Garden Impressions - Global Design Project

Evening Everyone, 
I wanted to drop by & show you what I created with the gorgeous Garden Impressions designer series paper stack & this challenge over at Global Design Project was fitting: 

This paper pack is gorgeous & currently Stampin' Up! have got an awesome buy 3 get 1 free offer which includes this paper pack, here is what I created:

I paired it with the Pop of Petals stamp set & the Jars of Love for the 'hello' sentiment. To create the banner I did the following:

I used the pretty label punch to create the banner, by inserting one edge into the punch & voila! 
Rather than a doily, I decided to use the scallop circle punch & cut it in half to create the pop of blue behind the stamped flower. I couldn't resist adding a few metallic sequins. 
So, I want to let you know about the great offers happening this month, one I've already mentioned. 

The papers you can order are: Animal Expedition, Best Route, Garden Impressions, Nature's P…

Here is this month's theme:  I really wanted to use some of the new papers I received this past week, so I found some photos that were from a Mexican evening out & new I could use the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack to go with the photos. So this is what I created:  I used the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper for my backing paper, I then added some Call Me Clover card stock, Poppy Parade, Gorgeous Grape & Daffodil Delight Brights DSP & some Daffodil Delight Cardstock for the banner. Here is a close up of me getting this all ready:  With the banner I cut some scrap & using the stitched oval die I ran it through the big shot part way to create the pe…

Scrapbook Blog Hop May 2018

Morning all! It's that time for another awesome Scrapbooking blog hop! I can't wait to see all of the inspiration from all of the other demonstrators from around the world! 

This month's theme is floral's & I'm currently in love with my garden, it's still developing but I have quite a few bulbs & flowers in plant pots so love being able to move them around. The past couple of weeks in the UK the weather has been lovely so a lot of the flowers have been coming out as we had quite a cold patch!! Anyway onto the project I want to show you: 

Yes I have wheelbarrows as my planters!! :D Here is a more recent picture of them:

With the Eastern Medallions die I created flowers & hooke…

Evening all,
Hope you are well.
I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

Kylie Bertucci gives some amazing training to demonstrators world wide! I've been part of some other groups that has been started by her like 'Random Acts of Kindness' where cards go to random people within the group from all over the world. I've recently been in the amazing 'Love it Chop it' group where you learn to cut that paper you have around the house!! haha!

Do you ever go through phases of using paper? I sometimes get so excited about using stamp sets that I sometimes forget about the paper. But then I'…

Every 3rd Sunday of the month a group of us take part in showing a scrapbook page, this could be from a sketch, colour or a special theme. This month's challenge is a sketch, which is here:


I loved to be challenged, as I don't tend to do that many pages with just 1 photo, I love taking lots of pictures on my phone when out & about, but I really loved this photo of me & my boyfriend & couldn't resist making a page with it, so take a look: 

I used the lovely Brusho to make the smoky slate card-stock not look so plain & incorporated some of the colours from the papers. Using all of the brusho colours a part from the green. Even though the blue & yellow make it look like I have haha! Here is a close up: 

I really wanted to use the amazing thinlit die from the 'Celeb…
