Joy Banner

Using the Stampin' Up Simply Created Banner kit and Pool Party and Marina Mint ink the JOY Banner evolved.

Rosette Christmas Tree

Winter Frost Designer Series Paper was used for the cool colours. The Christmas Star was stamped in Coastal Cabanna ink and cut out to make a nice big star.
Just for fun I used a jar of mints for the base.

Envelope Punch Board

Christmas is nearly here and I like to decorate the gifts. Here is a collection of  my favourite boxes using the Stampin' Up! Envelope punch board.

MDS Grunge Photobook - Life is a Beach

MDS Photobooks really make digital scrapbooking easy.  I used one of the pages from the Grunge Photobook and uploaded my photos into the frames and added the wording, done.  The simplicity of the layout appeals to me in this case, especially as it is just one page of a photobook.

Chalk Talk Medley

Beautiful card for a beautiful lady turning 30! Using Modern Medley DSP and Chalk Talk stamp set.

Too Kind

                                                                       I have been lucky enough to have a lot of too kind people in my life lately which brings an abundance of bright happy moments - colourful flowers.

Chalk Talk stamp set was used with black to create the greeting Dictionary stamped firstly for the background and then repeatedly stamping of Too Kind.  The flowers are Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabanna with the additional Summer Starfruit Flower Shop.  Got to love the stretchy ruffled ribbon trim.

Beautifully Baroque

Beautifully Baroque embossing folder was used to create the first layer and then topped with Modern Medley DSP with the Filmstrip stamp cut out and raised.  The Crisp cantaloupe flower was created by punching out 2 of the new Pansy punch and the Blossom punch with a black circle and large Rhinestone centre.

Enjoy birthday girl!!

Feel Goods

It feels good to be back blogging again, so to start off with my swap at the Stampin' Up convention using the Feel Goods stamp set.  Attached to my Epic Day This and That Journal with washi tape.

Relay for Life Fundraiser with Elegant Eleanor

What a great night?  We made all the items below at the Cardmaking Fundraiser for the Relay for Life Team that I have been supporting for about 4 years.  The ladies were so efficient that the cards were made in record time. We used the Seasonal Catalogue Designer Kit to make a box with 3 mini cards inside. Summer Starfruit, Basic Grey and Sahara Sand set the colour palette.
