This is one of the awesome kits available in our new Occasions Catalogue. EVERYTHING you need comes in the kit - the ONLY extra thing I have added is the photos, and the adhesive!!
There are doilies, die cut shapes and patterns,
and paper clips.
It also comes with the rings, and pages with the holes in to put it together!!

This page features the alphabet stencil from our Build a Banner Kit available in the Holiday Catalogue which finishes THIS WEEK!!! I sponged the work 'chef' with Pacific Point using the alphabet stencil and then used a Smoky Slate Marker pen to outline the letters for better impact. Looks Great !!
Other stamps used on this page are the Postcard, Off the Grid, and Morning Post Alphabet.
The colours are Pacific Point and Smoky Slate. The title panel was run through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

Mostly I'm a card maker because I love to give a little gift of myself to others, and I think handmade cards do this so perfectly..... and they can be as simple or creative as I like AND I can make them with the recipient in mind - I love to make cards that just suit YOU!!
BUT, I have so loved doing lots of Scrapbooking before Christmas, and so I continue - with lots of photos and ideas!! THIS page is a copy from our Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Bimonthly Ideas Magazine - and I really like its simplicity!!

This is a fun new stamp set from our upcoming Occasions Catalogue, and I've made these couple of little cards, BUT I'm REALLY looking forward to using this stamp set and coordinating framelits on a Scrapbooking page - wouldn't that be fun!!! It just brings a smile to my face!!

This is a sneak peek of one of the fun new stamps we have in our Sale-a-bration catalogue that starts next week! Yipee!!
When I'm stumped for stamping ideas, I always reach for my catalogues to copy one of the examples illustrated - that way I get to create AND make something lovely easily without all the thinking planning and general angst over whether it looks good!!! This is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from our new Sale-a-bration catalogue - be sure to let me know so I can send you one!!!

Our favourite camping spot - a rainforest - hence the explosion of rich greens - Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Garden Green, Pistachio Pudding, Gumball Green.
Stamp set is Thoughts and Prayers, Magnificent Mapel and Wonderful Wreath stamped in Crumb Cake underneath - you have to really look to see it. Great way to use a Christmas Stamp in another way!!
Love the natural feel of the Burlap ribbon (and it is being sold again in our new Celebration Occasions Catalogue YAY)
