Petal Garden - Quick & Easy Cards in a Hurry

I found myself requiring a lot of cards but with very little time to spare.

These proved to be just perfect.   Small but pretty, quick and easy.

I use 3 x 3 card bases.   I cut some sheets of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper into four.  The stacks of  DSP are 6 x 6 inch papers, so I got four pretty layers from each sheet to adhere to my card bases.

Out came my 1 1/2 and 2 inch circle punches and my Flirty Flowers stamp set and I quickly completed 15 cards in around 25 minutes.

Petal Garden, Stampin' Up!, Linda Parker

The punches are so very handy for creating focal points/frames for sentiments.  No need for a die cutter when you want a centrepiece in a hurry.

Old Olive is the colour used in this DSP but I didn't have any card in that colour.  I found that Pear Pizzazz toned really rather well instead.

I love these beautiful papers - they call to mind a cottage garden!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I will pop back again shortly with another pretty project and video.

Bye for now.

Bundle of Love and a Recycled Perfume Box

I hate to throw away those really stronge luxury gift boxes that come with certain brands of perfume.

I had a Georgio Armani Box lying around my crafting room crying out to the re-purposed, so I whipped out my favourite Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Series Paper, a collection of ribbons and my Sweet & Sassy framelits, Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and got to work.

Here is the fruit of my labour - a little keepsake box me thinks !

Bundle of Love, Linda Parker UK Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Sweet and Sassy Hearts Framelit,

Hope you like it and it inspires you to try something similar.  Just have a rummage through all your crafty stash.

It's amazing what can be achieved with a bit of card, some ribbon and your imagination. This took me all of half an hour.

That's it from me for today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fresh Florals Welcome Pack for a Shiny New Member of my Team !

I love it when I get to welcome a new member.

It means I get the opportunity to disappear and craft my heart out for an hour or two. 

Time has been of a bit of a premium lately, but this morning I was up bright and early and squirrelled myself away to put together a pretty little Welcome Pack for the lovely Diane who recently joined my jolly little team - the Crafty's Angels.

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper is so pretty to work with, and I was able to create some gorgeous colour co-ordinated packaging in the form of a handy little Craft Case to hold some crafty bits which I gift to new team members.  Stampin' Up!'s Full Sized Stamp Cases are the perfect size for these little cases and are generous enough to hold quite a lot of important crafting basics.

I cut a piece of Fresh Florals DSP to size and inserted inside the plastic cover on the case.  I purchased the light-weight white plastic handles from good old B&Q and screwed them to the case, et voila ! A cute handy little carry case.

Of course, every member also requires a handy notebook for writing down craft "recipes" and "wish lists", so Diane also receives my sweet covered note book with penholder

Lets not forget the chocolate bar to sweeten her SU appetite as she browses the new Seasonal Catalogue, out on 1st September !!!

I thought the sentiment on the card was appropriate too - I am always chuffed to pieces when somebody takes the plunge and decides to join my own team and, of course, the wider team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators globally.

If you would like to find out more about joining, please click the link below.


Please get in touch if you would like a little chat.  I would love to hear from you - anytime !

 Diane - this will be in the post to you tomorrow.

That's it from me today - bye for now.

Dragonfly Dreams and Hello Friend - The Perfect Combination

I ran a super class in Wickham, Hampshire in June and this card proved very popular with my ladies:-

Dragonfly Dreams and Hello Friend, Linda Parker, UK Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

We used two different stampsets, the beautiful Dragonfly Dreams, Hello Friend, and the gorgeous Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.

It was an interesting little project which involved some stencilling, some heat embossing and some die cutting - a little bit of everything.  

The feedback I received was that the class really did enjoy the project and were thrilled with the end result.

If you live near Wickham in Hampshire, and would like to attend one of my classes, please get in touch by emailling me at Linda@papercraftwithcrafty.co.uk  We had great fun.

Happy Friday everyone - its almost the weekend. YAY !

Bye for now.
