Delightful Daisy 3D Paper Flower Project

Stampin’ Up! (c) – Design by Michelle Mills – UK Independent Demonstrator

IMG_5916

Spring has sprung and it finally feels like summer may just be on its way! I really love to have fresh cut flowers around my home but it appears that this year I have been hit with a really bad case of hay fever so I am relying on wax melts and paper flowers to decorate and perfume my house!

I really do love the daisy punch and matching stamp set so last night I set about making myself a cute little daisy display, I chose to make this one in whisper white and pool party but I’m thinking this would look amazing in really bright and bold colours too.

I added the water beads in the bottom just for effect and to give the daisies different heights.

1 Sheet Trinket Box : New Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy DSP : Teamie Tuesday : Summer

A whole week has gone by since the last teamie tuesday and it definitely feels more summer-esq than it did a week ago so this weeks theme “Summer” feels very fitting.

I decided to make this wee little trinket box which has a multitude of uses, I stumbled on the idea a while ago and have several of them on my desk, holding all types of items from paper clips to die cuts and ink pads. I find them the perfect size to hold embellishments whilst I’m crafting but they can also be used as little gift boxes.

Product Ingredients:

  • Bone Folder – 102300
  • Delightful Daisy DSP (Available June 1st) – 144137

Planner Girls Collective : Scrapbooking Tips : Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up!

This week for the Planner Girls Collective blog hop we are discussing “Scrapbooking Tips”… now I honestly could write a book on tips and tricks and things I have learnt but that would be how I like to do things and would be MY style!

At the weekend I attended the ScotCon event and we heard the lovely Anna Brim (MrsBrimble) talk about creative journalling. In her speech she spoke of how anyone can creative journal and what we thought the term meant.. most people agreed that creative journalling, art journalling, scrapbooking, pocket scrapbooking and memory planning where all forms of memory keeping and everyone has different styles of each.

She encouraged us to put pen to paper and just to create, to not be afraid of running anything and to believe in yourself, you don’t have to be the best but anything you produce will be yours and if you are not totally happy then you don’t have to show or share it with anyone..

So how does Anna feature with this weeks topic? Well.. every single thing that Anna spoke of about Creative Journalling can be applied to scrapbooking! The whole purpose is to record your memories and you should never be afraid to start.. Journalling cards and pocket page scrapbooking is a really simple place to start, it can be as simple choosing the pre designed cards and slotting them into the pockets along with your photos and journalling.. the most important thing to remember is that it is your album and you can never, ever ruin it!

I love memory keeping!

Easy Traveler’s Notebook planner pocket insert : New Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy!

I am a true planner girl at heart but to be honest I don’t really do the decorating on the inside of my pages… I like a bit of wash tape and a couple of stickers but I can’t focus when I have a full page layout.. so I like my planners to be pretty on the outside, with functional decoration!

My a6 Ugly Dori has had the same internal decoration for about 6 weeks now and I really fancied a change.. as I am preparing for a big event this weekend I didn’t have the time to laminate all my dividers and I wanted something that was going to be functional to store receipts.

Planner Girls Collective : Creative Journalling

As much as I wanted to journal today about our recent trip to the Harry Potter Studios I really wanted to get this page in my journal finished too.. My bestie had a baby a couple of weeks ago and I am totally smitten with him.. he is a tiny dot and I swear I feel my uterus do a little dance whenever I see him!! A few hours after he was born Eadie and I were lucky enough to go and visit them in the hospital and that is where we fell head over heels with him!

I used my new LG pocket printer to print the small photo, I love it as it is adhesive paper which makes using it on the go a real delight.

Stampin’ Up! Unboxing/Haul – First look at new 2017-2018 catalogue products

There is nothing quite like the UPS man dropping off a big brown box full of goodies but it’s even better when it’s a box full of brand new product lines that I’ve been itching to get my grubby little paws on!

As a demonstrator we are allowed to order certain items before the catalogue is released in June and I decided to film what I had ordered so that you guys can have a look at some of the beautiful new products that will be available to you on June 1st.

I also received my copy of the new annual catalogue and it is jam packed with amazing-ness, my wish list is already as long as my arm!! If you’d like a copy of the catalogue you can fill in this form and I will pop one in the post to you late next week!

I’ve already completed a few projects and there will be many more in the next few weeks, for now you can view the unboxing HERE!

Planner Girls Collective : Monthly overview

I absolutely cannot get my head around planners that start their week on a Sunday, for me it just does not work! I like to sit down on a Monday and plan what I have coming up that week and to see two beautifully empty boxes at the weekend.

Erin Condren always start their week on a Sunday so as soon as mine hits my door mat I change the every month to a Monday start, it is a bit of a labour of love in that I have to not only cover the days but also change all the dates with date dots.. but once it’s done it’s perfect!

The only planner that I use the monthly feature in is my Erin Condren, It’s the first place that I schedule appointments in and is the first place I check to see what is coming up!

I also use it to track my bills and when I am due a payment, the notes bar to the right of the page has a list of all my direct debits and if they are coming out of my personal or business account (I do this with colour coding), in the box for the corresponding date I use a small circle in red to represent a bill and green for money coming in! 

The benefit for me to organise my finances like this is that I can see straight away what is due in the current week, I tick off each bill as it leaves my bank which really helps me to balance my books and make sure there is always sufficient money in each account!
