Birthday Card – Son

It is my sons birthday coming up and as always I was stuck on what to do for his birthday card.  I think male cards are always harder to make anyway.

I decided I wanted to make an easel card as I havnt made one before and it didn’t look hard to make.

I used some instructions from the ‘Whiff of Joy blogspot’ which were really good. Thanks Jacqui. xXx.

I found the card quite easy to make and the instructions easy to follow.

I hope you like it

Hair-raising – Sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers

This is a layout about myself (for a change) and the flat top haircut I decided to have (somewhat unwisely) when I was about 17 years old.  Unfortunatly the quality of the photograph isnt very good, but I still wanted to scrap it.

I think the photograph was taken on Tynemouth Longsands but I am not 100% sure.

I used sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers which was my main inspiration.

I used:

Bazzill Basics in two different colours (sorry I don’t know which)

Patterned Paper by Kaisercraft – Sweets – Raspberry Cream & Creme Caramel

2 paper strips from Simply Cards and Papercrafts – Free Kit – The Never Not Collection.

A journalling block from a free paper pad from Cardmaking and Papercraft – MME – Quite Contrary.

Chipboard flowers.

Thickers in Rainboots – Colour Powder.

Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Amber coloured.

Liquid Pearls in Mint Green.

Ooh, I nearly forgot – I Cosmic Shimmers on the chipboard flowers after embossing each of them with different pattern using my Cuttlebug.

I had fun scrapping this photograph as it brought back memories long forgotten.  I was going out with this lovely guy at the time and he had a ‘flat top’ haircut and I remember thinking ‘I should have my hair like that’.  Well I don’t really think it was the best style for me.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine.

Scrap Tiffany – Week 19 Challenge

On Monday, May 10, 2010 on Scrap Tiffany the challenge was to scraplift another scrapbooker.

I saw Doreen Vasquez’s-‘Something Old, Something New layout on Scrapbook Challenges.  This is Doreen’s layout below.  Isn’t it fab!!  My scraplift is below Doreen’s.

Here is mine:

Would love to hear feedback on both layouts.

A day without scrapbooking is a day without sunshine!
