Purple Posy thank you card

Hello. I was excited to eventually receive my Purple Posy ink pad. Thankfully the quality issues have been resolved to the satisfaction of Stampin’ Up! and the pad I ordered way back in April is here! So I had to try it out straight way and created this card… I think that most Stampin’ Up! […]

2018-2020 In Colors Birthday card

Hello! Thanks for joining me today. I love the vibrant 2018-2020 In Colors and decided that I wanted to make a super bright Birthday Card using them. Although I opted to exclude Lovely Lipstick so the card may be a bit more suitable for a boy. I also decided to use 2 stamp sets that […]

Grapefruit Grove lip balm holder

Hello. I picked up this lip balm the other day, just because I liked the colours… Obviously a lip balm needs a box, lol.  Then I remembered that I saw a video from The Paper Pixie recently with a tutorial for a nice lip balm box.  So I searched for it and followed it to […]

Big On Birthdays – au natural

The beautiful stamp set Big On Birthdays is retiring soon – boo! This set has a fabulous mix of big and small birthday related stamps and I’ve used all but one of them.  I’ve not yet found an appropriate occasion for a stamp that reads “At least you’re still pretty” LOL. I used one of […]

Have a Birthday Brew! In an all new colour

Last weekend I was chatting with one of my lovely local customers about delivering her new catalogue when she mentioned that it was her husband’s 50th birthday that day.  Naturally I asked if she’d made him a card to celebrate his birthday but she told me no because “he doesn’t like cards” Yikes!! So anyway, […]

Clean & Simple 21st Birthday Card

Today’s card is quite minimal.  I usually add layers to a card but as this one was going in the mail I decided to keep it a bit more simple… Because it’s a more simple card I still wanted it to be extra special so used Shimmery White card stock – I absolutely adore the […]
