Card swaps from our team training day

Hi there and welcome back to my blog,

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I attended one of our team training days? One of the activities which is always a highlight on these days is swapping. We can choose to participate in as many swap groups as we like, of 6 or 7 people and each group has a theme.  I opted to take part in a swap with the theme "Using DSP" and I thought today I would show you the swaps I received. Out of 7 people, 5 of us chose to make cards and 2 made gift bags.


I have made a video to show the swaps in more detail. Do take a look by clicking HERE or on the image below.

                             

And here are the swaps in close up. Just click on the designers names if you'd like to see more on their blogs.

It's always lovely when a card is decorated inside as well as out.

Jill and Gez Go Crafting - 20th Feb 2019


Hi there, 
Welcome to my blog today and another instalment of "Jill and Gez Go Crafting" where myself and my good friend Gez, of Nigezza Creates, each post projects made by the other on our blogs. 

Meet Gez


Just in case you are new to my blog let me introduce Gez. She has an amazing blog on which she publishes new projects several times a week, with really detailed written instructions and video tutorials. I am sure you will want to check it.

Gez has been very busy producing some fantastic projects over the past two weeks and first off I have chosen these lovely cards, which Gez made for one of our swap groups at our recent team training day. 

Hello Cupcake Stampin Up Saleabration 19



You can read more about this project over on Gez's blog HERE. Gez has, of course, made a video tutorial for you so be sure to give that a watch. 

Next I have chosen another of Gez's swap projects. She made these oh so cute mini handbags. 

Gingham Gala Stampin Up

Take a closer look at this project, including a video tutorial HERE.

And lastly for today I have chosen this fun card, which Gez made for her partner's recent birthday. Most cards I have seen which use this set have been in very bright colours but Gez has gone with a monochrome look which makes it look completely different.

Wood Words Customer Thank You card

Oh my! Well my plans haven't exactly gone to plan this weekend. I am visiting my parents in Norfolk and had everything ready to write my blog posts for the days I am away. And then bam! I have been struck down with a horrible cold and am feeling really rough and sorry for myself. With the result that I have been confined to bed and my parents are looking after me rather than vice versa! So many apologies for being missing in action!

 Any way I have struggled up from my bed to post this little card.


Wood Words thank you Stampin Up

I needed a couple of extra thank you cards for my customers this month and I needed them in a hurry. So this little card was conjured up. Super quick to make but super pretty. I started with a Bermuda Bay card blank (14.8cm x 10.5cm - 6 ins x 4 1/8 ins). Then took a panel of Whisper White (14.3cm x 10cm - 5 3/4 ins x 3 7/8 ins) and stamped the floral stamp from the Wood Words set twice across the middle. I then stamped and punched out the Thank You stamp from Accent Blooms in Bermuda Bay and mounted it in the centre on dimensionals. 


Wood Words Thank You Stampin' Up!

So, short and sweet from me today. Hopefully by the time you read this I'll be feeling better. But for now I'm back off to bed! 

Hope your weekend has been better than mine. Hopefully be back to business this week!
