Christmas Stamp-a-Stack

Where on earth did August go???!!! It's whizzed by for me, what with road trips to Pudsey in Yorkshire to see my fabulous friend Jules and then our family holiday which we just got back from last night. I've almost felt like I've lived out of a suitcase for the last 2 weeks. I'll be glad to get back to a bit of normality this week and some female company too, but saying that I've an absolute chocker month coming up which includes a very special 12 hour Retreat on the 10th September. I could be in for a few loooong nights to make sure it all goes to plan.

Anyway, last thing I remember telling you about was the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack at the beginning of August. It's been a bit of a wait for you but at long last here's the cards that were made.
There were 24 attendees and they each made 12 cards (2 of each design) - that's a whopping 288 cards made in 4 hours!


It was a full house last time so if you'd like to attend the next event then please email me at to reserve your place.

Springtime Vintage layout #3!

I'm on a roll with this months Springtime Vintage Scrapbook Kit. This is my 3rd layout and I can still get another 12x12 page and some cards from it! A bargain for only £15.
My favourite stamp set to use for Scrapbooking has to be 'Just Believe'. I've also added the little flowers from the 'Baby Blossoms' set so it blends in with the papers. The stitching with the Linen Thread came to me in a flash  of inspiration as I needed something to add to the bottom right hand corner of the page. I'm going to use this idea on my cards and pages more I reckon. Another simple idea that adds that finishing touch.

You can see the full details of this months kit here and the other 2 layouts I've created with the kit here and here.

Next months kit is something a little different. You'll be able to purchase all the supplies to create a Mini Album WITH instructions. 

If you're a Scrapbooker, new to it or would like to take the plunge, these kits are ideal as I take all the hardwork out of designing your pages for you. I'll provide inspiration, ideas and new techniques for you to simple copy or change as you wish.

Right, off to tackle my ironing pile yet again.

See ya soon!


p.s. Don't tell my hubby but I photoshopped out all my wrinkles but left his in....shhhhh!!
