Sweet Valentine!

With just 2 weeks until Valentine's Day, I thought I'd put together some ideas.  Here I've used the You Are Loved heart as a background stamp which I have inked and embossed on the layers, along with the wings and leaves from the Bird Punch.  The Red Glimmer Paper is just perfect for this occasion.

You Are Loved (Spring Mini p12 123777 wood £28.95)
Glimmer Paper (Spring Mini p13 121790 Red £3.95)
Bird Builder Punch (IBC 2011-12 p119 117191 £15.50)

Sewing Saturday!

It's been such a long time since my sewing machine saw the light of day.  So I thought I'd give it a wee treat today and created this very simple handtowel.

Using Stampin' Up! fabric Candy Cane Christmas and a very inexpensive towel from Ikea, I created this beautiful towel for using in the bathroom or kitchen.  This would make a lovely housewarming gift, lovingly created with that personal touch.

Candy Cane Christmas is a selection of 3 100% cotton fabrics - each pieces measures approx. 68.8 x 45.7 cm.  £8.95 p105 of the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue.
