Sneak peek and a pretty petal

Here's the peek for my next class to be held on Wednesday 19th August. We will be using the pick a petal stamp set and sweet always design papers. Will post pictures nearer the time :)
This was my little project this afternoon. Another one of Lauren Meader's new templates, pretty petal pocket. Its really easy and quick to put together and so sweet... I love it :)

I have used my favourite colours chocolate chip and rose red cardstock and design papers and the pick a petal stamps to make the flower on the front. The little tag on the front is a sentiment from the one of a kind stamp set.
Enjoy the rest of your evening!

I managed to make time to have a little play with Lauren's new template last night. It's the milkmade one and I've made it so the tops lift off. I haven't taken a pic of that yet as I can't find anything small enough in the house to fit them. They are rather cute and petite :)

I used real red and old olive cardstock and the lovely summer picnic design papers. The stamp is from the tart and tangy set.
Apologies for the photo background but it was better light outside rather than in!!!
I will be posting pics for the next class at some point over the next few days I may post a sneak peek later :) x

Thank you gift and a card

I loved Jenny's shadow box card in this months craft stamper magazine so I had a go at making my own. I used the A rose is rose stamp set and decorated the large rose in the middle with stampin' glitter. I think this will go with the hand bag I made for Laura's teacher as the thank you card.

I love this template from Lauren Meader, (desk top organiser) I think it is definately my favourite. This set of thank you notelets uses the so saffron design papers and card stock. I think it looks so pretty.

These are the notelets which is very vanilla cardstock cut to 4.25"x 5.5" and stamped with the apple from tart and tangy and thank you from wonderful words.
I used stampin' up envelopes, but as they are too big I cut .5" off the side edge (after sticking the flap down) and then used a 2" piece of DSP punched 1 long edge with the scallop edge punch, scored at1" and adhered to the cut edge to make a new flap.
