~ A little late! ~

Well as I didn't see my fella until Friday night so I delayed posting his valentines day card just in case he peeked at my blog.

I made it with some stampin' up stamps and a random heart stamp I had (note to self : buy a valentines sentiment stamp)

Happy crafting!

~ Love is in the air ~

On Sunday, I had a fab time at Monica Gale's Stampin' Up class. It was great to see her as I hadn't managed to get since before I went to Vietnam.

As per usual she had an array of fabulous projects for us to do, 2 cards and a gift holder. She used some of the new stamps from this years catalogue. Some of which I desperately need!

We created a lovely pink elephant card which I have already ear marked for a friends birthday. This was such a cute and easy card to make. Next we made the bunting card using a technique which creates a chalkboard style background. Finally we made a Valentine's gift holder which was so cute and quite simple to make.

Happy Crafting!


~ Creative flow~

On returning from a trip to Budapest I couldn't sleep so got up around midnight and went in to my craft room. I made this card using last years Stampin' Up products.

The card is for a colleague who has recently had an operation and is recovering. I posted it to her the other day do it should arrive soon.

~ 427 steps ... ~

This is another photo from Halong Bay. This photo shows me about to walk up the 427 steep, uneven steps to the viewing point at the top of the island.

There is some hidden journaling behind the photo which documents the medical emergency I was involved in at the top.

Yet again I've used a Scrapagogo kit. I absolutely love these papers from Amy Tangerine. I just added a little washi tape and abit of ink from my stash.

I normally have my layouts with straight lines but tried something new with this one. I have also tried to embrace the sketch style of the papers by adding my own borders in pen.
