Crazy Crafters & Pootlers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters & Pootlers Blog Hop for December. This month we are excited to show off our "2016 Occasions / Sale-a-bration Sneak Peeks". We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me Rosalie Desmond. Be sure to click on the next button further down to continue your journey on this blog hop.
This month we have very exciting news that we have the famous Pootles - Sam Hammond Donald and her lovely team playing along with us! All the way from the UK. We are thrilled that they said yes to playing along with the Crazy Crafters this month as Sam is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks Sam and her team. x

When I saw the new Occasions catalog I fell in love immediately with the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits and knew I just had to get that bundle. So these are the products I have chosen to showcase for you today.

I decided to try and keep this card simple compared to my usual efforts, something I find a challenge but I love how it turned out. I used Mint Macaron and Blushing bride on this card and used the Perfectly Artistic designer series paper you can get free through Sale-a-bration when you order a qualifying amount to layer behind the rose. 

I hope you enjoyed viewing my card and thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget to keep hopping around and view all the other amazing projects by both teams, I know I will be.

Hi everyone!! So I haven't been very active as of late and it is because I was very busy getting married :) I spend a lot of time making everything for my wedding, from the invitations to hundreds possibly thousands of ribbon roses for my bouquets and centerpieces.

However I am back now with a new name though if you are looking for my Stampin' Up! store it is still currently under Sarah Oakes as I haven't got around to changing that yet apologizes for any inconvenience this might cause.

I thought I would just share a quick post with you all showing a few photos of the big day and I look forward to sharing some more crafty projects with you soon xx

Ready and waiting to get this show on the road
I grew up around motorbikes especially vintage ones like
these so naturally they had to make an appearance at my wedding,
shown here with me and my handsome groom
Our amazing bridal party, they made the day just perfect 
I wanted to keep the tables simple so there was more room for eating :)

Last but not least a shot off some of my crafting,
I even made the accents for the shoes :)

That's all from me today I hope to see you all back here soon.
