21st Birthday

I had to break into some lovely virgin 12x12 sheets of this fab Crate cardstock to make a card so I promised myself I would use the rest to make a page and not just put it all back in the draw!! I love Crate its so lovely and thick and doublesided which is a bonus! I had stickers to go with the range as well, so this is what I came up with.

I used a Bazzill stitiching template to do the pattern across the bottom and the flourish is a Sizzix die. The flower centres are just some small flower punches. The date stamp if from Imaginisce, everything else is Crate Cowgirl collection.

Pretty in Pink

Somehow these papers ended up in my basket after a quick trip to Sugar and Spice on Friday...amazingly!! Still trying to use older photos and I remembered I had this photo of Emma which needed some tweeking on picasa, its still not perfect by any means but I can live with it and would rather have it in her album than not used at all. Everything is My Minds Eye, the title was done with American Craft thickers and the brads& buttons were from my stash. The flourish and the corners are sizzix and sizzlet dies.

Growing Up

I love this photo of my daughter when she was at Infants school and as the school colour was purple it was the perfect choice for this layout. The kit was from Totalpapercrafts, I made the scalloped circle from a Nestabililties die and added flat back gems around the edge. The papers are My minds eye Penny Lane. I love the idea karen had for running the ribbon through the page at the bottom....will definitely be using that idea again!

Have a great weekend be back soon with some more layouts

Hope you all had a great weekend....what a great Wimbledon final yesterday, although I did wonder if I was ever going to get the dinner on!! lol.

Todays layout is another kit from Totalpapercrafts, the papers are from Kaisercraft and I think they go with this very old photo of my in-laws really well. Sadly neither of them are with us anymore and I dont have very many photos to scrap. Crochet flowers are very in at the moment and karen has a great selection. The title has been made with American Craft Thickers... I love these alphabets, very versatile and they come in a range of fonts and colours. I did the swirls slightly differently using a Sizzix die.
