Busy, Busy..

Well, it's been a busy week. Was my birthday recently and I haven't even made the thank you cards yet. Tomorrow I'm off to Telford for the Stampin' Up! regional event. Around 300 other demos will be there so the place is sure to be buzzing! Downline gift ready, just to finish off my swaps now. 
In the meantime I'll post a few cards which, if you're not on facebook, you won't have seen.
These 3 are from a set of 4 from the Gold/Silver class a while back. I don't have a photo of the 4th - I gave it to a lady I met on a train from Waterloo - it was her birthday.


The next 4 are from this months Happy Watercolour class. I'd bought the stamps to make a scrapbook page of my uncle, with photos that were taken before he was killed in WW2. I hadn't even been that keen on Gumball Green. As soon as I saw these designs and zappy colours I changed my mind! I think they're lovely!

 




What do you think? Do you like them? The Happy Watercolour stamp set and Gumball Green, along with the other 2012 -2014 In Colours - Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit won't be around much longer. If you'd like to get them, visit my online store now. Link to the right of this post.
Today I'm finishing those swaps and made a neverending card for the very first time. I'll show you in another post.

NSD Draws To A Close










National Scrapbooking Day has now drawn to a close for another year but I quickly want to show you a couple of layouts.
This first is generously shared with us by Jackie...
Generously shared with us by Jackie.
A clean, contemporary styled layout of Cowes, Isle of Wight. Bearing in mind the previous layouts shared today, I think we can say that Stampin' Up! covers all styles of crafting!
Finally, my double page layout. Not quite finished, but completed enough to show you/ I wonder if you can guess where the papers for it come from???

Do you recognise the products? What if I tell you that they are the remainder of the Thankful Tablescape Kit that was in the Autumn/Winter Occasions Catalogue? When I ordered the kit I had no intention of using it for table settings. Instead I made a mini scrapbook then used the remaining birch paper to cover two sheets of 12x12 paper then mounted the photos on the table tents and napkin holders, decorating the pages with the belly bands! Different, I think, and a good use of the remaining kit. What do you think?

More NSD Fun!


Generously shared by Cathryn Perkins
Generously shared by Cathryn Perkins

A double page spread - still a bit fuzzy,sorry!
Again, generously shared by Cathryn. More inking, more depth, more fun!

Sharing NSD with You!










Have you started crafting yet???
Below is a page created by Cathryn. To add depth and an extra 'layer' she's inked through a mask (from her non SU stash). This helps to make the photos 'pop'. 


You can tell that we had such fun with those silly hats, glasses and wigs in the photo booths.

National Scrapbooking Day










Today is National Scrabooking Day - are you crafting today?
Below I'm sharing a page created by Pat.
Page, generously shared, by Pat Stubbs
Here she's used DSP from one of our popular stacks and reversed it on the circle frame. Patterned, but it doesn't overwhelm the children's photo. As always, totally co-ordinated paper and embellishments. What else would you expect from Stampin' Up! ?
Pop by later for another page, this time from Cathryn.
