Bank holiday Crafty Session!!

Hey all!!! I have had a last-minute fabulously crafty afternoon with my sisters and my friend Hannah!! I quite literally emptied most of my crafty stash onto the dining room and we just played all afternoon - i have so many creations to share with you over the next few days!!

Now the sign of a good crafty session is a completely messy workspace - so here is us busy crafting away:

Just look at that mess! Hehe! impressive hey?! And here we are showing of some of our finished creations:

So before i go here's a few of the cards that were made today. First up a fab cupcake card created by Hannah:

A 'Very Vanilla' cardbase. Hannah embossed some 'Pink Pirouette' card using the 'Big Shot' and the 'Square Lattice Embossing Folder', which she glued in place. She stamped the cupcake (from the 'Crazy For Cupcakes' set) painted it in using 'a range of Stampin Up! inks and 'Blender Pens', cut it out by hand and attached it to the card using 'Dimensionals' to create a 3D effect. She punched out several '1/2" Circles' from some 'Rose Red' card and glued them randomly in place. She wrapped some 'Grosgrain Ribbon' around the front and finally printed the sentiment (also from the 'Crazy For Cupcakes' set) punched out using the 'Decorative Label Punch'. I love this design!!

Hannah also couldn't resist playing with the rest of 'Sale-a-bration' stash... i'm gonna miss those papers :( As well as some retired sets of mine as well as  the fabby 'Butterfly Punch' to create this card:

She also CASE'd my window idea that i shared last week to create this card using the 'Patterned Pets' stampset:

Finally i have a fun little card my little sister made for me - a windmill card created using 'Brights DSP' to create the main building and strips of  'Big Top Birthday DSP' to make the sails'. She used a 'Stampin' Write Marker' to draw on the door and some 'Bright Brads' in coordinating colours! I'm pretty impressed with this - it's a completely original design and not bad at all for a 9 year old!! So proud of her!!

Well i think that is enough from me for today - so check back tomorrow to see some more creations from our crafty session!

If you live in the Aldershot area and fancy coming along and having a play with some of the Stampin' Up! products then email me to make some arrangements: You're more than welcome!
