Winter Holiday ~ Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the 4th in Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  I am delighted to be taking part  again.  We are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas with you.

You will have either arrived from  Karen’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month’s theme is  Winter Holiday  ~  I chose to do a SNOW DAY page which almost always turns out to be a winter holiday in North Texas as the local authorities are really not geared up to deal with really bad winter weather as we don’t get a lot of it but when we do it can be a doozy!

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Rooted in Nature ~Ink and Share Blog Hop


Today I am thrilled to be taking part  in the Ink & Share blog hop again.  You will have arrived from  Deb Naylor’s post.   This month’s theme is  Masculine  ~ I always find it so hard to create for the fellas – so I am looking forward to seeing what  the other contributors to this hop are going to share so I can get some more inspiration.

Today I have used the Rooted in Nature stamp set with the coordinating  Nature’s Roots Framelit Dies and taken on the challenge to make a never-ending card – there are lots of videos out there on this fold BUT they are all square and since here in the US we have to pay additional postage for a square card I have found a way to make this fold so that the card size is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and will fit in a regular envelope!

Today I am thrilled to be taking part  in the Ink & Share blog hop again.  You will have arrived from Rebecca-Jo Unwin’s post.   This month’s theme is  Summer ~ I really thought about this  and recall family holiday’s when we were children in North Devon in the UK, there was a particular beach, Putsborough Sands, that had wonderful sand and you could walk into the sea for ages before it got too deep.

It bought back such happy memories that I decided that my summer card would feature a beach with a comfy chair where you can take time to just watch the world go by.
