Farewell to the 2017-2019 In Colours using First Frost & Country Road

It’s always sad to say goodbye to the retiring In Colours, but I have truly LOVED the 2017-19 In Colours. They are without a doubt, my favorite since becoming an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in 2016.

I wanted to showcase those gorgeous colours one last time before they are gone for good next month, and love the way they look here, paired with Basic Grey.

As soon as I saw Country Home in the catalogue, I thought it would make a great masculine card. But here, I have turned that idea on its head with the addition instead of those stunning floral images from First Frost.

This stamp set is simply gorgeous! I can’t wait to try out more ideas with it.

For now, it’s a fond farewell to the stunning Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide & Fresh Fig 😥. Soon to be gone, but never to be forgotten 😉 xx

Our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary Scrapbook Page using the Frosted Floral Suite

I hope you are all enjoying the festivities of the season and the final countdown to Christmas – can you believe it is just 1 week away??! I feel totally unprepared but somehow the tree is up, the presents are wrapped and the cards have all been sent! I’ve no idea how it all got done but I’m so glad everything appears to be on schedule for now.

Today is a very special day for my husband Ben and I as we are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. Christmas has always been my favourite time of year so it seemed fitting to have a wedding to match. Some people say their wedding day is a bit of a blur, but I remember every detail of my wedding as though it happened yesterday. In fact, I can’t understand where the last 10 years have gone!

I wanted to make a 10 year anniversary scrapbook page to mark this milestone in our lives – the photos are of us then and now. And the Frosted Floral suite was the perfect way to adorn the page. I have loved using every part of this gorgeous suite.

The great news is the First Frost stamp and die set will carry over to the next catalogue, but I will miss this beautiful Frosted Floral DSP so much. The colours of our wedding were red and gold for Christmas, so I used merry merlot for the mat layers and champagne foil as my chosen metallic foil paper. Gray Granite is prominent in the DSP and with the black and white photos, I thought champagne would be perfect with its warmer grey tones.

Of course, no scrapbook page (or any page for that matter) would be complete without a little Joyous Noel tranquil tide glimmer paper. I rarely buy products when they are retiring. but I must admit to stocking up on another pack of this stunning paper!

A lot has changed for us over the past 10 years – people have come into and gone out of our lives. The most important newcomer has been our gorgeous little boy Grayson who is now 20 months old. We feel so blessed to have him. Times have been testing, but our love for one another remains just the same.

Frosted Floral Gift Tags

I love the entire Frosted Floral Suite so making a set of Christmas tags using this beautiful set was a must!

I wanted to keep the colours and design of these tags less traditional and more feminine, whilst still being easy to replicate.

I opted for a rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss and gorgeous grape colour way, set against either a galvanized metallic or sparkle glimmer stitched circle.

I added a subtle silver foil sprig for some interest, and those boxwood wreath embellishments just pop against the tags. The iridescent wreath is currently on sale while stocks last so click on the picture of them below to go straight to my online shop!

Love the simplicity and winter berry colours of these tags, hope you do too xx
