Hi Folks,

Another beautiful day!!!

Doesn’t everything just look and feel so different when the sun is out. And it’s the weekend, so everything is wonderful 🙂

Anyhow, down to the business at hand.

Easy Peasy Double Slider Card:

Hi Folks,

It’s great to be back to my blog. It’s taken quite a time working with Microsoft Technical Support to resolve Malware issues on my PC. Fingers crossed, that’s all now sorted.

Anyhow, I thought I would share with you this fab card mechanism that I was shown about a year ago by my lovely Upline Clare McDonnell. I’ve actually made the card a little smaller than the original and my weekly classmates love it. I hope you like it.

Check out the video and full details below.

You can of course create your own design by using different cardstock and colours however if you do wish to copy mine, and you don’t already have these products, you need to check out my online shop ASAP as these products are retiring 2nd June.

For my customers with current S.U Catalogue, please remember that the catalogue retires on 2nd June, 2015 and not end of June.

The current Seasonal Catalogue also retires on that date.

So get shopping for those gorgeous Retiring items that you’ve just ‘got to have’ and enjoy the discounts too!!! 🙂

Something Lacy: – Going to the Chapel !!!

Something Lacy: – Going to the Chapel !!!

Hi Folks,

I recently made this beautiful card and gift box for one of my lovely team when she promoted to a higher level. (so proud!!)    🙂

As I was so delighted with it, I thought I would share it quickly with you. I should point out however that design credit for this card goes to Andrea Tracey-Tucker .


The Background Stamp is Something Lacy from the current Stampin’ Up! current Spring/Summer catalogue, in a section aptly titled; Going to the Chapel.

There are loads!!! of lovely ideas for weddings, to add a touch of charm; give them that ‘something old’ look and to dress up tags and cards with beautiful accents. You must check it out!!!

Also from the same catalogue is the hugely popular Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. 

And I again picked up on some old favourites of mine; the Chalk Talk stamp set, Chalk Talk Framelit Dies and the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and Bitty Banners Framelit Dies. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!

I hope you like it. Don’t forget to drop me a comment and if you’ve any queries, I would be happy to help. 🙂
