Distressed Fresh Cuts!

Hi! Sorry not been around for a while but we went to Ellen's 18th
at the weekend in Surrey, then needed a day to recover from the journey
- the M1 & M25 were a nightmare!!!
Tomorrow I'm going to a training session in Manchester so have
been on a production line this week making "swaps"!!!
This is what I've made.
I've used Soft Suede and Very Vanilla card, Soft Suede ink with
Fresh Cuts and Tiny Tags stamp sets with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch,
Very Vanilla ribbon and Linen Thread.

And here are all the "swaps"!!!

Hopefully I'll be showing you later the swaps I get from other
Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.
That's all for now

SU Play-time

Hi everyone!
Had a fab afternoon yesterday with four friends.
We made a bag like the one I'd made on Julie's (my SU mummy) Craft Day.
Here is the one I made using paper from Night & Day (retiring) and
textured Basic Black card. The handles are attached using a black brad
and a flower from the Filigree Brad set.
A piece of black gingham ribbon (retiring) is attached to the gift card
in the inside pocket. The same ribbon is used along with a clear rhinestone
brad to make the flower on the small gift card in the purse.
The purse is attached to the handle with a piece of silver elastic cord.
I then made this card to finish off the set.
I've also used a piece of card from the Groom Speciality Papers (retiring).
I'm going to send it to a friends daughter for her 21st and
put the present in the bag!
Here we all are with our bags - Lynda, Julie, Angie and Susan.
Well done ladies!!!

I'm Back!!!

Hi - I'm back!!!
Had a fab time touring the country for the last 2 weeks - been to
some places I haven't been to for over 20 years!!!
Some had changed beyond recognition!
Oh, well enough of that. I've missed crafting and tomorrow is my day
- never mind the ironing!!

I decided to cheat a bit by showing you 3 cards I have received over the last
couple of months. Two from my Stampin' Up! mummy - Julie and one from
Jules, my SU baby!!!
In the first card the Polka Dot Ribbon won't be available in the new
In the second card the design papers and the stamp set
- Say it with Scallops won't be in the new catalogue.
Only the card Brocade Blue won't be available.
If you want to buy any of the above items which are retiring at the end
of September then please don't hesitate to contact me.
That's all for now
