Let's Go Floral!

Sunday, 5 July 2015
Hello friends
Bright white with a splash of colour today.
This is my monthly Ambassador project for Spellbinders and this card went live
on their blog this week's like buses, not many projects and then loads all at once!
My card features Triple Floral and Sapphire dies - Mini Floral Set Three. 
If you hop over to the Spellbinders blog I've done a step by step tutorial,
you will see that every piece of this card is white cardstock, the leaves and flower is inked.
Talking of flowers...confession time!
The real flowers shown in the photograph, where did they come from??
Yes Mum I snipped that from one of your plants in the garden,
bet you hadn't noticed though...
And I still haven't photographed my clematis chair!
It's on my to-do list now - no escaping that list!
Take care friends.

A Layered Tag

Saturday, 4 July 2015
Hello friends
If you visit Facebook you will have already seen this tag,
it appeared this week on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog
If you hop over to their bog you can see a full step by step tutorial,
also have a browse while you are there, lots of projects and my online shop stocks
nearly all their sticky products - I'm one of their few outlets in the UK.
I actually haven't made many tags recently...what's going on??
I intend to put that right :)
I really enjoyed putting this one together using Photo Corners - Kraft,
Enjoy your Saturday - are you crafting?
Take care friends.

Friday Die Day

Friday, 3 July 2015
Hello friends

It's Friday and that means...Friday Die Day!
This week I am featuring Spellbinders Lace and Frills.
This is a solid inset die and a handy square border die.

The approximate measurements are:
Inset: 5⅜”
Border: 5⅞”

This is how it looks cut/embossed.
The emboss is a beautiful design, I've chosen to cut down to a smaller size
keeping the pattern central.  Matted onto jade cardstock.
I then cut various leaves from Romantic Blooms One.
Back on my card front attached some enamel dots.
Began to position some leaves.
Stamped a sentiment onto white card and attached across.
(Stamp is my fav ...Lawn Fawn - Scripty Sayings)
Close up pic - a very simple card, I didn't want to detract too much from the
beautiful background.
Lace and Frills is available on the website here and also
Don't forget to check out all the new dies on the website
and don't forget I offer a Spellbinders ordering service, any dies you are looking for
I can normally have in stock within a week, just drop me a message.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, I'm not travelling this weekend,
I'm planning on lots of craft and Bella walking.
Take care friends.

Fast selling!

Thursday, 2 July 2015
Hello friends

Again, this month's kit is a sell out! 

Thank you so much to those who purchased, they all went out yesterday so
they should be landing on doormats very soon.
I'm already thinking about August's...!

So are you melting?  

Yesterday's weather was hot hot hot - up to 34 degrees here in the South East,
Gravesend is a little hot spot - honestly I crave Winter,
I'm not a lover of Summer.

Bella is finding cool places to lay down and the cats are foolishly sunbathing!

Yesterday Spellbinders released a video with a sneak peek of the new
Platinum machine.  The dates I've received so far is that it should reach the UK
late August/early September.  I'm afraid I do not know about price just yet.

Please take a look at the video....
Cuts up to 8 layers in a single pass!
Cuts over 40 different materials!
And much more...
Really excited about this machine and I will pass on any more information
the minute I have it.

Please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.
Take care friends.

Hello friends

Well it's a definite heatwave here in the South East,
I'm thankful my craft cabin is mostly in the shade.

That dinner I mentioned on Sunday evening prepared by Mitchell and his girlfriend...
I was massively impressed.  Mitchell really enjoys cooking so much so
he an interview next week to see if he can enroll on a Professional Cookery course,
he hopes to do this alongside his regular job.
My dream of a craft cafe/restaurant may happen...!

I hit the ground running this week with work and I'm pleased to report
that July's Charity Kit is prepared and ready to announce tomorrow.
In between here's a little sneak peek!

Please stop by tomorrow for all the details.
Now today before the sun reaches roast I have to do some ironing...groan!
And I will take some photos of my clematis chair - it's really growing :)

Take care friends.
