Christmas is Coming.....

I have been having a fabby time playing with the new SU! goodies, especially the Christmas Jingle kit. I made this pennant banner out of old cereal packets (in true Blue Peter style!). I also added some extra sparkle with the gorgeous new glitters we have and some ribbon and chipboard.

I also made some cards using the same kit. I made ten in all and I've still got loads of the kit left. It really is great value. 8 sheets of cardstock, 6 sheets of double sided patterned paper and 6 sheets of self adhesive die cuts, all for £15.50. Bargain! It's proving very popular, having sold out once already.
These cards I've made are a mixture of my own designs and some beautiful designs by Ilina over at her blog My Creations. I showed all these to the ladies at our crop on Saturday and they all asked me to take pictures, so here they are. Enjoy!

Summer Design Challenge

As those of you who know me will already know, I absolutely adore "A Rose is a Rose", the stamp set by Stampin' Up!

When I first heard about the Summer Design Challenge, this is what I decided to use to make my design. Basically I did a one sheet wonder, this is where you stamp your images randomly all over a sheet of either A4 or 12x12 cardstock and then cut it up and use it on your cards. I used a 12x12 sheet and made a box with 10 cards. Here's the results:

Sorry, some of the photos are a bit rubbish, but I'm no David Bailey and I don't have a great camera.
The colours I used were Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Old Olive, So Saffron, Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue and Chocolate Chip in various mediums of ribbons, inks, cardstock and patterned paper. Other sets used were Occasional Greetings, Circle of Friendship, Basic Phrases, Frames with a Flourish and Sincere Salutations.
