Happy Fathers Day

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
It's a tad warm here in the southeast.
I started gardening at 7.30 this morning, to avoid the hottest part,
and we have friends popping by, so it's a chance to sit in the shade and have a natter.

Meantime, I feel bad that this years fathers day cards are from my old stash.
Needs must, as I just ran out of time, and I was fairly happy that they'd worn fairly well.

You can probably see various versions of this on pinterest


Here's the inside


The other, whilst less complicated, I think is my favourite...



My poor Dad is in a care home at the mo, and I can't get in to see him tomorrow,
but I have left him with a little bag of goodies, that I hope he'll enjoy :)

Have a great weekend,
and if you can't be with yours tomorrow,
I hope you'll have happy times you can remember instead.

Mirror Mirror on the wall....

.......who is the fairest of them all....?

you know who you are Birthday Girl,


I confess I didn't have much time, but I know she loves this stamp set,
Beautiful You
and I was planning my next class, which is based around the Reflection or Mirror Image Technique.


I used Oval dies for the mirror frame, and the bow from 
Window Box Framelits to make the stand.


the reflection was a tad fuzzy, but I watercoloured both images with ink and wink of stella.

Big Happy Birthday

Have you seen the Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Thinlits die?!
It's an all-in-one BIG awesome useful and versatile die
and it was TOP of my Wish List! 


I inked two backgrounds with Glycerin and SU inks
(Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Tempting Turquoise)
(the glycerin helps the ink move and blend....a Sheena Douglas trick...I am a massive fan)


Cut a die from one, a die from Basic Black, layered them up to create a "shadow"

 

Then had two disasters!
Disaster 1 = somehow got a splodge of glycerin that bleached out a splat
(you do know splodge and splat are technical terms, right?)
Disaster 2 = glue showed all round the die because I rushed it,
AND I'm awaiting delivery of the new SU adhesive sheets!


So, Remedy 1 = chop bits off all round a re-mount (can you see the difference?)
Remedy 2 = gently brush Wink of Stella on the black shadow =  happy accident!

It's hard to see the difference, especially as my photography is so naff,

so here they are again (otherwise you'll be scrolling up down up down)



Luckily my Nephew will know nothing of this drama,
and instead can just enjoy a very
Happy Birthday!

Gift Voucher

I love giving Gift Vouchers!
It gives pleasure to the gift giver AND to the recipient
AND to me!

I had to decide how to decorate this one,
so rummaged in my pretty DSP stash and found this
(I don't fret about using retired stash because I do it all for free)



I love how there's two colourways of the same pretty design,
so the inside is the same, but opposite....on white


I made a belly band for this one, and wrapped some lush ribbon around.
this meant it could easily be slipped off without having to tie any bows!

You are welcome to order vouchers for others, 
or get your loved one or friend to order one for you,
whatever the occasion, whatever denomination.

Just ask for details
I love making people happy!

Memories

How many of you never get round to saving your photos into an album?
Have you or someone you know lost them?
Do you think it'll take too long?
Don't know where to start?
Are your photos stuffed in a box never to be sen again?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these,
you NEED Memories & More!





I went to a Training day recently, and were "forced" to complete a page.
(We're never forced to do anything except have fun)

I didn't take any photos,
but had lots of fun choosing coordinating cards in a layout,
(that didn't take long because everything with Stampin' Up! coordinates)
and stuffing them in the pockets.

It is that quick, I challenge you to come to my "Complete a Scrapbook in a day" event,
or try Memories & More for yourself, and see how easy it is.
Print your photos (there's loads of free/good value websites that save your printer ink)
make / journal a few notes on cards in the kit, add a few fun accessories,
and you will have an album that people will actually want to have a look at!




You can get everything you need from my Online Shop HERE,
Albums, Pockets, Kits etc.

Lift Me Up for a swap

I enjoyed playing with Lift Me Up so much,
I decided to do a swap based on it for a recent training day...


I took some of the new In Colour Card




stamped a "few" bits



die cut the sentiment with a cloud
(close up of the "how" in case it helps you do the same)



die cut lots of dinky hearts using the Window Box Thinlits,
and added some fine tip glue to give a sheen to them



shame the colours don't show well


a close up of the detail

I have used lots of teeny tiny Snippets, and it's about time I took a run, skip and hop over to the
to enter the fabulous challenge there.
Do join me on the swings if you can!


I hope you are enjoying the weekend,
and your new catalogue!
