Good Morning !
Did you have a wonderful weekend? I certainly did, boy am I still shattered though, but with such a big beam on my face. Stamping with friends is sooooo good for the soul and a team meeting is 100 times better! We always have demonstrators who run “Inspiration Stations” they focus on a product or technique and showcase lots of ideas using it. The projects were amazing and I have so many wonderful ideas I will share with you over the coming months. The business training was amazing, Michelle Last is such an inspiration and of course we stamped, laughed, ate cake and made lots of new friends. Did you know that you too could attend one of my team trainings, if you are interested in joining Stampin’ Up! they are a great way of being able to find out lots and talk to a wide range of demonstrators who all run their businesses in different ways.
My next monthly evening training is Wednesday 9th February and all day quarterly training is Saturday 9th April, email me to book your place.
I must also say a huge thank you to my lovely team who attended convention with me, they surprised me with a bead for my troll bracelet, it’s super cute tiny high heeled shoe and the biggest box of chocolates I have ever seen………!
More important news, I have a stand booked at the Brighton Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show. B04 please do come along and visit me and my team, we will be running Make and Takes for all 3 days, so book a place as soon as you arrive! Click on the picture to book tickets and find out more.
Paris Mini Scrapbook Tutorial
The mini scrapbook is a variation of a toilet roll scrapbook that was popular several years ago, I have never quite got my head around the use of the toilet rolls……….and to be fair they are quite difficult to cover with paper so it looks nice. So I measured one and designed this instead.
There are 3 pockets, one each in Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Ridinghood Red, this is to match the colours in the Love Letter Designer series paper.
Each pocket is 6 1/2″ x 7″ and is scored at 3′, 6″ with the short side at the top and 1″ with the long side at the top. The 1/2″ flap is glued to the inside and 2 jumbo eyelets are punched into the 1″ scored area to enable the ribbon to be threaded through.
3 tags where made in the same colours each measuring 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″, the pull tab is the round tab punch.
The whole thing was then decorated with Artistic Etching stamp set and the Love Letters papers. Pictures below of how I decorated mine. If you make one please link back so I can see your creations!
This album is ready for the pictures from this years convention, at Disneyland Paris it’s going to be so much fun!
