Shaker card with pop-up inside for a special 50th birthday …

Hi and welcome to my blog. It was my best friend’s birthday last week, and a special one at that. So, for a very special lady I needed something very special – I hope she liked this shaker card with a surprise pop-up inside …

I loved the shaker element of the card – all those sparkly sequins…

Glittery stars were attached to the outside of the acetate too …

The champagne glimmer paper added lots of glitz and glamour …

Stampin’ Up! Love you to the moon (and back) …

Hello world. Wow, how I have missed being here in my happy place! I’m so sorry for my long absence … I’ve not lost my crafting bug – just picked up a nasty bug over Christmas and have been poorly ever since.   I’m still waiting on some test results, but I’m feeling much better and am hopefully now on the mend. 

I does mean that I’ve not been able to craft for such a long time, and I’ve totally been missing my crafting therapy.  But I managed a little crafting last weekend, so I’m very happy to be able to share the card I made for my daughter who had some amazing news last week …

Love you to the moon heart framelit

I used some of my new crafting goodies from the brand new Stampin’ Up spring/summer mini catalogue, available 28 January to 30 June 2014 and launched today, coinciding with the amazing annual Stampin’ Up sale-a-bration too – you can browse both catalogues by clicking the buttons in my sidebar. 

Love you to the moon washi tape

I was so excited to see the new Love you to the Moon stamp set in the mini, as this is what my daughter and I say to each other all the time.  So of course it was top of my (huge) wish list, and I love it!  And the gold sequins and washi tape are gorgeous too! Love lots!  

Love you to the moon

What better way to show my daughter how very proud I am of her, and just how much I love her, than to send her a handmade card …

The inside …

Love you to the moon and back

I can’t tell you how happy it feels to get back to crafting.  This Happy video by Pharrell Williams, featuring the Minions, sums up just how I feel (just like that childhood song – if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands).  

Hope you have a great week too – turn up your speakers and enjoy the video …

Here’s what I used to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: naturals white, real red, woodgrain natural composition speciality; stamp sets: love you to the moon; inks: early espresso; punches: small heart; accessories: heart framelits, expressions thinlits, timeless type alphasbet sizzlits (retired), bigshot, adhesive pearls, gold sequin trim, gold watercolour wonder designer washi tape, tombo multi-purpose glue.
