Stampin' UP! Spring Extravaganza...

Hello Everyone,

These are the Projects we made at my last Stampin' UP! Extravaganza.
I had the pleasure of two days, one with my Local Ladies and one at the Crafty Bunch Club in Yeovil.

The Topiary Tree were my table decorations, I used a 10cm polystyrene ball and about 44 flowers.  I used 6 BBQ sticks for the trunk.  I wrapped  around some 1/4" strips of pistachio pudding to hold the 6 BBQ sticks together.  Then the whole tree sat in some glittered sand in a vase.

The first Project was this Decorated photo frame and matching gift box using the Spiral Flower die.

The frames were from the Range.  
Everyone one got the Petite Petals stamp set FREE, so it appears on all three projects.

The matching gift box was made using the Envelope Punch Board.

The decorated Belly Band finishes off the box perfectly.

The second project was a Card in a Box and Gift Card Holder.
I used the Polka Dot Pieces stampset.

The sentiments are from Bring on the Cake stamp set.

Lots of punches were needed but very little fussy cutting!

Gift Card Holder

The last project was a set of note cards and a decorated gift box to hold all four and their matching envelopes.

The next extravaganza is on Saturday 18th October and Sunday 26th October.

The Retired Lists are out tomorrow.  So if there is anything you fancy, order it asap as they tend to sell out very quickly.

Gorgeous Grunge

Cor! Its so dark here today.  It's been raining all night.

Well its end of an era today. My youngest son leaves School today.  No more school children at home!
He has all his A Level exams in June and then the wait for results in August.  He hopes to go to Uni at the end of September. So fingers and toes crossed for him.

Thought I would share these cards I made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I used Island Indigo, Tanerine Tango, Smoky Slate and Silver Encore.
Hey! we are getting the reinker for the Silver and Gold Encore pads in the New Catalogue coming in July.

The sentiments are all from Bring on a Cake stamp set.

This image is a single stamp set called Birthday Cake.

The angled tag topper punch was used for the centre's of some of the cards.

I used Basic Grey for the base card for this version with Smoky slate for the next layer.

Silver encore goes very nice with smoky slate, it takes a bit longer to dry though.

A couple of weeks ago when I was doing some gardening, I took this photo of our Apple Tree we brought as a gift for ourselves to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary last year.
It looks more fuller now.

Look we have Apples!

A couple of the leaves have some brown marks on them, so going to see what that could be.  The brick wall does get very hot in the sun.

Sid! decided to push the cushion out of his way yesterday.  I love it when you see his paws curled up. 
I would like to sit in the conservatory some time, but he gets there first!

Betsys Blossom Stamp Class

Catching up with Stamp Class Instructions.  

This was last week's stamp class using the Betsys Blossoms stamp set and soon to retire In colours, Midnight Muse, Gumball green, Summer starfruit and Raspberry ripple.

The Gift box is actually quite big it holds a tube of Dove Hand Cream.
I had a little mad moment last week when I thought that I would use the gift box as my Bloomin Buds Team Gift, Gulp!  Fifteen tubes of Dove Hand Cream at £3 worked out alot, but my Bloomin Buds are worth it.  That's what an Upline is for to spoil her Team.

This is the other version.

Must dash and open the windows as I am cooking a joint of lamb with garlic and rosemary.  
It's elephant garlic and BOY Oh! Boy it is strong.  Not sure if its turned my Sid into a slob - Just look at him!

Don't go thinking that its me putting the cushion that way for him.  He moves all the cushions in our home, ones on the bed, sofa, etc with his nose, flicks them up and moves them into the correct position!

Believe me living in a house full of Boys, I am alway rearranging cushions!
