Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

Tote Bag

Here's a Tote bag, inspired by a very clever lady called Ann (Crafty Squirrel). Her version totally 'wowed' me when I saw her pictures so I decided to create my own version using Stampin' Up Designer papers from Tea Party set and the red/green version used the new Christmas Jingle set. The latter set has so many extras including self-adhesive die-cut strips (the christmas tree border is one of these) and co-ordinating Tree Trimmings self-adhesive embellishments. It really is a must have set. There is so much left in this kit to be able to make a huge amount of cards!
I decided to make a Christmas version to hold my card list and presents list but would make a lovely present or ideal item for craft stalls.
If you would like to order the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' set 117371 , it is just £15.50 + £2.00 P&P and I will include my instructions to make this Tote Bag FREE.

A huge 'Thank You' to everyone who came to the Catalogue launch on Saturday and making it such a sociable occasion. In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, it seemed that we all enjoyed ourselves! And it was great to meet some new 'addicts' and welcome them to the wonderful world of Stampin' Up.
So a little card for the occasion , using the versatile 'Thank You Kindly' stamp set which has been punched and layered using the popular Large Oval and Scallop Oval punches. I just used a background of embossed card which has been lighly inked with Pretty in Pink and sponged all the edges to bring the card together. Sponging is so popular at the moment, and very easy to do, but it always makes a card 'work'.
And here's a close up of punched flowers that have also been sponged and layered with a brad centre.
And the winner of the FREE draw
So 'Congratulations' Marjorie! I know that she won't be reading this post because computers are 'not her thing'! But as she attends my regular stamping classes, I shall be giving her these stamp sets tomorrow and I know that she will be thrilled.
Now I'm off to upload the new catalogue onto my blog (if I can remember how - lol! - well it has been a year since) so that you can all take a peek. If you would prefer your own hard copy to browse at your leisure, just email me triciaablett@hotmail.com and I will post one to you for just £3.95 incl P&P - SPECIAL OFFER THROUGHOUT OCTOBER.
Thanks for looking.
