I apologise for the lack of posts...
Life has gotten in the way and crafting has yet again taken a back seat!
However as the end of Nevember approached I knew that this would have to change as the Stampin' Up! European Convention was approaching
and this year I was beside myself with excitement as it was held in Manchester!

Of course this meant that I would be able to save money and stay at home! and miss all the fun please!
Off the the Premier Inn Karyn and I went for three days of crafting heaven!

I decided that this year I was not going to take part in the general swaps as I didn't have the time - so I took part in the Julies Jems team gift swap...

I bought some notebooks and covered the front
As always on the last minute and I did not decide what I was going to do until the week before and I had to make 33 of them! LOL
I will never change - but still work well under pressure!
It was noted that I did not complete them until the EVENING as I was going to the hotel! HOORAH!

This first picture is me deciding the layout for the book

This second picture is the finished design...

Here they are piled up ready to be packed!

I have used...

top note die
world map stamp
flower shop stamp set 
matching punch
large perals
vintage buttons
moring post numbers

I hope you like the gift I made for the Julies Jems
I received some beautiful gifts in return and will share some of these with you another day!

thank you for visiting
