Urban Underground ....

Just made a few quick scrapbooking layouts with the new Urban Underground designer papers from Stampin Up, they are in the new Spring Summer seasonal catalogue, great colours and so versatile ..

on the second layout I have teamed the papers with the Urban District stamps, but more from these later, I have used the small stamps of screw, nuts and tacks that come with them to form a background mount for my photo, and then I have stamped and coloured the tools .....

January Sales ....

Hi there, I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season. I normally do a post around this time of year titled "It's the most wonderful time of the year" I love that song and it just makes me laugh at the cheesiness of it :) I also use that as a title for my blog post because I consider the Sale-a-Bration promotion that Stampin Up hold each January (through March) to be the best offer of the year, it is simply the SU version of the January sales, but what is even better is that it coincides with a new seasonal catalogue launch. What better time for Stampin up to offer us a Sale-a-Bration free item for EVERY £45 we spend. So starting 4th January, grab yourself a free item (from the Sale-a-Bration brochure) for every £45 spend from the full annual catalogue or the brand new Spring Summer seasonal ....... I can't post links to the full brochures yet, but here are some sneaks of the front covers .....

Cookie Cutter ....

Really love these stamps and the coordinating punch, the punch cuts out Santa, the Eskimo and the gingerbread man, but then when turned upside down, the "legs" cut round the reindeer antlers allowing you to use it on the reindeer stamp as well. I apologise for not adding sentiments to these very quick cards I made today .....

Presents & Pinecones DSP ....

Just another quick post with these gorgeous designer series papers, although you can't see much of the papers in this layout, I do love them. At first glance in the seasonal catalogue, I had overlooked them as I thought there were a lot of yellows in the papers that didn't appeal to me, but when you actually get them, and see the beautiful greens blended together, they really inspired me :) I know I will be making more layouts with these ....
The green wreath / boarder round the outside is made using a stamp from the Foxy friends set.

Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies ....

While I love the copper metal pinecones in my last post, I have to mention these gorgeous dies. I think they are worth every penny because I can never see them dating, I love the clear embossed image created on the pine cones themselves, and then the lovely "spruce" twigs, which could be used on loads of cards and layouts ....   here's a gift card wallet that we made at team training.
