I'm so excited ........ and I just can't hide it ...........

so i've really got to share it.

You guys all know I am totally in love with Stampin up Products.  They are fab, amazing and very versatile.  But best of all I just love sharing this with my friends.   We had a coffee and craft morning this week, sat around my kitchen table.  Just chatted and made cards and notebooks.  It was great and very relaxing.  But the icing on the cake was getting up yesterday to find that ....

STAMPIN UP is now on-line

So, what are you waiting for, go get yourself a coffee, get comfy and then browse through our fantastic selection of craft products online in my very own store.

This is sooooo exciting, whats more you still get to earn your free stamp sets and accessories.  Its a great way to join in the fun.  Just click on the link above and enjoy.

Here's a card we made on Wednesday to inspire you .........

The girls chose this gorgeous Costal Cabanna colour combo.  It's just gorgeous.

A little bit of brightness ..........

At Stampin Up they have made it easy for you to colour co-ordinate your projects.  All inks, papers, markers and accessories come in colour ranges.

I decided to try out one of my favourite quick albums in the BRIGHTS collection.  This range is stunning.  Anyway with a couple of teenagers in the house it was easy to collect the 10 toilet roll holders needed.  The Swallowtail butterfly was just jumping out at me  and I just knew it would look fantastic in these colours.

I made the covers and hinges, and decorated the toilet roll inners, before making tags and decorating them.

Here's the result:
The Front

The back of the tags.

So you see, even the smallest of mini albums can hold a wealth of memories.  If you fancy holding a workshop to learn how to do this drop me an email. (Address at the top of the blog).  All items used to make this can also be ordered direct from me.

Everything apart from the toilet roll holders, is a Stampin Up product.  The card and inks and ribbons are all from the Brights collection.  I made the tags using a stamping punch and die set.  All the fronts of the tags were stamped using different stamp sets in Coastal Cabanna and Tangerine Tango.

I had great fun making this litte bit of cuteness.

DON'T FORGET  to check out my blog over the next couple of days to see the wonderful Christmas goodies we have on offer.

Have a great day.
