Another month passes me by!

It really doesn't seem a month since I last posted, I don't know where the time goes!

Oh well.....I am sure you are far more interested in seeing a few projects I've made, rather than hear my pile of excuses, so here goes...........enjoy!

I love this stamp set, it has to be one of my favourites of all time - Nature Walk by Stampin' Up.  I made a pleated style card, using the Designer Paper that matches the stamp set Botanical Gazette.

On this Sympathy card I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch, together with our new Stampin Up Decorative Label Punch and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

We were invited to a wedding earlier this month and this was the card I made to use as our reply.  I've used the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up, together with the So Many Thanks stamp and embellished with Basic Pearls and Kraft Taffeta ribbon by Stampin' Up.

I loved making this card fom my dear friend who recently turned 21.  I used the stamp set Party This Way, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Extra Large Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch and on the front I used part of the Top Note Die, Fun Flowers Bigz L Die, Word Window Punch and Modern Label Punch.  The paper is from the Nursery Suite Speciality DP from Stampin' Up.

I actually had a bit of fun creating this album page today.  Whilst surfing the net, as you do ;)  I caught this layout and had to give it a try.  The base card of this 12 x 12 album page is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake and I've used Stampin' Up Designer Paper from the Regals Stack.  I've used Stampin' Up Chip Board Alphabet and Stampin' Up Punches for the embellishments.  I splattered the whole page (covering the photos for a minute) with white acrylic paint to finish it off.

I made lots of these cards for a Pink Ladies team swap to swap at a reward day I went on.  I used the Flower Daisies Die and the Beautiful Wings Emosslits Die.  The Stamped sentiment came from a very useful set, in my opinion, Perfect Punches by Stampin' Up and I used the perfect punch to go with it Extra Large Oval.  The ribbon is the Stampin' Up 1-1/4" Striped Grossgrain in Early Espresso.

Wow, what a post, hope you found it worth waiting for!
