“Heat Embossing!”

I seem to be creating more Stampin Up projects at the moment as I have another class on Tuesday showing some ladies how to heat emboss! I love our new 2012/2014 In Colours and I have used them to create these cards! I am not big on heat embossing but thought I had better have a refresher course!!

These cards I stamped with the Pappillion Potpourri stamp set with Versamark then used the white emboss powder! The card stock is Cake Crumb and Midnight Muse with the matching ink!

I love the gorgeous butterflies in this set and they look great embossed!

For this one I used Summer Star Fruit and Raspberry Ripple Cardstock and inks , with the matching ink and Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set! The large blossom looks gorgeous heat embossed!!

If you like these cards and would like to learn this technique just let me know and you can have your own class!!

“Post It Note Holders!”

Good Evening all, I have had a little time to have a bit of a scrap and I have made some Post It Note Holders for my Door Prizes at next weeks scrap workshop!

They were quite easy to make from this tutorial at Chic’n Scratch! Angie is a very clever SU demo in the USA!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSrNmafj9-c

I used some Whisper White as the base and then some scraps of different DSP to make them!! They were fun and they make great gifts for teacher’s, Mums day etc!

Hope you have a go at making them!

“My Humble Beginings!”

It seems like forever since I have scraped! Maybe not quite but I needed some time out! Last night the boys were out for dinner so I decided to join Heather and the girls at Home and Scrapped for our Monthly Step By Step!! It is so much fun working on a layout with the girls and catching up with them all! I can’t see them but it is just like being there with them!!

I think my layout title says it all!  These photos I wanted to scrap to show how much things have changed since I started Scraping in 2000. There weren’t any scrap shops around and I started off like many others by having a CM party!! Shortly after that the Scrapbook craze hit Australia and hasn’t stopped!!

I had a small scrap space, no computer and minimal supplies!

Now it is never-ending and I know I have been soo lucky to be able to buy what I have wanted, and now as an SU Demo a whole new wonderful world has opened up to me and yes, I am still adding to my scrap stash! lol!!!

“Layout In Progress!”

Hi Everyone,

I know I have been a bit AWOL this last week!  Appointments for mum and dad, Cody starting his new job and being sick also had me on the hop a bit! lol!! Things have settled and Cody is enjoying his job, even more when he gets his first pay! lol!! Don’t think I have even had time for the ‘mojo’ to even flow!

I have another Stampin’ Up! workshop next Wednesday which I am really look forward to! This months promotions have kept me busy and ‘working’! Just wanted to share you my ‘work in progress’ layout for this workshop! Ruth, my lovely Hostess, wants to learn how to use our Stampin’ Around Wheels and I jumped at the chance to show how versatile and time-saving they are! I do have a ‘little collection’ of them! hehe!!

This is the basic design. The girls will get to use the Wheels and play with some of the Spice Cake DSP available till the 31/3. I am still playing with the embellies and just waiting for my order to come on Monday which has a new stamp set and a couple of new punches I want to use on it also!!

I had a few scraps left over and made a few cards to show how quick it makes a background for pages or cards!

I was having fun playing and made a few ‘Grunge Flowers‘ with the Scallop Punch to use up my left overs!! My tutorial for making these is above in the Header!

I will show the finished layout very shortly!!
