Turtle Card

I’m really upset that this suite is retiring too soon and wish I had bought it earlier, so I could have brought you more projects with it. For this card I didn’t want add too much or it would detract from the lovely paper and unfortunately the photo doesn’t show you the turtles and sequins in their sparkly glory 😀

Scrap of Basic White for the turtles

Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Stamp the turtles and fussy cut them.

Blend the ink using Wink of Stella.

Tip 1: As these are photopolymer stamps you should use a mat under your cardstock to get a clear impression

Tip 2: Put a little liquid glue onto your silicone mat and pick up the sequins with the putty part of the Take Your Pick Tool to dip them in the glue.

We also have available for a limited time The Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin kit

These products are available whilst stocks last, but if you miss out, fear not we have some great new products coming when the new catalogue goes live on the 4th May. Check out my shop for all the retiring offers.

We also have a great new joining offer when the catalogue goes live, but I will explain more about that another time.

Until next time, happy crafting

Monochrome Snail Card

This was a birthday card for my eldest son. For most people I would have added a bit of colour and taken the opportunity to get my Stampin’ Blends out, but this suited Xander much more. I couldn’t leave it completely plain, so added a little bling with the sparkly ribbon and the embellishments. `

I put some Tear & Tape on the card and peeled one end off and attached the ribbon to keep it straight

I am very upset that this set has not been carried over into the new annual catalogue as I think it is so cute. Loving the toadstool stamp.

Until next time, happy crafting

Dorset Scrapbook Page

This is my second attempt at a scrapbook page. The photos are from when I took my youngest two children on holiday to visit my parents. I rarely remember to take photos and when I do I don’t print them off, so I wanted to do something that would preserve the memories. You may have noticed that I made a slight error and put the S the wrong way round 😆
