My love for MINI'S

I just can't ever have enough mini albums, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. It is an awesome way to scrap a theme, holiday or event.

I was lucky enough to attend the stampin up convention back in May and had a absolute blast. What a way to start the stampin up adventure, as I only joined in April.

So in honour I had to create a mini album. It was autumn in Canberra so you can imagine how beautiful the trees were.......Yep you got it Trendy Trees stamp set beckoning to be used. It just happened to be one of our free sets from attending convention so it was perfect.

The thing that still stands out as my biggest love from convention (besides the beautiful people of course) is the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Oh this is my new best friend. I can't express how much I love this tool.

It's a stamp positioner so all your creations are perfectly aligned.

2. Stamp-a-ma-jig

They are just layered on top of each other to make a big tree.

Here is a closer look.

This is what the album looks like inside.

Hope you like it.

Until next time take care

Clever storage idea

I just wanted to share with you all a clever idea for storing your stamping around wheels. Mine have grow over the last few months and were Beginning to get out of hand.

I lovely lady at a weekend retreat told me to store them in a "Pringles" tin!!!!

Yes they fit perfectly!!!!!! I have one for my Jumbo wheels and one for my standards and the best thing is (well maybe besides eating the Pingles tht you can decorate them with pretty paper with is what we love to do best.

I must apologise about the quality of the photos, but this one I have covered with Bella Rose DSP and added a tag.

This one is covered with Urban Garden DSP and finished off with ribbon and a scalloped circle tag.

Take Care until next time

Happy 2nd Birthday Our sweet Boy

I just wanted to share some photos of our little boys 2nd Birthday. He had such a lovely day being the centre of attention. It blows my mind just how fast they pick things up. He knew exacterly what the deal was with candles and could "Hip hip hooray" at the right time.

He is very fond of the night garden, so he was given a uppsy Daisy doll (as all little boys should), kitchen acessories and play food, a new bike, lots of books and some musical instruments.

Nana thought it would be nice for him of have his very own lollie jar (I am not so sure!!!!) as all he wants to eat when we open the pantrie is off course lollies.......

We celebrated at the model steam trains at Edgeworth (in Newcastle). I love this place, it is always a great day for the kids. They all rode the trains all afternoon. Benett was mezmerised by them!!!!
He is quite a little "toot toot" fan now.
Happy Birthday our sweet little boy. You are just a little ray of sunshine in our lives. We are so proud of you and love you to bits.

Well after a little encouragement I have finally created a blog. I want this to be a place to share what I love with all that are interested. These being my lovely family and of course papercraft.

I have been scrapbooking for five years now, mostly with friends and classes I atttend in my home town Newcastle, NSW.

My latest interest is stamping. I love how easy this technique is and the amazing impact it has on a layout or card. I became an independant Stampin Up demonstrator in April 2009. I am loving sharing there beautiful products with everyone.

Well I hope that you enjoy popping by and sharing some of my creations.

I love these photos of my son giving daddy a nosey love kiss. One of the moment I hope they don't ever forget. I am passionate about recording memories. The good, bad and the ugly. My scrapbooking real life day to day experiences.

The Elephant is made from felt and blanket stiched around each piece. He is a motif off a t-shirt to copied. Then just lots of machine stitching to finish off.

Here are some of my Stampin Up creations so far:-

Gift box using pocket sillouette stamp set.

This is one of the make and takes my ladies have made in July (hello to you all!!!) using one of my favourate stamps inspired by nature.
