How Old? Retro Fresh Birthday Card great for boys and girls of any age!

I love the colours and the modern twist on retro patterns that are found in the Retro Fresh Designed Series Papers from Stampin' Up! so I decided to let them take front and center on this Birthday Card.
How Old?  A Stampin' Up! Card suitable for people of any age by UK based Independent Demonstrator Bekka Prideaux
The patterned paper was mounted onto a piece of Coastal Cabana Card and an opening was cut with the Word Bubble Framelits.  The sentiment, You're How Old is from the Just Sayin' Stamp Set and was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla Card and mounted behind the cut out window.  The card base is Baked Brown Sugar.

Who would you send a card like this to?

40 and Fabulous Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! Products

A little while ago a friend of mine celebrated a very special birthday which called for a card telling her what I thought of her!  This is what I came up with.
40 & Fabulous Birthday Card by Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator Bekka - get your Stampin' Up! Products here

I have used the Hardwood Stamp as a background and then a combination of the Memorable Moments and the Million and One Stamp Sets, along with my trusty Marvelous Marker to make the greeting I wanted.  The butterflies were punched from Brushed Gold Card and Gold Fancy Foil Vellum using my Bitty Butterfly and my Elegant Butterfly Punch.  The Fancy Foil Vellum was also inked with Coastal Cabana to tone in with the Bermuda Bay used on this card. The other colours used are Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride.

MDS Monday - A Spring Walk

One of the things I love to do when the weather is nice is grab my camera and go for a wander to see what I can discover.  Having recently moved house there is lots to explore which is great.  One of the areas I know I will go back to is the canal - I had a lovey time just wandering along and I know I will enjoy exploring there some more.

Happy Easter, A Storybook Friends Card

Happy Easter Everyone!  I hope you have a fun filled day planned.  Today I am going to share an Easter Card  we made at the Storybook Friends Card Class.
Storybook Friends Easter Card by Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator Bekka - check out her blog for lots of great ideas
The background for this card is the back of one of the Watercolor Wonder Note Cards and the greeting is from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set.  The adorable rabbit from the Storybook Friends Stamp Set has been stamped twice, and layered up to give some extra dimension to the card.  He sits on a punched out circle on a Deco Label Frame with some Crumb Cake Seam Binding and some Crochet Trim underneath.

Project Life Inspired Scrapbook Page using Stampin' Up! Products

Project Life is one of the largest trends in Scrapbooking and earlier this week Stampin' Up! announced a very exciting collaboration with Becky Higgins creator of Project Life.  From late June you will be able to purchase these authentic Project Life products featuring exclusive Stampin' Up! Colours and coordination here in the UK.  

I am so excited and I love scrapping Project Life Style with my existing Stampin' Up! products - just imagine how much more fun it is going to be with the real deal!  I know I will get a lot more pages made and photos off my computer and into my albums.  I will continue to make more traditional pages too, and am looking forward to mixing them in my albums.

Last weekend we had our team training and today I am going to share the page I designed and demonstrated for them, with you.  It was entirely inspired by the Project Life style of Scrapbooking and Project Life type Pages!
Project Life Inspired Scrapbook Page using Stampin' Up! Products - real thing coming to the UK soon check it out here!

I have used a piece of Crumb Cake Card which I scored to divide it up and then added elements and journaling cards to it.  On the page I have used the Around the World Stamp Set and the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set which are both fantastic or this kind of page.  The page also features papers from the Fresh Prints Paper Stack and I have used my Banner Framelits too.

I even added a pocket so I can slip in things I wanted to keep with the page like receipts and tickets.

This decorative card was stamped with the Hardwood Stamp and then had other images stamped from the Around the World Stamp Set and punched out with the 1 inch circle punch and the Hexagon Punch.  Butterflies of course adorn the page punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch as well as the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

Find Out About Friday - Can Benedict Cumberbatch Craft?

Have you ever wanted to own a card made by one of your favourite celebrities?  Or maybe you have wondered what they would make with some Stampin' Up! supplies ... well now now only can you find out but you can also bid to own one.  Cards for Keeps is a charity auction arranged by Stampin' Up! UK - they have asked leading UK celebrities to make a card from Stampin' Up! Supplies and these card will be auctioned on ebay from 6 - 16 May 2014.  All the money raised will go to Coram - the UK's oldest children's charity.
Cards for Keeps - UK Celebrities make cards using Stampin' Up! Supplies to raise money for Coram - check it out here

You can see the cards so far here and more are being added all the time so if you are on Pinterest make sure you follow the boards!

I love loads of the cards that have been created!  Who knew Benedict Cummerbatch, Alison Stedman and Twiggy, Jo Brand, Doon MacKichan, Joanne Harris, Lisa Tarbuck, Esther Ransen, Marian Keyes, Rachel Rieley, Fern Britton and Karl Pinkington (to name but a few) would make such beautiful cards!  

There are also some cards by artists and illustrators including Axel Scheddler, Anita Klein and I would love to have either of the cards by Tina Morgan framed an on my walls!  I also love the card by Rebecca Cobb and the cartoon by Matt Pritchett reminds me of how it feels to be sat at my desk some days!

Special mentions also should go to Novelist Phillipa Gregory and Actor Joseph Feinnes - when I saw their cards I assumed they were by artists!

So pop on over here, look at the cards and decide which you are going to bid on.  It is an amazing chance to own something very special and help raise funds for an incredible charity.

Class Easter Treats with Storybook Friends Stamp Set

I really enjoy spending time with the lovely people who come to my Card Making Classes and from time to time I like to give them a little extra treat at class.  Today I am going to share the treats I made for the people who came on Saturday, our class featured the lovely Storybook Friends Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! and so I used that to decorate the treats as well.
Easter Treats made with the Storybook Friends Stamps and Scallop Top Tag Punch from Stampin' Up!  Check out this blog

The little bags were made using the Scallop Top Tag Punch and some Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Papers.  I have also used some Rhinestones and some Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon to decorate them.  Inside each one sits a little chocolate bunny.
