Sunshie and Showers

I went to the Papermaze Crop on Saturday and this is my version of Vanessa's crop kit for July. 

I scrapped this photo of my daughter Catherine sheltering under her amazing rainbow umbrella when she was bridesmaid for Emily and Jack's wei dding last October. As it was an autumn wedding we were lucky with the weather, there was a very fine rain when Emily arrived, but by the time the service was over it ias fine again for the photos and drinks outside.

This time we used paint and stain from the Distress range. I substituted the Tumbled Glass paint with Forest Moss to match Catherine's dress, but used the Shabby shutters Stain as supplied. 

Thanks for the crop and the kit design Vanessa.

Thanks for looking.

Catching up with the layout from the June Papermaze Crop Kit. I was not able to attend this crop so made my layout today, nearly a month later. 

The photo shows my daughter Emily and her husband Jack at theur wedding last year. during the evening the photographer took some photos in the barns and this one of them on the old tractor. 

Papers are mostly Photoplay, Moments in Time collection.

The layout involves lace, paper flowers, corrugated card, stitching, chipboard, twine, Nuvo drops, dies and Bazzill Basics cardstock. 

My title was made with some American Crafts Thickers letters, a play on the 'Tractor' theme!!

Thanks for the design and the crop Vanessa.

Thanks for looking.

Happy 60th Birthday Hilary

Happy 60th Birthday to my dear friend Hilary, we have been friends since we were Girl Guides together back in the 1970's. Hilary Held a Tea Party at Bromley Court Hotel last Friday to celebrate. I made this card for her.

An 8" x 8" scalloped card base and a piece of paper cut to fit the front from my stash. Then I cut cups, saucers, cakes, biscuites, cherries, letters, words and numbers all cut from white card using Crafter's Companion dies. The silver spoons were also from CC, but cut from silver miri card.

I arranged the cakes etc. around the edges of the card and piled the cups in the centre under the 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'  banner. 

All the die cut items were inked with Distress Ink in these colours.

Some of the letters have added sparkle, using Crystal Stickles., and Nuvo drops added to the cupcakes.

Many happy returns Hilary xxx

Scarlett Rose

Scarlett Rose is the newest member of the family, she is my great niece, born to my nephew Sam and his fiancée Chelsey last November. I can't really believe this cute little baby girl is already 6 months old!

I made this using the delightful April kit from Papermaze, These kits are such great value for money and you get six sheets of patterned paper, 2 sheets of Bazzill and a bag of embellishments. I also had the extra 4 sheets of matched cardstock. The colours are stunning, not sure my photo does them justice. Here is a photo of the kit. I have only made one page so far, but there is plenty more to play with.

I used three sheets of Bazzill for the base of this layout. The first was Whirlpool, the second Blossom and the third layer was Lily. I cut the latter two down in size slightly to give a fine border and the former two were gutted.

I just loved the little square designs on the Kind paper from the Be You collection by Pink Fresh. The reminded me of the flower dies in the new Sizzix Thinlits Funky Floral #3 set from Tim Holtz, so I simply had to combine the two!
I used a QuicKutz alphabet for 'SCARLETT ROSE' and another Sizzix Thinlits Tim Holtz set for the months (thanks for the loan Sandra x).
