A sweet new bundle of love …

One of my friends has a new addition to the family … a beautiful little boy called Micah.  He is such a little sweetie!  Catriona visited with him this week and he slept the whole time – bless! 

I made a card for us all to sign …

I stamped the main images in marina mist ink, with the bundle of love stamp set from Stampin Up, and then made my own background paper to mount it on to by stamping with the spiced paisley stamp set from the spring mini catalogue – but it’s only available until Monday 30th April 2012 – so you need to hurry if you want to get yours! 

In cake class, I made a sugar model of a little girl too … well they say little girls are sugar and spice and all things nice!  


Love the little bow on the back of her dress – how cute! 



I know it needs work but it’s not bad for my first attempt … can’t wait to make another … and will definitely work on making the features a little cuter next time!

Perfect spiced paisley pattern…

These are the make and take projects I did at my friend, Ruth’s, craft evening recently.  They’re a variation on the make and takes we made at my upline, Michelle’s, crafting day a little while back.  I loved them so much I just had to share…

I love the spiced paisley stamp set, available in the mini catalogue until the end of April 2012.  This stamp set is such great value at just £20.95 for a set of 7 stamps in wood mount, or £16.95 in clear mount. 

We stamped a random pattern over a piece of 12”x12” whisper white cardstock, and then with a little cutting and scoring, made a box and cards from it.  We stamped on the envelopes to make a complete matching set. And nothing went to waste – we even made a matching bookmark from the offcuts. 

Everyone did really well and were very proud of what they produced as they had taken a blank piece of card and turned it into something so pretty with just a little stamping, cutting and scoring. 

That’s what I love so much about Stampin’ Up!  Their products are so fabulous that they make it so easy to produce such great, professional results!  Thank you Stampin Up!
