This week saw the 2nd Birthday of a friend’s little girl, who was having a Jungle Themed Birthday Party. I love using Punch Art for kids cards and saw all sorts of inspiration online for this one. Isn’t he cute?
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Well I was spoilt rotten this morning to some gorgeous underwear from hubby, so I don’t expect any flowers to be delivered to the house today, but I do expect a UPS delivery, which can only mean one thing! …… A Stampin’ Up! delivery of goodies!! How very exciting!! I so love opening the box, even if the contents isn’t for me, and searching through the lovely new products to inspire me.
To make this card, I used both the Heart a Flutter Stamp Set and matching Framelits Dies from the Spring/Summer Catalogue. Stampin’ Up! are now offering many co-ordinating sets like this in a Savings Bundle, saving you 15% when bought together. I also used the Stamp Set, That’s the Ticket … Call me old fashioned, but I just love the look and feel of a traditional ticket, so I absolutely love this stamp set and it’s so versatile.

I’ve enjoyed an unexpected afternoon of crafting and have been surprised at the amount I’ve managed to achieve.
Finally, thanks to Sale-a-Bration, I have another Sentiments Stamp Set, which I just love!
I decided to cover one of the Stampin’ Up! Kraft Gift Boxes with the gorgeous Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper, available FREE during Sale-a-Bration. The Rich Razzleberry button used to embellish is also part of one of the FREE choices available during this promotion and comes with two other colours, Pool Party and Tangerine Tango, along with matching ribbons.
…. and there is still one sentiment that I’ve not used.
Yet another great FREE Stamp Set available to choose from when you spend £45 on Stampin’ Up! products during Sale-a-Bration.
Remember, these sets are exclusive to Sale-a-Bration and are unlikely to be available when the Promotion ends.
Today I’ve been having a play with another one of the lovely FREE stamp sets available during Sale-a-bration.
I find this layering flower just so pretty and just so versatile. Here I have chosen to ink up only one segment of it to scatter across the card in Sahara Sand and Pool Party. The base card is the Midnight Muse In Colour.

Today I have been making a few Valentines Cards …. just a few! …. I’ve no idea quite why our 2yr old needs so many, but I’ll ask no questions … 😉
It gave me a good excuse to sit down and trial the lovely new stamp set, ‘Hearts a Flutter’ from the new Spring/Summer Catalogue, along with the co-ordinating Framelits Dies.

I’ve a whole host of cards that need making for this month, but sadly the first and most important one, was a Sympathy card.
I wanted something quite pure and simple, so I used the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder along with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits all in Whisper White. Very simple, but very effective.
This weeks classes were all about Femininity and everything beautiful, which seemed the perfect way to launch the new Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue.
Packed full of beautiful and unusual embellishments, this catalogue left me inspired. I had Mothering Sunday in mind when I thought of this class, but each item could be suitably tailored to any other occasion. The new Catalogue takes us right through Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day, Weddings and Bridal/Baby Showers it really packs a punch for a 39 page publication.
In bygone years, ladies were adorned with Lace, pearls, flowers and brooches and so I simply couldn’t resist but make use of the Soda Pop Bottle Tops, flattened by going once through the Big Shot, to make a stunning Brooch effect. Who would have thought that a retro bottle cap could be used in this way?
