Bloomin’ Marvellous!

Firstly i am sorry this is Friday’s post, my problems with blogger continued over the weekend so i decided to start again today with a new week.  Finger’s crossed this will post correctly!

Morning All, I hope that you have had a good weekend?  I have a poorly M off school today she has suspicious spots that could be chicken pox so i need to take her to the doctors to see what they are before she can go back to school.  Unfortunately she is missing a school trip to the local museum and is desperately trying to convince us that she is well but the thermometer is not on her side and shows that she still has the fever from Saturday! Bless her i hate that she is missing out.

woyww- January 23rd 2013

Morning All!! I have the dreaded lurgy this week and no voice {prob to the joy of my hubby Winking smile } so i think i will be able to get round tons of desks as I've been told by hubby to do nothing so apart from school runs that is what i intend to do.  Smile 


SO here’s my desk this morning, as i was ill in bed all weekend hubby did a scoop and drop from dining table to here so that we could have his birthday tea yesterday the big rosette is what i had made to go on his cake.  There’s some remnants of the brown paper that our SU goodies come protected by because i flatten it all down and slice it through my guillotine and make bedding for our guinea piggy's other than that not much exciting.  The card up in the air on the wall is on bakers twine ‘washing lines’ where i hang bits to dry or just keep safe till I'm finished will be in one of my upcoming classes.

Happy desk hopping every one

Until Next time

For the one you love…

Morning All; today i thought i would share with you a Valentines card that i designed for a class that i taught earlier in the month using the You are Loved stamp set.

you are loved valentines card rehinstones embossing folders Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2012 29-12-2013 11-46-51

Now there is no such thing really as a manly Valentines Card but i did try by using the gorgeous midnight muse as my main colour its a lovely rich colour i have used it tons lately as i just love how well it co ordinates with so many different colour pallets. This time i paired it with rose red {so a tiny bit of pink!} and here’s a sneak peak of an upcoming Sale-a-bration can you spot the new item?  I have added a bit of bling with a couple of flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch i have used this punch so much and it comes in a set of 3 so they’re great value, and a butterfly from glimmer paper the perfect way to use glitter with out the mess!

Unfortunately my lovely husband has seen this card as i prepped for my class so i shall have to come up with another for him!

ETA: i got around 118 desks this week but i think i shall have to give up there i will try my best to get round the rest as the week goes on thank you to all for your kind comments i love to read them.  {7.30pm} 

Morning all that follow time for our weekly snoop around the crafty desks of the world.
If you are not sure what i am talking about pop over to queen Julia at Stamping Ground and join us in our weekly snoop :)
So my desk today…… Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 15-01-2013 08-00-30 15-01-2013 Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 15-01-2013 08-00-30
A bit of a mess! I had a delivery yesterday from Stampin’ Up! so i spent the morning wearing a tread in the carpet by the window stalking the UPS man!  Under the new DSP you can just see the new Sale-a-bration Catalogues and the new upcoming Spring/Summer Seasonal that i have had to hide as i can’t show you all their loveliness just yet!  Some people asked me where i store my stamps last week; well at the top of the photo you can see that i have two sets of shelves above my desk and they are both full with stamps on the tope shelf behind all the 12x12 there are even more Stamps! I have a mix of wood and clear mount.  I also have retired SU stamps in a cupboard behind my desk and a huge box of my Penny black collection that i have had since i was 8 that i cant bare to part with under our bed.

I shall try to get round as many desks as possible today; its very cold here today with more Snow forecast so i shall be feeding logs to our fire today, my youngest got up this morning and said ‘come on Daddy go get the logs Mr Fire will be hungry!’ bless!

Until Next time

Up, Up and Away……

Good morning i have been doing a bit of spring cleaning of the old memory card and found some pictures of projects that i took and forgot to show you so i shall be posting them over the next few weeks.  I  have also decided that this year i am going to post three times a week a Monday, what's on your workdesk Wednesday and on a Friday, I plan to schedule the Monday and Friday posts so you may get a bonus post from me on other days if you are lucky Winking smile 

Todays card uses the Up, Up & Away stamp set from the main catalogue.

up up and away hot air balloons Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2012 11-06-2012 21-27-36

I used a crumb cake base {my favourite base} and the 2011-2013 in colours i recessed the sentiment using the word window punch.  I finished it off with some bakers twine.
I love this set it is perfect for everyone, its just such a happy set.  The sentiment is now retired, but one from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set would fit in perfectly.

Happy New Year Desk Snoopers! Winking smile I do hope that you all had a lovely Holiday?  In the Camp household we had a fairly relaxed one we spread the family out over a few days meaning that the girls didn't get super hyper in a present opening madness!!

So onto the desk……. its a mess!  I got two new trimmers for Christmas and 10 stamp sets!!  I was obviously a good girl but now i have the space problem and am double stacking my shelves.


You can see one of my new trimmers in this photo i am SO in love its brilliant!!  But i have been productive not just stroking my new stash! lol  I have prepped a class that i am teaching at the weekend at the Cambridge Scrapbooking and Card making Club; and all bar the bits for one of the cards which i need to cut today all the projects are prepped and ready on my window sill.

And i have even spread my mess to the brand new dining table that arrived 3 days after Christmas and the top of the dresser, where my other new trimmer is living at the mo..


So on my to do list today is to finish cutting for the last project and load my boxes up and then tidy my space and the bits I've spread to!

I shall try and get round as many blogs as possible today i don't think i shall do as well as my last post of all of them before noon but hey a girl can try! lol

Have a healthy happy new year.
