Tri Shutter Album

Tonight I held my monthly Scrapbook class and instead of doing some "pages" we made a "Tri Shutter" Album using  Stampin' Up!s Elegant Soiree Designer papers.






On the Cover I've used some chipboard letters for the Alphabet Soup selection, coloured them with Baja Breeze ink and then clear embossed them (yes, Amy this is for you). I used Soft Suede and Baja Breeze Card stock and Marina Mist Stripped Ribbon.

 My ladies had fun and although they were given the same papers they ALL decorated theirs differently!!

Scrapping with Stampin' Up! as promised

Sorry for the delay in posting this pictures....... I did promise to show you pictures of my scrapbook pages I made using the new Springtime Vintage Designer Papers and seeing as my event was on Saturday here they are.......

For this first layout I've used a patch work of the "Blue" shades  of papers, I've emblished it using the delious Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon along with a flower from one of Stampin' Up!s New Big Dies. The photo's are from when Heidi went out for the day with here friends.

For the second layout I've used an older photo and made it have a vintage feel using a darker background Always Artichoke and used the "Pink" shades of paper. Again I've used the New Flower die and Seam Binding ribbon to emblish the page.


And yes that is me in the photograph I when I was ten days old........

I would like to take this opportunity to THANK the ladies that attended my Mini Catalouge Launch on Saturday, I hope you enjoyed your selves I know I did (sorry I forgot to take my camera so no pictures this time).

Paper Piecing.........

Here are a couple of cards that I've made using this technique last week


Its a great way to use up those left over pieces especailly from scrapbook pages........ which sadly I can't share with you until after Saturday as I don't want to spoil it for those who are attending my Mini Catalogue Launch.....

Here I've used the Springtime vintage papers along with the Four Frames stamp set on one and the Decorative label punch

I do hope that if your in this area then your pop in and have a browse at the samples, enter the prize draw and more........

Sew Lovely

I must admit that this wasn't one of the stamp sets that took my fancy in the Mini,  but having  taken it out of the packet and mounting it I found my self liking it more and more......... and the matching Designer Papers are just delicous!!!


I must admit that I got the idea of the little dresses from one of my downlines, its made using the Scallop Circle Punch....

The colours I choose matched with the Designer Papers - Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango. Just got to write labels for these and bag them up for the Stampin' Up! event tomorrow.

Build a Blossom

I wanted to share these cards with you that I made using the NEW Build a Blossom Stamp set and matching punch the other day from the Mini Catalogue, but didn't think it would be fair on the ladies who attend my card classes.....so seeing as they had their class this evening I can share them with you now.

This is the first time that I have used these two In Colours Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade, I was pleasantly suprised as to how nice they were to work with.

Did you notice that I used  one of Stampin' Up!'s New Embossing folders... I can't wait to play with the others toooooooooo

One for the Men


I made this card for my Dad who's birthday it is today "Happy Birthday Dad" (so couldn't post it yesterday). This brings back memories for me as he used to have a red motorbike and would often take me out for a spin on it.

This card is made using the Motorcycle stamp in the new Mini catalogue which can be found on page 30 and as you can see I've cased the card but used different colours and added some Crystal Effects to make the body of the bike shinny.

Sorry I lost my Mojo for about a week, think the overload of ALL the new items in the Mini had something to do with it.........so much to choose from.
