Bloomin' Buds Craft Weekend......

Hello Everyone!  Sorry for being missing in action!  I have had a busy couple of months preparing for our very first Bloomin Buds Crafting Weekend. 
It was amazing.  My Girls came from so very far from Lancashire, Ipswich and Dorset.  We try and meet up at Stampin' UP! Events and the above photo is way back in 2010 at the London Stampin UP Convention.  Well we decided to have a FULL Weekend of crafting and laughter.
So from Friday 9.30am to 12pm today, we came together and crafted.  A few ladies couldn't come for one reason or another but there were finally 11 of us.  We crafted like crazy!  We haven't had much sleep and my eyes might close by the time I finish typing!
We hired a venue and had a sleep over.  We had a huge table set up for crafting.  I made everyone these table gifts.  The papers are from the New Stampin UP Catalogue - THAT GOES LIVE TOMORROW!!!! They are called comfort cafe.  The little tub is full of snacks,  I did some sewing and made a coffee mug cozy and a decorated tin to hold business cards.
The notebooks were stamped with the Forever with you stamp set and the flap is a BIGZ die called Oval Accent Bigz and its a clear die.

I made three sets all matching.

Another one, the fabric is called Comfort cafe.

The crafting table and dinner table was decorated with these wonderful flower rosettes.
On Page 194 there is a project very similar to this.  Maria kindly had these turned wood made for our decorations and a month back while Maria was down for Training, we made the large rosettes.

This is one of the project the girls made.  I made this decorated Canvas for our Craft Room's.  The sentiment was given to me by Stampin' UP! as part of my gift's from Vienna Incentive Trip.

Sid missed me!  Then he found his favourite place in the conservatory, what a life!

I made this little Thank You Card for all the girls that came along, which I placed on the Dinner table.

We made lots of projects.  I will show you tomorrow as my eyes won't stay open any longer!
Thank you Bloomin' Buds for a lovely weekend.
Love Jenny x

Snowflake Soiree Stamp Class....

Hello Everyone.
Well I am working my way through the New Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue and for this week I used the Snowflake Soiree Stamp set.
I made my class in two colour combinations.  This one uses a new In colour called Midnight Muse.  You can order these now but they will be in the New Main Catalogue which goes live on the 1st October, but for now you can order all the cardstock, inkpads and reinkers.  I mixed it with Baja Breeze and Marina Mist.  The rosette on the front of the Mini Photo Album is the Snow Festival paper pack.
I also used the Greetings of the season stamp set.
For this colour combination I used Real Red, Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso.  The papers are the candlelight speciality paper pack.
I used the flocked window sheet down the edge of the Mini Photo Album for this version.
They have four double pages on the inside ready for all those wonderful christmas memories to cherish.
Thanks for looking,

Back to School Today.....


Morning Everyone,
Well its onto the next stage of growing up for my youngest.  He is off to the Sixth Form at Grammar today.  He hasn't been to school for a full day since 11th May as he had study leave for his exams, so I better get the cupboards stocked up today, as the first thing my two boys do when they come in is raid the cupboards!!! hee hee
I would have taken a photo of my eldest but he isn't even dressed yet!  He has a 10am start, as he is a year older!
Have you been watching the amazing Para Olympics?  It is truly the most amazing event ever.  I will tell you that I am always at the desk working and I got so excited watching the previous Olympics that the gas seemed to be escaping from my chair lift and went all over my carpet!  I did managed to get the mess cleaned up hee hee but when I came in from class last week my family had decorated my craft chair!

A little diddie card made with the Kidoodles stamp set.

I used the markers to colour in the image and punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch, layered onto the large scallop circle.

The Retired list is going fast so shout if I can help you with anything before its too late.
Thanks for looking,

Ornament Keepsakes Big shot Club....

Hello Everyone,
It was Big shot club last Thursday and we had a play with the New Ornament Keepsake Bundle! 
You can find the Ornament Keepsake Bundle at the beginning of the New Autumn/Winter Catalogue.  There are lots of Bundles in the New catalogue seasonal catalogue and if you buy the Ornament Keepsake Bundle of the stamp set and matching framelits to cut them out with the Bigshot then you save a massive 15% OFF.  Thank you Stampin' UP! 
I did use quite a few new products in the Bigshot Club and we did have such a fun evening UM!  I must apologise as I just couldn't keep my mitts off them.
The cards are all so very simple, easy enough to make a pile of them before Christmas comes around and if you run out of time, these would help as they really are so very quick to do.
I used one of the NEW Incolours called Midnight Muse.  You can order any of the Incolours inkpads, cardstock and the markers NOW if you fancy any of them.  I mixed it with Bashful Blue.

We have a new Snow Flurry Bigz die which gives you three snowflakes.
This is another set using Lucky Limeade, Real Red and Early Espresso.  The snowflakes were cut out of the Champagne Glitter paper and the candlelight papers.  This gift box uses A4 or 8 1/2" x 11" sized cardstock, you need two sheets.

For a much bigger box which uses 12" x 12" cardstock is a huge 6" box

OH MY! the candlelight Speciality paper pack has two sheets of flocked window sheets, I've used some of it for the top of this gift box.
Wish you could stroke this box!


Yes I did just HAVE to have a quick go at making one of the ornaments on the cover,
I used the Snow Flurry bigz die to decorate the centre and a new bronze button instead of a rosette pleated flower.


We went to the Dorchester County Show today.  There were lots of lovely animals there and also we saw about 30 Border terriers as well!  Sid only had eyes for Bacon Butties, Sausages and CHEESE!!!!!
Thanks for looking,
