Project Life

I am starting up classes as from tonight.  They will be held on the first Friday night & the last Wednesday night of the month, so please contact me if you would like to come along.

Project Life is quick, fun & EASY!

We will be creating 2 x 6″ x 8″ pages both of which will have a section for your journaling & a space for your photo.  You can also change it to what you like & have 2 or 3 photos to your page.

This is the perfect time to make a start on all your photos sitting in boxes at home or even printing off a couple of your favourites by putting them into a scrapbook.

This month we will be playing with the lovely new “Lift Me Up” Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue AND the coordinating “Carried Away” DSP from the 2017 SAB Catalogue.

If you would like to attend, please contact me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




Thank You

I decided to create the Birthday Card from a couple of days ago for my Thank You Cards this month with a few slight differences.

I don’t have any of the cards left at this point so I can’t really give you the measurements or a tutorial for that matter.

Again I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Card to a piece of Transfer Adhesive Sheet prior to running it through the Big Shot using the Striped Scallop Thinlit Die.  I carefully peeled the shape away from the Transfer Sheet leaving all the little shapes adhered to the Sheet for another project & adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla Card.  This was then adhered to the Base Card – Strawberry Slush.

I run the Thinlit through the Big Shot a couple more times, this time using scraps of Coastal Cabana & Strawberry Slush Card before randomly adhering the shapes to the middle of the scallops.

The “Thank You” is from the “Four You” Stamp Ste, stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card with Strawberry Slush Ink & cut using the Project Life Cards & Labels Thinlits & adhered to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



Happy Birthday

My card today is one I saw on Pinterest & thought it would make a lovely Birthday Card for Di who celebrated her Birthday early on in the month.

As I poste the card before writing a tutorial, I will try & remember how I created the card.

I adhered a piece of Coastal Cabana Card to a Transfer Adhesive Sheet, added the Striped Scallop Thinlit to the top & ran it through the Big Shot.  This saves you a little bit of time & effort by trying to apply adhesive to the back of the cut out Thinlit as the Transfer Adhesive Sheet has already done it for you.

All you have to do, is carefully remove the cut our Scallop & adhere to a same size of Very Vanilla Card prior to adhering to a Very Vanilla Base Card.

I then proceeded to do the same with scrap pieces of Coastal Cabana & Strawberry Slush Card but adhered them randomly to the Card uses Multi-Purpose Glue or even Snail.

The “Birthday Wishes” from “Four You” Stamp Set was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla in Strawberry Slush Ink, cut with the Die from Project Life Cards & Labels prior to adhering to top of card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A very easy, but effective card using scraps of the In Colours that are due to retire this year.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



this month

Project Life

With I’ve been trying to get back into scrapbooking for a couple of months now & for some reason the motivation has not been there, so this morning I sat myself down, sorted through a couple of photos & decided that I was going to scrap 2 albums (I know, I don’t do things by halves) for Christmas – 1 for each of my 2 nieces for this year & give them as a Christmas present.

With this “idea” in mind, I decided that it was the perfect time to start using Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  Mind you, I have done a couple of these albums over the last few years but non-SU! & just by going what Becky Higgins was doing.  I used to 001plmake all my own stuff for the albums as I couldn’t get the product here.  So much easier when it is all done for you.

With my photo, Project Life Pocket Page, Everyday Adventure” Card Collections & Accessory Pack, I sat down & started playing with colours & patterns.  To begin with, I wanted to pick up the gorgeous colour of Elaina’s hair & found the perfect match from the Card Collections.

With only the 1 photo to pop onto the page, I decided that I would layer the photo onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock prior to layering onto 1 of the pattern cards, punched 3 small flowers using the “Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack” (Retired), popped 3 x small Pearls to the centre of each prior to adhering along the top of photo & popped it into a pocket – Easy!

I then printed “Capturing the” onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, stamped with an image from “Work of Art” in Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight Inks prior to adhering a small Black Stripe Banner from the Accessory Pack over the top.  I printed “MOMENTS” onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, cut it into a Banner Shape & popped it over the black stripe banner with a Stampin’ Dimensional prior to popping into a pocket.  Another done & dusted!

With the idea forming that I wasn’t going to do the journaling but leave a space for Danielle to it, I printed “January 2015” onto a matching Card & popped it into a pocket – How easy is this?

To complete the page, I popped a matching card into the final pocket!  Nothing to it!

Once I had decided on the colours, etc this page took me all of about 10 minutes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
