I have been a bad blogger mainly because I have been on holiday to the Sandals Resort in St Lucia to celebrate my Special Birthday. We had a wonderful time my son and his girlfriend joined us and my son surprised us all by Proposing to his girlfriend on the Beautiful Beach at Sunset. It was a wonderful surprise and made a great ending to my Birthday and the Holiday. A Holiday never to forget.
I intend to make up for not posting for so long by upload a card each day with the new stamp sets from the catalogue. I hope to receive these in the next day or so.

I made 8 christmas cards and a box using less than half of the Christmas Jingle Scrapbooking Kit from the new catalogue. What good value Stampin Up Kits are.

Satchel/ Bag

I saw a few of these Satchels made up and just had to try one to-day I decided not to add the handles on this one so it is more of a bag which can hold a few cards that you could give as a gift. This design was made by one of the very talented ladies on ILWS and I just love it. I will up load another project tomorrow. I have been a bad blogger lately but I will try to get back to weekly updates. I am doing weekly card making and scrapbook class in my home here in Cranfield if you are interested in these please contact me I will put up the details of the classes soon.

Card File

I made this card file using a Lauren Meader template I just love all her templates they are just so easy to understand. I hope to run a workshop to include this project in July. If you are interested in my classes please email me or contact me via my blog.

New cards

Here are a few cards I made on my return from holiday in Dubai. I made these and sent them to my son's girlfriend who finds it difficult to get nice greetings cards out there. I also sent her a Birthday Book I made at a fellow SU demonstrators workshop.

I covered and decorated the Heart shaped tin in SU designer papers and filled it with pink crafty goods for a friend( less Fattening).

Hi everyone sorry I missed posting last week I was busy making all these Easter goodies.
