Morning! Are you all as excited to see all the creations along the blog hop as I am? I shall spend the morning browsing all the posts and getting inspired, all the girls make such beautiful things.
I have a couple of new projects to share with you.
Firstly, Project Life has landed at Stampin Up, Woohoo!!! It is a very straightforward, quick and easy way of scrapbooking your memories and life events. There are various designs of divided pages which have pockets for you to pop your photos and journalling inside.
For my page I chose to record the time that my daughters uni friends came to camp with us so that they could make their latest film. I found all the equipment and procedures totally fascinating so I snuck a few photos of them looking very professional. You can see a couple of the new In-Colours, I backed my photos onto Lost Lagoon card and used Hello Honey for my title blocks, the lettering is from one of the new Photopolymer alphabet stamp sets. Now, I am a fan of the 12x12 scrapbooking style with lots of layers and embellishments so I felt I needed to add a little more to my page. I used the On Film framelits to cut out a film slide and a little camera and also added a couple of pieces of Hello Honey stitched satin ribbon to complete it.
Want to see some more?
I am going to get a lot of use out of this new stamp set! In This Together is just perfect for all your girlfriends. I used the wonderful new blendabilities pens to colour the images, I need some practise but oh my they are going to be great for adding shade and depth to my colouring. I used cherry cobbler for my card base and added some more of the gorgeous new ribbon in hello honey and mellow moss.
OK, one last project...
I just wanted to show you a sample of one of the new designer series papers. This is from Lullaby and I used the papers to cover a basic shoppers notepad and turn it into a lovely gift.
Here is the list of blog hoppers, enjoy hopping.

Oh my goodness! How long since I last blogged?!
Well, lots has happened since then and there are lots of exciting things on the horizon too!
The new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue launches next week and as as demonstrator I have been able to try out some of the new products ahead of the launch day.
To celebrate, the team I am part of have decided to have a blog hop so that we can share with you lots of new products and ideas of how you might use them.
The hop is taking place tomorrow after 9am. It's not complicated, visit me here and my post will link to the next person and so on until you come round in a big circle.
I can't wait to see all the lovely things my fellow demonstrators have made. Hope you can find time to join me tomorrow and I promise that with the new year of the catalogue there will be a new me blogging much more often
