Half Term Havoc!!

Well ok it's not that bad!! The first week of Samuel's half term is nearly over, he doesn't go back to school until Thursday next week! So I'm racking my brains for more things to do with the boys to keep them ammused and stop them arguing!!! I live in hope!!

There sadly hasn't been much time for crafting this week so I'm going to show you this!

A cute little gift I made at Julie's card class. How sweet it is and so simple to make too! I shall be making lots more of these.

And here is the inside. It all folds up neatly to hide your message.

I'm off to do my housework then enjoy some sunshine! Have a good weekend!

A lovely weekend

What a lovely Bank Holiday weekend! We had a fun and relaxing weekend with the boys and friends and or course had some fab weather.

On Saturday I went to see my Stampin'Up Mum Julie, at one of her card classes. I had a great time, made some lovely cards and met some lovely ladies including my SU sister Sarah B!

So here are the pics of the lovely cards we made using the Stampin'Up wheels!

I used the SU ink pads and waterbrush to colour this card! And if you look closely at the little kennel, I decoupged it!! Cute!

This card is perfect for a gift as it has a lovely bookmark on the side. It's the first time I have made a bookmark card and I couldn't believe how easy it was. I will certainly be making more of these and you never know, it may make an appearance at one of my classes!!
Right I'm off now to find some bits for the boys to do as Samuel say's he is bored already!!

Jems Challenge

I'm a bit late posting this (I was adding the finishing touches), sorry girls! But here is my fries box.

I really enjoyed this challenge as I don't often get the chance to make boxes or other 3d items, which I would love to do.

The fries box, mini card and thread were in the kit, the rest is from my SU stash, but it all works really well together.
This is only part one, I'll post part 2 tomorrow (as I haven't done it yet!!!).

I've had another very busy week, so time at my craft desk has been very short!

Just a quick update on my card classes.
The class on the 9th July is now fully booked, but there are spaces on the other classes, but you need to get in quick as places are going fast!!!!

Hopefully I'll be back later with a Jems Challenge post, so make sure you pop back for a look!

Quick & Easy!

We have had a very hectic weekend! I haven't had the chance to go anywhere near my craft desk.
So here is a card I made for my nephews birthday the other week. I needed a quick and easy card, so knowing he likes trains, the Choo Choo set and wheel was perfect and so easy.

This set is fast becoming a favourite of my boys! Ben has had a go at making a card with it too, hopefully I'll be able to post a piccy of it later.
I'm off to catch up on some housework while waiting for another parcel from SU!!

Seeing Spots!!

I'm having a hectic week again, so this is only a short post!
Today I did a card making taster session at school with some of the parents. It seemed to go down well.
This is the card we made. I thought that with thoughts turning to the end of term, that a thank you card would be a good make, ready to give to the teachers.

The colours are Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive and we used the Seeing Spots stamp set and co-ordinating wheel.

Don't worry if you don't hear from me for a few days, I'll post again as soon as I can!

Frame It!

It was a few weeks ago now that I showed you Samuel's attempt at stamping with my new train stamp set from the mini catalogue.
Well we have framed it!!

With Samuel's guidance we picked the colours and created a background for his train. We ripped some card for the grass and cut out his train and created this lovely framed picture for his bedroom wall.

It has pride of place!!

We are making the most of the dry weather today, Ben and I have washed the groundsheets from the tent. Here's hoping the dry weather stays for a while!

Oohh Fruity!!

These little cards are very fruity and we had great fun making them at my card class last night. Thanks to my ladies for coming! I hope you enjoyed yourselves.

We used the Tart & Tangy stamp set, which is a BARGAIN at just £10.95!! And looks so good, very summery!

They work so well with the Summer Picnic papers, it really does make card making easier.

We used a selection of sentiments to finish off the cards, so my ladies could tailor them to the occasions they have coming up.

And we added the perfect finishing touch by adding these lovely stamps to the back, just so that everyone knows that they really were handmade!

Oh well I need to get some washing done, then the supermarket shop!! Enjoy your weekend.

Rock Star!!

It was Calum's birthday on Tuesday. He is the son of our lead guitarist, so it seemed fitting to make him a card with a rock star on!!
Oh and we just had to buy him Camp Rock on dvd too as he loved High School Musical so much!

The papers I used are Basic Grey, not my favs but these colours are great for boys cards. I coloured the Sugar Nellie using my SU ink pads and waterbrush and added some flowers and buttons from my collection.

I hope he likes his card and pressie!!

Right, I'm off to get Ben ready for Dinky Dancers and then to finish getting bits ready for my Tart & Tangy card class tonight. I'll be back tomorrow with pictures of what we get up to!
