Using My Digital Studio with Project Life by Stampin' Up!

I am loving Project Life by Stampin' Up! and I can't wait to get my photos of the show we are doing back from the printers.  When I sent them off I also sent a few MDS pages which are going to be inserts in Project Life Pages about the show and today I thought I would share those with you.
Using My Digital Studio with Project Life by Stampin' Up! Check out how here
The photos are all black and white so this first card adds some colour to the background.

Moonlight Paper Stack Birthday Card with Hexagons

Today I am going to share a birthday card which features some of the gorgeous papers from the Moonlight Paper Stack from Stampin' Up!  I love the bold colours and how they are great for just about any project!  The card I am sharing today makes a great birthday card for a man.
Moonlight Paper Stack Birthday Card with Hexagons - check out this blog for lots of great ideas
I have punched out the Moonlight Papers with my trusty Hexagon Punch and layered them onto a background Stamped with the Hardwood Stamp.  I stamped the birthday greeting from the Tag Talk Stamp twice, one I punched out with the Label Bracket Punch and the other I cut the central part of the greeting by hand and raised it up. The greeting sits on top of a circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper which I have coloured with Blackberry Bliss Ink.

Scrapbook Saturday - Table Manners by Alan Ayckbourn

Last night was the opening night of our production of Table Manners by Alan Ayckbourn.  The cast did a wonderful job - they have been making me laugh since the fist audition, both on and off stage, and last night it was wonderful to hear the first audience laughter.
Table Manners Digital Scrapbook Page check out this blog for more ideas
I made this page using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! The background is the publicity image we have been using for the show.

Find Out About Friday - The Top 5 Things I Love about Stampin' Up!

Something I get asked about a lot is what I love about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - well the rather flippant answer I often want to give is 'what is not to love?', but for this week's Find Out About Friday I thought I would go into a little more detail and share what for me are the Top 5 things I love.  In no particular order they are:
5 Things I love about Stampin' Up! UK
1. The Products - the range, the coordination, and the quality are all fantastic - there is always a great product to suit what ever creative mood I am in and I know that it will work well with the other products that I have - and that is before we start on the wonderful colours and how they carry across the whole range.  Seriously if you have never checked out the products click here and if you want to try some before you buy why not get in touch and we can arrange to get together and craft either at a class or a demonstration

2. The People - since joining Stampin' Up! I have met some amazing and inspiring people and now am lucky enough to call them my friends.  And I know many of these friends are going to be friends for life  I love getting together with them all - as well as crafting together (most times) we always laugh and have fun!  They come from all sorts of places, backgrounds and ages and are united by the love of pretty paper and stamping.

3. The Flexibility - Stampin' Up! is a wonderful business, I get to set my own schedule and work it around the other commitments in my life.  All of us have busy lives (and while we are on the subject how did it get to be late September!) so having a business which can fit around all the less flexible things is a real bonus for me

4. The Rewards and Recognition.  I suspect that I am not the only crafter who has looked for a way to make their hobby cheaper or who wants to get paid for doing what they love!  With Stampin' Up! as well as the chance to earn money, anyone can earn free products (the best price) as well as luxuary holidays.  Stampin' Up! and the people in the business are great at recognising achievements and those personal things too.  I have learned so much with my business, which has had a positive impact in all areas of my life and I am certainly a better crafter than when I started!

5. Guilt Free Crafting - well since it is something I get paid for I can craft  without feeling guilty about it!  What more could a paper lover want!

If you would like to know more about joining what I think is the best Crafting Club there is, about what is involved (mostly having fun!) then please do get in touch - bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk and we can start to find out what your personal Top 5 Things to love about Stampin' Up! are.

Thursday Thank You Treats

As those of you who follow me on Facebook or Instagram will know I have been having a lot of building work done recently.  Colin the builder is almost finished and he as been doing a great job, so as he left for a well earned holiday I wanted to say Thank You and decided to do so with some sweets for him and his wife to enjoy on their flight.
Thank You Treat Bag for someone who loves to travel - check out the details here
I popped the sweets into a Cafe Gift Bag which I stamped with travel images from the Around the World Stamp Set.  I then added a banner made with the All Is Calm Speciality Designer Papers, some of the coordinating All Is Calm Washi Tape and the Thanks from the Happy Hooray Stamp Set.  I have also used my Confetti Star Punch, Label Bracket Punch and Fun Flower Punch.

I hope they have a wonderful holiday.  Who would you like to say Thank You to today?

Birthday Card featuring the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Lots of people tell me that they find it hard to make cards for guys so today I am going to share a fun birthday card with you that would be great for any of the men in your life, using a stamp set I am struggling to put down - Kinda Eclectic from Stampin' Up!  It is such a great set and I am really enjoying stamping with it!
Birthday Card featuring the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Lots of great ideas on this blog
The card has a Crumb Cake Background with a Pool Party Layer.  I have used the Dots and Stripes Mask to give my Whisper White Layer a pattern for my stamping to sit on.  The stamping is in Pool Party, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Island Indigo.  The birthday greeting is from the Something to Say Stamp Set and has been cut out using the Bitty Banner Framelits.

I hope this has inspired you to grab your stamps and make some cards that the men in your life would love to receive
