Mum's are best!

Well my mum is!!  She reads this too, so she's loyal as well! My first Stampin'Up class was a Mother's Day theme.  We made a handbag shaped gift package and a matching card.  The Handbag idea came from the very clever Frenchie.  I saw her tutorial on YouTube and scaled up the size to make my version a bit larger. We used a 12 x 12 sheet of Everyday Enchantment Designer series paper cutting it down to 10 1/2 inches square and using the off cuts for the card, (though this one I mocked up, uses DSP that is now retired)  Dressing our bags up with punches and die cuts and a pretty rolled ribbon rose.
We had some lovely results they were all very pretty!  I think there were some happy Mum's receiving their handmade items!






My mother's day weekend was spent in Devon with friends celebrating my friend Tina's 40th Birthday and it was also Neil's Birthday too. Olivia had great fun too, she really liked the chickens and here she is with a friendly one, known as Miya's Chicken - Miya being the Farmhouse Owner (Jo's) 3 year old daughter, who is very fond of the chickens. 


I'm sure this one laid the eggs I brought home, they were yummy and you'd be struggling to get fresher!!

I'm busy making samples with my new purchases currently so expect to see some new ideas here very soon. I am so loving the Doiley Designer Papers and Mocha Morning well those are just exquisite.  I must stop stroking them and make the cut..............!! 

I'm also prepping some make and takes for two parties next week.  I'm looking forward to visiting Vikki's house on Monday and Lynnes's house next Thursday and introducing as many ladies (& gents) to the wonders of Papercrafting with fantastic Stampin'Up products.  Lookout folks and welcome to getting well and truly addicted to making pretty things!!
