Baby Bear for Myah

I've had a wonderful time playing with the beautiful new Baby Bear stamps from Stampin' Up!

I needed to make a special card for a new baby Myah whose parents are family friends Mel and Dan. I couldn't find any Stampin Up papers that I loved for this project so I used a piece of paper from my before SU stash.  What do you think? Of course I had to make a special envelope card with my Envelope Punch Board and then wrap the present to co-ordinate too.  Fortunately there are lots Stampin' Up! products that I could use to match this paper.

Ok so then I got to thinking that I now have to create a full Stampin' Up! version of this card that I will do a workshop/class on very soon.

I don't know what this fun fold is called, I learnt it recently at a Craft Show.

Here is the second version

A side view to this lovely card and it stands up really well too.

I love it so much and I could picture the new Baby Bear stamp set and our Botanical Builder Flowers to compliment this card beautifully.  Sometimes my mind can see clearly a lovely card, and this is my completed creation.  Must say I do love this!

I tried a few colour combinations of the bears and this one uses Pink Pirouette as the layer 1, Pretty In Pink as layer 2 (this colour is retired now but you could use Blushing Bride instead)  The new In Colour Sweet Sugarplum as layer 3.  I like to reverse the layers when stamping, I find it easier to line up the layers starting with the darkest colour first.  If you are not aware, it is a three step stamp set. I have given the lovely bow a coat of clear Wink of Stella for a little sheen.

Now I had a few bears left over so I created this next card with the left overs.  The 3rd layer of the bear is Rich Razzleberry.

Now to decide what other new stamp set I am going to play with tonight!!  Decisions, decisions!

I've been working on a tutorial for the fun fold card but it wasn't easy to write, so I've done my best for you if you want to try it.  I will try to improve the instructions soon.
Here is my TAMS link as it is now

Until next time

My New Craft Room Reno

Hi everyone!

It has been a very exciting time for me.  My Husband Tony and I have been doing a bit of reno work to freshen up our home.  We had a formal lounge room which we never used, well hardly, and a family room where we watched tv and I had a trestle table set up as my craft table.  So my dear hubby suggested that we have the formal lounge as our tv room and convert the family room in to my very own craft room!

Here are some photos of the room so far

Table set up for Make and Takes at my Catalogue Launch

                                      Lots of space for my stamps and other supplies

                                        Another view with the table set up

                                       Double desks side by side and lots of lovely drawers too!

You can just imagine how happy I am, can't you?  I held my Catalogue Launch here last Sunday and I was so happy with the way the day turned out.
I still have lots of sorting out when I get some spare time.  But, at least I now have a designated room to be able to get it done!   My launch was a real success.    I am very happy to have some new ladies who would like to join in on the monthly workshops here in the future which is just awesome!

Ok well that's it for today, I'll be back real soon to share some projects from the new catalogue with you.

Until then

Happy stampin
