Some Layouts to share

Hi ladies,

Give me a looooong weekend every weekend. I just loved having time to scrap ..... and not design or plan classes or make & takes, just create things I love for myself. Sounds selfish I know, but sometimes you really miss having the freedom to do this.

I joined in on some of the fun challenges over at scrapboutique's cyber crop.

This is based on a Michelle Fowler sketch & I have no idea where I found it. Sorry I tried to google it with no luck.

This was the Sunday roast.... a blind scrap. Lot of fun as you don't really know how it will turn out!!!

I love this page. I have been wanting to do it for a long time but haven't felt ready... I was very close to my Nan and have missed her dearly since she passes away 18 months ago. Her life was an inspiration to me and she will always will hold a very special place in my heart...........yes, I do have tears in my eyes writing this !

Journaling reads "Did you ever know that your my hero?"

I have had this LO in my head for a while. As you can see I am loving my new tree stamp by unity.

Loving their stamps right now!

Thanks for visiting.

Big Shot Mini Album

Hello, I hope you all had a great Easter break. I loved how life slowed down for a couple of weeks. We are back if full swing now with the kids back to school.

One thing I did over Easter was lots of Scrappin.....Oh It was the best. My Mojo was flowing so I just ran with it. DH was on night duty so at last count I think i made seven layouts, one canvas & two cards. Can't wait to share them with you all soon.

Today I have a mini album to share with you. I love mini albums as they make the cutest gifts for people. This one would make a sweet Mothers Day gift.

Products Used:-

Scallop square Bigz Die (the one out of our summer mini) Yes it is still available to order as a carryover product. 115950 $42.95

I love this die as it cuts through fabric like butter. My pages are made from Duck Cloth (spotlight) and the covers are book board covered with fabric.

I have stamped with StazOn ink the Fleur De Li's image from Bliss (sale-a-bration set). I then sponged some cherry cobbler ink over the outer edges of the fabric square & sprayed it with my shimmer paint mist (home made glimmer mist using shimmer paint). To find out more about making your own shimmer paint Heather Summer shares a great video. Have a look HERE.

I have machine stitched some black card stock to form the pages.

Finished off with a felt heart & button. I have set some jumbo eyelets (118431 $17.95 for 60 eyelets) using my crop-a-dile (108362 $54.95) and tied together with back satin ribbon (117285 $16.95 13.7 mtr roll).

Thanks for stopping by.

xoxo Cassie

Easter Punch Art

Hi have been busy making some cute little easter projects to share withyou all. I love easter punch art.......can you tell?

I found the tutorials on how to make these little cuties at Creations on Paper . Kay Shi has given a step by step tutorial on how to make them. Thanks Kay for sharing.

I have used one of our new stamp sets from the Winter Mini Called Eat Chocolate. It co-ordinates perfectly with the NEW Decorative Label Punch. Click on the catalogue on the side bar to many yummy products.

I wanted to make another rabbit that kinda reminded me of our little buuny Doc. He is a miniture lope so I came up with this little adorable.
