Fancy Folds Blog Hop






Hello there,
I hope you are enjoying the warm weather, no one complains more about the weather here in the UK as I do which for a foreigner is quite the feat but I feel like we had a good SUMMER !!! and it seems its carrying on for a bit longer <3 p="">

But enough abut that you are here to see something pretty right? And you're in luck as its time for another Fancy Fold Blog Hop. I took a bit of time off (I know more time off) while I got on with some serious life but I am much better now so easing myself back into this wonderful creative world. 

Its a Peek- A-Boo fold we're creating today and the team have some fabulous examples to share with you, make sure you visit the whole hop and sprinkle some love via a comment on your journey ;)


Here's my example, our lovely neighbours are celebrating a wonderful milestone in their marriage so I created this card for them. 

For the front of the card I used two sets Numbers of Years and Crazy About You to create the smaller sentiments. The colour combo is Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Melon Mambo and some Pear Pizzaz. 




And as you open the card it flips t reveal the peek a boo piece which in this case its a fun message. !!! 20 years its a lovely milestone not many marriages manage it now a days. 




Here's a closer look to the front again, if you have any questions at all please let me know.



THAK YOU for visiting us all today, I hope you have enjoyed hopping with us and I hope you are inspired to give the peek-a-boo fold a try.

Hello Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello there,
Thank you for stopping to visit my blog as part of this fun hop. Lots of exciting new products and gorgeous projects.
I feel a bit of a cheat as having recently returned from an amazing Incentive Trip cruising along the Med with Stampin'Up!, time was a bit short to create a new masterpiece to share with you today but as luck would have it we made the most amazing projects while on the ship one morning using a new set that made me look at my stamps in a different way. The set is called Touches of Texture and the *technique* we used for these projects was colouring in with stamps. I will explain what I mean in a second, here they all are :)


The new Dapper Denim paired Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze.

And can you see how colour was added to the flower? Not perfect between the lines yet perfect as an overall look? the set has a tiny flower and a small grouping of spalters?? dots? whatever we call them they were used to add colour to the stem, so neat I thought..

Here's another card.. 


We used the matching Moroccan Designer Series Papers and matching Moroccan Designer Washi Tape to add accents, I loved that idea as I seem to never use my washi.

The leaves were coloured in using a *watercolour swish* from the same set. 

And lastly we made a gorgeous tag 




Ok so have fun on your blog hop by going to visit Sarah, all you have to do is click on next button :) Big hugs to you all, Monica xx
