A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way


A little kindness goes a long way is the super sentiment in the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. 

It's perfect for my thank you cards and gift for my Stamper's 6 in my Virtual Hostess Club. I like to put a little something extra into their bags from me. 

I currently have 2 places available in my new club starting October.  Let me know if this is something of interest to you. 

For my cards and little boxes I've used Park Lane Designer Series Papers. I love that Stampin' Up! write the colours on the back of the packs so it's easy to match up your card stock, ink and embellishments. It was fun to stamp directly onto the designer paper using Kinda Eclectic.  The butterflies were punched out using Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly. I tied up my boxes using Linen Thread. 

I've a lovely new follower - Kim - welcome and I hope you visit often. 

We have a wet day today after a lovely weekend.  Yesterday we went to a park in Aberdeen and chanced letting our dog off the lead.  She's quite bold and isn't great at coming back.  Sure enough she chased the ball, caught it and took off into the distance.  A streak of black fluff. After having a good run she finally swung back round towards us.  There's no chance of catching her, she's just too fast.  But that didn't stop us saying to the kids to go after her.  Well they need some exercise too!! 

Have a good day.  xx

Welcome to your New Home


Here's a simple super quick but sweet New Home card. 

I used two new sets from the annual catalogue.  They are very special sets because they are in the hostess section.  I love so many of the new hostess sets this year.  

I cut my card so that the front was shorter than the back.  Then stamped this funky tree and birdies from Nuts About you.  I then stamped the house on the inside from Life's Adventure. 

There's a super deal on until the end of October for Hostesses.  If you have sales of £200 then you receive a free stamp set - Good Greetings.  Sentiments are always a boost.  

I have 3 places available on my Virtual Hostess Club starting in October.  I'm sure if you've looked at the Autumn/Winter catalogue you'll have a wish list as big as mine!  The Hostess Club is a great way of gradually building up your stash and you get to be hostess for one of the months. Sound good?  Drop me a line.

Wetlands at the Beach


I do like to be beside the seaside!  

This is our challenge for LIM this week, anything to do with the seaside or a nautical theme and of course clean and simple. 

I've gone with a Hardwood background in Sahara Sand on a Naturals card base.  I made my beach using Work of Art and So Saffron paired with Soft Sky.  Wetlands is stamped in Marina Mist and my little scene is also mounted onto Marina Mist. 

As it happens I was down at Aberdeen Beach today.  Took my daughter and her chum, my son, father and Jess (our dog).  It was a full car!  Sadly my father can't walk very well so we had a wheelchair for him and my son had his long board.  My daughter and her chum went off to meet another friend and go bowling.  So that left me to push the wheelchair and walk the dog along the esplanade, trying not to tip my father out of the chair by hitting bumps and avoid running over the dog at the same time against a strong wind. When we went for coffee at one of the cafes my back was soaking and not because it was roasty toasty!  However I have to say it was very warm at 5 o'clock when we headed back to the car.  I think all had a fun afternoon!!  

I hope you have had a good weekend too whatever you got up to. xx

Stampin' Up!'s White Christmas


White Christmas in August??!!  Yep it is in the card making world because it's never too early to start your Christmas cards.

Tomorrow is the launch of Stampin' up!'s Autumn/Winter catalogue and this is a sneak peak of White Christmas.

I love it.  It was at the top of my list as soon as I saw it. 

I've followed the sketch at less is more this week.  I stamped the trees in Smoky Slate, the Polar Bear in Soft Sky and the birdie in Real Red.  This set is one of the new photopolymer stamps so was very easy to line up the images. 

The sentiment comes from a free set - Good Greetings - a free stamp set when you host a party reaching £200 in sales. There's loads of handy sentiments in it. 

You can be a hostess several ways.  Have friends round for an actual party, collect the qualifying orders, place a qualifying customer order, or be part of the new Virtual Hostess Club and you'll be hostess for one of the months.  I have 3 places available so get in touch soon if this appeals to you. 

We had another sunny day today but tonight walking the dog, I needed my big jacket on.  Just to remind us that we are heading towards Autumn!

Blended Bloom


Blended Bloom is a gorgeous large flower stamp that shows off Stampin' Up!'s new alcohol markers Blendabilities.  I used it here for my thank you cards for my ladies in my Virtual Hostess Club. 

It was super to have a play with the different colours and have a practice.  I added a little gold sparkle to the middles.  

The blooms were cut out and mounted onto black card stock.

I think they make an impact just on their own.
