I'd love to see you over at my new blog My Bird Flying Free

Monday, March 5, 2012


As some of you will already know I have today resigned from Stampin' Up! it was not a decision I've made lightly- in fact it's taken me 6 months to actually make the final decision.

I love SU product and I have a lot of respect for the company and that's why I'm resigning. My Design Team work means I now have to use and showcase other company products and I didn't want to be in breach of the SU rules.

My other blog will now be the only one active, I'd love to see you visit My Bird Flying Free.

I hope to still see some of you at Crafters Anonymous where I'll be continuing to design and I'm hoping I'll get invites to regionals as a guest :-)

Have a Great Week.

October Scrapbook Page

I'm still working on my pages for the Crafters Anonymous 12 months of the year challenge, here's my october page, just November to go.
The DSP and stamp set is all SAB, I just love this paper. I've stamped in Craft White, then coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

Enjoy the long weekend.

A nice CAS card to showcase my current favourite DSP, I've used it with the co-ordinating stamp set too.

I'm entering this card at 2 of my favourite challenges too:

Over at Gingersnap Creations they're asking us to use our favourite patterned paper :-)

And over at The Paper Players it's Clean and Simple week with "add a tag". I guess the tags kinda small, but adds a pretty accent.

Colour Combo: Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Whisper White.
Stamp Set: Fresh Vintage
DSP: Everyday Enchantment.
All Supplies: Stampin' Up!

Have a great week.

I haven't done any digital scrapbooking for a while, but I got inspired by a Freebie from Stampin' Up Facebook page and Just Add Ink's new Scrapbook challenge.
I'll probably do an actual paper page of our cute chicks too, but I'm pretty happy how the page has turned out, I wanted a simple cottage kind of feel.

Stampin' Up! - A Day in the Life.
Various other elements collected over the years :-)
