For Everything

One of my favourite items at the moment is the For Everything set from the Summer Mini Catalogue. As soon as I saw it I knew it was a 'must have' for me and I have not been disappointed.
I have used my Stampin' Write Markers to individually colour the image then added some pizazz using my blender pen and my ink pads. I love the result and am sure this card will be the first of many.
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, So Saffron; Elegant Eggplant;

Happy Birthday

It seems as though there is always a birthday around the corner so I like to make sure I have plenty of completed cards ready to go.

This is a simple and somewhat masculine design so should be great for the next male birthday!

I'm back

Oh my, is certainly has been a while since I have posted something here and I do feel rather bad about that. Life has been hectic over the christmas break and New Year but now the kids are back at school, I am settled back into work and today I had my first scrapbooking day for 2010 with a good friend. As per usual, if we created as much as we chatted a lot more would get done, but it wouldn't be as much fun!

So my mission today was to use up some of my gorgeous Christmas paper with a photo of my boys with Santa, as shown below. It is a simple design and very quick to make and I just love the colours in the papers.

Cardstock: Designer Paper Series Ski Slope
Ink: Real Red
Stamps: Holly, Jolly Christmas
Embellishments: Hodgepodge hardware, Real Red ribbon, Chipboard Alphabet
