{Scrapbooking with Succulents}

Ok so don't die of shock, but I've made a scrapbook page! I think the last time I made one was over a year ago. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to work on this kind of scale.  It can be scarey if you are a cad make and your canvas is usually no bigger than 6x6.

Last weekend I organised a craft day and one of the ladies told me she would love to have a go at 12x12 scrapbook pages. That chat reminded me how much I used to enjoy it.  Then as I thought about some of the stamp sets, dies and punches that I have I realised that they would translate so well to the type of scrapbooking I enjoy.

So, this girl is inspired! Anyone else out there like using Stampin' Up! supplies for scrapbooking?






Here is a video tutorial

{Roses and polkas}

One of my favourite combinations on anything, whether it be clothing, home ware or soft furnishings is roses and dots.  It is such a classic and well tried combination of pattern.

For this card I used the beautiful 3 step rose from Picture Perfect, the detailed leaf from kinda Eclectic and the small dots from Timeless Textures.  Then to finish it off with those two little butterflies I used Grateful Bunch.  At this time of year I am fortunate enough to see butterflies in pairs as they seem to dance around each other in mid air.

New catalogue...new colours!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...
No... it's not Christmas, well it may as well be for me as I love colour and this is the time of year I get to introduce to you and play with 5 new colours to the Stampin' Up! palette.
Every year they introduce 5, and they are with us for 2 years, so although I'm mourning the loss of Mint Macaron, these 5 new beauties are keeping me VERY happy.

If you would like to look at the new catalogue that will be going live on June 1st, please contact me and I'll send one out to you asap!

So without further ado, they are
...Fresh Fig...
...Berry Burst...
...Powder Pink...
...Lemon Lime Twist...
...Tranquil Tide...


To accompany the new inks, pens and cardstock there is a beautiful in colour paper stack.  Here is a card using all 5 of the colours.

Spring has Sprung!

Well, it sprung then sprung back again! brrrr it's cold!

Hey ho! Must keep looking forward to summer.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I have the privilege of seeing and playing with some of the new products that will be coming on the 1st June.

However before I start teasing you with sneak peeks there are lots of goodbyes to be said as stamps and other items have made it to the retirement list which can be found here, and... there have been more items added to the clearance rack today, so do have a look there for some reduced price items.

Don't forget to use current hostess code! NB36BZES

Here is a sneak peek of a card we'll be making at the classes in May.  As there are some bundles of products that currently have 10% off that won't be bundles in June, I purchased this lovely set.  A Filigree stamp is so useful to have in your collection, it can create great backgrounds or make a statement on it's own.




As you know I'm a sucker for florals and I've seen some great techniques with great results using this set.  So I'm having a good play with it to find out what I can share with you.


My next classes in Welshpool are going to be on the 8th and 9th of May at the Royal Oak Hotel, 10.00am, please bring your own tombow glue, refreshments are available for you to purchase.
Please contact me to book a place.

{A few more hours to go...}

So, if you've been a Stampin' Up customer formore than a year, you will know that every year there is a new catalogue.  We sadly say goodbye to some stamp sets, tools and accessories to make way for some lovely new ones.

This evening I will learn what is going on the retirement list and be able to share that with you.

In the mean time, I have been experimenting with using YouTube live and Periscope and have some new videos to share with you.

Yesterday was Palm Sunday, so in remembrance of that I made these bookmarks.  You can watch the video on Periscope here.


On Saturday I had a stall at a local residential home for elderly people.  It was their spring fair and Easter Egg hunt.  I took some cards and other paper craft items I have made.  Although I came back with all my cards there were a few ladies interested in my classes.  I had a lovely time stamping in some very bright sunshine and chatting to some of the people there.

Using up those papers!

I'm as guilty as any other paper crafter for hoarding those beautiful papers and not getting round to using them... but no more!

I decided to get chopping and punching and sticking, and this is what I came up with.

The papers are from the Playful Palette DSP stack, which comes in a 6x6 format, perfect for card making, and for square cards which I am addicted to making at the moment!


I also filmed some of the process of YouTube live.
Do follow me on there if you would like to join the live fun!
