Bird Ballad Frame

I want to share something with you today that I made some time ago now, almost as soon as the last annual catalogue came out I think. The Bird Ballad suite was one of my first purchases, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on every single item in the suite, they all just co-ordinate so beautifully together. The stamps are simply gorgeous and the papers…. well, I am lost for words. I love making samplers, and really enjoyed this one, on a canvas frame. The frame itself is 10″ x 8″, to give you an idea of size. Sadly, […]

Spring Wreath…

I know it doesn’t yet feel like spring has sprung but I wanted to make something bright and cheerful so that when the sun is hiding I can look at this and remind myself that brighter days are just around the corner. I have not used any stamps for this project, just two punches are all that you need to make this gorgeous piece of home decor. I have used the medium daisy punch and the leaf punch (both £15), punching out 36 daisies from Whisper White card and about 30 leaves from Pear Pizzazz card. To get colour onto […]

Rest and Relax…

I love making covered notebooks! So often I hear people say that they are sometimes reluctant to give their cards away because they are proud of what they have made.

If this is you, how about making a covered notebook, that way you get to continually look at what you have made, every time you need to write something down. The measurements will depend entirely on the size of your notebook, but […]

Little Ladybird…

At my last workshop I was so lucky to receive a few orders from my customers, so that I managed to bag this cute little stamp set ‘Little Ladybug’. It is a host only stamp set and it is completely FREE with an order over £275, or workshop or party orders over £275. Isn’t it adorable?? I had such a fun time colouring in the little ladybirds, and that flower is so vivid in all three of the colours I coloured it with. I used the Stampin’ Blends to get some amazing shading. The treat bag below is one that […]

Parisian Beauty Desk Calendar

This is a project we made at one of my Friday morning classes, a cute little desk calendar with a post it note block for those essential notes. I used the new Parisian Beauty stamp set and the GORGEOUS Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper. The champagne foiled details are simply stunning, and really show up against the pinks and the blues. To make these, cut a piece of card measuring 28cm by 10.5cm and a piece of card measuring 14cm by 10.5cm. Score the longest piece on the long side at 7cm and 14cm. Cut 2 pieces of the luxurious […]
