My lovely son and his beautiful fiance were married last Saturday (I've added a photo at the bottom of this post). It was 7 years to the day since Nathan asked Katie on a date and 2 years to the day since he proposed and Katie said 'Yes!'. Katie is a beautiful girl anyway, but she was incredibly stunning on Saturday (I don't think I'm biased!). They are so well matched and are perfect for each other. I wanted to make them a special card to let them know how much we love them and are so proud of them.both. I knew Nathan would be wearing his kilt outfit, but I'd no clue what Katie's Wedding Dress was going to be like, but looked out my Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit and some favourite discontinued DSP I'd been saving for an extra special card

I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw the dies that the talented Karen Burniston designed exclusively for Stampin' Up!. She even has some instructional videos on how to use the dies too.
The dies are called the Card Base Pop'n Cuts (with the slits in the corners for closing the card) and the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts insert and also the Dress Up framelits.
I thought I'd finish with a picture of the gorgeous Bride and Groom

...We're on a roll here in Personified Craft world LOL! Here are a couple of some of my new Inkpad Craft Storage Units that Phil my husband has recently made (he says I need to add 'made by my wonderful, talented husband')
These units can be free-standing or fixed to the wall.
I do hope that you agree with me that they're great! What do you think of these units?
|That's the first one filled, now off to fill the next few!|
|Phil's latest creations!|

I received this card from a friend who knew I couldn't go away this weekend for training at the Craft Weekend my friends are all heading off to. I absolutely love everything about this card - all the detail, the colours and the style. She must have spent hours making this. It means such a lot when someone is thoughtful and is thinking of you when you're ill.

|Everything you need is included in this kit|
I hope you have a go with this kit. The cards are lovely. I sent one to my Mother-in-law who recently received 2nd degree burns to her back and was feeling quite low due to the intense pain. She phoned me as soon as she received it as it gave her such a boost and cheered her up.
Who do you know that would appreciate one of these cards?
Please contact me today to order this kit for yourself.
Keep Crafting,Ruth xx
