Catch Up - 6x6 Scrapbook Pages

Another two pages from the scrapbook album, sorry about the pictures, my camera seems to be on the blink. The flowers were made using my spellbinders flower die along with a few roses bought from my local craft shop. The papers are taken from the K&Co Ancestry range and again the edges have been distressed with ink.. I didn't have time to write things on the pages. I have included tags that are hidden behind the pictures so that my Sister and her Husband can record their own memories. Thanks for looking.

6x6 Scrapbooking

Where has the time gone? I have been so busy in August trying to complete various projects that I am sorry to say my blog has suffered along with card making. It's not that I haven't been crafting, just not entering challenges. My free time has been spent frantically trying to complete scrapbook pages, a bespoke wedding invitation order and another wedding invitation order from my portfolio. Over the next few days I will start to upload what I have been working on. Back to today's entry. This is two pages from the Silver Wedding scrapbook that I had been working on for my Sister. I have now given the present of which I think she was very pleased with. I have used K&Co Ancestry papers, distressed them and embellished with various shells and peel offs found in my supplies. I am really looking forward to making a card just because I want to and have loads of new rubber stamps that I haven't had chance to try out yet. Thanks for looking.

Silver Wedding Card - Two Challenges - Truly Scrumptious & Dutch Dare

This is the Silver Wedding Anniversary card I have made for my sister and her husband. I can't believe how the time has flown, I was very young when they got married. Anyway back to the card, I have used another excellent sketch over at Truly Scrumptious created by Heather. I've had to adapt the sketch a little so as not to cut through the flower in the bottom corner. The extra twist was to use beads somewhere in the design. Whilst blog hopping instead of uploading or crafting, I have come across another card challenge blog called Dutch Dare and their challenge for this week is to use lace. Lucky for me! Below is a view of the inside. I've got to be honest, I hate doing the inside of a card. I think its because I have spent so long looking at the papers and deciding on the design for the front, I just want to move onto the next project. In case you are thinking that I used a terrible picture, the faces are hidden on purpose. Items Used: To make this card I cut down a piece of A3 Stardream Opal card to 20cm square. I have used grey bazzill card and cream glitter card as matting. The beautiful flower paper and frame was taken from the Victoriana kit from Create and Craft. The flower in the bottom corner was part of the paper and I have cut around it so that the frame could sit behind. The sentiment was printed onto tracing paper and then I used my Hot Foil Wizard pen to trace over it to fix the foil. The roses and leaves were bought from my local craft shop and made into to spray. I finished it with some beads I had in my box and a heart brad The inside of the card used up all the left over pieces. Thanks for looking
