Birthday Card

Back to a card this week and another digistamp boutique image, its Alf fishing and hes a great image to colour and makes a great Male card.

I made the tickets using the kanban stamp set, which are great because you can change the sentiment to suit.


Although you can not see it in the picture I used glossy accents on the fishes eye and its really pops. The image has been coloured with promarkers and I used my new tim holtz distressing tool around the papers.

Here are two more pages from my scrapbook, this page is our day out at peirrefonds castle which is were the BBC film Merlin. It is a beautiful castle and set in the most gorgeous landscape.

and this was our day out at Hitlers Bunker Wolf Gorge II, this was a fasinating visit and the guides were great at telling the story of hitlers only visit to France during the second world war. 

Both days were really good, well worth a visit.
Ive still got a few more pages to do but i might put it away for a couple of weeks, as I have some cards to get on with.

My First Scrapbook

Well thought I would give scrapbooking a go and decided to do a whole album, lol I must be mad. Although its a small album I did discover that it would be easier to plan on full sized 12 x 12 pages. Oh well here are my first pages.

This is my cover and the theme is our holiday to France last year, I have used a chipboard papermania album and have designed all my project on craft artist.

I blended my photo onto the backing paper on this page in craft artist and stamped the Eiffel tower and bits using Artemio stamp set. I used my silhouette cameo to cut the fonts on this page.

I carried on with the same style on this page to but also added Polaroid style snaps. Well thats it for now hopefully will have some more for next week.

Mother's Day Easel Card

I just love the new grand calibre for cutting larger shapes, as they are perfect for your card base and then all your regular sized dies fit perfectly in the middle.

The papers I have used are a downloaded pack from nitwits (a breath of fresh air) and the digital stamp is from digistamp boutique. I coloured the image with aqua promarkers and added some bling for the centres.

The little senitment is printed and die cut with a memory box die.

New Job

This image is from the digistamp boutique and I thought he would be perfect for a New Job Card

I have coloured him with promarkers, and the papers are forever friends retro collection and cordinations card stock.

Craft Artist Sentiment
I created the sentiment using the wrap around text tool on a circle and added the lines and good luck to the centre. I then sized it to fit a nestie which worked quite well.
