I ve completed a layout

I know you d probably be as shocked as I am but i have actually made a scrapbook layout in my preparation for a workshop that Anna has hosted last night. It was a fabulos night, the ladies were all seasoned crafters so they ve sailed throught the make and take I ve designed, and managed to bag themselves a great range of Su stamps and goodies. It was such a succesful workshop, Anna s hostess benefits were two free sets of stamps and £60.00 worth of free merchandise ( she got some great benefits), Anna thanks for having me and thanks to all the girls for coming, waves and hugs to you all. And sI ve also met the gorgeous Avril who is a total virgin as far as stamping goes and she s ordered the fabulos carmaking kit *Happy Day* and I cannot wait to see how she gets on with some paper, rubber and ink, Avril already makes beautiful intricate works of art cos she loves to cross stich( Man I wish i could do that as i love the effect). So Avril if you re reading this, I would love to see what you ve come up with.
Ok so i d better show you the page, my subject is of course my delicious little nephew Luca ( love this little boy so much ahhh )





Everything on here is from SU, I was talking with the girls last night and altho most of them were primarily cardmakers they did scrapbooking as well , but they seemed to have started with cardmaking wich is where I ve started, so I ve explained how when I ve finally got scrabooking I never asociated it with stamping, it was more on the waves of patterned papers chipboard, ribbons, buttons and all of the accents but since I ve joined SU I m starting to see scrapbooking in a whole new light, so I ve tried it here, I ve used nothing but stamps with very little patterened paper, and you know what? I really like how it turned up. Used that little cute giraffe form the *bundle Of Joy* and the complete set called *Little Pieces* that I ve punched out and stuck with 3 d pads. Colours used throughout were Alaways artichoke, Bashful blue, So saffron and Choc. chip.

I ve made another criss cross card, and I ve made it just cos I wanted to use my cutie pie papers.


Easy peasy and so colourful. Used the * In the spotlight* hostess set with a jumbo eyelet and a rhinestone brad, makes the whole thing look very blingy. used So saffron cardstock, rose red and certainly celery inks, here s the inside of the card

Sentiment for the *Sincere Salutations* set

Right i m off cause I m in work tmmrw. morning so need to catch up on some sleep. Hugs to you all. See ya!!!!

Shop Stampin' Up!

Beautiful layout Monica! I know exactly what you mean about scrapbooking - stamps are perfect for it but it's so difficult to get past all the other stuff out there!
