July Jems Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Jems Blog Hop !

Firstly, I need to apologise for the lack of blog posts. No excuses, I've just been really busy and unfortunately the blog gets put on the 'tomorrow ' list - every day lol.
I can't see things changing for the next few weeks but after that I think things will settle down and I hope to get into a regular routine.

The theme for this month's hop is animals so of course I immediately reached for Baby Bear !
I teamed it with the easel stamp from Painter's Palette, another new favourite that I have lots of plans for....


Isn't she sweet ? And Sweet Sugarplum too. You may have noticed I've got a bit of a thing about making my own paper at the moment, this time I used the flower and leaf from the Jar of Love set. This set is so versatile and there are loads of lovely elements apart from the jars.


I haven't added a sentiment to this card yet, and it would make a very sweet baby card but I know a lovely little girl who has a birthday coming soon,

Today is also a sort of birthday/anniversary for me too as it was exactly 6 years ago today that I became a Stampin Up demonstrator. How time flies when you are having fun ! I can honestly say I am so glad I did - I still love all the gorgeous products but have also made some special friends, so a big thank you to Julie Kettlewell and all the Jems for all their support. 

If you have any questions about joining Stampin Up please get in touch, I would love you to join my team. Now, please continue the Hop and checkout all the inspiring projects from the other Jems




 Enjoy ! x
