Lift Me Up! Gift Bag

Today I'm sharing a project with you that we made at my 'Lift Me Up' Bundle Class I held a couple of weeks ago.

It's a really useful size bag made using 2  12" x 12" sheets of  Carried Away Designer Series Papers which are FREE during Sale-a-Bration. These papers are lovely & really complement the stamp set & dies. If you would like to view a video tutorial of how to make this bag please go to Julie Kettlewell's video on YouTube HERE

I've used the very detailed balloon die from the Up & Away Thinlets to make a 3D balloon for
the tag on the bag & one of the fab sentiments from the Lift Me Up stamp set. You can purchase both the dies & stamp set as a bundle & save 10% by clicking on my shop link in the right hand sidebar.

I've also use the oval from the Stitched Framelits set for the sentiment. These are definitely my most used framelits & I make no apology for using them at most of my classes. I'm secretly hoping Stampin' Up! bring out more stitched shapes soon!

Thanks for visiting my blog today & Happy Crafting!

March Blog Hop - Colour Challenge - Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron & Sweet Sugarplum

Hello & welcome to this months Jem's Blog Hop.

Firstly I must apologise for the terrible photos! It's been a very dull day here in Leeds today hence the dark photos. I will replace them tomorrow when hopefully it will be a bit brighter.

This month we have a colour challenge & have chosen the colours from the gorgeous new Sale-a-Bration freebie the Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack.

Although it's described as paper it's actually cardstock thickness so is ideal for die cutting.
As soon as I saw the glittering colours I knew it would be perfect for the balloon from the Up & Away Thinlet Dies.

I have both of these cards on the fireplace & when the light catches them they are very sparkly & eye catching.

The second card is one that we did at my March Monthly Class last week using the Carousel stamp from the Carousel Birthday stamp set.

I've used it to make the cute little cupcakes.

Thanks for visiting my blog today & joining us on our Blog Hop.
