Hip, Hip Hooray it's a Holiday!

Hope your having a fantastic Easter.

I have managed to get some crafting done - not much, but I've had a great time doing something different with a brand new kit from Stampin' Up!

The Hip Hip Hooray card kit has everything - including stamps and a clear block - so it perfect for new crafters and experienced ones alike, and for just £17.95 it makes a fantastic gift.

There are enough supplies to make 20 cards and envelopes are included too, but I decided to make larger A5 cards. I followed the designs suggested in the kit to save some time.

I made all these A5 cards, which left me with 20 envelopes which were too small for the cards, so I made 3 mini albums by just slotting the envelopes together and adding some wet glue to keep the pages secure.

The only extra items I used were A4 sheets of white card from my stash and my SU Markers for some doodling on a few of the cards. I still have the ink spot, stamp set and some bakers twine left, absolute bargain!

Have a great Easter.

Mothers Day Card

Hi there
Just remembered to post a photo of Mums Mothers Day card (Yet another manic week!!!)

It's a 8"square card using the stunning gold embossed vellum, gold foil sheet, crochet trim, gold bakers twine and Typeset alphabet set. I even used my new scallop tag punch for the first time.

The chicks are doing great. There are four and they are running Evie absolutely ragged. As soon as the little minx's stand still for long enough I'll take some photos (they are beyond cute and changing all the time).

Have a great weekend.
