OMG Sneak Peak Heaven

I just went on the Kaiserkraft blog there and they have up these sneak peaks of their Q3 ranges and I have got too say I think these could be my faves off all their papers yet, I seriously could not choose one of the six as a favourite they are all just beautiful. They seem to have changed the format of

their releases as previously they released the full 6 ranges straight off , where as this time they are doing 2 each per month which i actually like as it means I'm not off rushing to get them all at same time, though its going to kill me having to wait probably. This is the first Quarter that i have wanted each of the 6 different ranges , honestly i love them all.... Liz get your stock ready, I'm going to be nocking your door on release day lol

Here are the range names and release month

Picture 1 - Made with Love - January release
Picture 2 - Devonshire - February release
Picture 3 - Shaken not stirred - January release
Picture 4 - La Di Da - February release
Picture 5 - Gypsy Sisters - March release
Picture 6 - Peachy Keen - March release

How excited am I , how will I wait for these lol

T'was the night before Christmas

Stole this poem from Sharlene as it's so funny

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree. I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me. Could it be cardstock, or inkpads, or lace? Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face. And that's when I heard him ... "Hi Santa, " I said He replied, "You know ... good girls should be in their beds". "I know I should Santa, and now I've been caught. But I was just so excited to see what you brought." "Well, let's take a look in this room where you work". He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk. I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear. "You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!"

Summer Launch Night

Well I made it over to a friends Stampin up Workshop last night for a launch of the summer mini that just came out on Dec 1st. I had a really fab night and made some cool stuff oh yea and bought some cool stuff too. Though I must add that I was really good and stuck to what I had to spend in my purse and not a cent more. The good this is there is 3 months to buy everything in it that I would love. Think I may have to have that awesome circle cutter, wow so easy to use. Any way i bought 2 lovely packs of buttons , some sweet treat cups and a white pen for highlighting some of my layouts (the sweet treats are used in the friendship card in the picture and I am looking forward to using them). Anyway if you like what we made last night you have to go look at Sharlene's blog , her stuff is just fab

Got to say hi to the nice ladies I met too , was lovely meeting you and I'm sure I shall see you at stamp club soon

Angel of Mine

Well My parcel from Liz over at finally arrived yesterday so I got working on a layout using the fab Lilac Avenue range from Kaiserkraft straight away. Got to say I love the 6x6 pads that they are doing now, this is what I used for my title and it saved me having to cut up a 12x12 just for the title. I can see lots of layout getting made from this range. Hope you like it Liz.
