A Smile To Light Up Everyone’s day Scrapbook Page

Good evening, tonight I have a page I made in class at Jacques last month, I was very lucky as I always forget to take photos with me but the colour on Caities Jersey matches perfectly. This is such a sweet page with  a lot of different textures added. We have used glitter brads, buttons, pearls, rhinestone brads, ribbon, thread, glitter, embossing folders and some punches and dies. Although it looks like quite a simple page there were a lot of things to do on here.


Close up of the bird and the rosettes. Every rosette has a different finish for the centres. I punched out the extra circle behind Caitlyn’s name just to make that stand out a bit more. The base of the bird is stamped and then embossed. The wings have been sponged in the same colour.


I hope your weather is better than ours at the moment, we have had terrible winds but its more annoying is one moment the sun is shinning and the next it is pouring down.

Unfortunately my camera is at the shop getting fixed so until I have it back I can not take any photos to blog, so as soon as I get that back I will be back.

Joy Riding Scrapbook Page

Good afternoon, here is the second scrapbook page I finished last weekend. I actually started this one a few months ago but just never got around to finishing it. It is of my two kids mucking around with a dolls pram. They were taking turns at pushing each other around the kitchen, at one stage Caitie got stuck in it, that was so funny.

This page is using the SAB papers, I still love these and am so glad I got a few packs. I have used faux stitching to connect the two papers together and finished the outside edges with different borders. These buttons are not SU but the colours fitted beautifully and added a new texture to the page. I used the heart embosslit folder with a punched heart in red glitter cardstock over the front. The other details speak for themself.

Enjoy your weekend, and all those mothers out there have a great Mother’s Day filled with love from your family and friends.

Happy Mothers Day and TST #64

Good afternoon, today I have a quick post to share with you. I have been busy making Mothers day cards to sell in my boxes at school and at the gym, but the last two days I have been working on my own mum’s mothers day card. For this I used the sketch over at Try Stampin on Tuesday. I don’t often make square cards but it was nice doing something different. Here is the sketch:

I have used Rose Red as my base colour and then used Flirtatious specialty paper and a strip of So Saffron paper stack as my patterned paper. For the stamp set I have used Greenhouse Garden in So Saffron and Soft Suede I got my colour combo from the Colour Coach. I have added some thread around the front and added two little tags to finish off the sentiment I had a bit of trouble finding these words small enough to fit in the tag and also most sayings, seem to say “for you”, not “to you”. Anyway I found this one on the stamp set Under the Big Top. I used my markers to ink up only these two words, then punched it out. For the 3-D flower I cut out 4 more flowers and sprayed them with water and scrunched them up. I used a brad for the centre.

Here is my card:

Now to get them in the post, my mum will be surprised to get it on time. (i am always late with my cards)

Boy Scrapbook Page Using Rosettes

Good afternoon, today I have a scrapbook page to share with you. I made this last weekend and im still not sure about it, but the ladies I scrap with just loved it. This was taken of my son on Matakana Island a few weeks ago. I have used the new pleated Satin ribbon at the bottom just to balance the page. I used the new score tool to make the rosettes, these are fun to make and look great. The title is made using the pennants punch, I haven’t used this one a lot but I do like the effect it gives.

I made three other pages so Ill do my best to post them soon. Have a great week.
