Christmas Extravaganza Day

Hello Everyone.
It's been ages since my last post but I have been busy getting ready for another All Day Event - This time All About Christmas. Also we did pop to Cornwall for a long weekend in a Log Cabin - Fab. So Sorry for the lack of posts.

We had a busy day full of crafting yesterday. All my ladies worked so very hard and I think they went home to have a lie down!!! Thank you all so much for coming along.

We made two projects in the Morning and One in the afternoon.

This is Project 1. All based on the Contempo Christmas stamp set. We made two cards and a matching Gift Bag, using the Christmas Jingle Scrappin Papers.

The Christmas Tree set...

The Ornament Set.....

This is Project 2. A lovely Gift box complete with 12 Christmas Gift Tags.

The stamp set is Serene Snowflakes with a hint of Old Dasher!!!!

In the Afternoon we made a Christmas Jingle Scrapbook in a Tin...
There were two versions, all using the Christmas Jingle Scrappin Kits.

Inside is decorated as well with a space for a photo in the lid.

This is the album that fitted inside. The Tree Trimmings Version.

This is the album fully opened up with lots a places to add photo's, journalling etc. It has two hidden pockets for more journalling and photo's etc.

This is the Dasher Version.

This is the inside of the Dasher Album.

I have done all Project Instructions for all three projects. They will be available to purchase from Tomorrow. I am off to the allotment today to help spread two truck loads of MUCK!!!! My hubbie didn't manage to finish moving it - Better than the ironing pile I suppose hee hee.....
This is the hall with all the tables dressed and ready.

These are all the welcome packs, one for each lady.

These are the Raffle Prizes, Congratulations to all the Winners.

We had Prize Patrol again. These are all the little Gift Bags, they are all the New IN Colours....

And the rest of them.

These are the table decorations for all the ladies,

The tables set with the projects. Contempo Christmas Project

The Serene Snowflake Project.

This was my demonstration station for demonstrating how to make each album.
This is my Lovely Auntie Hazel. She was so helpful. She is also a Stampin UP Demonstrator and is such a Creative Lady, must have some of her genes!!!
This is my Wonderful, Fantastic, Beautiful MUM. She is such a lovely lady and I LOVE her with all my heart. She is a very hard worker and I would not be able to half of what I do without MY MUM. Thank YOU MUM.......
There were cakes left and I was robbed when I got home by three hungry BOYS!!!! Plus Sid UMM! They had been having a MAN DAY! hee hee

Thank You to all the Ladies for coming along and supporting me.

Right lots to do next week as We are OFF to Stampin UP Convention which is in LONDON this time. Safe Journeys to all coming from Germany and France - See you there!!!

Delightful Decorations......

More samples! I did tell you, I was having trouble putting this stamp set away. I made these two framed 3D pictures with the Delightful Decorations stamp set. I love the samples in the New Catalogue and liked the look of the scrapbooking page on P.26. I thought that it would look nice in a deep frame.

These are 8" x 8" sized frame. They are hard to photograph though as the glass picks up the reflections of everything, ie the roof of my conservatory.

The next one is again in Marina Mist, another whole pack of that colour gone!

Can you see the bow in the middle, its the new 1/8" Taffeta ribbon. It is fantastic for tying bows, so easy, plus it has the added bonus of producing a flat knot as well!

Thanks for looking,

Delightful Decorations - More Samples.....

I am loving the combination of Cherry Chobbler and Old Olive. They are so rich together. The stamp set is Delightful Decorations with the co-ordinating Ornament Punch. The papers are the Jolly Holiday designer papers pack.

I used the new scallop trim corner and border punches to make the little frame on the front.

We finally have sticky backed pearls and rhinestones. They are really good quality ones and look real!

The sentiment inside the card on the middle layer is from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.

The other colour combination is Perfect Plum and Marina Mist. OH MY! Marina Mist is gorgeous. I used the rhinestones on this card instead of pearls. The papers are from the Subtles paper stack! There are four designs and you get two sheets of each in each colour of the family. Its great to have co-ordinating paper in every colour now. We never had that before.

The 3/4" circle punch was used to punch out the snowflakes and the sentiment, layered onto a 1" circle punch on the first card. Again the sentiments on the front and middle are from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.
The scallop oval is layered onto the new Wide Oval punch.

There are still more to show but after my Delightful Decorations class tomorrow.

Delightful Decorations........

Hello All,

Isn't the weather glorious! All jobs done, Washing dry (horrid ironing pile though!)......

My New Goodies came on Friday, so I've been playing non-stop!!! This catalogue really is the best one yet!

Stampin' UP! are brilliant at co-ordinating stamp sets with punches. We are using the Delightful Decorations stamp set and the Ornament Punch on Tuesday.

I came up with this project. Its quite a large project, so we are splitting the class in two. The Gift box holds 6 cards and 16 matching tags.

I made one set in the new Cherry Chobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla with the co-ordinating papers in Jolly Holiday. It's really much easier making cards when all the elements co-ordinate LOVE IT!

You can see the Delightful Decorations inside here......

I decided to use Marina Mist, Perfect Plum and Whisper white for my other colourway.
The papers are from the Subtle paper pack! 40 Sheets of 12" x 12" double sided papers all for £15.50 Bargain....

This is the inside of the Gift Box......

I must admit, I have had trouble putting this stamp set down, so check back tomorrow for all the other cards, I've made so far!
You can play along, the instructions are on the right,

Ornate Flowers Stamp Class....

This is my Stamp Class using the Ornate Flower Stamp Set and Perfect Punches Stamp Set. The papers are Greenhouse Gala. I did it two colours ways as usual. You can find the stamp set on Page 54 of the catalogue.
The box opens up in the middle and folds out. The New 1/8" Marina Mist Ribbon holds it closed.
If you want to play along, the instructions are on the right.
