I realised I never showed you the bunch of goodies that came in my Stampin' Up! Starter kit. So here is a piccie of them in their box (less the ton of brown paper it was stuffed with).

Here are the contents once I'd unpacked them.

Don't forget I will be placing an order over the weekend so if you would like to add to it and save on postage then please email it to me Saturday midday at the latest.

Stampin' Up! here I come!

Well I am pleased to say I have joined Laura and become one of her downline in Stampin' Up!

I got my fab starter pack last weekend and it was like Christmas in my craft room. It was quite a big box but of course it was mostly packaging, but the suspense while I pulled all the crunched up brown paper out was worth it. Having thought there would be some things I would be less pleased with I can honestly say there isnt a thing I dont love and wont use. So check back and see what I do with my starter pack goodies.

In the meantime, I am organising a ribbon share. There are 4 options - the Gosgrain Stripe, the 0.25" Plain Gosgrain or the lovely Seam Binding Ribbon. You sign up for wichever you like (or all three for a discounted price) and receive a meter of each colour along with a colour project leaflet. Spaces are limited and I will be ordering at the end of July if enough spaces are filled.

If you are interested please email me and I will send more details.

CR84FN colour challenge

I came across this colour challenge site - I've been lurking a while, and decided to join in this week.

There's quite a bit of white on my card cos I don't have much pink card in my stash - not sure if that's cos I've used it all or dont buy it much - probably both :-)

So here was the challenge over on

and here's what I came up with:

I used papermania cupcake stamps, which are singular cucake stamps and I arranged them to look like a pile. Coloured them with my Copic pens and added some ribbon - very simple but very pink!
