Happy 2010!!

Apologies for my lack of posting. Had a bit of a break over Christmas & New Year, but I am back to business now!

Haven't got much to show you but here is what I have done :)

I am really enjoying using the Simply Scrappin' Kits at the moment. They are a great, easy way to scrap and you can step them up to suit your tastes :)

Here is a page I did using the 'I Wish' Simply Scrappin' Kit

Supplies: 'I Wish' Simply Scrappin' Kit, Frames with a Flourish stamp set, Short Order Alphabet stamp set, Simple Serif Mini Alphabet stamp set, Scallop Edge punch, On Board Loads of Letters chipboard, Ridinghood Red Classic Stampin Pad, Whisper White Craft Stampin Pad, Encore Gold Ink Pad, Stampin Write Markers
I am a member of the Elite Stampers which is a wonderful team full of ladies that offer support, suggestions and inspiration :) This year, I participated in a Secret Santa on the forum. My lovely secret santa bought me an On Board Art Journal and the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini. It's called Kaleidoscope and it is just beautiful. So much better in person than it looks in the catalogue!

Anyway! I made myself a Memory Book using the journal and the DSP so I can record all the funny/cute/memorable things my kids say or do. There is 50 sheets in the journal so I figure I have plenty of room for both kids in the same book. One side has Alannah and then you flip it over and it becomes Ryan's book :) I have used the Spiral punch to help fit the papers easily over the cover.

Here is the cover of Alannah's side of the book

It uses the pink, girly papers from the Kaleidoscope pack and some felt thickers I had lying about. Simple, the papers are so lovely they didn't need much to enhance them :)

Then the inside of Alannah's side....

Ryan's side uses the more boyish papers in Kaleidoscope. It is a very unisex set, has a bit for everyone :) Then it also has the same felt thickers as Alannah's side.

And the inside.....

Thanks for looking, stay tuned for the details of Sale-A-Bration which starts on 25 Jan and don't forget about the Inventory Clearance Sale that ends on 24th January. Most stock is still available, Jumbo Outline Alphabet, Just Riding and Wild West Alphabet have sold out so far.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
