🎼Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...🎶


“O’ Christmas Tree, O’ Christmas Tree, How lovely are your branches?”

Sorry, but I bet you are now singing that song! 

For this month’s Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop the theme was Christmas Tree Decorations and I chose to use the Heartwarming  Hugs Suite (August to December mini catalogue p.8 to 11).

I just loved making these little boxes to fill with a Lindt chocolate to hang on my Christmas Tree.  They were created using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (Annual Catalogue p.166).  I could have carried on making these until next Christmas, no doubt they will appear on my blog on regular occasions for different themes.

This suite is so versatile, on previous posts I have used this for scrapbooking pages and have an upcoming blog hop with Christmas Cards.  So do not forget to pop back and have a look.

Well thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop and head on over to have a look at what everyone is working on.

Scrapbooking using a festive photograph for inspiration

        

Hello and welcome to my Blog

Thank you so much for stopping by on your Ink and Share Scrapbooking Blog Hop.  You may have started your journery here or hopped on over from Jo's Blog.

I knew as soon as I saw this photo exactly what photographs I wanted to use as the image on the laptop was my inspiraration. Disney!  We went as a family back in December 2016 as a belated 18th Birthday for Éloise, however we were there for my birthday so a double bonus.  

Earlier this week I had done another scrapbook blog hop where I created page one of a two page spread, so today I am showing you the second page.  

I believe I have an addiction to layers, more so using dimensional foam pads to give elements of my page a lift, having attached the brushed metallic foil to adhesive foam sheets I then cut the out using Stampin' Up!'s Playful Alpahet dies to spell my title.

Here is the photo of page one that will go along side this page:

Well thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop and head on over to have a look at what Cindy is working on.

Scrapbooking Global November 2020

Hello and welcome to my first post for the Scrapbooking Global blog hop, I hope you have a nice time looking at what everyone has created using the Nine Shapes Theme.  This scrapbook page is part of a two page spread, the second page will be on my next blog hop.

I chose to use photographs from a previous trip to Disneyland Paris where we went as a belated 18th Birthday celebration for my youngest daughter Éloise.  We had to delay the trip so that Isla could come along with us, she enjoyed her first trip to meet Mickey and friends aged just six weeks old.

This trip also coincided with my 45th birthday, so for that day we had a special Character Breakfast. Not only did I get to spend the time with my daughter and granddaughters, but I was so excited as on this trip my friend Heidi and her daughter Cody (Éloise’s friend from school) met us there and also my friend Katie (who lives in Paris) spent the day with us too.  I was a wonderful trip full of great memories.

I chose to use products from the August to December mini catalogue as I knew the Heartwarming Hugs suite would co-ordinate with my photographs and offered so much variety.  I loved the colours and the patterns, more of this suite will appear in the second page at the weekend.

Well thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Scrapbooking Global blog hop and head on over to have a look at what everyone is working on.

So currently l am working on this...


Thank you for stopping by as you enjoy your Ink.Stamp.Share Special Blog Hop.  You may have started your journey with me or hopped on over from Jo’s post, which ever it is I am happy to see you.

So what am I actually working on???

Well, if I’m honest it should be what am I not working on as at the moment I am on a mission to use as much as possible from the August to December mini catalogue as last weekend I was excited to see a copy of the new upcoming January to June Mini Catalogue (just let me know if you would like a copy!)

The other day I was part of another blog hop which involved using the Tag Buffet kit in the current mini catalogue, I had made up a full set of tags, created eight Christmas chocolate boxes but I didn’t want to stop there so I just had to create these little 3D boxes.




These boxes were so simple to make once I had decorated the tag front, and I managed to fit three Lindt chocolates into each one.

 

As you can see from the images below the Tag Buffet kit contains more than enough elements to get your creative juices flowing and or you can just make the tags up as you get very easy to follow instructions inside every kit.

Well thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with you Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop and head on over to see what Sue is working on.

Demonstrators from around the globe showing you what 3D project they have created using products from the current Stampin’ Up! catalogues.  You may have started your hopping journey from my blog or visited me after visiting Annette’s post.

Having recently used Stampin’ Up!’s Still Scenes stamp set and Snow Globe dies I was itching to make something 3D.  I had great fun creating this canvas board which I am looking forward to adding some ribbon and hanging up ready for Christmas.



Thank you so much for spending the time reading this post and I hope you enjoy the rest of your Stamp ‘n Hop journey.  Why not subscribe to my blog to be kept up-to-date with my latest crafting creations?  Hope to see you again very soon.  Time to pop over to Kim's post.

Tag Buffet Kit for the Crafty Blog Hop

 

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog post for the Crafty Blog Hop,

Today you will be seeing blog posts from global Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators as they show what they have created using Stampin’ Up!’s Tag Buffet stamp set and/or project kit which is such a versatile stamp set and kit.

I had great fun playing with both of these items and so far, I am only halfway through the kit as this is truly a kit packed with value and potential.


Once I get a kit from Stampin’ Up! I will always make up the first set of products as shown in their easy to read instructions, thereafter anything goes.  







The two tags in these pictures are the first set (six in total) that I made, then I went onto make a set of six cards to go along with the tags.  





This Saturday I am participating in another blog hop where I will show you some of the other projects that I have made. I hope you will be able to pop back and have a look at what I made using them.

   

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read this post, have fun as you continue your blog hop journey, time to pop on over to the next blog post.

Thank You card for the Demonstrator Training Programme Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another Blog Hop for the Demonstrator Training Programme which is being run by the lovely Kylie and Bruno Bertucci.

I chose to make this card for a Starbucks friend and as my good friends know I am addicted to Starbucks Egg Nog (although coffee doesn’t like me) and their merchandise.  She always lets me know the exact date that it will be coming into store and when all the seasonal merchandise arrives.

For my Thank You card I chose to use Stampin’ Up!s Press On Stamp set from the August to December mini catalogue.  I love this set so much and when it was launched my team members were messaging me to tell me to look at the page it was on as I am addicted to cups.

Today would have been my mother’s eighty-fifth birthday but she passed away four years ago after losing her fight with breast cancer.  This morning I popped off to Starbucks to purchase my Mother’s annual birthday treat (obviously for me) as she was a really big fan of Christmas.



Hope you all are enjoying this blog hop and hope to see you all again very soon.

Happy 85th Birthday Mum

Today would have been my Mum’s birthday but sadly she passed away four years ago after her fight with Breast Cancer. 

For the past four birthdays, I have always treated myself to something to remind myself of my Mum.  She was a big fan of Christmas, so last year I treated myself to Starbucks Egg Nog Latte and a Pandora cup charm.  Due to Lockdown #2 in the UK I was unable to go into the Pandora Store but that treat will happen shortly.

My Mum’s birthday is two days before Remembrance Day so I thought I was very fitting to create a Poppy themed Birthday Card, I also plan to just write a small message inside about what is happening in life so one day in the future my Grandchildren can read them.

I bought these Stampin Poppy Moments dies a while ago and I finally got around to using them yesterday to make this card.

As I was crafting for this card I had so many other ideas going around my head and I cannot wait to get my craft on some more.


Well thank you so much for reading this post and I hope to see you very soon!

Christmas Crafting for the Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop

 

Hello and thank you so much for dropping by on this rather chilly day in the UK, the weather has definitely started to step away from Autumn to head towards Winter, I’m not a fan of Winter but it certainly does mean one thing… CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!

Well you may have started the Stampin’ for Christmas Blog Hop journey with me of hopped on over from Kirsty, which ever it was I am thankful as I know you will enjoy the hop! 

I am really looking forward to Christmas, as a Nana with three beautiful (yep, I am biased) Granddaughters I could not resist creating their Christmas cards for this post.  My middle granddaughter Isla is four years old and in love with the Disney film Frozen so that is where I got my inspiration from.


I truly enjoyed making this card, so three cards later cards later they are ready for their goodie boxes on 1st December.

Just wanted to say I really do appreciate you taking the time to read my blog posts, it makes the work involved worth it.  Have a lovely time hoping and enjoy looking at the wonderful creations by Jo.
