Easter Bunnies...............

I had great fun the other weekend making these little Easter Gift treat's with my niece, I got the idea from the lovely Charlie (aka Mrs C)

I'm hoping that Amy doesn't pop on here before I see her later today other wise  she won't be surprised as she knows that Rebecca and I were crafting together recently.

Didn't she do well??? Rebecca chose to use her own felt's to colour with did't like the way mine where to pale I was using Stampin' Up!s Watercolour Wonder Crayons.

Not sure what we're going to do when I see her this Sunday, but I'm sure it will be fun!!

Happy Easter!!

WOYWW # 199

Where did the time go? The week has just sped by and I didn't get half the things done that I had planned to do this weekend. 

And here it is time for another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (for more information and to join in  the fun then pop on over to Julia's blog

Here's my desk today..............

In the background you can see the stamp sets that I am planning to use in my class to night along with some ribbon. In the middle is a sample of one of the cards we will be making which I am also making as my swaps for an upcoming  event with some lovely Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.

As you can see I'm not very tidy and am surprised that I haven't lost some of my framelits yet!!

Well I'm off to work soon so I must dash and put things away before I do, looking forward to putting my feet up this evening with a large coffee and having a snoop around some desks myself.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday and Birthday Giveaway

I mentioned on my post on Wednesday, I would be back today to share with you the layouts I had prepared to share with my ladies for the Scrapbook Club this month.

My theme was Elephants as I have over 300 on them to scrap,remember I am only showing you one side each of the layouts!!!! so I will have plenty of space for more............

This first double page layout shows a bit of paper weaving that I spied out there on several blogs.

For the next to pages I captured the sporty Elephants and added embellishments to show this such as the rosette using a stamp from the Ciao Baby set and co ordinating Scallop Circle Punches and a variety of embossing folders - Fancy Fan, Vine, Chevron, Perfect Polka Dots

This next layout is the reverse of one I showed you a little while ago I have mirrored most of the page but again used the Scallop Circle punches and Ciao Baby Stamp Set.

This last one is awaiting some extra embellishments and some journalling just like the others are works in progress until I have scrapped ALL my photographs from this event.

As some of you know its my ??? year with Stampin' Up! this month and I have mentioned  on my news letter and facebook pages that I am going to give some blog prizes out this month so here is the first one.

My questions is How long have I been a Stampin' Up! Demostrator??  

Please leave your answer in the comment box by next Sunday evening when I will then draw a winner. The prize for this draw is a pack of Divided Page Protectors for you to play with. Good luck ladies and gentleman.

Bloomin' Marvelous..............

Here's a card that  my ladies made at my last  card class using the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp set, Vine Embossing Folder , Sycamore Street DSP and Ribbon Collection.

We created the frame using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.........they loved that they didn't have to line it up as usual. 

Here's what I call an "arty farty" view of the frame.

I'm just loving these sale a bration items and will be sad to see them go on Friday.

If you wish to place an order please ensure that you email or telephone me by 9.30pm tomorrow (Friday) so that I have enough time to put your order in the system. My email is and mobile is 07914 360625

WOYWW #198

Its that time of the week again WOYWW, sadly I missed joining in the fun last week as I had PC problems but thankfully that's all sorted now. 

This was my desk at silly o'clock this morning............I didn't realize the time as I was having so much fun playing!!!! especially as hubby and daughters were all out.

There are a variety of bits and bobs around - to the left my PC (well I need to listen to some music whilst I work), in the center my daubers and sponges for the scrapbook layout that I am just putting together and on the right hands side some stamps that I've used waiting to be cleaned.

I lost track of time as I had been playing again with the new 12x12 divided page protectors great for when you have loads of piccies to scrap did you spy the 3 large packets on the table.........all of the Elephants that were on Parade around London a couple of years back ( I think I have 300 photo's in all to scrap - I must be mad).

Well I'm off to have a snoop around some work desks but before you go please leave a comment and that way I'll be sure to pass by yours too.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Well I don't know about you but I have been thoroughly spoilt  today........but one thing that really made my day was the card that I received from Lucy!!

Lucy all ways poo poo's my crafting but whilst I was sleeping last night she raided my stash and created this for me..........

She even decorated the back

After she had given it to me she said that now she apprecicates the effort and work that goes into a hand made card and understands my work more.

next Sunday Scrapbookin' On Sunday will be back as usual

I hope you all have a Happy Mother's Day whatever your up to.

WOYWW # 196

I was up bright an early this morning as you can see from the bits and bobs on my table...........

As usual I have a class tonight and have left the prepping until the last minute. As you can see from the photo we will be making a card using the Love & Sympathy stamp set. I would show you the card but then it wouldn't be a surprise for the Ladies.

One of things that I  do need to get is more organised and have this done a couple of days before hand especially as I'm working full time at the moment and can't afford to have too many late nights. 

Must dash as I need to clear this lot up before he who must be obeyed comes home and I have to leave very soon for work.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment so I know you've been by.

Hope you have a great day what ever you get up.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Here is the double page layout that we did at Scrapbook club last month.

Again here you can see how we used the banner strips on the right hand page.....the 1 3/4 inch circle punch was great for punching the circles on the designer paper.

Can you see that we were also very crafty by the way we used the designer paper at an angle on the left hand page.

Should you wish to join the Scrapbook club in person or my mail please email for further details.

Make a Cake...........

And that's exactly what I did for Melaine's 40th Birthday............

When I played with my Stamp-ma-jig on Wednesday evening using both Make a Cake and Memorable Moments stamp sets. 

The papers are the left overs that I had from my scrapbook kit last month...Tri Shutter cards are great for using scraps up. Here is an closer look at the front panel which I made with the Labels framelits and Butterfly punches.

But I didn't just make her a card I also baked her a "Giggle Cake"..........Amy was not impressed that I didn't make her one toooooo.

If you would like a demonstration of how to use a Stamp-ma-jig and what tricks you can do with it why not book a party/workshop or come along to one of my classes*. 

Right must dash as I have loads to do today....

Happy Stampin' 

*  All classes are  available to come to you at a mutually convenient time if you have a group of 5 or more people
