Mum & Dad

Yesterday I was at an all day training event with my Stampin' Up family. It was the first time I've been to one of these events & it was lovely to meet the other members of 'Julies Jems' in the flesh! What a lovely group & it was a pleasure spending the day with them.

We were asked to bring along a black & white photo for a scrapbook layout we were doing so I chose a picture of my mum & dad taken last summer.

We used the gorgeous new Springtime Vintage papers from the Mini Catalogue along with 12" x 12" cardstock in Crumbcake & Baja Breeze. I love this colour combination. The ribbon is the new Seam Binding in Rose Red & the chipboard letters have been given an overdose of bling with the stunning new Glass Glitter. Now I'm not usually a fan of glitter but this stuff is just fab & I managed to do this without making a mess.

The buttons are the new Big Designer Buttons threaded with the Seam Binding in Baja Breeze.

We also got to have a play with the Big Shot which is now available through Stampin' Up! & used some of the new dies & embossing folders.

On this project I've used one of the exclusive dies, yes you can only get this beauty through a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Fun Flowers. This die produces the most gorgeous BIG flowers which are idea for scrapbook pages but also look stunning on cards.

We made some lovely cards using the different dies & embossing folders available to use with the Big Shot which I will show you over the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by & for any comments you leave.
