Over the last 6-7 months I have been running a Stamp/Hostess Club. March was the last month of the club and I wanted to share a photo of the Thank You gifts that I made for all the girls who participated.

I found these cute little photo frames in Ikea and wanted to turn into a special keepsake gift for the girls. The rest of the product is all Stampin' Up!

Papers are from the DSP range Mocha Morning. Card stock is Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Whisper White. I used Wild Wasabi card and the Little Leaves and Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits  to cut the leaves and swirls. The flowers were cut from First Edition DSP and I used the Fun Flowers Bigz Die to cut them out. I also sponged the flowers with Early Espresso ink and spritzed them with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.

I then typed my own greeting ( Life is nothing without friendship ... found somewhere over the net) using RGB colours to create it in Stampin' Up! Soft Suede and then embossed it with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder and cut it out using an Oval Nestability set. I have also used the new Labels Collection Framelits Die to cut out the Early Espresso card behind the greeting and then embossed it with the Square Latice Embossing Folder. The border was punched using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch and Soft Suede Card.

Now you really can't see it in the photo but the Soft Suede card to the right of the frame was also embossed with Stripes Embossing Folder. Finally to finish it off, I tied a bow with the Soft Suede 1.1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon attached the flower with glue dots and placed a few Basic Jewel Pearls here and there.

Thank you again to all the ladies who joined in over all those months, I hope that you had lots of fun along the way and that maybe you will be happy to join in again later in the year when the new catty is released.

Here's another card that I made using the Apothecary Art stamp set.

This is such an elegant stamp set and I love the Labels Collection Framelits that cut the images out so perfectly. I've used some of the new Blushing Bride Satin Pleated Ribbon under the greeting and also a strip of the Basic Black Striped Grosgrain. The completed image has been mounted on to a piece of Whisper White card which I embossed using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. This was then layered onto a piece of Basic Black card and then finally Blushing Bride Cardstock.

If you like the above sample and would love to create something similar, then email me to place your order.

Happy Stamping

21st Card and Album

Hi Everyone

I have been busy these last few months creating a scrapbook album for my daughter Chelsea's 21st birthday. Yesterday was the big day so now I can share what I made for her.

Firstly here is the album cover:

Happy Birthday Chella Bella ... all grown up now.

Well Sale-a-bration has come to an end and even tho that is a little sad, we have a brand new mini to kick start April and it will run through until the end of July. You can view the mini online by clicking here.

As a demonstrator, we have the privilege of being able to order products before they are released which has given me a little time to make a couple of samples which I will share with you now and which I also shared at my Mini Launch yesterday; thank you to all the ladies who came along for the fun filled afternoon.

This first one is a delicate and feminine Happy Birthday card. I have used the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper together with the Apothecary Art stamp set and the greeting is from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes. The ribbon is Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon and the flowers were made used the Boho Blossom and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. The leaf is from the Bird Builder punch. The stamped image from Apothecary Art was framed using the Labels Collection Framelits and the cute little button is from the Twitterpated Designer buttons. I think you are all going to love the Twitterpated Product Suite.

Now this next card was created using the  Mixed Bunch stamp set and the new Blossom Punch.

This card is a clean and simple thank you card. The colours I used were Whisper White, Pool Party and Island Indigo. The Seam Binding Ribbon is Pool Party, a brand new colour in the seam binding range and the embossed hearts strip is from the new Adorning Accents, Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. I have also used the Modern Label punch to punch out the Thank You which is from the Curly Cute stamp set.

BTW there are several items that will be carrying over from the Summer Mini and you can view them by clicking HERE.

If you love anything that you have seen above and would like to purchase, please email me.

Happy Stampin!
