Scrapbooking Blog Hop - September 2018

Hey guys! Hope you are well, it’s been a while since I’ve participated in this hop. I hope you've enjoyed the other's blogs whilst I was away, I really enjoyed seeing them over the past 2 months. So, let's get to it, if you've come from Jerim's 'Hello' wasn't her page inspirational, but if you've started here then thank's for popping by. There is about 10 of us taking part in this hop, once you've finished looking at my blog post you can then see what other people in the hop have done by clicking the links at the end of the post.

This month's theme is 'FIRST', I really had a bit of a mental block originally, but then when I was looking at my photos during my scrapbooking workshop I found pictures from a few months ago of a walk that we haven't been on before! So voila 'my first.' I love exploring things that are on my doorstep, I follow quite a few local photographers on Instagram & one posted photos of Bluebell's & found out it was only over the bridge from where I live. So Spring Bank Holiday in the UK which is the 1st weekend in May, we decided to go & explore this woods. So here is what I created:

The bluebell's are absolutely stunning in the wild, the smell to me is the first sign of spring - is there any smells that remind you of the seasons? Here's a close up of some of those bluebell's: 

I used the 'Daisy Delight' stamp set to imitate the bluebell's across the middle of the page. I used 'Shaded Spruce' ink for the stems with some stamping off too. For the bulbs I used 'Gorgeous Grove' & 'Blackberry Bliss' ink. Here is a close up of the title for the page:

I stamped the words using the 'Pick a Pennant' stamp set using 'Shaded Spruce' ink, for the '1st time visiting' title I stamped on some scrap 'Whisper White' paper & punched it out with the 'Tailored' punch I then snipped the edges slight to make it more of a squashed hexagon & added it to the 'Nature's Poem' designer series paper. Another close of the bluebell's: 

If you are ever in Bristol, UK at Spring time then I would recommend taking a stroll around 'Prior's Woods.'

Thanks for joining me & don't forget to see what everyone else has created. 

Happy Stampin',

Here is what the finished page looks like, I used the co-ordinating stamp set to create the flowers & the bottom of the page, mounted the pictures/journaling in Rose Red & Perfect Plum. A little …

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!

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'…

I then picked out one of the lovely black designer series paper from the Petal Passion suite & then I drew a blank slightly. I was rummaging through all my photos & believe me I have tons - even with running & going to a monthly scrapbooking class!! 
I had left my scrapbooking album at home so couldn't remember what I had already scrapped so that really fr…
