According to the heart ...........

Our hearts tell us who is special in our lives and what better way to show that person than a special card.

I got asked to make several of these special cards for Valentines, and now that it's passed I can show you some of them.

I like to create something different for each customer and this is one of them.

 the front.


Sorry the colours are not great, but I used the lovely gorgeous Summer Starfruit and Raspberry ripple for this one, along with the lovely Crumb cake.  (Gosh these make me hungry, sounds like some fantastic dessert)

The banner punch and Banner Blast stamp set are free during the Sale-a-bration period, which ends on 31st March 2014.  I used them to create the banner which went from the front of the card and all the way throughout to the back.  The background was created using the lovely Gorgeous Grunge.  This is just such a versatile stamp.  

I of course used our wonderful Envelope Punch Board to create the matching envelope.

So if you would like a bespoke card for a loved one, or you would like to be able to create something this cute, then please contact me to find out more.

Don't forget you don't have to see me in person to order from me, simply go to the button on the side of the blog and click through to my on-line shop.  You can find all the products used to create this card and many more and also benefit from the fantastic offers we have during sale-a-bration.

Ella and Ollie

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to do an 8th birthday party for the lovely Ella.

Her friends were very funny and gorgeous and her little brother Ollie, stole my daughter's heart.  He's just so cute and joined in everything his big sister was doing ...............

Ella chose Butterflies and flowers as her theme and the In-colours 2013/14.  The gorgeous palette of pistachio pudding, strawberry slush, baked brown sugar, crisp cantaloupe and finally costal cabana really lent themselves well to this theme.

The table was set and the kids sat down ready to play ..........

Mum, Jan got to join in as well.  Everyone had a great time and the girls got to play with some of the amazing stamp sets that Stampin Up sell.  Ollie, meanwhile played with the fabulous Zoo Babies set and created his own masterpieces with the help of my Aimee and his Mum Jan.

I had a fantastic time and so did all the kids, and Jan as well.  I would like to thank Jan and Simon for inviting me into their home and to all the lovely little ones for making it such a great afternoon.

I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as I did.

To any of you reading this if you would love your kids to experience this kind of party then please give me a ring to discuss your requirements.
