A Cup Of Thanks

Morning all! Hope you are all keeping well. Sadly I've just recovered from some horrible bug which left me without my voice. My parents thought Christmas had come early, they really enjoyed teasing me about it. They soon regretted it when I recovered this morning. I didn't shut up. Finally started to feel better today, thankfully.

The card today is using the DSP Tea for Two (129311), which has to be one of my favourites! Using the circular design with the Island Indigo and So Saffron. The card didn't turn out how I wanted exactly but when the products are as good of quality as SU's it always works out in the end. The image is from the stamp set Morning Cup (120489), such a cute liner stamp set perfect for though of you who like to colour or paper piercing. I took the sentiment from another tea set though which is Tea Shoppe (125547). Over all it's become a cute card however the black board is to dominating for the card. Change that and I'll be happy. Not that I'm overly fussy.

Today I have my This&That workshop which I'm so excited for! Will be such a good day! Will let you know how it goes I'm sure! I've really started to enjoy using it and just making a crafting mess! I'll so the too pages I made about my trip to Birmingham in another post this week. It's still offer till the 31st. After this time it'll still be available to purchase as individual items just not as the bundle with the 15% off.

I have something exciting to say as well... I've made a YouTube video! AHHH! Please excuse my voice being very husky and rough, it's down to the sore throat which I'm sure in future videos. The video is of the Monogram Gift Bag.

Now time is running out sadly for you to claim the EXTRA £25 on top of the original £130 of product of your choice. The £155 will only cost you £99. This is a WOW offer! Don't miss it! 
If you would like to talk to me about anything to do with Stampin' Up! Or just for a chat please drop me  a message on the details on the side bar and I'll get back to you soon.
Hope the rest of you day is lovely, unlike the weather!

Monogrammed Party Bag

Morning/ afternoon! (depending where you are viewing from)

Oh I have been so busy! Again I've been asked for serial baby card which I need to get on with and start making. On a personal note I would like to tell you about an experience I had on Wednesday night. On the 22nd May my franchises store all got together to go out for an evening. It was hel
d at a local night club and because it was my older brother who arrange the evenings had to help with a few things. One thing I didn't know about was my new little friend you can see in the picture! Isn't she lovely!

Now onto the little gift bag I made, it was originally for a baby for my sisters friend however something else was arranged instead. Therefore at my next workshop which is Tuesday the lovely ladies who are attending will have these as a treat. I will however use their initial instead of the B demonstrated here for Baby. I a, so excited for this event and is going to be such a good day! I'll be sure to share photos with you. I used the the First Edition DSP (121878) and the letter is using the Broadsheet Alphabet (120585). Have you noticed how cute the box is? Pop over here to view a video on how to make one. Thank you Michelle Last for the video!

Now onto something really exciting! You are able to place your Stampin' Up! Orders online! 24 hours 7 days a week. Yes this is exciting! I've been working on the button to go on my blog for days and still working on my SU site however Its coming along nicely.
It's so simple to order. You just pop over and everything is in there own categories making it easy to work your way around. If you don't know what the name of the stamp set is that fine every item has a picture clearly showing what you are buying.
It's not just for shopping, you have my calendar on there so you know when I'm free to hold a workshop or a party. See other project that come across and inspire me etc. It's a great way to get connect with a demonstrator and understand the world of SU more clearly. Use my lovely button to take you there! It needs clicking!
I hope you are all having a lovely day! I'll be off to work later! Wish me luck.

New Baby

Afternoon everyone, doesn't everything feel ago right now? I'm lucky to have only had been scheduled to work fewer days the last 2 weeks which mean I have a lot more time to myself and craft! Which is always good (ignore my cries when it comes to pay day).

Before I start with today's card just a reminder about the event I will be holding at my home on the 28th. Yes as I'm sure you have guessed I'm on about the This&That event! I'm so excited and I hope you are too. It's a small cost of £35 which includes everything in the This&That bundle (133905) and you are able to use other card and inks which I have to use. I hope too see you the and the deadline for booking is this Tuesday. If you are unable to attend but would like the bundle for its collective price of £29.24, please just pop me a call, text or email me. My details will be posted below.

Now onto the card, loads of my friends and friends of friends are having babies! Now I'm the first to go 'Aww' to a little baby but when it come to making cards etc I've found that I didn't really have any baby stamp sets. Straight away I had a little panic but I found a stamp set I've had forever! And that's the Easy Events (123225) straight away I knew that I wanted it punched out and all the colours I wanted to use! This one is I made for a baby boy and its cute. I didn't want to add to much detail to the card but the First Edition DSP (121878) just finishes it off. I also added the 'B is for Baby' stamped image on the inside however I forgot to take a picture before I gave it to my friend. Sorry!

O is for One

Evening all! Oh do I have a lot to say, yes, that's more than normal before someone says it. Yesterday I spent the day in Telford for the regional training day. Firstly it was just nice to see all the lovely demonstrators there. What really touched my heart was the demonstrators who came and spoke to me, your kind words have truly encouraged me to carry on doing what I love! Please stay in touch my new friends.

That leads me onto my next point... Which I've just forgotten. Bare with me... Nope nothing.

Next then I'm sure you are all wanting to see the cards I made for my swaps. In exchanged I received some lovely cards and 3D objects which are just too cute for word! Some I'll be using parts in my future projects. Mine are in 6 colours which are- Real Red, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie. Just so bright and just happy colours!


I simple just swaps the colours around for each card and they all look co-ordinated with one another and will be making a tag or even some skittle holders. The colours would look great!

We had lessons on 'How to' with loads of techniques and loads of spoilers! One spoiler I can't not wait for! Been wanting it to happen for a long time! That is all your getting from me!

Hope you like my swaps and I'll be back with what I made using the left overs and everything else I create!

This&That Title Page

Morning all, hope you are keeping well and have made most of the sun rays! Sadly I have not so I'll have to fake bake it. But keep that a secret?

I was so lucky to receive my NEW love This&That kit yesterday lunch time. If I hadn't of had a hospital appointment then I would have got right down to crafting. However this wasn't the way (sad face). Once I was home other you couldn't see the floor, you had the brown packing paper hanging from the lights and parcel tape in my hair. Pretty image I know.
After spending a least a hour drooling over the paper and pages in the journal I started to craft! It's so lovely. I manage to craft and as it is the opening page I wanted to create a type of 'This book belongs to..', with out that stamp however I used a picture of myself instead and added my date of birth. I have a chuckle to myself with the way it was termed.

I am so excited for the party I'm holding on the 28th May to view and have a play with the kit. Please visit my Facebook to view the event created. It cost £35 and includes all 5 items of the kit and lunch. It promised to a an exciting day and event.

Or if you are really loving the kit like myself, purchase it as part of your starter kit and include the matching Inks, some ribbons and extra card? And receive 30% all your order in the first month with 20% off from there on. Please follow this link to view my journey and how to join.

Hope you all have a lovely day and please get in touch if you would like to talk. I'd be great to hear from you.

Afternoon all! Hope your all well and enjoying the sun. I'm hoping I get some crafting done today however that down to weather I'm able to leave my bed or not. It truly is horrible being poorly although it does seem like I'm on the mend. Its been a busy week for me with work and going to college for all the meetings but I'm sure now this is what I need in life to be happy! Role on September I'm so excited!

Now onto today's card which is a very simple and clean cut card. I find simplistically the best way to go when dealing with men's cards. And with fathers just over a month away best start creating especially when you have 17 to make like myself! Well 16 now. Also I like to keep with browns blues and greens, especially for men's cards I should say.

I used the Dapper Dad Stamp Set (129198) which us found in the Spring/ Summer Mini Catalogue. So useful when it comes to male cards! I know I'll be turning to a lot over the next few days while crafting. Another thing I like about the stamp set is the pattern SU has used, which helps when putting a card together.

Now onto something exciting, for the first time I am offer a day where you can keep the products offered in the This & That bundle (£29.24). I'm offering the day at a price of £35 which purely covers the cost of the kit, lunch and all the ink and papers you want to use! I'm expecting it to be an amazing day with loads of laughs. It will run from 11am on the Tuesday 28th May till 3pm but knowing me I'll run over specially if we're busy crafting!
If you are interest please contact me and I'll answer any questions with no obligation to come along. To text or call it is 07712596191 and email is martinboo@hotmail.co.uk.
