Happy Baby card

This one is a card for a friend of mine who just had a gorgeous little baby boy. I used certainly celery, bashful blue and whisper white card stock. The flowers are from the 'simply said' stamp set and I used the Signo gel pen to highlight the flowers in white. I copied the idea from a lady called Jenni. She has got a lovely blog, it is in German but worth checking out as she always has lots of great ideas.

For this lovely card I used chocolate chip, rose red and old olive card stock. The giraffe is from the 'Wild about you' stamp set. The background flower from 'All wrapped up' is stamped on with Versamark. The button I used is from the new Designer button set 'Playground'. Hope you like it.

More crafty things from the training day.

Here are some more of the things we did at the training day. All projects were made using the new stamp sets from the sale-a-bration catalogue. As you can see, the stamp sets are very versatile and the best of all, you can get it for FREE if you spend more than £45 from the new catalogue or book a workshop. Please contact me if you are interested.

That's it for now.
More crafty things soon.
Love and hugs.

SU training day in Peterborough

Last weekend I went to a SU training day in Peterborough, hosted by the lovely Monica Gale who is one of the best demonstrators in the UK.
We had a lovely day full of stamping and crafting and socialising. One of the things we did was this beautiful photo/scrap album which I wanted to share with you. It was made with the simply scrappin 'sunny day' kit. It's very easy to do, if you interested to do one, please let me know and I can give you the details. Alternatively, if more people are interested, I could offer a scrapbook class one evening or at weekends. Let me know what you think.

Haiti Disaster Relief

From now until 28 February, 2010, you can partner with Stampin' Up! to make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this devastating earthquake.
Stampin' Up! will set aside £1 from the sale of every Greenhouse Gardens stamp set and donate that money to the Red Cross’ International Response Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

The beautiful stamp set 'Greenhouse Gardens' costs £22.95 plus p+p, please contact me if you are interested in buying one.



Sorry I haven't blogged for such a long time.... Life just always seems so busy. It doesn't mean I haven't been doing any crafting though... ;-)

Anyway, it's the time of year again, it's SALE-A-BRATION time! Which means that from 30. December 2009 until 28 February 2010 you can earn FREE stamp sets from the sale-a-bration catalogue with every £45 you spend (net sales before shipping and handling).
Also, if you host a workshop during that time and the net sales of the workshop are £300 or more, you earn one FREE sale-a-bration stamp set in addition to the already generous hostess benefits.

So ladies, what are you waiting for? Call me if you want to book a workshop or place an order.
