Scrapbook Saturday - Giving the Gift of Scrapbooking is easy with Project Life by Stampin' Up!

I love Scrapbooking, I love the pleasure the finished albums give people and I love to give albums as gifts - but when I do I worry about giving someone a big project to do if I don't include photos or missing things about the story if I complete the album for them.  Well today I am going to share the latest Album I have given - and I am excited about it as I think it resolves both my concerns!
I put together this Project Life by Stampin' Up! Album for a friends birthday - they have recently come back from a rather exciting trip around Italy with lots of fun stories and great photos (and an incredible number of selfies!)  As you will see I have put the album together so all they have to do is slip the photos into the pockets and write on the cards.  Everything is very easy to do or to change around and I hope that they have a lot of fun doing it.

You can see the whole album and find out about the random bolt on the picture in this video...

Who do you know who would love an album they just have to slip photos into?  Wouldn't it make a great gift?

Find Out About Friday - How to get the Gorgeous Good Greetings Stamp Set for Free from Stampin' Up! UK

So yesterday I shared the amazing new Autumn Winter Catalogue from Stampin' Up! UK and if you are anything like me you started to read it thinking that you would not want any more Christmas Stamps!  I found that resolve went out of the window by about page 2 ... If you found that as well how about I tell you how you can get a totally free stamp set and a selection of the goodies of your choice?
Sound good?

Well between now and 31 October when you host for me you could do just that!  All you have to do is get a group of friends together, decide which of the options below would work best for you, we will agree a date and I will do the rest!

You and your friends could have a private Christmas Card Class - you will make 4 different Christmas Cards each.  This option costs £10 per person or is free for each person who places a qualifying order - and for getting your friends together you get all the benefits of being a hostess - including the free stamp set.  You can choose to host at your house or mine so you might not even have to do the cleaning!

The second option is that you and your friends could see a demonstration of the products, make a little something and then shop to your heart's content.  Again I am happy for you to host at your place or mine

The third option is great if you are your friends do not live near each other - you could have a virtual catalogue party.  I will provide all the materials you need and we will all agree to meet up on line.  I will be on hand to show the product and answer any questions you have, while your guests can shop and have their goodies delivered straight to them.

You can click here to see the gorgeous free stamp set.

Just email bekka@feeling-crafty.co.uk to get your party started

MDS Monday - My Friends Rock at Rock of Ages

I am fortunate enough to have an amazing and diverse group of friends and last week some of them joined me on a birthday trip to see the musical Rock of Ages in Milton Keynes.  It was a fantastic night which I really enjoyed.  As well as the show we met with some of the production team and cast and had a back stage tour.  What a wonderful and memorable birthday.

Bright Summer Silhouettes Card, great for any Occasion

Today I am going to share one of the cards we made at this month's Card Making Class which featured the lovely Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set.  This bright summery card would be great for a number of occasions.
Bright Summer Silhouettes Card, great for any Occasion
The images from the Summer Silhouettes Stamps are stamped onto some of the wonderful Typeset Papers using Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow Inks.  This piece was then embossed using the Honeyomb Embossing Folder as was the Melon Mambo Layer.  Once embossed the stamped layer was gently inked using Crumb Cake Ink.  The Rich Razzleberry Butterflies were cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the sparkly one was punched using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  It is made with some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper sponged with some Melon Mambo Ink.  This large butterfly sits on some of the lovely Mossy Meadow Stitched Ribbon.

Scrapbook Saturday - Another Project Life Page about the House Rennovations

With much of my craft stuff packed away while the house is renovated, traditional scrapbooking has rather taken a back seat in favour of the ease and convenience of using Project Life by Stampin' Up!  Today I am going to share another page about the house renovations!  I have lots of other photos I want to scrap too but they are going to have to wait until after the work is done.
Project Life By Stampin' Up! recording my house renovations
I have used the Everyday Adventure Cards and Accessories for this page - I can't believe how much you get in thee kits, I have made well over 20 pages and I still have loads left!  
Project Life By Stampin' Up! recording my house renovations
You can see the full range of Project Life by Stampin' Up! products here. I have added swatches of the paints used in the bedroom to this page - since they will not touch any photos I don't need to worry if the paint is archive safe or not!
