2013 Stampin' Up! Christmas Extravaganza......

Hello Again,
For this year's Christmas Extravaganza, I decided to use all of our lovely Kraft Gift Boxes.  Everything used in the Classes are all Stampin' up! Except the Bottle of Wine, which I am totally amazed that it was still in the box when I got home after two All Day Events......
We made three projects as usual.  I also changed the colour combination for this year. Instead of Red's and Greens, I went with Blues and Silver.
We used the Window box to make a set of cards and the matching box, which are ideal for jewellery items.  Six cards and envelopes fit into the Window Box.  They are already pre stamped with the pretty white image.
Next we used the Tag a Gift Box to decorate and I made a matching Gift Card Holder.  The choice was the ladies whether they wanted to make the gift box horizontal or turn it into a Small Wine Bottle Cover.

The third project was one of our Very Large 6" Square Kraft Gift Boxes using the Festive Flurry stamp set and framelits to decorate it.
You can find all these Kraft Gift Boxes online, there is also a special on until 30th November if you have a look.

These are all the three projects.  Instructions are available on the right hand side, if you want to play along.

I used the very popular Santa's List for the gift bags and Welcome Packs.

Using the Seasons of Style papers.
This is my lovely, lovely MUM - Sue.  She is my very best friend.  She helps me in so many ways and I wouldn't be able to do it with out her wonderful help. My Mum's Mum passed away at the beginning of October - Nanny Vera, so I am even more grateful for my Mum. 
I went back to Red's and Green's for the Table decorations.  I decorated candles this year with the Poinsetta stamp set.  Lots of work but I don't mind cutting out.

This is Debi.  She is one of my Downline with a hint of Val next to her, sorry for cutting you in half Val!
Debi was so pleased that she made her own bread for her lunch.  Super.
Thank you all so very much for coming along to my Broadstone and Yeovil Extravaganza's this year.
The next ones are 1st March Broadstone and 8th March Yeovil.
Booking is NOW OPEN.  Its a first come first Basis.
Email me to book your place, Closing date 1st February.

Finally the sun came out this morning to take some photo's of this weeks stamp class.
We used the Too Kind stamp set for weeks stamp class.  I went with a couple of colour combination either Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride with the Basic Grey and Smoky Slate.

The other colour combination is Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant with the Basic Grey and Smoky Slate.

I had to disturb Sid from HIS! Conservatory where I take my photo's.  He just would NOT move, what a cheek.....So I placed my cover over him and still he wouldn't move.
Just look at him!  He doesn't actually have all his hair now he went to the hairdressers this afternoon.

September Scrapbook Club....

For this month's Scrapbook Club, I went for a Thankful Theme using Autumn colours.
The colour combination is Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.
The stamp sets used are Gently Falling, Morning Meadow and Flower Shop, with the papers from Sweater Weather.
We have lots of veggies to be Thankful this year, especially after last years wet weather.  The huge sacks we got from the Incentive trip with our pillow gifts on, are perfect for storing our onions.

The weather really helped them dry out super this year.
We have so many squashes this year as well.  I will take a photo of the actual plants but for now this was just one picking.  The back one is a Spaghetti Squash, see the photo's below.  The orange ones are called Uchiki Kuri and they make lovely chips!  Yes just scoop out the inner seeds, slice the huge squash skin and all and roast, WOW! the chips were light and fluffy, like sweet potatoes.
Funny the flowers on squash plants were like mini Hotels for Bees.  We go up to water the allotment most nights and inside the huge yellow flowers, are tons of bumble bees, asleep inside the flower heads, so cute.  They come out all over the place with yellow trouser like legs! from the pollen.
The marrow is just one of many, we make chutney and brown sauce with them.  Or give them to our sister for her chickens as they apparently love to peck at them.
This is what the spaghetti squash looked like when I cut it in half, which was a hard job!
The half on the left has the seeds scooped out, the one on the right is what it looks like before.

You bake the halves in the oven upside down.
The one on the left is what it looks like after I forked the sides away to reveal the spaghetti style flesh of the squash.

You can see it clearer here.  Not sure what to have it with for tea, but it certainly tasted nice on its own.
Hope I haven't bored you with our allotment tales, but it certainly is one thing to be Thankful for, as we really worked hard there this Summer.
Thanks for looking,

Thank You...

My Hubbie and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary yesterday.  We flew to Jersey for the day which was very nice, except it rained all day, but still we had a lovely day out.  We went to the Wildlife Park there and had a meal out.  It was very windy  and wondered whether we would actually get home but it was fine, back home in time to watch most of Bake OFF!!!! hee hee

Four of my class ladies made us these gorgeous cards,
Thank you Linda, Jean, Sue and Sara, they are all super.

Summer 2013 Extravaganza Projects.....

Hello Everyone,
I totally forgot to show you the projects for my Summer 2013 Extravaganza. 
It was just before I went on the Incentive Trip, so it was a bit of a rush but here you go these are the three projects we made, using the Lacy & Lovely with the Papillon Potpourri stamp sets and the Male project used the Clockworks stamp set with Bring on the Cake.
The notelets fit in one of the Tins from Tinware Direct.  This was Project 2.

I used Primrose Petals, Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party colour combination.

Such a pretty stamp set and looks lovely and soft in these three colours.

The male project was a request for my Yeovil Ladies.  I used the clockwork stamp set in Island indigo, pumpkin pie and pool party colour combination. 
We made this chocolate slide box Card and a matching gift card holder.

The last project was a Envelope Birthday Organiser.

It has 12 sections each holding inserts ready for you to make a note of the Birthday of the year to remember.  Organisation is the Key!

The Organiser opens up concertina style to reveal the inserts.
The instructions include all three projects and the inserts for the Birthday Organiser.
