Ink.Stamp.Share December Blog Hop - Anything Goes....

Good afternoon, welcome to my blog.  You may have joined me from the amazing Stacey or starting your journey here but either way it is nice to have you.

I have been absent for some time - firstly we moved home back in August and I don't think anyone should under estimate what that involves, never again (I said that last time!!!).  I have also been dealing with the clearance and sale of my late mum's home so it has been busy busy busy and my crafting has had to take a bit of a back step to be honest.

I was determined to take part in this month's blog hop especially with the theme of 'Anything Goes' this took the pressure off a bit and meant I am able to showcase something I have already managed to make!

I absolutely fell in love with the Brightly Gleaming Suite, it is right up my street and I cannot tell you how devastated I am that the DSP is no longer available in the UK, I had so many projects lined up for this beautiful paper but I did manage to create a few bits and bobs so I am starting with a little house box which we made a recent class.  It is large enough to hold a standard mug and some sweet treats!

When I hold my Christmas classes I try to use a variety of stamp sets which co-ordinate with my chosen DSP.  The life of the Autumn/Winter catalogue is so short that it is nice to incorporate as many as we can to highlight their versatility. 

Here are some cards I made for the same class using just a few of my favourites.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today and I am now going to pass you on to the amazing Libby for some more inspiration.

It feels good to be back!

Happy Stampin!



December Roll Call

Ink.Stamp.Share September Hop - Christmas...

Good afternoon, thank you for hopping with me today.  You may have joined me from the lovely Sue McDonald or starting your journey here but either way we have some amazing projects to share with you today with the theme of CHRISTMAS!!!  I love creating all the Christmas projects and once again this year we have some beautiful stamp sets to choose from, not to mention the beautiful papers and embellishments.

So, sit back and enjoy our hop and don't forget to leave us a comment, we always love to hear from you.

I changed my mind several times as to which stamp set I was going to highlight in this month's hop!  I couldn't really decide so instead I used a couple namely Yummy Christmas and Christmas Gleaming.  Here is what I made...

I love this little gingerbread house and I had a lot of fun colouring it using the Stampin' Blends.  The snow effect is using Shimmery White Embossing Paste.

I also couldn't resist using the Christmas Gleaming stamps.  These were heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder before I used the blends to colour them in.

And here they are together! 

I hope I have inspired you a little today and I am now going to pass you on to the amazing Melissa who I am sure has something beautiful to share with you today.

Happy Stampin'


Roll Call List

Good Morning Magnolia....


I am back, finally!  After our house move I have been without a craft room for several weeks and I feel like my right arm has been cut off.  The electrician came to install some new lights for me but found a wasp nest in the loft so after a quick call to the pest controller all was good and the decorators moved out on Thursday.  Now I need to empty the boxes and move in (quite a few boxes as you can imagine!).

So this month I am highlighting the beautiful Magnolia Lane Suite.  Here is what we made.

These papers are absolutely gorgeous, they will not disappoint.

Here are some other bits and pieces we made throughout the day.

Thank you for dropping by, I will be back soon with a craft room update!

Happy Stampin!
