Welcome to our Mixed Up Saturday where we share just about anything with each other, well we are all very dear friends aren't we?!
Janet has made theses stunning hanging decorations, they look like something a bridesmaid could carry at a Wedding as they are so beautiful.One looks like it's made from a stunning flower tulle, with pretty pearls adorning their centres. The other is decorated with stunning Lace Heart Appliques, Janet you are so very talented when it comes to making anything with lace, these two are exquisite. Thank you so much for sharing XXX
Diecutting Essentials this month comes with a great freebie-the wine bottle & glass are very useful for so many occasions. Lots of articles in the magazines featuring the freebies. Christmas cards are starting to appear in the magazines now.
Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine-comes with a set of 5 border embossing folders which are lovely but I'm unlikely to use them so they'll go in my EBay sales box!
Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine comes with a great set of Dies this month which work alongside the bottle set from Diecutting Essentials. Quite a few articles showing different ways to use all the Dies. Great article on Spotlight Stamping and again, quite a few Christmas cards in this
This has just arrived (Papercraft Inspirations) and has a lovely snowflake border Die free this month. There's some lovely free papers inside the magazine-Autumn themed which should be very useful.
That's it until the next batch of magazines arrive!!
Thank you so much Michele for purchasing and reviewing the magazine's for all us, it's great to get a look at what freebies you actually get. Thanks you for your time XXX
Karen saw this "Papercuts" die and just had to buy it, I think you are like me Karen in that you don't buy too many Christmas stamped and Dies, as you only get to use them once a year, whereas with other dies you get to use to them throughout the year.
This die is so detailed and beautiful Karen, I think it will last you years!
Thank you for sharing
Brenda has treated her to some more amazing Stampin'Up! Stamps, paper and matching ribbon, in beautiful colours. I can't wait to see what cards you make with all of these new goodies Brenda, I bet you don't know where to start, I usually Check out Pinterest to see what everyone else has done with a stamp set, it gives you some great ideas. I also bought a 'Cool Melt ' glue gun, but for me the 'jury is still out'!
I can't make up my mind about it, I found the glue sticks a little bit stringy and found it hard to do just a tiny drop, so I will be very interested to see how get on with it.
Thank you so much for sharing your shopping Brenda XXX
Thank you to all of you that took part in today's blog post, I really do appreciate it when you all participate. I love sharing your crafting journey too.
We should hopefully be well clear of Paris by the time this blog post goes live, we did discover that we are traveling on one of the busiest weekends in France, but fingers crossed we can get a good bit done before it gets too busy!
Have a lovely weekend ladies,
Love and hugs to all,
