BtCR - October

Two cards this month - and I need to make more! I am currently up to 60 as I type this post, as seeing as its a scheduled post I am hoping when this goes live I have made a few more - I would like to get to 100!
 These cards were made all using Stampin Up products - and you can get these from me via my SU Blog which can be found here! Look on the left hand side of the blog for the SU catalogue and it will direct you to order direct from Stampin Up by via me as your consultant!

 This one again using SU products and I have finished of the edge with a bit of decorative die cutting and embossing - and I just love this stamp!

Please go over to Sue's blog to see what cards she has made and link up your cards to her blog!

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #107

My first official post as a member of the Inspired Blueprints Design Team! Here is this weeks sketch #107
 These are photos of Jack on his 15th Birthday.  I have used some papers that I have had in my paper collection for ages - Basic Grey 'Life of the party' collection.  I love returning to a paper collection I've not used for ages and was clearly one of my favourites as there isn't much left!
 I have used my Bigshot to cut out some balloons and made them a little bit sparkly with some stickles, they've been finished off with a small bit of bakers twine.
 My page just wouldn't be complete without some bling and I have used lots of Prima red pearly bling here.  I have also added some little wood veneer stars by Studio Calico.
 I hand cut some tiny bunting from the PP and finished it off with some coordinating brads from the same Basic Grey collection.
 I've highlighted the number '15' from the PP using a metal frame. Look do you notice - not a butterfly or flower in sight...count yourself lucky this time Jack!!
Thanks for looking and please check out the Inspired Blueprints blog and check out what the rest of the DT have done with this weeks sketch!

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #105

I'm soooooo excited I could burst!  I was only introduced to this blog weeks ago - and fell in love with the sketches! I love to work from a sketch, it always gives me a good starting point. Imagine my delight when I applied to be on the Design team and then I was chosen to join such a fab group of talented scrappers!

Here is this weeks Inspired Blueprints Sketch # 105
My Layout featuring photos of my gorgeous boys Jack and Sam, my whole world, the reason and the inspiration for my scrapping!
I have used paper collections from Prima - Lyric Collection
As always embellished with Prima flowers and bling, my friend Sue commented to me the other day how I do 'Boy' pages with bling, flowers and butterflies so well!! Lisa also asked me to describe in five words what my scrapbooking style is - and I said flowers, bling, butterflies. embellishments, feminine (but with masculine photos!) I love flowers and butterflies so just because I have boys it doesn't mean they can't have a butterfly or a flower (or a few more!!) on their page.

Thanks as always for looking and please go over to the Inspired Blueprints blog and see what the rest of the DT have done with this weeks sketch!
