Home from a crafty weekend ;0)

Well I made it back to the Isle safe and sound after a lovely weekend away visiting my friend Natalie in MK followed by a days crafting with some fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators in Bicester. My upline Michelle hosted a rewards day for us where we made the following beautiful project using the Stampin' Up! Elegant Soiree DSP and Wedding Sweet Stamp Set Flourish.

This first photo shows the tri shutter album shut.  Embellished with a stamped 'Flower Accent' image, Basic Pearls and Crystal Effects.

This is the album fully unfolded (this is actually the width of two and half pieces of 12x12 cardstock) and decorated with Elegant Soiree DSP.
This is a photo showing the first 'unfold' if you get my drift. It is a stunning album and I will certainly be making more in the future. Once I got my head around the measurements it was a simple but effective way to make a Mini Album.
Here is my new Swap Tree showing some of the lovely swaps I received from my fellow Demos at the training ;0) My cheeky cat Ella was desperate to get in the photos. You'll see her through the kitchen window behind the swaps.  I usually display my swaps on my fridge for my card class ladies. But when I saw this photo display tree I thought I would create a swap centre piece for my card class just for a change. Thank you to all the lovely demos I met yesterday who made such beautiful projects ;0)
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Any questions about Stampin' Up! please feel free to get in touch on or 07830 343830. Hopefully I'll have a bit more time  this week to catch up on some long overdue crafting and update my blog with some new projects ;0)
