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. 🙂

Vivid Vases – Coastal Cabana


Good Afternoon All,

Not such a nice day here this afternoon. How is it with you?

GIVEAWAY on Sunday 14th September.

As a Thank You to those who have chosen to follow my blog this week, I will have a GIVEAWAY on Sunday 14th September.

This will be one of my handmade Greetings Cards and some fab Stampin’ Up! (c) product.

So don’t forget to [ FOLLOW ] me before you leave today.

Winner will be notified on Sunday by email.


As you have no doubt guessed, Vivid Vases is the Feature Stamp this month and I just love it!

I had a play around with it earlier this morning and thought I would go for ‘less is more’ this time. What do you think?

I haven’t put any colour on the flowers as I quite like the clean look of the line art however I did glitz it up a bit with my favourite Crystal Effects.

I’ve attached a quick brief if you would like detail on dimensions and products.

Good Afternoon All,

What a time I’ve had of it today. Technology (in particular my laptop and all matters connected to it) is conspiring to drive me insane!  Hopefully I will get it all resolved in the next few days and I will be able to post more regularly without constant technical issues.

The gorgeous little Vivid Vases Stamp is surprisingly versatile. I’ve only recently started using it and featured it at a recent Project Class and this was a hit with my class members.

The project featured today is a little card that I had noticed on Pinterest so credit for this clever little design goes to Heidi Baks.

I hope you like it. Do leave me some feedback or questions.

I’ve attached a quick brief for reference.
