BIA Note Book

Here is a little Bind-it-all note book that I made over the weekend. It hasn't come out quite the way I thought it was going to, but it's not too bad. The papers I used are from Papermania, The ribbon is from SU and I purchase my SU from Jules. The Greeting is made with the Oval all stamp set and the SU oval punches.

Hopefully be back soon. Have a good day.

Julie's stampers 10 Clubs

Hi everyone, Just wanted to spread the word for the Fabulous Jules about her Stampers 10 Clubs. Julie is a Stampin Up Demo and runs her clubs from October until July. If you sign up for one of her clubs you agree to purchase £15.00 worth of stampin up goodies per month for 10 months. There are 10 people in each club and you each have a month where you are Hostess. This means when it is your month you can earn Free products and a hostess gift.
Please click here to go to Julie's blog for more details.

I would just like to say that I joined one of julie's clubs last year and have already put my name down for this year. It is an excellent way of building up your SU products and Jules provides an excellent service. She is very Friendly and always so Helpful. Why not pop over and take a look on her blog.

Tilda Picking Lilacs

Today I have two cards to show you. I made these over the weekend. Please excuse the photos my camera is getting very old and only switches on when it wants to and then it takes very poor pictures (and my photography has some part to play!! lol)The card above has been coloured with Pro markers and then the image cut out with nestabilities. The backing paper is cardstock from the DCWV Latte stack that I bought at The Craftroom. The image is Tilda picking Lilacs. The flowers are Prima and the Brads are from Dovecraft, again all purchased at The Craftroom.

This second card was made using the My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow paper pack. The image has again been coloured with Pro markers. The greeting is a stamp from Hero arts.

Hope everyone is having a good day, it's very sunny here today. Will be back a little later with some pics of my craft room. I am waiting for hubby to put up a new shelving unit that is from Craftracks and will house all of my ink pads ect.
Have a good day

I'm Still here!!

A big hello to everyone, I AM still here!! I have had a very busy few months and decided that something had to give, so decided to take a break from blogging. Now that things have calmed down a bit here hopefully I will have the time to get back into the swing of updating my blog and even a bit of blog hopping!

Here are a few cards that I have made recently.

I tried to keep these quite simple. The top one was coloured with Whisper pens and the other two where coloured with my Pro Markers.

Hope everyone is ok and having a good weekend. Hopefully be back a little later with some more cards. Ta ta for now
