Hello Thoughtful Branches with Acetate


Phew! lovely and warm here in the Uk and about time, we needed some sun on our skin and bones

Only thing is I don't do much, if any. crafting!! just as well I don't live in a hot country but then I suppose I would be used to it and not sit out as much!  I have been reading quite a bit though some Lee Child books - good reads.

However,  I did make this the other day before we got the warm weather using some Window Sheet/Acetate for my card, I saw a while ago on Jennifer McGuires blog she did quite a few cards with Acetate so I kept them in mind and used the exclusive set coming August 2nd - Thoughtful Branches Bundle - I used the Framelit for this card

Sorry about the black on my Granite in the kitchen for the photo but the blinds and curtains are closed everywhere else to keep things cool 


I used the Hello You thinlits for the sentiment and die cut 5 pieces and stuck them all together for some dimension, then added some glossy accents to the top to make it shine


I just noticed the double watermark Oops sorry again and

Thanks for looking

Hope you are enjoying the warm sunshine today

Until next time .........

Thoughtful Branches - Stampin' Up! Tree Card


We had a bit of a sad disaster!

We lost a very old Cherry Tree, very sad to lose a tree but on the plus side we have more logs for the log burners we have in our lounge and dining room and cherry wood smells lovely when it burns





It seemed only fitting to make a card with trees and my pre-order of the Thoughtful Branches Bundle arrived a couple of days ago, perfect for my card

Yes it's a Christmas Card in July


I tried to show off the sparkle in the photo below but nah! it wasn't having it


Back in my craft room the lights showed the sparkle a bit better but not much!


The sentiment is from Oh What Fun Stamp Set

I think I am going to have lots of crafting time with the set and not forgetting the dies to go with them

Bonus Days



You can earn £4.50 vouchers by spending £45 during July and spending them in August, this set will be available from 2nd August and this set is exclusive to August, why not spend some of your vouchers on the bundle?

thanks for looking

Tent Card Notes Holder using Stampin' Up! products


Hello again

I made this tent card some time ago and added some stamped notes

You could leave the paper inside plain and it sit it on you desk to quickly make a note

The Little Letters are retired but I couldn't order the letter stamps I wanted until the beginning of July so I improvised, I now have my Brushed Alphabet Stamp Set to make another set, I'll post that soon with some instructions on how to make it


The 'Just a Note' sentiment is from Flowering Phrases Stamp Set
and my Jar with little fish is from the Jar of Love Stamp Set


Thanks for stopping by

Until next time ............

Hershey Nugget Pizza Style Box


Hope you all had a fantastic weekend

I was supposed to be tidying up in my craft room and re-organising but the Wimbledon Tennis was on!

So that was delayed until Monday - all tidy and lots of new supplies put away

When I receive my new products from Stampin' Up! I have them piled up on my desk in the craft room and eventually I hope to use them all but alas yesterday I didn't even have a 6x6 space to work in, so no more delay in tidying

Another thing I have to do and I am really putting this off !!  I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2009 and have most retired items in box's and they are taking over the house! not just stamps but retired card/designer paper/accessories/ribbon and although it hurts me just thinking about it 😂 I can't keep putting off the job.........

..... but for now I have a Hershey Nugget Treat Box to share, we call candy sweets so the sentiment from Thoughtful Banners was perfect and punched with the matching Banner Punch


I decorated the chocolate with the Floral Boutique Designer Paper and created a belly band to hold it together


Here is a closer look at the treats - see that one at the bottom left? it looks like it's trying to escape the paper - yummy it tasted lovely 


Thanks for taking time to look

Don't forget the Bonus promotion this month click on the photo below to see all the details

Card with Die Cut Out - Stampin' Up! Style


Here we go with another Monday, don't they come around so quickly!

Hope you had a great weekend, I went off to the NEC on Saturday and travelled there by train - a first for me I normally drive or even go by coach/bus.  The train journey was good with only one change of trains and a short walk.  I received a free ticket to go and I guess a lot of other people did too as it was sardines in a can in the hall which was far too small for the event!!  only stayed a couple of hours  they let far too many people in and with all the wheel chairs and electric scooters it was a real nightmare.  Although, I did enjoy the couple of hours before I was squashed in that sardine can.

Yesterday, I watched tennis and did some crafting! I don't have too many days without crafting.

Anyway on to the card for today

I used the very popular Detailed Floral Thinlits for my card front in Sweet Sugarplum 


I die cut a portion of the centre of the card for a different look, the sentiment stamped on one of the new Nesting Oval die cut out in Whisper White - the sentiment is from a different stamp set called Blooms and Wishes


Hope you like the card for today

Until next time.......

Hope you get time to craft today
