Balloon Bash Stamp Class

I used the Balloon Bash and the Birthday Bash Speciality paper pack for this stamp class.
Nice and Bright!
The colour combination is Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry.
While I had the stamp set out, I used it for Scrapbook Club as well to do this double spread.

This is the full 12" x 12" page.

This is the divided pocket.

This week we used the Guys Greetings Stamp Set for Stamp Class to make a few Male Gift Cards and cards suitable for Father's DAY.

With a matching Gift Box.  The papers are the flashback designer series paper.

Stampin' UP! Project Life Organising....

Morning All,
I'm busy catching up with Stamp Class instructions, but thought I would just pop on and show what else I have been up to with tiding!  A few of my Bloomin' Buds have been trying to come up with ideas for some Project Life Organisation. 
I found a set of wooden trays on Amazon which matched the rest of my Craft Room boxes and this is what I have come up with.
I have used the lid and base of our Stampin' UP! Project Life Boxes.

Pretty 4" x 3" cards.

I added the accessory kits to the back in the lids of the boxes with the 6" x 4" cards.

I used the base of the boxes at the front to layer the height on the tray.

I pushed in the square where you are meant to keep a pen on a few of the boxes so that I could fit more cards in.

I kept the corner square on a couple though, for pens and scissors etc.

I had a space at the front where I have put the tubs of clips etc to use on my pages.

Another set of boxes wouldn't fit but it left me with room for a few stamp sets and in front space for clear blocks etc.

I have been printing my photo's on a Selphy Canon CP910 which has been super.
The Project Life Boxes are half price at the moment at £6.75 each so they are a bargain with 100 of the cards in each one.

Moments Like These Project Life...

I had a little tidy up of my Craft Room yesterday and I ended up covering my Bits & Bobs basket with the New Designer Series Paper Stack.  We were allowed to purchase the New Neutrals Paper Stack which will be available come 2nd June.
These are the four designs in all the paper stack available in all the different colour families.

Look even my son is wearing a New In COLOUR,
Cucumber Crush! hee hee.
He has just passed some training and my hubbie calls him Mr Fresh!
I call him Mr Cucumber Crush!
 He was not impressed, hee hee.  Annoying Parents!  That's our Job.

We were also allowed to purchase a Project Life Bundle called Moments Like These.
They have a colour combo of Black, Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron.
I have been sorting out some photo's for a Project Life Play Date and quickly put these together.
It was really quick and so lovely choosing the photo's of my boys, remembering a lovely holiday last Easter.
Robert will be home in four weeks, Hooray!  We have survived nearly the year without having him home and close by.  He is loving Uni in Swansea though and has really grown up since he's been away.

Right off to the Post Office to Post the New Catalogues.

Stampin' Up! Preorder ....

Here we go? 
My first play with the 2015 - 2017 New In Colours.
We were allowed to order a small selection of products and this stamp set is called You've Got This.
I used only one In Colour on each card combined with Black.
The embossed folder is a New One as well called Boho Chic.
These two are Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder.

This is Mint Macaron.

I added glitter to the flower on this one.
The sentiment is embossed on vellum with black embossing powder.

This is Delightful Dijon.  I used the white gel pen for the centre of the flowers.
Can you see all the lovely lace?  YES I know I would go and order the rest of the colours, What am I like? 
Which New In Colour is your Favourite?

They look so much nicer in real life.
Which one is your FAVOURITE then Sid?

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Class

Morning All,
We made these a while ago and totally forgot to upload them.
I used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.
The stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree, Woodgrain and Four You.
I used the markers to colour the actual stamps and then huff and stamp onto your very vanilla cardstock.  The 2 1/2" circle punch was used for the centre of this card and then a circle framelit for the frame.

I used a blender pen to swirl around the ink after I stamped it.  A lovely effect, very gentle colouring.

The Angled Tag Topper Punch was used for this design.

I'll off to the Post Office this afternoon to post some catalogues, so if you would like one, the BUY NOW button is on the left hand side.

Your Perfect Day Stamp Class

Morning All,

What a lovely class we had yesterday.

Sue requested a few Wedding Cards and my Wednesday ladies requested a Large Special Card, so I think I managed to cover both of these requests in this class.

We used the Your Perfect Day Stamp Set available from the Spring Mini Catalogue.  Its still available until 2nd June.

The colour combination came from the Something Borrowed paper pack, which is brilliant as it has 4 each of 3 different designs.  I mixed in Pink Pirouette and lots of silver embossing.

The Keepsake Special Card has 6 pages inside ready for full sized photo's to be added.

Would also make a perfect New Baby Keepsake - 
The colour is just right for PRINCESS Charlotte! hee hee

The rest if the class is a mixture of square and normal sized cards, kept very simple in the two colours.

The instructions are on the right hand side if you want to play along,
