A few more Scrapbook layouts . . .

Hello Dear Reader; another grey day another scrapbook post from me :)

   fan fair scrapbook papers loads of cycles Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 22-06-2013 14-33-21

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one is fairly simple a nice large photo mat on a bit of inked DSP with a rolled edge, and the bit that i trimmed off from the Dsp i turned over crumpled and inked for a pop of colour across the page.  This is why i love double sided DSP as you can turn your scraps into focal points.

Talking of using up scraps this uses the bit of DSP that i had ‘gutted’ from behind the layout above photo matt.  Basically if something is to be covered up you can cut out the DSP with a scalpel or trimmer and then use it elsewhere because who will know its not behind the mat?  And then you have another bit of DSP for another layout :)

This is the last layout i made using these papers Fan Fair this layout uses elements that were part of a sheet of the DSP such a quick way to make up a page.  This page also has a sneak peak on it from the new Annual Catalogue that is coming next week {!} can you guess what it is??

A postcard from . . . . .

Morning; Dear Reader; another dark and wet one here for the start of Wimbledon its quite chilly i was even tempted to light the fire!  Today i plan to do a bit more crafting and possibly settle down with a good book.  First i am going to share another layout from my Saturday crafting. . .

fan fair scrapbook pages old world map travel Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 22-06-2013 14-34-12  

This is from the same papers as yesterday Fan Fair even the embellishments were cut from a piece of the DSP, i plan to pop a photo of the Rhine River that i took whilst in Mainz last year for the Stampin’ Up! European Convention and title the page ‘A Postcard from Mainz’ once i have got round to printing off my photos!  Digital is all well and good but i always seem to take ages to get them printed off now!

A Little Distressing…..

Hello there Dear Reader; hope that your Sunday is going well?  We have awful weather here today for June it is rather windy and grey out so perfect time for curling up in the Pj’s and crafting {i know any excuse!} my two favourite things.

Yesterday i spent the day with my very dear friend Sue in the morning i attended her techniques class and in the afternoon we sat and played, for me that meant scrapbooking.  I used some of the retiring papers Fan Fair that will be leaving us at the end of the month.  They are a great set for travels and a bit vintage, and on that note i knew exactly what i needed to do to this particular page;

fan fair scrapbook pages really distressed page Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 22-06-2013 14-32-34

As you can see i have distressed it a little!  I did pre warn Sue that i was about to screw up the piece of paper that she had just given me but gave no warning to the other ladies, some of whom thought I'd gone completely potty!  I screwed and smoothed this piece of paper many times before adding liberal amounts of ink to pick up the folds and creases I'd made i then went on to do the same to the banners behind my photo mat. I really enjoyed making this page and would recommend a bit of scrunching and screwing to anyone it makes a great talking point! ;)

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Hello Dear Reader; just a quick post from me today as i have shopped and am now ready to drop as today is my birthday so Mr.C took me into Cambridge so that i could enjoy larger shops and fill my wardrobe a little.

This is a little cupcake decorating kit with sprinkles and cupcake cases from Waitrose, and then some cute decoration picks made using the 'create a cupcake stamp set and matching punch.  I thought this would be a cute small gift for the baker in your life.

Lion gift box

Morning Dear Reader; hope that you are well and that it is also sunny where you are? Today i have a project to share with you that would be perfect for holding a small gift for a little one.  It is inspired by a picture i saw on pinterest but i can’t find it now because sensibly i didn’t pin it! so if it is your creation then please let me know so that i can credit you.

gift box punch art lion floral frames framelits Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 08-05-2013 16-13-08

This cute chap is made using the floral frames framelit dies and the feet are made using the ovals framelits and the rest of him is made using a variety of circle punches.  The box behind his head was made on my score board and he also has a lion bottom for his back which is my girls favourite bit!  He takes a while to make aprox half an hour once you have everything punched and cut but the inking is very therapeutic so very enjoyable.

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s 25-year anniversary celebration, they’re bringing back some of their favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will release-one set per month- until October 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image! {and most will be new to the UK full stop as the American catalogue is much older than ours :) }

New Single Stamps!!

A few months ago Stampin’ Up! asked our North American Facebook friends what they thought of the idea of being able to buy single stamps instead of a whole set. The response was so positive that they started experimenting with it in the North American Market. The experiment has been successful—so successful that they have decided to try it out in Europe too!

From now until 31 August 2013 (or while supplies last) we're excited to offer you and your customers five single-image stamps for you to choose from!

  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you'll need to purchase a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.

Hello! {again!}

Hello Dear Reader; sorry again for the break in service we had some challenging times health wise as a family with my youngest being very ill and me still getting over my illness, we now think we have met nearly the whole of the local paramedic crew!! And although they are all lovely i hope that we don’t need to see them again any time soon!! But on wards and upwards; i have lots of projects to share with you that have been patiently waiting in the ‘to be blogged’ folder on the computer and TONS of news from Stampin’ Up! so you may get a few posts from me at once in order to catch up!

So a few weeks ago now i went to a Stampin’ Up! training day with many of my fellow UK demos and my lovely friend and fellow demo Sue, unfortunately Sue was very poorly and spent the whole event in bed in our hotel room :(

Now as Sue had offered to drive and had organised booking all the room etc i wanted to make her a little pressie and knowing that she likes a scented candle i got her a Yankee Candle and prettied it up SU-style.

This was very simple to do i wrapped some Pool Party Dsp around the candles wrapper with snail so that it could easily be taken off; then added a monogram stamped with the Notable alphabet stamp set and decorated with the Summer Silhouettes stamp set.  I’m happy to say that Sue really liked it;' which for me is half the fun of creating with a specific person in mind.
