Here are some pics from the party.

{Bloomin Love!}

Happy Valentines Day!

I hope that whatever your love life is like you are living a life of gratitude and contentment.  I am very grateful for the love of a wonderful family and friends, but above all, each day I know and live in the love God shows me.

Here are a couple of cards I made a few weeks ago.  Thought it would be appropriate to share them today!

Here is a video with an explanation of how I made them.

{Hello Birthday Boy}

I just love how a few stamps can transform a blank piece of card into a work of art.  
Here is a slightly more masculine card for a "birthday boy"  The sentiment stamps are from the set Hello, that can be earned for free during Saleabration.

The other super fabulous thing about Saleabration (now till the end of March) is that if you sign up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator you get £160 of product for only £99!  There are lots of ways you can be a demonstrator, please have a look here for more information.

{My daughter's challenge entry}

My daughter has taken a real shine to stamping, she loves putting the images together to create a bit of a picture.  She completely suprised me at the end by wanting to draw a sun in the corner!


If you would like to watch her creative process, and hear her explaining what she's doing, here is a video...

{Sponged Birthday Blooms}

A couple of weeks ago I ran a class for children.  i introduced them to the idea of using a colour wheel, then set them challenges through out the class to use different combinations.  Here is the card I made with them to show what choosing 3 opposite colours would look like.

{Weekend Ramble}

Weekend Ramble...

For those of you who are new to my blog I just wanted to explain what my ramble is all about.  On my YouTube Channel I put all sorts of tutorials, overtime people who follow me said they like to hear me talk about what I've been up to in my life.  I didn't want to do that in all my videos so my weekend ramble is exactly that... a ramble.  So if you would prefer not to hear me witter on please feel free not to watch it, here is the card I made during the ramble.

{A field of flowers}

So pleased how this card turned out, and I've really enjoyed showing people how simple this technique is.  

Using three colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel, use the sponges to create bands of colour on Whisper White Card.  
Heat emboss the floral images with black embossing powder.
With a wet paint brush pick up some white ink from the Craft White inkpad and colour in some of the floral and leaf images.

{Bloomin' Hearts Thinlets Die in Gold Foil}

When I saw this die in the Spring/Summer catalogue, this die was one that I just oooooed over.


To be able to use the thinlet die you need to have a die cutting machine such as the Big Shot.
It's an amazing tool, it enables you to cut amazingly intricate shapes and dies with a few turns of the handle.  It is quite an investment -  however if you were to hold a party or sign up to Stampin' Up! you could have this machine for considerably less.

During Saleabration there are some great offers on, here is a video explaining how you can save money now.
