Morning/afternoon/evening guys, all depending where and when your reading this!

Today is my  Anniversary with my hubby! a whole 21 years together and 14 married! He was my holiday romance and were are as much in love now as we were then. Enough of the mushy stuff, don't want to make any of you feel queasy!

I want to share my card with you that I made for him ( sorry no peaking inside at what I wrote!)

Ok, so you may say "But that's not Stampin' Up!" Well you're sort of right! I wrote this on word and printed it off on Whisper White Cardstock .  I then die cut this with the Top Note Die, which I trimmed down the the perforated edge and cut another out of Basic Black. I mounted the printed topper onto the Basic Black Top Note giving a border. The Cherry Cobbler base card was embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, glued the topper on this and job done!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting

Simply Scrapin!

Hey there!

Today I want to share with you a scrapbook page that we made at our Team Social. I am getting into scrap booking more and more after making a book for my friends 40th. Think I need to invest in an actual scrapbook to put my pages in.

Anyway, this page was designed my my wonderful upliner, Bekka Prideaux. It uses Gumball Green cardstock as the base and papers from the Print Poetry Paper Stack ( available in the Spring Summer Catalogue). The banners have been cut using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies, which are completely stunning and fab to use.

The page is a super fast one to make, less than 20 minutes, which in my book is fab !

Thanks for looking, happy crafting.
Dont forget about my competition I have running at the moment, take a look at the News page on my blog for details.
bye for now

Cherish The Moments

This morning I've managed to make a photo album for my sister-in-laws' new baby boy.
I've used Baja Breeze cardstock, Patio Party Designer Series Paper, White Stampin Embossing Powder and a piece of retired Stripy Grosgrain Ribbon.

This is the front cover embossed using Baby Prints Stamp Set, Versamark and White Stampin Embossing Powder

This is the inside cover, here I added a baby details using Little Additions Stamp Set and Basic Grey Ink Pad

This is where all the cute baby photos will go, hopefully! I've used Clear Medium Envelopes to pop the photos in.
Rather chuffed with the result, and no inky fingers today! 
Thanks for looking guys, happy craftin
