Not so good news…but if I say it quickly…

Just a very quick post for some not so good news…but if I say it quickly it shouldn’t hurt too much….BUT….

Stampin’ Up! have taken down the online store to make compliance adjustments. At this point we are uncertain about how long these adjustments will take, but we hope to have them completed in the next few weeks….and then the online shopping can commence!!!!

Please accept my apologies for this, but it really is beyond my control. xxxx

New Challenge ……That Craft Place….

Good Morning Girls!

What a fabulous weekend so far and wasn’t yesterdays weather just spectacular? I spent most of my day in the city but I was around for sunrise and sunset and both were beautiful!  Why was I up that early?  I was taking my youngest son to catch a flight to the Channel Islands where he and a couple of other Sea Cadets are going to be sailing a yacht back to Falmouth! What a totally exciting way to spend half term! I am so envious!

Okay – onto the challenge for this time….must use punches and dies….here is my project…Punches and Dies

I punched out 1 1/2inch circles and turned them into the lily type flowers, I then punched out 1 3/4 inch scallop circles and curled them into the rose type flowers. My dies cuts were made with Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and Spellbinders Butterfly corner. The green leaves were just hand cut and folded and shaped with my bone folder. Lisa and Lynn over at That Craft Place can help you with any of these supplies and many more so you can take part in the challenge  – share your projects and show us what you have made with your Punches and Dies….

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

 

So Much to share…..

Good Morning Ladies….

I have so much to share with you today…some very exciting things but first I must bring our Stampdelicious by Stamp up to date – the kits are going out early next week so all the girls who have ordered/booked and paid for one should have them by middle of the week ideally – but please allow for the bank holiday no post on Monday….

What are the girls going to be making this month Lorraine, I hear you shout….well I am very glad you asked and I hope you will all like the projects……. First up I gave a sneak preview of this I think earlier in the month….

Thank You box...
Thank You box…

This little box holds a secret – the box is made with Bashful Blue (RETIRING sob sob – I love this colour) Midnight Muse card-stock and ea for Two DSP.  But what’s inside? image0262

This is just the start…I have continued the colour scheme inside and used die cut alphas from Stampin’ Up! Bigz Simple alphabet set, some linen thread and one of the gorgeous glass cut buttons.  But wait…there’s more….image0263

And here it is all laid out – I really enjoyed making this and can see more being made in the future.

First of all I need to thank Kirsteen Gill as I have been graciously given her permission to offer this as our project – Kirsteen has some wonderful ideas and projects and you can view them all here.  So some close ups…and there is a delightful card with lined envelope to go with this project but my photo’s were dreadful and I didn’t want to wait any longer to get this post out – I am already waaaaaayyyyy late with it as it is!image0260 image0259

Isn’t it lovely?  My Monday night girls saw it in the making and have decided they need to do one too. It is made with Whisper White card Stock, Polka Dot Parade, Little Leaves and Fashionable Hearts Sizzlits and the beautiful Whisper White organza ribbon – all from Stampin’ Up! I also used the Holidays Piercing mat and tool round the egde. All of these products can bought direct from my Stampin Up Shop?   OH YES!!!! and here is the link    http://stampdelicious.stampinup.net You can order anything you want from here and it will be delivered straight to your door!

And finally…….This card was a collaboration between myself and my Monday girls. They needed to make a half A4 wedding card for a very good friend of theirs…her loves are pink, butterflies and bling! the starting place was a card we made in class and that had been my swap from the Glasgow Mini convention back in March…but hereimage0264

Apologies for the messy background – This is a design from a German demo – I think I have mentioned her before and unfortunately her details are escaping me right now but I will find them for you.  And this is the collaborative finished project – I am so pleased with how it turned out – the one the girls took away with them had the butterflies all in pink and was stunning!  Thank you to Roisin and Angela – it was lovely working with you both!image0257

And the time flies by again……NEWS Flash….NEWS Flash….NEWS Flash

Goodness me! time has got away from me again! My training for my new job has seen me in bed just after ten almost every night now for weeks – I cannot believe that once upon a time I used to stay up until the early hours crafting – I am lucky to have two eyes open at ten at the moment!  However, I am hoping that some normality will resume as today was my ‘graduation’ – the end of the first part of my training – the technical stuff!  Never a whizz at maths, my job sees me with a calculator in hand most of my working day and spinning computations out like like a babys rattle out of a pram! Who’d have thought eh?

Okay – the real stuff we want to know about…News First….   Well Stampin Up! have done it again – RIGHT ON TREND!!!!!and everyone is going mental for these…..DEMO_B1_This-and-That_EU

Stampdelicious by Stamp – Huge apologies for this – I am way way way behind with this months kits.

I am going to hold this kit over through May and have the next full kit sneak peak at the end of May, just to give myself a breather – I  hope you all understand….  For those of you who have paid already, your kits will be coming out early next week, for anyone who would like a kit….hit the PayPal button up at the top of the page and I will get your kit out to you once I have confirmation of your details. Then…at the end of MAY we will have our next sneak peak for the next kit…..Might even have This and That involvement…..but you will have to wait and see…. okay onto the sneak peaks….image0253image0252 image0251
