Partying and Scrappin’ using Stampin’ Up! ® products

Oh I’ve been super busy lately. I had a great party last week with a group of avid scrapbookers. It’s the first scrapbooking party I have done, and I decided to go with a Christmas layout I had seen on Pinterest ages ago and been meaning to try out. I’m all for following the two birds with one stone motto!

The ladies all enjoyed themselves, I’m pleased to report and loved using the Stampin’ Up! products. Since then I have been madly getting ready for my Christmas Card class on Thursday night, in between a weekend of birthday parties and looking after one poorly little boy. Its true you should be careful what you wish for – next time I’m wishing for a little peace and quiet when the Bedlam Brothers are at full pelt, I will try to remember how horrible it feels when they are lying poorly on the sofa not tearing around.

Anyway, back to my scrapbook page. I have some lovely pictures from Christmas 2011 and I wanted to showcase Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 cardstock and DSP.  I chose to use the Winter Frost Speciality DSP with the Island Indigo and Smoky Slate textured cardstock. I love it – I really need to get scrapping more.

Pinkies Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue Blog Hop………

  1. We’re so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop. We’ll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

    If you have arrived here from Caro’s blog, a big hello to you………

    This is a doubly exciting blog post for me, as not only is it my first ever Pinkies blog hop, it is my first ever blog post!

    I decided to do a scrapbook page for my project, as this way I can showcase some of my favourite products from the new Annual Catalogue (the new Gorgeous Grunge stamp set jumped out at me the instant I saw it in the new catalogue and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.)…

  3. …….and  also so I can introduce my blog – Bedlam & Butterflies – at the same time.

    So why Bedlam & Butterflies? 
    Well …. Bedlam for my two little boys aka. the Bedlam Brothers. I definitely have my hands full with these two. If they go quiet I get suspicious. I learnt that the hard way as you can see from the pictures! 
    When I designed the page layout in my head there was much more white space than there is in the finished page. I did consider redoing the project but I think this layout expresses the chaos of my days, so I left it as it is.

    1. …….And Butterflies? 
    3. Because the very first stamp set I bought was of butterflies and then when I joined Stampin’ Up! the very first stamp set I bought was Papillon Potpourri – a set of butterflies, quickly followed by the matching punches!
