Learning something new

Hi All.

I had a little time this morning to sit down in front of my new Miss Mac and thought I should update my blog with the current catalogues etc. To my shock it has been a whole 12 months since I have been on here, which doesn't surprise me because I have not sat down and created a card for quite some time. How would you put it, I lost interest. But I think I am getting excited again. I want to start learning something new and with that I think I am going to take up Scrapbooking, I am not a scrapbooker at all but I love the concept and would love to make use of all my Stampin Up products.

So to start me off I decided to give a couple of challenges ago. My plan is to turn the layout and colours of the card into my first 12 x 12 scrap page. The 2 challenges I choose were from SUO Challenges where we had to create a Congratulations card and the second being Mojo Monday, purely because my brain couldn't cope with coming up with a layout from scratch....

All of my products I have used are from Stampin' Up!

I hope to be back here with my first ever 12 x 12 scrap page layout. If anyone has any tips for beginner scrapbookers please leave me a comment I need all the help I can get.

Have a great Sunday.

Eat Sleep Stamp Sketch #126


Wouldn't be fantastic if we could just Eat, Sleep, Stamp... I know life would be less stressful.

This week I am kicking off with a sketch challenge from Eat Sleep Stamp , when I looked at the sketch on my computer it must have missed off the right side so that is why my take on the sketch is missing the little bit but I love how it turned out. I hope you enjoy.

Jac-inks Sketch Challenge #6

Hi again.

Two posts in one day whoa... Recently I purchased the gorgeous Medallion Stamp, I have been wanting this for a while now and thought to myself that I must just have it. It's a little bit bigger in real life than what I was expecting but I LOVE IT. So I have teamed up my new favourite stamp with this weeks Jac-Inks Challenge #6 and love how it turned out. I had a few attempts with the middle bit but in the end I like how it turned out. But I'll let you be the judge.


Stamps: Medallion, Bliss (SAB)

Card Stock: Rich Razzelberry, Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories: 1 3/4" Punch, Basic Jewels, Pinking Shears

Mojo Monday Week 186

Hi I just love this weeks Mojo Monday sketch, it is so versatile. For a while now I have wanted to do a plain Black and White/Vanilla card, I tried it on this one but found that I needed another colour to break it up so I used Crumb Cake (Kraft). I am determined to only use the 2 colours, so maybe I might give the sketch another go later in the week. I hope you enjoy.


Stamps: Dreams du Jour

Card: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Love Letter DSP

Inks: Black Stazon, Crumb Cake

Accessories: Crumb Cake Grosgrain Ribbon, Half Pearl, Hemp Twine, 1" Circle Punch

jac-inks Challenge #3

I have made two cards this week for Jac-Inks fortnightly challenge, this week it was an inspiration challenge, and I am sure you will agree that it is a beautiful picture. These cards are a little different than what I usually create but I needed to have a few kids cards in my stash. I hope you like them.

Close up - Card 1

I created the sand using River Rock Refill Ink and mixed it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, I think it worked quite well and it gave me the effect that I was looking for.

Card 1
Supplies Card 1:
Stamps: Fifth Ave Floral, Well Scripted
Inks: Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Taken with Teal
Card Stock: Rose Red, Whisper White, Rose Red
Accessories: Owl Punch, Hemp Twine, River Rock Refill Ink, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
With the second card after I made it I realised that the colours didn't quite match the inspiration but I thought I would share as I love the concept of a little gift in our cards. This card comes with a bookmark. I love the little owls and the way that you can dress them up, I have dressed these little ones as hula girls, love the coconut bra :-)
