Ink & Share Blog Hop #1

Hello fellow crafters,

I am very excited to be taking part in the first Ink & Share Blog Hop, an international skip around the world to see what demonstrators from all over are up to this month. If you've come directly to me, please do go look at the other blogs. If you've hopped in from Shirley, I'm sure you've been inspired by her beautiful creation and hope mine inspires you too.

This month we are featuring the goodies from the Stampin Up! Sale-a-bration leaflet. These items are all available free if you spend £45 or more from the Occasions and/or Annual Stampin Up! catalogues.  I've chosen to showcase something a little different to my usual cards or boxes.

I'm just starting to get back into my scrapbooking after a long break. I was sharing my craft space with the spare bedroom for a long time and it was difficult to find room to lay out all my photos. As 2 out of 3 of our kids have now left home, my dear husband converted the smallest bedroom into a craft room for me so I can at last indulge in an old favourite hobby again.



Starting with a 12x12 Whisper White, I dug out some retired dsp and Washi tape. I then die cut YOU and AMAZING from the Thinlets, mixing them with the matching stamp set. I finally used some of the vellum sprigs from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit

I used the Sweet Soiree Memories & More cards and also the Celebrate You Thinlets to create a wonderful memory for us of our cute little girl. She is now a mummy of three, the youngest being the same age as her in these photos ❤

Now, please do move on by clicking on the Next button, for more wonderful inspiration to tempt you to your craft table

Love, Peace & Happiness always
Karen xx
