Seasonal Bells for a Golden Wedding

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you. My boys are back at school today after having a week off and whilst I love having my boys at home it's always nice to get back into a routine. This week is a little quieter as I only have one event (Coffee and Card on Tuesday morning) but I will be spending time getting my classes prepped and planned for November. Still availability on some classes HERE
Today's make is another quick one I came up with to showcase the Seasonal Bells and their versatility. You know me, I love my embossing and kept this card simple with a big gold bow! Love my bows too, much to the annoyance of my customers sometimes!
 Here's a close up to show you just how lovely the gold embossing is.
My next door neighbour at the studio has asked me to make him an anniversary card for his wife so I had better get on with that today!

Seasonal Bells for a Silver Wedding

Hello there and welcome to my blog today. I am continuing with my sharing of projects with the Seasonal Bells stamps and punch but this time it's not a Christmas make, but a Wedding Anniversary make.
 I recently shared the Seasonal Bells set at a couple of Stampin Up parties and wanted to show my ladies that they can also use it for wedding and anniversary related projects tool. This was a quick make with the set and some silver accessories. I got out the Versamark and the Silver Emboss Powder to create this card along with the Lovely Lace embossing folder for the background. 
 Here you can see the Silver Embossing in a little more detail
 Hope you like todays make and have a lovely Sunday whatever you are up to! Today I will be closing off my October Online Code club order so please do submit your orders by 1pm to ensure you are part of the club this month. Thank you to those who have used my code this month.

Upcoming Classes

Hello there! I am popping an extra blog post in today just to promote a couple of classes that could use a little extra love in November. 
My November Crafternoon Tea (on Saturday 12th November) has 6 seats still available and I would love to be able to tell my fabulous caterer that we have a full house. This will be my last standard Crafternoon Tea of 2016 as the ones in December are special Christmas versions.
If you haven't been to a Crafternoon Tea yet then here is what we get up today! I like to say we do some "gentle crafting" for an hour and a half and this month we will make some lovely Christmas tags, shown further down. We usually craft for about 1.5 hours of so and then comes the star of the show! The Afternoon Tea, created by my lovely caterer Jayne who will come and serve this for us. It consists of everything you would expect, sandwiches, savoury tarts, 2 lots of cake, and my favourite scones with cream and jam! Of course there is also plenty of tea and pink lemonade served in my cute mini milk bottles with straws!
Here are the tags that we will be making!
If you would like to come along, the cost is £25 
Saturday 12th November @ 3pm

I also have a few seats left for my Christmas ReTREAT days on Wednesday 16th and Saturday 19th November. This is a really special TREAT day with all your food provided for the day, Brunch, Lunch and Afternoon Tea as well as gorgeous projects and a £50 goody bag!
During this All Day Event we will make the Peg Wreath, Christmas Bunting and some other lovely makes. Links to book onto this class can be found on this page HERE

Thanks for reading today, just a little reminder that my Online Code Club will end tomorrow so please do use the code if you would like a free gift in November.

Seasonal Bells again!

Good Morning and welcome back to my blog today. I am back with some more Seasonal Bells and a card that I totally CASED from Dawn Olchefske which you can find HERE
  I love the modern colours used in the papers, a little alternative from the traditional greens using Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy. 
 The card also includes the addition of the Holly Berry Happiness punch and stamps as well as the Seasonal Bells. I love the inclusion of the Christmas Wishes from across the miles in the stamp set and a lot of my customers have found this useful.
Just a little touch of the Presents and Pinecones papers, still on offer this month, finish the card off nicely.

There is still time to use my Online Code for this month and get a lovely gift in the post in November from me!

More Seasonal Bells

Well what can I say? I am VERY late posting today as we were off to a uni visit at 8am this morning! Whose idea was it to book on the earliest welcome tour??? So I am very late with my blog today, but better late than never eh?
Today I have another make with the Seasonal Bells for you which was CASED from a card I saw on Pinterest from Mary Deatherage HERE. Thank you for the inspiration Mary. I love the addition of the NOEL wording on this card which is courtesy of the Christmas Stockings die set. 
Hope you like todays make and the good news is I think we may have finished with the uni visits now! We just have the whole application to do now!

Seasonal Bells

Good Morning! I am so late posting this today! This weekend has been a bit of a blur and consisted of university visiting, a peg wreath class, cricket club presentation evening and then all day Sunday helping Ross with a filming project for his portfolio. Phew, I am glad its the school holidays this week!

Today I am sharing a card I made at a couple of workshops I ran earlier in the month for lovely customers of mine who kindly hosted them for me. 
I used the Seasonal Bells bundle which is such a good value bundle and is great for non-christmas cards too. I will be sharing more makes with this card throughout the week for you.

Just a little reminder that the Presents and Pinecones papers that I have used on this card are still available on our BUY 3 and get a 4th FREE paper promotion for the month.
I do hope you like todays make, I will be back with more!

Peg Wreath Class

 Good Morning folks and welcome to my blog today! Today I am sharing a few photos from a lovely class I ran yesterday afternoon and one which I will be repeating on Saturday 29th October. You can attend either at 10am or 2pm, the choice is yours but I do need to know ASAP if you would like to attend!
Here is my wreath that I made back at the beginning of September. It was the star of the show at my weekend retreat back in mid September and has had a lot of love in the Studio since.
 I promised the ladies a little cream tea as part of the class so I set out the vintage china and milk bottles for the pink lemonade, we even had Christmas napkins too!
 A little Christmas chocolates on at their places were another little touch from me!
 Here is the little cream tea I supplied for my ladies. Scones, mini mince pies and stollen bits, ooo I do love Christmas food!
