InspireINK July blog hop - Colour Challenge


Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Today it is once again time for the InspireInk monthly blog hop and for July we have a colour challenge - the colours are Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee and Soft Succulent. 

I have to admit I struggled a bit with these colours - they wouldn't have been my first choice but here is the card I came up with.


I used the Hand Penned Petals stamp set with the coordinating dies. I stamped the image with Memento Black and then watercoloured it with one of our Water Painters and ink from the appropriate stamp pads. You can see better in this close up.


The background patterned paper is from the Pansy Petals pack and is a really nice subtle pattern in Bumble Bee. 


I'll be back very soon with a video to show you how I made my card but meanwhile, please click on all the links below to the other blogs in our hop today. There are some amazing projects to see - you won't want to miss any!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Customer Thank You gifts - Post It covers

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog today.  Every month I send out thank you packages to everyone who has shopped with me the previous month. Everyone receives a handmade card and handmade gift, plus if they have used my Monthly Shopping Code (see below) they will receive a product gift too. Today I want to show you the handmade gifts I sent out this week for June orders. 


These are Post It note holders - just simple covers holding a little pack of 3" x 3" Post It notes. 


I decorated them with papers from the Pattern Party Pack and used several different colours of coordinating cardstock. I made a whole pile of these but forgot to take photos before I packaged them up and put them in the post.


I used two dies from the Tasteful Labels die set and a stamp from Sweet Strawberry for the label on front.



If you'd like to see how I made these (they are so super easy to make!) you can watch my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.

Thanks so much for popping in to see me.

Stampin' Up! 2021 Aug - December Mini catalogue haul

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. No project from me today, but I do have an exciting video for you. As you might know, the new August-December mini catalogue, containing everything you need for your festive crafting, (as well as autumn, harvest, Halloween etc) will be live for customers to order from on August 3rd.


At the same time, our second Salebration promotion of the year goes live (until the end of September). This gives everyone a chance to earn free products with any order over £45.


As demos, we were able to see the catalogue early and more importantly, place a preorder of products.

My video today shows you all the products I bought in my "haul". To watch, just CLICK HERE or on the image below:


I am very happy with my haul of products and can't wait to find some time to "play" with them. Watch out for lots of projects using them coming soon!
