Twenty One

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, I've only just managed to scrape in this week - better late than never!

As soon as I saw the theme of  'Alphabet' this idea popped into my head - I don't know why, it's more text than alphabet but I hope it's OK.


It is a friends 21st Birthday next month and as the card will be posted I though that this CAS design would be perfect.

I used my Tonic Number dies to cut the '21' from black card stock and just placed the text, which I computer generated, behind it. The sentiment is a Woodware stamp heat embossed with white embossing powder.


I would like to enter this card into the Less is More Challenge 316 - Alphabet.

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

Sweet 16

This is the final Milestone Birthday card that I created for Making Cards Magazine.


I used beautiful papers from the NitWit Collections – Bundled Enchanting Collection, I love the colours.


The sentiment is from the Milestone Word Art collection from the Digi Stamp Boutique, this is a really useful collection of sentiments and being digital you can print them whatever size you wish.


To embellish my card I just added some ribbon and a button from my stash.

Happy Birthday and Good Luck

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme for the next week is Boys are back in town - A card for a Male.   I have used this fabulous collection called Businessman - as you probably know each set consists of one inked stamp, one coloured stamp, one matching paper and one composition.

I have created two cards, for the first one I have used the composition, I have flipped it so that he is facing the opposite way as I wanted to add the 'It's Your Birthday banners on the left hand side.


I printed him twice so that I could add dimension and used the matching paper to decorate the inside of my card.


For my second card I used the coloured stamp and some papers from the Trattoria Chef Paper Pack, I printed the image twice so that I could add some dimension.


I computer generated the sentiment and decorated the inside of my card to match.


Make sure you pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Boys are back in town Challenge. If you use a Paper Shelter image you could win a $30 Gift Certificate, if you use another image you can win 3 Digis of your choice.


Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

Young Love

This is a scrapbook page that I have created, I loosely followed Jen Fisher's 12 Months of Scrapbooking - January sketch - check out her YouTube video HERE.

The photograph is of my gorgeous eldest son and his beautiful girlfriend just before they went to their university Summer Ball last year - it has taken me a while to get around to making this!


I have used beautiful papers from the Polkadoodles Belle Papillon Vintage CD Rom.  I inked the edges of everything - the letters and butterflies are also from the CD.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.
