Nature Walk Stamp Class......

Hello Everyone - Happy Easter to you All....

Isn't this weather lovely? We have just been away on Holiday for a Week to France and we had the same weather. Our Allotment is coming on nicely again, lots happy in a week when you are growing veggies!!!

Anyway back to Business. This is my Nature Walk Stamp Class. Cor! I love this Stamp Set, its full of elements and the bird is so real looking! Lots of different cards which will all fit into the Window Gift box.

A little bit of embossing going on with the Big Shot!!!!

If you fancy playing along, the instructions are available on the right.

This is the holiday park we stayed at just outside Paris. It only take 2 and a half hours from the Tunnel.

The Film Crew had just arrived to start Filming to next Series of Merlin and My sons were pleased as we had a drink in one of the cafe's in Pierrefonds, the men were telling each other they had just finished filming a NEW Top Gear Race!

Right then my bed is calling me!

Thanks for looking,

Jenny :-)xx

For Everything Stamp Class.....

Good Morning Everyone.....

I've been busy sorting out summer clothes for our holiday and Now the Sun has gone in!!!! Super Nice Ironing pile waiting for me today. It's my Youngest Son's Birthday today! Finally he is 15! He has always seemed much older than he really is, so much so we tried to see a 15 film as a family last year and totally forgot that only one of our two sons was infact 15 at the time! hee hee. Time flies by when they are young, we are so lucky that they still want to spend time with us (well mostly anyway!) So we are off to the Movies today. It was hubbie's birthday on Saturday, so we saved up to go out just the once to celebrate both birthdays.

This is my For Everything Stamp Class. It's actually quite a large stamp set with 11 pieces in total. I decided to use the In Colours as my colour combination and some fun Diamond shaped cards, mixed in with three others.

This one is a double diamond card.

This one has a diamond middle and sometimes called a Spring Card.....

This one has a diamond Top to it, which is sort of hidden by the frame but I think you can just about see what I mean.
Hope you are all enjoying Half Term Holidays.......if you still have kiddies at school.

Thanks for looking,

Baby Blossoms Stamp Class .......

Good Morning All. I think the Sunshine is trying to come out! Right Then its one of the Mini Catalogue new stamp sets for this week's Stamp class. It's the Baby Blossoms one, I just knew I would enjoy playing with this set. Stampin' Up! does Two Step stamping so well. This set is so cute, the stamps are quite tiny and there are 18 of them in the set, the possibilites are endless. I decided to make two sets, one in Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Pear Pizzazz, and one in Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz. If this set was abit larger, I could have stamped it in my hall wall instead of the wallpaper, as its very similar! This is the Blue version. Three cards and a matching Top Note Sliding Box. This is the Pink Version. All the cards and their envelopes fit inside the box. Right Then, Must get on as the Boys are on Holiday for Easter for two weeks at the end of the week and then my hubbie is taking off two weeks as well!!!! Thanks for looking, Jenny:-)xx

Fun Flowers Big Shot BigL Projects....

These are the other samples I made for my Open House on Thursday. They are the other colourway in the Springtime Vintage papers, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz are so free together, Don't you think? I have always loved butterflies. We went to Kew Gardens last Summer and they have some huge live butterflies in one of their Greenhouses, such beautiful colours. This is an Easel Card made from the New Scallop Circle die. Can you see the glitter, its called Glass Glitter. It is so easy to collect back up!!!! Which helps as I seem to get glitter every where. The lady in the Post Office always knows when I have been crafting, due to the glitter on my FACE! The 4 U was cut using the Timeless Alphabet dies. The easel is held up with the Four Frame stamp set which was punched with the decorative label punch. The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set.

It's lovely to be able to make different shaped cards with the Big Shot now! The frame in the middle is another Four Frames image. .

The sentiment on this one is from the Cleary for You stamp set. The embossed section is the vintage wallpaper folder. The seam binding ribbon is ruffled and glue to the back of the circle which was cut using the #2 Circles die. The shape behind is the Top Note die. The leaves is a sizzlit called Little Leaves.Another card and Bag like the previous colour way. I love the flowers after you emboss them. This is a little box made from one sheet of cardstock and two top note shapes for the top and bottom.

The seam binding ribbon was added in a straight line for this card. It is so easy to ruffle and its so soft and silky.

Well that's me for Today.

I have a couple of Classes for Tomorrow so check back then.

Thanks for looking,

Stampin' UP! New Mini Catalogue GOES LIVE!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone! Today is the day the New Mini Catalogue goes LIVE! It is so exciting that I can't type quick enough to Tell You what's in store for you! THE BIG SHOT MACHINE IS IN THE MINI!!!!!!!!!!!!!HEE HEE. Let me say that again, We now have the Big Shot with the EXCLUSIVE Stampin' Up! Dies in the Mini. Can you believe that? My poor family have been going Crazy with me telling them every day.....NOW I can tell YOU! I have been busy making lots of samples with the New Products. This is the best Mini we have had yet and it was really hard to choose what to play with first. There's lots of papers, ribbon, buttons, punches and co-ordinating stamp sets. If you haven't got a copy yet, email me and I will pop one in the post if you do not have your own Stampin' UP Demonstrator. There are 24 Dies in the Mini to go with the BIG SHOT! Of which 18 are exclusive to Stampin' UP! Isn't that great? For these cards, I used the BIGZ L Die called FUN FLOWERS. You can cut lots out at the same time, I was running through four sheets with this flower die, its so quick. The papers are the Springtime Vintage and the shape behind the flower is called the Top Note another Stampin' UP! Exclusive. We have 5 embossing folders. The one above is the Square lattice and the ones below are the Perfect polka dots and the Vintage wallpaper for the flowers. I cut the flowers first and then run them again through the BIG SHOT with the embossing folder.
Just look at these Beautiful Butterflies.................hee hee. LOVE THEM! I am really liking River Rock and Always Artichoke together. The centre Rose Red butterfly is from another die called an Emblosslit. It cuts and embosses 5 Butterflies at the same time!
The word MUM was done with the Alphabet set called Timeless Type. It comes in a lovely case and it has upper, lower and numbers....
I love the embossed flowers, the two folders for these are the Square Lattic and the Vintage Wallpaper ones.
Can you see the frame in the middle of the card behind the sentiment this is a new punch called Decorative Label. There is a matching stamp set called Four Frames. The ribbon running across the card is the new Seam Binding ribbon it is perfect for pulling a thread and ruffling it up!
You can just see the pattern on the frame in the centre here. The flowers embossed on the top note is called Elegant Bouquet. The butterflies are from the Embosslit folder called Beautiful Wings.
The paper is called the Springtime Vintage. I ran it through the Big Shot.

I'll tell you if something is standing still long enough, it will be ran through the BIG Shot!!!!

I made a matching gift bag to go with the card as well. It has one of the paper bags inside and the handle is punched using the large oval punch. The ribbon is the Baja Breeze Seam Binding.
I covered another Art Journal, its the large one in the Main Catalogue. I double layered the letters with pear pizzazz behind them. Can you see the Buttons in the centre of the flowers they are in the mini, they are huge!
The Top Note is behind the flower.
Sorry for bombarding you with Stuff but I do have lots more, enough for a whole week to show you so pop back for more.......

You can view the catalogue on the left hand side or Email me if you would like me to post a copy to you.

Thanks for looking and letting me ramble on.......Have a good day.
