Happy Birthday Jeannette

Good Morning

Yesterday was my lovely downline Jeannette's birthday. Jeannette is now my longest serving downline and I got to see her a couple of weeks ago at training and we sang Happy Birthday to her then but of course a card has to be sent too!!

Jeannette loves her Neutrals and I made these 2 cards for my Stamp a Stack with her birthday in mind. I CASED these cards from my friend Monica and Bekka's training day!!

What is a Stamp a Stack you ask? Well I have been running these for 3 months now and they have been going really well. We make 12 cards in one evening (a 3 hour session). 6 designs, 2 of each design. Its quite fast paced but I plan it that a couple of the cards are simpler cards for the ladies to "get their breath back"!!!!!

This card used lots of my favourite products from the new catalogue. Mocha Morning Papers, Everything Eleanor stamp set and For my Family stamp set!! I was so happy we got this set so we can now add family members details onto our cards.

The colour combo here is Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla

Hope you like my cards, I will post the rest of the Stamp A Stack cards over the next few days

One Sheet Wonder with Circle Circus

Hello there and Happy Wednesday!!

This is a scheduled post from me as I shall hopefully be having a well deserved lie in this morning!!

Last night I had my Tuesday Club and we welcomed 2 new ladies to class! Thanks Karen and Rachel. I was really struggling to come up with something different this time and I had a bit of a "moment" where nothing I did was right!! Then my lovely friend suggested a One Sheet Wonder (I had thought about this too) and I was all set!!

We stamped a sheet of A4 Whisper White with the Circle Circus Stamp set using only the new In Colors. I know that like me, the ladies now love this stamp set and they didn't even like it before!!! I then left them to come up with their own designs. They had 5 card blanks each, some ribbon and some spare card for punching.

Here are my cards, I love the fresh zingy colours!

We only used 3 punches, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval and the Scalloped Border punch.

The sentiments are from Sincere Salutations.

I hope you like these cards, I must say I really enjoyed making them and I will do another one at some point!

Right, back tomorrow

Christmas Scrapbooking

Good morning. Sorry I have been absent for 2 whole days - I decided to have a blogging break as I had such a busy weekend with Family things, workshops, scrapbook club, dance lessons and we welcomed a new member of our family yesterday!! A lovely little female Hamster called Frankie!! I am no longer the only female in the house!!!

On Saturday I had my scrapbook club and we did 2 layouts, I give the ladies a peek at the layouts in advance and also tell them the kit contents so that they can plan which photos they will bring. This month we did Christmas with the new Holly Berry Bouquet papers and the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set.

This is my first page, the photos are from 2004 when we went on the Santa Train with my Dad. It was the nicest one we went on over the years. Ross was 5 and Evan was 2!!!!

We used the gorgeous Crochet Trim (Victoria) and also the popular Antique Brads which were included in the kits
I also used the new Two Tags die which you can see I have used for journalling here, the other tage makes a perfect pocket for your pages which you can add hidden journalling in.

I must say I love this patchwork effect on the 2nd page. I inked the edges and added some fake stitching which I think looks effective!

The letters were the new Big Shot dies, Simple Letters, they are gorgeous.

I managed to take a couple of photos of my ladies layouts before I got distracted and started chatting again!!. The first one is Yvonne's - Yvonne is a new member of our team who I am delighted has joined up, she is a bundle of fun!

The next one is June's, she has scrapbooked her photos of her sons who are now much older than this, in fact the oldest gets married this month!!

The next 2 are Ginnette's, who also became a member of our team this month - about time really!!!!! She is so supportive, comes to every class I do and I am sure she will be a huge asset to Stampin Up!

Hope you like them and I will be back tomorrow with 2 Holly Berry Bouquet cards
