Scrappy Sarurday…

Seeing as though it is May 1 & the beginning of Scrapbooking Month, what better way to start off than with 2 pages for you.
Very basic simple pages, but I wanted them to be that way.  I didn’t want the stamps, etc to take away from the photos.

Cards & Things – # 27…

I’ve been trying to clean up & come across some small scraps of cardstock.  Circle Circus just happen to be in my hand at the same time, so I quickly whipped up a couple of Thank You Cards which I used this morning……

While I had all the mess going, I decided to have a go at the Challenge over at and used the same stamp set and sort of the same idea.

In Colours….

G’Day Stampers,
I’ve just finished creating a set of 6, 5 x 5 Gift Cards and Wallet for a friend.  I’ve used all the Australian Current Stampin’ Up!® “In” Colours.  I then made envelopes to suit the size & to match the cards.
I got to use my new Butterfy Punch which is in the latest Stampin’ Up!® current Mini-Catalogue.
Don’t forget this Mini ends 31st March!
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Great Friend
Ink – Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze
Cardstock – Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango,  Kiwi Kiss,
Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP – Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron,
Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette
Punches – Butterfly, Eyelet, Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon,
Mini-Dots, Uni Ball Gel Pen
Non-SU – Rhinestones
Gosh, I hope I haven’t forgotten anything.
I created a Wallet specially to hold the cards, which closes of its own accord, so I didn’t need to use anything to hold it closed.
I typed Mary’s name on the pc & then punched it out using the Large Oval Punch 
Using the butterfly stamp from “Great Friend”, I’ve stamped the image onto the card, then again onto Whisper White, cut this image out & using mini-dots, adhereded to card.  You can’t see it in the pics – sri
Card & Matching Envelopes – Kiwi Kiss & Riding Hood Red
Cards & Matching Envelopes – Pacific Point & Tangerine Tango

One Box, Sooooo Many Uses….

G’Day Stampers,

I’ve been off the air lately, but last night sat myself down & created a box.  I don’t know how or what possessed me, but I just knew that I had to come up with something which I could use for many things – jewellery box, pencil case, chocolates, office, etc.  The list is endless. 
This one is going into my own bag, as I can never find my pens and will include my office supplies which I carry around with me.  It is not very big, that it will take up a lot of room!  My ruler even fits into it!
