Well not really … but I have been playing with the lovely Brocade Basics stamp set. Now I blame my lovely friend Nikki Stalker for my addiction to this set!


This layout was totally cased from the 2008 Idea Book and Catalogue and as requested the lovely ladies at Thirlmere will be making this layout this week along with a few cards.

This is a 6×6 layout and so quick and easy to make yet very elegant at the same time. I am so in love with Old Olive so will be very happy to share that passion with the girls.


Stamps: So Many Sayings, Brocade Basics
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Always Artichoke
Paper: Old Olive Cardstock, Always Artichoke Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Close to Cocoa Designer Prints Paper, Brocade Background Designer Series Papers
Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Stampin Dimensionals, Stamp-a-majig, Paper Snips.

RegalPomegranateAfter my play day with Nikki back in May I created another card using Brocade Basics and the ‘Rock n Roll’ technique.

All the ladies at yesterday’s demonstration just loved this card so I hope you do too – they were a bit sad when I told them it wasnt the make and take but did get excited when I showed them what we would be making – so it all worked out in the end!

Gotta keep those customers happy!

The hostess was rather happy too with all the freebies she got – and who doesnt love free stamps??

Dont forget to check back tomorrow to see the card the girls made yesterday!
