Acetate Card

One of the latest tutorials on splitcoaststampers.com is how to make a great acetate card, of course I had to give it a go. I love the look of it, and I'm thinking I may even do these as some of my Christmas Cards this year. So here's my version. I hope you like it. Please excuse the poor photo, it's very windy outside so you can imagine what it would be like trying to take a photo of acetate standing up.

Materials List.
Stamp Set - Snow Flurries, Warm Words
Cardstock - Whisper White, Ballet Blue
Ink - White StazOn, Ballet Blue, Whisper White
Accessories - White Organdy.

Arrrgghh it's a pirates life...

Ok, that's a lame title, I know. But for the challenges at essentialbaby.com.au I needed to create a boys birthday. This is what happened. I know I've seen the 4 circles before but cannot for the life of me remember where. I guess that's one of the hazards when you surf so many sites with such great ideas. And please forgive me, I know the photo is a bit wonky, but its rainy and windy here today. Just getting the card to stay upright to photograph was fun.

All material is Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets - Fresh Fillers, Ahoy, Matey.
Ink - Basic Black
Cardstock - Pumpkin Pie, Ballet Blue, Basic Black.
Accessories - Slit Punch, Corner Rounder. 11/4 inch circle punch, dymo labeller (not SU).

My Girl

I spent the weekend scrapping, now all the people that know me, you can pick yourself up off the floor right now. It's not that much of a shock. Ok, so it is. But that's beside the point.

I have been really lax in my scrapping lately, for some reason I've been making a lot of cards. So I spent the weekend, organising my supplies, getting photos printed and doing layouts. I started a mini album for the grandparents of my DD's school photos, and I did her class photos from last year. I also found these great photos on my PC and was inspired to do a layout.

Tomorrow I'm going to concentrate on my DS. I have some great photos of him that need to be immortalised. I'm also dying to get my hands on some of the fantastic paper in the new mini, I really want the petals and paisley and notations sets.

All materials used are Stampin' Up!
Cardstock - Cranberry Crisp, Recollections Paper
Stamp Set - Warm Words
Inks - Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Ivory Organdy, Old Olive Brads.

What a great time to be a hostess this month! If your workshop reaches $600 you can receive a choice of 3 sets valued at 53.95 each. The sets available are Petal Prints, Nice and Easy Notes or All About U. So not only would you get a free hostess set and $70 worth of free product but an extra free set. How cool is that? And the other good thing, the special runs from the 1st August to the 15th September! Don't forget to email me if you'd like to host a workshop!

Ohh Pretty Sparklies....

I know this is the 2nd card in a row I've posted using this set, but it's a must have! I love it a lot. I was also browsing through the latest copy of Creating Keepsakes last night and was inspired by their black, white and pink article. So today I created. I also decided to add a little bling, although it doesn't show up too well in the photos. But bling is always good.

I hope you like it.
