I am trying very hard to get back into my scrapbooking. It has been so long, but having my photos all over the place does not help. So with a bit of luck, I will be able to sort them out while scrapping my photos.
First up are 2 lovely photos of my nieces which were taken early on in the year. These are such lovely photos, that it was the perfect opportunity to begin with Amber & Dannielle. Belive it or not, but they are identical twins, hence the title of the pages. People who have known them all their lives are still unable to tell them apart. I have to guess which one they are talking about by the stories they relay to me.
Besides doing the 12 x 12 pages, I like to create albums using A4 pages. Sometimes, I find them a little more easier to handle & seem to fit more in an album than the standard 12 x 12 album. Fingers crossed SU! will bring out an album to fit A4 pages.
I didn’t want to do the usual beach theme, so I decided to go with the colours in their dresses. I printed the title onto a piece of Textured Whisper White using the colours in their dresses & adhered to the page with Chystal Effects. I did pour Crystal Effects over each letter to make it stand out a little.

I hope you all had a great Christmas, despite the floods in Qld & the snow in parts of USA & Europe. To think that Perth has Bush Fires!
Today’s card is from the sketch over at Stamping 411 and as usual a great one to use in creating a card or project.
For my card, I used supplies from the current Summer Mini Catalogue. I cut my Cardstock – So Saffron and adhered Regal Rose to the top of it. I then cut a piece of DSP – Island Oasis – to adhere to the top of Regal Rose.
Using my Scallop Trim Punch, I punched both top & bottom of the Tempting Turquoise Cardstock and adhered a piece of So Saffron across the middle of it.
I then stamped the sentiment from “Cheers to You” in Chocolate Chip directly onto the So Saffron. Inking the branch in Old Olive from the Stamp Set “Tropical Party”, I stamped a couple of random images directly onto the So Saffron.
I inked the coconut from the same Stamp Set, coloured the umbrella & straw using my Watercolour Pencils, cut around the image & adhered over the top of the branches using SU® Stampin’ Dimensionals.
