Quick & Easy

This is a great Quick Card that doesn't require too many tools! However, it also looks great blinged up with a bit of ribbon, glitter or rinestone brads.
I used the Cupcakes wheel and the Happy Everything stamp set. I love Kiwi Kiss and Always Artichoke together & think this could pass as a male card too.
I have a Quick Cards class on Saturday morning and there are still places available.... give me a call or e-mail to book in!

More Circle Circus

This is the folding 12x12 layout we made as one of our Make & Takes at convention in May. I used Circul Circus to add detail to the Baja Breeze cardstock, as well as to embelish the two metal edge tags, which I've now decided are on the 'must have' wish list! Emily's dress matches these stamps perfeclty - this layout really suits a retro style. I've also invested in the Trio Flower Punch since we made this page as it looks great with these stamps and also matches a couple of other sets I have.
I don't have any photos of this project all folded up, but I'm planning to make a similar one soon so I'll post better photos then...

Gorgeous Gifts

I love this acetate box - it's great for holding anything from chocolates to baby clothes and looks really professional. I've used Circle Circus for the gift tag... Stamp with Riding Hood Red Ink on Red Riding Hood Red Cardstock and punch with Scallop Circle. Stamp with Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White cardstock and punch with 1 1/4" circle. Stamp Chocolate Chip on Whisper White cardstock and cut out the flower design using papersnips. Layer these together and then make a fake double brad using Crystal Effects.
This was a project from my last Fancy Folds Class. If you'd like to join in the next class just call or e-mail me to book your place - see my class schedule to the right.

Circle Circus

Ok, so now I've posted a few projects using Trecdy Trees I thought I'd move in to show you a few projects using Circle Circus - another really flexible set.This card is one we made at convention using Circle Circus and a whole lot of colours - Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Pacific Point, Bashful Blue and Kiwi Kiss It's not easy to use that many colours with no neutral tones and have it look so well co-ordinated, but the matching Kiwi Kiss ribbon ties it all together nicely!
I've also used this set for 12x12 layouts and a cute gift box so I'll post those projects over the next few days....
In the meant time if you would like to purchase this set, or any other Stampin Up! Project please don't hesitate to contact me....
