Elegantly Said Lock & Pop Card


Returning to my Fancy & Fun Fold Friday posts.... with a Lock & Pop card... as shared by Sam at Mixed Up Craft here... another one I love Sam...

A stunner care of the new Elegantly Said suite.... these foiled Elegantly Said Papers are so stunning... and so elegant! I love them! Along with the Stitched So Sweetly die cut frame...

And I know that these cards will be a real hit when I get back to running classes for a living!

This first one was made especially for my son's birthday... 

Though... I couldn't resist adding one of the gorgeous new gold Bumblebee Trinkets which may puzzle him... 

Though actually it is a great good luck symbol for him at present... as many of the attributed symbolisms of a bee make sense in his life at present... such as focus, persistence, harmony, loyalty and industrious (as in busy as a bee)

And don't forget to order your Simply Elegant Kit soon... as actually... it forms the base of a nice Class in the Mail with the cards I have already made... so a bonus for you!

Elegantly Said & New In Colour Club

Back to the lovely new In Colors... with more details about the colours and The Craft Spa In Colour Club... 

Used today along with the new (coming very soon) stunning Elegantly Said stamps (which are also part of a bundle & a suite too)... All of which go live with the new Annual Catalogue tomorrow, 4th May...

And using all 5 In Colors on my card this time... which is something I never usually do... as they are intended to be on trend colours which freshen and update the overall colour range... rather than for using together...

But for once... I think all 5 can work together... as long as you get the proportions  right...

So to the 5 new on trend colours for 2021-2023.... Click here for a short fun video if you like to guess away at colour names...  And apologies if this video doesn't show for you till tomorrow when the new catalogue is live...

OR just see my "one image shows all" below!
Loving all these colours... though no surprises in guessing that my favourite is... yup... Soft Succulent... but which is yours?

Now as I know you are going to want all of them this time round! I'd love you to join my 5 month In Colour Club... Just £25 per month delivered per month (£23 collected). Giving you a co-ordinated pack of one of the colours every month ... so you have it all by the end of the 5 months...


Just email me or use the Paypal Cart below to sign up ...

And keeping to all things In Color... here are a couple of free resources for you to download and print as necessary... 

A Colour Combination Chart... I think you can quickly see how this range freshens up the colour range...

And an In Color Products Summary Sheet... as there are more products in the new In Colors than usual... so you may find this useful... Note that the download actually includes a sheet for the 2020-2022 In Colors... as an extra bonus!

Sneak Peek of the new In Colors & 2 new bundles...

Wow... been a while... sorry for the radio silence... but we had a well needed break... and I never like to publicize the fact that we are on holiday... 

Though I REALLY have to laugh at myself as I type that... as of course we didn't go anywhere (apart from lovely long daily walks out in the Yorkshire countryside!) so it really wouldn't have mattered! Yet more proof that the brain isn't quite back up to speed...

I'll be back with more details very soon... but in the meantime here's a quick card using 2 new products, Elegantly Said and Flowers of Friendship... along with 4 of the 5 new In Colors... 

I did use all 5 but I then covered up the flower centres with the gorgeous Pastel Pearls... as they arrived whilst I was mid flow... and the co-ordination was just too good not to share!

Not long to wait now... as the new catalogue goes live on 4th May... 

And for those of you waiting for a hard copy of the new catalogue from me... these will be going postal tomorrow so you should have them for the weekend...

Monday Memory Keeping...

 

Preserving memories through memory keeping has to be one of the most satisfying ways to feed a creative urge. 

Not only does it let you show love for the important people in your life, but you can also surround beloved photos with your own creative touches—adding an embellishment here, a Designer Series Paper layer there—until you feel that you’ve honoured your lo
ved one and created a work of art at the same time.

I think this Always Together page would be a treasured gift—one to copy, frame, and share with family or friends! 

Add something special to the project by inking up the True Love Designer Series Paper background layers. 

Give the flowers’ rich colour... First, colour the images with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, then add a blush of colour on top using the dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend marker. ~

Add a bit more depth by adhering a Vellum Cardstock layer behind the photo, then make the page pop with a sprinkling of Artistry Blooms Sequins.

And let’s not forget that beautiful “Always” sentiment! Stamp with VersaMark ink on Bumblebee Cardstock and heat emboss using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. 

What can you do with all your boxes of photos gathering dust on the shelf? We challenge you to keep the memories fresh, pull out your papercrafting supplies, and start making a few precious scrapbook pages today. You’ll be glad you did!

Enjoy... Especially those of you that are lucky enough to get some crafty time too!

Wednesday Wings.... Butterfly Brilliance #2


Sharing my other Butterfly Brilliance card... quickly made from the rest of the paper sheet leftover from this card...

Fussy cut butterflies from the sold out Butterfly Bijou papers... though I'll be able to stamp, die cut and colour lots of these butterflies when my bundle arrives...

Fussy cut and So Saffron sponged greeting from the Pretty Perennials bundle...

Oh and finished off with a thin black line above and below the paper piece... care of my fabulous Many Marvellous Markers... though actually you can get the Black Marker on its ownsome!

Oh and a quick futureproofing tip! Love the Pretty Perennials bundle? Make sure you rush to buy now... as this (very sadly) doesn't make it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue! So only available while supplies last...

And... spot the new Stampin' Rewards Host Code....
