Baby Bunting .

Morning all , just popping by to say Hello and share my latest project with you.

I have made some baby bunting ready for an upcoming challenge that starts on Saturday but ssshhhhh, that's between us for now.

So as I had already made that I thought I would make another version and share with you now along with a You Tube Video.

I've used the stamp set Something For Baby from Stampin' Up , and the matching framelits.







Also I wanted to let you know of an offer that I am running over on my website Fran's Crafts for the whole of July.
As you know Stampin' Up are predominately Stamps , but they also have a lot of other lovely goodies, so what I am doing is creating 2 price bands and giving you some tasters of other things they do , so you can see the quality of the papers etc..... 
This will be starting from tomorrow , but here are July's tasters as a preview for you.

This is the £10 taster selection, which includes 6 sheets of cardstock , 12 double sided Designer Series Papers , 6 Bow Paper Clips and 2 packs of Bakers Twine in the above colours , plus 10 free envelopes.

This is the £20 taster selection ,which included 6 sheets of cardstock, 12 double sided Designer Series Papers, 6 White Doilies, 6 Bow Paper Clips, 1 small Project Life Album and 12 Photo inserts.
More details available on the website from tomorrow.

To accompany these offers I will be creating some You Tube videos , showing you how you can use the products, but these videos will not be available for everyone to view I'm afraid , for anyone who purchases these taster packs from me , they will be emailed a link to enable them to view the videos.

I have created these taster packs , for anyone to purchase , but they would be especially ideal for new crafters, or maybe if you have not come across Stampin' Up before , it is a good way of testing out some products .

Any way that is all from me for now.

Thanks

Get Well Wishes

Hi all , well I think the start of Summer has disappeared again, when I did my post last week it was very hot and sunny , today it's chucking it down with rain !!!

So yesterday on my Facebook Page I posted a picture of my tidy desk !!! Yes at last I managed to get it cleared again , ready to create . 


So after sitting for a while , as the puppy was sleeping on my knee, snoring his head off, I managed to get a card made , and recorded it for my You Tube channel. 

I decided to customise my card and create a background of my own design using 2 colours. It's an ideal way to do it if you can't find a background design that you like, and you can also pick your own colour scheme too.



And here is my video.


Last week I was also busy having a go at making a hessian/burlap wreath , I've wanted to have a go for ages . I'm quite happy with it though I think the hessian needs to be just a little wider.


But I have to say it was most relaxing making it , so watch this space for more .........

Thanks for visiting
Fran xx

Summers here ......

Morning on this bright and sunny morning , I hope everyone is ok.

I have a nice bright summery clock to share with you today , but before I do I just wanted to share some other pictures with you.

This is Katie's memorial planter , we popped her ashes box in the bottom and then planted some lovely lavender.

One of the iris in our garden.

This is another iris we have , this draws a lot of attention as people walk by.

The chicken pictures are finished at last and have gone off to their new home.

So onto the clock I made on Monday , I thought I would go for a nice summery feel on this one.

I have used the Number of Years  set along with the matching dies to create this one , using the In Colours  , all from Stampin' Up  .

I wanted to highlight that the stamps can also be used on home decor and not just limited to cards.






As usual I have done a video to accompany this project. After I had made this video , I decide to doodle lines on the numbers.


So that's all for today , I'm off now to create a new project that is something a little bit different, all will be revealed soon.

Thanks for stopping by,
Fran x
