More Creations to share.....

Here are my projects from a workshop that I did yesterday at Michelle's (hello ladies). The first card is from the set called inspired by nature and this was the thank you card that I demonstrated and gave to Michelle.

This is the card that the ladies made using the scallop edged punch and lots of folds to create a flower for their card....
This a diaper fold pocket that I used as a door prize with a set of two step stamps inside. Riding hood red ribbon and Bella Rose 6in X 6in was used to make this cute gift pocket.

So until next time.....

Smell the roses!!!!

I am hoping that come October, our wedding anniversary, I will have our wedding photos all scrapbooked. It has almost been 9 years since Andrew and I finally tie the knot. As you will see over the coming months both of our children were also part of the bridal party.
Here is one of the pages that I have finished, except for the journalling. That will come later.
We were very lucky with the photography, my uncle and step dad took all of the photos, around 300 of them.
Colours used were chocolate chip, baja breeze and whisper white.

There you have it, the first of many more to come. So until next time.....

Convention '09

I though I would share with you some of the make & takes that we made at convention. The first one is with one of the stamp sets I received at convention called TRENDY TREES and of course I could not help myself and changed the layout a bit.

This also is with the set trendy trees, the more and more I use this set, the more and more it grows on me.

The second set I received is called CIRCUS CIRCLES and just love it. Again me being me, changed the layout around a bit too...

I was sooo lucky to receive some many fantastic swaps to help the inspiration flowing, so if you can see your swap, let me know I would love to here from you.

There are still a few more that need to be posted next time. So until then, take care

Oh Baby!!!

Hello all, it seems like it has been yonks since I last blogged. I must try to be more active on the blogging side of things.

Since I posted last, I have been to CONVENTION !!! and had a real blast and met some of my fellow bloggers' in person. Hello Juliana. She is a real down to earth person, her mail boxes are awesome, check them out here http://julianasobsessions.blogspot.com/ .

Thanks to everyone for all the swaps, the amount of effort that some people went to was amazing. I will post some next time, so keep an eye out to see if we swapped!!!

My Mother in-law went to a baby shower today for her god daughter and this is the card that I made for her to give to Sally.

I used a template that I found on splitcoast stampers in the forum section and added five scallops cut off the scallop circle for each sleeve to resemble some frills. The centre of the scallop circle was punched out and attached to the collar of the jump suite along with three brads to look like closures.
I used my embossing folder to add texture to the jump suite and mounted the giraffe with dimensional.

The wild about you giraffe was stamped in so saffron, I then added some brads and highlighted the eyes, horns and tail in close to coco.

So until next time.....
