Kitchen Tea Invitations

My friends daughter is a bridesmaid for an upcoming wedding (you know you're getting old when your friends daughters are old enough to be bridesmaids at their friends weddings).

I was asked to make the invitations for the kitchen tea. My friend had the idea of them being shaped like a dress. Dazzling Diamonds has always reminded me of Crystal Barbie (the best Barbie EVER!!) I just had to team it up with this gorgeous ribbon that just screams Crystal Barbie!!

This is the invitation I came up with. I'm just waiting to see if the Bride and her maids approve.

Great Friend

I had so much fun on Friday at the Stamp, Crop and Choc night. I helped my friend Charlotte make baby thank you cards using the Choo Choo set from the mini, they were so cute. I didn't get any photos so I'll have to wait for my thank you card to arrive so I can show you!

The Fathers Day Wallet Album class is on this Friday night you can see all the details here including a sneak peak. I still have some places left so let me know if you'd like to come.

I can't post without leaving you with a pretty picture!! One of my favourite (like I don't use that word very often) stamp sets at the moment is Great Friend. I love the butterfly - she is so beautiful. So I teamed it up with my other favourite accessory - Dazzling Diamonds and got two very beautiful and very sparkly butterflies.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Great Friend
Ink: Versamark, Basic Gray
Paper: Kraft, Basic Gray, Walk in the Park DSP

Spring Mini Launch Night

I had so much fun on Friday night at our Spring Mini Launch Night. We made some fabulous projects and thought you might like to see what you missed out on, I mean what we made!

The first project was this cute waterfall card using the Choo Choo set with the coordinating Right on Track wheel and also the Birthday Wish single stamp. I saw a waterfall card using this set a little while ago whilst blog surfing and thought it would be a great project for the launch. We all had so much fun making this card - it's just too cute!!

Then we made this cute little bookmark gift using the Oval All and Great Friends stamp sets with the new Scallop Oval Punch and matching Large Oval Punch (don't you just love how easy Stampin' Up! makes craftin for us??). The cover is made with the Parisian Breeze DSP which is just lovely.

Here it is closed....
Then opened with the bookmark...
And finally my favourite stamp of the mini, the butterfly from teh Great Friend set. I'm also loving the Walk in the Park DSP which we also used.

There is no use pretending, I love this Mini many beautiful things!!!!
