Feeling Crafty Spring Craft Day

For this week's Find Out About Friday I thought I would tell you about a crafting day I am rather excited about - the Feeling Crafty Spring Craft Day.
Feeling Crafty Spring Craft Day - now booking
You are invited to spend a whole day crafting and enjoying the company of fellow crafters on Saturday 18 April 2015 in central Leighton Buzzard.  We are going to make some adorable projects which will include cards, gifts and items to decorate your home.

As well as your projects at the end of the day you will take home a jumbo goody bag (worth at least £60) which will include a stamp set and lots of other Stampin' Up! Goodies. Also included in the price of the day are light refreshments - if you have not yet tried a coffee / hot chocolate from the latest addition to the craft studio you are going to want to!  Tea and cakes will also be available.

The day costs £75 per person which is payable by 10 April.  If you book and pay before the end of March you will get additional goodies in your goody bag.  Places to attend in person are strictly limited so  you are advised to book as soon as you can. If you are not able to join us on the day you can join the fun from the comfort of your own home - just ask me how.

The day would make a wonderful Mother's Day or Easter Present so why not treat yourself and someone special.

To book please email bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk

Happy Hello Card

I have been having a lot of fun with the masks from the Hello Its's Your Day Card Kit - I really should make the cards from the kit too!  Today I am going to share a happy hello card with a stenciled background.

As well as the masks from the Hello It's Your Day Kit I also used the Dots Mask.  I then added some Washi Tape from the Playground Project Life Accessories Kit over a Tea Lace Doily.  The Hello was cut from the Hello You Thinlits Dies.

Orlando Leadership So You Scrapbook Page Swap

It is very strange to think that this time last month I was in Orlando with some of the amazing ladies who are leaders with Stampin' Up!  Quite a few of us from Europe traveled over and we decided that we all wanted to make a special album to remember our visit to each made a 4x4 Scrapbook Page featuring our photos to swap with each other and that we would make them to fit in the adorable So You Album.  Today I thought I would share the one I made.
Bekka's Orlando Leadership So You Scrapbook Page Swap
The Irrisistably Yours Papers have been stenciled using the flower cut out from the Artisan Embellishment Kit and stamped with the Best Day Ever Stamps - both of which are available as part of Sale-a-Bration.  If you are loving Sale-a-Bration be sure to check back tomorrow to see how it is getting even better!  

I have also used some Sahara Sand Lace and the butterflies were punched with my Bitty Butterfly Punch from some Silver Fancy Foil Embossed Vellum which I then coloured with my Tempting Turquoise Ink

I never expected that by sharing my love of stamping I would get such amazing opportunities as the trip to Orlando.  When I joined I just wanted to get my supplies cheap or for free, as well as that I have made amazing friends, grown as a crafter, and been to some amazing places.  If you would like to know more about where Stampin' Up! could take you please get in touch, bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk for a no obligation chat about it.

Stenciled Butterfly Painted Petals You're Amazingly Amazing Card

I am really enjoying playing with my Dots and Stripes Masks at the moment and I could not resist using them with the Painted Petals Stamp Set.  I have also been cutting a lot of butterflies with the Butterfly Thinlit Die ready for Stamperama on Sunday so I had lots of wax paper butterflies on my desk so I used one of those as a mask too.
Stenciled Butterfly Painted Petals You're Amazingly Amazing Card - Check this blog for lots of great ideas
The colours I have used are Wiseria Wonder, Rose Red, Blushing BrideElegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay.  As well as the Painted Petals Stamp Set I have also used one of the splatter stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.

I love the sense of depth you get when you use lots of different layers all added over each other and like the fact that the card is still really flat for postage!

If you are in the Stevenage Area on Sunday it would be lovely to see you at the Stamperama Show.  We have a stand and are running a workshop so if you have not tried Stampin' Up!' products for yourself this could be your ideal chance!  If you are coming please do introduce yourself, it is always lovely to meet my readers and I would love make sure you enter our show prize draw.

Painted Petals - Not just for Floral Girly Cards

Yesterday I mentioned that when we use a stamp set at our Monthly Card Making Classes we like to see how versatile it is and I showed you a pretty, feminine floral thank you card using the Painted Petals Stamp Set.  Well today's card uses the same stamp set and is still a thank you card but that is where any similarity ends!

This bright nautical thank you card would be great for any occasion and makes me think of summer days, just what is needed to cheer up a dull February day!

The colours are Pacific Point, Real Red and Whisper White and we used some Linen Thread to tie the card together.
