“Honey Bee Mini Album!”

Hello everyone,

I hope your Monday isn’t too bad and you are having a nice day…………….

Today is my Monday off, after quite a busy fortnight. I am #stayathome today and crafting, watching a couple of DVD’s and chillax’n…………. I just popped in to share with you a super cute mini album that I made with a lovely lady and her group on FaceBook. It was so much fun to make with her.

I used all new Stampin Up Products that are available now. There is a bit of a delay on shipping some items, but the Warehouse is doing a great job on this, to keep us informed and able to get products. I followed the instructions for the mini-album and used a Black 8.5 x 11 Cardstock to cut down for the pages.

I used the gorgeous Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed dies for easy cutting out of the stamps.

This is the Golden Honey Bee Designer Speciality Paper I had to use for the page embellishments, like the tags, pockets etc. The gold tones on the paper are perfect.

The front cover I used some of the gorgeous stamps in the set. I couldn’t go past the honeycomb die on the background and the super cute beehive. The bees were stamped and die cut, and the detail of the bee is beautiful.

“World Card Making Day”

Hi, My Fellow Crafty Peeps!

Sorry for the late post, as I have been working over the weekend and the time has flown!

If you didn’t know October 5th is World Card Making Day!! So… Inbetween work and a bit more gardening I found some inspiration to make Wedding cards yesterday., and still going today also. I have a permanent place with a stallholder at our Murray Street Market and my cards sell quite well. I need to catch up so hence the busy today!!

I am quite happy with my achievement this weekend and I will be making some later in the week also after a few supplies I have ordered arrive 🙂  I tend to forget what I need when I haven’t made them for a while 😦

I like buying my cards pre-cut and scored as this saves me time and wasted cardstock. I have stamped a background base for each of them then, I tore some black cardstock and layered some different laces from my stash on top. I then stamped and fussy cut out different stamped images for the focal points and finished off with a die-cut or stamped sentiment.

It was fun to get my stamps and die cutting machine out and get using them again!

I hope I may have inspired you to get creating this weekend!

enjoy
