Just a quick share

The new Catalogue and all it's loveliness is LIVE.
I'm away for the weekend scrapping so I will do the kinky thing when I'm home on wifi.
Project life is a big focus for me this weekend it has solved one of my greatest dilemmas - scrapping multiple photos of the one event! 
I have 'kits' of stuff made up that are  years old and I wonder what I was thinking when I put them together but hay I hate waste so it has been interesting. I have incorporated my love for Stampin Up into these pages and challenged my thinking (a lot) 

Want to see some? 

It's important to note this child is about to celebrate her 10th birthday! I used the SU Georgeous Grunge stamp set, Amazing Birthday and our tag topper punch. 
We had about 20 kids not including siblings at this party so you can imagine the photos - that's where the SU  Project Life came into play. 

Everyone made a huge effort to come dressed up and Project Life has let me exhibit that.

New Occasion Catalogue

2 weeks to go - 2 weeks left of the Big Shot bundle specials how exciting.

I have my hot little hands on the new Occasions Catalogue full of yummy Christmas sweetness. Pre order was a challenge - I didn't know where to start there is way to much to choose from. I was so excited then the box arrived I have touched it all and mounted my stamps onto the wood and that is all I have had time to do. 
The new Project Life kit is beautiful and I can see many a page coming out featuring those cards. I am headed away on a retreat at the end of the month and that's one of the goodies I am taking with me. 

Another thing I have done - well I got to play with the Brother Scan N Cut - it was here for 24hrs and part of that I had to work and sleep (dreadfully inconvenient). It took me a while to figure out what I was doing but found a great tutorial that made it very easy. I had it playing on my iPad beside me and I did the project at the same time. 

The 'Family' is built into the machine and the Birthday Party I did as per the tute with the built in fonts. 

Happy crafting people - till next time - pop on over to my shop and don't forget to check out the weekly deals when you are there. 

Finishing up on Tuesday night are these great goodies at 25% off.

I love the little purse - it holds a small chocolate perfectly and looks great for any occasion but especially great on wedding tables as a cute package gift for the ladies.

Project Life and Stampin Up.

There's been lots happening here with big seeing orders and huge kids assignments. I can say I have learnt heaps but it has taken time. 
Project Life has come to Stampin Up and yep I am more than a little excited about it. I love to traditional scrapbook and have even been having fun with digital scrapping on MDS but wow there is some serious satisfaction happening here. 
Page 1 -all great photos of my 3 little treasures but not ones I would scrap individually because, hay, well I just don't have all the time in the world to do it. 
Let me list the things I love about SU Project Life in particular - the PL kits match all our other great stuff like the colours (and yes this is a big deal trust me) the stamps compliment the occasions - did I mention the colours? The colours used in the PL kits are exactly the same as our colour families so mounting photos -which I love to do, is easy. 
Page 2 - I have backed them to keep them together as I am scrapping all over the place, no consecutive dates for me. I have been working on a 2 page spread though as wow I took so many photos at my daughters 5th birthday all those years ago it's now 5 pages long.
Page one a traditional page like I love to do - I used some of the PL cards to embellish and add colour to this otherwise pink (Strawberry Slush) page. We had a Barnyard bash all because Miss M wanted to wear her cow dress!
Page 1 - the others are not finished but will feature soon.
