I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Sail Away.......


How nice has the weather been?  Maybe not everywhere, but my back garden has been so sunny.  I'm sure the water is still chilly, but being at the beach these past few days would have been lovely I'm sure.
With that thought in mind, late this afternoon I decided to pick up my new Sail Away stamp.  This is in the mini catalogue right now and is an "a la carte" stamp, great value, and really good for male cards.  Always something I struggle with a bit.

So I was in the bathroom earlier on, stay with me as this is leading somewhere, and I happened to notice the box of tissues and it made me wonder if I could stamp on tissue.  I'd been thinking of using this stamp with vellum, but I don't have any, so thought I'd give the tissue a go.

Let me know what you think.......  personally I think it turned out pretty good.

I used two way glue pen to adhere it to the marina mist card which I had embossed with the lattice squares embossing folder.  It really helps to just add something a little extra to the card.
I do feel something is lacking in the top right corner though, so will be adding a couple of perfect plum brads, but they won't be here until my order arrives on Wednesday.

Hope you like it xxx
