Crafty Inklings Spring Summer Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the second Crafty Inklings Blog Hop. Today we have a lovely group of ladies showcasing projects using the wonderful products from the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue.

If this is your first stop on our blog hop then welcome, or you may have joined me from Barbara's wonderful blog. Either way grab a cuppa and enjoy your time browsing. It would be great if you had a moment to leave a comment or two as you work your way around the hop, I know the ladies would love to hear from you.

My project today uses the beautiful stamp set So in Love and the coordinating designer paper Falling in Love. I have a number of weddings coming up in the next couple of months so decided to make a pretty Congratulations card and matching gift box using the window box thinlits dies.

Here I changed the box slightly to house an electric tealight, which would look so beautiful on a wedding table setting.

 The next blog in our hop is Sandra's Stamp & Craft Studio, enjoy and thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Stampin'

Crafty Inklings Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my brand new blog, thank you for visiting. Having been away from crafting for a while I decided it would be good to have a fresh start. I am so lucky to live in the beautiful city of Norwich, thus Stampin' and the City.

What a better way to begin than with a blog hop, the first of many from a talented group of ladies. Sandra's creations were wonderful, I really need to revisit my wish list! The card I am sharing today uses all new products from the Spring Summer catalogue and a freebie from Saleabration. 

Beautiful You  and Delicate details pair so beautifully giving a wonderful feminine touch to this emboss resist technique. Of course I couldn't help myself and had to pull out the new watercolour pencils. They are so creamy and a dream to use.

Now it's time to hop along to the lovely Sue's blog, enjoy!

Happy Stampin'

60th Birthday

My share today is a 60th birthday card and memory album that I made for a friend a while back. I really loved making this project and think it would be gorgeous updated with botanical blooms.

Thank you for visiting my new and very empty blog, I look forward to sharing lots more with you.

Happy Stampin'
