Birthday Memories Suite

How cute is this??


Birthday Memories is one of the new suites in the catalogue and for me it brings get memories of childhood, and I can imagine a children's party using this suite in it's entirety.  From party invitations to goodies bags!



It has a bundle of stamps and dies - yes saving you money,The The paper is just adorable  and it gets even better because the dies can by used to cut some of the matching Designer Series Paper!  How amazing is that?


The paper is itself is adorable and comes in 12 different designs! 
The rest of the suite also have matching ribbons as well as cute embellishments!


I'd love to hear your views and if you'd like to order please head over to my online shop.


Happy Crafting

Need a planner- check out the new one from Stampin' Up!

I LOVE a paper planner. I am hopeless at working of devices so always like to have a planner/diary on me.  And when I saw the new Stampin' Up! catalogue and realised that there was a planner in there I couldn't wait to order it!



It is scrumptious!  And you can get refills!

Check out this video from Stampin' Up! to get an idea of it and don't forget to head over to my shop if you'd like to order one!

Global Stamping Friends - Hello New Friends


It has arrived!  Yes for all those waiting the new 2017/18 Stampin' Up! catalogue is now live.

We've decided to show you some of new products on this hop, but there are lots more in the new catalogue so don't forget to take a look!

I've decided to show the new Ronald McDonald House stamp,  Sharing Sweet Thoughts.  I was very lucky to receive this yesterday as I am part of a 10,000 card Birthday Wishes Challenge here in the UK. This is where over 3 days the aim is to make 10,000 birthday cards for the Ronald McDonald Houses- luckily I'm not doing it by myself!  This is also a great set as SU donate a proportion of each sale to the RMHC in each country. Plus it's cute and yes does match the Jar framelits!







So on to the cards.


Above is selection of cards I made, sometimes I just like to play around with stamp sets to see what happens.  There is no right or wrong to crafting and sometimes you just need to give it a go.  The Happy Birthday is also from another new set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, isn't it fabulous?




At the moment my favourite is this one - clean and simple and can be used for both feminine and male cards- always a bonus!


I hope you've enjoyed seeing my projects and please hop along to see what other goodies the new catalogue has in store for you by using the next button to hop along to Rachel's blog to see her lovely project.

Global Stamping Friends Bloghop 9: So Sorry You're Leaving



Another bloghop from a wonderful group of Stampin'Up! lovers. Yes, I'm sure the others in the hop will agree we LOVE Stampin' Up! From their fantastic products, wonderful customer service to their events for demonstrators!

This time of year however, is bittersweet for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator as we are farwelling products we have fallen in love with, some have been like old friends, there forever, others newer friends BUT we also know that just around the corner is lots of new friends! Yes the new 2017/18 catalogue goes live 1st June, and yes as a demo I've had a chance to order some newbies already, and yes new friends are being made swiftly!!

Anyway on to today's card made with retiring products where we can send our friends off in style.


 
 

I loved this stamp set when I first saw it, even the name Love Sparkles.  From the font to the sentiments to the little stars , it was a wonderful versatile set.  I also loved the Star Framelits, all the different sizes, and as for the ribbon, I have to say I am a little bit devastated! But I know I'll soon find a new favourite and I'm sure you will too!





Guess you also can't have a leaving party without farewelling the outgoing In-colours. They however weren't a shock as we know when they arrived that their time with us would be limited; still going to miss them though. I've used Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder in this card today and love them together.

I hope you've enjoyed my project and please hop along to see everyone else's fond farewell to some favourite friends.

Global Stamping Friends - Bloghop 8 My Favouite Bundle

 
Well it must be that time of the month- The Global Stamping Friends Bloghop, and would you believe this is the 8th one!

We have lots of regulars as well as a few new people participating, so I am sure you'll get to see some wonderful creations.  Fingers crossed that it goes to plan, but bear with us if there are any glitches, as a number of the participants are at an event called OnStage.  This is a wonderful event where Stampin' Up! Demonstrators get to learn about new products, get business tips and have a great time in general.  The April one is pretty big as they get to see the New Annual Catalogue!! Yes some people already have it in their hot hands, and Yes I am a little envious, but as a demonstrator I'll get to see it soon!  Exciting times.....

But, there is still lots of time to enjoy the current Annual Catalogue and the Spring/Summer Catalogue so there's no rush and we want to focus on the amazing products that you can buy!

Stampin' Up! do great bundles and the best thing of all - they come with a discount!  They also have lots of stamps sets that match punches or dies but this bloghop is all about the bundles!

My favourite bundle has to be....Swirly Bird Photopolymer bundle.  I have to be honest when I first saw it I only bought the dies, thinking I wouldn't use the stamps. Well, how wrong I was!  I then went and bought the dies - but missed getting the bundle discount!



This set has endless possibilities and here a only a few....





I love the fact that you can use the cutout middle from one of the dies to look like a Koru (for those that don't know I'm a kiwi far from home and this makes me a little bit, well a lot, homesick!)



And I love the swirls!  Dies and stamps - what more could you want in a bundle? The only thing missing - a sentiment, but I'm sure everyone has one of those sitting around!




And there's even more male orientated card, something that always seems harder to do than female focused ones.  This card had a both die cutting and stamping and I love the waves.

 


I hope you enjoy the bloghop and don't forget to hop along to see other favourite bundles, you can use the arrows below to move forward and backwards.  If you're able please leave comments and we love to know what viewers think.
