Daisy Delight...

Good morning, on Saturday I held one of my monthly classes and we used the Daisy Delight bundle this month (amongst other things!).  I could not resist one more outing of this delightful DSP before it retires in May.

We made this project which was designed by the lovely Sam at mixedupcraft.com.  I fiddled around with it a little so it worked in metric but the outcome was much the same and the ladies loved it.  I also made a shorter version which shows how versatile it can be.

Here is the project:-

 
 
This is such a great box and being on the larger side it makes it useful for lots of different gifts.  One of my ladies thought the large one looked like a telephone box and proceeded to make a tardis!  It is a work in progress but once she finishes it, I hope to be able to share it with you.
 
We then made several cards using this lovely bundle and DSP, it definitely has to be my favourite from the current catalogue.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you like the projects and if you have any questions then please let me know.
 
Happy Stampin!

COLOUR REVAMP AND RETIRING LIST...

 

Good morning, today I have some exciting news for you.  Stampin' Up! have just announced that we are having a colour revamp for 2018.  Whilst I love all the colours and will be sad to lose some of our beautiful colours, I am very very excited about the new colours we are gaining and even more exciting return of some of our loved previously retired colours (Blackberry Bliss anyone?!)
 
So firstly, here are the colours that we will be losing in the revamp...
 
 
My advice is to buy reinkers, cardstock and ink pads now (before they go out of stock) to ensure you can enjoy the colours in the future.
 
I am particularly sad to see Sweet Sugar Plum, Marina Mist and Island Indigo (actually in fact all of them lol!) disappear however, we have five new amazing in-colors, together with the five in-colors for 2017-2019 which of course will be with us for another year ...
 
I am loving the Lovely Lipstick if for no other reason than the name!
 
We also have some amazing returning colours Poppy Parade, Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana and Blackberry Bliss, remember those?
 
And it doesn't stop there, we have ten brand new colours joining us and I can honestly say I love them all, especially Merry Merlot (hic!)
 
 
The colour families have been revamped so they now look like this...what a beautiful colour palette...
 
 
And that's not all, on top of all this excitement, we have the retiring list which is now available to view by clicking here

You can order online or alternatively drop me an email and I would be happy to order for you.
 
Happy Crafting

Kre8tors Blog Hop Color Challenge...




Welcome to the April 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop!   

My name is Jo and I live in Norfolk in the UK. 

I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators.  This month’s theme is a Color Challenge. I can’t wait to show you my projects!

This is the challenge we were set...


As soon as I saw the Flying Home stamp set in the Spring/Summer 2018 catalogue, it was the first on my wish list.  I loved the bird houses and flower theme.  The colours set were just perfect for these projects. 
 
I started off with the little gift box, I love the shape of this box inspired by a toy I used to play with as a child.





 
 
I then wanted to create a card to go with it and here is what I came up with.
 
 
 
 
 Thank you for hopping to my site and checking out my projects! If you saw something you love, please contact your demonstrator to place your order. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to help you!
