Stampin Up ~ Seaside

When I was looing through the current Stampin up catalogue to choose my demo kit one stamp set in particular caught my eye & kept creeping further up my wish list.
I love the beach & walking by the sea is one of the places I go whenever I need to re-charge my batteries, so its no wonder I was drawn to this set.

Feathered Hope

Mens cards as we all know are very hard to make unless the recipient falls into the stero typical football loving, car loving drinker. In reality most men dont fall into these categories making it very hard to make appropriate male cards.
When ever a craft rep comes into work or our buyer goes out on a buying trip ideas for men are always top of the list.
Stampin up however do have sets that are really nice for men. I have found feathered hope that I bought in america just such a set & often dust it off when I make mens cards.

Scrapbooking ~ A learning curve

I have recently been inspired By the very talented Jane to do more scrapbooking, its something that I have wanted to do more of for a long time but have never been so inspired. Going to Janes house is lovely as she has scrap pages hanging in all of the rooms & they are so cool not to mention inspiring.
I did start a scrapbook two years ago of a family holiday in Brittany, but a couple of months after the holiday my father in law died and it was painful to have all of the holiday pictures out as it was the last family holiday he came on.

Well today I have completed a whole page, but as I say it was a learning curve & today I learnt a very important lesson, I started this layout last night & left it on the desk in my Stamping studio, which is the same place I dry my hair.
Well you can imagine the rest ........... I managed to blow my whole layout away before I had stuck it all together.

The petals are Stampin up Pick a Petal stamped on Yoyo Yellow card with Pink Passion ink. The Chipboard flower is also stampin up & is triple embossed adding a layer of colour each time, the two colours used are Yoyo Yellow & Only Orange.
The paper is by Sassy Frass lass and really lends itself to one of my favourite photo's.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
