Good Morning...

A little break from the Christmas crazy that seems to be taking over us all today with a little peek at a new stamp set coming up in the Seasonal Catalogue which goes live on January 5th.

Balloon Builders is a cool little collection of balloon shaped stamps, you know the kind of balloons clowns make things from?

As soon as I saw this in the catalogue I knew it would be on my wish list. There some fab  
samples in the catalogue to inspire you but straight away my head said wedding card. The horseshoe balloon reminded me of confetti you throw at weddings and so last night I put ink to card and this is what I came up with.

I stamped the horseshoe in Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand to allow the gold embossing to really shine.

This shows the embossing much better and the texture and shine is second to none. 

I hope you enjoyed the little break form Christmas and if you want to know more about how to get theses stamps for yourself and even better still at a discount then please get in touch. I would love to hear from you and even better welcome you to my team x

Project Life catch up...

Apologies from the start but this post is a little picture heavy compared to my usual.

It's been chaotic here beyond belief and while we have still benn enjoying the fun that Pax gets up to, managing to blog about it has gone to pot.

So here is a catch up of the Elf antics and how they have been recorded in the album. 
Thank goodness for Project Life when real life gets busy

Day 4 Pax tries to get the goodies on top of the fridge
Day 5 Pax went on an adventure and got stuck in the tree! Thankfully Caiden is a top reader and managed to read the note Pax left and found him just in time.

Day 6 Pax decided to have some fun in the night and bounced all the way downstairs like and andrex puppy! 

Day 7 Pax found Caiden's art box and decided to cheer up the bananas!!!

Day 8 Just what a busy Mum needs.... Pax decided it is too warm here and wanted to play in the snow again like he does at the North Pole. Only thing he found was flour so we woke to flour angels.

Be sure to keep popping by to see how the album develops. Hopefully time will be plentiful this week.

More Elf adventures...

Pax is proving to be a very lovable little Elf. Caiden is excited every morning to come downstairs and see what has been going on and even more excited to help me record his adventures in his own little album. 

Stampin' UP! and their Project Life kit have made it so much fun to save the memories. 

A little bit of washi tape and the photo is added to the layout in seconds. 

Here is the double page ready to pop back into the album.

Pop by again tomorrow to see if the lovable little chappie carries on behaving!

Good Morning... 

Another fun filled night with our little visitor and this time I got to share the fun of recording his adventures with Caiden as he helped me put this page together.

A simple layout today using just the top 2 pockets in a four pocket page from the Project Life pack. 

I used 2 of the smaller matte cards with the left hand side one acting as a background to the photo. 

Caiden, who is just 5 1/2 (isn't that half important when you are that age lol) added the little stickers to the picture. He was adamant that he did it all by himself and I think he did a pretty good job. 

Just show's how simple memory keeping can be and with Project Life from Stampin' UP! it is even easier as the packs all co-ordinate with our regular products.

Be sure to pop back tomorrow to see how we fill the bottom pocket.

Good Morning... and it's most definitely a 


Ciaden has been a little down with his Dad being away for so long but Pax the Elf seems to be helping. 

The look of pure amazement on his face says it all and I'm loving how easy it is to pop the picture into the days layout. 

Project life really is making this a fun adventure for us both. I'm loving the ease of putting it together daily and Caiden is loving the adventures and having something to show Daddy when he gets home.

I don't know why I left it so long!!!

Pop back tomorrow to see more of Pax's shenanigans!

Something New...

Starting something new can be quite daunting and that's just how I felt when I ordered my first Project Life kit from Stampin' UP! I have been a demo now for sometime and knew that the kits they put together would work but this was my first attempt at this type of memory keeping.

I have 'scrapbooked' over the years and recently completed an album for my Dad's 65th so why so nervous?
I can say now I honestly don't know. 

I decided to scrap the adventures of our new visitor PAX, the elf on the shelf. 
The beauty of this system of memory keeping is that you can prepare the pages ahead of time if you wish and just add details or you can do each page as you go.

I opted to put the pages together all at once and add pictures and journalling each day. 

Here is the opening page of our album and each day I will be sharing with you the adventures of Pax and my little boy Caiden. 

If you would like to know more about the products used or how to Project Life your own memories then please leave me a comment. 

Be sure to pop back tomorrow to see what Pax gets up to when he returns from his nightly visit to Santa to report on Caiden's behaviour!
