Project Life

Just have to say: I love Project Life and Stampin' Up! together. Project Life is a simpler way to scrapbook your memories in photo pockets with cards. I find it really simple to print my pictures, choose my filler cards (unless I have every pocket filled with a picture - and sometimes I really do have that many photos!) and embellish a little if needed. The above photo is a page from my 2014 album.

Have a peak online here to see all the Project Life items that are available from Stampin' Up!.

Stamps: Endless Wishes
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Paper: Everyday Adventure Project Life Cards, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Paper Doilies, Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, MDS to create the flags with journaling on the picture.

Happy Watercolour!

I love watercolours and the Happy Watercolour stamp caught my eye in the Occasions Catalogue. Pairing this stamp set up with gold made it pop even more! The flower image is embossed in black, then coloured in with aqua painters using Calypso Coral and So Saffron ink. Time to send this on to a friend for her birthday!

Birthday Goose!

Just noticed as I posted this that I forgot to colour in the goose - I had meant to, but it turned out really well without colour! Have you ever made a mistake on a card and not noticed until it was too late?
Stamped the goose on watercolour paper (the better paper to make really pretty watercoloured images) with Black Stazon ink. Then added 2 strips of Champagne Glimmer paper to add a little sparkle. The Woodgrain texture and Linen Thread give the card a more earthy feel.

Stamps: Wetlands
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Watercolour paper, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Linen thread, Artisan Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Woodgrain Embossing Folder
