Stampin up retreat bank holiday weekend

 Hello there folks - at last I can show you the Stampin up retreat weekend makes.
 Saturday was my project day - I had found these cute little mini albums in Tescos sale sp made a full day scrapbook project
 There were 24 pages in all - 12 double sided pieces with spaces for photographs.
 All the materials were in the attendees kit so they could add or change as they wished.
Here is just 6 of the 24 pages - wont bore you with them all !

 On Saturday night we decorated a wooden hanger. Those roof tiles were a labout of love - all that inking and punching!

On Sunday we made this - a decorated box frame with my lovely upline Emma Daye. I loved the project and really enjoyed the weekend.
Who knows we may be doing it all again next year too!

Thanks for stopping by x Janet x

Christmas gifts - Its never too early!

It was my evening craft session last Tuesday which has been running 8 years in August - I have made some wonderful friends through this evening session - it so relaxed and we have such a laugh.
I just grabbed these 2 scented candle jars to decorate for this session - so a nice and gentle project however I forgot my little tool bag - so I finished them off today at home.

 I have used a little Molly Bloom stamp for the character and some of the ribbons and buttons from the Molly Blooms Christmas mag from December 2012.
 They are slightly different but this wont matter as they are for 2 different gifts.

The lid has been decorated too and I may even make boxes to present them in - although i do have some rather cute mini brown bags which would be lovely as well - still as Christmas is a month or two away plenty of time to decide!
I wonder if you can guess the fragrance?

Busy with top secret stuff as the stampin up retreat is nearly here - in just 2 weeks we will be having fun playing with new stash and some fun projects - so I may be quiet for a little while but then have tons to show you!

Thanks for saying hello
Take care and have fun crafting x
