N&G Bookkeeping & Accountancy Services, personalised business card and leaflet holders

The lovely Nicole Middleton visited my stall at the Cuerden Valley Park Farmers and Craft market recently and asked if I would be able to make her some business card holders, her business cards are slightly bigger than mine so I needed to change the dimensions slightly. We talked about the design I could use and decided it would be better to use the company logo as the background. I offered to make a sample holder for her to see if she liked it.

Fortunately she did like it and also asked if I would be able to make some holders to display her leaflets. I adapted the business card holder and was really pleased with them.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge October

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jillian Selwood

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

The lovely Sally Shaw of Sally's Stampers designed our sketch this month and here it is:

This was a tough one for me, sorry Sally, and I didn't like the first card I created so here's the second attempt.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge October 2016. Watermelon Wonder

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White and then a layer of Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Then I used two pieces from the Watermelon Wonder DSP stack, the text and the flowers. When I put the two strips of cardstock on my card I thought they looked a little lost so I added some 1/8" silver ribbon which I think lifts it.

The sentiment is from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.

Card swap August

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

The theme for August's Card swap was Trees and Flowers. I have wanted to make a diarama card for a while now after watching Jan Brown's tutorial. You can view Jan's tutorial here

Diarama card, Lovely as a Tree, May Flowers framelits, Botanical Builder framelits

It does look rather complicated but was so easy and I am so pleased with the finished result. I die cut out lots of small flowers from the Botanical Builder framelit dies and the May flowers framelit dies in Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach cardstock and used the new enamel dots in the centre. 

The trees are from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

The card I received from Nicky May is beautiful. I love how she has cut the different coloured frames, I will have to CASE that idea!

Next month the theme is to make a punch art card for a boy.

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.

One sheet wonder, Stampin' Up! DSP

I really don't think I would ever do any crafting if I didn't case other people's work. (Case stands for Copy And Share Everything). Jan Brown is one of my go to people for inspiration and her You Tube tutorials are excellent, She makes everything look so easy. This is another Jan Brown case! Her video is here.

There are super easy to make and have been a real hit at the Craft fairs I have done recently.

Hello you thinlits, One sheet wonder

In true Jillian form I didn't just make 1! All they take is one sheet of 12 x 12 double sided paper. I have used an extra piece to decorate the notelets.
