Scrapbookin' On Sunday

A little later posting than usual today but I have spent the morning resting and relaxing with my hubby who I haven't seen for a few day's.......I even cooked him breakfast!!

I'm going to share with you one of layouts from this month's Scrapbook club kit featuring the Flower Pot DSP.

Here I have used a flower mask  (as it went well with the flowers in the papers) from my collection with Lost Lagoon ink.

Frank was really pleased to see "Our Willie" when we went up to Glasgow back in June. 

Next week I'll be back with another layout that we did. remember if you aren't able to attend in person the kits are available by post, next month we will be using the Flashback DSP.

I've been really busy this past month with all my birthday celebrations and havent managed to squeeze a woyww in,  but this week sees me taking some time out and chilling at my brothers.

Here you can see that I brought along  some  images and my promarker pens to play with. I haven't played with my promarkers for a while and I'm finding it very relaxing. I bought along a stash of dsp so that I coloured my images to co ordinate with rathèr than clash which is my usual error (colouring and not thinking what finished image will go with). Looks like I'll have a few cards to make up when I go back home at the weekend. 

If your not what WOYWW is all about then pop on over to Julia's blog and find out all the info.  Me I'm going to chill some more today and whilst I do that I'll be sure to be nosing around a few desks as well.

Masculine Monday

For this week's Masculine Monday's post I'm going to share with you one of the make and takes that the ladies did at my event this weekend.

I host a monthly crop and as it's my  big birthday, I arranged for them to play some party games and some make and takes using a selection of products in the current catalogue and of course a sneak peak of somethings from the upcoming Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

This card uses the longest remaining stamp set in the annual catalogue - Lovely as a Tree (I've been a demonstrator for 5 years and its been in there since then) and a sentiment from the Something to Say stamp set.

Here's a picture of the ladies busy crafting and a group one of us having fun!!

Until next time...

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

As I mentioned last week I was away at a crafting was a great laugh, 20 plus ladies in a dorm and on Saturday I  did an all nighter!!  

In total I managed to complete 10 layouts some where couple where double pages and project life. We had some fun challenges as well and at the end of the weekend we were all presented with a certificate and medal

This is one of the pages that I that I did whilst at the retreat, I decided that I would try and use up some of my non  SU stash,  I can't believe how much I have still.

I also tried to make sure that on each page that I completed I either put a title or at least did some journaling. 

I just love this photo of Lucy kissing the fish she caught. right i'm off to pack the kits for next week's class, there is still one available if your interested we're using the flower pot dsp.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Sorry readers, there are no scrapbook pages to post on my blog today as I have been rather busy trying to organize my crafting stash..........and its taking much longer than I had anticipated !!

However I can give you a sneak peak of the papers that will be in this month's club kit, which are called Flower Pot

When I first saw these papers I just knew I had to use them and had lots of different layouts running around my head.......I have managed to make 5 different layouts using just half a pack DSP.

If you would like to join us or have future kits via post then please drop me an email or give me a call/text on 07914 360625.

Until next week

Big Shot and Bundle offers for August

Stampin' Up! have just announced an amazing offer with the Big Shot and some Bundle Offers to go with it.........which is great if you already own a Big Shot!     

I just love my Big Shot as it saves me having to cut all the fiddle bits out by hand........and is great for adding texture to both card stock and paper. 

If you order the Big Shot through me in August you get to choose one of the five bundles listed below for FREE!! these are brilliant and are worth up to £55 each........

If you can't decide on which one you really want you can add any other to your order and save 15% on the catalogue price, which is great if you already own a Big Shot.

I'm also loving the fact that one of these bundles features an upcoming stamp set from the Autumn /Winter catalogue..........its one of my favorites.

Festive Friday's

As promised last Friday here is another Festive card (still not used the C word yet....LOL) using the Joyful Christmas stamp set. 

As you can see from the photograph I have stamped the main image with Versa mark in and embossed this with clear embossing powder on to a Very Vanilla piece of card stock. Then using my Cherry Cobbler ink I sponged around the edges and image making it darker over the Poinsettia.

I didn't think the colours  Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler would go together very well but I was pleasantly surprised.

Next week pop back to see another festive creation using products found in the Annual Catalogue and not on the Seasonal Carry over list which remember is only available to order from until 27th August.

Happy Stampin'
