From My Kitchen Gift Tags

I've been having a bit of a play with some goodies from the latest annual catalogue, including some of the newest goodies as well as items you may have bought last year.  Oh, and yes, I did use a retired stamp set and punch too - sorry - but if you have them then this is some new inspiration for you!  Afterall we do all keep our crafty stash right and want to keep using it all?! 

I took some of these to the craft fair I did recently, and yes!  Some ladies that make jam and sweets bought some tags to decorate them for gifts!

Stamp sets - Label Me Pretty, Brushstrokes, Fresh Fruit (retired)
Punches - Pretty Label, Starburst, Angled Tag Topper (retired)

Ightham Mote Summer Fete - My First Craft Fair!


I thought I would share some photos from the craft fair that I did last weekend with some friends.  It's the first time I've been brave enough to get out there and sell my handcrafted papercrafts like this - only ever sold a few cards to friends and colleagues before! 
Even though the weather was not as good as it has been of late (the sides of the gazebo went on and off to cope with the spitting rain several times!) there was still a reasonable turn out at Ightham Mote for the summer fete with entertainment and acitivities. Best of all - we had fun, and all sold some of our crafting goodies!

Delightful Daisy Meets Big on Birthdays!

How much do you love the Delightful Daisy suite?  A lot?  Yes, along with the rest of us it seems! It's great that the suite has been so popular, but unfortunately it has meant that the gorgeous daisy punch is still out of stock.  This means that right now you cannot order the punch, or the bundle with it in.  But... you can still buy the stamps and the stunning patterned paper if you just can't wait to play!

The two cards I have to share with you today use some of the patterned paper - including one of my favourites, the white daisies on a Night of Navy background.

Stampin' Up! materials used:
Stamp set - Big on Birthdays
Designer Series Paper - Delightful Daisy
Ink - Night of Navy, Pool Party
Card - Night of Navy, Pool Party, Whisper White, Whisper White thick card
Other - 1/8" circle handheld punch, Stampin' Trimmer, fine tip glue pen, Fast Fuse adhesive

Tranquil Tulips Birthday

Yes, if you visited my blog yesterday (thank you) you will recognise this card... though I have changed the sentiment to Happy Birthday!  Still lovely!

I made quite a lot of the thank you cards that I shared with you yesterday, but so far only one birthday card, and I know exactly who I am going to send it to!  
I hope you are able to get this set and have as much fun as I am having playing with it!
