Friday Tip of the Week -


So this week I have been working with designer paper all week. But how do you store yours?

I love the circle tab punch, I use it at home for notebooks and labels..... that sounds a bit sad! But with the designer paper packs it comes into its own.....
I take the list of colours from the back of the packet and I punch a label then attach then down the side of the packet. I do store my designer paper in 12 x 12 cello bags, I really struggle with the plastic ones it comes in.


PLUS if your scraps box looks like mine its a great way of using a few more up!


 I have stuck them on with tombo.

A bit of fussy cutting.....

Tonights card is again using the Petal Promaenade designer paper.A quick post and a quick card.

 Its one of those papers thats not really a background paper, it comes with circular sprigs and lengths of sprigs. I have fussy cut as thats something I enjoy.


The overall design is inspired by my friend Sarah-Jane at card and a cuppa blogspot on Friday 24th August.  I have used a different colour way and sentiment but the same design.

The fussy cutting is very easy, you don't have to do all the intricate bits. The grey srtip is the reverse side of the designer paper.



Does this get a thumbs up?
oops forgot to post this pic first. This is where the wreath has been cut from.

Who loves a little box, particularly one with a difference.....

I have to say photographing a little box is not easy and I'm not sure my skills with a camera do this little box justice!

For the base colour I have used Flirty Flamingo. I love this shade of pink, it is a real pink pink! Then another of the beautiful sheets of Petal Promenade designer paper.


How lovely is that, then when you lift the lid....


open the leaves ....


decorated on the inside.....


Isn't that a beautiful way to give a small gift, chocolates or jewellery.

Pretty in Pink.

I can't say this is my favourite of the Petal Promenade designer paper because I love them all. 



A very simple card featuring both sides of one of the sheets of paper. The Powder Pink shimmer ribbon works well even thought the card is the new Petal pink. 



 A little flower and the sentiment stamped from the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' stamp set and a pearl added to the flower centre.  The circles are die cut with the stitched framelits.

Product of the week


 Its Monday and I have the most amazing product of the week for you. Its picture heavy so please be patient, particularly if your  internet is as slow as mine.

I want to show you in detail the 'Petal Promenade' designer paper. The Stampin'Up catalogue never does the designer papers justice. They are always much better in reality than in the catalogue, probably something to do with the small photographs they have to use.
I love this paper and I have so many beautiful makes to show you this week alongside the feature posts.

Sheet 1- All the 'pinks'. The first picture shows both sides of the paper with the new Petal Pink card, re inker and bakers twine, blushing bride pink card and ink, and powder pink card and ribbon........all the pinks!







































Sheet 2 -  A few shades of Peach with Pink. Grapefruit Grove ink pad and Petal pink with re inker and the silver and petal pink bakers twine.


 The marble on the reverse.
Sheet 3 -  Peach and green. Grateful Grove and Mossy meadow. Love the 'bokeh'  effect on the reverse.





Sheet 4 - Frames and foil, this is so unusual. One side has square and rectangular frames, also one long edge of flowers. The reverse of the paper looks like screwed up foil. The copper trim matches it beautifully. I am so looking forward to creating something with these.





























Sheet 5 Cabbages and flowers with pink marble.  The colour palette on this is quite different but still beautiful. Mossy meadow, Tranquil Tide,  and the lovely blackberry bliss.



























Sheet 6 - A sheet of circular wreaths and linear flowers. The reverse is slate grey but quite textured.
This sheet poses more of a challenge but it is so pretty.



So which is your favourite or do you need a full packet? Every day this week I will post a make using this set of designer papers.

Non craft related but......

Four weeks ago today my middle son Matthew got married. It was amazing day, we were outside all day, in the woods for the ceremony then in a field for the celebration. It was festival themed with ideas taken from the Glastonbury festival. It was very much not a traditional wedding!

The four men in my life.  The groom in the waistcoat.


The lovely bridesmaids with the beautiful  bride.


The bride coming into the ceremony



After the ceremony. 


The family



The day after.... The hot tub wasn't even switched on it was so hot they all felt a cold tub was a better idea!. Not me.

It was the most amazing weekend.
One last pic of the happy couple.....
