Life Definitions scrapbook layout

This is the third layout for my step-Nan’s 90th album. 

I loved putting this layout together because each page has a theme based on the photo.  The spotty page is all spotty theme because all the ladies in the photo have spotty dresses on.  And the second theme is obvious, because there is snow in the photo!

For the spotty theme, I used Parisian Breeze DSP for the base page, as well as for the thick Baja Breeze strip.  I’ve stamped the heart from Priceless and cut it out and stuck it above “DJs”.  The “DJs” was stamped from Defining Alphabet and cut out and layered over squares punched from Stampin’ Up!’s square punches.  The ladies in the photo love to shop at David Jones … hence, the “DJs”.

There is a strip of Baja Breeze 1″ wide grosgrain across the page and the stamped “R” is from Defining Alphabet, which has the definition for “Remember” next to it, stamped from Life Definitions (also known as Define Your Life).

The base for this layout is from Ski Slope DSP.  The “SNOW” has been stamped from Lovely Letters Alphabet and then cut out and layered over punched out squares from Stampin’ Up!’s square punches.  Again, the stamped “F” is from Defining Alphabet, which has the definition for “Favourite” next to it, stamped from Life Definitions.

And these are the layouts with photos on them …

It’s hard to see the spotty dresses with my night-time photography 😦

A beautiful new baby

Congratulations, Michele and David! On 9 April 2009, my dear friend Michele gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Elise (beautiful name, isn’t it?). Elise is so lucky because besides having fantastic parents, she also has two big sisters to dote on her.

This is the card I made for Elise …

It’s a shaker card … with SU pink chunky sprinkles to shake in the window. I’ve always had a facsination when looking at cards with sprinkles in newsagents. Do you ever find that? Now I can’t believe I’ve made one! Need to pinch myself … LOL!!

Around the outside of the card, I’ve used my new A Rose is a Rose stamp set … it’s so elegant! I’ve stamped the two step big rose in Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. I love love love it!! LOL!!

And in the shaker window I’ve stamped the sentiment from God’s Blessings in Riding Hood Red and butterflies from Priceless in Pink Pirouette. I tied the coordinating Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon around the base of the card …

I love the Flower Fusion Too felt flowers … and the new designer buttons!! They coordinate perfectly …

And inside I stamped the rose in the same colours and used the word “wonderful” from Wonderful Favourites … and the words “new baby” from the new Level 2 hostess stamp set … Occasions for All. The sentiment is so true … Elise is a Wonderful New Baby :))

Something old …

Don’t you just love a wedding?  And when it’s your wedding, it’s one of the most memorable and special days of your life.  To help add to how special my friend’s sister’s wedding day will be, my friend also asked me to make tags for “Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue” … as long as I had the time (too kind! what a fun challenge!).  LOL!!!  I couldn’t help but say … yes please, I’d love to have a go!  What a great reason to make something special for someone on their special day!!  And what an awesome idea!!

dsc00671

This is the tag I’ve made for “Something old” … I really tried for an old-worldy look.  To do this I used the technique … emerging colour!  The stamp sets I’ve used for the emerging colour are En Francais, Priceless and Simply Said.  You’ll see the word “Something” from Yummy (Sale-a-bration stamp set – now unavailable) appear on every tag which I hope will unite them all too.  For emerging colour I stamped En Francis in So Saffron, the butterfly from Priceless in the new In Color Kiwi Kiss and then the heart from Simply Said in versamark.  Then I embossed the heart with clear embossing powder.  After that, I pulled out my brayer and brayered over it all in Red Riding Hood Red.   After I finished brayering, I wiped the cardstock with a tissue.

I’ve distressed the edges of the emerging colour cardstock and the So Saffron cardstock.  And I’ve layered them onto Kiwi Kiss.  I’m sorry to say, the ribbon is either retired SU ribbon or not SU at all.

Check back tomorrow for “Something new” …

Elegant Priceless

dsc00397

Isn’t this a lovely card? It was sent to me from one of my party hostesses and I love it! I love the colour combination of Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Purely Pomegranate. And the paper piercing and tearing effect at the bottom of the card are so clever. Trudy even used the Rock n’ Roll technique on the flower!  Now I’m inspired to get out my Priceless stamp set and play with it!

Thank you, Trudy!

Christmas masking

I had some fun doing this card … I played with my Large Star punch to do both masking and reverse masking!  The Large Star punch made my masking a really easy task.  I picked subtle colours … Soft Sky and Sahara Sand … so the photo doesn’t stand out too much, I’m sorry.  It looks better in real life, especially with a dash of Dazzling Diamonds!

I’ve used the stamp sets Short & Sweet and Priceless and added a little more detail with my mat pack.  Enjoy!

Spring Mini Launch Party – Monday 25 August 2008

The new Stampin’ Up! Spring Mini catalogue began on 1 August 2008.  Yeah!  To celebrate, I have been busy making lots of invitations like these two (shown below) for my customers, inviting everyone to my Spring Mini Catalogue Launch Party on Monday 25 August 2008 from 7.30pm onwards at my home in Parklea (Sydney, Australia).  I hope you’ve all received them in the post by now 🙂

This is a close up of the first group of invites I made using the new stamp set from the Spring Mini called One of a Kind and the complementing Boho Blossoms punch.  If you come along to my Launch Party you can make a card using this stamp set and the Boho Blossoms punch … it will be fun!

This is a close up of the second group I made using the stamp set from the Idea Book & Catalogue called Looks Like Spring and the complementing Spring Flower Bouquet punch.

I also used the stamp sets Priceless (down the side) and Everyday Flexible Phrases.  Even if you have not received a hand made invitation, you are still welcome and formally invited to come to my Launch Party.  Bookings are essential, so if you haven’t booked already, email me now!

Priceless 2nd Birthday

Well, here is another toddler birthday card!  We have had quite a few birthdays lately 🙂  Sorry, I’m afraid we haven’t got a 6th birthday coming up … yet!

I made this card a few weeks ago and forgot I had taken a photo of it!  Now I’ve found the photo, I can share it with you.  For this card, I’ve used the stamp sets Priceless, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Fun & Fast Notes and Best Friends Numbers for this card.  I’ve forgotten how useful Everyday Flexible Phrases is!  I’ve used the colours Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.  They go so well together!  And they make such a pretty birthday card for a beautiful little 2 year old girl, don’t you think?

I just love textured cardstock so much !!!
