Yeah Its here!!!!

Am I excited or what? The thing I have been waiting for the last couple of days is finally here and I can now reveal what it is.

My new Stampin' Up! demonstrator's kit. Yes I am now all official. I have toyed with the idea for a few months now since they came to the UK. So I just went for it last week. And here it is. Please check back regular as I know there will be offers and things going on in my area once I have got myself sorted with all the ins and outs. I must get to grips with bloggin too as I am so new to it. By the way if there are any aftershock from the earthquake that happened this morning, it will probably be me jumping with excitement :-)

Good news!!!!!

Well the kids have been off school for this last week due to half term. I haven't been able to get much crafting projects done during this time. But I have received some great news yesterday and I am really, really excited about it. I am going to leave it for a couple more days as I am awaiting a little arrival of something to do with the said secret. Now that should get you guessing or will it?

Altered Valentines present

Well it get more difficult to buy for my hubby on every occasion. But as I am just so loving in altering things I thought about this last night. He loves Whiskey, (although he is suppose to be cutting it out, one little tipple won't hurt). So I have altered a small bottle for him.

I popped in some of those gorgeous Lindt truffles, also his favourites. The celophane bag I bought off Ebay and I have stamped on it using cotton white stazon and I used a swirl stamp from the Priceless SU set.

You can just make it out in the photo. The lable is made using some of the £1.49 stamps to create a border, the love is a rub on and the potion is peeloffs. I left it all to the last minute so had to use what was in my stash. What you can't see is the scalloped boder I created using my corner punch.

This is the tag , which is stamped using my Circle of Friendship stamps from SU. The scallop I cut on my cricut from mini monograms. Then it tied around the top with ribbon, again from SU. I just hope he likes it as its something totally different. I suppose this idea can be used for many occasions.

Belated Birthday

Here is a quick birthday card I have made for a friend. She forgot to let us know it was her birthday, so this is what I have come up with. The butterfly stamp and the tag stamp are from Stampin' Up! Cardstock is Bazzill and Paper is Dovecraft. Brads and gems are from own stash. Off to pop it in the post :-)

SU cards

Gosh I can't believe the week has flown by. I have had a busy one with classes, looking for new premises and sorting out projects plus looking after a sick child (they know how to pick their moments, lol). I thought I should share a couple of the cards I have made. I am making a basket to put cards in for Mothers Day, these are just a couple of cards I have made so far.

These where both made with Stampin Up sets, Priceless and Garden Whimsy. Card used is bazzill and DCWV, embellishments brads and gems. When my batteries are charged I will show the basket that is waiting to be filled.

Nothin' new

I have been so busy making samples and some projects that I forgot to take pictures of them. I did make a basket which I placed some choccies in for craft class, but I forgot to take the pics :( first. I will just have to make another and enjoy eating the chocs as I go. I am now back at scrapbooking class so whe those pages I have planned this morning are done this week I will try and remember to take some photo's to share. I was quite pleased with what I came up with, with the little knowledge I have of the photo's. I did happen to spend some pennies on some new stash but have had to hide it for now. Its for my daughter to do at half term, but its basically an album/papers and ribbons all matching. Will try and do some more bloggin this week and show some creations.
