Everyday Enchantment Day 3 Sale-A-Bration

Welcome back to day 3 of the Everyday Enchantment Showcase.

Today's card is a very quick and easy card to make, if you've forgotten somebody's special day. The card was original inspired by Monica, I love her blog, Most days I get up in the morning, make a drink and my Porridge & check out my favourite blogs, I love Monica's Projects as they are so classic & stylish.
The flower on the card is one from a batch I had left over after teaching the scrunched 3d flowers at my workshops last year, so this card was really quick to make up. The technique on the main panel is called the embedded technique I first saw it on a sample at Peterborough Training back in January.
To do the embedded technique you glue all of the elements onto the panel & then run the panel through an embossing folder, for this card I've used the square lattice folder.

To make this card I've used the following Stampin' Up products
Cardstock
Pool Party
Whisper White
Poppy Parade
Ink
Poppy Parade
Papers
Everyday Enchantment papers
Tools
Scallop Square punch
Fancy flower punch
Paper piercing tool
Mat Pack
Square Lattice embossing Folder
Sizzix Big shot
Stamps 
Elementry Elegance ~ SAB
Embellishments
Antique Brads ( in the centre of the flower)
Scallop dots ribbon ~ Old Olive
Shimmer mist made with Champagne mist Shimmer paint.


For the flower I have used 5 layers of card punched with the fancy flower punch, you can use all of the same punch as I've done here or you can layer up different size punch out like the 5 petal punch & Boho Blossoms punch.

Valentines For Hubby

For the first time ever Stampin' Up have added a paper pack to the Sale-A-Bration promotion & it is such a beautiful pack it will be a shame when the promotion ends & the papers are no longer available.


I saw an idea whilst browsing on pinterest and someone had made a beautiful picture with a similar layout to this card, but they had used the beautiful wings embosslit die & cardstock. Well or valentines day I used the Heart to Heart Punch & made this card.
Cardstock
Pool party
Calypso Coral
Crumb Cake
Poppy Parade
Whisper White
Ink
Poppy Parade
Tools
Heart to Heart Punch
3/4" Circle Punch
1" Circle Punch
Embellishments 
Basic Pearls

By cutting an assortment of hearts using the different Double sided Everyday Enchantment papers I achieved the effect of texture, some hearts are stuck directly onto the card using Tombow adhesive & some hearts are overlapped & layered using the Stampin' Dimensional's.

How did you have yours ?

I had buttermilk pancakes, just like Starbucks & I served them with Crispy Bacon & Maple Syrup


Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 150ml/1/4pt buttermilk
  • 175g/6oz self raising flour
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 15ml/1tbsp vegetable oil for frying
  • crispy bacon and maple syrup to serve
  • Method
  1. Beat the eggs and buttermilk together in a large bowl. Sift over the flour, sugar and salt then quickly mix to form a smooth thick batter.
  2. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan. Gently drop large spoonfuls of the batter into the hot pan and cook for 2 mins until the base is crisp and golden. Flip over and cook for a further 1-2 mins. Keep warm in a clean teatowel and repeat until all the batter is cooked. It makes about 12.
  3. To serve, stack 3-4 pancakes per person on plates, stacking them up with crispy bacon. Serve with maple syrup.

Another day, Another post

Good Morning, I think taking some time off from work has done wonders for my Missing Mojo. Last year I only used 3 days on my annual holiday entitlement & as a family we had a lot of stress going on I Dont think I realised  how much it had all got to me. This last 12 days I have spent time catching up with friends & crafting. This week being half term I have Abi home from sixth form to share creative time with.

 The first card uses Build a blossom from the current catalogue & I've paired that with the lovely set called Charming from the Spring Mini Catalogue. This card is probably best being hand delivered as I've used double layer dimensional s on the flower to add layers of depth.
On page 124 of the main ideas book and current catalogue is a product called textured impressions embossing set ~ designer frames. I had previously overlooked this pair of embossing frames. When Sharon & I did an event back in December she had left these two embossing folders in my box by accident & they have been sat on my shelf ever since. So I thought I would have a little play with them & I guess now they will have to be added to my wish list. On this card I have embossed the frame in Calypso Coral, I think it really pops off the page. The other Embosslit is the beautiful wings folder which is a must for both card-makers & scrapbookers. With 5 sizes of butterfly each with a different texture,its great to add a butterfly if you have any stray ink on your cards or a little mark where it shouldn't be, that's a top tip I picked up from one of my ladies at the event on Saturday.

Stampin' Up Training event Jan 2012

I know i'm more than a little late with this post as the Peterborough training event was back at the beginning of January, But work has been manic with Sale & then stock-take. So today is one of the first opportunities I've had to finish the projects & edit the pictures.
I love these training events as the are both crafting & business based, Sharon & I got up very early on the Sunday morning & went & picked Marie up, its the first event I've ever been too with two of my down-line & it was a lovely day.
The business training was lead by Bekka, so as well as being informative it was also fun.
I thought you would like to see some of the projects that Monica & Bekka had designed for us.

 This card holder is made from a single A4 sheet of card in one of the current In-colours Island Indigo. The papers used in all of the projects come from the Designer series Paper stacks, there is one for each of the colour families including the two In colour families.




The second project was a lovely card using one of the new sets from the Spring Mini catalogue that is decorated both on the inside & outside.
Outside

Inside
This card uses The My friend set from the Spring Mini Catalogue 122585 £24.95 (wood) 122587 £19.95 ( Clear )
 This card uses the full heart punch & the 122362 Lace ribbon Border punch in such a creative way I just love the simplicity of this card & it could be adapted for any occasion.
 Another new stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue is the create a cupcake, I have to say of the new sets this is one of my favourites,


The last card that we made at the training event is this beautiful valentines day card. Which is made with the You are loved set from the Mini catalogue 123777 £28.95 ( Wood ) 123779 £22.95 ( Clear Mounted )

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
