Mixed Bunch

Happy Saturday to you ! 

Hope you are all well and making the most of the miserable weather to get crafting. I've got so many 'new toys' from the Summer Mini catalogue I don't know what to play with first !

Have you taken a look at the new goodies available ? If not I've added a link to the right so take a peep. Also did you know that Stampin Up have got a new Starter Kit. The price is now only £99 and you can choose your own goodies to the value of £130 and you get some business basics worth £45 !!! Bargain ! If that wasn't enough then anyone who joins in May gets a free registration to the European Stampin Up Convention in Germany (worth £149). You would just need to arrange your travel and  accommodation. If you're interested please email me on and we can arrange an informal natter to answer any questions you might have.

Back to the cards- Todays colour combination is Pool Party and Basic Gray, love it !
This was a gatefold card and very difficult to photograph. The flower is made using the new punch and I have used the coordinating Mixed Bunch set to decorate the inside.

Love the texture from the Manhattan Flower embossing folder

This one uses the Sail Away A La carte stamp set with some new products, white Bakers twine and paper from the Twitterpated set. These are lovely papers because there are some very pretty, floral ones but also some more masculine patterns and some that would make perfect backgrounds to stamp onto.

The paper is another one from this pack and this time I have cut the stamped flower to turn it into a pretty butterfly. Also see the new scalloped edge ?That's done with the very useful Edgelits, think I will be using these a lot lol !


I also used the Petal cone die to make this triangular shaped box. Hope you like and enjoy the Bank Holiday whatever you are up to !
