I had a lovely day today. We found a wonderful nursery just north of us. They had lots of lovely veggie plants as well as strawberries and huge variety of other bedding plants. They also have a great tea room that serves hot food as well. I got some herbs as well Fuschias and geraniums.
I have a cute congratulations card to share with you today. I wasn’t sure how I was going to use the stickers in the Eastern Palace Suite but I am growing to like them as accents on card. I love how the gold embossing coordinates with the gold foil sheet and stickers.
The new Stampin’ Up! catty launches tomorrow. I can’t wait. I will do a video when I get my goodies to show you all. If you want a copy let me know as always.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful bank holiday weekend. We were so lucky to have beautiful sun her last week and the garden is looking great. I have built two mini greenhouses and am starting to sew some lettuces to start off in there and then bring out. The tomatoes are growing well and geraniums are starting to flower.
I have a one sheet wonder bag today for you. This is made from one sheet of 12 x 12 designer series paper. There is no cutting involved so its a a very easy bag for a newbie to make. The colour used is one of our new in colours “Fresh Fig”.
This is quite a big bag so will hold loads of goodies. I love how elegant it looks but also how simple and easy it is to make.
The new Stampin’ Up! catty launches on Thursday 1st June. I am so excited, I just can’t wait. If you haven’t got your copy yet then just click on the request catty button and I will get one right out to you.
I hope everyone has been having a wonderful bank holiday. I spent a large part of it taking my mother plant shopping. She has bought tons of tubs, compost and plants. We only moved into this house last year so this is the year to start getting the garden into shape. We have quite a big back garden and a little bit out front as well. I bought some tomatoes to plant, also going to get some potatoes and later on lettuce. I love planting food. It is so rewarding to eat veggies you grew yourself.
Last month I went to convention in Amsterdam. I have never been to Amsterdam so was great to be able to go sight seeing as well. I saw Anne Frank’s house which I have always wanted to see as well as the Van Gogh Museum. The bonus of going to convention is you get to see the paper version of the new annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue and do a special pre order. I have done a video showing all the goodies I got in my order as well as the Eastern Palace Suite.
The Eastern Palace Suite is a suite of products in the new catalogue that is being made available as two special bundles ahead of the new catalogue launch. You can purchase them from today until 31st May through my online shop. The best bit is that you also get a freebie with each bundle. Yeah!!!
