Baby girl card

I have finally made something in my new home. I have been so without my mojo for so long. It has taken me a lot longer than I thought but yesterday I decided I had to do something. I have a few new babies coming into my life so thought some baby cards would be great to start with.
The background pattern paper is by stampin up. The rosette is by Tattered Inspirations.

Challenge at retreat

The photo is of most of the girls at Scrap Therapy Retreat, at the Holiday Inn, Cairns. The photo and papers were given to us as a sort of challenge. So this is what I have come up with.

Brag book

I made this as a gift to someone special who has just done some travelling around Australia. It was very hard to get just 12 photos out of the hundreds that have been taken.

Graham's Graduation

I have finally finished this double layout which got started months ago at one of Sharon's classes. These papers are from Stampin up as well as the stamps, punches, brads and die-cut.

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Finally finished this layout of my in-laws of many years ago. The layout is from a design of Sharon's, my local Stampin up demonstrator. Though this is completly different as I have used different papers and embellishments.

Engagement Card

I haven't had too much opportunity to do any craft, but my son got engaged and this is the card I made them. I have used cardstock, stampin up stamps, inks, and ribbons, and martha stewart punches, as well as prima flower.

Bundle of Joy

I made this for our cousin's daughter who had a beautiful baby girl. My interpretation of the three fold card. The pink on the left has been brayered, and I used a small photo of the gorgeous girl to replicate a mirror.

Raymond in 1986

This is my entry in Anne's mini challenge on Crafter's Anonymous. I did have this in my mind to do anyway so it fitted in well. I've been wanting to do the teared strips and sewing layout for awhile. How cute is my eldest boy, back in 1986. I used Kaiser papers here and the titles are done on the cricut.

Introducing Nikki

Of course everyone thinks how strange I am that I got out the camera on first meeting my sons new girlfriend. But I have a challenge on Crafters Anonymous to scrap a highlight of the month. For me this was it. Nikki is such a lovely girl. I hope she doesn't hold it against me.
I have used Websters' Pages. My teacher of the layout was Sharon as we did this in class though everyone's turns out so completely different.

My nephew's special day.

I've created these pages in a class with Sharon, so it is all her ideas and inspiration. They are of my nephew's wedding day. Stephen and Bianca are such a wonderful couple and their day was very special.
The papers and stamps are all stampin up with the outside punch work all  done with Martha Stewart doodle punch.
