Well I have never been to a 'stampin up' demo before and on Friday I went to two in one day...well actually the first one was a class which I did with Sue here in Castle Hill...click on her name and check out her blog she has some gorgeous cards...here is a photo of the two I made with her on Friday...
Then on Friday night I went to a Stamp up demo held at my friend Sarah's house...we made a very cute Christmas card and a Christmas "gift card" envelope...
Ohhh I got a call from Sheena at RASBERRY yesterday and she is sending me more wonderful product to play with... can't wait to see the new stuff...in the meantime here are a couple of layouts I have done.. one using the "schoolies" papers and the other is using the "squashed" papers!
Okay I saw this gorgeous layout on Lindsey's blog and had to scraplift, she is so inspirational and check out her new "mini card sketch" blog here , I am going to try and give this a go as I am not really into making cards but I would love to try ... I have used the Twiddleybitz "heartbreaker" wordette on this layout, I love these words so easy to use and great idea for your titles!!!
Not much happening here... just trying to get organized for a few events coming up... 1Worldscrap have their Scrappink Day on Oct 18.. there are some great challenges and prizes so hope on over and join their scrappink forum here...
