Forever Fern Stripe Card

Forever Fern Stripe

It’s been a very chilled day, I have crafted, listened to music and sung along to  a mix of  modern country, Blondie, Kirsty MacColl, The Beautiful South, The Moody Blues and Suzanne Vega amongst others.

Loving this stamp set it has such great detail and of course the fact that the papers are a mixture of greens makes me very happy 😃

I definitely think this will become a firm favourite. The suite contains so many great elements for changing things up.

Today’s project from the Pinkies Weekend Retreat was a beautiful box card made with the Prized Peony Suite and designed by Kim Price. You can find her over at http://www.handmadebykim.co.uk/

When I first saw this project I thought there is no way I can make that, but Kim made it really easy and I was so pleased with how it turned out 😃

Until next time, happy crafting

We recently did a team Party with Deb’s Upline Sam (Pootles), where she used this stamp set. I didn’t have it at the time, but I fell in love with it. This was the stamp set that was included in the bags for the ladies for our Catalogue Launch Party.  This was my project that they made with it.

Small Ornate Garden Box

The foil paper in this Suite is so lovely, I wanted to do something that showed it off and didn’t cover it. I kept to a simple little Whisper White box, but used gold foil to accent it. I am really please with how this turned out, especially as everything I touched today was going wrong 😆 I think it would make a very lovely wedding favour.
