Bright and Beautiful inspiration

I Christmas is coming so I have started planning my cards and what better stamp set is there for the Australian non snow Christmas than Bright and Beautiful. A few of my customers had bought the Bigshot and bundle set so that also helped my decision with where to start. 
Teamed with the star framelits this set makes for such lovely Christmas cards but as usual I like things to be versatile so birthday cards with the bundle were also a must.

This card uses - 
Cardstock Real Red, Whisper White card
Ink Real Red
Stamp Set Bright and Beautiful
Trim 5/8" organza ribbon
Tools trimmer

This card uses - 
Cardstock Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White card
Ink Real Red, Old Olive
Stamp Set Bright and Beautiful
Trim Burlap ribbon, frosted sequins
Tools trimmer, star framelits, small star punch

This card uses - 
Cardstock Night of Navy, Whisper White card, Silver Glimmer paper
Ink Night of Navy pad and pen
Stamp Set Bright and Beautiful
Tools trimmer, star Framelits, little star punch, star mask

Project Life scrap night

A team meeting, nibbles and Project Life! What fun I had - with thousands (sadly not exaggerating this time) of photos from our trip to Finland Christmas 2012 the hardest bit was culling them, down to 5 double sided pages.
I got 1 finished last night or 2 if you count both sides 😉 

Using the new card fillers from the Stampin Up supplement brochure this page shows a few of the activities on Christmas Day. The Lost Lagoon colour went perfectly with the ice.

I also like to make my own card fillers using our Cardstock, embellishments and stamps. The new letter  die is the perfect size.

What a Star!

A little while back Stampin Up ran a promotion with the Big Shot and bundles.
I know some of my customers took advantage of this great opportunity and I also know some of those Big Shots are still in the box! 
Well pull them out and get started. 
The Star Framelits were bundled with Bright & Beautiful knowing that all my ladies got this set bar 1 I thought that would be a great place to start.

Just using the framelits, the 2 smallest and the small star punch here is 2 very easy Birthday or Celebration cards.
