September Card Club and Blog Hop

Hopefully you have hopped over from Lynne's stunning work from her lovely blog.
September saw the launch of the new Stampin Up Autumn/Winter catalogue.  It was decided that this months workshop would be three Christmas cards.  I have used a combination of new SU goodies from the new catalogue and goodies that are sadly retiring at the end of the month!
This card is using Island Indigo cardstock, with the new Festival of Prints Designer Series papers and Baja breeze ink.  The snowflake has been cut out using the new Snow Flurry Bigz Die and finished off with some jewels.  The sentiment is from Contempo Christmas, one of our retiring sets.
 Using one of my favourite combos of Old Olive and Crumb Cake.  I have used Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the new (and my current favourite) Ornament Keepsakes stamp set with the Framelits Dies which are sold as a bundle. The lace here is being discontinued too- but don't worry the Victoria Lace is staying!  I have sneeked a little bit of Cherry Cobbler in this card too!
 All I can say about this card is wow!! I was a bit susceptible about the Scented Stampin Emboss Powder when it was launched in the summer catalogue and completely bypassed it!! However I decided to give it a whirl.....and tried the Sugar and Spice one.  I have used the circle stamp from the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and stamped on to Very Vanilla - I made this card 2 weeks ago and the smell is still going strong - can you imagine the response you would get sending this card in the post!.....Merry Christmas!  I have used Rose Red cardstock and ribbon with one of our new Designer Ribbon Slides.  This gorgeous sentiment is from Heard from the Heart stamp set - another stamp set also retiring.  
If you would like any of the above goodies or a peek at the new catalogue please don't hesitate to contact me at

Scrapbook page - mini kit

A simple kit I created using all stamping up products - these papers were left over from the Spring mini catalogue - Spice Cake - but it just shows you how well all the papers co-ordinate beautiful on a scrapbook page!  I have used the Large Tag punch (119876) and the Petite Pennamts Builder punch (122361). My group of ladies made this LO in a matter of minutes - we had a lovely evening chatting and they all went away with a page ready for photos - all they had to do was add a title!
 Here is my completed LO with photos of Giraffes @ Marwell Zoo.
I have 3 of these kits left - all ready to go and everything is punched out - it just needs sticking and photos adding!! - £3.00 each just email me if you require one.

Wedding Day!

This post is very picture you have been warned!  It's here!  The wedding invitations I worked so hard on earlier in the year (see the original invite below), today is Lindsay and Joe's wedding day - and we have glorious sunshine!!
 In addition to the invitations, RSVP, evening invitations, envelopes and directions I made everything below to co-ordinate and match.
 Order Of Service - using the same font/ink/card and stamp set Pocket Silhouettes.  On the bottom is a photo of Joe and Lindsay - taken in Prague the day Joe proposed!
 Place Cards

 Tiny Tags - using the SU Tiny Tags stamp set and Jewel tag punch - I made 130 of these, with yellow and white bakers twine - these are to go on the little bags of M&M's (which I will take a photo once I get one!!)
 Daffodil Yellow and Whisper White to match everything.
 The Wedding Card Box - a plain box I covered in white satin and I added the Daffodil Delight striped ribbon and daisies.  The lace (dyed yellow as before) and button match the original invitation.

 Little thank you tag cutout using my big shot die, finished off with the same flower and pearl that was used on the original invite.

 A little butterfly on top on the box to finish it off!
 The Table Plan - only four tables so I had lots of space to work with, therefore I added the big bow and daisies to match everything else.
 Another butterfly too!

I was exhausted by the time I finished it all, but was pleased with the overall result - Lindsay and Joe loved it all and I cannot wait to see it all tonight at the venue - pop back soon and I am sure I will have some photos of the lovely Bride and Groom to show you!
