Stampinup 'happy birthday to you'

Good morning everyone, another beautiful day here in Hampshire! The sun's shining, the birds are singing and I'm led in bed staring out of the window. I'm taking full advantage of not having to get up at 6am. 
We have a few odd bits to do today so that should keep us busy for a few hours (pulling my hair out)

I wanted to share this quick and easy card with you today using the new 'happy birthday to you' saleabration set. Minimal supplies are required for this card, just a few bits of cardstock embossing powder and some stampin blends. To make this card click the YouTube video below.
             Must get out of bed now ☹️
                        Stay safe

Happy mother's day. (breathtaking bouquet)

Good evening, good evening all! 


I received my goodies from stampin up just in time for 'lock down'. I haven't had much time to craft at the moment as I'm still working and trying to home school our little one but managed to have a little go just before mother's day using the new breathtaking bouquet. I love just sitting there chatting and colouring , I find it very therapeutic. 
If you haven't already you must try 'stampin blends' they are so lovely to colour with and are so easy to create shading and depth. 
If you would like a video tutorial on how to create this card please email or message me and I will upload to my YouTube channel. 

Enjoy the rest of your afternoon, I must tidy my desk before hitting the sack. 


Take care

blog hop 29.2

A few raised eyebrows when I asked a colleague of mine to save the containers which hold our fresh fruit at work. That was until I showed them the end result. 




These clear containers are fab for small gifts and are very versatile. What's your thoughts on upcycling? 

         Have a fab evening everyone 😊

Floating frame card

Good evening all, hope you’ve all had a fabulous day!

Last night the girls came round for our regular crafternoon gathering. It basically consists of chatting about complete nonsense, drinking wine and eating chocolate 🍫, oh and crafting ..... forgot about that bit HAHA. I thought I’d make a similar card to what I made at my monthly training with @cardsandacuppa (Sarah-Jane). My girls loved the concept of it and actually didn’t mind a little fussy cutting.

I have created this video to show you how to make one of the cards we made last night. I am using different dsp due to me using all my new floral mosaic paper up #oops.

Wycombe homeless connection

Good morning all,
       
      How is everyone’s week?
I’m rather excited as I only have one night shift this week due to us being away the weekend eeeeeeek!


I had an email from one of our uk admin assistants asking for help. The help she needed was a few thank you cards to donate to ‘Wycombe homeless connection’ of course I wanted to help so emailed back straight away with a big YES ILL HELP! I knew the exact products to use.
A project kit of course, and to be specific I used the ‘incredible like you ‘ kit, unfortunately it has now been discontinued but we do have other beautiful kits in our new annual catalogue which goes live in June.  The kits are not only for beginners but for avid crafters too.

These are what I whipped up yesterday. They literally took no time at all as the kits come pre scored and die cut, all you have to do is assemble, add a few embellishments and stamp a sentiment!

                              Thank you Wycombe homeless connection you do a fab job!


If you would like to browse my online shop then click on the link bor direct message me for further details. 

If anyone would like me to send a FREE card to a charity then please email me on:
