Project Life Birthday spread

Last year my little, or should I say younger sister?, turned 21. Such a special time in the life of a young person. I’m so glad she decided to have a quiet celebration with family.

Very simple. Only a bit of washi tape and a heart punches out. Simple yet effective and the memories are recorded. Yay.

Masculine cards

Do you have trouble creating cards for the men in your life? I know I do. It’s one of the most challenging crafty things I do. My husband likes the cards to be very simple, very square and without fuss. Why not come along to my class on the 19th of December where we’ll make some cards for the men in your life as well as a whole heap of other cards as well.

This was an extremely simple card to create.

Cut a standard card base using Naturals White cardstock, I find this much better for masculine cards as it isn’t as harsh as Whisper White, with a top layer of Naturals White  measuring 10cm x 14.3cm.

Using World Maps  or a similar background stamp, stamp onto the top layer using Basic Grey ink.

Distress the edges of the top layer by using the edge of your scissors at a 90 angle and rubbing vigorously.

Further distress the edge by adding Crumbed Cake ink to the edge.

Using Memento ink stamp feathers from Four Feathers all the way along one edge of the card.

Finally stamp you sentiment along the bottom of the top layer.

This is not a standards size card for Australia although it still fits into our C6 envelopes. The Hexagon Hives die creates this beautiful background. I just stamped the Four Feathers stamp set over the whisper white in Lost lagoon, smoky slate and hello honey then added a few of the feather onto of the Hexagon Hives die cut out. Super easy.

This robot card is a CASe of a card in the catalogue however I did change it slightly based on the cardstock and supplies I had at home. Don’t forget to substitute from the example for what you have. The original  is on page 86 of the catalogue for those of you playing at home.

These are very easy cards to make. If you would like any further information about these cards or attending classes please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.

Project Life Christmas

Are you  preparing for Christmas? Have you created your layouts for last year? If you’re like me you’re running a bit behind schedule. Project Life offers the perfect solution. It is a quick and easy way to get your memories into an album.

My pages are all really simple because I have 5 children to create pages for as well as doing our family album. I also love to scrapbook traditionally and that is my main focus. I want to dedicate as much time as possible to traditional scrapbooking. If I can do Project Life with 5 kids you can give it a go too. Imagine the memories you’ll be able to leave your children.

Last year we had my daughter’s kindy graduation. As the journaling says, when did that begin to happen? I know it is the next phase of education but seriously.

Spiral Flower originals gift box

I often demonstrate this technique at a workshop and give it to the hostess as a gift. It is so very easy (so easy I have done it with my kids craft class) but so very effective.

So simple to do. I just inked the edges and then wound them up and hot glued them on. Bakers twine around the box. So beautiful. Add some choccies or a gift and you’re done.
