Love is all around!

Sorry! I couldn't resist a bit of Marti on Valentine's Day! Here are the gifts I made for Len. Again the light was poor but I hope you like them as much as Len did. He says "The photos don't do them justice Babe!" The colours do look a bit washed out don't they? I got the idea for the cascade card from Julie Kettlewell, a Stampin Up! demonstrator.

Spice Cake Card

If you have just arrived be warned I have posted 10 more posts today...don't forget to check them out. There is a huge range of things and two distinctive styles. Which is your favourite?
The light has gone, so this card is even worse than the previous set, but hopefully you will get the idea.

Spice Cake Circle Bag and Matching Note Cards

The light is fading fast so the photo quality is not as good as in 'real life'!

Simply Adorned Jewellery

I wasn't to sure about this in the Mini calalogue when I first saw it but having seen lots of lovely ideas on the web I realised the possibilities are endless. This was my first attempt using my current favourites Everyday Enchantment DSP and Pool Party.

Hello Friend Stamp Set

Here are two cards made from a new stamp set found in the new Spring Mini Catalogue. I got the idea for these from Julie Kettlewell, a fellow demonstrator. What do you think? The Lucky Limeade/Concorde Crush was her colour combination the Calypso Coral/Lucky Limeade mine.

The easiest card ever!

Yet more from my free pack of Everyday Enchantment DSP! Love, love, love the colour combination - Pool Party and Calypso Coral!

This one is pool Party with Lucky Limeade:-

Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper Mini Book and Note Pad

I thought this paper looked too vintage for my taste but the new colours - Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade give it a bit of zing! I started by making a mini book with 8 Stampin Up! Whisper White envelopes and covered it with the papers.

This is the note book cover:-
This is the front of the mini album.

Each page has an insert that can be removed using the tab on the side

The next few images show the reverse side of the book.

I then made a pizza box with matching 3x3 note cards.

Remember these lovely, versatile papers are free with a £45 order.

Elementary Elegance Stamp Set

I got this idea from Stampin Up! Simple 3x3 cards complete with white embossing. To be honest they were not as easy as they look!

The top card is made with Melon Mambo; whilst the bottom uses the new Lucky Limeade. The greeting was punched out with the curly label punch.
