Lift off Book mark card with SU Bee Mine - published rather late!! OOPs!!

 This project is a delightful card and small gift in one that I made in February but never published! How did that happen?!!  It makes a thoughtful present for an avid reader and would be lovely to pop inside a book given as a present. I have grandchildren who would love these, so I know how to use the fun Bee Mine suite from the Mini Catalogue. We don’t make as many Valentine’s cards here in the UK as I understand are sent in the US, but the designs and stamps are such fun.

This is also a great way to use your punches or any of the nesting dies to vary the design and you can either fussy cut an image from the DSP or stamp.  You could also make these with young people. What a fun activity for the weekend or school holidays!

New Stampin'Up! Facebook Group

Good afternoon everyone,

To keep all my Stampin'Up! projects together, I have started a new Facebook group specifically for them. I have started inviting some crafty friends and I hope some other like-minded crafters will find their way to join us too. 

It's called Stampin'Up with Elegant Edges and you can find it Here   In case you can't see it, here is the URL:


I hope that it will be a small crafty community where we can come together to share our love of crafting. I will be solely using Stampin'Up! projects to create my projects and fun/fancy fold cards that I love. I don't know how many of my crafty friends have actually tried SU so this is where I hope to introduce the wonderful products that I love to them and encourage them to share their own interpretations of my projects. 

With this in mind, I will post instructions in the Files on that Facebook page and where there is a YouTube tutorial I will pop a link on here. Not every project will be on YT, but there will still be instructions in the Facebook group's files.

I will continue to post pics of my Craft Consortium projects on here and on my Elegant Edges FB group so I can separate the work I do for the two companies. 

Thanks as ever for supporting me.
