Weekly Deals - Favourite Framelits and more...

This week's deals are off and running with some great offers for everyone and some of my favourites available at 25% off...

The Labels Collection Framelits were a revelation to me when they arrived on the scene a couple of years ago.  They were the first Framelits ever offered by Stampin' Up! (kicking off a long line up of fabulous ones ever since) and with an array of nested sizes in the set, they are still one of my go to cutting options when I need a sweetly shaped focal point for a project....

I've used two sizes of the Labels Framelits on this card, the top one turned perpendicular as opposed to nesting inside of the larger one underneath.  I love this as an option, as it provides the opportunity to embellish with some pretty trim behind, in this case, a short length of the gorgeous Venetian Crochet Trim and some Early Espresso Baker's Twine tied in a bow.

On the subject of Baker's Twine, I sometimes take issue with the fact that the ends of it can tend to have a mind of their own, so I came up with a way of taming the flyaway ends...

I sandwiched each loose end of the twine between two of the middle sized Pearl Basic Jewels -being adhesive backed, they stick to the twine and sort of also to each other to form a little round pearly ball that both weighs down the crazy end bits and look pretty and decorative all at the same time.

It's the little things...

Another of the little details that I love on this card is the decorative scalloped edge, achieved with a combination of the Large Scallop Edgelit - also one of this week's deals - and the lacy Delicate Designs embossing folder...

The new and fabulous Stampin' Blendabilities got a guernsey on this card too.  I have always loved to colour in, watercolouring being my previous method of choice, but the arrival of the Blendabilities has added an exciting new avenue to explore and I have been thoroughly enjoying doing so...

The subtle blending that can be achieved with the Blendabilities make my heart happy and it's so easy to replicate.

I am planning some Blendabilities sessions, so keep an eye and an ear out for those and plan to join me for some colouring therapy soon!

Make a plan also to grab any of the current deals that are on offer - before next Tuesday while they're 25% off!
