Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Geared Up Garage

Every 6 weeks or so, I design a project for Card & Cuppa that is more suited to men. For this one, I reached for the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set. Normally for male cards, there is a lot of blues, greens and Crumb Cake used. I opted for a slightly brighter palette. This combination

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – A generic Birthday card

I’ll often ask the attendees to suggest cards they would like to make at Card & Cuppa sessions. A recent suggestion was a generic Birthday card, something suitable for both male and female. This project is a combination of this card and this one. It’s a great idea to combine elements of projects you have

Welcome to my Stampin’ Up! Team

I’ve recently welcomed a new team member to my Stampin’ Up! Team – The Lilypad Crafters. Obviously being a crafting team, my new team member needed a handmade card. As I was creating several cards for different occasions, I used the same design as this project, with a few tweaks. Don’t be afraid to use

Thinking of you for a friend

A friend is going through a tough time, so I wanted them to know that I was thinking of them. They are a fan of pink and sparkly things, so I designed this card using the more muted Petal Pink, along with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. This soft combination still uses the things they

A pair of pink and purple Birthday Cards

I made this pair of pink and purple Birthday cards for two lovely ladies. One lady likes pink, the other purple, so I made the same design in different colours. It also helps that the ladies won’t see each other! The purple design uses Highland Heather and Purple Posy, the pink one uses Blushing Bride

A Dino Days Birthday Card

Yesterday, one of my ‘honorary’ nephews turned 5. I just knew I had to make him a Dino Days Birthday Card. This Bundle is perfect for children (of all ages!) and I love using the Brights colour family with it. For this project, it’s a combination of Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Christmas Gleaming Bundle

Last week was the start of my evening Christmas Card Classes, so I decided that the Card & Cuppa attendees shouldn’t miss out. Also, as it was Half-Term, I held a Card & Cuppa for Children Class. Rather than designing a separate project for them, I chose to use the same project for all of

Saying Farewell to the Rocky Horror Tour

Last weekend I said farewell to the Rocky Horror Tour. It has been touring the UK since December last year, and I’ve watched it at some of the venues it has visited. Although the tour finishes today, last week was my final visit and was my opportunity to hand out the cards I’d made to
