Come Sail Away

I belong to a craft group that donates cards to the NZ armed forces positioned overseas every year ..I thought heck we havent got some cards for our Navy guys and girls so made these on a rare day off that Ive had.

I made 14 of these using the Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack (149552 pg 171) and I used the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cards and envelopes (149487 pg 171).

These came together very quickly! I didn’t stamp any. The Lasercut cards in this pack are incredible and just give the wow factor.

Today on my one day off from day job, I attended my Papamoa Craft group and did 30 quick Christmas cards using a retired Memories and More set…once again for the NZ troops overseas. I love this group and all that they do. We have a varied membership and knit, sew., quilt, scrapbook, make cards, embroider and generally have a great time chatting. Contact me if you live nearby and want to attend.

Happy Stamping!

August Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop

This month our guest designer is Elizabeth Rush and her theme is Back to School.

This was a perfect for a photo I found of when I went back to school! Yep I went and did a Diploma in Agribusiness when the kids were little. It took me 2.5 years to complete part time and from a class of 20, only 3 finished it. I was hard slog for my brain!! Hehe but I did it!

A couple of years after that I did more study for my Phlebotomy job ..and I knew I could do it because I had completed this diploma.

Ive kept this pretty simple and used some new products coming out in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue (DSP, wood element, rhinestones and die)

The stamps used were: I say Hello (AC pg 110 149284) and Tasteful Textures (AC pg 135 149234)

So off we go on our blog hop. The next blog on this blog hop is Julia Quinn

Scrapbooking Global July Hop

This month our Guest Designer is Lotte and she has come up with the Travel theme for this months blog hop.

You may have just come from Lisa’s blog on the hop or starting here. Whichever way, you are in for an amazing scrapbooking hop.

Here is my Layout using Garden Lane DSP, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Cardstock as my base.

The dies I’ve used are my new Faves…Sweet Silhouettes.

I’ve stamped with Good Magnolia Stamp set in some of the corners

My travel Layout is of an East Coast trip of New Zealand that my Husband and I did early this year. I hadn’t been around this way (Opotiki around to Gisborne) since I was a child and the scenery was just stunning.

My favourite place was Tolaga Bay but all of the bays were amazing and I can totally recommend this trip!

You can do this trip in one day but we took a few days and enjoyed relaxing over a glorious meal and glass of wine or beer each night in our accommodation.

If you do plan a trip around the East Coast of New Zealand, let me know and I will let you know all of our favourite places and accomodation!

Righto…Off we go off to our next blog on the hop…the lovely Julia Quinn.

Scrapbooking Global June Blog Hop-Birthdays and Parties

Another month has passed and today is our Scrapbooking Global June Blog Hop! Wow the months are going by fast!!

This month our theme is Birthdays and Parties. Theme courtesy of guest designer Marga Bultena.

Well I went hunting through my photos and found these gems ..our daughters 5th Birthday!

I was just starting to scrapbook (and decorate cakes) when she was 5 (she is now 22) so I have kept this Layout pretty simple.

This sort of Layout is called colour blocking and is a great beginner style Layout.

I used the new In Color 6×6 DSP stack (149617), Stitched Lace Dies (149625), Well Written Dies (148534) and the stamp set I used was Daisy Lane (149325)

I also did a Memories and More pocket page. I still have to do some journalling to finish this off. (Names of kids attending mainly)

Gee I was pretty proud of that cake! Hehehe.

So off we go on our blog hop. Next stop is my lovely friend Sharon Dalton.
