from 1st September 2016 in the Autumn & Winter seasonal catalogue.

 Each card pack contains seventy-one cards in both 3" × 4" and 4" x 6" sizes.  The cards are in the following colours Real Red, Emerald Envy, Kraft, White and Basic Black and coordinate with other Stampin' Up! products.

Let me introduce you to the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection (p.31, item #142002 £10/13.50€)....

These 3" × 4" cards are great for recording the days or using in plenty of other ways.  There are 31 cards in total - 15 in white and 16 in kraft.  Each card is double-sided.


Below is one side of the 3" × 4" cards - 32 in total.


8 of 4" × 6" cards 


and the reverse side:


In addition to the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection there is an accessory pack  (p.31, item #142693 £16.25/22€).

The accessory pack includes six of 2" × 2" double-sided cards and eight of 2" × 2" single-sided foiled cards:


There is also five 3" × 4" and two of 4" × 6" acetate foiled cards:


You will also receive twenty 3" × 4" kraft cards, one roll of white and silver washi tape, two alphabet sticker sheets, two elements sticker sheets, two red foil number sticker sheets, 48 epoxy stickers, 12 wooden shapes, 9.1m silver metallic thread, 6 flat paper clips and stamp set.


Hopefully you will be in love with this set as much as I am.  I am a true lover of the summer but I must admit I can't wait until the first of December to use this.  Each evening I will sit recording the events of the day as I eat my chocolate from my advent calendar(s).  

I actually intend to prep for my album by creating my daily cards, decorating my kraft album (annual catalogue p. 167, item #139655 £9/12.25€) and cutting co-ordination Stampin' Up! cardstock to the three sizes and embossing them using the variety of embossing folders in the catalogues.

Stampin' Up! Hello December Project Life

How exciting!!! From the 1st September you will be able to order the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Hello December 2016 Project Life card and accessory pack.

I received mine last week (advantage of being a Demonstrator is that you get to order from the new catalogue a month earlier then customers) and it has been stroked several times and oh'd and ah'd over repeatedly.

Here is a little video showing you the lovely card and accessory set which is perfect for December Daily.

Tomorrow I will be showing you pictures of the individual cards.

Happy crafting

I have decided to make these to order in various colours and styles - wedding, baby, home, birthday's etc.  If you want to, you can incorporate a photo too! The choice is yours.

This one is in an 8" × 8" box frame but other sizes are available 6" × 6", 9" × 9" and 12" × 12".

Stampin' Up! OnStage local @ Telford

So excited! I'm back amongst other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in Telford.  We get together twice a year to find out about all new exciting Stampin' Up! products.
At these gatherings we like to make swaps and then exchange them with other demo's.  At the end of the weekend I will come home with loads of lovely samples to show my lovely card ladies.
I chose to use Easter Lamb stamp set which is currently available in the Spring/Summer catalogue (until 31st May 2016).  I loved the lamb but I decided he should not only be for Easter.
In addition to doing C6 and 4" card toppers, I created a 3D project using my favourite sweets - Love Hearts!  For this project I used theTimeless Textures stamp set.
I loved doing my swaps and catching up with Stampin' Up! friends!
Looking forward to November...

Well hello there,

Been far too long since my last visit to the Stamping Ground, however as with good friends always good to be back.

Currently I'm in the process of moving into my new home, been here nearly three weeks but still loads in storage.  Of course  my crafting area is all set up and being used since the day I got the keys!

Yesterday I received my Stampin' Up! order that contained all the new in colors so I have been playing with them, making some lovely things for my blog.

Thank you for popping in, see you again soon!
