Gorgeous New Kitchen
Good to see you have moved your craft stuff back in!
Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Pinch, Punch first of the month, I can't believe its July already !! we have a jam packed blog post today, so we best get straight to it.......
First up we have Brenda L's Challenge card, This card that Brenda made was for her Son In Law,
I love the 'Taxi Stamp' Stamp, one of Brenda's new purchases along with London Bus Stamp, two great Crafters Companion 'Men' Embossing Folders, Clocks and the Happy Birthday folders, I think that the 'Happy Birthday' folder would work for either ladies or men though! Brenda also bought a Star Die set, so very versatile, there are so many fabulous cards with stars on on Pinterest.
I love what you did with the London Taxi stamp on your card Brenda, tying the stamp colours in with ribbon that you used, all it needed was the Sentiment stamp to finish the card, thank you Brenda for sharing your card and craft shopping with all of us. I would love to have seen Ciara's card for her Daddy too. xxx
Val, wow you did some fabulous shopping while you were over here at the weekend, what a fantastic selection of goodies you bought, some glitter card and adhesive gems, I love that rose embossing folder, the card toppers from Hobby House and the Disney Tigger ones too, a Die sire die and that lovely Sue Die too, craft mat, cutting mat, Ribbon, Cotton, Sewing Pattern (can't wait to see your dressmaking skills), Colour clouds and Washi Tape, wow what an amazing Haul, thank you so much for sharing xxx
Karen you have the most exciting shopping this week with your new Die Cutting machine, I love my Platinum Machine, like you one of the biggest bonus's of this machine was that you could use your Grand Calibur plates, which are so much better than the perspex ones that it comes with! You also said that the other plus point for you was the fact that they are bringing out the Motor part for it at a later date, so no more cranking the handle, this machine is quite hard to turn too! I will warn you though that it did crack my junior pink plate, not sure why as I was just embossing a regular die.
The other fab point is that there are no confusing plate combinations, you use your base plate as the blue plate of the grand calibur, or the clear plates that it comes with. I think that you are going to love your new machine, it takes a little bit of gettting used to but only a couple of go's and you will be in the swing of it. You also bought the Memory Box Number dies, you will use these loads, they are so versatile and add that extra personalisation to a card, you never find a '28th' birthday card for instance, do you?! I can't wait for your feed back on the machine Karen, thank you so much for sharing your purchases with all of us xxx
Michele you have bought some more CD rom's, so fabulous ones too, where they from Kraftyhands close down sale? I hope so because that means you got bargains too! You are after all the queen of bargain hunting! And amazing at making fantastic cards with CD roms, I can't wait to see the cards you make with your new buys, thank you so much for sharing xxx
Anne, I love all of your new buys, I was watching the Bee Crafty lady (Bev i think) use the Brusho's at Ally Pally and they were amazing, you could use them in so many ways it was incredible, they can take the place of inks, spritz's, paints, pens and the new pixie powders too! The Inkyliscious stamps are gorgeous, I loved what you did with the Dream stamp, the water droplet one used with the clear and white Sakura Gel Pens looks incredibly realistic. The Honeydoo stamp is gorgeous too, lace and ribbon and some fab card stock complete your amazing haul, I am so excited to see the cards that you make with all of these new goodies Anne, thank you for sharing xxx
How fantastic is Maria's New Kitchen????? Oh Maria it is so amazing I love everything, it all looks so sleek and streamlined, I love the white units with the dark work surface and your wall colour looks very much like all of our favourite Periwinkle Blue!!
The sink looks so amazing in white, very classy! I am literally so excited for you, I bet you can't wait to get in and unpacked and start using all that extra space. I love that you have started moving your craft things back in already, hey you should have had one of those fancy craft cupboards intergrated into the kitchen too (Rick didn't need to know), then when they were all out you could pull open the doors and have all of your craft stuff in one place, oh I wish I had given you the idea sooner! hahahaha
Thank you so very much for sharing your fabulous new kitchen with us, we have all been so excited to see your finished kitchen xxx
I am so sorry for this huge post ladies, I didn't want to leave anything or anyone out xx
Love and Hugs
