Case to answer?…

I made this card and fantasy box for the mum of one of my friends and cased one of my own cards, even using the same colour scheme as before because that’s what my friend wanted and I aim to please! … 


I love the way the box turned out.  You can see the other fantasy box I made here.

And this is what the box looks like open:


The designer series paper is so beautiful and looked just stunning when the box was finished.  My friend was really pleased with the matching card and gift box and her mum loved them too!  Win, win!

Cardstock: whisper white, so saffron. certainly celery; Inks: so saffron, chocolate chip; Stamp sets: sincere salutations, schoolbook serif alphabet, schoolbook serif numbers, frames with a flourish (retired); Punches: 1/2″ circle, scallop circle, two-step bird punch; Accessories:  bella bleu dsp (one of my favourites but sadly retired), basic pearls, stampamajig, white gel pen, clear embossing powder, stampin dimensionals, whisper white satin ribbon, paper piercer and mat pack.

Ruby Wedding anniversary…

My sister and her husband celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at the weekend and I wanted to make them a keepsake card to mark the occasion.

Earlier this year, I went to a Stampin’ Up training event in Bicester, run by the lovely Michelle Last, and we learned how to make flip albums.  I thought this would be the perfect thing to make for them.

I enlisted the help of my niece to find some of their wedding photographs.  She had to play “Ace Sleuth Detective” and it took her several weeks as she had to do this all without their knowledge, but she finally managed to find the pics, scan them in and email them to me, just in time for me to complete the album.  Thank you Paula!  I couldn’t have done it without you!  Mwah!

Congratulations Lin and Alan, and sending you much love for your Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

The photographs don’t really do it justice but here goes:
