Bella and friends ....

Here's another set that I haven't used yet from the full annual catalogue, and I did say I would give us all a break from all the Christmas samples, so here are a couple of cute cards made with the Bella and Friends stamp set.
I have also finally used my In Colour paper stack and for the first time and my Ruched Ribbon in Sweet Sugarplum.

By The Shore ....

Just returning from your summer holidays? Sick of all these Christmas posts already, well I did say I still had several things to share from the full annual catalogue, and these papers are one of them. I ordered them ages ago, and don't know why I haven't gotten round to using them, I love all things "sea" themed, and enjoyed making this scrapbook layout with the papers and Swirly Scribbles dies, and the card with the papers and Layering Love sentiments :) I still have loads left to make another layout, and that is from just a half pack of paper as I have sent the other half of it on to a friend.

Jolly friends ....

I am so surprised at how I have fallen for this stamp set. "Cute" is not normally me, but I couldn't resist this reindeer when I saw a sample card in the seasonal catalogue. As soon as I started to use the set (Stamps and Punch) the ideas just flew out, and I know this is just the start of many of my Christmas cards this year.

Peace This Christmas ....

One of the first sets that I bought from the new seasonal catalogue because I just loved the swirly script of the two sentiment stamps, and also thought it could be quite versatile. I started by making this simpe card, and then I stamped some background A4 sheets to create my own "papers". These are the resulting cards, hoe you enjoy them ....

Northumberland ....

I've wanted to visit Northumberland for a few years now. It was put on my radar by ladies I had met through crafting, who were always posting fantastic photo's of themselves walking there dogs on the beach, or general scenery around the area they live in. Finally we made a visit last month and had a wonderful week exploring the area. I would highly recommend it, and it was so nice to be able to pack up the car and not have to travel to the airport. There's so much to see and do in Northumberland, and I took some great photo's for my scrapbook :)

Pop of Pink ....

Feeling all fired up on the scrapbooking front today. I just had a whole weekend away scrapping and managed 11 layouts in one weekend !! Wow, that is a massive record for me, and I have continued today by finally using these gorgeous Stampin Up papers, Pop of Pink and also making a simple card with a bit of sparkle :)
