A couple more LO's for Brighton - please go along and say hello to Amanda on stand B04
This LO is using the Brights Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack - and one of my favourite stamps sets - Vintage Vogue. I have used Pretty in Pink Ink and Platinum Shimmer Paint.
and lots of pearls!! and can you see a little flower brad too!
and this one is my Water Boy - Jack.
Again using the same paper pack - and I have used Circle Circus stamp set - and the die cuts are from the Nursery Suite Quick Accent - who says you have to use them on baby pages! Also a new alphabet I have just purchased - Just Perfect Alphabet - a smaller alphabet that almost matches the Schoolbook Serif.

SU Quarterly Training

Hello again! Yesterday I had training with a fabulous bunch of girls (and a guy!) - who are all super talented - and I would love to thank them all for their fab work and inspiration.
I made some swaps for the day and below is my card (well I made 30 of them!) I have used my favourite Sale-A-Bration set - Bliss.
I have used my Colour Coach - to use the colour combination Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery. Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon and a little bit of bling!
You can obtain any one of these sets free for every £45.00 you spend with me - and there is no restrictions - spend £90.00 and you can get two sets - there are four to choose from - just contact me for more details.

Here are some of the fabulous swaps I recieved!
and one of my fav's - this little strawberry which was made by the talented Elaine - it contained 2 jelly beans - gotta make me some of these!!!! - but wouldn't this be fab to give a troll bead in!
keep an eye on my blog - for some more work inspired by some of my swaps - and come back tomorrow for two more scrapbook pages which will be on display at Brighton!
Thanks for stopping and taking a peek!

Whisper White 12 x 12 cardstock, Real Red cardstock and ink, Seeing Stars (115352) stamp set, title is Schoolbook Serif Alphabet (113510) and the smaller letters are stickers but they are the same as Just Perfect Alphabet (115358) - this set is on my wish list!! I have finished off the page with Basic Pearls (119247) - 150 pearls, 3 diff sizes - for £4.50 - bargin!!

Color Coach!

Hello fellow stampers and Happy New Year!!
I am hoping to keep this blog more updated this year as this will be my first full year as a Stampin Up demonstrator - so make sure you pop back every so often!
I cannot recommend this little item so much - as it makes me experiment with colours! I decided to make some quick Thank you cards for the boys Christmas presents - and decided I wanted to used my new Daffodil Delight ribbon - so I looked at my Color Coach (122228) and went from there!
I used Whisper White C/S as the base of my card and the used the Color Coach combination of Daffodil Yellow, Early Expresso and Cherry Cobbler
A gorgeous Christmas photo of my boys, a Thank you stamp and Word Window punch (119857) and 30 Thank you cards put together in minutes!
Thanks for taking a peek - and come back soon for some more Sale-A-Bration news and free stamps!!
Love and Hugs
