A Little More.....

I am coming to the end of my Six Sided Sampler cards, but have 2 pretty designs to show you today.

Firstly we have a slider card, using the lovely Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and ribbon.  When you pull the ribbon the inside of the card appears with your chosen greeting.

Now there are some other stamp sets used here but can you see the clever way the greeting is displayed?  To achieve this effect first stamp the hexagon image and then punch a circle out using a post it note.  Make sure you punch where the sticky side is, then position this on the stamped image and punch out using the circle punch.  Next punch out the stamped image using the hexagon punch.  The greeting was stamped onto a piece of cardstock and then we used the hexagon punch to fish tail the end.

Other stamp sets used were Chalk Talk, Gorgeous Grunge, Tape It and Flower Shop.

The second card uses Coastal Cabana and Smokey Slate

More Six Sided Sampler ideas

I have some more class ideas to show you using my stamp set of the month.

Firstly we have shown a different way to use the punch which creates a cute little envelope.  I had seen this idea used on the Internet.

This idea is a great way to use up those small scraps of cardstock that seem to clutter up our work spaces!

I love the black and cream ensemble, and a matching envelope was made using the score board and diagonal plate.  Check back in a few days to see our new product which makes envelopes so easy.  I have fallen in love with this new product.

Introducing my grandson Kobe

I thought it was time to share my new grandson with you all.

Naturally mummy and daddy have wanted to keep Kobe private and Alice has been so dedicated to not share him on her facebook page, but I have been given permission to share Kobe with you all.

This photo was taken a few days ago, when his feeding tube had been removed, so now he is not attached to any wires.....he just needs to remember to wake for his feeds, as he is so content to sleep.

Six Sided Sampler

Each Month I try to concentrate on one stamp set, so that I can show my ladies the versatility of the stamp set, and also show them that it is a must have to add to their collection.

Last Month it was the Six Sided Sampler and the matching hexagon punch.  By purchasing the two items together as a bundle you can save yourself 15% on the total price.

Here is one of the cards we made

My colour combo was pear piazza and island indigo.  The papers are from Gingham Garden and I feel they give this project a fun fresh look.  We also used the honeycomb embossing folder.

As a matching gift we then made a post it note holder.

Now I am off to set up my craft area as I have two ladies coming this morning to make the above projects.

Carol and Maggie have been so patient as I had to cancel their class last month, and then last week Carol was poorly, so it will be good to see them today.

Back soon X

Good Morning


I hope I manage to remember how to post LOL it's been so long.

My daughter's baby Kobe continues to do well and we hope that he will be home soon.  Alice is now staying in hospital with him, so she is taking on his feeds 24/7 which I think will be a shock to the system.

A new baby boy

Good morning

I have been absent for so long....but after many visits to the hospital with my daughter, she finally gave birth to a little baby boy on 30th September.  He is almost 6 weeks early and weighed 3lb 10ozs.  He is in intensive care but doing well.

Alice is coping well after an emergency c-section but is missing have her baby with her, although he is one floor down from her at the hospital and she can visit anytime.

I will be trying to get back to work next week, but also doing hospital visits, if you need anything please get in touch and I will get back to you asap.

Right I am off to do a little housework, before getting some photo's developed and then popping into the hospital.
