March Scrapclub - Wedding Page

Better late than never! Here are some photos and our page that we made in this month's Scrapclub. We have gone for a slightly vintage theme by using some wonderful Kairsercraft papers, Cream and black Bazzill Bling, Black and Cream Bazzill flowers, Anita's black sheer ribbon and some great large Raven Black brads from Bazzill. The brackets and arrow are stamps from a Sandylion set called 'Punctuation' by Kelly Panacci, a set I can't seem to stop using. The L O V E was cut from the QK 'Storybook' alphabet, the label is a QK Revolution 'Label'. As you can see from the photos, a good night was had by all and yes, all the chocolate fingers were eaten by the end of the evening. Next month, we will be playing with the 'Bind-it-All machine, making some mini albums in spring colours. Heidi xxx

Mothers Day

I had a lovely Mothers Day yesterday when Geoff (my partner) took the 3 kids out to Tesco's for breakfast and shopping. It gave me about 2 hours all to myself making cards, which was bliss. So here are my cards. The Mother's Day one was an idea taken from a Hero Arts class kit and adapted slightly. The 'You Are Special' Stamp is from Scroll Frame & Message Set and the papers are from the new Magenta paper range. Embellishments include Kaiser Flowers & Gems, Lace & Hero Art Pearl Gems.
Here are the baby cards I made with the Sandylion Foam Stickers which are now in the sale and the papers are from the Love & Friends 6" x 6" Smirk paper pad. I love these Kaiser Seal Stamps which say " 100% Original" which I think are ideal for baby cards. I have also used the Threading Water Punch & Scallop Circle Punch.

Fridays Create & Take

We have used the new Quickutz Die this week called 'St. Patricks Day'. It has a beer glass, horseshoe, clover and hat all on one die. Here is a couple of samples using the beer glass & horse shoe. Try using the white Puffy Pens for the froth as it bubbles up and looks great!
