Jems Blog Hop to celebrate lots of new Spring Summer & Sale A Bration products!!

Hello and welcome to The Craft Spa in the UK... to 2018... and to the Jems Blog Hop to welcome the new Spring Summer Catalogue and Sale A Bration! 

And for those of you that visited me yesterday... no it is not Groundhog Day... just my double Blog Hop for the first weekend in the month!
So ... staying with one of my favourite suites in the new Spring Summer (aka Occasions) catalogue... Picture Perfect Party... 
Picture Perfect Party
This suite is light & bright with photographic images & co-ordinating photopolymer stamps & Stampin Spots to get the party going... and keep it going... definitely perfect for birthday makes... and for making you feel happy whilst you are making them!

But 2 very different cards for you today... with some extra peeks of some non Picture Perfect Party Suite products!

First up... a card for a special birthday event... I couldn't resist cutting out the 1 & 2 balloons on the one piece of paper... and instead of doing the more obvious 12... I went for a sparkly 21st birthday celebration instead...
Couple of embossing folders used here... the Picture Perfect Party Suite Simple Stripes for the large mat... and the blink and you will miss it, Scattered Sequins from the Sweet Soiree Suite. Easy to miss as I have then covered the embossed sequins with the tiny hexagonal Gold Glitter Flakes from the Painted With Love Suite... 

And a tip for you as these tiny flakes were really easy to apply! Little dot of Tombow on the blunt end of my pokey tool (aka Paper Piercing Tool)... followed by a teeny tiny dot on the embossed sequins... Pick up a flake on the blunt end of the pokey tool and place onto embossed sequin ... and voila! So easy I put a flake on nearly every embossed sequin!
Mounted onto Gold Foil and Berry Burst cardstock... And finished off with glittery Gold Trim for the string ... also from the Painted With Love Suite...
Second up... a simple DL sized card... with proof that the photographic images on the paper are really life-like and clear!! As I don't think you will spot why I made this card!!

Well the central hat does not have a pom pom in the papers... so here is a perfect use of the Mini Gift Bows for you... giving a very 3D pom pom to finish it off... honest! Maybe you can spot it on the next photo...
Greeting from the fabulous Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in Bermuda Bay, paper and stamped white card mounted onto Lemon Lime Twist...and then onto my Whisper White DL card blank... and Gold 1/8" Ribbon to finish off as it is about the same width as the frill on the hat. 
If you like what you see... and want to see more of this Suite... please pop back back a day's post for the other Blog Hop featuring more projects using the Picture Perfect Birthday suite... as once I started I just couldn't stop! But do remember to hop round this Blog Hop first!

  6. Love the idea of using the number balloons for special birthdays! At first I thought the papers were a bit too bright but now I think they are going to be a must have!

  7. Those number balloons look so realistic, I thought they were something in the catalogue that I had missed! But.... I had missed those glitter flakes and they will be on my next order, along with these papers. You really do have a lot to answer for sis!! Great projects!!
