Off for the WCC Retreat...

Well I had hoped to get losts of crafty things done this week to post on here. However, its been a quiet one all in all. I have been planning a craft charity event for November which is taking up a lot of my time. And all the crafting I have been doing has been with the new Stampin’ Up products which I cannot post till tomorrow.

I am off this weekend for the Wight Craft Circle Retreat over in Totland where I will hopefully be getting LOTS of crafting done. I have been writing a list of things I’d like to scrapbook and there just aren’t enough hours in the weekend to get it all done. But I am excited as it is my first retreat and it’ll be great to spend some time with the lovely WCC ladies talking all things crafty ;0) (and any weekend which involves a Cricut to play with has to be a good one ;0)

So I’ll be back online Sunday with lots of new things to share. In the mean time, the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue launches tomorrow. I for one have a wish list as long as my arm of things I’d like to order. So if you have anything you’d like me to add to my order, just let me know and I’ll get this in asap!

Not strictly Stampin' Up!....

Here is a lovely little 'New Catalogue' card I made for Ladybird Paige using a cross stitch chart I'd found in my chart files and some Real Red and Basic Black Cardstock (along with a couple of my SU circle punches!). I love this card. Its one of my favourites that I've made in a while. Just goes to show that SU can easily combine with existing stash or with other crafting methods.

More Wight Craft Circle Crop Makes...

Here are two more LOs from yesterdays Crop. The 'Water Babies' LO is for Week 28s challenge- 'Traditions' & 'Journalling'. The second one was just for fun using some old baby photos I had in my photo folder.

Had such a lovely day chatting and crafting with the Wight Craft Circle Ladies. Looking forward to our scrapbooking retreat next month even more now.....

Funky Friday Challenge #74

I've missed a couple of weeks challenges, so I laid aside some time especially to complete this at yesterdays Wight Craft Circle Crop. This is my #74 challenge for Funky Friday Challenges.

This weeks challenge was based on the sketch above. I used this lovely old photo of my cousin, Shayla, and school friend, Jayne, and I dressed as angels when we worked on a Christmas Extravaganza on a historic steam train on the IOW.

I also used this as the basis for the Scrap With Us challenge for week 29 'Lost and Found'. I decided this was a perfect photo as it was a lost memory (I had completely forgotten about doing this and about wearing my Nanny's wedding dress!) that was found in my Nanny's box of photos I borrowed. A perfect challenge fit ;0)

Autumn Meadows DSP
Creamy Caramel A4 Card

This was the most impossible card to photograph! You would not believe the struggles i had last night. And even then the photos aren't great.

Anyways, here is a new baby card I made for my gorgeous friend Hannah. I used All In The Family, the nursery letters wheel (retiring) & Fox & Friends. The main colours are Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue & Green Galore. I also faintly inked the babygrow from the Level 2 Hostess Set in Turquoise as a background on the main card.
