These are just a couple of the pages:
At the back of the book I have put in some old photos of Mum when she was younger.
Thanks for looking,
So today I will show you some of the things I made for the show. I even decorated the inside of the cards, as you will see in some of the photos.
Firstly here are three Christmas cards, I really love the Delightful Decorations and Dasher, they are gorgeous stamp from Stampin' Up! and the matching Large Ornament punch makes creating gorgeous Christmas cards easy. The third card isn't Stampin' Up!, it's a stamp I have had for a long time.
This is inside the card above:
This next card I made using the hostess set "Cuter By The Inch" and it really is a cute set. I used Whisper White, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist colours, I think this combination looks crisp and fresh.
Just lately it seems I can't get enough of Butterflies! Don't you think these are gorgeous? There's hardly any stamping at all on this card. It uses Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla along with the 'Beautiful Butterflies' Bigz Die, 'Beautiful Wings' Embosslits Die and the 'Elegant Lines' Embossing folder. Add the Large Oval, Scalloped Oval and the Scallop Trim Border Punches and a couple of Stampin' Up!s gorgeous stick on Pearls and there you have it.
Oh look, another butterfly, this time it's on a lattice card that I cased from Valita.
This card was going to be a tri shutter card, but something went wrong, so I fiddled around and turned it into this. I was rather pleased with the results. Those flowers on the front were made with some of the packing paper that comes in a Stampin' Up! order.
The next two cards use the Baby Wipe method to colour the backgrounds. Fold up a baby wipe cloth and drip reinkers along the cloth then drag it (or in what ever direction you would like) across glossy cardstock.

This was the card I made for someone who purchased a gift voucher. I know the lady who received this was thrilled with such a thoughtful gift.
Next time someone asks what you would like for a birthday or Christmas why not suggest a voucher from me. That way you can choose exactly what you want from the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue. It only takes a phone call or an email to organise.
I am really loving this cute little owl and I'm sure you are going to see quite a lot of him/her around here. I used Early Espresso card and ink with the background stamp Woodgrain for the tree and the Best Wishes sign post. I used a scalloped circle and sponged Bashful Blue ink on Whisper White card to create the cloudy background. The crimper and paper snips were used for the grass.
Thank you for looking.
