Mini Album


I will be doing a Mini Album Class at my house on Wednesday, March 23rd, at 7.30pm.
The design for the Album is from Jenny Moors.You can view it HERE .
You can pay for the full instructions from her or come along to my class. Kits will also be available for £10 plus postage.
I used the It's my Party Designer Series Paper Stack from the Spring/Summer Catalogue with Black, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry Cardstock.


I also use the gorgeous Melon Mambo 3/8 inch Stitched Satin Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue.


As you can see this Album has lots of pages for photos, embellishments and journalling.
In the centre there is a Waterfall part which would be a nice surprise for anyone receiving one of these as a gift.

Blooming Birthday


I enjoyed making some cards with the Blooming Birthday Stamp Set this afternoon.
The first card was cased from Julie Kettlewell. I used the Curvy Trio Punch for two of the corners and added the small butterfly from Papillon Potpourri. I used the Wink of Stella Pen to colour in the flowers. I added a drop of re inker to the corresponding ink pad lid and a drop of water. I found that the pen coloured in better with the extra water.


I got the idea for the next card from Angie at Chicnscratch. I changed the rectangle for an oval and used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set. I love these Pastel colour combinations.


The third card is also cased from Angie. I stamped the background for the base card using the Saleabration Stamp Set What I Love.The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set.


This is a small Gift Bag which I made using the Gift Bag Punch Board. It was good to get it out again as it is such a good tool to have in my Craft Room.

More Playful Pals


I am loving the Playful Pals Bundle! I did a Craft Fair last Saturday so I made lots of the triangular boxes using the Die from the Pyramid Pals Thinlets. I then added a Saleabraton chick from the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set sponged with ink.The sentiment was stamped on a tag cut from a Die in the Baker's Box Set. I managed to fit four foil wrapped mini eggs inside.


Easter Bunnies were fun to make too. The Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper makes a cute nose.


Cards are fun to make with the stamp set. I cased the first two from Tracy May at Bedlams and Butterflies HERE



The next two are from the Spring/Summer Catalogue page 44.


The one eyed monster is cased from Tracy May
