Just popping in....

on a Sunday night to share a couple more projects I've haven't posted here, the first is a card that I made a few months back for my Brother and Sister-in-laws wedding card. I used my Cuttlebug a few times on this one, I've cut the heart and the book page with the Label 1 Nestabilities, then I've embossed the cream cardstock at the back. I then just glued the vintage buttons to the heart, added a Tattered Angels post card, a rub-on and some string, and that's it, a vintage inspired wedding card :)

And lastly I have a layout for you. I did a little photoshop work on the photo's by adding them to a House of3 digital template and printing them all out together. The rest of the layout is pretty much all Sassafras, including the stamped border along the top, I love the brightness of this layout, the photo's have lots of colour, as well as the papers, but by putting it all a white background I think it all works ok, there is enough white space to carry it. Hope you enjoy :-) Anyway, that's it for tonight, I'll be back tomorrow with some more. Night x

Autumn colour and a layout

Hi there, and happy Thursday. I was just editing a couple of photo's I took last week and thought I would share. The Autumn colour at our place at the moment is just gorgeous, so I snapped a couple of pics of my boys as we were heading back to the house for lunch. Since I took them the trees have almost lost all of there leaves so I'm glad I got some photo's when I did. It's a shame the sun wasn't co-operating for the second shot, but I included it anyway, it's a good shot of the trees :)

And lastly I wanted to share a layout I did at the end of last year and never posted here. The photo is of me when I was just a little girl :) wearing the most luscious knitted dress....ha, ha, and holding onto my Big Ted. The layout features lots of Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers and some Sassafras paper whimsies (love those!). I've also used my Martha Stewart doily lace border punch to punch all the strips, and the centre of the big flower I have made using lots of Glossy Accents, and the little bits of confetti left from cutting the strips, love the effect, and I didn't have to throw them Well, that's about all for the day, I'm off to do a bit more of my mini-album below, so lets hope I have some creative inspiration :) Bye for now.

Blogging return....

Well hello there, after nearly half the year neglecting my blog, I have finally got around to updating and posting again...woo, hoo!!! I have been having a little play with the design of the blog and I'm not quite finished yet, I still want to design a new header, but, I will be back on a more regular basis from now on. I have decided to not only focus my blog on scrapping and card making, but other things that make me happy and inspire me, so expect to see some home design inspiration, design inspiration in general, bits and piece of food stuff, recipes etc... and anything else I feel like sharing with you ;)

So, to start with I have a little peak at a mini-album I'm in the process of finishing at the moment, I'm planning on putting it in my etsy shop when I've finished, that is unless I can't part with also some crochet flower embellishments I've done for the shop also. I have been teaching myself to crochet, and have been having all sorts of fun making these little flowers using up a heap of embroidery thread I've had forever, a leftover from my cross-stitch days. They are so sweet, and perfect for adding to layouts, cards and mini-albums.
Next up, is a card  I made last week using some gorgeous new October Afternoon papers, ribbon, a vintage book page and one of my crochet flowers. I cut the shape of the card with my new, and very much loved Tim Holtz die, which I have also used to cut all the pages of the mini-album above. So, I hope you enjoy these little bits and I will be back soon with some more goodies.
