Love is Kindness Team Swaps

Hello there and happy Sunday! I LOVE my Sundays! When I was at school I used to hate Sundays, in particular Sunday evenings as I always had that back to school feeling. I didn’t particularly hate school but I always had that dreaded “Sunday night feeling”. But now, working in a job that I love I no longer have the Sunday Night Feeling and I love my Sundays. 

Anyway back to crafting. Yesterday I ran our Quarterly Team Training event with my lovely girls and we had a great day of business talks, catching up, crafting with the new Spring/Summer and just a general nice get together. It’s traditional at our events to swap cards so we get lots of different ideas. You make the required number of cards for the people attending and then we swap with each other giving out one of our makes to each person. I have been enjoying colouring the Love is Kindness stamp so I decided to use this on my swaps.
I sat on Thursday night watching TV and colouring 20 of these tags with the Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Pink Pirouette Blendabilitie pens. The background is the new embossing folder from the Spring/Summer Catalogue and the tag was punched out with the new Ornate Tag Topper punch. 
 The stamp is just one stamp but I have cut the sentiment off so I have the option of using it seperately if I want to, or I can choose to have another sentiment. I did really enjoy making these swaps and got some lovely ones in return. If you would like to join us at our next training event all you need to do is join up with me!  
 Back tomorrow with some more makes from training.

Painted Blooms Folding Card

Good Morning. I am a bit late blogging today as I didn’t prepare my blog post last night! I usually half type up my blogs on an evening whilst I am watching the TV but last night I was colouring in some images for my swaps for our Team Training tomorrow. Tonight Evan and I are going to see Strictly Come Dancing the Live Tour! We are on the 2nd row so we are very excited to be so close to the dancers!

Today I am sharing a card design that I CASEd from a gorgeous swap from my lovely friend and downline Sam at the Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration tour in November. I don’t know what this style of card is called but basically it is made up of 2 of the Note Card and Envelopes stuck together. I had to make it completely by eye, from looking at Sam’s make and mine is a bit rough around the edges, especially where I had to cut the paper and the apertures!
I have used the Painted Blooms papers which I just LOVE!!! They are the sort of papers you like to look at, rather than use but I got straight in there and cut them up! 
 I have also used the Crazy About You stamp set with the co-ordinating framelits on this card too for the sentiments. I love how I can make lots of little phrases up!
 I did of course add the Bow Builder punch to the front of the card, I couldn’t resist! 
Hope you like todays little make. I need to go finish the swaps I started last night and then double check all my bags and boxes for our big day tomorrow AND of course I need to make myself look lovely for Aljaz tonight!!!!!
