Last chance

My last order for Sale-a-bration will be going in tomorrow - have you got everything you want?!!

Do you NEED any of the goodies available on Weekly Deals this week?

Let me know if you do.

To continue with my recent trip away we are still on the first evening and after the lovely little set of cards I shared in my previous post we then made a lovely little album.

Using the A Happy Hooray stamp set for the front and the Back to Black paper again and a touch of sparkle it makes for a lovely gift if you can bear to part with it!

Our final set project of the first night was 3 teeny cards with matching envelopes that sit in a gift bag.

Using the Spring Flowers embossing folder for the bag and the Painted Petals stamp set for the stamping it makes another great little set.

Colours used are Crumb Cake and Pool Party.

So much inspiration and we've barely started!

Lots of crafting

So, to begin filling you in on the crafting undertaken last weekend!

We had a great weekend in Dorset and I've never crafted so much in the space of 3 days.

These are the goodies that Jenny very kindly gave us all.

All the tables were set out when we got there and each place had a folder with projects in, a decorated book, card, tin with lots of food goodies in and a bag!

The bag contained a stamp set, in colour paper, tissues and the scrummy accessories pack currently available with sale-a-bration.

The tin in the cellophane was on our beds and contains soap and the little hearts with our names on were put on our room doors.  Very kind and thoughtful and a lovely surprise.

Our project wallet contained everything we needed to make 3 projects.  Just one to share today which used the A Happy Hooray stamp set we got and the twine and buttons to match from our bags.  The cards are all notecard size.

They all use the current in colours and some back to black DSP.  We really enjoyed doing these and this was just a warm up!

A few things to mention today:

Not long left for Sale-a-bration now - remember you get a freebie with each £45 spend.

Some more goodies have been added to the freebie list - I'll add a pic tomorrow.

Blendabilities have been discounted unfortunately due to manufacturing issues.  You can no longer order these.

Butterfly thinlit dies are also currently unavailable - they will be available again but until they are I cannot order them and wait for stock.

On a brighter note I had a fabulous weekend with the Bloomin' Buds team last weekend so have loads to show and tell - should keep the blog busy for a bit.

In the meantime a quick post from Mothers Day.  One of the baskets and the cards were based on those we made at another of Jenny's great extravaganzas and as my Mum loved the Island Indigo colours used I thought I had better re-create it!

I've also used the gift card thinlit to make a little envelope that had a little treat in it.

Weekly Deals are worth a look this week too.  Card packs for Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Rich Razzleberry are reduced to £4.69 from £6.25, the envelope punch board is only £13.46 from £17.95 and there are 2 other great paper offers and one on scrummy ribbon.
