Thank You Card - Share What You Love Suite from Stampin' Up!

I know I've said this before, but I really do love the 'Share What You Love' Suite in the new catalogue! This card is a mix of old, current and new - the old is the card base which is from this year's Sale-a-bration, the current is some Lemon Lime Twist card and ink and Berry Burst ink, and the new are the stamps and accessories from the Share What You Love suite. I love how this one came together :)

Not long to go to the new catalogue, have you got your copy yet? Let me know if you'd like one - drop me an email at, or send me a message at and I'll get one sorted for you :) My wishlist is ridiculously long, there's so much lovely stuff in it!

Thanks for visiting!

Global Design Project #139 - Just A Note Card using the Soft Sayings Card Kit

Just a very quick blog post from me today, like everyone else in the UK I've been spending every spare minute outside in the sunshine! 

I needed a quick card to send to a friend, and was struggling for inspiration, so I decided to play along with this week's Global Design Project challenge. GDP#139 is a theme challenge based on 'Just a note to say...', and it immediately made me think of the 'Just a note' stamp in the Soft Sayings Card Kit, so I decided to use that kit as the base for my card. I added some Berry Burst ribbon, sequins and a mini binder clip, and Lemon Lime Twist sequins. 

I'm really happy that this kit is carrying over to the new catalogue, I'll definitely be getting a refill! Don't forget that the new catalogue starts next Friday 1st June. If you haven't got a copy yet but you'd like one, drop me an email, or send me a message at and I'll get one sorted for you :)

Thanks for visiting!

Jems Blog Hop - Sad To See You Go & So Glad You're Staying

The Jems are blog hopping again! This month we've been looking at all the lovely products that we'll be really sorry to lose when the current catalogues end on 31st May, but that made us all far too sad, so we decided to celebrate all of the lovely products that will be carrying over into the new catalogue as well! I've made two projects for the hop, one with the retiring stamp set 'Oh Happy Day' and one with the carrying over stamp set 'Beautiful Day'.

The next blog on the hop is the lovely Sarah, pop on over to see what she's been creating lately!

Brand New 'Share What You Love' Suite from Stampin' Up!

There's something so satisfying about opening a brand new stamp set, the possibilities seem so endless, but then sometimes it's a bit overwhelming trying to decide what to make first! I was in need of a couple of thank you cards, so I let that be my guide for my first play with the new Share What You Love Suite, which Stampin' Up! have released ahead of the new catalogue launch. This set is so versatile, I think it's going to be one of my go to sets for the next catalogue year.

I've also used one of the new in colours. Grapefruit Grove, on this card. I'm not normally a fan of orange, but this is such a lovely shade and it goes really well with Old Olive, which is my absolute favourite green.

I'm really pleased with this card, I hope the recipient likes it too!
