Global Design Project #030

Another week another challenge over at the Global Design Project.

Again this week…like I did the other week, I am getting this card to do double duty! Another win-win!

As soon as I saw the sketch for this weeks challenge I knew that I was going to use it to make a card for a very special little nephew of mine who has just had his 1st birthday. Yippee!!! 1st birthdays are the best, don't you think?!

I really love the colour combination and tried to make it a fun card by adding some texture with the candy dots, twine and a fun fringe. 
I hope he likes it!

I hope to join in again next week over at the Global Design Project and I hope you can join me!

Until next week!

Global Design Project #028

Here we go again…it's time for another Global Design Project challenge, and this one is number 28. This is only the second time that I have participated, but I certainly do love taking part!

I used the opportunity to make my card do 'double duty', being that it would be a birthday card for my lovely mum (whose birthday this year falls on Easter Saturday) and be my entry into this weeks challenge over at the Global Design Project. Win-win I say!!!

So here it is…

I must admit that I did actually find this challenge quite…well…challenging. But overall I am happy with the result, and I hope my mum is too

I have used Stampin' Up! "Cottage Greetings" stamp set
and the "Pretty Petals" DSP stack, such a lovely combo in my book.

Have a great weekend!

Stampin' Up! fun….

Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite creations from the last 12 months.

I must admit I had a ball making each and every one of them, and I always look forward to making more and more.

And I especially enjoy pushing myself to get the most our of my Stampin' Up products. 

They really are so very versatile and easy to use. Which makes it so very easy to make beautiful paper pieces which you can share with your friends and family.
A sweet little card for a special niece and god-daughter using the Sale-a-Bration stamp set "Honeycomb Happiness"

A pretty card with some water colouring using the "Birthday Blooms" stamp set

So here is my very first entry…

I have made use of a few of the Sale-a-Bration items:

Honeycomb Happiness : SALE-A-BRATION 2016

Well it's that time of year again…the best time in the Stampin' Up! calendar to pick yourself up a freebie! 

Yep, that's right…for every $90 you spend you get to select a freebie from a gorgeous range of stamp sets and accessories. So if you place a $90 order you get one freebie, but if you place a $180 order you get two freebies…and so on.

So if you have been thinking about placing a Stampin' Up! order, please contact me before the end of March so you can take advantage of this awesome offer!

And while I'm chatting about the gorgeousness of the stamp sets in Sale-a-Bration, I thought that I had better share with you one of my cards I made with the very cute "Honeycomb Happiness" stamp set.

I must admit, that when I first laid eyes on the new SAB brochure this stamp set was at the top of my list, and I hope you can see why!

Contact me to place your order today!
