Scrapbooking Papers Offer!

We seem to be between bouts of nice weather - let's hope the sun starts to shine again soon!

Stampin' Up! is offering 4 packs of doublesided Scrapbooking Paper for the price of 3 until the end of the month. That works out at £23.25 for 4 packs at £7.75 per pack.

The designs are the three new ones that are in the Mini Catalogue and the range that can be seen on page 93 of the Current Idea Book And Catalogue (while stock lasts).
If you don't have a Catalogue you can see the on-line version of the main one plus the Mini one if you click on the pictures of the catalogues on the side bar to the right.

If you like the idea of becoming an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator with me, there is also an offer to make a start with a Scrapbooking Kit as well.

If you're interested in either of these offers you'll need to get your skates on as they both end on Sunday, 31st May.

For more details, please e-mail me at

Thank you for looking!

Sweet Dreams

As promised, here's the layout I did using the same sketch as for yesterday's card. I think the Always Artichoke card stock makes the Pretty In Pink look even more delicate.

As you can see I've turned it on its side. This is a 6" layout, but it could easily be scaled up to a 12" layout if you prefer.

In case you're wondering where I used the White Gel Pen - I used it to draw 'thread' on the buttons!

Stamps: Sanded

Paper: Always Artichoke, Pretty In Pink, Hostess Patterns Pack DSP & Basic Grey

Ink: Always Artichoke

Accessories: Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Soft Subtles Buttons, White Gel Pen, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals & Boho Blossoms Punch

Bloomin' With Beauty

I love this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! - it's called Bloomin' With Beauty and has a lovely bee image. My name, Deborah, actually means bee in Hebrew, so this is why I love the little creatures! You can see the whole set on page 40 of the current Idea Book And Catalogue.

The paper is from the Hostess Patterns Pack DSP and I chalked around the edges to soften them a bit. These papers are only available as a Free Hostess Product for the duration of the current Idea Book And Catalogue and I love the colours that have been used for them. Check them out on page 11.
I used my new Scallop Square Punch to make the mats for the bee images.
Watercolour Wonder Crayons were used to paint the images. Being a watercolourist I found the Crayons and Aqua Painters a bit alien to use at first, but now I'm a convert! They take up little space, are clean and are available in all the Stampin' Up! range of colours.

I designed a sketch to make the card and if you'd like a copy then please e-mail me at
Check back to see the scrapbook layout I did using the same sketch.

Anyway, here's the recipe for the card.

Paper: Always Artichoke, More Mustard & Hostess Patterns Pack DSP
Ink: Black StazOn & Always Artichoke
Accessories: Crafter's Tool Kit, White Gel Pen, Stampin' Pastels, Sponge Daubers, More Mustard 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Moss Gingham Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Aqua Painters & Watercolour Wonder Crayons
