UKS March Challenges

For the following UKS challenges I have used nothing but Stampin Up products! In a few weeks time I am attending a training session and I need to display some of my working showcasing the 'More Amore' papers.
March week 2 was to follow a sketch, use stamps, buttons and ribbon/trim. These are photos of my friends Gemma and Tom who got married in September.
March week 3 was to scrap a building/place/object (not a person), 3 photos (one being a 4x6), and a creative title.  I have scrapped photos of Lulworth cove from September, and my title was cut using my Cricut, something I don't get out often enough!! 
The cute little pinwheels are a sizzix die!
Another LO using the same papers but this is a scraplift from a LO I found ages ago by Melinda Spinks - her blog is here
I have covered circles of card in DST and the made these ribbon flowers.  This photo was taken by Jack back in 2007 when we went to Legoland, a photo of me and Sam in the April sunshine....yes we did have warm sunshine in April once!!! Hoping it warms up here soon!

UKS Challenges

Monthly challenge - using the colour scheme below for inspiration.

A gorgeous pic of my Jack at the beach - a few years ago now!

The weekly challenge - to use the UKS gallery as inspiration - choose a letter of the alphabet - I choose 'R'. Scraplift a page, choose a different page for the colour scheme, and choose a different page for a technique. Here is my page - of my gorgeous Sam, taken back in 2006 - lots of Prima swirls and flowers!  People always ask me about using flowers and butterflies with boys pages - well I love butterflies so just have to use them, seeing as I have two boys they just have to have butterflies on their pages!!
I choose the neutral colours from a page in the gallery (RetiredNana), the use of pins, I use pins on cards but rarely use them on pages (Ria979902). 

This was the page I scraplifted - one of my favourite scrappers - Rachael Elliott - you can see her blog here

30 second card!

When you need to make a quick 'New Home' card - 30 secs is all it took - a little bit of stamping, inking, ripping and cutting and job done!

Birthday Pages!

Seeing as this little boy will be 12 next month I thought I better get on and finish doing some of his 11th Birthday photos!  Just look at the sheer joy on his face - he was overjoyed at getting Bullseye and Flynn Rider - two characters from his favourite Disney films!
I have used some old Basic Grey papers - Life of the party - some of my favourite papers - especially for bright birthday photos!
Same papers and an added bit of Prima bling!

A round page to show off his fabby 'Monster' cupcakes!
Complete with a stitched title and fabric buttons! The cupcake one is from one of my friends Susi - she has a fab store on Etsy

More Cards!

February has been a busy card making month for me - Birthdays and a couple of leaving cards for work!  These are all 8 x 8 cards and I have use papers and embellishments left over from MCS kits.  All the images are pre coloured images from Lili of the Valley.  They are perfect for me, I so wish I had the time to colour in my images - but I just don't any more! :-(  Most of the flowers are Prima (as are the pearls and bling). Sentiments are Stampin Up and Butterflies are from Kay, I just love butterflies - at the moment they are on every card and page - I just can't resist them!!
 A Birthday Card for one of my Best Friends - she keeps all my cards and I have to improve on them every year!
 A Hugs and Kisses card for a friend who wanted to give it to her daughter for doing so well in a singing competition!

 A Good Luck card for a work colleague moving on! 

I also realized I forgot to upload the card I made for my Mum for her Birthday!
