Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

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! Well I was inspired to cut some paper in preparation for the 'Onstage event' that Stampin' Up! run for demonstrators & so this is what I created:



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'm also a scrapbooker & so the thought of cutting 12x12 does scare me sometimes as I think about the pictures I could maybe put on the page. Sometimes you've just got to get over that hurdle & do it!! Here is a close up:

I love layering the 2" circle punch with the starburst punch, I used so saffron paired with pool party & inked the sentiment with dapper denim. I then added a little bit of very vanilla trim which gives this swap some texture, here is the other colour combo: 


I was inspired to take part in this week's Just Add Ink challenge: 
I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen here & don't forget to check out the others involved in this amazing hop in the below list. For some people this is the first blog hop they are part of so don't forget to leave them a comment so they feel the love :D

See you soon,

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: 

Anyway, back to the actual scrapbook page, I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set & the Eastern Medallions dies, I stamped the Whisper White 12x12 paper with Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie ink & cardstock. Here is a step by step guide on how I created this:

With the Eastern Medallions die I created flowers & hooke…

I had to go & look through some of my pages already as my parents are currently up so had a lovely day at a flower show yesterday so will show you those photos in a future scrapbook hop. I hope you enjoy this scrapbook page that is from our holiday to the Lake District almost 2 years ago! It was a glorious day after finding out that Brexit had happened here in the UK. Anyway enough of my waffling here is what I created: 

I use the 'Remarkable You' stamp set to create the big leaves & then used my blender pen to shade in, I've also used 'Jars of Love' for some more foliage & the 'Playful Backgrounds' in Bermuda Bay I think!! On Soft …

Hi all,

Thanks for joining me & fellow RAK members from around the world. I haven't blogged for this hop in a while & I've not even managed to send any RAK's out for the month of July either!!
