Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem SBTD Blog Hop - Stampers Choice.


Welcome to the stampers choice blog hop for our Stampers by The dozen group. This month we are getting to pick our own theme. I am loving all the goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue but needed a Christmas card for a class that was current - so the Annual Catalogue selection was where i headed and Night of Bethlehem became my choice. If you have started the hop from one of my friends blog then welcome the last stop was Trish.



I'm really happy with how this card came up and my friends loved it. For some of them it was the first time they had used the Stamparatus. We made a mask for the Mary and Joseph then everyone used that mask to add ink to their cut outs.

Thank you for visiting me this month - Christmas is fast approaching so my plan is to share more Christmas goodies - as they say 'watch this space'! Now lets pop on over to Tashana's Blog and check out what she has chosen to share.

Scrapbooking Global August Blog Hop Memories and More School Days


Welcome to our Scrapbooking global August Blog Hop. 
This month we have a Memories & More theme happening - but wait there's more - a secondary theme of School Days. I picked this theme as I have a plethora of school photos needing to get out of packets and into albums. For this hop we have 18 Scrapbooking Global members hopping with us. If you have joined me from Sara's blog please continue the hop using the next button at the bottom of my page.



So this is page one of a 2 page spread of my eldest daughters graduation day at school - In Australia we have Primary then High school, High school goes years 7-12 after that they can go into the big wild world get a full time job or choose to further their studies in an area they choose. 

   


I found some sayings I liked off the internet tweaked them to be all fancy with a design program I have and then printed them on Whisper White cardstock. I frequently make my own cards this way as it extends my options. The stack of books are from the Hand Delivered Host set coloured with Stampin' Blends. The photo below is her year advisor - the teacher allocated to what was her year 7 class that then follows them through to year 12 as a support person as well as a teacher. 



What would school be without our friends - it is well known that some of these friendships will last a lifetime. Yes there is a blank Memories & More card there - that is for my daughter to add her friends names to once I had shared my page here. There is a pun included on this page as my daughters 2 best friends have the last name Clover - yes they are twins and they look nothing alike. I traced the school emblem onto Whisper White then fussy cut it for one of the slots and the 2 spares I added some DSP to for some 'texture'.

Here are the jpegs of the sayings for you.


      


So thank you for stopping by hopefully I have helped inspire you to get your school photos into an album or 2. Please continue on our hop and visit Sue in the UK by clicking the next button below.

Love What You Do Stampin' Up! Birthday Card.

Let the Designer Series Paper (DSP) do the work for you.
So many pretty choices - the specialty DSP has a little extra something in each packet. The Share What You love Specialty Designer has a really pretty pearl look on one side to compliment its design.


 
This card can be repeated with a whole packet of Designer Series Paper and you will get *cough*cough* 120 cards! - if you cut the DSP 2.3" x 5.3" or 6 x 13.5cm you will get 10 pieces per sheet of 12" x 12" DSP. Oh and there will be bits left over.
 

I created this sketch as a guide for the card I made then repeated it with one of the other pieces of DSP in the packet.


 
I pulled out the Blender Pens to give this effect on the envelope and card inside.
Happy Stamping and creating till next time.
