A Crafty Visit With My Upline

Sorry it's been a while since my last blog but I've had a couple of busy weekends the fruits of which I'd love to share with you.

A couple of weeks ago I visited my upline Vicky for a few days. I had a lovely time playing with the kids and getting lots of crafting in. I supported her and another team member Georgie to run a class and thought I would share with you the projects from the day.

I am not much of a scrapbooker but had a go at a layout which I've still not found a photo for yet

The base is Whisper White 12"X12" stamped using Mixed Bunch in Sahara Sand and Pool Party. On top of this is an A4 sheet of Pool Party card stock with 3 blossoms punched out. The 6"X6" DSP is from Attic Boutique and the top blossoms have also been punched out of this DSP along with the Boho Blossoms for the centres. The bottom blossoms they are stamped in Daffodil Delight and punched and the centres are stamped in Soft Suede  and punched with the 3/4" circle punch finally I have knotted a piece of Twill Tape ribbon.

We also made set of cards plus holder

Again the stampset used was Mixed Bunch and the co-ordinating Blossom Punch. The DSP for this project is the one exclusive to hostess Cheerful Treat. The ribbon is the Pleated Satin Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz and we have also used Clear Rhinestone Brads and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for extra detail.

Lastly we made a card and matching box (although I haven't got around to finishing the box yet)

The card stock is Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose. Stamp set is Apothecary Art and we also the co-ordinating Labels Collection framelits dies to create the 'buckle' and matching card insert.
When I get around to making the box it uses the same card colours and has an Apothecary Art embellishment.

Hope you liked
