Spiral Flower Bird Cage

by Joanne James16. February 2014 20:50

I've had a busy but productive day today exhibiting at the Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair at Diana's Health and Fitness Club in Wellingborough. Thank you to all of the lovely brides to be that came to say 'hello' to me in the Ruby lounge today - it was lovely to meet you all and I'm really looking forward to chatting with you again soon to begin the process of turning your stationery dreams into reality. Today I'm sharing one of the table decorations that I made for my exhibition display that received lots of positive feedback today - a birdcage decorated with flowers made with the new Spiral Flower Die:

I made these flowers in three co-ordinating colours of cardstock and finished the centre of each flower with a pearl, then added some satin stitched ribbon to finish. You could make something similar in any colour to tie in with your chosen wedding colour scheme - it would make a lovely table centre.

That's all from me today; I am crafting at a children's birthday party tomorrow so will share one of the projects we are doing with you in tomorrow's post.

Until then, happy stampin'!

Sale-A-Bration My Digital Studio Party Invitations

by Joanne James15. February 2014 21:50

I've had the busiest of days today, dominated by last minute preparations for the wedding fair I am exhibiting at tomorrow, so today I've just got time for a quick post to share with you something I made with another of the items you can receive free with a £45 spend during Sale-A-Bration.

There are two My Digital Studio digital ensembles available as part of this year's Sale-A-bration free gift offering - one of them is the 'Hooray for Parties' set, which includes some great designer templates for invitations, thank yous, treat holders and much more. Here's a party invitation I made with it using the basic layout:

This is a great package if you need to make lots of invitations or party bits and pieces and have limited time - you only need to design once, then can just print out as few or as many as you need. And it can be yours free with a spend of £45 or more during Sale-A-Bration before 31st March.

Another busy day ahead tomorrow; if you're local to me and a bride-to-be, do pop in to the Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair at Diana's in Wellingborough - I'll be there talking to brides about how they can make the wedding stationery of their dreams using Stampin' Up! products and I would love to see you too.

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Forever and Always - Preparation for the Wedding Season has Begun!

by Joanne James7. February 2013 20:59

Before I share more of my 'Feeling Sentimental' notelets with you, today I thought I'd let you know about the wedding fair I'm attending at the weekend and give you a sneak peak of the 'make and take' wedding invitation you could try your hand at if you come along.

I've been busy all week preparing samples for the Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair at Diana's Health Club in Wellingborough this Sunday (click here for more information). If you're a bride-to-be and would like to know how to make your own wedding stationery, then do come along and discover how easy it can be with a little help from me and some Stampin' Up! supplies. You can enjoy making everything from invititations to place settings, guest favours to room decorations - all colour-coordinated to tie in to your chosen theme.

If you are attending on Sunday, you will also have the opportunity to have a go and discover just how easy making your own stationery can be - just take a look:

 

This invitation in classic white allows you to have a go at a number of basic techniques: embossing the raised flower design with the Big Shot, a simple sentiment stamped in black, along with two punched butterflies to add interest. I'm sure you'll agree it looks great as it is, but with the addition of some pearls or colour, can be easily tied in to your theme or given even more of a 'wow' factor.

You may also be surprised at how easy on the purse-strings making such beautiful wedding stationery can be: you could make 40 invitations like the one above for just £67.90 including envelopes and still have ink, stamps, punch and an embossing folder to make co-ordinating items too. When you consider that the average UK bride and groom spend £465 on wedding stationery alone*, then this is nothing short of a bargain and definitely something to think about if you're getting married on a budget.

If you would like to discuss your wedding stationery needs, do come along on Sunday or contact me for further information on how I can help make your day as special and individual as you are.
