{Grateful bunch sneak peak}

We're gearing up for Christmas now with the children off school, presents wrapped... well not all of them, I end up sending a few that arrive as New Year gifts.  As a family we'll be co-ordinating a community meal at our church for anyone that would like to join us, so this morning I've been finding pots and tea towels ready for tomorrow.  I have three, yes three turkeys in my fridge and lots of other yummy goodies.

I've been enjoying having a little play with some of the new products from the 2016 Spring/Summer catalogue.   If you haven't got one and would like one, please contact me!

It was a friend's birthday so I made a quick card with a new stamp set and co-ordinating flower punch.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp set! It;s so useful for filling in blank spaces, or mock colouring in or just playing with it to create pattern. It is available with 20% off until Friday!  So that means only £17.60 on wood mount or £14.40 for clear mount.

Here is a montage of different cards etc using it.


And here is a card with a video using Gorgeous Grunge and a lovely Christmas set called All Ye Faithful that is available in the seasonal catalogue (until stocks last).  I also show you how to use the Stampamajig.

{Gift Bag topper and BYO craft day}

Hi there stampers and crafters, stampers that craft and crafters that stamp...hehehe just realised that there are so many different creative types out there!

Anyway, I made some little thank you bags for customers recently.


Here is the video of how I made them


Last Saturday was spent with some lovely ladies of varied ages at my BYO craft day.
They got to play with 99% of my Stampin' Up! stash.  A great opportunity to try before you buy and to be surrounded by inspiration and encouragement.

Here a couple of pics from the day...

{Paper flower from circles}

Hi there!
Sorry I've not posted for a few days, last week was half term holiday.  The first part of the week was spent getting ready for the last part!  We headed to London on the Thursday and stayed with my sister  Helen and her family.  Friday was spent packing biscuits Helen had decorated then setting the church hall up for Helen and Chris' 15 yr wedding anniversary and their 10 year being at St John's Wood Road Baptist Church (Chris is the Pastor there).

I had offered to create some decorations for the tables so made these huge roses out of serviettes, and some smaller ones from the spiral flower die.



Helen bought these yummy heart shaped ginger bread biscuits from a fabulous shop called Tiger, living in rural Wales we miss out on some interesting shops.  I managed to pick up a few little Christmas presents!  Anyway, she had been inspired by some pictures on Pinterest, so she piped with blue icing.  The theme was white, silver and blue, the same colours she had for her wedding.  I designed some tags using Picmonkey, printed, cut and punched the with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.


As a way for people to write some personal message to the couple I cut up some shapes and punched holes in them so they could be strung up afterwards.  There was also a box of silver butterfly and flower punchie for people to decorate their messages.


Then for something extra special I made this paper flower frame to be used as a photo prop

Here is a little video showing it...

And here are some pictures of it in use...

Helen still fits in her wedding dress...just!

Me and my daddy, you can see who I got the eyebrows from!

And finally, here is a smaller version of the flowers on the frame with a bit of extra stamping.

{Let it snow!}

Got lots to share today!  Been playing with the Snow Place stamp set, made some cards and some tags, but they look very different from each other.  The stamps are photopolymer, so make it very easy to align to create lots of different looking snowmen and penguins.



Here are some tags using Basic Black, Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Cherry Cobbler


and a quick video


Then these cards were stamped using Night of Navy, Lost Lagoon and Mint Macaron


and if you would like to here my Saturday Ramble while I stamp them, have a look at this video
