Autumn Project Life Scrapbook Pages.....

We went for an Autumn Theme this month for my Scrapbook Club.

I've decided to use a mixture of Page Protectors for my Scrapbook Club spreads, as I love the Project Life very easy system but we do love to use the 12 x 12 plain pockets as well.

All the photo layouts for this month are 6 x 4 areas.

I used For all Things and Truly Grateful Stamp Sets.  The colour combination was Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Crazy Cajun, Soft Suede, Blackberry Bliss.

The title was Autumn, haven't the leaves been fantastic this year.  They've fallen earlier this year compared to last year.  We've had 46 butternut squashes from just 5 plants this year from out Allotment.  Perfect photo's for my pages.

The itty bitty flower punch was used to add a pretty embellishment.

The stamps in the For all Things stamp set, stamp so lovely with lots of texture.  The wooden leaves were added with some linen thread.

The wonderful wreath stamp set was also used for the right hand side.  This is a plain 12 x 12 pocket but I started off with a 12 x 12 old olive layer and then added three 6 x 4 layers for a look like the other project life pockets.

The corner layers are for lots of journalling.

It's my Scrapbook Club next Wednesday if anyone fancies have ago?

Wednesday morning at 9.30am or Wednesday evening at 7pm.

Thanks for looking,

Flower Shop 50th Birthday

Morning Everyone,

I made this large A5 card for my downline Maria last week who was celebrating her 50th Birthday. I know she loves the flower shop stamp set, so I went with that.  Nice and cheery.

I chose the Deco Label framelits for the middle section and the numbers were cut with the red glitter card.  The leaves are from the bird punch.

This is the inside.

I think I will make Sid a card to cheer him up.

We're all missing Robert so very much, but looking forward to hearing all his news this afternoon when he's meant to be phoning home.

Thanks for looking,

My Stampin' UP! Craft Room.....

Morning Everyone,

Right then back today after another busy week of sorting out stuff for Robert who's off to University on Friday.  Just the food shopping to do on Thursday!  Ironing and Washing lessons all done....Lots of things to do that MUM normally does behind the scenes are now showing up! hee hee  Bless them.

Here are the photo's that I promised that I would show you, the main reason why I have been so busy this Summer.  We used to have a little potting shed at the end of our Garage, which kept needing replacing, so I asked VERY NICELY if I could have the place instead of putting another shed up!

My Lovely HUBBIE of 26 Years TOMORROW, Happy Anniversary Roy!  

He Said Yes to me adding the area to the end of my Craft Room.  It's only 2m long by 1m deep, but what a difference that small area has made for me.  It's like having an open cupboard really, but it does show you have if you only have a tiny area in your home, you could fit enough in there to have a Craft Room.  Put your thinking caps on if this is you.....

All my cupboards are WALL cupboards from B&Q, even the ones sitting on the floor as they are only 300mm deep, which is perfect for the size I was used to.  They are white gloss slab doors.

This is the view at the end where I sit during class times.

The other end of the garage has the display area, which has also been changed.  I used to have a tall cupboard to the ceiling, but I swapped it for a shelf and cupboard to display all my creations.

Bigshot Classes...

Spring Extravaganza Projects.

Card Chests with Class Projects.

Scrapbooking and Bigshot Classes.

The other side has my Tea and Coffee area, more samples.

I have three notice boards with tiny shelves above from Ikea.

More samples with New In Colours.

So back to the other end of the Craft Room.

This is my Cardstock area, Punches, and stuff I need during classes.

Embossing Powders, rhinestones & pearls plus baker twine on the top shelf.
Blendabilities, Stamping Write Markers, Washi Tape on the middle shelf.
My pens, calculator, personal name stamps and Appreciation Gifts on the bottom shelf.

Appreciation Gifts for orders, joining clubs, bringing along new members etc for my ladies.

I made a New Banner using the Celebrate Kit and the Flower Frenzy.

I made some shelves for my stamp sets.

So behind the gap in the New additional area on the left, I have a double cupboard.
Then the pen, marker, ink pad holder from Stamp n Storage.  This was Mary Fish's fault as I loved her room with it in.  It was quite expensive as its shipped for the USA.  I added a shelf to the top to display my baskets for projects.

The worktop goes all around the new area, its only 45cm deep but perfect area for stamping and leaving out stuff!

The cupboard holds all my gift bags, note boards and boxes ready for decorating.

 I found the perfect stool in B&Q again for £27 and the drawer units on the curver plastic weaved ones.  They hold lots of bits and bobs! The grid paper is perfect for stamping on, I go through tons of these pads!

The cupboard under the worktop on the left holds my designer papers, which I kept in the stamp n storage cupboards, which fitted inside the cupboards by chance.

I fitted two of them inside with a tiny gap between them for stuff!  I have to pull out the drawer unit to get to the other side, but that's not a problem.

The other side is a repeat of the left hand side.  I sort all my ribbons in the 3.5" drawers in the other two stamp n storage units.  Plus I have all my Scrapbooks behind the other door, ready for finishing.

The cupboard above has my envelopes, stationery and Project Life stuff.

Back to the Right hand side as you come in the top door is my Bigshot Area and my ink pads I use in class.

The cupboard above has all my spare glues, tapes and stuff!

The shelf holds my tapes, glues, dimensionals for class, plus some in colour ink pads that wouldn't fit in the stand.

The cupboards on the floor open like this and all my lovely Bigshot dies and embossing folders are here.  The little mats are from Dunelm Mills, they are dinner place mats in felt.

My cupboard on the end holds all my clear blocks and clear bags for classes.

Hope I have given you some inspiration of how to get a Craft Room if you only have a tiny place.

I will be back to regular daily crafting from next Monday.

Thanks for looking,
Jenny :-)xx

For All Things Stamp Class......

Morning Everyone,

Autumn feels like its on its way doesn't it?  I've taken over the morning dog walk as Robert will soon be leaving for Uni and it was his job in the mornings.  I took Sid on a different round yesterday and he was NOT Happy......He took me for a walk this morning - BOY! is he a lazy dog in the mornings.

I cracked open my Autumn Catalogue order yesterday and decided to play with the For All Things stamp set and the gorgeous Color Me Autumn Designer Paper.  Loved the colour combination of Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss.

We're decorating a large notebook using all the products.  The initial is from the  Epic Alphabet stamp set.  I used sahara sand with one of the images underneath the letter.  It was punched out with the 2" circle punch which fits perfectly under the large scallop circle.

There are matching wooden leaf shapes in the Autumn Catalogue, which got go well with the leaves in the stamp set.

The images stamp with a textured look, lots of tiny dots.  I do like these sorts of stamp sets.  I remember an old hostess set from our very first catalogue that had this textured look.

I used the New Kraft Notelets for the cards and matching envelopes.

This card has the new Fun Frames embossing folders, I cut the shape out by hand after running it through my bigshot.

The background image is the same on the notebook stamped in sahara sand.  The tiny flowers are from the new trio of punches.

This is the other Fun Frame, I also cut this out by hand after running it through the bigshot to emboss.

A few pearls were added and they are done.

I'll be back with the photo's of my Craft Room later today.
