Lovely as a Tree & Funky Forest scrapbook layout

Wow, it’s nearly the end of January!  Hard to believe it.  Anyway, this is another of the layouts I made for my step-Nan’s 90th album.

This was her house as a child in Dulwich Hill.  I kept this simple, simple colours – Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette, and simple trees with the stamp set  Lovely as a Tree and standard wheel Funky Forest.  There is also a strip from the Simply Scrappin’ Sweet Nothings kit along each border of each page.  Too easy!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Stamp-a-Stack – Birthday cards

These are a set of cards made for a recent Stamp-a-Stack.  Gosh, we had a ball!  There was even a unique bloke gracing our presence.  I say, “gracing”, as he was an awesome cardmaker!  His creations wowed us all.  LOL!

I love this set of cards.  The layout for the Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Lovely Lilac card worked well with the Big Birthday stamp set.  The variety of cards everyone made on the night excelled all my expectations.  And, the Dazzling Diamonds rivalled the sun’s sparkle.

The other card was inspired by Lin Mei.  Thanks for your wonderful idea, Lin Mei!  I think the Kiwi Kiss/Tangerine Tango combination does solid justice to Funky Forest.  And colouring in the trees with marker pens is so much fun!  The best thing about this card is that everyone could tailor their cards to suit the sentiments from either Short & Sweet or Sincere Saluations.

Why not book a Stamp-a-Stack class with me and make 10 cards (of 2 different designs) for only $20 (envelopes $3 extra)?  That’s only $2 a card (or $2.30 including the envelope).  Does the idea appeal to you?  Then, what should you do?  First, make sure you live not too far away from me!  Then, you organise a minimum of 4 people to come around to your house and have some fun making cards.  I come to you and provide everything, including a hostess gift for you.

Thanks for looking.

Funky Forest

In April I had a great night out at Jayne Mercer’s house for the Inklings Awards night … and there was lots of laughter, stamping and creating going on 🙂  While there, I saw the best card … I just loved it … it made me have to order Funky Forest so I could recreate it!! (do you know that feeling??!).  The card was created by Lin Mei, a very talented member of Jayne’s team.

I’ve altered the card somewhat, as the original card was simply on Whisper White (a one layer card) … and beautiful!  But I wanted to try it layered (can’t help myself), so this is the card I was inspired to make by Lin Mei (thanks Lin Mei!):
