Anyone for Ice Cream - Ink & Share Blog hop

Well hello there,

I am so pleased that you have stopped by to visit my latest blog post for the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop.  You may have started here or came to me through another page. This months theme is to use 'A Punch.'


Before I start a scrpabook layout I will always doodle on a pieece of paper how I think I want the page to look, for the first time I think I followed it completely, although the added texture to the ice cream was an after thought.  

I had forgotten how much I liked using Stampin' Up!'s Shimmery Embossing Paste and this just worked perfectly on the the top of the ice cream.


For ages I have wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch but never got round to it until this week.  I was also very brave when it came to cutting up the photographs and this was done by using another of their punches called Tailored Tag, I loved the effect it had.

The background of this page was created using the Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue ink pad and then the sprinkles stamp and Smoky Slate ink pad added extra colour and definition.  As always i used the Foam Adhesive Sheets and Playful Alphabet dies for creating the title.

So now I just want to thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created and it is now time for you to carry on with this blog hop and head on over to have a look at what Gez is working on.

My remake of something in the new Annual Catalogue

Hello and I hope you are well,

Just want to say thank you for visiting my blog as part of the Ink.Stamp.Share Monthly Blog Hop and I hope you enjoy seeing what a selection of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have created as we share with you our projects that we have created for this months theme 'Case the Catty!'  We have all CASE'D from the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

I knew instantly what i was going to CASE as I had absolutely fell in love with this card when I saw it in the catalogue it was what had make me buy the Flowers of Friendship bundle from pages 78 and 148.

  
Under the Designer Series Paper there is a piece of the new In Colour Shimmer Vellum which I actually went 'Wow' when I saw how it looked after it had been embossed.  As you can see I have shown you both sides of the embossed vellum so you can see how different it can look.

I am now going to carry n casing the catalogue as it has really inspired me into casing other projects from the new Annual Catalogue.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop and head on over to have a look at what Nicole working on.

Time to get my craft on with Tic Tac Toe

Hello there,

Thank you for joining me as part of the Casually Crafting Design Team where you will be visiting Demonstrators from around the world as we show you what we have created for this month's 'Tic, Tac, Toe!' design challenge.

As this month was a 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge, I chose to do the first column which was 'use a punch,' 'floral' and 'Granny Apple Green.'

I chose to use the Symmetry Stems Border punch along with the In Symmetry stamp set for this card along with the co-ordinating Designer Series Paper.

Here is my completed card, I truly enjoyed doing this challenge.  It took some thinking though as I was unsure which line to go for.


A close up of the card so you can see the layers that I applied after fussy cutting (you either love or hate it) and by adding Stampin' Up! mini dimensionals.





I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Casually Crafting Design Team blog hop and head on over to have a look at what everyone is creating using this months challenge.

Time to Grab Five and get my scrap on!

  

Welcome to my long overdue post,

Hello and thank you for taking the time to stop by my longe overdue blog post, on a previous post I explained that the reason for my lack of posting was due to me reopening my craft shop called The Crafty Corner Shop after being closed for over one year due to UK Lockdown.

It has been a great feeling to finally relocate my crafting mojo after over two months of only essential crafting, so you can imagine how excited I am to get scrapbooking for this blog post.  Here is what I created...


As you can see I have managed to tick all five of the 'Grab 5' requirements (although in the big picture I managed to lose a Metallic Pearl but it is in the pic below.

The title 'Round and Round the Garden' was created using Stampin' Up! Playful Alphabet dies.


Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Happy Crafting!

Time to say Thank You

Hello and welcome,

It has been way too long since I last wrote a blog post but life here in the UK kind of got rather busy so what better way to get blogging again but with the Demonstrator Training Programme Blog Hop.

I run my own craft shop called The Crafty Corner Shop which is where I hold classes and workshops and I get to share my love of crafting with some wonderful people.

In addition to this when the UK Lockdown restrictions started to lift I decided to open as The Crafty Corner Cafe every Friday.  


For this month's blog hop, I chose to use this card that I thoroughly enjoyed crafting as part of my Cards & 3D class yesterday.  


I fell in love with the Hand Penned Suite as soon as I saw it so I knew I had to use the Memory and More Cards and Envelopes as the base and combine it with th gorgeous Art in Bloom stamp set, dies and embossing folder. 

Just want to say thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your blog hop and head on over to have a look at what everyone is working on.
