A very pink Birthday!

Good morning! 
It's Saturday! Yay I hear you say! I hope you have a fun day planned...maybe some crafting? Well if you need some inspiration to get you going, why not try our sketch at Sketch Saturday this week? It's the 5th Saturday of the month so we are having a 'free sketch' day! You can pick any of our previous sketches, but do make sure you tell us which one you went for!

So I used sketch #251 for my card...


I made this card for my friend's birthday, from her little girl. I was instructed to do 'something pink'....pink enough?? Everything is Strawberry Slush and I don't think it gets pinker do you? I used a little paper from the In Colours paper stack, and embossed a plain piece of card with stars using the cute Lucky Stars EF, which you'll find on page 30 of the new Autumn/Winter catalogue.


The sentiment, as usual, was created in MDS (so I could get true colour font) and I finished with too Bitty Butterflies punched from the stunning new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I love it!

So which sketch will you be choosing? There are so many, why not have a few entries this week?

Have a lovely Saturday!

Bright & Beautiful on a Friday!

Good morning!
I have a lovely card to show you using the lovely new Bright & Beautiful stamp set from the brand new Autumn/Winter catalogue today!

Isn't that star just gorgeous?!! I have stamped it in Lost Lagoon, then heat embossed the sentiment from the same set in silver Stampin' Emboss Powder, after first stamping in Versamark.


You can see the embossing better here. It is really lovely and gives quite a shimmer to the card. I finished with some stars punch from Silver Glimmer paper using the punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The whole panel was then popped up on Dimensionals onto a Lost Lagoon card blank.

If you would like to order anything from any of the catalogues, please do feel free to contact me, or click on the links on my sidebar >>>>>>>>

Do you have anything planned for today? I am working, gym, then crafting some commissions, then it's the final of Got To Dance...yay!
Enjoy your Friday!

Video Tutorial for Wondrous Wreath and NEW AUTUMN/WINTER CATALOGUE!!

Helllloooo!!
Ooooh can you tell I'm excited??? Well I have a VERY good reason to be! Today sees the launch of the much anticipated Autumn/Winter catalogue, and you are going to LOVE it!!

click picture to view

To celebrate, I have a little video tutorial for you, to show you the revolutionary new way Stampin' Up! have made it even easier to line up your stamps and matching Framelits!

This is the card I have made, which I blogged last week...


It is created using a 3 step stamping technique, and uses 2 Framelits to die cut it. Now while that sounds complicated, I can promise you it isn't! 

Check out my tutorial and you will see...(it's only just over 11mins long, and some of that was spent stroking the new catalogue...yes I know, I need help! ;)


Isn't the new system great?? I hope you found it easy to follow and will have a go yourself!

If you would like to order any of the items from the new catalogue, please click on the link to my online shop, over there on the right>>>>>>
or do contact me and I will be more than happy to help!

Have a lovely day and see you soon! :)


New catalogue....new home!

Good morning!
Wow where have the last few weeks gone?? I feel like I have done no real crafting, and that the summer holidays have totally flown by!

Well it is Thursday again, which means that it is time for our new challenge at CAS-Colours and Sketches, and this week it is a sketch...


Now I can tell that I haven't crafted for a while...my mojo seems to have legged it! But here is what I made anyway...


I do love this Holiday Home bundle in the brand new Autumn/Winter catalogue! Yes...bundle! There are matching Framelits to go with these lovely stamps! The set has pleanty in it to make some gorgeous Christmas cards, but I decided to go with the New Home theme today. I created the background using my Watercolour Painter pen and Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon inks. The path was stippled on using a finger dauber and Early Espresso ink.

As you may have noticed from my much earlier post today, the brand new Autumn/Winter mini catalogue is now available to order from! If your hard copy hasn't arrived from me yet, you can use the link on my sidebar to view all the new goodies, but there are lots of catalogues winging their way to my lovely customers as we speak, so watch out for the postie! ;)

I am working today, then the gym, then I hope to get some quality time back in my craftroom! See you tomorrow with another lovely Christmassy project!

Lost Lagoon Birthday Wishes

Good morning and happyban holiday Monday to all my UK friends! As usual, it is raining here, so it's a good day for crafting! 

I have a card to show you that I made using the sketch over at Mojo Monday last week, but never got round to blogging it. 


I have chosen a gorgeous colour scheme of Lost Lagoon, Daffodil Delight and sparkly silver....isn't it pretty? I do love the Silver Glimmer paper...it's soooooo sparkly!


The Butterflies are my favourite from Papillon Potpourri, and I used MDS to create the sentiment. This is a great way of getting the perfect colour match for the wording as you get to use all the Stampin' Up! colours.

I am too late to enter the challenge, but here is the sketch I used anyway...


I'm off to work now but I hope you have a wonderful day!

Sketch Saturday

Good morning Sketchy fans! 
It is Saturday morning, which can mean only one thing....new sketch time!
I have used some of the gorgeous new All Bloom DSP, petite petals stamp and punch and some retired ribbon.

The sentiment was created on MDS.


I am currently sat in a tent, in a field, so I will update this post properly when I get home Sunday.
Have a lovely weekend!
