Sneak Peak!.....And Autumn Days....love them!

Here's a Sneak Peak of a class that I will be holding in November - come and make this lovely mini scrapbook & 6 cards - Contact me for more information. BTW..I got the instructions from fellow SU! brit Jenny check out her blog here.

I love Autumn... it's one of my favourite times of the year.... Christmas is my absolute favourite time (duh!) but I would say Autumn comes in a close second place. I love the changing of the leaves... I love the rich colours everywhere... and for some reason it's the start of my tea drinking. Yup! I'm the type of Brit that only drinks tea in the autumn/winter... I don't drink it in the summer or spring. Along with a good cup of Yorkshire Tea is a Walkers piece of shortbread.... Yum! Yum! Can you tell I'm sitting here typing my blog out with a tea & shortbread. Hehehe...

Anyway... back to cards...last week I was very busy socially...I did manage to do a few creative things... but I can't post them yet seems I have to take photos of them. I did however take lots of photos of my little one frolicking in the leaves at my parents house...she's pretty cute eh?. The funny thing is, as you can see from one of the photos.. she doesn't like touching grass, gravel or leaves ;} I hear it's a common kid thing... Did anyone else experience this??? Please, please leave me a comment...

Great tip - lose those frays!

Just a quick post... I was sent this tip and thought I would share it to my friends ;} seems it was a common complaint I had.

Since moving to SU! paper/cardstock I found some cardstock would fray all the time when I used my regular paper trimmer :{. Firstly I thought it was the blade...but after a few replacements realised it was the cardstock. The Whisper White was the worse seems it's soooo soft!! So... I found I would always have to sand the paper with my sandblocks to make the cut clean. Anyway this video was just recently posted by a fellow SU demonstrator Tanya. What a great idea!!! Try it out!

So many fun designs... so little time to make them :{

That is truely how I feel... I see so many cards designs I like...but I never seem to have the time to make them. Where is my stamping time going too? I always thought I would be able to stamp while the babe was in bed for her naps... but that hasn't worked out ;} I spend more time surfing the www to see what everyone is doing. Anyway.. this week my plan is to put together some stamping classes, so that my friends can sign up and come and hang out and make a few cards. Who's in?

Oh! and here's a sneak peak of a card I have made for a friend who's due any week now. Infact.. if you'd have seen her back in July you would of thought she had only a month to go back then ;} She's one of those lucky gals who is very slender and 'popped' as soon as she was pregnant. Anyway... this weekend I'm heading down to Kingston to hang out with her and get our feet pampered. I remember when I was pregnant... I loved getting my feet massaged!!!! It'll be just in time for footie/soccer season. Hopefully my friend doesn't see this on FB... I doubt it... seems she's not on FB very often ;}

Did you notice that I decorated the envelope aswell.... pretty eh?

Deals of the Week!!

Just a quick note.... Stampin Up! have started Deals of the Week!! this week is the week of the Punches!!

Check it out!

Contact me if you would like to get a new punch :)

Here's something I did earlier...

Sorry I've been a little out of the blogging for a while... I've been trying to create more than publish... it is very easy to get so lost in the blogging world. Infact I have signed up to some of my fav blogs and so far I'm over 1000 to read...ek!

What have I been doing? Well...last week I attended my uplines Shoebox Swap.. plus a participated in a local Christmas Mini Swap. I've taken some photos and I will post some of my favourites. In the meantime... here's one I did earlier :)

I used the Petal Pizzazz set...Can you see i even prettied up the envelope :} I used the baby wipe technique...it's a pretty cool technique and one I use often. It blends all the colours together on one stamp...this means it'll never be the same. The DSPaper is from an old pack I was given as a reward at a Su evening.... I couldn't resist it seems I like anything with polka dots ;}

Check back tomorrow for my new card-making classes for Oct & Nov & plus I figured I would give you a sneak peak on a baby shower card I made last night.
