My friend recently became a Grandma, this the the album I made for her beautiful grand daughter Chloe. It's very similar to the baby boy album I showed you the other day.

A Baby Boy Photo Album

I've recently made a couple of baby photo albums with some of my retired Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper. This is the Baby Boy one. I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out. There's room for some photos to be added and space for a bit of journaling, some of it hidden on pull out tags and some on show. The back page has a pocket, so extra photos can be popped in there. I've also made one for a baby girl, which I will show you soon.

Colour Me Your Colour......

I've got the Blondie song buzzing round my head now.

Stampin' Up! have announced that they are making some changes to our colour families. Some colours will retire and be replaced with some lovely new ones. Some you will be sad to see go, but I'm sure you will be delighted with the new ones. I know that I'm excited about the new colours coming our way.
I'm sure that you will recognise one or two of the "new" colours, as having been previous or even current "In Colors".

So the important thing to tell you is - from today 4th April, all products that are available in the retiring colours, will only be available while stocks last. This could be card stock, ribbon, ink, papers, buttons etc. If you have a favourite, please get it/them while you can to avoid disappointment.

The retiring colours are

Regal Rose

Pretty In Pink

Bashful Blue

Certainly Celery

Baja Breeze

Riding Hood Red

Bravo Burgundy

Not Quite Navy

More Mustard

River Rock

Of course, Lucky Limeade will also go as this is one of the "In Colors" due to retire this year.

Please contact me asap if you would like to stock up on any of these items before they go.

The new colours will be available from 1st July 2013.

Card Class

My next card class will be on Saturday 18th May 1pm - 3.30pm, in Bingham, Nottinghamshire. With Father's Day on the horizon, we'll focus on some cards for the men in our lives. The cost is £15 which includes the materials and refreshments (payable in advance) I hope you can join me.

The Return of the Petite Curly Label Punch

Yes, the Petite Curly Label Punch that was in the Sale-A-Bration brochure is now available to purchase. It is available right the way through to 30th June and will be in the new 2013-2014 annual catalogue.

I've used the punch here, with one of the stamp sets that were available during Sale-A-Bration. But, the good news is that there are stamps that match this punch and the ⅞" Scallop Circle Punch (129404) in Spring/Summer catalogue. They are on page 16 and are called Ciao, Baby! 129645(w) and 129648 (c). They are a cute way to add a little sentiment to your cards or scrapbook pages.
