Just a Note.

This card took about 5 minutes to make! I absolutely love this typewriter stamp from Hero Arts. I used one of my favourite PTI colour combos for this card, Smokey Shadow and Summer Sunrise. I added some Kaisercraft bling to the typewriter to finish it off and voila! Thanks for looking :)

I'm on a roll!!!

Here's another two of the A4 layouts I did tonight. The first one has some very old photos of Ethan. The paper pack is from Nikki Sivils My Lil Monster collection.

The second one is a more recent photo of Ethan with his Great Granny on her birthday. I really love this picture. The background paper is a mystery to me, not a clue who its by. The picture mat is from a Basic Grey pad. I just trimmed part of the flower with a craft knife to slot the photo behind it. The stickers are by Bo Bunny and again are VERY old. It feel great to be using up my stash!


A4 layouts

I never seem to get a chance to do 12x12 layouts anymore, so in an effort to use my photos, I bought a lovely A4 journal from TK Maxx. The LO's themselves couldn't be more basic, but I really just need to do what I have time for! It's time to be realistic, especially with my second baby due any day now!

I used some leftover Echo Park as a base. The green shaped card is actually some packaging from Prima, far too pretty to throw away! I used the Rosie Posie and Beautiful Butterflies dies. The black lace washi tape is from www.freckledfawn.com

Again, this one uses Echo Park paper for the background. I'm not 100% sure where the stickers are from. It was a case of trying to use the enormous amount of them I have accumulated over the years!

I will be trying to do at least 3 of these a week, purely to keep on top of all the photos I will be taking of the new arrival!

By the Cute and Girly Challenge Entry.

This is my entry for this month's By the Cute and Girly challenge. The brief is "Cute as a Button" I used Hawaiian Shores CS for the card base, layered it with black CS and stamped my own patterned paper using PTI's Rosie Posie stamp set. The flowers are die cut from Soft Stone CS and stamped with Hawaiian Shores and Spring Rain ink. The set is called Beautiful Blooms II. I stamped PTI's Library Card stamp on a Project Life journalling tag and added a thank you sentiment from Botanical Silhouettes. The buttons are PTI's Blueberry Sky, ribbon is PTI's Hawaiian Shores and the bling is from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for looking :)



More Thank You Cards.

Another card using scraps! I'm beginning to see a pattern here :) I'm keeping them as simple as possible, as I have quite a few to make.

This card uses only PTI die cuts. I used Trendy Treetops, Picket Fence and the cloud die.

Thanks for looking :)

More Cards Using Scraps

Still trawling my way through the basket of scraps. I'm trying to build up a few thank you cards, so I'll have them handy for after the baby is born. These ones are made using a Basic Grey paper pack. I'm not 100% sure of the name of it, but I really love the colours. The sentiment is from PTI's Simple Sentiment stamp set. Thanks for looking :)


Birthday Card Using Alphas

I have far too many alphabet stickers, so I'm trying to slowly work my way through them. The patterned paper is the yellow flourish paper from Echo Park Upscale. I really love this paper pack! The happy birthday sentiment is stamped on with PTI Summer Sunrise ink. I added a bit of Kaisercraft bling to finish it off. Thanks for looking :)


PTI Baby Card and Birthday Card

Sorry the light isn't so great in these photos. We've been having so many dark and dull days here in Ireland. I've been so lax in posting but my second baby is due in less than two weeks and I just haven't had the time!

I used PTI Night Night Moon for the baby card and added a tag at the bottom.

For the second card, I used Fly Away, Trendy Tree Tops dies and cloud dies. Alphas are from American Crafts. Thanks for looking :)
