Layered Labels- A new love affair

Hello there I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am posting quickly before I get back to my craft table finishing off some table decorations for the RETREAT, I cannot believe it is next week!!!! I am soo excited and the ladies attending are  to I am wishing this next week away just so I can be there with them and have a fabaroonie time. There is  ONE MORE PLACE LEFT and if you would like to treat yourself  to a full weekend of indulgence and crafty happiness please get in touch with me I would love to have you there. Find more details HERE.

Today I am sharing a little sneak peak from the upcoming catalogue, I have been crafting so much over the last few weeks and I am spoilt to death with lots of new exciting products. And as its often the case I fell in love with a few of these products like the Layered Labels set and matching framelits. I have been using it non stop since getting it. And here’s a little Congrats card and matching gift for Cal a team member who achieved a very prestigious Award  in her Stampin’Up! career, the 1st Rising Star in the UK.

The image was inked in Summer Starfruit first then I took my soft suede marker and  picked the odd detail here and there.  The congratulations is part of the same set and has a gorgeous label around it.

Then I took another of my fave new things, the crumb cake tulle (I think I am on my 4 th pack already) and tied it into a bow. Topped it with a bronze button and a vintage faceted button (these are DIVINE) also available from the 1st Oct. in the new book. Here’s a little close up

Looks YUM doesn’t it?

I sent along a little gift for Cal and made a matching tag on the gift bag.

Till next time big hugs xxx
