A Touch Of Emerald

For the last two years I have been putting together "In Colour Kits".

These have proven to be quite popular. Especially when you can purchase a range of quality Stampin' Up! supplies in an affordable kit, all in the one coordinating colour.....and delivered to your door.

As a bonus for those participating in my club that runs for 5 months, I make a card in that months colour, using an assortment of the items that are in the kit, to showcase what you can do with the product.

This is the card I made for July in the new 2016-2018 In Colour Emerald Envy.

I'm not a green gal but I quite like this card!

I list of the supplies I have used features below.

Until next time

Strawberry Sketches SS007

Hi everyone!

As soon as I saw this weeks Strawberry Sketches Sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
The hardest part was picking the colour combo!
Although to be honest, I didn't use the first stamp set I originally chose either.

But that's the beauty of card making, you can just play around with it until you are happy.

So here is this weeks sketch

Here is what Sarah made

and here is what I made

I have been itching to start using the stunning products from the new Holiday Catalogue.

I love christmas because I get to make LOTS of christmas cards.

The colour combo simply came from flicking the holiday catalogue open straight to page 5 and laying eyes on the Candy Cane Lane suite.

Crumb Cake and Real Red are a match made in heaven......as Jamie Oliver would say "they are best mates".

Loved making this card.
Thanks once again to Sarah for inspiring me to create.

A list of the products I have used is listed below.
Until next time

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Thank you for joining us for another August Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.
If you haven't joined us before, Welcome!

You may have just come from the previous person or you may be starting here at my blog Michelle Mills. If you lose your way and get off track, there is a full list of this hops participants at the bottom of this post.

I hope as you hop around you find lots of ideas and inspiration for your projects.

For this hop, our special guest is U.S. Demo Wendy Cranford at 

As always, we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the guest.

I chose this project of Wendys to CASE.

When I first saw this, I fell in love with it immediately.
The colours, the layout, everything about it appealed to me.
So I turned it into a christmas card because the colours reminded me of christmas.

I have also used some of the new products from the soon to be released Holiday Catalogue which won't appear in the supplies list below. (not until the 1st Sept).
I have also used a now retired circle punch, the 2 1/2" Circle punch for the Larger Silver Glimmer circle.
Thanks to my good friend Vicki at Vics Artistic Creations for letting me use her newly aquired goodies to make this card for the hop.

I'm really happy with how this came out.
I think I may use this design, with a few adjustments, for the christmas cards I make for the troops.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
Be sure to keep hopping all the way around to see the rest of the amazing projects.

A list of supplies I have used to make this project features below.
(with the exception of the 2 Holiday Catalogue products and the 1 retired punch)

Until next time

Strawberry Sketches SS006

Hi everyone!
Yep, it's that time of the week again and again, I'm entering the weeks sketch challenge.

I'm having so much fun every week coming up with something based on the sketch.

Its great for motivation and getting the ideas flowing.
If you havent entered a sketch challenge before, I highly recommend it.
Why not jump in and join Strawberry Sketches?

Here is this weeks sketch
This is what Sarah made

and here is my interpretation

I decided to follow Sarahs lead and I also turned my card to design it landscape rather than portrait,
just for something different.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
Below is a list of the items I used to make this card.

Until next time
