Crafting on a cold Sunday

Had a small group of ladies today for craft. We're all thinking of Barbara who is recovering from surgery, Nicola is in sunny Brisbane on holiday, lucky! All of today's projects were made using retiring stamp sets, we did a vote on facebook and decided to use Established Elegance and Elements of Style, then I added French Foliage and Nature Walk. Following are the projects we made;

Convention project from Shelli

I love this card Shelli showed as part of her presentation of 25 projects at convention. I love how Shelli sews on her cards, I would love to give sewing a go, haven't tried it on a card yet.

Also love the dsp from Epic Day and the Washi Tape as seen in the This and That bundle. These will be getting lots of use in my craft room. I'm making good progress with my journal, should have some pictures soon.

Best of 25 Years Stamps

As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, SU are bringing back some of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will release—one set per month—until October 2014. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $31.95
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month) until October, all of the Best of sets will be available until April 2014.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
  • The stamp images may be sized differently from the original stamp sets.
