Watercolor Wishes Card Kit:

Annual15_p080_a watercolor wishes

Just when I thought I’d found my favourite Stampin’ Up! card kit, another gorgeous one comes along!!!

I’ve had such fun with this kit. It makes 20 beautiful cards, covering a range of occasions and the best bit is, each card is different. No two cards are the same. Absolutely everything you will require to make your gorgeous card collection is supplied in a beautiful gift box. You could happily present this set as a gift to friends and family, even if they aren’t crafters, as the stamp set, block, ink spots and embellishments are all supplied. AND!!! the stamps are included in the price! It’s an absolute bargain. Or, make up the cards and present them as a gift set. I have to say the stamp sentiments are really lovely and in such beautiful fonts. There is everything to LOVE about this kit. Now ….. the only warning I would give is …… if you are planning to gift this kit, you will definitely need to buy one for yourself, otherwise you won’t be able to part with it. Yes, it’s that gorgeous!!! Stampin’ Up! have done us proud with this years’ kits, without a doubt.

Below are some quick pics of the kit as I’ve made it up for my Craic & Crafting Classmates this week. I should point out that I’ve added a couple of bits and pieces to some of the cards simply to illustrate that you could use some of your existing Stampin’ Up! craft stash to compliment the kit …. however …. this is not strictly necessary, as the kit in itself is gorgeously complete. I’ve added a link directly to Craft Shopping Heaven for you to make it easier for you to get your hands on this ‘must have’ kit.

Oh and here are some quick pics of some of the Thank You gifts I’m making for this project class. 🙂 They are tiny little fridge magnets. Aren’t they cute!!! And each one will have the recipients initial tied with Natural Thread.

Summer Silhouettes: That Chocolate Box look.

Hi Folks.

Another quick card (well, for me, it’s quicker than the cards that I would normally do) 😉

I’ve only just purchased this stamp set and this is my first play with it. And of course, I’ve fallen in love with it and this colour combination is probably my favourite. It’s soooooo easy to create a beautiful stamped image so you’ve got to get this if you don’t have it already. What do you think of it?


Serene Silhouettes, for that chocolate box look.

Quick and Easy Cards: May 2015 Thank You Cards

Hi Folks,

Just a wee quickie. Here is a pic of my May, Customer Thank You cards. Design credit for this card must go to Papercraft Ideas. I noticed this card on Facebook and just loved everything about it. So other than changing the Sentiment, it’s basically 100% cased. You can’t improve on perfection 🙂

I think my customers will like it. ❤

A Great Big Thanks!!!

Oh, and a quick question. Could I ask those who ‘follow’ my blog to advise me if they are able to view my blog videos on their phone. I have a sneaking suspicion that I have an issue with that for some reason as I’m unable to view/open my last 2 blog videos on my phone. I would really appreciate it if you could let me know one way or other. 🙂

Until next time
