I've spent the last couple of days getting ready for the Church's Christmas fair!!  I love this time of year it brings out the BIG kid in me!!!!!!!!

Here are some of the "Santa book marks" I made using the Owl punch, to make it more fun for the kiddies I used googly eyes and a pom pom.

Scrapbook class

I held my monthly scrapbook class this evening, knowing that I was going to be exhausted from convention I planned tonights class back in October whilst I was away on my retreat.
The ladies got to play with the new Flirtatious Designer Papers as well as using the Flirtatious Fabric to make some flowers..... the back ground of the Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink card stock have been stamped in Versa Mark using the new Delicate Doilies Stampset (which unfortunately the photograph doesn't pick up).

I have had these photos lying around since they where taken back in 2009 and can't for the life of me think why or who sent them to me (But whoever or why I just loved them and thanks again because I know that I would have said that already....... and I know it wasn't Frank as he vowed way back never to buy me flowers!!!!!)

Obviously they where just waiting for the right papers to come along before being scrapped.....if you would like to order any of the items used above or would like to attend my scrapbooking classes then please email me frankiesue@ntlworld.com

Simple thank you card

Today I'm going to share with you another card that I have made using a Hostess Exlusive Stampset... and it happens to be my favourite set there is sooooooo much that you can do with it. 

Here I dusted off my Stamp-ma-Jig to do some 2 step stampin' Ive used Pool Party with Baja Breeze and used my blender pen with Old Olive for the leaves.  I put the base card through Big Shot using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing folder and emblished it with some Baja Breeze Seam binding. The sentiment is from the Curvy Verses.

To order any of the items used in this project then please email me at frankiesue@ntlworld.com

When I went to Ashford shopping with Lucy the other week we went into the sports shop and I fell in love with a pair of trainers and all I could think of was the Stampin' Up Colours that they reminded me off......  Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise!! 

I just had to have them, Heidi runs a mile when I wear them so their going to Disneyland with me....

Then when I went away with the girls on our annual Scrapbooking retreat...... I participated in a swap a kit challange..... strangley I got my own kit back.... and it was  FANTASTIC as it matched with my new trainers perfectly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I mentioned earlier in this post I'm off to Disneyland Paris for  Stampin' Up!s annual european convention, Frank and Heidi are going with me so they'll be catching up with Mickey and friends  as well as doing the rides!!!

I will be timing some posts to pop up on my blog whilst we're away.....hopefully they'll come up with out a problem.

Catch you when I get back

Christmas Craft Day...............

Sorry I haven't been around recently but I've been busy getting ready for my Christmas Craft day that was held today. I believe a fun time was had by all who attended............. I know I certainley enjoyed myself!!! 

All 14 ladies were kept really busy with 3 projects this morning followed by making 30 Christmas cards after lunch and an extra Bonus project should they have finished all those before 4pm......and yes they got there!!  Well Done Ladies.

Now I'm going to share with you one of the Projects  that we made an "Advent Calander"

Using the "Diaper Fold" we made 24 for little pockets  from the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Papers, for the chocolate Santa's to stand in. As these are on the small side the numbers were computer generated and punched out with  the 3/4" Circle punch. We then added some eyelets and Wild Wasibi Wide Striped Ribbon to hang it with. 

Amy I hope you like it, when your back from Uni later this month its ready and waiting for you to take it back with you.
