Sports Carnival layout

How many 6×6 paper stacks do you own? A few? Possibly like me you have a bit of an addiction to buying them. I buy them because they are so good for scrapbooking pages but also because I think I’ll use them for card classes.  More often than not I don’t or if I do I’m stuck with bit a pieces. This layout uses those bits and pieces of a 6×6 paper stack.

One of my signature styles according to my husband is the pen border around my paper pieces. Well what can I say? I love doing it because it gives each piece a bit of definition.

Another favourite of mine is to create 3 embellishment clusters. I love that these co ordinating papers give me the ability to make cheap embellishment clusters.

It wouldn’t be a layout of mine without some journaling either and this time I’ve included a clise up of the story.

I loved making this layout.  It came together very easily because everything co-ordinates and I was able to stick to what I love and what feels right to me.

ESAD 2017 Holiday catalogue blog hop

You’ve arrived from Megan Lenske.

Christmas supplies have always been my weakness. I normally buy so many papers and embellishments and stamps. Do you just go all crazy for Christmas supplies too?

There was one set that completely captivated me in the holiday catalogue. With a ballet loving 10 year old how could I pass up Suagrplum Dreams? I mean it’s not just a Christmas set. Check out Jessica’s 10th birthday card.

A very simple card using only 2 colours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I love the tone on tone stamping for the background and the cardstock strip across the card. The strip is simply using the flower and leaves from Number of Years. The only thing that was tricky with this card was fussy cutting the ballerina. I think totally worth it for the effect it has.

Every year I create a December Daily type Christmas album and I love to look over how our Christmases have changed over the years so I am very pleased with the inclusion of the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More this year. It looks great and so easy to use. Be sure to check back in October after my retreat to see how I’ve started the album ready for assembly in December.
