Loads of Love….

… is a Stamp Set I have not used much, in fact very rarely has it been out of it’s case.  Thinking about what to create for my class at the Community Centre this arvo, thought this ight be appropriate.  I like to give the ladies Kits that they can use for either male or female cards.  Mind you, this doesn’t work sometimes, but they don’t seem to mind.

Our class has seen an increase in the last 2 weeks from 10 regulars to about 16 now & growing, so I have been thinking how the class can be managed now that I will have 16+ regulars each week & I think it has just hit me, but more about that next week.

Using this stamp set, I didn’t want to make a male’s card, so thought why not a girl’s card & use all the pretty colours fro the “Subtles Family”.  I’m quiet happy with the final result & screams “Girly”.

Colour the larger Flower with Pretty in Pink Re-Inker & set aside to dry.  Do this by adding a small amount of water into a bowl along with a small drop or so of Pretty in Pink Re-Inker, drop flower in until all covered in coloured water.  I wanted my flower a very light colour so I only used a small drop

SC 002/11…

Thought I would attempt another sample for the challenge going on over at Sunny Challenges & Creations  There is still time to play before it closes.
For my 2nd attempt, I’ve made it into a Christmas Card – getting that much closer every day.  You can see the original post & measurements Here 
I also attached a ribbon & punched a greeting!  For the bird’s eye, I used a Basic Rhinestone & coloured it using a black permanent marker!  Works wonders!

Today I have gone for a little different, in the way of doing a couple of scrap book pages. 

I have made it an aim this year to complete at least one album & to do so, figured I would have to do at least 2 complete pages per week.

I like my photos to be the main focus, which means that I do not put a lot of accessories on a page, as you will learn to recognise the style.  Everyone is different and you will soon recognise your own style of scrappin’ as you go along.
Also with this album, I want the photos & pages to be as natural as possible, considering where they are
