Autumn/Winter Catalogue LIVE tomorrow!

Hello there! Today I am sharing a little sneak peek from the Autumn/Winter catalogue that is LIVE from 1st September! Well technically it should be live from around 1am in the morning as long as all goes to plan! My regular online customers have had their catalogues to peruse since last week and one thing that is destined to be popular is the Cookie Cutter Christmas suite that I am sharing today.
This stamp set and punch has had a lot of love on my Instagram and Facebook and my class is filling up too on Saturday 24th September, details of it on my Classes/Events page. I have used the new Cookie Cutter stamp and matching punch as well as some lovely new paper too! The other items are from the Annual Catalogue.  I havent added the links for the products on this post as they are unavailable at the time of writing!
 This style card would work with any of the characters from the Cookie Cutter stamp set and I think I may just have to make one of each for my displays!
 Today is the last day to use the August Code as I will be closing the order off at about 5pm.
I'll be back tomorrow with a link to the new Catalogue!

Our 20th Wedding Anniversary

Hello there and Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you if you are in the UK. Hope you are enjoying an extra day off work!
Last Wednesday was mine and Mr K's 20th Wedding Anniversary and here is the card I made for him to celebrate our special Anniversary. I decided to go with cute rather than floral and opted for Mr & Mrs Fox!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love polka dots and also Pool Party so I teamed both of them together on this card. Secretly maybe I have made a card that I would be happy to receive myself!!

 There is one tiny new product on here from the Autumn/Winter catalogue! I wonder if you can guess what it is?

 I will be closing my August order on Wednesday so please don't forget to use my code for shopping online in August.

Watercolour Wings for Crafternoon Tea (Part 3)

Hello again! Today I am sharing the final part of my Watercolour Wings trio that we made at Crafternoon Tea in August. There is no Crafternoon Tea in September due to my Weekend Retreat but I do them every month continuing in October, please see my Classes and Events page for more details or you can check out my Facebook events HERE 
This was the final card from the trio and very different to the other 2 makes. We embossed the Pear Pizazz background with the Petal Burst embossing folder and layered the butterflies on top.
And here are all 3 of the makes together, all came with stamped envelopes too! Which one is your favourite?
August's Online Code is still active until 31st August, use the code when spending £25+ on my Online Store for a gift in September!

Watercolour Wings for Crafternoon Tea (Part 2)

Hello again and welcome back to another post with the Watercolour Wings stamp set and the Baby Wipe Technique. A very simple make with the stamped butterfly and the detailed die cut laid over the top with some added rhinestones.
I often never use all my sequins so I am determined to get them on more of my projects and this one was perfect for adding some of the Bermuda Bay sequins which we pulled off the thread and added individually. Little tip for this, add a tiny blob of glue to the card and then take the sequin to the card!
The sentiment is from the Fresh Fruit stamp set, a very useful little Happy Birthday stamp.
Please remember to redeem your coupons if you ordered in July and earned some money off vouchers.

Watercolour Wings for Crafternoon Tea (Part 1)

Hello there and welcome back to my blog today. Yesterday I ran my first ever Sunday class and had 5 lovely ladies join me for my Thoughtful Branches class with a little cream tea afterwards.

Talking of cream teas, today I am starting the sharing of the projects from my most recent Crafternoon Tea. I have a set of butterfly projects on display at my studio that probably get the most comments from my guests, there is a link to them HERE and I promised some of my ladies that I would do some butterfly makes with the same technique on a similar theme. Two of the colours had retired since I made the previous projects so I kept the Bermuda Bay and added some Pear Pizazz and Watermelon Wonder to create a summery feel.
I had 14 ladies attend this event so I did precut the white detailed butterflies for each guest to help with the running of the class.
We also stamped the butterflies on the envelopes using the same baby wipe technique.
I'll be back soon with the next creation in the set that we made.

Have a great Monday!

Wedding Card

Good Morning lovely readers and welcome to my blog today. Today I am sharing something a little different with you, a wedding card that I made back in July for some friends who I know through the theatre company. I attended the evening reception and had a fantastic night and gifted the couple some Project Life goodies so Sarah and Jamie could continue to work on their wedding album which Sarah started at a little private soiree I hosted at the studio a few weeks ago.
I wanted to utilise some gold on my card so I opted for the Delightful Dijon ribbon which is quite gold like and ties a lovely bow. 
I also used my new Large Letter framelits and stamps and embossed them with our lovely Gold Emboss powder after stamping in Versamark.
Inside got a little extra treatment too with a bit of baby swiping and the heart from the Blooming' Love stamp set.
Hope you liked today's make! See you tomorrow!
