Tomorrow I will be taking a flight to Amsterdam to attend the

Stampin' Up! On Stage Event

and I can't wait to be there!!

Now I'm going to have so much fun I thought it would be nice to give away some FREE PRODUCTS, you will find the details down below so keep reading!

As at every Stampin' Up! event we swap, this is a process of making card fronts then swapping with other Demonstrators and coming home with lots of new ideas!

Below is one of my swaps in progress, I will post the finished design later.

My colour combination is

Bermuda Bay
Rich Razzleberry
Whisper White

Love these colours together and although they aren't subtles that I'm usually drawn to I still love them!

I used the Window Shopping Stamps and Window Box dies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, both can be purchased singly or as a bundle saving you money, a fabulous set great for making cards and boxes with.

I designed this card for a recent class and decided it would be a nice one to create as a swap, it's pretty simple but sweet with it and could be dressed up a little if needed.

I used my Petite Petals punch to create a decorative end on my greeting banner, I really like how it finishes it off.

So whilst I am away enjoying myself and feasting over lots of lovely new products that will be coming your way soon, I thought I would give away some


Just place an order with me for a min £25, online or via email between
6th and 9th April and I will send you a free gift in the post to say thank you for shopping with me.

Use my Hostess Code and you will get an extra gift at the beginning of May too!

Below you will see all of the products I used to create my swap, if you click on a product it will direct you to my shop.

Balloons away handmade Box Card

I love making Box Cards, these are great for any occasion and I love how they fold flat for posting!

Today's little piece of inspiration uses the Lift Me Up Bundle, which you have seen me use a lot for sure as I just love how versatile it is, wedding, baby, young, mature, masculine, feminine, it just works for it all!

This card was part of a set of three we made at a class, it looks complex but really it is quite straight forward, I am considering selling some kits with pre-cut pieces for you to put together at home, but of course you would have to add your own stamped images as I am not permitted to include those.  Watch this space!

I love Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate together, I'm such a plain Jane, adore the subtle colours and struggle with the Brights!

I've also used the Birthday Bright stamp set from the Spring/Summer catalogue, another great selection of greetings to aid your cardmaking.

If you would like to place an online order with me, don't forget to use this month's Hostess Code if you order is over £25.

If you are local you can contact me direct via phone or email to place your order, shipping will be just £1 regardless of the size of your order.

Nailed It Masculine Card

Wow, it's Friday again already, I'm not complaining as I love the weekend, usual routine blown out of the window, the smell of freshly ground coffee beans whilst we sit around the kitchen (I spend most of my time in here, love it).  As from next week Jack's racing series kicks off for this season which brings the two day events meaning our weekends will be a little different but we are still together as a family and that's the main thing.

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for a recent class, I can't tell you how much use I've had from this set Nailed It, I love how easy it is to create a masculine card, the co-ordinating dies make ease of cutting the tools out and I love that the set has a ruler die, fabulous.

There will be plenty more cards to follow this one using this set so do pop back to check them out.

When I first saw the Hexagons Dynamics embossing folder at On Stage in November, I was exciting to actually try it for myself and run it through my Big Shot machine.  I can't explain just how textured this folder is, it's pretty awesome and gets me every time I run some cardstock through with it, an outstanding product that is really a must, and don't just think of it for masculine products, it's way much more than that.

Our Sale-a-Bration promotion is still running and it's not too late to earn yourself some free products, simply place an order with me for £45 and choose from any of the free items on the flyers.

If you aren't local you can place an online order

If your order is over £25 use my Hostess Code below and I will send you a free gift in the post from me to say thank you for shopping with me.

Carousel Birthday hand stamped and packaged treat bags

I'm sure by now you all know how much I love to give a treat, it really is about the packaging for me, love creating it and love giving it too!

Today I'm sharing a little chocolate treat I gave to some ladies at a recent class and I loved making them so much I made a bunch for some team members as we were having a meeting!

I've used the lovely set "Carousel Birthday" from the Spring/Summer Catalogue, the greeting I used from the set is perfect for gift giving and I love the flourish that surrounds it.

It was cut out using the Layering Ovals dies which are a must have, in fact all of the layering dies are amazing, I use them so often.kerry timms handmade gift treat cardmaking scrapbooking papercraft class classes gloucester creative create hobby female invitation favour wedding chocolate I teamed my black stripy cupcake holder with Delightful Dijon, created a base for one of our cello bags and then adding a banner tag with more cardstock and some co-ordinating Dijon ribbon, the little peg has sadly retired but I needed to use up my stock!

I was really pleased with how it turned out and everyone loves Chocolate Teacakes so smiles all round, pretty packing and chocolate, a great combination!
