Happy birthday Rebel Stampers

I thought I'd start a new thread for this as Becky said that it will be our birthday in about 6 weeks - where has the time gone? After I made the journal page last year I looked back to see how we'd celebrated our birthdays.

2011 1st birthday - ATCs
2012 2nd birthday - a pair of ATCs
2013 3rd birthday - wee book
2014 4th birthday - journal page
We seemed to think that last year was our 5th birthday!  

Any ideas for celebrating this birthday? I enjoyed doing the journal page and wondered if we could do another one on a different topic eg time
Margaret
Mickie

Thank you for starting us off Margaret.  Five years, can you believe it? Cool  

A journal page sounds good to me but as always I'm happy to go along with the majority vote
vonny

good idea Margaret. journal page would be good and time seems a relevant theme -or we could keep the theme and open it up to being used for any item for those who don't journal e.g. ATC/tag/card ?
Beckyb

A great idea Margaret I am up for it there was talk about doing a circle book again but think we were waiting till Sept when Sarah is back living in England.Can't believe we are going to be 5 and I must say it been nicer here than at SSP Guild wonder how that is going but it means we have known each other for 8+ years. x
vonny

I was wondering about the book -I wasn't aware that Sarah was due back in Sept -I just knew she was coming some time! Would be good to do one of these...but the birthday make should be separate I think
margaret rorie

I agree Vonny it will be good to do another circle book but should be separate from the birthday make. Like your idea of one theme which you can use on a card, ATC, journal page etc
Jennie

Yes I think Sarah was due back sometime late summer and another circle book would be good.  A journal page sounds good and the passing of time quite appropriate!
Mickie

When should we post a photo of our journal page celebrating our birthday?  Be super if we could all do it on the same day
vonny

not sure we have totally decided what we are doing or the theme? Would be good to try and do it on the same day but the same week may be more realistic?
Beckyb

Well I am up for a journal page x
vonny

me too as I haven't done one for ages. just not sure that everyone journals?
Jennie

I am up for a journal page  Very Happy Not too soon date as I am only managing 30 mins at a time in the craft room and only if I can get Terry to put everything I need on my desk - not easy - Terry that is  Laughing
Mickie

Laughing  Laughing Jennie

Look forward to final decision Laughing
vonny

I think it would be hard to think of everything -I would be half way through then need something. At least you can do a bit tho
margaret rorie

I'm happy to do a journal page too. Will we set a deadline for completing this? Margaret
vonny

I think we need that Margaret .
Mickie

Definitely  Wink
Beckyb

Right I will take control what about 1st of Oct that give everyone 6 weeks. x
Mickie

Done.  Thanks Becky
margaret rorie

Good for you Becky - that date's fine. Are we going with the theme of time or leaving it open? Margaret
Jennie

Thtats great for me! yes a theme ?
Mickie

As Becky pointed out, we have known each other for over eight years now so a theme of Time might be appropriate?
vonny

well done Becky -don't let the power go to your head tho  Laughing
Yes 1st Oct seems good as is a theme of time and a journal page.  Smile
Beckyb

I thought someone had suggested Time so it that is ok with everyone we can do that.

So a journal page theme being Time to be completed by 1st Oct.
   Have fun x
Mickie

Thanks Becky  Laughing
Jennie

vonny

Beckyb

Well done Vonny - A4 seems huge compared with my usual A5 Laughing  Will have to get a move on and do my pages - only just started to think about design Rolling Eyes

Love your birds, are they stamps or did you draw them?
margaret rorie

Well done Vonny!  Great journal pages - I haven't even started thinking about mine.
vonny

the birds are a stamp that features three in a row so I just cut out the ones I wanted! The background started as the leftover inkings from a Gelli plate session -i like the orange wavy lines with the circle by them which just happen to look like a book mark. When I do A5 again it is going to seem small, tho I often do a double page which makes it nearer A4  Smile
Jennie

Oh I didn't realise we were posting yet. Super page Vonny - yes I love the birds too. Mine is finished:

My page is just A5 so well done on an A4 Vonny. Although I suppose a double page spread is A4! .
Mickie

Lovely page Jennie  I do like that soft colour effect that you have made your own.

Vonny, you will find A5 small when you come to do one - your two A4 pages actually make an A3 Laughing  

Have just had a glimmer of an idea for my page - might have to sit in a darkened room for a while Laughing
margaret rorie

A beautiful page, Jennie - love the colours.
Beckyb

Great pages I thought we were waiting till October to show our pages 😀😀  x
margaret rorie

I will be waiting for October as I won't get it done before then. Margaret
Mickie

The rate at which paint dries at the moment mine will definitely not be ready until October  Laughing
Beckyb
