All Smiles

I love this layout of my son, he looks so cute in the photographs which I am sure were taken on Christmas Eve of 1990.

I used a 12×12 sheet of mulberry paper as a base and I also had some mulberry paper frames,which I decided to run through the Cuttlebug.  I used the bubbles embossing folder to give it a bit more texture and to make it stand out a bit more form the base paper.

I used Bazzill In Stitch’z templates to do the double circles and arrows which I stitched with embroidery thread.

After that I cut a ‘truck shape’ from truck paper (can’t remember the make, but can find out if anyone needs to know) and cut wheel shapes from funky foam. I love funky foam – it is so versatile!

I used the truck paper again to stamp onto and then heat emboss the title letters, I also inked around the edges.   There is a little tag hidden behind the round photo frame with a little ribbon attached so you can pull it out.

And that’s it.

Hope you like it.

Birthday Card

Birthday Card for my purple loving daughter in law.

For this base I used a A4 peice of Kanban foiled swirls cardstock, then added a smaller than A5 peice of purple mirror card.  I added corner & happy birthday semtiment peel offs and stickers for the Panduro Tilda range.  To finish off I added a length of purple organza ribbon and tied it at the front in a soft knot.

I lated added ’21’ to the card using American Crafts Glitter Thickers when I remembered it was he 21st Birthday-DOH!

Hope you like it.

When I put this layout together I was going for the ‘more is more’ approach.

I had lots of bits and bobs that I wanted to put on and could decide which to use so I ended up using most of them.

I used Picasa to create a photo collage and to add the title in the middle of the photographs (which reads ‘A Merry Christmas’ – each letter is a Christmas tree) .  For anyone who hasn’t used Picasa it has some great features you can used to ‘jazz up’ your photographs, so it is worth checking it out.

Anyone – hope you like it.
