Havin' Fun!!!!!

I just LOVE these pictures that Heidi and her friend Emma took on a visit to Ikea. So much so that I scrapped them with my Swap-a-challange kit from our retreat.
I still don't know who put my kit together but I just loved the papers and emblishments, THANK YOU. The layouts just came to me by looking at the papers, surprised myself by not using sketches for a change.

Scrapbook class

Here is last weeks layout that I completed with my Scrapbook class.

As soon as I saw the new Stampin' Up! designer papers Greenhouse Gala I knew exactly which photo I was going to use, one taken at my friend Vicki's wedding to Sam in May of this year.

I have emblished my layout using the new Stitched ribbon Pear Pizzazz and retired clear buttons coloured using Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip card stock.

Wow I've just got back from this years Stampin' Up! Convention which was held at Addington Palace.

Heres a picture of Shelli and myself just before I went into Memento Mall.

I had a fantastic time, swapping ideas and learning new techniques. The speakers were really inspirational and I can't wait to put some of the ideas that I have spinning around my head into practice.

I was also really lucky to recieve on of the prizes on prize patrol. It was the Make a Monster stampset,I was umming and rrrrring over getting this set but after seeing some of the fab projects on the display boards couldn't wait to get home and order it.......well I can spend the pennies on other stash now.......LOL

We did 4 make and takes using the two stampsets that we recieved in our fabby convention bags Party Time and Just Beleive. I'll share these with you a bit later as I need to go and spend some time with my hubby and daughter especially as I want to keep in their good books.......yes I really want to go to next years convention......well it is in Paris!!!

in the park

Here is another layout that I completed at the weekend.
The papers and layout are from Total papercrafts kit and I didn't think that a boys layout would look this good using the reddy pink colours.
How wrong I was!!

Earlier this month I went with my Downline Chris over to High Wycombe for our regional training.....the journey was horrible but we made it (thankfully).
We meet up with loads of other demonstrators from the South East, had a look at some of the lovelly papers, stamp sets and even got to play with one of the new punches which is on my first order along with loads of other gorgeous items!!!

We made up this lovely Christmas card and Gift bag using one of the new Clear Mount Stamp sets " Contempo Christmas" which has the matching "Ornament Punch" that goes with it. The card stock used is Whisper White along with two of the new Colours Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso along with some lush Whisper White Organza ribbon.

I can't beleive I missed it this year, but scrapping these pages for the last class I taught brought loads of HAPPY memories flooding back....... its was the first time I meet my "Minimum" and "BIG Sis" and all those lovely crafters over on the DC forum.

This is layout is based on a design seen over on UKS, so I can't take all the credit but I just love the colours I've used. Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry and the matching Cottage Wall papers.

I do have 2 kits left so if any one is interested in purchasing them for the sum of £10.00 (inc P&P) with Full written instructions then just drop me an email at

Blog Hop.......

fingers crossed this is going to work as I'm in Ireland at my friends wedding and as some of my friends say "Granny" sitting whilst she's on her honeymoon!!!!

I hope that you enjoy this blog hop showing you different things you can get up to using some of the two step stamping sets that are on special discount from Stampin' Up! this month. You should have come on over from Kara's blog.

I decided that I'd use my newly acquired Trendy Tree set (wish now I had bought them before the promotion they're just fun to work with) and some of the lovely Sweet Pea Designer papers. I used my Stamp-a-jig to line up the tree trunks to the relevant top and used my markers to create the two tone tree tops.

The photo's are of my darling hubby Frank when we went to meet the elephants on parade in London this June, funnily enough the elephant was called "Frank" as well, can you guess what my hubby does for a job??? Yep he's a Postie..........LOL

I hope you enjoyed my little creation, but you've not finished hopping yet now you need to pop on over to Sarah's blog, but before you go be sure to come back later this month to take part in my birthday blog candy draw!!
