A Blast from the Past!

This is going to be a fantastic week readers!!! I have 3 stampin’ events and will be blogging about all of the projects we will be working on J For now here is my Friday Mashup Challenge. I was unable to make the post for last week due to very busy work schedule (but I plan to complete that challenge also as the theme was something I was really interested in doing!!!).

This week we were asked to use a Belly Band for the first part of the challenge and if we wished to add some twine. I have to admit I had to dig into the vault for this project as I mentioned work has kept me quite busy and I didn’t want to miss out on another week!

This is a project I made with my Stampers Club. When Beyond the Garden (a Stampin’ UP! dsp) came out in the summer mini I could not wait to use it as this colour palate is soo me! In the same mini they released colour embossing powders to coordinate and I was sold, add to that a fantastic stamp set (Fabulous Florets) and it doesn’t get any better than that!

My Challenge:

1.            Make a project featuring "A Belly Band".

2.            Or Make a project using "Twine".

3.            Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Using Twine with a "Belly Band".*

My Project:

Tiny Tips:
Ever get finger prints on your embossed projects? When heat embossing an easy way to eliminate such a problem is to use the Embossing Buddy sold by Stampin’ UP! Initially I did not as I was not sure what it was for really but after learning from another demonstrator and seeing the results for myself it made it to my MUST HAVE list!  
 Thanks for stopping by!  


  1. Hi Hayley, Thanks for joining us again this week. Your project is fabulous, I love that it's small enough to fit neatly into a handbag but holds lots of pics like a brag book!

  2. Yay Hayley is in the house!!! This is gorgeous I love how those flowers came out!!! I love my embossing buddy, I actually cut mine open and put it in a container... I slide my project in and tap off the excess then any left over I clean up with a dryer sheet.. Helps give better coverage faster and you can use the tiniest piece of paper with it. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup this week!

  3. Oh, what a cute album! Bet your club girls loved it! Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
