Hello lovelies, hope you are warm and happy and enjoying the school holidays (if you are in Victoria). Mine got off to a bit of a shaky start with being unwell for a few days but I am back on my feet and raring to go again now. My husband has taken the day off to spend with the boys today, so they are off out and about while I get some work done, and get to do some creating with my gorgeous stamping friends tonight.
Wanted to show you a couple of things I've made over the last few weeks. First up this page of the lovely Keesh. I really liked this photo of us from the Incentive Trip in Noosa last year, and have wanted to scrap it for a while. I love how it turned out and it's a great addition to my friends album!
I've used a range of products on this one, including Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Vogue stamp set, and butterfly punch. I love using this punch with patterned paper to match the pages I am doing.
Next up I have been having a play with the Urban Oasis DSP. I forgot how much I loved using this paper with Kraft, and how much I loved white embossing on Kraft! This one uses Stampin' Up! Starring You and the Stampin' Up! Large Star and Star Punch.
This one is a mix of embellishments which match the colours in the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Urban Oasis DSP; Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Going Gray and Sahara Sand.
Wanted to show you a close up of the Soho Designer Hardware (from the current mini) as it's a great match for this DSP. These are light weight and so easy to set flat using the Cropadile. Love the dimension they give a project.
I'm also LOVING the Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags set, and how you can layer the stamps and punch them out using the Stampin' Up! Medium Jewellry Punch, and Small Heart Punch.
The great news is, Stampin' Up! have just announced a GREAT special of 20% off a range of 2 step stamping sets, including Tiny Tags - woohoo! Here's a list of what's on special for the month of July.

Phew, if you got this far you might be ready for a cuppa! Just a couple more things. Firstly it's time for Ferdinand to show his friendly froggy face again as it's nearly time for another Art with Heart Blog Hop. Here's the details from Ferdinand:
Lastly just a little family snap for you. I've had a fun couple of days with the kids this week. Josh has been getting into his music, and yesterday I offered to take some pics of 2 babies from my school Mum friends. They were so cute and it was so nice to be able to do that for them. Besides the babies there were 5 big kids who managed to have an impromptu disco in paul's office (who luckily was at work) while Josh played them music videos. I think I should add DJ to his list of skills! As I was typing this message, Paul sent me this pic by email that he took on his phone at the Spongebob show he took them to today. They LOVE Patrick and Spongebob. Makes me happy this little family of mine.
Hope you are having a good week, back Saturday with by blog hop creation!
