Spa Time - Small Gifts

Thought I would share the little gifts we made earlier this week . They are all holders - for teabags, notebook, post it note pad and chocolates....

Upon request... I am running an extra workshop next week when you can make either these OR the mini pizza box and small cards shown below. The workshop will be on Thursday 29th October from 1 till 3.30pm

Do let me know if you want to come on Thursday - also which project you would like to do....

New SU stamp set - Medallion Background

I had a quick break from making cards etc for Christmas classes, ILWS swaps and more samples with my new sets today.

I needed to get a sympathy card off in the post pronto! And then came the block.... but I was quickly saved by the UPS man turning up with my much awaited new Medallion background stamp ( Page 60; code 115223, £14.95 plus P&P) And oh do I love this one!! You may get fed up of seeing it over the next few months.....

So my new fave Elegant Eggplant ink came out again and minutes later I was off to the postbox!! I used the new 1 3/4" circle punch (Page 89; code 117405; £12.50 plus PP) for the centre Taken with Teal medallion. The flower is from the Pretties kit ( Page 85, code 109887, £23.25 plus for a box of 10 sets - or £2.50 for 1 full set from me!) and the clear rhinestone brad is from the new box of 84 clear brads (page 85;code 113144; £7.75 plus PP) or in the Pretties kit as before... And my favourite oval punches came into use again ( Page 85, codes Large Oval 115156 and Scallop Oval 115429; both £12.50 plus PP)

Just a little detail - I coloured the rhinestone brad with my trusty purple Sharpie pen.... so you can have these fabulous brads in any colour that you have permanent marker pens for!!! So I think these brads will be in continuous use too.....

More new stamp set samples- Say It With Scallops

Another day... another new stamp set. This time it is the Say it With Scallops set ( Page 58; Code 111678, Price £14.95 plus PP)

Some of you will recognise these as they were a quick & simple set we made in a session the other week along with the mini pizza box - and a session I have been asked to repeat for those that missed it! So watch this space!

Please do email me if you are interested in coming to papercrafting sessions and you live in the North/West Yorkshire area - I will be delighted to send you the current schedule.... ( I have not worked out how to put it on my blog yet...but in time I will!)

New SU stamp set samples - Circle Circus

So it is time for some more samples using the new stamp sets.

This time it is Circle Circus (Code 115778 on Page 55, costs £23.95 plus P&P) I just can't stop using this one... these circles are just so good... and can you spot the golf ball!? And the new large 1 3/4" circle punch made punching those large circles very easy ( Page 88; Code 117405; £12.50 plus P&P)

I also used

  • the SU! 1 3/8" punch to make the little handbags. I just cut across the top of the circles!

  • the SU! scallop circle punch to make the foldover on the bags. Just cut across 3 of the scallops

  • the SU! oval and scallop oval punches to make those bag handles

  • the SU! tag punch and tag stamp from the Merry Moments set (Page 16) on the topiary card... I just cut off the top of the tag!

  • the SU! large star punches on the kraft card
NOTE - you can now buy packs of 12x12 kraft cardstock from Stampin' Up! too. Hooray!! 20 sheets for £5.95 plus P&P. Details on page 80....

More new SU stamp set samples - Flight of the Butterfly

And here are some clean & simple (CAS) cards etc I made using the new set called Flight of the Butterfly. You will find this set on page 43; item code 111564; and it costs £23.95 plus P&P.

This is one of the new sets I most expect to"fly"off the shelves... especially as it has a punch to match ..... which is on page 88 ; item code 117404; costing £12.50 plus P&P.

I absolutely love this set... which is amazing seeing as I usually do not like butterflies...! Yes I am in that strange 1% minority ..... And it will be even better when I receive my punch!!

The mat pack ( page 91; item code 117395 for £7.50) was essential for easily achieving the pricking on this black & white card
