Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday for Coffee & Cards (a sneaky peak)!

Hello, this week for Coffee & Cards we will be doing something a little different;  we will be using a new stamp set called Perennial Birthday (available 3rd January) to make a pocket card and matching envelope.  We will also be making a beaded icicle at the special request of one of my crafty ladies after she saw the decorations I been helping the residents at a local care home make recently.

We will be using a striking colour palette of just three colours.


I had already decided that we would be making a pocket card next week and as I had Perennial Birthday out on my desk it seemed an obvious choice.  I had a quick look on Pinterest before I got cracking and came across a project made by Danielle Bennenk aka Mrs Brightside.  Danielle was one of the talented ladies who presented at On Stage in November - her projects are lovely (you can see Danielle's project here).  So, I decided to attempt to recreate a version of one of her projects.

Here are the projects we will be making next week.  We will be doing lots of cutting out so please make sure you bring a pair of scissors along with you to speed things up!

I love making these icicles - I realised recently that I have been making them for over 20 years now!  They are such fun to make for both children and adults.  If you would like to make extra icicles I will bring some additional kits with me for you to complete at home.  (Extra kits can be purchased for £1.90 each).

If you would like to join me for a Coffee & Cards session you can find me at the following locations next week:

Thanks to Danielle for providing such wonderful inspiration.

Hope you can join me for the last Coffee & Cards sessions for 2017! 

Wishing you a crafty weekend.  I will be wrapping my presents - love buying them, hate wrapping them.  The only way I get through the ordeal is a rather large G & T and a favourite CD - playing loudly!
