A Christmas LO

I thought I'd be a little organised this year and do a PRE LO!! I absolutely LOVE this Teresa Collins Tinsel and Co paper pack!!  I don;t think there was one sheet I didn't like!! I want a small black and white pic of one of my children in a portrait photo.
This will be the first time I have ever created a LO before the photo!! I hope it works out!
Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to purchase the products and see the instructions and details for this LO.

Merry Christmas....!!!

Hello there!!  I went away for the week end (mini scrap retreat) and I got very busy!! Happy to sit and play with all the things I'd been collecting over the last few months.  It was such a buzz to finally just have some ME time to do as I please.
Anyway, I opened the Teresa CollinsTinsel & Company 12 x 12 paper pack and It was certainly my style!!!!  I love the soft and subtle colours and the silver and gold together CLASSY CLASSY CLASSY!! I made a few LO (be patient)  and some cards too.

Must admit the silver has made the Avery Elle  stamp, very hard to photograph, but it isn't so light IRL.  Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique for all products and instructions on how to re create this card.

Remember a few posts back I was trying to get the maximum out of my stamps....? well I have found another use but I cannot remember where I picked it up !!!! Apologies to the creative person I've lifted from!! I have made a few Christmas cards for a VERY WORTHY CAUSE organised by my fellow Scrapbook Boutique Teamie Linda.  Linda is organising the Aussie version of

I cannot seem to pop info on here (Blogger grrrrr) PLEASE go have a read and help out if you can!!


I have turned the stamp around and had to stamp a couple of times to get a good coverage (you could use any stamp that is round)  The luxe inks are so luscious and perfect for this card.  I just love the Mama Elephant Christmas stamp too!

I made another one with different colours and another sentiment from the Mama Elephant set.  More to send to Linda!!! Be quick as the cut off is soon!!!


thank you for popping in!

****ETA  apologies for the wonky circles....... I Know I KNOW I should have measured!!! lol

So very simple and looks fabulous (and great for postage too!)

Celebrate your day with Style

Hey Hello there, I have been trying to use ALL my stamps and I am embarrassed to admit........ I have SO many that I haven't even opened **BLUSH** Therese (my Fellow Scrapbook Boutique Teamie) has the BRILLIANT idea of stamping out her sets when she gets them because they can take on a different look. SHE IS SO RIGHT!!! I have played around with a few and even turned them upside down and back to front ( up coming post) and I will have to admit this is a GEM bit of advice to keep!! Some of my friends (shall remain nameless NC DP) are like me, collectors and hoarders!! TAKE THIS ADVICE GIRLS!! Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique for all instructions and products used to recreate this card (I think there might even be a sale on there at the moment )
