Retro Fresh Wreath

I've had a fairly busy week with an Open House and preparing for a class but have managed to fit some creative time in as well.

I've made these wreaths using a polystyrene wreath ( £1 in the Wilkinsons sale - yay I love a bargain) and about 48 strips of 2cm x 20 cm paper cut from Retro fresh. This is a new paper in the Spring and Summer catalogue and it has matching washi tape, a this and that (smash) book and pocket cards.
The colours and papers all co-ordinate so well together.
The mini banner is made using the new banner punch which is one of the free choices with a £45 spend during the sale-a-bration promotion.

Hope you like it - I've really enjoyed making this and have a black and cream one in modern medley on the go.

Spring/Summer Catalogue Sneak Peak

I've made the wreath using a kit that will be in the new catalogue and designed a matching card and tag to form a class for Mother's Day. The cost will be £20 and it will run on 19th March - or other dates if there is enough interest.

There are several new products in the set - the My Mother stamp set which has a really nice big greeting, the matching petite petals stamp set and punch. I really like how dainty these flowers are and think I will be using them as finishing touches on lots of projects.

Happy Crafting everyone

Valentines/Love Class

Look at this lovely box frame and card made using Stampin' UP! products. I'm running a class to make these on 31st January in Newcastle Under Lyme from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm and the cost is £15/ This includes the box frame and materials to complete the frame , make a card and a tag.  I'll have lots of Stampin'  UP! inks and stamps on hand so you can personalize your creation. What better for a Valentine's or other gift than one you have made with love yourself.

I may be able to run this class on different days if you interested but the day/time is not convenient.

Here are some close up photos plus a different box frame design that is also available to make.

I've used the stamp set georgeous grunge for the card and matching frame background. This is one of my favourite sets at the moment as it allows you to add interest to your background without taking away from the focus of the frame.
