Busy Busy!!!

Gosh where have the weeks gone? I just seem to get lost in my workload and don't find time to blog what I am up to. Well here is the low down on basically what I have been doing. Next week I am off to a Stampin' Up! convention. So that means making loads of swaps. I will show them later as I know a few peeps read my blog, when I do blog, lol. So I have had my working head down and been crafting non stop for about the last three weeks. I do have something I can share with you today though.

Now what is it you ask. Well my lovelies, its a mini calendar book. It measures 3 x 3 inches and can quite easily be carried in your handbag. Now this isn't at all my idea, one of the very talented ladies from PTI made one and I just had to have a go. If you do a search for Lisa Johnson or poppypaperie typepad you should be able to locate all the instructions on how to make it.  Now when I received my stash from across the pond I only ordered one calendar, DUH!, I know I want more but can't justify the postage for more right now, so I had a go at making some of my own. This is what the inside looks like

I have used a mixture of PTI and Stampin' Up! I just so love the designer papers from SU, I am actually using them instead of stroking them and putting them back. I hope you enjoy what I have to share. Don't forget if you want to order anything from Stampin' Up! you know where I am. We take credit cards now, what a BIG bonus. Until later Happy Papercrafting.

******STOP PRESS, STOP PRESS********

Woohooo, the new catalogue has now gone live and I can tell you, you are just sooooo going to love it. AS well as all the new Colour changes there are some new fabby punches, as well as the scrummy new ribbons.
PLUS gorgeous papers and also some wonderful stamp sets.
There is also an extra PLUS side to the stamps, most sets now come in clear mount. Which means NO MORE WOODEN BLOCKS, yeah!
I would just like to clarify the clear mounts are not what you think. They are still the same rubber and gray foam but they cling to acrylic blocks. Stampin' Up! wanted them this way so that they don't loose any quality to the stamps. For those of you who have them, will know just what I mean by the quality.
If you haven't yet purchased anything from Stampin' Up! and would like to know more about the products or even see them in action. Please get in touch.
If you would like to view the online catalogue please click on the link to the left (catalogue picture) it will take you right there.
