Itty Bitty Brights

Made this to show off my new ickle stamp set....and the lovely "Brights" coloured cardstock.......and got my first "likes" by a couple of fellow demonstrators.......am sooooo chuffed! How sad am I?!......am loving all my new stuff........couldn't sleep last night,..... (kept thinking about poor Stripey cat for some reason)....so was "playing" at 3am in the morning! Eeeeek! ......got caught out by my other half tho....he noticed I was missing, and came and found me!.......luckily he thought it was funny! LOL!

Milk Carton

Made my first Milk Carton with my new Big Shot........so cute....and had to use the butterflies again too!
(must remember to show the scale next time......if I remember!)

(poossibly got this from idea on ILWS......will try and find out whom!)

Big Shot!

OMG...finally succumbed to getting one of those cutting embossing machines.....and its just brilliant!......always swore I was into more hand- made things before.....not realizing I can still be creative....and it looks posh too!
Thought I'd share my first card using it......will use a scale thingy next time...because you won't see just how small and cute it is!
Pocket full of Wings

Used the "beautiful wings" embosslit, scallop envelope die (both exclusive to Stampin' Up!), and some yummy brights pattern paper

First Workshop - Virtually

Held my first workshop, and was joined by some of my lovely friends.......and although some of my other lovely friends couldn't make it.....they joined in by adding their orders at their leisure.....otherwise known as a "virtual" workshop.......so we had lots of fun, and those who missed out still got their fabulous Stampin' Up! products......and thanks to them all, my first order was very successful....and I claimed my free stamp set......Magic! So....... Big Thanks to You....and Big Thanks to SU for their gorgeous crafting goodies!

So Many Thanks

Well, have not blogged for a while, as Parents have been a bit poorly, and staying with us.......BUT......had another opportunity to make a quick card! (like I need an excuse!),.......and I have to say, that not only do I not normally do "quick", but I'm often not happy with the result either!........However! with my new SU stash....It's Easy!..........I'm not the world's best crafter, but the more I play, the more I love Stampin' Up!!!!!!!!!!
So many thanks, Pot Pourri, Butterfly punch, Brights paper stack, and some of my own stash (which is very large, and I have to use it up somehow!)

Two-Step Bird

Well, ....I was getting buried under paperwork, and decided I needed a bit of "therapy"!.......so crept off to my craft room again, and had a little play with my superb little bird punch, it is sooooo sweet! It's a bit of a mixture of colours, but, after all .....the fun is in the "playing"!

I {Heart} Hearts

My SU upline "made me" cut up some of my starter pack to make samplers for my workshops! Gosh it was soooo hard to slice into my gooooorrrrgeous cardstock and paper!.......BUT hey ho...every cloud has a silver lining! I now have the excuse to actually USE IT! yummy!.....
Had to make another quick card, so here it is...........
actually used my free hostess set as well, and coloured my precious white ribbon with "perfect plum" ink pad!
