Scrapbook Page Layout

Have been saying to my friends for a while that i really want to get back into doing pages.
So i spend hours and hours researching and watching others but not actually
doing it myself......

So today i told myself that it was time to just do it and stop over thinking things.
It didnt turn out how i wanted but hey its a start

Good day making cards

Yay. Great day in the craft room. Ended up getting two cards done. One I can't share at the moment but I can share the one i made for my grandson who is turning 5 in a few weeks. His mum keeps the cards do I try to make it perfect. Xoxox

Card to order

A friend asked me to make her daughter a birthday card again this year as i made one last year and she loved it. Its such an honor and i was more than happy to do it. Also helped me get back into my craft room as i have been avoiding it for so long.

SO here is the card and i do love how it turned out. All she asked for was the colour green so here is the result. And i can tell you she absolutely loved it





Now i have the urge to head back into my room and create some more

This made me have to think a little more than usual lol
I started with a piece of white paper and just inked it up with Tim Holtz
inks and this is the end result. I am happy with the outcome

I feel like I haven't sat in my craftroom in a while to make a card just because I wanted too. Not for a challenge, not for an order, just make one for no other reason than the love of crafting

Sunday Morning Card



Can't think of a better way to relax on a Sunday morning. The image is from Lala Land Stamps. The paper is one I stumbled across at a craft retreat a month ago. Indigo Blu - vintage memories. It's just gorgeous paper. The stamped words are Tim Holtz hashtags


                                             

Happy Sunday xoxox

Playtime

Here is my grandson playing on the back of Koko truck. He loves anything that has wheels. The paper is from an old paper back I had laying around as I am on a mission to use it up before buying more.


I don't do a lot of scrapbook pages as I am more of a card maker now so it's nice to do one to spark my love for them again. I may try to get back to them and do some more

Leaving a Design Team

The time had come for me to step down from a design team i was on. It  was the very first one i had ever been on and have been on it for just over a year but i felt it was time to let someone else enjoy the experience. It was a great group of ladies and i will miss them. So thanks CCC DIgi Creations.
I really enjoyed my time with you

I am still on the Southern Girls Design team so this will still keep me busy

xoxoxox

She is so cute



I am so in love with this stamp. I can see my self using it over and over
I coloured her using Copic Markers and  the paper i have had
laying around for ages and i am trying to use up what i have before i buy more

Southern Girls Challenge

Pink on pink!!!!


The weather outside is so cold and there was nothing else to do but play in the craftroom. At least colouring took my mind off the cold

What a shame I now have to do the wifey thing and cook some dinner or I could easily make another
