Friendship Blooms

Sonya Rossetto has created these beautiful cards with the Sale-a-bration set called FRIENDSHIP BLOOMS. The cutout flowers are embossed in white on vellum which creates a wonderful effect. Bashful blue cardstock and ink were used also. Lovely!!

Coaster Mini Album

I have put a few photos of the kids, that they'd taken of each other, into this mini album using coasters for each page. It was fun and easy. The colour scheme evolved from the photos.

Stampset: Big deal Alphabet


One for the kids perhaps using the Big Deal Alphabet and a star I traced out. The colours are a little better in real life.

Cardstock & ink: True thyme, Cool Caribbean, Sage shadow

Stamp sets: Big Deal alphabet, Riveting and Polka dots and paisley

Green tree frog fun

I've just started a few kids projects. Perhaps it's because of school holidays but this card uses Pocket Fun to make a birthday card. The green frog has Crystal Effects so it's nice and slimy. Again money or a gift voucher can be slipped inside the front pocket.
Cardstock: Gable green, Not quite navy, real red
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Olive green
Stamp sets: Pocket fun, Polka dot & paisley, Canvas, Riveting

Family Tree

Just in Thyme double sided paper and stamped embellishments still on the desk from Christmas all came in handy to create this Christmas Tree. The colour theme of the Just in Thyme papers allow the photos to stand out also adding lots of interest in the background. The back side of the tree is blank but it will become the 2008 Christmas. How's that for forward planning? I have used the Kaiser craft Christmas tree.

Cardstock: Just in Thyme double sided 12 x 12 paper
Ribbons: Chocolate, Taupe

Merci Love

The Sale-a-bration is here and this card uses one of the stamp sets 'Merci' from the Sale-a-bration brochure which could be yours free. I have finally got out the watercolour paper and pencils and had some fun. Using red and yellow pencils to match the gold and red cardstock.

Stamp set: Merci, All-Year Cheer I
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Watercolour paper
Ink: Black
