Floral Frames Easter Card

The Floral Frames stamp set is so pretty and versatile but for some reason it had never ‘clicked’ to me that you can literally insert any sentiment you like into to the Centre of the wreath – lightbulb moment 💡 !!!!

I’m such a fan of this gorgeous stitched label die and somehow it has made it onto almost all of my Easter projects! Its size works perfectly with this design and I love the fresh fig/lovely lipstick, pear pizzazz and mossy meadow colour way.

I left the flowers white and added clear wink of stella for some subtle shimmer. The finished effect of the cards is really fresh and clean.

Floral Romance Easter Crackers

With Easter looming, I have been thinking of our family Easter lunch and table decorations.

I wanted to add a little sophistication to my Easter table this year with these gorgeous Floral Romance Easter crackers. Crackers for Easter? Well why not! These crackers fit a box of mini eggs perfectly 🐣 although there’s room for a few sweet treats of your choice!

Although by nature I’m usually attracted to bright, bold colours, there’s such a soft, feminine elegance to these stunning papers. The spring colours are just beautiful and perfect for this time of year.

Handmade Home Decor using Lovely Lipstick Foil

I have been refreshing my craft room in recent months and am totally in love with the stunning sale-a-bration Lovely Lipstick foil sheets. I love pink and this foil is just beautiful!

This home decor design is super simple but I love how few supplies you actually to need to make a beautiful addition like this to your home, and the best part is, it’s all handmade!

In person, the vibrant, lush foil looks fabulous against the crisp white background and frame. The white ornate frame is an old Heidi Swapp frame that I’ve been looking to re-purpose for some time, and I love how the bold pink words look in it.

Remember there is still time to earn this gorgeous foil paper for FREE when you place a £45 order in my online shop – but only until Sunday! xx

Toil & Trouble – Mini Halloween Treat Bags

The Toil and Trouble suite is so gorgeous! I’m not a huge Halloween lover but as soon as I saw the colours and designs of the DSP in this suite I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Tropical Chic Never Ending Card

There’s something so magical and fun about a never ending card. It doesn’t matter how old you are, the excitement of wondering what’s coming next never goes away!

They are also a lot of fun to make and really quite addictive – once I started, I couldn’t seem to stop!

The first one (top left) was made using the very pretty Country Home Stamp Set and Country Lane DSP in an 8″ x 8″ size. My second card (top right) was made using the Tropical Chic Suite. And my final (bottom) card used the gorgeous Animal Outing Stamp Set and Animal Expedition DSP.

The matting and layering takes a bit more effort with so many layers, but the finish made it totally worthwhile. Once I got into into, it became a labor of love!

So pleased with the way they all turned out, and making these cards is a lot easier than you might think. Click on the link below to see my video tutorial for how I did it, and thanks so much for visiting today 😘 xx

Animal Outing meets Delightfully Detailed Paper

It was little Sofia’s 3rd birthday at the weekend, and my family and I were invited along to celebrate this special event with her!  Since the party was being held at a farm, I decided to continue the animal theme by using the brand new Animal Outing bundle.  Oh my, this set is sooo adorable!  I decided to pair the gorgeous rhino with some of the stunning delightfully detailed paper. This paper is so beautiful and feminine- the creative possibilities are endless!

I carefully coloured the paper with daubers and just love the vivid flowers behind my smoky slate rhino!

I decided to make a matching gift box, and a gift card envelope using the retired Gift Card Envelope Dies – these dies cut a perfectly sized gift card holder and do all the score lines for you which makes for very quick and easy crafting!  They are currently still available on the clearance rack so be sure to click here to buy them from my online shop before they are gone!

I just love how easy it is to coordinate gift packaging with Stampin’ Up!  Looking forward to playing with this paper and stamps some more xx
