Beautiful Bouquet 3D class projects


On Sunday I held my new 3D class where we had five and half hours of crafting. The ladies attending were regulars at my monthly card class and we wanted to do more than just cards.

As a result I prepped samples for a 8" x 8" canvas board, pop up card, gift card holder and a tent gift box. We had great fun creating these products.

We used products from the current Stampin' Up! catalogue with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and co-ordinating framelits. There was quite a bit of stamping and die-cutting involved but the results were worth it.

Looking forward to next months classes.

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.

What's on Your Work desk Wednesday #418



Well hello and welcome

I have not posted on this site in quite a long time so I thought I was long overdue a visit.

I have been crafting for a upcoming craft fair as I have recently moved house I have resorted to using my sofa... again lol.

These are punch outs of stamp sets that I have used and they will be mounted onto florist wire and placed in vases.

Pictures of completed products will be added at a later time.

Happy Hump Day
