Neve's new baby album

I made an album for my neice that she can just slot photos in as she goes through her baby daughter Neve's first year. Based it on the baby album I had when my 2 daughters were born. (I wasn't scrapbooking then more's the pity).
Papers are a mix of Flavia baby papers, HOTP Baby papers and Dovecraft baby papers. C/S is Bazzill or Papermania. Flowers are Prima, Imaginisce and Papermania. Other items used are by K & Co envelopes and die cuts, Journalling stamped images are from a swap I undertook with friends on a forum, amd B G buttons. The 8" x 8" album was made using my BIA. (A rare outing for it lol.)

Easter is coming

This is the Tilda with bunny stamp from the latest collection (Easter) of Magnolia stamps. It is such a cute image and I bought it because it reminds me of how my DD1 hold our rabbits.

Papers are DCWV Pocket full of posies. Flowers are Prima and Imaginisce. The image is coloured in using Sakura Stardust gel pens and watercolour pencils.

I think this image will be used for the Easter cards I am sending this year. Friends be warned lol.

Little miss no name

These 2 cards are made using the girl drawn by Karen. She drew her to show Lou the kind of designs she would like her to draw for some future downloads. Wish that I could draw like that.

More cards made

More cards to try to sell. Papers are all Basic Grey from a variety of collections. Rub ons too are B G. Flowers are Primas. Sentiments are from my friend Karen. Also used various ribbons and brads from stash.

Thank You

When I left my old job (almost a month ago already) I received a craft voucher for the nearby farm - it has craft supplies on sale in addition to the fruit and veg they grow. This was the card I sent to work to say thank you for their gift.
Papers are B G Urban Priaire, Prima flowers and Papermania Brad. Image is Tilda in swimsuit.

We have a new baby in the family. My niece gave birth to her baby daughter Amelie last Friday. Haven't see her yet but we are hoping to on the next trip to see fmaily in Brighton.

Here are the cards I made to send to Amelie's big brother Jake and to my niece and her partner.

Papers are Basic Grey Sugared. Images are Magnolias. Bazzill Bling on the new baby card to make it pop, the circle sentiment is from my friend Karen and to finish it off a cute baby face button and baby faced ribbon.

Just the one

In the love section at the mo is this offering. Papers are BG, Prima flowers.

For the boys

These are the male cards I've made to date. A lot less embellishments and no flowers. Hmmm must find something else to put on men and boys cards.
Papers are a mix of Basic Grey and the new Daisy and Dandelion Papers from Papermania. Stamped sentiments are the new Clare Curd Signature range, circle sentiments are again free downloads from Karen's blog.

A whole pack of cards

I have been a very busy bee this week. Card making has taken a new turn for me and I am going to have a go at selling them. *eek* Will anyone buy them ???? I hope so.

These are my so far made cards for ladies. Most or all of the papers are Basic Grey. Flowers are Primas. Circle sentiments are free downloads from my friend Karen's blog. Other bits and bobs were used in the making of these cards too.

To follow

I have also managed to make some cards that I am hoping to start selling (if the shop I am going to will help me that is), but I haven't scanned or photographed them yet. So they will follow soon.

In addition I have finally got back to scrapbooking. Yay!!! I began using the lovely Cosmo Cricket set I bought last year but only got at Christmas time as a pressie from my DH. I have also managed 6 x 12" LOs last yar. Once again I haven't scanned or taken photos of them yet.

Good reason for that in both cases. The camera has flat batteries and I have no more until the shopping arrives tomorrow. Oh well. I should be able to post those items in the next day or so. (But don't hold me to it lol.)

As promised

Why is it that when my DD1's friends have a birthday she comes to me for a card. ???? Well no more she has been let loose on the world of cardmaking so this is the last card I will be making for her to use. B G paper and Prima Hydrangea flowers. Image is hopeless Tilda and was so like the girl this card was made for that we had to use it. Again not the best light ot photo this card.
B G Urban Prairie papers, mirri card to mat and Prima flowers. Not the best photo as the light was wrong. Oh well.

More B G Urban Prairie. Making Memories journalling notes and Prima flowers with adhesive pearls.

B G Urban Prairie, inked the edge of the stamed image (for a change) with a versamark cube, Prima flowers and Magnolia image.

Here are some recent cards I made. Most of them are birthday cards. (So many birthdays in Feb, for friends mainly but the odd family member too.)
Paper BG Urban Prairie, Chatterbox ribbon and BG button
