Mother’s Day 2017

Don’t freak out – I’m a day early on the Mother’s Day celebrations!

Nanna Papercraft goes away today so we celebrated last night.

Which means I can share my 2017 Mother’s Day card and gift with you, just in case you’re a deadline runner (like me) and it helps with anything you’re creating this weekend!

Mother’s Day 2017 is all about new catalogue sneak peeks!

Nanna Papercraft’s card is made using the upcoming Wood Textures DSP (absolutely gorgeous), Lovely Words Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Glitter Enamel Dots, Finely Woven Ribbon, Copper Trim and 2 of the new In Colors – Berry Burst & Powder Pink!

That’s a whole lot of new lovelies in my stash!!!  Feeling very lucky right now!

It’s such a wonderful perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demo to have all these items to play with before the catalogue release next month!

And of course, there’s always all my favourites that are carrying over, like Thoughtful Banners.


To match her card, I made a decorated paper cube to go on her craft desk.

The copper trim is truly amazing!  It’s coiled tightly along, but a little teasing and it forms all kinds of shapes.  You have to see this in person!!!

In an absolute stroke of luck, Kmart are currently selling these paper cube pads with rose gold (copper) edging and pink dot pages, which matched my project perfectly!

I do love a fabulously matching project – and if the stationary matches too, well, that just makes my day!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to Nanna Papercraft!  Hope the cocktails are cold, the seas calm and the other passengers aren’t too annoying!
