More Love and Affection

The elements of the Love and Affection stamp set can be used to create this lovely round wreath shape. Lots of colours here but I wanted to use the new In-colors specifically Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim and Peekaboo Peach and my old favourite Mint Macaron too. This has been used to top a notebook, everyone needs a pretty notebook don't you think!

A week that ended well.

This week was a trying one, I guess we all have weeks like these at times. My youngest had respiratory difficulties and was admitted to hospital at the beginning of the week and after 2 nights on oxygen and lots of steroid treatment we finally got home on Wednesday evening. Her treatment continues while we wean down the steroids and attempt to get back to normality. Luckily things were improved enough for me to still run a class at a local community building for a small group wanting to have a dabble with Project Life on Friday evening. Only one of the ladies was familiar with Project Life, but they all embraced the concept and created a lovely first page using the Hello Lovely Stampin Up PL Card Collection and Accessory Pack. We also looked at the versatility of the cards and elements for card making and Mini books. I personally love this collection it's so sophisticated and stylish . The floral patterns and fonts lend themselves to so many occasions and the palette of soft blue, greens, oranges and black and white it's a classic timeless and elegant backdrop for your photos. Here I've used this collection to create a sample page used for the evening as a jumping off point for the PL newbies. A great Friday night a glass of wine some lovely company looking through photos of moments to treasure and using Project Life to celebrate the memories.
Then today I attended a lovely local Crop in Little Stoke for the first time. It's run by two lovely Sisters and I got to demonstrate a couple of Stamping Techniques for them and leave a few Catalogues for them to peruse. Hopefully by the time I left the idea of Stamping was a lot less scary than before, so mission accomplished!! I really nice creative and happy end to a week that did not begin too well.
