Crafty Dabble Day

The housing estate that I live on is pretty big and is a recently built development, we have a Face Book group with lots of members and I recently posted there and offered folk a 'Crafty Dabble'.  I'm hoping to start a regular Cheswick Craft Group and thought that those unsure what that might entail might like to come and see what kind of fun awaits.........

All set up and ready for my attendees with some of my cards displayed from training and recent classes
This little box was resized but the original idea came from Kerry Timms project at Monthly Training recently, so very cute. And using the great Bow Builder Punch too a new favourite. 
This card was one of the other projects from Monthly Training from Caroline Barker and I believe the original credit goes to Mary Fish.

The card features the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set and the Flower Medallion Punch the sentiment and DSP were both free items earned from Sale-A-Bration
There are only 2days left to earn your SAB freebies please don't miss out - spend £45 and get a free item  - there are lots to choose from the brochure is to the right of the page and then here are the extra items also available for free.

To help you get your £45 spend then this has to be the most fab bargain and my most favourite Stampin' Up! tool and its on weekly deals until end of Tuesday 31st March.  Usual price £17.95 offer price £13.46 AWESOME! We used this great tool at the Dabble Day to make that cute little Easter Box and it also makes treat pouches, little file folders you can make crackers with it, oh and as the name suggests it makes fab envelopes to fit a multitude of card sizes in both metric and imperial measurements. Anyone who buys one of these with me will receive a little booklet of ideas to create some great projects or if you live close to me a one to one lesson making the projects.  I am so convinced you will love it.

If I can help at all with any of your Stampin' Up! wants or needs please get in touch.

Loving the Butterflies

I unashamedly love butterflies always have always will.  Stampin' Up! has always indulged me with stamps and matching punches, but wow these new framelits are surely the prettiest things ever in the history of butterflies........

It would be impossible not to enhance any project with these beautiful pieces of art created from card and paper.......

This design was a case of a card by the 'oh so talented' Mercedes Weber.  So pretty don't you think, simple but with a wow.

And below an envelope album again really easy to put together.  I feel that this would make a good class.  And this is just featuring one of the 3 pretty Framelit dies, another being intricate and slightly larger than this one I've featured the third coordinating with a stamp from the Butterflies Basics stamp set again available from the Spring/Summer.

Still time to Sale-a-Brate!

We are a fair way in to the Sale-a-Bration promotion.  But there is still time to snag a freebie for a £45 spend until March 31st.  Holding a party during SAB is an excellent time to Host there is a boost to the Hostess pounds during the promotion for a qualifying party as well as the free choices from the SAB brochure for your £45 spend.
Here are some of the things I've been creating with items from the SAB and Spring/Summer catalogues. So many pretty things and as always I fell in love with way too many things.

Take a peek
 Using the Simply Wonderful Stamp set available FREE & exclusive to SAB

The Best Year Ever DSP again available FREE & exclusive during SAB


The beautiful Painted Petals stamp set from the Spring/Summer seasonal catalogue  - One of my favourite new sets and in pretty, fresh and bright colours there is a very different look to the box with a monochromatic colour scheme looking very vintage. Soft Suede and Early Espresso with Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon.  I made this cute box in moments with the amazing Gift Box Punch Board from a piece of card stock 8x8 inches.

Heres a look at some additional SAB products added for March.

Grab them while you can. Message me I can help.
