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.

Woohoo! This is new territory for me! My very first blog hop!!
Welcome, if you are new to my blog, lovely to meet you and it would be great if you like what you see here and become a regular visitor.
You should have arrived here from Elaine's blog, isn't her work gorgeous?! I adore her creations, I just wish I could emulate some of them. Elaine is going to be my room mate at the Stampin Up convention in November maybe some of her inspiration will rub off on me.
Anyway, enough of my rambling, I have a couple of cards to share with you. I am definitely beginning to get into the Christmas mood, I have been playing with a new stamp set form the Autumn and Winter seasonal catalogue called Snowflake Soiree.
I stamped the snowflake with Staz-on ink onto vellum cardstock and then took the tool that comes with the score board and embossed parts of the design from the back. It really enhances the snowflake and makes it look really frosty. The flower punch is perfect for cutting it out then I attached it to the card with a brad in the centre.
This photo has distorted the colour slightly but the card base is Night of Navy, I stamped randomly over the background with the "Merry" stamp and then just once with Whisper White Kraft ink.
I have another for you!
I have been wanting to try this technique for a while, layering up three pieces of card and then stamping across them. It looks so much more complicated than it is and I really don't do difficult; life is too short.
The stamp is another snowflake from Snowflake Soiree, stamped in Night of Navy ink as is the Noel greeting. I added a touch of sparkle using another new product to Stampin Up, Dazzling Details glitter. It shows up better if you click on the photo.
I hope you're enjoying the blog hop, next stop is Hayley but just in case you get lost along the way here is the whole list.
Have a great day, hope to see you again soon
