I will be demonstrating Stampin Up products on Thursday 25th February 2010 at Marsh Farm Country Park, South Woodham Ferrers, Essex CM3 5WP. The event is being organised by Sam of Crop Swap and Craft, you can contact her on for more details. The evening will start at 8pm. I will also be doing a make and take so do come along and say hello.

I have uploaded some little 4 inch cards using the sale-a-bration set Happy Moments, they fit inside the matching pizza box. Very Cute.

The colours used are Rose Red and Chocolate Chip and I coloured the images with the Stampin Write Markers.

The stamp used for the box lid is the very gorgeous Bella Toile stamped in white craft ink.
The sale-a-bration promotion ends on February 28th so please don't miss out. You need to spend £45.00 and you can qualify for one the 4 stamp sets free. There is is link to the catalogue on the side bar.

More Butterflies

I enjoyed preparing my last class using Flight of the Butterfly so much, I decided to make a couple more projects using a different colour scheme. I indulged myself and chose some of my favourite Stampin Up colours, Regal Rose and Certainly Celery and Pretty in pink.

I also made a 2/5/7/10 boxes from Splitcoast. These are so easy to make and look really pretty.
Finally another 4 inch easel card (I think I am addicted to these), I used some of the lovely pearls and beads from the Pretties kits on the box and the mini card.

Just a little reminder that the Sale.a.bration promotion will end on 28/02/10 so if you have been thinking you might like one of the free stamp sets do get in touch. You can find a link to the leaflet at the top of the side bar.
Thanks for looking

Many thanks to everyone who made it to my Crazy for Cupcakes class in Romford last night. We all braved freezing weather to make it. A warm welcome to Lorraine and Patricia who came for the first time, hope you enjoyed the class.

We made a 4inch easel card paper piecing the cupcake and using the scallop edge punch to make a decorative background. For the this card we decoupaged the top cup cake and added lots of glitter. We also decorated the inside using the cupcakes wheel.

Finally we used the ballon stamp, again paper pieced. The 1/2 inch circle punch was used to make the decorative corners. Crystal effects was applied to the ballons to make them nice and glossy. The stamp-a-ma-jig was well used last night with everyone finding it a great tool for positioning the stamps.

100% calorie free cakes! But I did make a batch of real cup cakes for our coffee break.

Thanks for looking

Flight of the Butterfly

We started our regular Monday night classes again last week, it was great to catch up with everyone after a bit of a break. We used two of my favourite sets, Flight of the Butterfly and Pocket shilouettes they work so well together and I had seen so many lovely examples using these. As easel cards are all the rage at the moment we created two, an A6 sized one and a 4inch square card.
Finally, a little tea light cover (LED tea light).
The butterfly punch perfectly matches the stamp set. Papers used are from the gorgeous Bella Bleu designer paper pack.

I think evey one was very pleased with their creations.
