Oh, Hello!

Hello!  It's been a while!

As some of you may know, as well as being an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, a mum and working part-time as a Biomedical Scientist, I am also a PhD student.  How do I fit it all in? I hear you ask.  Well, my lack of blogging for over a month shows that I am yet to find the answer to that question myself!

I might not have had time to update this blog, or send out my 'monthly' newsletter, but I have had time to enjoy Sale-a-bration and if you haven't, there's still a little time.  Up until the 30th of March 2014, every £45 you spend with Stampin' Up! will earn you an exclusive SAB product absolutely FREE!  Visit my online shop and treat yourself today.

The Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue is full off amazing products, many of which have found their way onto my wishlist and into my craftroom.  Today, I am going to share a couple of projects made with a couple of 'essential' items.

I initially overlooked these two stamp sets the first time I looked at the catalogue, but I kept seeing projects made with them on pinterest so I took another peek.  I took the plunge and bought them, and I promise you I have not been disappointed.  Teamed with my fabulous Scalloped Tag Topper punch, an absolutely essential addition to any craft stash, I have made the following cards.

A colour combination of natural white, blushing bride and crumb cake create a classic palette. Our gold sequin trim, gold bakers twine and basic pearls add a bit of luxury.  Fancy making your own?  Here's what you need -
