DEMONSTRATOR'S STAMPIN' UP! MINI BLOG HOP...


Morning everyone, and are we having fun on our hop this morning?? There are some amazing projects that we are seeing from the new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue that is released on the 1st April (next week!) If you don't already have a copy of the catalogue please email me if you would like me to send you one!

Well you have just joined me from Linda's Blog and she always manages to make fantastic projects, I love the colours that she has chosen, her work always looks stunning - check out her blog on a Tuesday for a colour challenge as well!

For my first project I have chosen Vintage Vogue this a a set of 8 stamps and is £19.95. I have decided to make a scrapbook page. It is 6x6 and I have used basic black card. I have inked the egdes of the layout with craft ink, once I had done this I stamped the vine from the stamp set in the corners. I stamped three in each corner and then the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, I also stamped this in craft ink. I then added a picture that I left a white border on and mounted this on black card stock and inked the edges in craft. In the top left I added a large flower detail also from the stamp set and used the smaller flower as the centre, sticking them down with dimensionals. In the bottom right of the picture i just used one of the smaller flowers and stuck this w ith a dimensional. For those of you that don't know my wedding day was very rushed - In the true sense of the word it was a shotgun wedding - I was five months pregnant! and I organised the whole day in 12 weeks! I believe this a) saved money b) saved a lot of stress and c) kept me slim! Although I was in and out of hospital beforehand and was not fitted for my dress until the Saturday before the big day! I love this picture as instictively John reached out to touched my belly as he kissed me, where our little man was hiding! This is only my third attempt at a proper scrapbook layout so I have kept it very simple and not added much colour - especially as it was a wedding shot. I hope you like it and I think that the Vintage Vogue set is perfect for something like this - it looks so classic!

The second project that I have made is a matchbox treat holder and a set of cards I have adapted a swap I received at regional training from Deborah O'd (you have already visited her this morning on your travels!) A really simple design and closed with a simple filigree brad to secure it. For this project I have used the Sweet Pea stamp set £9.95 for a set of 5 - not everybodys cup of tea but I love it. I have used this set more than any other since I unpacked my order! The colours that I have chosen for the cards and the holder are all from the brights family - needed colour after the other project LOL I have chosen yoyo yellow, gable green, orchid opulence and tempting turquoise! I have first of all stamped a basic black bird on the yellow card and mounted this on orchid and then on green card, for the top of the holder I did the same and stamped the flower from the set in yellow.

The four cards are 3x3 and I have done one in every colour. The turquoise one I have stamped three birds on whisper white in tempting turquoise ink and inked the edges. I have then mounted this on orchid card and used the wheel to decorate the card blank. The second card is made using the flowers from the set the middle stamped in yellow and cut out, this then added to the second layer stamped in ruby red and cut out, this then layered onto a punched circle 11/4' in chocolate chip - you cannot see it very well but I have wheeled the card blank in yellow also. The green card is using a totally new product to us in the UK - felt and yes it did ever so slightly remind me of the fuzzy stuff! This set is £6.50 for 52 pieces - bargain. So for this card I have wheeled the card blank and inked the edges I have added two brads in the bottom right hand corner and then punched a 11/4' circle in chocolate chip. I have added the leaf decoration to this and then matted the flower centre to this and stuck it to the left hand side of the card. I haven't added anything else as I didn't want to take away from the felt. The final card is the orchid one - with the wheel on the card blank and the edges of the card inked. I have added a green panel with the stamped flower on and the stamped three of the birds in green, orchid and turquoise at opposing angels onto whisper white and inked the edges of this panel in orchid. Phew longest post ever for me!!
