I had a little get-together with the ladies of my team last week and as is traditional I made them all a little something. This is just a simple post-it note holder but I made them in the forthcoming In-colours so that they could all see the new colours properly. The stamped image is All a Flutter and the flowers are made from the Boho Blossom punch with an added Rhinestone or two.
You will be able to get your hands on these lush new colours soon but for now don't forget that we have the wonderful Autumn and Winter catalogue and don't miss out on favourites that are retiring forever at the end of September.

Another team training project but a deviation from the usual cards! This Christmas wreath uses nearly a whole reel of lucky limeade ruffled ribbon wrapped around a polystyrene ring and held with glue dots. I think the poinsettias are great too and so simple to make using the five petal punch, the boho blossoms punch and a glimmer brad.
I have more projects to share with you but as it is A level results day tomorrow I am not sure I will make it here.

Your Simply scoring board is not just for creating boxes and envelopes, here I have used it just to add some decoration to my card. You can't see it very well in the photograph I will have to try and get a close up but I have scored 3 parallel lines both above and below the flowers. The flowers are from the Boho blossoms punch and have rhinestones in the centre. Rich Razzleberry has always been a favourite of mine and I love this combination of razzleberry, Melon Mambo and chocolate chip.

Morning! How's the weather today? I have to confess I cheated and scheduled this to post while I'm at work today. I have such a busy few days ahead, I have an interview as a volunteer for the London Olympics this afternoon, prep for card club to do tomorrow oh and collection of my costumes for next weeks show and then Saturday is a visit to Birmingham with my daughter to look at the university. On Sunday we get to the theatre for the last couple of rehearsals before opening night on Wednesday. So you may not see much of me next week.
But back to today's offering, we made this at card club last month but I first did this at the Girl Guiding event I did in March. The card stock is So Saffron and I inked boho blossoms in the same colour. I added some butterflies in Marina mist ink and 3d mounted a marina butterfly and boho blossoms cut of course with their matching punches, so much easier and lovely to have an exact match. The Thanks sentiment is again stamped in Marina mist onto marina card and punched with the scalloped circle before being adhered to the matching satin ribbon. Add a bit of bling with rhinestones and there you are!
