Kimono Kids Stamp Class.......

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my Kimono Kids Stamp Class. Lots of colouring in today! I used the Poppy Parade In Colour and Black as my colour combination. The Poppy Parade is so striking against the black.

Also in the Instructions is an Origami Box. This sort of box doesn't have any cutting!

Isn't she cute!

Printed Petals Stamp Class......

Spring colours! It was lovely and warm in our garden yesterday and these colours just say Spring to me.

I used a mixture of Stamp Sets this week. Printed Petals, A Good Egg and Occasional Greetings. The wheel is the Petite Petals one. The colour combination is So Saffron, Peach Parfait and Baja Breeze.

The paper is from the Designer paper stacks. These are so useful and they last forever!
My ladies wanted to make A twisted Easel card, so I made a normal one and a smaller square one. They fold flat just like a normal style card, so they fit in the envelopes fine.

On this card, my Chick has had a make over!!!!
You can get three of these from one sheet of cardstock. The chick on this card doesn't have any legs!!!!

There was so much laughing and talking yesterday that I was surprised we managed to get any cards completed.

I do LOVE this JOB! Great Company, Great Friendships - Wonderful Products.

Just Believe Twisted Easel Birthday's.....

Hello Everyone.

March is a very busy month for Birthday's, I had three ladies Birthday's this week from my Tuesday Morning Classes, celebrating their Birthday this Month. I covered them a small Journal as their Gift and made a matching card using the Sweet & Sour Speciality Papers. These are the smaller sized journals and they only need one sheet of 12x12 to cover them.
I used the Broadsheet Alphabet set to do their Monograms and the luxury satin ribbon in Pumpkin Pie.

This was Lesley's - Hope you have a wonderful day on Saturday Lesley. I used the Just Believe stamp set and the Butterfly Prints.

This was Sara's - Hope you have a lovely time with your Mum.

This was Mary's Card, who's Birthday is Tomorrow. Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow Mary and spend your couple of hours putting your feet up, while you can!
I used the Perfect Punches stamp set again to hold the Easel card up. I really have got the miles out of that Set, it is such an all rounder, better still it goes with my beloved punches!

The card lays down flat, and is exactly the same size as a normal card. The front is just scored at an angle from corner to corner. I have been told to do one in class next week!!!! Okey Dokey!

Wedding Sweet Stamp Class.......

Gosh! Its so cold here today, but the sun is OUT! Can you believe it is Friday Again?

These are what I came up with for the Wedding Sweet Stamp class. My friend Karen who's son is getting married this year wanted some ideas for the Wedding Invitations. Her Daughter in Law to be, liked the butterfly stamp so I mixed up the Wedding Sweet Stamp set with the Butterfly Prints stamp set and got these.

Each card has a different use but any one of them could be switched around. All the layers are really simple. Its nice coming up with fancy cards but if you have loads to make you would soon get fed up with them, plus keeping the layers simple means the cost is cut down as well, every penny helps with Weddings.

The large swirl in the Wedding Sweet set is lovely. It has lots of places to add some Bling!

In the Stamp Class we will be making some tiny rosettes as well and I decided to add them to the place settings on the drawer of the box, as a pully. They are so very cute, something to do while watching the rubbish on the Box!

Apart from South Riding! That is.....
You could add the guest name on the part of the box which stands up and fill with a gift or sugared almonds in tissue paper. The elegant eggplant would really pop up on crisp white table cloths wouldn't they.

Well I have a nice ironing pile calling me,

Thanks forl looking,

Good Morning....

I was given this lovely box by Maria, who's been in my downline for nearly Three Years Now. Maria travelled all the way down from Manchester to Come and Play, go to the Stampin UP Regional Event.

We are terrible though aren't we Maria? Once we get in the Craft Room, We just can't seem to get out! Two late nights and lots of laughter, we both had early nights on Sunday!

Thank You so much Maria for the lovely gift (Some New Tea Towels for my new kitchen!) and the Beautiful, Beautiful Box.
