Flirtatious Speciality Paper

I made this layout recently which is very dear to my heart. This photo was taken at my nans funeral. She was the most amazing lady. Not a day goes pass that I don't think of her and miss her dearly. She loved pink and was so creative, just great at anything she tried.

I have used the flirtatious speciality dsp. The paper pack has the most beautiful doily die cut sheet. Its perfect for cutting up to make these cute little doily's for your pages. My butterflies are cut with the bigz Beautiful Butterfly die (LOVE THIS!!) and the 1 3/8 circle punch to create the banner along the bottom of the page. Thanks for popping by.

Canvas Stamping

Good morning,

I wanted to share with you all some canvases we did recently at my lovely friends Jeana's Stampin Up Workshop.
We both have been playing with some mixed media techniques of late, so decided to try something a little different.
The ladies Misted the background with simmer paint mist( see this link for more info on this technique), embossed DSP for the grass. The flowers were stamped with StazOn and coloured with various water colouring techniques.

I tried to make a more male variation for those of us with little boys in our lives. The ladies were amazing, they all got messing and had some fun trying new techniques.

Thanks for visiting

Beau Chateau

I love this paper which is available in the current Stampin Up Catalogue called Beau Chateau (122357). I realised I have never scrapped a photo of our wedding. It a very simple page. Most of the background is printed on the paper. I have stamped once with Elements of style (120045) just left of the photo. The cute little envelope is the Scallop Envelope Bigz die (113462).

I love how romantic and dreamy the papers are. They are $18.95 for a pack of 12 (two of each design).

Happy Valentines day

Happy valentines day to you all. I have a card to share today. It is part of the Scrapbook Boutique February challenge, to create a project using the photo as inspiration, with the theme love.

I was inspired by the cupcakes and one of my favourite colour combos so I decided to join in. One thing we love to do in Embellees classes is re-purpose, I have used a cupcake wrapper (red with white spot) as the background paper on my card. I have been wanting to try these heart punched flowers for a while now.

I love how it turned out. Now to put it in the mail to one for my lovely friends. Enjoy you day. I hope lots of LOVE finds you.
