Mini Scrapbook

Talk about on a roll !! Woo Hoo...How long will it last? Yes, I have been a busy little beaver lately. I'm enjoying my new found mojo (while it lasts). Now, I'm not quite sure what you would call this, but I'm calling it a mini scrapbook. This time, I have absolutely no idea where I came across idea. I have searched all my favourite blogs, but to no avail. As soon as I come across it, I will let you all know who the clever lady is and give her the credit she deserves. I'm planning on filling it with pics of the kids and sending it over to my darling husband who is still in the Middle East. Let me know what you think.

There are 4 more pages after this, but stamped with different images from the same set. I didn't want to bore you with all of them.

If anyone is interested in holding a workshop and making this cute little item, just give me a call.

Take care xo Jackie

Wow..two posts in as many days. Who would have thought !!!

I held a workshop last night with 5 lovely ladie
s attending. For one lady, this was her first introduction to Stampin' Up! I absolutely loved her reaction when she finished making her items. She was amazed how much fun and easy they were to make. I love that reaction. It was exactly how I felt the first time I was introduced to these amazing products.

We started off making these little post it note holders. I used the marker to rubber technique.

We then made a little greeting card and envelope and inked up the stamps with sponge daubers. I love the mottled effect you get with this process.

Here's another card I whipped up using the same technique. These colours are sooo yummy together.

Thought for today.. I allow myself to experience love, and I easily express it to others. I treat myself with care and notice this feeling all around me. The more I find it, the more it finds me.

Take care xo Jackie

Thank you cards

Having spent the last few weeks unwell, it's certainly good to be back on board.. My beautiful Mum, Dad, Sister and dearest friend Kylie all pulled together and were so supportive. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. These are just two of the thank you cards I made for them, still a couple to finish. I purchased these adorable little stamps from a company in Scotland called Funky Kits. They are called "Gorjuss Girls".

Sorry about the quality of the photos. Trying to get natural light this afternoon was impossible. With the weather the way it is at the moment, if I didn't take them today, I wouldn't have been able to post anything for quite a while longer. You get the drift..

Here's another little baby I have finally finished. It's a stationary portfolio. It was so easy to make. I'm totally lovin' the Bella Rose DSP. I start
ed this project a while ago, and I can't for the life of me remember who created it. Will do some investigating and let you know. Promise! And again, sorry about the photography.

Ahhh, I remember now. It was on Becky's blog, "Inking Idaho" and the original idea was from a la
dy by the name of Nancy Horn. I didn't "really" remember, I had a quick look. LOL...

This is on the outside, both sides are the same, just different cards. There's room on the inside for envelopes or other little goodies.

I'm holding a workshop tomorrow night and am having 6 lovely ladies come around. Can't wait. Take care.

Magnolia Stamps

Just a quick post to show you the card I made for my Mum for Mothers Day. What do you think? I know it's not the traditional type of card for a Mothers Day card, but I couldn't resist. I am head over heals in love with Magnolia stamps and Sarah Kay stamps at the moment, and any excuse for me to sit and colour-in, is always a plus.

Everything except the flowers and brad are Stampin' Up
! products.

I hope all you mums out there, had a wonderful day yesterday. I had a fantastic day. I was served breaky in bed by the kids. Mmm, cold soggy toast and a luke warm cup of tea, but I tell you what, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. That's what it's all about, isn't it!!! Well I think it is anyway.

I purchase my Magnolia and Sarah Kay stamps from Bec. Her link is in my blog list under Bizzy Becs. Her store is "FAB" and she is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Check her out, I promise you wont regret it. Your hubby might though !! LOL...

Anyway, here is the card, tell me what you think.

Till next time xxx Jackie
