I'm so glad that it's a long weekend! We've got 2 of Jeremy's brothers here - Martin and Alex - along with one of his old school friends. All 4 boys have had a nice time so far, spending all day riding their mountain bikes down some of the Illawarra escarpment.
Last night i did a blind scrap challenge with Scrapbooking From Scratch - here's the result:
I just love this page! This photo was taken last November during a family photo shoot by Janine Kaye. The papers and chipboard are from Basic Grey's "Urban Prairie" Range, and the alphas are new Thickers "Rockabye" foam alpha - i just love this font, and i'm getting some glitter ones later this week, so that will be fabo!!
Today i did a Stampin' Up workshop at a customers house where i spend a lovely afternoon with some lovely ladies. Here are a couple of the cards/projects i taught:
The card above was made using a couple of Level 1 hostess sets - the stamp set, and the 6"x6" patterned paper. Colours used were Regal Rose and Handsome Hunter, with the 2 step stamping technique (using the "Thing a ma jig").
The card below is using 2 of the new 'in colours' - Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze, along with the stamp sets "Embrace Life" and "Polka Dots" - i love using the polka dots background stamp, it's one of my favourites!! The embrace life set is new, and it's such a lovely set to use - especially with the watercolouring technique.
The cute little gift box above was made using one of the many patterns available to Stampin' Up demonstrators online - another great reason to join the Stampin' Up team!! I've used the "Priceless" stamp set in silver and Riding Hood Red on Pink Pirouette cardstock. The cute little tag is made using one of the metal edge tags packs.
The card below was made using the amazing new "Sweet Sticky Cuts" with Chunky Glitter. They come with 2 12"x12" sheets of double sided, die-cut shapes, like the lovely flower below. It's extra sticky so that glitter holds on really well - just amazing and so fun to use!!
