Scrapbook Revisited

Hi All,

Sometime ago I promised you some photos of the scrapbook I'd designed for a hen party (only I'd forgotten to take my camera!)

Everyone had the same base layout pieces given, but could put their own twist on how they wished to embellish it. I'd made a few templates so that it wouldn't be too daunting for them, and they could copy if they wished. You can see the main post dated 13th June 2011

Unfortunately I'm not very computer literate and it won't let me upload some of the photos I've been sent, but these were the girl's favourite pages

I think you'll agree they were so creative considering only one person had crafted before.

I loved the number of combinations they came up with for a heart, and the twisting of the bird punch leaves into a tree is something I hadn't thought of before.

Hope they've inspired you to (and I'm sorry there's not more photos of their gorgeous creations)

Quick Cards!

Hi All,

A couple of quick and easy cards, they are both 9.5 cm square.
This one I did as a make 'n' take at a recent workshop, it's using the Circle Circus stamp set in Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and So Saffron.

The sentiment is from Party this Way.
I don't know about you, but I always feel I have to finish off the insert and the envelope too.

The other one is simply stamped with the hostess set Silhouette Sentiments and then punched out in squares. I have raised a couple of the designs on dimensionals (I don't think it shows up too well in the photo!)

Hope you've enjoyed,

Baby Blossoms Collection

Hi All,

Where has the time gone?
I created these with my 'Buddies' last month.........and have been too busy to blog. I've been volunteering here there and everywhere, along with crafting of course! Somethings were on such a tight schedule, I didn't even have time to take photos :( - sorry; and now the kids are off school.

Anyway, back to the projects, the colours I used were Pear Pizzazz, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette. The DSP and ribbon are old supplies (got to use them up, as there will be more come the end of September)...........and where am I going to put all the new ones.......LOL!!

There's a bookmark made out of wooden sticks............

..........a gift card holder and tag, using an envelope folded in half with the ends cut off.........

...........and 2 cards. The first using the 'Top Note' die, and the second is a step card with gorgeous organza ribbon.

Thanks for looking, I'll try and pop back soon..........if time allows
