Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - " Embossing "

Welcome to December's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop, the last one for 2018 - The theme chosen for this month's theme is "Embossing" which  meant we could use Embossing paste, Embossing Folders or Heat Embossing with powders. 

You may have joined me from Jenna's blog or perhaps you are starting you journey here with me, I hope that you like our creations and the they give you inspiration as you hop around the world.

 For my layout I chose to use two of the "Embossing" techniques - Heat embossing and Embossing Paste. I grabbed my shimmer embossing paste and a couple of re inkers  - and mixed them together until i got the shade I need to match my photograph and the papers that I had selected from the Garden Impressions 6x6 pack.  Then using one of the mask's from the Pattern Party set I spread this on my whisper white card stock.  

Whilst this was drying I set about inking up some of images in the Butterfly Gala stamp set once I had heat embossed the image and watercoloured  it using inks and an Aqua Painter I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch   these two item will be available as a bundle when the Spring/Summer * catalogue goes live on the 3rd January 

Cutting several Circles of various sizes  from the DSP using the Layering Circle Framelits,  and my Photograph - I just hoped it didn't slip when I run it through the bigshot as I only had the one copy printed from my daughter's wedding last year  - can't believe its a year ago!! 

I hope you like my layout using this months theme - supplies used to create this layout can be ordered via my Online store here

Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Lisa has created using this theme.

Happy Scrappin'

What amazing time Frank and I had in Orlando - 

We met Shrek 

and Donkey had Frank it fits of laughter!!

I arranged surprise for Frank - a Marvel Character meal, so he could meet his hero Captain America 

Yes we did get some funny looks but I just explained he was my "BIG" kid for the night....LOL

We also headed of to the Magic Kingdom one evening to enjoy Mickey's Christmas Parade - it was mind blowing.....

Whilst at Onstage Live I caught up with some friends I've made along the way  from around the world -  "Penguin" Pam  I met through Michelle

Debbie - who I met at Leadership in Orlando 3 years ago along with Pam  here on the right as we went around the world at Epcot - being CentreStage acheivers

Angelique  - who I met in Brussels and kindly keeps me supplies with a Dutch treat that I recalled from my childhood. And Patricia who know's my love for Lularoe

Whilst we were at Onstage the boys headed off to Nasa

And  I got to go and explore -  This was a truly amazing find and well worth the trip a MUST for any scrap bookers if they're headed to Florida -

Shhhh don't tell Frank but I will return there at some point !!

I'd like to thank my  team and customers for helping me along the way to achieve this wonderful experience -

Now I can put all these lovely memories into my scrap book album - I think  I could be doing this for a wee while.........

Happy Scrappin'

Kre8tors Blog Hop - December

Thanks for joining me again for December's Kre8tors Blog Hop. I know that you're going to find some great inspiration from the wonderfully creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators as you follow along with us.   

You may have just visited Sharon's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.

This months theme is "Christmas"  so i'd like to share with you 2 cards that I've made.

This first one uses the "Merry Christmas To All" bundle from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.  

Having cut the word "Christmas" from Cherry Cobbler card stock I then inked up half of the word with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed it with Gold Embossing powder.

Here is my second card which also has a gift panel which holds 3 tealights. 

This second card features products from "Under the Mistletoe" suite -and also doubles as a present Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and Mistletoe Season stamp set.

I hope you like the cards I've made for this Theme  - *supplies used to create this card can be ordered via my Online store here. 

Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Jacqueline has  created for this theme.

Happy Stampin'
