Our theme this month was designed by Sara.

I've used some poetic licence with this theme, and incorporated the Holiday theme in my journaling panel for some glorious photos of a recent time when our family was together.

Our older children have all moved away to the big city to go to University, and so we celebrate every opportunity we can all be together - which is just like when we're on holidays together!!  

My page features a bunch of NEW goodies available in our Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration offerings from 3rd January.  

I've featured the gorgeous Parisian Beauty bundle, along with the Small Bloom punch from Sale-a-bration.  This was combined with the great Merry Christmas dies for the word 'Holidays'.

Here's something exciting - the beautiful flower from Forever Blossoms from the Mini Catalogue, was punched using the Small Bloom Sale-a-bration punch.  It's not an exact fit, but it's pretty close!!  How awesome is that!!

The colours I've used are:  Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink and the Champagne Foil.  And those gorgeous Champagne Rhinestone Jewels are another gorgeous new product coming in our Mini Catalogue.  

 This is such a fun Scrapbooking theme - you'll see some totally amazing projects as you hop through the whole team!!

Up next is the amazing Amanda.

Our last for 2019 CASE ANYTHING!! CTC#259

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.

For our LAST blog hop for 2019, we can CASE anything from our Holiday Catalogue - anything goes!!  

I've only gone as far as the front cover to CASE the wreath card on the 2nd left on the top row.  However...... my project went on a little journey of its own!!!  

I've used the central panel, and the circle layering with the wreath as my feature - inspired by the CASED project.  

This is actually a gift wrap for a gift for a dear Aunty.  I have used the retired Alphabet Letters framelits, which I just keep on using!!   All the frames under the big R are from our new Mini Catalogue starting on 3rd January - called Painted Labels.

The lovely paper is the gorgeous Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  

I wish you a very Happy and Holy and Safe Christmas Season and New Year, and we look forward to seeing you back here again when we begin our challenges on 5th January 2020!!

Up next for our last hop this year is the lovely Rebecca and her gorgeous wreath card!!  

We'd love you to join in the fun with us too! Simply add your project to the lineup on our facebook challenge page!!

Our last hop for 2019 Colour INKspiration #69

Hello and Welcome to our Blog Hop and Challenge with Colour INKspiration.

Our Challenges are about using specific colours from some great Pinterest photos and thi is our last Colour INKspiration Blog Hop for 2019!! Check out these colours!!!

Image may contain: flower
Don't you love the picture this time?  I've used the colours as my basis for some Christmas gifts for work colleagues.  

Using one of our NEW Stamp Sets coming in the Mini Catalogue - Forever Blossoms - I've created my own version of Designer Series Paper for my Mini Easel Calendar Cards.  These are just to right size to squeeze onto a busy desk!!

The base of the card is 10cm by 21cm and I have scored at 9cm and 15cm to create the folds to make the easel.  I've used some Grapefruit Grove to create a backing for the mini calendars and for the lovely words from the stamp set.  I've chopped off the remaining words from this greeting so it suits the calendar theme (and so it would fit on the card!!!).

The flowers were smooshed a little using the clear Wink of Stella pen - so the background is very shimmery and pretty!!  This is actually quite an easy project and very simple, but the colours really helped it to be very special!!  

Up next on our hop this time is the lovely and amazing Nikki. and her stunning dome card.  Make sure you hop all the way around the team - everyone is so clever and inspirational!  

This is our last challenge for 2019, so why not join in the fun with us?  Use these colours, and then add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page!!

One of my Favourites - Wrapped in Plaid CTC#258

Hello and welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY!!

To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything, and our challenge is all about CASEING the amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (Catty).

No photo description available.

This week we are CASEING from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite - pages 12 - 17 and I have been inspired by the little tag in the middle,  right at the very top.  I love the tree, the bell detail and the circle to make the tree pop!!

I've changed up the circle a little by using the Starburst punch, and added another circle behind for the tag that says 'To' and 'From'.  I've created a whole bunch of these using the gorgeous pillow boxes ready to give to friends at the various Christmas events we go to!

While I was creating some quick little gift packaging to hold chocolates, I was also inspired by the lovely card on the top right on page 15.  I've used the layout to create an embellished top for the wildly glorious gold pizza boxes - again another great gift for the incidental events this season!!  

I've used the lovely Christmas Gleaming stamp set for the holly leaves combined with that fabulous greeting from Perfectly Plaid.  There are a few gold foil leaves under the holly instead of the ribbon at the top that is on the original.  

I wonder what will inspire you from the Wrapped in Plaid chapter from our Holiday Catalogue?  Keep hopping around the whole team and see lots more amazing ideas stimulated by the projects featured in this chapter!!

Up next is the awesome Peta and her very clever sponged and inlaid card!  

We would really love it if you joined in the fun with us too and added your project to the lineup each week!!  Just head to our facebook page and add your photo right there!!
