Scrapbook Page Birthdays...

Hi all,

I promised my ladies a his and hers birthday page each. I'm not sure if I delivered, although they all seemed very pleased with their outcome.

I think my focus drifted slightly and I got too involved creating a double page, which I actually love! I used photos of my lovely dad's 65th birthday, which we celebrated in Malta over a traditional Maltese dish - Rabbit!

Here is the double page:

Close up of each page.

This beautiful paper is part of the Patio Party Designer Series Paper. My background is Whisper White, however, I gave the ladies an option to choose their own background from all the colours that were in the Patio Party Set - Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.
If you would like to join us, our next scrapbook date is 18th June at Chelmver Village Hall, 7.30-9.30pm. I have 3 places left, so get in touch to book your place!
Please drop by soon as I will be having a competition for you!
Thanks for reading,

Recognise this?

Hi all,

I hope you are all enjoying today's sunshine, we did with a spot of gardening and it was such a lovely day that my Lily got to wear her special dress.

I haven't been paper crafting over the last few days but instead I've taken thread to needle (I made that one up!) and made a little dress for Lily. If you recognise where I got my inspiration from , please comment, I'd love to hear from you!

I'm in the middle of preparing Scrapbook Class for Tuesday, if you would like to join us, our next meeting is on the 18th June. I look forward to seeing you.
I will be sharing with you Part 2 of the Secret Garden Set tomorrow and watch this space as I have some very exciting Stampin' Up! news to share with you early next week.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

What a wonderful day of Crafting!

Hello reader,

Today I had my first all day craft event and some lovely ladies joined me to make 6 cards and a scrapbook page!

We met at a lovely hall in Boreham, it was so light and spacious and very quiet and relaxing!

Here are some pictures from the day...I hope to share the projects we made throughout the week.

This was a little bag I made for the lovely ladies so that they could put their finished cards in.

Unfortunately, the stamp set that was included in the day price was out of stock so I had to apologise for the delay, but it is on its way and they will be able to play with it on Wednesday!

I made some paper table decorations to brighten our table up - Claudia took some better pictures so will show you those over the next few days too!

Our big shot table and our crafting table!

How could I not show you a picture of our delicious lunch! Our cream cakes are missing from this pictures (keeping cool in the fridge for our afternoon tea! Yum).
The girls had a lovely day crafting, they had a few treats as well as a delicious lunch and tea/cake served on tap!
I will be in the process of organising my next all day event, so if you would like to be one of the first to find out, do get in touch, email me at
Thanks for dropping by, will be back with project photos,
until then enjoy the sunshine,
D xx
