Something for Baby


I hope you had a lovely weekend.

I have an Open House catalogue launch event coming up on Saturday, and me being me, am in what can only be termed a 'crisis management' situation....again! I do manage to get things together in the end though - thankfully! ;-)

I'm frantically making samples, and was hugely inspired by the ladies on the Inspiring Inkin' blog hop on Saturday, so at least I have loads of inspiration to keep me going.

I spent Saturday afternoon (the whole afternoon!...though I was doing the washing, cleaning and dusting as well lol) making this little gift box and matching card. There's a belly band around the box, which slides off so that the box can be opened.

I love the framelit dies which match the stamped images - it makes 'cutting' things out so much easier. You'll be able to order these from tomorrow. :-)

Supplies used:
Stamps - Something for Baby, Something to Say, Zoo Babies

Colours - Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, Night of Navy, Hello Honey, Marina Mist
Punches - Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Framelit Dies - Baby's First, Apothecary Accents
Misc - Lullaby DSP
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week.

Inspiring Inkin Annual Catalogue 2014-2015 Launch Blog Hop

Good morning,
Today I'm really excited to be joining in with the Inspiring Inkin' Blog Hop, where 17 members of the team are bringing you fantastic projects using products from the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue which goes live on 1st July 2014. Not long to wait now ;-)
You can join the hop anywhere in the chain and hop along to the next talented team member by clicking on the next person on the list. Aren't all the projects fantastic - I'll be CASEing for sure ;-)
As my first love is scrapbooking I had to do something based around that, so my project is a little mini book using the gorgeous new Lullaby Designer Series Paper (DSP) - 12 double sided sheets of 12" x 12" paper, which I don't think is ever done true justice until you see it IRL. I've lost count of the amount of times I've looked at paper in a catalogue and thought nothing of it, and then seen it in real life and thought...why on earth haven't I bought this, it's gorgeous! Please don't tell me I'm the only one who does this!  

This DSP is perfect for use with baby/toddler photos, although I've used it here to record a wedding day just to show how versatile it is. Envelopes used to create the inside of the mini book (which was made following a template I purchased) have been folded and cut to create little pockets, where I've added additional pull out sections making use of another new product, which is possibly my favourite item at the moment - I'm an Adminstrator by day...what can I say, filing and organisation is a bit of an obsession! ;-)
Supplies used:
Stamps - Everything Eleanor, Perfect Pennants, Petite Petals

Colours - Whisper White, Early Espresso, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana
Punches - Bird Builder, Petite Petal
Framelit Dies - File Tab 
Misc - Lullaby DSP, Rhinestone Gems, Paper Doilies, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Whisper White Envelopes

I hope you're enjoying the hop. Use the links below to hop along the chain. If you're following in sequence then your next stop should be  to the very lovely Liz, check out her wonderful work and don't forget to leave us a comment if you're enjoying the hop :-)

Sneak Peak Hello Love


Well, I finally got round to making something with my little pre-order stash which arrived last week :-)

This card is a CASE of one of the fab samples in the upcoming new Annual Catalogue. I loved it when I first saw it and although I'm not really one for cutting things out I couldn't resist having a go at this one. I love the little bird, so cute!

I've used 3 of the new in colours - Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss (still trying to learn all the new names!) ;-)

Hope to be back very soon with some more.
Thanks for popping by.

Retiring Products

30 May - 30 June 2014 (all items available while supplies last)
Saying goodbye to make way for some exciting new products.

We’re saying goodbye to hundreds of retiring products from the 2013-2014 annual catalogue. Not only that, but some of these amazing products even carry discounted prices! ALL products are only available while supplies last, so be sure to get your order in early to avoid missing out on your favourites!

I'm eagerly awaiting a delivery of some 'sneak peek ' items that demonstrators are lucky enough to see and order before the launch date of the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue. Fingers are crossed it arrives before COB tomorrow and I'll be back at the weekend with some 'sneak peeks' for you :-)
