Little Claire Showcase - Day # 3


Good morning, February already - where has the last month gone? The start of the month, means another fabulous club stamp set over at Little Claire . The new set is called 'Garden Set' and has lots of elements including a sweet little sentiment stamp. You can join the club and get the pack for £8.00, via the link above.

As you can see, I have made a desk calender and a tent card using the new set. Pink & purple cardstock from SU, die cut butterflies and some bling finish off. Dies used are from Quikutz and Sizzix. Not sure if you can see that I have glossy accented the trowel and wellies.



Am busy getting samples made for 'Bluewater' if you are coming along, pop on by the stand to say hi. Am so looking forward to going to this new show and maybe picking up a few bargains along the way lol!

Little Claire Showcase - Day # 2


Good morning, another couple of cards from me using a gorgeous new stamp 'Birdhouse Garland' over at Little Claire . It is available to purchase today at the great price of £5.50, or you could go visit the blog with a chance to win this wonderful little stamp. If you are in need of inspiration today, the DT cards will inspire you.


I have made two very different cards, one pastel and one with bright Promarker colours. Papers used on my cards are My Minds Eye, card and ribbon Stamping Up. Flower dies are Marianne ones.

The dreaded snow is on its way down here today, not happy about it at all. I love looking at it but hate going out in it. Also I have a poorly Georgia home with a cold today. She has just put 'The Simpsons' movie on, I cannot believe that I haven't seen it, its hilarious! Am also loving 'Call the Midwife' on the box at the moment, must get the series when it comes out. OMG I spent far too much time watching TV lol.
I will be back in the morning with my third showcase, hope you will pop on by.

Right, off to do some more crafting and take care of the patient, have a lovely day!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me lovely comments, I will pop on by your blogs later today.

Little Claire Showcase - Day # 1


Good morning, brrrrrr its very chilly here today, snow is on its way I believe. I love the white fluffy stuff except when driving in it, so am going to stay home, drink lots of coffee and spend the day crafting in the warm!

Am so excited to be showcasing the brand new 'Garden' stamps out today from Little Claire , they are so gorgeous! The first of which is called 'Deckchair', it reminds me of Spring/Summer days sitting in the garden, drinking Pimms and enjoying the sunshine. We have crocus', daffodils and little birds in the garden, which so reminds me of this new stamp range.

Each day this week, Little Claire will be showcasing a new stamp and there is lots of inspiration on the blog here from the Design Team. You can even win the stamp showcased each day. For more information and a chance to win, go via the link above to the main blog.

I will be back tommorrow with Day # 2, have a lovely day and keep warm!

January Class Cards

Hi there, hoping your day is going well? I just wanted to share a couple of cards that we made recently at one of my classes that I hold at home every month. I had forgotten that they were on my computer and one of my friends, had a moan at me to upload them, so here they are : Hope you likey?
Our theme for January was flowers,

Firstly, we used a gorgeous Crafty Individuals stamp and made a collage card

On my second card, I have used a wonderful set of Clarity stamps and made buttons using glossy accents.


At lastly a hydrangea stamp from Stamp Up with lots of ink.


All cardstock is from SU, papers from My Mind's Eye (of course). Various punches, ribbons and bling to finish off.

Just a note to Helen and Maureen, I will email you about a place on the March class, unfortunately February is now full.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog, have a lovely day!

Little Claire Showcase - Day # 6


Happy Sunday morning to you! Here is my last card showcasing the new 'Male' themed stamps over at Little Claire's . This stamp is called 'Going Out ' which is part of the 'Claire's Super Six Set.

I am a little late with posting my card, the Sandown show was very busy yesterday and I was just a bit tired last night, fell asleep watching 'Big Brother' which isn't like me lol! It was sooo good to see so many of you bloggers and attendees of the Little Claire days, I so lovely catching up with everyone!

Anyway, I have made a nice, simple card, sentiment on the inside this time. I have also used the 'Buttons & Stitching' stamp set to add some embellies. Am going to send a duplicate of this card to my big brother next week for his birthday. I know I am safe showing it, as he isn't a big blogger or computer geek, we always have a joke about him hanging up his coat when he comes round to see me, so I am hoping he gets the joke!

The family are off to an animal sanctuary today, my hubs company are sponsoring it this year and they are having a bit of an open day. I have promised David that no little furry friends will be coming home with us, our house has enough of them for the time being.

Have a wonderful day, thanks for any comments left. If you get a chance pop on over to the LC blog and take a look at the other DT cards, very inspiring!

Lastly, just wanted to say goodbye to the lovely Louise, who has been my teamie at Little Claire. She is stepping down from the team and I am really going to miss her.

Little Claire Showcase # 3


Good morning, its dark, wet and miserable here today, am so glad there isn't any frost though. Am hoping my post finds you well and warm, wherever you are!

It is Day # 3 of Little Claire's new stamp showcase. It is a fantastic way of getting organised with male cards. I always struggle, generally cheat and then feel bad lol! I have three older brothers, four nephews and heaps of friends hubs to make them for, so if your in the same boat as me, these new stamps will come in very handy. Do pop on over via the link above to see the other stamps that have been launched this week and all of the other dt inspiration.

Today is the turn of 'In a While'. It is such a fun little image, very quirky which I love! You can purchase it for the great price of £5.50 over at the shop. I have used some wonderful 'My Mind's Eye' papers to show it off, which I think works really well!

Am getting geared up for Sandown Park which starts up tommorrow. If you are coming along, please pop by the stand and say hi! Its so lovely to meet my blog hoppers, we always have a great banter. So I will be spending today, getting my samples sorted and my tote packed, how exciting!!!

Firstly, have to do Tesco's otherwise the girls won't get fed this evening. Hoping the weather is better where you are, if you feel the urge, please drop my a comment so I can come over to your blog and find out what you have been up to lol!

Little Claire Monthly Challenge #17


Good morning, am sitting here with my knees knocking as I am sooooo cold! Its very frosty here and I need to go put the central heating back on so that I don't get hyperthermia lol! It doesnt help that I am still in my jim-jams, so after posting this, will be finding warm winter wear to put on.

It's Challenge # 17 over at Little Claire's Blog , the theme being 'Anything but a Card'. I have made another box, this time just one drawer instead of twenty four like my last post.


There is a great prize again this month, stamps and crafting goodies. You don't have to use a Little Claire image, but if you do, you could be the winner of our super little blinkie for your blog.

I have used the wonderful image 'Spikey Flowers', such a pretty little stamp! the box is made out of SU 'Not quite navy' & 'cream' cardstock, have stamped with the same coloured ink pad, the roses are made from a small scallop punch and finished off with a small blue stone. I have also decorated the bottom of the box as well.

Off to get some breakfast. Will be back over the weekend to share some of my class cards with you.

Have a good one!

Good afternoon, just a very quick little post today to share my Little Claire blog project for Thursday.

I have made an easel topped drawed box using twenty four little match-boxes. Instructions & ingredients are shown on the main Little Claire blog. Its very easy to make using lots of scraps from my paper boxes and a little lace. The little image I have used, which I absolutely love, is 'Henny Penny', you can purchase her from the shop via the link above.

There is a special Thursday offer on their website and lots of brand new stamps will be launched from Monday. Do pop on over and take a look at their site.

Am busy getting ready for a houseful of ladies this evening, an hosting another class making some 'flower' cards.

Also sending lots of love to my wonderful Jess who is taking her GCSE Science today, am so very proud of her, she works so hard - GOOD LUCK JESS xxxxx

Little Claire Jan Club Stamp

Happy New Year to you! Hope your new year celebrations went well, thanks for stopping by my blog this evening? We had a lovely quiet evening drinking in last night, Buck's Fizz and watching 'Hootananny', it was lovely and my head didn't even hurt this morning lol!

I wanted to share a couple of cards using the January Club Stamp Set, new out today from Little Claire's . It's called 'At Home' and its such a great little set, it can be used as a new home or new start card, great for new year too!




On my cards, I have used 'Isabelle' papers and various Promarker colours. I have decoupaged the large flowers and have added some font leaves. The second card is a stepper card and the scallop punch is a SU one.


Must catch 'Sherlock' in a minute and I have lots of cards to make, so many birthdays this month! Better get on with them. It is one of my resolutions to get more organised, so far so good. Did you make any resolutions? Let's hope we both stick to them.



hugs




Heidi
