Butterflies Everywhere

We had a feast of butterflies at my card class last weekend. I love butterflies but must admit to not using my Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die as often as I should. We also made a tag to match the card & gift bag but I gave my sample to one of the ladies who didn't finish all her projects.
 The little easel card would be ideal as a place setting, wouldn't it look nice with these decorating wedding tables?!
And the little gift bags, which are made using the Two Tags Die would make lovely wedding favours. The Lace Ribbon Border punch makes a fab handle.
I also made a large butterfly easel card to show how this can be done using the largest of the butterflies on the die.
 It takes a bit of folding but is well worth the effort & I love how the vellum looks after it's been embossed.

Training Swaps

I was sorting through some photos yesterday & came across some projects I haven't posted.

This cute little ice-lolly I made as swaps for our Stampin' Up! Regional Training in May was one of them.

I love finding projects which show how you can use Stampin' Up! punches in different ways & it was very therapeutic sitting & making 50 of them.

Card - Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Poppy Parade & Crumb Cake.

I love the Stampin' Up! Reason to Smile stamp set which is free this month if you spend over £60 (although you can buy it if you don't spend over £60) please contact me if you would like details.

This is the second of these cards as when I'd finished the first one it had a dirty great blue inky finger print in the top right hand corner! I was not happy I can tell you!!
