Cards & layouts

I just love the Prima papers lately – they so suit my style and they so suited this photo. My DD6 really wanted a photo of a cuddle with her baby sister and I think this one is just beautiful, especially with the light coming in the window.

Idea 88: Machine stitch around the kraft cardstock to make a border then pull the stitching out.

Idea 89: Thread beads onto the branch wire.

My girls have also been learning how to make flowers from tissue paper so I used them on some cards for a change.

This one above  is made from Websters pages 6×6 paper pad.

And these next two are made from the Collections 6×6 paper pad.

Idea 90: Use up left over letters like Q, Z & Fs to make an interesting background, especially good on pages about talking or words.

DT stuff plus more

I’m still having much more fun with my pages & projects now that I have slowed down and stopped rushing.  Came up with this idea a while ago but only finished it the other day.

It takes pride of place above my China cabinet and holds our spare keys.

The little houses were fun to do – I got them from Annas Craft cupboard. The butterflies were sprayed with demin glimmermist – isn’t it a stunning effect.

This was my take on the Feb sketch from Annas. I just mirrored it & I used BG Sugar Rush pps and stickers – really loved them.

Idea 18: Fasten ribbon with brads.

And a couple more from my DT kit.  This one (above) uses Pink Paislee Vintage moon pp as the background with BG Sugar Rush stickers. Very easy but effective I think.

Idea 19: Dab paint around chipboard edges (bird)

And another one using Bella Blvd PLASTINO pps and stickers.

Idea 20: Handstitching & using geometric shapes/design.
