Weekly Challenge 4 – Water and Our Third Set of Pinkies Projects

Thanks to this week’s migraine I got a bit confused and muddled the posts up, so today is the Wednesday challenge 😆

For a challenge about water, it seemed fitting to use watercolour paper and this stamp set was one of my favourite sets from the 2019/2020 catalogue and of course we needed to add some Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the water.

Our third set of projects from the Pinkies Weekend were designed by Stacey Marsh. Stacey designed two lovely projects for us to make, but I had a problem. Stacey used the Trimming the Town Suite from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue and as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I just didn’t like it at all. I really, really wanted to make the projects, so I decided to put my own spin on them. To see Stacey’s Sampler visit her blog at http://www.staceymarsh.co.uk.

I love the fact that the Pinkies Weekend has given me the opportunity to make some new homemade decorations. Why not share some of your favourite decorations.

Until next time, happy crafting

This was my favourite set from last year’s annual catalogue and was carried over into the new catalogue. I have used the new in-colour Misty Moonlight. Love the way the lighthouse fit into the die from the Tasteful labels dies.

My final project that I am sharing from the Pinkies’ Weekend retreat is a Diorama card with removable room décor designed by Pinkies Team Leader,  Michelle Last. You can find her over at https://www.michellelast.co.uk/

I think this is such a lovely idea and very simple to make.

This month’s class in a bag is now available to order. For more information check out the class page 

Tomorrow I will be sharing my swaps from the Pootlers Team’s Annual Catalogue swap.

Until next time, happy crafting
