More cards with simply sent card kit

Another card that I have made (just than I am sooo fast- gotta love it when Julians asleep and the kids are at school. I was doing the "you and me"card that i had posted on here earlier with just the one flower in the corner) but it looked really plain. I have again used the black and white card stock to fit C6 envelope. I have also used the stamps and markers in the simply sent pack and have also used my own black stampin write which is NOT included in the pack. I think it looks pretty

The following cards I made last night and made one up this morning (I made it while Logann got dressed so that is how quick and easy they are)

this is the one i made up really quickly. It uses all the

products in the kit... I have used the ......for you as the

flower stem, it looks so effective on here!

This one is also made up with everything in the pack except the paper

with the Friend stamped on it is in the designer paper in the mini

I have made this up with the stamps and red pen from the kit, I have

just changed the paper. I have gone white and black. I think it would

look better with the one flower in the corner and the saying in the opposite

corner. Obviously I have also just used plain black ink. (paper and black

ink not included in the simply sent pack)

Product Spotlight: SImply Sent : FRIENDLY NOTES

Hello again.... WOW what an exciting month coming up with Stampin Up! So many discounted items it is GREAT!! I wanted to show you one of the packs that are on special from the 4th to 11th October only. This pack is the friendly notes card pack and page 13 and will be 20% off the original price. Now I must admit that I was expecting alot of stuff in my pack but I thought oh it would only be enough to make the 14 cards only. HOW WRONG WAS I!!! I have so much left over. In this pack I got 92 mini glue dots (so no need to buy glue) I got one paper piece of dimensionals ( these usually come in three to a packet. These are used to make your item stick out and not glued flat.) I got extra brads ( the pin looking things - Yes- i also like how technical I am). I can not rave on enough about this pack.

Even the box it comes in is pretty!

Everthing that comes in the packs. This is a great way for people to test out the Stampin Up products. Plus, for those of us who are not very creative, it has step by step instructions on how to make two cards. With the left overs you can create what you want too!! And if you enjoy the cards as is, all you have to do is order the paper and you can make it all over again!!

This is all you need to make one of the card designs HOW EASY!!

This is the end product! I do not know why but everytime I take a photo

of the end product its ALWAYS blurry.. I hate that!

I will be making my own normal C6 sized cards with the products (bar the card stock) in the pack. I will be posting them up on here within the next few days! This set is a great set for begginners too advanced... Once again, the items included with the pack are way more than you need to creat the 14 cards! If you are interested in the card packs please let me know.

6 inch X 6 inch pages for Scrap booking

Thought that it would be a good idea to start my own scrapbook. I am making it 6 x 6. Below are three of the pages I have just done.

All are from the "confetti" pack and I still can not get over how much I have left after making the pages.

This Pack is for Briannans Birthday, she is turning 11 on the 25th September

This one is for Rays birthday

This is for Allanna's Birthday, She will be turning 6 in January.... Yes I know I am getting ahead of myself but who can blame me when I get to play with all this cool stuff!!

Please feel free to give me some tips or advice or comments on any of the things that I make. it would be great to get some feed back!

Scrapbooking pack!

I got my scrap booking "confetti" pack today. It has far more in it than I thought.

I have already had a play! Below is my first ever ON MY OWN attempt! So do not be too harsh!

I made the size of the paper 8 inches by 8 inches as the scrap book that Bec had made for Julian was that size. The photo is not the best quality I know but I will try to take a better photo later when the battery's are all recharged!

Product of the fortnight

I am purchasing my very first Scrap booking kit. I am going to go the confetti style because we have had so many birthday's in the last couple of weeks, and more to come!

The pre made Scrap booking kits contain 3 sheets 30.5 x 30.5 of double sided patterend paper, 2 sheets each of 30.5x30.5cm textured card stock, in 4 different colours and 2 sheets each of 15.2x30.5cm self adhesive die cuts with 3 different designs.
There are 6 scrap booking packs to choose from and all cost $36.95 + postage. You get to create a MINIMUM of 4 scrap booking pages at 30.5x30.5.. of course this all depends on your creativity!

All of these kits can be found on pages 137 to 139.

I am going to cut my card stock down to 6" x 6" so I will be able to make at least 4 pages. But we will see how it goes and I will post the pages on here as I make them.
