Tuesday's Launch Night

For those of you that couldn't make it, here is a photo of the three projects we made on Tuesday. We made a desk calendar/card. A Christmas card using one of the new Sweet Treat Cups, and decorated a white carry bag with Real Red circles (baubles)cut using the new Circle Scissors. Then they were embossed in white using the Baroque Motif Stamp set.
I think everyone was pleased with what they made. I've had a comment that one lady thought it was really good because all of the projects were simple and easy to do, but everything looked really good.

Here is a side view of the desk calendar/card.

I used Baja Breeze, (again) Choc chip and Sahara Sand card stock. Plus some Baja Breeze Patterned Paper for the butterflies. They are made with the NEW Butterfly punch in the new Summer Mini Catalogue, I have been sticking butterflies on everything. I love it!!

Thanks for looking.

New Punch Stand

I saw a picture on the net of this great punch stand, so I asked my Dad if he could make me one. Looking at the picture of the stand on it's own you don't realise how big it is! It's a cube that swivels around, and holds 32 large punches, plus quite a few small ones too. When he had finished it I was shocked at the size. I wasn't even sure it would fit into my little car, especially as we had tons of luggage in there too! Anyway we got it home and Cliff painted it for me. So on Sunday I was ready to load up all the punches. Doing this made me clean and tidy my craft area, and it is looking so much better. I've even taken a photo. Mind you, since this photo was taken it has got a little bit messier, I've been getting things ready for tonight's Summer Mini Catalogue Launch.

Thanks Dad & Cliff for making my punch stand. X X
