Heart Happiness with the Painted with Love Suite

Hello and welcome to my blog today!  My creativity has returned just in time to take part in Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights for January!  The theme this time is Favourite Spring/Summer or Sale-A-Bration Catalogue Products.  


The best bit about this Highlight is that you can vote for your favourite projects.  I would love it if you would vote for my project HERE.  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so I would really appreciate it if you would VOTE for my project.  

You can see the Spring/Summer catalogues HERE or the Sale-A-Bration catalogue HERE.

Wow!  There are so many gorgeous products to be tempted by, but, the choice of what to use for this blog post was easy for me.  I truly have a soft spot for anything with hearts on, so my choice is to use the Sure Do Love You Bundle and the Heart Happiness stamps from the Painted with Love Suite in the Spring/Summer catalogue (see pages 18, 19 and 20).  I am so happy to see so many hearts!



On the first card I have used gold heat embossing on the delightful frame and the sentiment  to complement the gold details on the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All the gold details really shine!
  

The colours I have used are Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral.  I've added texture by using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder on the largest layer, wrapping Baker's Twine around the banner and lifting the sentiment and distressed heart up on dimentionals.  



Included within the Painted with Love Suite there are some new small and narrow notecards.  They are super cute and come in a pack of 20 notecards and envelopes, with the notecards measuring 6.4cm x 11.4cm, for £7.25.  I've used them with some more of the pretty papers and made a couple of quick and easy cards in no time at all!  The little "I'm Yours" heart reminds me of LoveHeart sweets!

 


These are my favourite new products...that is until I pick up another stamp set, which will then become my new favourite!  Which ones are your favourites?  

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I'd be delighted if you visited Kylie's blog to vote for my project.  I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

Happy Crafting,

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cheer Challenge


Last weekend I hosted two card making sessions, to support the great Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cheer Challenge.  What is this “Challenge”, I hear you ask?  Well, Stampin’ Up! was on a mission to make 10,000 Christmas cards for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).  RMHC provides free “home away from home” accommodation for families with children in hospital.


 For my sessions, I asked each attendee to make 10 greetings cards – utilising 5 different designs – and to donate half of them to the “Challenge”.  A good time was had by all and, in total, 108 cards were made, a lot of tea was drunk, and a fair few biscuits were eaten along the way (it is written somewhere that a card making army marches on its stomach – not too sure about that, but I can confirm that crafting is thirsty work!).  The pictures included here hopefully give a flavour of the days’ activities and the fruits of our labours!  Whoever thought that being part of a production line could be this much fun?  And all for a great cause, too.  A huge thank you to everyone who took part. 

   
I'm pleased to report that the final card count for the Christmas Card Challenge was 17,778!  What a whopping great number of cards donated to RMHC!  I'm so pleased to have been part of this event.
