QVC.. and a re-discovered kit!

Well hellooooo...
So...Yesterday was Craft day on QVC, so I settled down with my NVQ folder by my side (to stop my hands reaching for the phone).
I had already given myself a good talking to about the piles of unused craft stash that I already had...In a moment of weakness I actually went downstairs and got a large scrapbooking kit that I bought last year. I had made a few cards with it when I first got it but it has remained mostly untouched since. I started to go through it and before I knew it...I had made seven cards, one example being shown.

It is a Brenda Pinnick kit in a beautiful box that came with a scrapbook album and a vast range of chipboard flowers, frames stickers, ribbons and papers.

I added some new glitter brads but apart from base card and glue everything was from the kit! I will show you the rest of the cards in the next few posts.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges;

1.Cupcake Craft Challenge....'Friends'
2.Raise the Bar....'No Stamping'
3.My Time to craft....'In the Frame'

So some old stash re-discovered, I remained very good...even with that gorgeous smoothie Tim Holz begging me to buy. My only weakness ended up being The Patchwork Pals kit with the Train driver in it.... and I did want the white paper flowers but they sold out before I could get to the phone...
So What did you buy? Let me know....come visit me soon ♥


  1. Well done on using the old stash,Sally...and it's definately gorgeous old stash....lovely cards.You could do some scrapbooking with it as well!!
    Fraid I was completely seduced by Tim....and bought the TSV kit...can't wait....just loved all his wonderful samples.

  2. Hi sally, glad you could resist temptation - I have the Brenda Pinnick kit too from ages ago, its one of those you keep dipping in and out of!
