Some 6×6 LO’s and a little procrastination!!

IMG_0006.JPG

This is the first of three 6×6 double layouts that I completed for another SU! Demonstratorin payment for some information shared. I really wanted to make the little envelopes from the 5-in-1 Template that SU! sell. They are just too cute & i’ll be doing them again. I also really wanted to use the Spring Flowers Punch & papers. The quality of the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Double-Sided paper is divine. I have been scrapbooking for a few years now & I think this paper matches in quality the better known brands. And as a bonus it beats them in price!! Only $16.95 for 12 sheets (2 of each 6 designs) that’s a fantastic $1.40 per sheet!! Very good value! And as an even bigger bonus this set has a stamp set AND a punch to go!! Pretty cool huh? I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! have everything co-ordinating. Gorgeous (well it suits people like me…i’ll say no more!! LOL). I will upload some other pictures of it in the gallery.

This next layout is using the same papers & punch but co-ordinating the flowers from the Simply Said stamp set. They have the same dotty look. I really liked this page (if I do say so myself!) Colours are Very Vanilla & So saffron.

The last of the three isn’t uploading properly tonight so i’ll have to have a look and get back to you on that one! I’ve also got the most darling card my 5yo daughter made me to share as well. Brought a tear to my eyes! Some days you want to choke them and others they do the sweetest things! Motherhood does have its little rewards!

Anyway, enough procrastinating from me for one night. Back to doing some paperwork (yech!). Until next time though, have a good one!!

Sleigh Full of Toys

Sleigh Full of Toys

This card was created using the Sleigh Full of Toys Stamp set. I love the image of the sleigh groaning with the weight of the toys and the toys stacked so precariously thatthey might tumble down at any moment! I am still trying to work my way around this site & how to upload pictures etc etc. So please bear with me as I find my feet!I started with something completely different in mind with this card but it took on a life of its own. I am happy with the end result though. I do like the simplicity of it!!

The details on the card above are:

Stamps: Sleigh Full of Toys

Ink: Stazon, Real Red

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Always Artichoke

Other: Real Red Brads, Aqua Painter & Watercolour Crayons. 1 3/8″ Square Punch to punch out centre of Real Red Cardstock.

Hope you like my new site!
