Mixed Bunch

Anyone that knows me via Stampin' Up! will know that if I attend any training events I very very rarely do the make and takes at the time of the training.  I always bring them home and they never seem to get started let alone completed.  Well at the recent Leeds training I actually started on the kits and managed to make the card and the little milk carton, I left the scrapbook page until I got home.

The card was very simple  but effective.  I used the so saffron ink to ink around the flower to contrast with the card

Next came the milk carton which was made using Certainly Celery card and, whilst it doesn't use the stamp set, it uses the twitterpated papers from the designer series papers in the mini catalogue.  However, you could stamp around the main part of the milkcarton using the stamps if you wanted too.

Now a couple of days ago I decided I wanted to finish all  of the projects from Leeds so I got the scrapbook kit ready to go but couldn't find the instructions that went with them.   I know I bought the home with me but for the likes of me couldn't find them.  So I asked my upliner, Victoria, if she had a photo of the finished project and she did but hadn't uploaded it yet.   Being the impatient person I  am I then asked on In Love With Stamping if anyone else had the destructions or a picture they could share with me.  Luckily I got a quick reply from a lady called Nicola and she linked the information sheet for me.

Great I thought, I'm ready to go ....not.  A couple of things happened in my personal life that made it so I wasn't in the mood to craft, you know how it is don't you.   Anyway, I finally got the page finished and, whilst I still wasn't 100% committed to crafting I enjoyed doing it and felt better in myself as well.

The picture is of me and my daughters and was taken on 11 March 2012 my grandson's christening day.  If you haven't worked it out yet I'm the little short one in the  Both girls take after their dad for both height and being skinny, two things I can honestly say aren't me...hahaha  I'm not sure if you can see it close up but the top right and bottom left corners have been stamped with Baja Breeze with one of the large flower stamps from the Mixed Bunch set and a smaller one on the blue flower.

I think it is such a pretty but simple layout, I just love it.  Making these projects has steered me on to wanting to make all those that I brought home before but I have my nieces cards to do for the weekend so will concentrate on them first.  I've done one already but can't show it yet as she goes on FB and will see it so you are just going to have to wait  a little longer.

OK, take care folks and if you would like to leave a commnent I'd appreciate it and/or like my FB page via the link on the left hand side.
