Enchanting everyone !

The Everyday Enchantment designer papers appear to be a HUGE hit with everyone – they are soooooooooo adaptable.  I have used the papers on both male and female scrapbook pages, and a shed load of mini albums !  At only £9.95 for 12 double sided papers – they are an absolute bargain !  Of course you ARE guaranteed the Stampin Up! quality – so its no wonder they’re so popular !

Spray a 12 x 12 sheet of crumb cake cardstock with Indigo Island reinker or marker (use marker with spritzer tool)

Stamp the woodgrain background stamp with Early Espresso inkpad.  I stamped the image 3 1/2” from the top and 1 3/4” from the right hand side of the page.

Cut a 6” x 3” piece of paper. (as shown).  Ink edges with Early Espresso inkpad.

Trim a 1” X 12” piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and punch with the lacey border punch.  Add a 6” strip to the bottom of the 6“ x  3” strip of paper.

Add a 3” x 4” photograph in a landscape direction over the piece of patterned paper as shown.  Adhere this mat to the layout over the woodgrain background stamp.

Punch out 11 large hearts and 3 small hearts in co-ordinating papers, ink all the edges.  (I also folded the hearts in half an inked down the middle edge).  Add 10 large hearts and 3 smaller hearts as shown in my sample.

Add a 2” strip of the remaining punched out Pumkin Pie border and add to the top left hand side of the layout, approx 1/2” from the top.  Add the remaining heart as shown.

Voila !

Lovin’ it !

Mini albums that is !   I love, love, love scrapbooking, and to me, an extension of that is making mini albums to house my memories.  What a better way of remembering a particular event or a particular memory.  What a beautiful gift to give someone of a special one-off occasion.

I have lots of events that have happened this year, in particular Aarons prom, and more that are due to happen – my friends Alison and Simon are getting married in two weeks, and then of course, the BIG one – my BIG Birthday !  So, I am getting prepared, and I have started making mini albums to ensure that I never forget these momentous events Smile

At the moment, I’m working on mini albums to give to each of the In-Laws at ‘the wedding’ – so I’ll post them once they are done !

The first album below is a TOILET ROLL mini album complete with inserts and uses the Everyday Enchantment papers, Four Frames stamp set, Decorative Label Punch, and the FREE brads and ribbons that you can earn for spending £45 this month. 

The second album is a maze album, and uses the same Everyday Enchantment papers, the boho blossoms punch and sadly, a retired label punch. 

The third album is a matchbook album again, complete with inserts, and uses Attic Boutique papers, Everything Eleanor stamp set, Markers and the gorgeous spotty scallop ribbon. 

The Everyday Enchantment papers, are only available this month (July) £9.95, and the FREE brad and ribbons can be earned by spending £45.

Europe here we come !!

STAMPIN’ UP!  EXPANDING IN EUROPE Coming to the Netherlands & Austria
It is with huge excitement that I can announce that Stampin Up!  are preparing to open for business in the Netherlands and Austria before the end of 2012! Stampin Up!  are also opening up the borders in our European markets (UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, and Austria) to allow Demo’s to sell and recruit in all five countries!

New countries In 2007 Stampin Up! decided to open for business in Europe in three languages: English, French, and German. While they continue to offer only those three languages in Europe, it is exciting news for the growth potential in Europe. Stampin UP! have therefore decided to make our products available in Austria as a German-speaking market as well as in the Netherlands, where SU! will operate in English only.
If you are from these countries and would love to join the Stampin Up family, then please get in touch with me for details on how to join my team Smile OR, when this goes live,  and you wish to purchase products or join my ‘virtual’ stampers ten groups, then please also get in touch Smile

STAMPERS 10 GROUP – Spread the Cost !!
I have 3 places left for my virtual stampers 10 group starting in August.  If you would like to earn FREE products (at LEAST £20 worth), then please contact me immediately to reserve your place in the group.
With all the new changes to Stampin Up! in September and October, there has never been a better time to spread the cost of purchasing products, particularly all the NEW products.  As a reminder, we will be launching the new (to us) Autumn/Winter Catalogue in September, containing heaps and heaps of Halloween and Christmas products.  Then in October, we will be launching the new Main Catalogue – which will be on par with the US Catalogue, and will contain everything that the US catalogue contains, except US-related products.

These are exciting times for Stampin Up! and for us Demo’s, and truly, there has never been a better time to join the Family.

As always, for more details or information, or to place an order, please contact me on carole.bryson@gmail.com or call me on 01706 351299 or 07765 847062.

Faux Stitching & Cal's Crazy Christmas !

I designed the following card and layout for the UKScrappers Technique Thursday.  To see the technique forum on UKS, make your way HERE - you will find shed loads of free tutorials that I have put together, using lots of different techniques for you to experiment with.

This weeks technique was faux stitching, and I am sure we all do ours in different ways. :)  As UKS is not a Stampin Up dedicated forum, I have used different products for this project :)  ... just in case you were wondering ! :)

4 different patterned papers (one large flower design, one smaller flower design, one spotted paper and one plain coloured paper in a co-ordinating colour)
Alphabet of your choice (I used my own printed 'Adornit' type alphabet)
Rhinestones or Pearls
White signo pen
Paper piercer

Instructions for the layout

Step 1) Cut the large flower strip 1 3/4" x 9" and cut out a tail at the bottom
Step 2) Cut the spotty paper strip 2" x 6" and cut a tail at the bottom
Step 3) Cut the blue plain paper 3/4" x 5 3/4" and cut an angle (left to right) at the bottom
Step 4) Cut the photo mat 4 3/4" x 6" and place a photograph measuring 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" to the bottom right hand corner of the mat.
Step 5) Adhere the patterned papers as shown in my sample.
Step 6) Adhere the title to the top left hand corner of the photograph and the bottom right hand corner of the photograph
Step 7) Cut out one large and two smaller flowers from the patterned paper, and adhere to the layout using foam pads where indicated.  Cut out and adhere half of a large flower to the bottom right hand corner of the background cardstock. 
Step 8) Add pearls or rhinestones to the centre to add a bit of 'glam'.
Step 9) Using a ruler, draw a light pencil line around the top left hand corner 'larger flower' strip, and then do the same for the photograph map, but draw a light pencil line around the bottom right hand corner.
Step 10) Using a paper piercer, poke holes along the pencil lines at regular intervals.  Using a white signo ball pen, join up the pierced holes.   Gently rub out the pencil lines.
Step 11) To finish, I distressed the edges of the layout.

You're finished :)

DON'T FORGET - Cal's Crazy Christmas Stamp-a-Stack on Saturday 14th July @ Turf Hill Community Centre 
from 10am to 2pm.   
The cost is £25 and includes all the products that you will need to produce at least 16 Christmas Cards, refreshments and calories !
