Julie's Jems Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to our Jems Blog Hop for the Spring/Summer and Sale-A-Bration projects!! You should be joining my blog from the lovely Emma's blog. I am Emma's Great Grandma - can you believe that?

So I am happy to share my special project with you today using lots of new items from the Spring/Summer catalogue. We made this card at our Tuesday Club this week and its one of those ones I don't think I will ever give away!! Although saying that I made a different version of it with the Tea for Two suite which I gave to my special friend Jane yesterday for her birthday! I'll share that with you tomorrow maybe!!

I admired a collage art framed piece of work on Pinterest last week so decided to CASE it and make a version of it for a Valentine card! I loved creating each little piece of artwork and I used the 1 1/4 square punch for each block! The colour combo is Primrose Petals, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.

I love the new designed brads that you can decorate yourself! 

I also thought I would share some of my ladies cards that they made on Tuesday!

Here is Carla's card - she only joined our group recently and this was her second visit! Isnt her card amazing?!! Carla wanted a non-Valentine one so made it with birthday type sentiments instead!

This one is Anjie's, who is a dab hand with the daubers and her inking is fantastic! Again Anjie made hers into a Birthday card

And finally my good friend Jane's card! Jane has gone "off piste" and has added the extras over the edges of the squares and joined squares together and I love the effect! Jane also said she is never going to give the card away!!!

I hope you have liked seeing my inspiration. Please make sure you follow the loop and visit Debbi's blog next
