Good morning, another beautiful sunny day here in the U.K. and I'm off for afternoon tea later for my friend's birthday, it's a perfect day for it.
It's Day 2 of Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 and today they are focusing on sequins, I knew from yesterday's post it was going to be sequins. I think I must of been dreaming about sequins last night and what I could do with them. When I woke up this morning, I knew exactly what I was going to make, does anybody else dream about crafting or is it just me????
I'd recently bought some sequins from Poundland, as I'd been seeing quite a few people using them on their projects.. They were large bags, crammed full of all sizes, shapes and different shades of one colour. I bought the pink and blue but I might get the other colours next time I go.
It's my niece's birthday tomorrow, she will be 10, so the first one I made was with the pink sequins, this is another quick and easy card to make. I can spend hours on one card but today's two cards took me less than an hour as did my card, yesterday.
I die-cut two pieces of vellum using the Spellbinders Scalloped Square and stitched three sides together, I filled the little vellum bags with sequins and stitched the last edge. I glued the shaker bag onto some white card, it seemed to get lost on the patterned paper. I used Helmar 450 glue as it dries perfectly clear so you can't see it through the vellum.
I stitched around the patterned paper and adhered to the front of my card, then centred my bag of sequins, finally a punched out glitter butterfly and a sentiment. I love this stamp set from Inspired by Stamping, as it as lots of different words so you can make up your own sentiments.

One last thing to share with you, my sister had her baby boy on Saturday. He was 12 days late but once he decided it was time to get out, he'd arrived within one and half hours, weighing 9lb 8oz.
He was just a few hours old here, they have named him Adam.
I was away when he was born so this was my first cuddle, he is 36 hours old in this photo, he's a right little bruiser and so adorable. He was been passed around like a parcel but it really didn't seem to bother him, he just kept opening one eye to see who'd got him, then fell asleep again, bless. Needless to say, I'm a very proud Aunty!!!!!
Thanks for taking the time to look, back soon.
