A Traditional Christmas Scrap Page


Hello and Welcome to our monthly Scrapbooking Blog Hop.


This is a fantastic group with great inspiration for scrapping using Stampin' Up! products.  


This month, the theme is a Traditionl Christmas!  


And I've used one of my total favourites this year - Christmas Classics with Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler for the total traditional theme.


This is a page with lots of gorgeous stamping and blending around the edges and then a little bit of extra die cutting for the title and extra greenery.  


I coloured the Silver adhesive paper using Stampin' Blends to continue the red and green theme.  The date was stamped using the Alphabest Stamp Set.


I hope you like my very simple page!!  Make sure you keep hopping to see lots of amazing great ideas to inspire you this Christmas!

Fond Farewell for the Mini Catalogue


Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop 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 (catty).


This week, we have a free choice of the Mini Catalogue!!


And I have loved the Merriest Trees bundle in the catalogue and actually cased these projects on page 12 many times.


I taught this card to many people when I did classes in the local libraries earlier this month.  


It's a simple card that features some stamping, die cutting, embossing and punching.  And the gorgeous Gold cards and envelopes.  


I love the way the z fold shows off all the gorgeous gold details!!

Make sure you keep hopping for lots of great ideas!

Introducing Softly Sophisticated


Hello and Welcome to another fabulous Colour INKspiration combination to challenge and inspire you.


Colour INKspiration challenges make the most of gorgeous images and amazing Stampin' Up! colours.


This week, we have a very gelato palatte!!  


I decided to test run these colours with a new Sale-a-bration bundle coming in January next year.  


It is a stamp set and coordination embossing folder called Softly Sophisticated and it is FREE with a purchase of $180 during our Sale-a-bration promotion from 4th January.  


I've used all of the colours for the flowers - this is a fun 2 step stamp where you stamp the leaves in one colour, then line up the flowers with another colour to create the complete image!!  Love it!  I'm also showing off some lovely new bakers twine and embellishements coming in January too.


Inside the card features another of the 2 step floral images.  Love how fun and pretty these are!!
