Baby Shower

Chelsey (and Sam) had a baby shower for their expected arrival in the next few weeks.
ere is the card I made for them.

I used a old Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp I have had a while now,
and coloured her with my Promarkers.
I glossed those big eyes with Glossy Accents.
The patterned paper is from Crafter's Companion
Ribbon roses and ribbon from my stash
Fern punch from Martha Stewart
'Baby Shower' die from Crafter's Companion
Sequins by Pink Paislee
 A little glitter was added with Stickles

Good luck Chelsey - looking forward to hear of your new baby.

Christmas Countdown!

I'm all ready for the beginning of December with this Advent Calendar I made for this month's Design Team post on the Papermaze Blog.

I have been having fun with the Bo Bunny - Christmas Carousel collection, and an idea for counting down to the big day. The delightful papers have some lovely images in soft shades of pink, yellow, green and blue. For my first Christmas project this year, I have created an Advent Calendar, each day revealing memories from previous years in the form a tiny photograph.

Please see the Papermaze Blog to see how I made the calendar.
Thanks for looking
Enjoy the countdown to Christmas.

The first layout I have created with a photo from my daughter Emily's marriage to Jack in October. This layout was designed by Vanessa at Papermaze and was the crop kit from September's Crop.

This photo shows Catherine and Emily getting ready for the wedding, with a little help from Snapchat to complete the autumnal wedding theme! They are wearing the housecoats Catherine brought back from her trip to Singapore last year, making the photo perfect for these colours.

The layout was created with ....
Distress Oxide Inks
American Crafts - Oh Happy Life collection
Simple Stories - Sunshine and Happiness
Pebbles - Simple Life
White Bazzill
Twine, Prima Flowers, circle punch, tropical leaf die,
I added a JOFY flower stamp & some Enamel Accents.

Great, colourful fun!

More Storage for Sizzix Dies

A variation on a theme from me today, another Sizzix folder based on the same idea as before, but showing how you can change the theme to anything you want it to be. I have made this one to store my floral dies, and my other one was based on a masculine theme. This was my post for the Papermaze Blog - Scrap, Paper, Scissors this month, please see the blog for the details of how it was made.


I has fun making this folder with these beautiful papers.
Now to work out different measurements for my other dies!
Thanks for looking.

Cards For The Boys

Today I'm sharing a set of cards for the boys - especially Dad's, using the Kaisercraft, Factory 42 paper pad. This was my latest project for the Papermaze - Scrap Paper Scissors blog. Please check the blog for details.

There are plenty of papers in the pad and I mixed and matched them with other elements from my stash. I'm often short of mens cards, so this was a great opportunity to make a few in advance.


After making all these cards, the layout and the Sizzix binder I still have plenty of 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad left to use for more projects.

Dad's Darkroom

This was my second Papermaze DT project for September, using the versitile Factory 42 collection from Kaisercraft. This time I made a layout and used some 12" x 12" paper and some stickers, together with more from the paper pad (details below and on the Scrap Paper Scissors Blog).

This photo of my Dad was taken in his darkroom developing photographs of Mum. Probably late in the 1950's. Not a brilliant photograph but well worth preserving this memory in my scrapbook.
I can remember this room from my early years, and in 1968 it was turned into a bedroom for my baby brother!

Please see the blog for full details.
I will be back with some male cards using the paper pad next month.
