Exciting Engagement News!!

Last week our daughter and her boyfriend got engaged.  We are all very excited about it and looking forward to a wedding sometime in the next twelve months.  Here is the beautiful vintage ring he bought for her. Isn't it gorgeous, he picked it all by himself.

Just so that this is ligit here on my cardmaking blog, I had better show you a picture of the card I have made for them. I hope they like it.

Congratulations Ash & Gabe, we couldn't be more thrilled. Love you both lots and lots.
 Thanks everyone else for looking.

March Technique Class + Anniversary Card

Here are two gorgeous boxes that we will be making at the next Technique of the Month Class on Tuesday 6th March. Contact me if you would like to come. The first one is a six sided box made using the Mini Milk Carton Die from Stampin' Up! I've used Black and Crumb Cake card stocks and Mocha Morning, specialty designer series paper, and crumb cake seam binding ribbon.   You can't tell from the photo, but the designer paper is flocked, I think it looks very elegant.

The second box uses the Fancy Favour XL die and the Blossom Party & the Swirls Scribbles Dies for the flower on the front. The card stock is Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral, and the DSP in the Free pack 'Everyday Enchantment' available at the moment throught the great Sale a bration promotion.

Finally, here is a card I made the other day for a friend's wedding anniversary.  This uses the same Everyday Enchantments DSP, Poppy Parade and Very Vanilla card Stock.  The hearts are 'Scalloped Heart of Hearts' Embosslits die. 

Hope you like these.
Bye for now.
