Pocket Scrapbooking ....

WHAT? I here you say, well for all of you who thought I had gone to the "dark side" and left behind my beloved scrapbooking, this is an alternative title for Project Life. Think of it as mini scrapbooking without the need for tons of supplies or space, and this is the hobby for you :) Following team training last month I was really inspired to reach out to a few of my friends and ask if they would be interested in a workshop or class of Project Life, Scrapbooking or Card Making, and I was so excited when my friend Lisa agreed to have a Project Life class. She has always shown a huge interest and admired my scrapbooks, but just doesn't have the time. On Friday Lisa, and four non crafting friends joined me for a class, and all made some fabulous Project Life layouts ....

Have you seen the Moo adverts that keep coming up in your facebook feeds? They advertise printing your Square Instagram photo's ..... Stampin Up! your a trend leader again, with square cards already included in the Project Life kits, they work brilliantly with the square photo's.

Nordic Noel ....

I was saying to my friend the other day, that we are all posting so many Christmas projects at the moment, what will we have to post in December? This has been due to the autumn/winter seasonal catalogue being launched in September, it has made us all forget the full annual catalogue that only came out in August, and jump ahead to Christmas :) It has been fun doing Christmas projects so early but I am going to try and make this my last one until the festive season really begins :) we did have fun trying to get our "angled" pieces of paper right. I thought the card candy across the top looked a little like Christmas lights :)

Moonlight ....

I don't know if you have noticed these paper stacks that Stampin Up have been doing for a while, they are a really handy size for card makers, but also easily cross over for Scrapbooking layouts and other projects. These few cards have been made from the Moonlight stack, and I am hoping to get around to scrapping with them soon.
The stamp set is an exclusive Hostess only set:)

Trim the Tree ....

Following on from my Santa Stache post, I managed to make a simple scrapbook layout with the Trim the Tree paper stack. I have had some real problems with my laptop lately and ended up wiping everything off it :( Love technology when it is working but as soon as something goes wrong I am a complete cabbage! Ah well, we can't be good at everything, but technology is supposed to make life easier and when it goes wrong it is the most frustrating thing in the world to me. at least I can retreat to paper and glue :)

To take advantage of this offer you need to sign up via the page at the top of the blog "Joining" and follow the link to my personal I.d. from there it is simple, just follow the prompts. :) The papers are redeemable from November 2014 until April 2015.
  • The paper must be ordered via a Demonstrator Order each month. If you are not ordering anything else at the same time then there will be a postage charge but this would still mean your papers were half price.
