Moments Like These - To Kill A Mockingbird - Sneak Peek Time!

This year I have been fortunate enough to see some wonderful theatre, and one show I saw was an amazing stage adaptation of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.  I have loved the book since I first read it as a teenager and was fascinated to see how it would come together on stage.

I loved it and if you get a chance to go and see it while it is still on tour I would encourage you to do so.  You can find the details here.  I totally fell in love with Atticus Finch!  I am on a bit of a mission to get the shows I have seen into my scrapbooks and this is a fun one to start with.  I want the tickets to feature on the pages I make and since they are not necessarily archival safe using Project Life by Stampin' Up! Pocket Pages is ideal.

Don't you just love the card I have used for the other pockets?  They are fantastic and so easy to use - and in just 10 days time you will be able to get your hands on them - yes they are from the New Stampin' Up! Catalogue and are from a set called Moments Like These.  I have also used some elements from the coordinating accessory pack.

How to Colour With the Stampin' Up! Blender Pens

Since I posted this card on Wednesday I have had a number of questions about how I coloured the beautiful flowers from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set.

Hello Card Featuring Six Sided Sampler Stamps from Stampin' Up!

Today I am going to share the cards I made for the Stampin' Up! Training in Telford last weekend.  At every training event we each make a bunch of cards to swap, it's a great way to get to know other people and to get loads of new ideas.

The cards I swapped were actually the second batch I made - the first had a bit of an accident when I invented a new and rather sticky Stampin' Up! Colour christened Reckless Ribena by my lovely team.  For those outside the UK Ribena is a blackcurrant drink and let me tell you it did nothing for my swaps!

The ones I did share had a watercolour background made with Pool Party and Old Olive and then stamped with Pool Party using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamps.  The hexagons from Six Sided Sampler were stamped in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.  The butterfly is from the adorable Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  It sits on a Silver Glimmer Paper Butterfly.

Stylish Everything Eleanor Invitation

Recently I have been designing wedding invitaion samples for brides to be who want to make their own invites.  The card I am showing you today was inspired by a Pinterest Board one such bride shared with me.  This is not the design she has chosen so I can share it with you now :-)
This stylish Everything Eleanor Invitation would be great for a wedding or a party - check it out here
The elegant swirls are from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set.  I have used Shimmery White Card along with Pool Party and Blackberry Bliss.  
The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts and has been punched out with the Word Window Punch and then layered with the Modern Label Punch (which has just retired and is no longer available).

How Many Butterflies Can You Fit On One Card?

You can never have too many butterflies and this card certainly has it's share!  
So many butterflies - pretty butterfly card by Bekka Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator - check it out here
The biggest butterfly was made with the Butterfly Thinlit Die and sits on a circle punched from Silver Fancy Foil Vellum.

The background was made by punching out the Elegant Butterfly Punch and then using it as a stencil.  I have used very little ink on my sponge dauber to get the almost translucent effect.

3 Things I am Loving About Being With Stampin' Up! Today

OK so if you are a regular reader you will probably know that I love being part of Stampin' Up! UK and as I thought about what to share with you today it occurred to me that as I sit here right now there are three things that I am really excited about and which are just part of what I love about being with Stampin' Up!

Firstly, I am spending this weekend with some of the wonderful people in my team and about 300 others from all over the UK.  I can't wait to see everyone and to catch up with them all.  I predict a lot of laughter and a lot of hugs.  We will also get to try some products which are not yet available to buy and get some fantastic training. 
Three Reasons I love being with Stampin' Up! today - see them here and then join me!
I have been getting these gifts ready for my team.

That kinda leads onto the second reason - we have a new catalogue launching on 2 June and another of the exclusive benefits of being with Stampin' Up! is we get to see them first and some of them are even on my desk.  You are going to love them and if you want them now just get in touch!

The third thing that I am excited about is that next month I am going to Maderia for a holiday that Stampin' Up! are paying for!  My travel pack has literally just arrived and I can't wait.  I love that anyone who is with Stampin' Up! has the chance to earn a holiday and would love for you to join me on the next one.
