A Whole Lot of Love

Pin It
Valentines day is just around the corner & for those of you that happen to have a special someone in your life are panicking thinking "what am I going to get him/her"?  In these financially hard times why show you really love them by creating something yourself.
I was asked to speak at a women's club the other night & they wanted to have a Valentines theme so here are a couple of projects that I came up with.
I just love the new Artisan Embellishment Kit that SU has bought out in the latest mini.  This is fantastic for scrapbooking but I thought I would use some of it to decorate one of our little craft gift boxes.
Look at all the "lovelies" in the Artisan Embellishment Kit


I cut the box in half & made an "extension" using  a Window Sheet.  On the top of the box I have scrunched up a doily which I had stamped with the heart stamp that is covered in little hearts from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set.  The large hearts on the top are also from the same set & are cut out using the matching dies.  The rose on the top is made from the Cherry Cobbler Tulle.
Don't you just love the Flower Trim around the top of the box?  It is so easy to work with - you cut off a single rose or leave it in a strip as I have done.  If you have ever spent hours making flowers, you need to have this!  For just NZ$14.95 you get 1.8m which is aprox 90 flowers.

The hearts have been punched out of our yummy red Glimmer Paper - even when a project has a lace & pearls theme there is always a place for bling!
Don't you just love the Resin Rose over the Love Ticket.  It reminds me of an old ivory necklace that my Grandmother used to have.


Happy Stamping!

Let's Sale-a-Brate!

Pin It
Wow, we have so much to celebrate!  Not only is it Sale-a-Bration (SAB) time, but also the release of the new Seasonal Catalogue.
Some of my goodies from the new catalogue arrived yesterday so I am busy having fun.  There are so many products that I love, but don't take my word for it, click on the catalogue link on the side bar & see for yourself.  If you would like your own copy, email me & I will pop one in the post for you.

I don't have any finished projects to show you yet, but here are couple of cards using my favourite set that you can get for free with any order over $120 during SAB.

This is a card I made with my Stamp Club girls.  Notice the new Honey Comb Embossing Folder in the background?  The elephants were stamped in Island Indigo & cut out & another set were stamped in Pool Party & the ears were cut out to layer over the Island Indigo elephants.  The Island Indigo ribbon is another SAB freebee.  It comes in a pack with 3 rolls of satin ribbon (Island Indigo, Pool Party & Tangerine Tango) & a selection of buttons.

I love the colours on this card.  The base card stork is Tangerine Tango & Rich Razzelberry.  The DSP is  Floral District another one of my favourites.  The "strips" of Tangerine Tango are also from the SAB ribbon & button bundle.

Happy Stamping!
