All day training swaps

Today (weather permitting) I am off to Pudsey for our Julie's Jems Quarterly All day Training event.
This was the one which had to be cancelled due the snow two weeks ago.
here are my swaps - I made 45 of these!!

I made the same design in three different colour ways, 
Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo.
I used the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,
SAB Sycamore Street DSP, ribbons and buttons.
For the flowers I used the Boho Blossom and Itty Bitty flower punches.
The  sentiment on the buttons is stamped using the  "Hello" from the SAB Pretty Petites stamp set 
then punched with a half in circle.
Basic pearls embellishments.

Looking forward to getting 45 swaps in return!!


  1. There all great love the different cols xxx

  2. Crikey! I bet you were seeing these cards in your sleep after making 45 of them lol. Love the style and the colours, glad you had a great day, enjoy your dinner x

  3. They are pretty, bet it took you forever to finish them all x

  4. I chose Island Idigo but they were all lovely! xx

  5. Fabulous. Love that embossing folder - my favourite colourway is the Tangerine Tango. Helen xx

  6. What a fantastic idea, Kate - I love the designs. The embossed background provides the perfect template for the decorations - think the top colour way is my favourite. Hope you got lots of lovely swaps back in return.

    Thanx for your comments on my blog, hun and for following - just off to follow you now too :)

    Think we are both in the same town! Not sure how far away.

    Sorry you had to put up with Linda S today. I try to keep her under control but sometimes she escapes and it's just so embarrassing! Lol.

    1. She tried to escape detection by having curly hair you know - but we spotted her!! Mind you - she was on her best behaviour!!

  10. Beautiful cards the CAS design hun.
