New School

Monday 6th September 2010 
Our daughter, Rachael, starts at High School

Old Olive card

This colour is one of my favorites!  Old Olive from Stampin Up!.

Ingredients used:  
Very Vanilla Cardstock - Old Olive Cardstock - Old Olive Ink .
Backing paper (not sure which collection it belongs to)   
Oval Punch - Scalloped Oval Punch - Jumbo Wheel 'It's Beautiful' 
'Oval all' Message Stamp - 'One of a Kind' Stamp  - Old Olive Ribbon
Snail Glue and Dimensionals

I was only going to use items which are not retiring! but most of the stamps I already own are on the retirement list which made choice of stamps to use limiting for me, but there are lots of other stamps available from Stampin Up! which will make good replacements with a little adaptation the same effect can be achieved with other stamps and indeed other colours.  

Old Olive works well with Very Vanilla Rich Razzleberry or Cherry Cobbler for a more Christmas look, using a Christmas message and matching ribbon.

Stampin Up!

Well, have decided I am definitely going to sign up in October as a Demonstrator (Demo).  I am looking forward to seeing the new catalogue, which is due out on 1st October -  I am sure current Demo's will be showing us some samples to tempt us as they get to play with some of the new stuff before the launch.  I only know the catalogue will be bigger and better than before and featuring the new colour renovation as advertised.  I love the new colour collections they seem to be much more versatile and compliment each other nicely.

Cup Mat

Today I decided to use a cup mat I have had for ages and ages and  done nothing with!
I learnt today that my favourite Stampin Up! papers Bella Bleu paper set is being retired  (but I am sure I will find a new favourite in the new catalogue when it comes out in October)

For this cup mat, which is perspex,.you simply lay out the design inside and snap it shut encapsulating the papers inside.  I love this combination of colours so decided to make one for my craft table.  I have another empty mat so will do a similar thing with which ever paper set I fall in love with next!!
