Balamory? Wouldn’t you like to know? Balamory was a tv programme my kids grew up with and the minute I saw the Coming Home Stamps I just knew I had to recreate this beautiful place. So What’s the Story ….?
Balamory ….. What’s the Story ….
Although Balamory is a fictional programme, the town is actually based on a gorgeous place called Tobermory Mull. There were amazing characters including Edie McCredie, Josie Jump, Miss Hoolie and so many more. My kids loved this programme and now my baby is expecting her own baby …..
So the idea for a pop up card and a 3d frame was born.
Coming Home is NOT just for Christmas. I am using this gorgeous stamp set and matching dies, together with the Trimming the Town DSP as my class for this Month. These adorable houses are so cute … what would you make to depict a story with these cute images….. What’s the Story ….
Working with these houses and colouring them with our blends has been very therapeutic and has given me some mindfulness. Something we all need these days.
Starting with the “whats the story …..” pop up card ……. including fish in the sea (courtesy of Whale Done stamp set) a conversation ensued and my daughter said “Bet you can’t make Balamory out of that!”
Never one to shy away from a challenge I set to work.
Here is the result…..
Whats more I showed you how to create this gorgeous pop up card in a facebook live yesterday. Make sure you check out the video below.
Whats the Story ….. frame
There are always 12 x 12 deep scrapbook frames in my stash. A girl never knows when she is going to need one of those. They make great gifts, whether containing a sampler, or something else.
In this case my version of Balamory …….
Brayering the sea and the sky, adding starts using our basic Rhinestones.

And of course I am going to love my new grand baby more than the ocean it was a no brainer to use the sentiment from Whale Done.
I have absolutely loved creating this project. And I am so proud that my Grandbaby has its first piece of nursery artwork, especially as I created it. You can order your kit for this month here…..
For the entire month of October. If you love the Trimming the Town DSP as much as I do, now is the time to stock up. There are many of Stampin Up’s great DSP’s on offer this month. I know I have stocked up so I can create more projects.
