Lilypad Lake birthday card

Hi there,

Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday whether or not you were celebrating Father's Day. I do appreciate that all these "special" days can be difficult depending on your circumstances. I'm very lucky to still have my dad at nearly 90, but he is not in good health.

Anyway, on to today's project. It will look very familiar - it is almost exactly the same as the Father's Day card I showed you yesterday, except this time I made it for a birthday - after all there is a limit to how many Father's day cards I need!


Lilypad Lake Stampin Up

I have used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. This is fast becoming my favourite, go to, birthday greeting.

And I have coloured the boats slightly differently this time, using the Light Real Red blend and the Light Balmy Blue blend. You can see them in close up below.

Just before I go a couple of quick reminders. I still have a few copies of the new catalogue and would love to find a good home for them. Would you like one? Just drop me an email at jilldchapman@gmail.com.



And lastly, I'm still happy to offer places in my paper share - 24 6" x 12" sheets of different patterned papers for only £12.50 including postage. Again, just email me at jilldchapman@gmail.com. Payment can be made by cheque, Paypal or bank transfer.



Back soon. Have a great day,

Happy Father's Day card with Lilypad Lake

Hi everyone,

Many apologies for my unexpected absence for the last couple of days. Life just gets in the way sometimes!

So today is Father's Day here in the UK and I'm here to show you the card I have sent my dad. Sadly I can't be with him today - he lives 170 miles away - and hasn't been feeling too well of late so I hope he has a good day and that my card cheers him up!


Lilypad Lake Stampin Up

I used the sailing boats in the Lilypad Lake stamp set for my card, along with the wavy stripes background.
I die cut the boats with the die from the stamp set and then used the banner die to mount them on - that's a really useful little die!


Lakeside dies Stampin Up

I have made a video tutorial to show you how I made the card which you can watch by CLICKING HERE or on the image below:



As I often do, I did a little bit of decoration in the inside too.

Hope you like my card.

The Project Share Project - cards for men!


Hi everyone,



Welcome to another Thursday and the Project Share Project where I get to showcase projects made by some of my crafty friends. 

Today, as Father's Day is so very nearly upon us, I thought I would feature cards for men.

First today is Verity of Inky Butterfly who has used one of my favourite new bundles from the new catalogue - Above the Clouds. I am such a sucker for a stamp set with a matching punch. Here is Verity's card:

Next today is Heather of Stamp with Nellie. Heather has used another new stamp set called "A Good Man" which is another set which is great for male cards.

And bringing up the rear today is Gez of Nigezza Creates. Gez has used a whole range of different products on her card - the sentiment is from the Geared Up Garage set.

Jill & Gez Go Crafting - June 12th


Hi everyone,

Hi everyone and welcome to another "Jill and Gez Go Crafting" when myself and my good friend Gez give each other a bit of exposure on our blogs. 

Gez has an amazing blog with loads of fabulous inspiration and really detailed tutorials - just hop over to https://www.nigezza.co.uk/. And also a brilliant YouTube channel which you can view HERE

The first project I am showcasing today is another in Gez's "storage" series. Previously Gez has made containers for dies, embellishments, ribbons, embossing folders..... and today we have a storage solution for all our different adhesives. This time Gez has used the lovely new Follow Your Art papers to decorate her box.

You can read all about Gez's project, watch her video tutorial and get all the measurements you need by CLICKING HERE.

Next is another 3D project - a really cute little covered Post It note pad. This time Gez has used the new Mosaic Mood paper.

Read all about this project by CLICKING HERE. These were little gifts that Gez sent to the customers who had shopped with her in May. And if you keep scrolling through that post you will see what else they received.

Yes a beautiful handmade card and a prettily packaged product gift. As I said Gez featured these in the same blog post as above HERE

Hope you enjoyed seeing Gez's projects today. I'll be back with more in two weeks!
