Flip Flop First Christmas

OK now as I said before I LOVE this stamp set, so versitile and christmassy and most of all I love the sentiment stamps that come with it!

First Christmas (127988 wood mount) (127991 clear mount)
So this time I made a Flip flop card using:
 Garden Green cardstock (108605)
 Real Red cardstock (106578) 
and Whisper White cardstock (106549)
 the inks I used were
 So Saffron (I used a Stampin' Write Marker) (119700 pack of Subtle collection markers) (126957) 
Chocolate chip (126979)
Real Red (for the border of the inside message) (126949) 
and Cherry Cobbler (again I used a Stampin' Write Marker) (126966) (119681 single marker only)
 I also used VersaMark (102283) and Gold Emboss Powder (109129) for the background.
 I used Sticky Strip (104294) to stick it all together 
(waiting on my order for my SNAIL adhesive (104332)

I apologise for the lack of decent lighting in my photos, im no photographer (not even an amateur!) 

As always if you want to order any of these products used above (or any other products in the amazing new Stampin' Up catalogue including the seasonal Autumn/Winter Catalogue)  then just contact me. Stampin' Up products are a quality second to no other I have found, and are ONLY available for purchase through Stampin' Up demonstrators. If your interested in earning FREE products contact me about holding a Stampin' Up party or even joining my NEW and EXCLUSIVE group called "Stampers 10" where you will get free gifts every month, free postage and packaging on any orders and access to my new Stampers 10 ONLY blog where we can share ideas and techniques with each other, great for those who cannot make it to a craft group. The best part about Stampers 10 however is that in one month out of the 10 you will be entitled to at least £25 of product from the Stampin' Up catalogue absolutely FREE! The only obligation you will have is that as part of the group you must spend at least £15 a month for 10 months (thats only £3.75 a week which is cheaper than a craft magazine!) Its a great way of starting to get through that wishlist. Places are going fast with the build up to christmas and then early next years annual sale-a-bration. Just contact me for more info or to book your month on the calander (November and December are still open!!)

I already have ideas for my next creations using this stamp set so keep in touch.

My crafting space :)

My little crafting space, a little more organised then it once was, its a little corner of the spare room/ soon to be babies room (7 1/2 weeks to go!) My poor husband hasn't seen me out of this room much since i sorted it all out :)

Don't forget the Open House on 3rd November and keep watching this space as I sort out my card making classes, scrap-booking classes and exclusive offers clubs in the next few weeks. I'm very excited for these opportunities for people and I hope you will be happy with them too :)

Saturday 3rd November ANYTIME between 10am and 4pm

Im so excited!! Im holding my first Open House event at my home in Newport, Isle of Wight. Whats an Open House I hear you say? Well my home will be open to all those wishing to attend this event where there will be cake and soft drinks. Its a chance to meet new people or get out with friends. There will be a free card making class where we will make a simple christmas card using the Stampin' Up! products from the new catalogues. So no one attending will go away empty handed and its all absolutely free! If that wasnt enough then to add to it all you will have the chance to enter a free prize draw and win a bundle of Stampin' Up! goodies. Everyone attending will have this chance (usually only given to Hostesses or parties placing qualifying orders) and if you come with a friend you will get TWO entries each (or 3 or 4 depending on how many friends you bring) All orders placed on the day will receive a free catalogue AND free postage and packing. So you really cant go wrong! There is no obligation to spend any money, just come along for the free cake and fun of stamping. No experience is needed I welcome people of all experience levels to join in the fun. Let me know by email or phone or text (whichever suits you) if you want to come along, Im happy to meet new people and gather with old friends.

"I cant make it! Im working/child commitments" :'( dont worry! If you dont feel your children can come with you (they are more than welcome) You can have all of the above still plus EXTRA benifits with your own family and friends when you book a party with me (ITS ALL FREE) We can do it at your own home whenever best suits you, you will get a free catalogue, free postage and packaging for anything you order yourself, free card class, a special free hostess gift, and the chance to enter the prize draw, PLUS I will do a mini prize draw giveaway for your guests on the day. How fantastic! As if that wasnt enough you will also receive special hostess discounts AND money to spend in the catalogue starting from £25 when your party places a qualifying order (a qualifying order is £150 which is only £15 per person if 10 people are attending) the more spent at the party the more benefits you could earn. Dont delay, have a fantastic unique christmas party with your friends and family.

This isnt the end, look out for more FANTASTIC offers and great things happening soon!

Here we go!

So I have not quite got my craft room/table as set up as I would like yet but my Starter kit arrived so I have been playing with all my new goodies. I did go on holiday for a week not long after it all arrived so I apologise for the lack of posts. 
Here is a card I made using the Stamp set First Christmas clear mount 127991 (only £10.95!) 
The colours I used are Night of Navy card stock and a little bit of basic grey at the bottom and very vanilla. Inks used are So Saffron, Night of Navy and Basic Grey. For embellishments I used some small silver brads and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. (colours have come out a little bit bright in the pictures)

I'm not sure if you can see from the photo very well but I also used dimensionals to place the manger slightly inset from the card.

I love this stamp set, a proper CHRISTmas stamp set and very versitile.
I love this technique especially as you can see the side view casts a really nice shadow of the star inside the card. (I haven't made the inside of my card yet but I was excited to share this amazing stamp set with you)
Expect to see more from this set ;)

If you want to buy any of the items listed above or any other items from Stampin' Up! Just contact me. If you place an order before the end of October there is FREE postage and packing! Look out for posts to come in the next week, LOTS of exciting things are happening :)

In progress...

In progress pretty much sums up my life at the moment. Baby in progress (10 weeks left!) blog in progress (it will get better!) and my demonstrator starter kit for stampin' up ... In progress :-( so now I'm just waiting for them to finish picking and packing and send it to me. I'm soo excited I want it now but seen as I have time to spare whilst I'm waiting I can sort out the spare room which for the foreseeable future will be baby/craft room. So keep your eyes peeled for future posts where my progresses can become accomplishments and new "in progresses"
Keep stampin'
