As I mentioned earlier in the week, on Sunday I went to my first ever Stampin' Up Card Club held by demonstrator Monica Gale. Below are the 3 projects we completed.
I absolutely love the colours she has chosen to create these items.
This box is actually made using the Stampin' Up Milk carton die. It's amazing what people can do with dies.
This is my favourite of the 2 cards I just love the cute little butterflies. I feel another purchase brewing! Oops!
I love how simple the cards are and how easy they were to make. But they look so elegant. I'm already looking forward to the next one.

Happy Valentine's Day to all you hopeless romantics!
This 8x8 minibook has been sat in my craft room unfinished for years. The kit is one I bought from a craft show and the papers are from Rusty Pickle who sadly no longer manufacture scrapbooking supplies.
The minibook contains lots of photos of myself and my boyfriend spanning the years we have been together.
I gave my boyfriend this for his birthday as we don't celebrate Valentine's Day. It's very commerical and as it's his birthday on the 9th Feb we celebrate that instead.
I added pieces of red and white washi tape throughout the minibook to create continuity.

Crikey, hasn't it been cold!!! I'm not impressed with having to scrape ice off my car every morning. Hope you are all hibernating in your craft rooms.
This card was made for my boyfriends birthday. I really struggle to make male cards but really like Papermania's Urban stamp collection. I stamped them using blue distress inks of various shades. To make the main feature I inked a piece of card and then stamped over it with archival ink. To finish it off and add abit of glitz I sprayed the card with glimmer mists.
Today I went to a Stampin' Up Card class which I absolutely loved. I'll share what we made later in the week.

Good Morning from a frosty white South Yorkshire...
Here I bring you Little Claire's February Stamp club kit. I absolutely love this little cute stamp set.
The meadow patterned paper adds a lovely touch to the stamped images. The images were stamped with memento ink then coloured using promarkers.
I hope you don't end up with too much snow this evening and you all get plenty of crafting done.
