Large Numbers Clock

Morning , sorry to have been missing last week , my beautiful Labrador Katie was unwell , she has a liver shunt and she had a bit of a crisis last week , but she's much better now.
We also picked up an 8 month old puppy from a rescue kennels on Saturday, he's called Charlie and he belongs to my daughter.

So bit manic especially through the night when Daniel wakes up , then the puppy wants the toilet , then Katie needs to go because her diuretic tablets make her need to go a lot !!!!!

So onto crafting now , firstly I have a giveaway over on my Facebook page Frans Crafts , I have 6 2015-2016 Stampin' Up Catalogues , plus the Spring Summer supplement , all items are available in the catalogues until 31st May , I will also print out the retiring list to go with them so you can grab some bargains before some products disappear, lots of yummy things have reductions so worth a look! If you would like anything, please place an order online ASAP as items go out of stock very quickly! Use this hostess code, and I'll send you a free gift next month HZX2RDTP , so the first 6 people to comment ME will be sent the catalogues for free, 1st class , so what are you waiting for pop on over now !! 

The retiring list has all the products on that will be going forever or maybe changing how they are put together , for example the clock I'm going to share with you today , the number dies I have used are part of a bundle , but the bundle is on the retiring list , however the stamps and dies will still be available but just not together.

So here is my clock , I have used some papers that had been in the recent Sale-A-Bration leaflet for the background , and then used the number dies from the Number of Years Bundle .

And here is the video to accompany this post .

So I hope you have enjoyed my post today,
Happy Crafting , 
Fran xx

ps. Here is a little sneak from a kit that will be coming up in the new catalogue which starts on June 1st. Stampin' Up have a few new kits coming out , they are very useful for people who want to have a try at crafting without having to buy loads of stuff to start with.

Spring Spring Card

Morning all, well when I made the card yesterday , that I am sharing with you today , I chose lovely spring colours because it was lovely and sunny , but now it's all wet again.

On Tuesday I went to a card class that my Stampin' Up upline Ruth was running , we made butterfly cards.

One of the cards we made was this one.

So I took this as inspiration to make my own take on the card , and this is what I made yesterday.

I wanted it to be a lovely bright card , so the Hello Honey card stock was just right.

Here is the video on how I have made the card.

Hope you have enjoyed visiting , as always the supply list is below.

Lots and lots of cards .................................................

Morning , just popping on to share all the cards I have been making recently using different stamp sets from Stampin' Up .

Instead of my usual list at the end of my post , I will link up to the items used as we go , as I have made so many different ones and ,some are retired stamps, it would end up being a very long list !!!

For this set of cards I have used the Up, Up and Away set , which unfortunately is a retired stamp set .

These cards have been made using the Watercolor Wings Bundle , the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the Timeless Textures set , with the sentiments coming from the Tin of Cards set.

The stamps used on these cards are a stamp set that was in the recent Sale-A-Bration catalogue , and the sentiments are a retired set.

This is another set of cards that were made with products from the recent Sale-A-Bration brochure, I have used the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set and some papers also from the brochure.

Here are the cards that I have made using the Something For Baby Bundle  , I have also used them for some name signs which I did a post for on Friday.

This set of cards have been made using the Flower Patch Bundle .

Thank you for visiting today, be back soon

Stampin' Up Something For Baby

Morning , so today sees another post from me , and also another You Tube video.

I'm sharing today some signs I made yesterday using the lovely Something For Baby Bundle  from Stampin' Up . It's a lovely stamp set and the matching dies are useful as they give a lovely clean cut.

I had also used the stamps and dies to make some cards, but I wanted to also show that they can be used for Home Decor too.

I used any names on these just as an example , but they could be left with no names , or New Baby could be put on , or anything you choose.

The die cut elements would also look great in a photo frame or a scrapbook page.

Thank you for visiting today,

Crafting Musketeers - DT make

Hi all , welcome back to Fran's Crafts , today I am sharing with you my DT make for the Crafting Musketeers Blog.

The theme is " Spring is in the Air " and the sponsor is Crafty Sentiments , it's well worth popping over to the blog to join in.

The team were given some images to work with , I chose the Teddy Bear and we also had a sentiment to go with it.

I decided to create a simple card with the image and sentiment being on white card so they stood out.
I'm in to doodling around the edges at the moment so you may see that on my cards at the minute.

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you can pop over to the blog to join in the challenge.
