I'm so loving the time I'm having at the moment experimenting with different mediums and techniques and this time I've used another 'pop'/' soda' can to cute a flower shape and then emboss it both using the Stampin' Up! Big Shot. 

The Love Letter dsp is quite striking itself and so it a great team mate for my tin can flower!  The leaves are also made using my BS and the little leaves sizzlit.  A bit of pizzazz with some rhinestones and a little piece of hodge podge silver hardware to frame my sentiment.  Another favourite of mine and many others is the En Francais background stamp. It's just so darn useful and so effective as a backdrop to many a project.

Today I've been preping for my visit to the WI tomorrow evening where I have a class of 30 ladies all making a gift bag. We are going to have fun and Olivia has bravely volunteered to come along and help me.  Any excuse to stay up longer than her little bro'. 

I've also prepped my scrapbook club project for my inaugural scrapbook session on Tuesday.  We'll be making two 12"x 12" layouts with the theme of family.  If you'd like to join the club you can at any stage. At your first session you pay for a designer series print album and receive materials for the two layouts.  It's just £22.50 and then each subsequent session is £10 and also includes all the materials for two layouts with spare to take home and carry on the theme.    The club will run on the second Tuesday of every month and you need to book by the Tuesday prior to each session.  There are limited spaces so please book early.  I'll be back with a pic of the layout soon.

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend and make this a great week.
Hugs Zx

  1. Hi Zoe, another lovely card :) I just wondered if the edges are sharp though, do you have to warn people?

    Thanks for your help, my blog problem is now sorted :)
    Have a good day x

  2. Hi Sue, no the edges are not sharp remarkably. It's a fun technique and a good recycling method too!
