Card for Mum

It was my Mums, dads, sister in laws and my birthday AND mothers day last month so all in all busy busy for card making. There were also 2 births in March so some cute little cards to make - one pink and one blue! I forgot to take a piccy of one of the cards I made my Mum, but here is the other one.

I used papers from Forever Friends "Partytime", Papermania Oriental Spice paper stack, letters were cut using the Sizzix Sizlit "LimeLight", embellishments from stash and watercoloured stamped image "Striped Vase Sketch" by Hro Ats

Paperbag Album

Hi all

Well I am quite chuffed with myself, over on Trimcraft forum Jude arranged a New Year Swap of a paperbag album on the theme of "Friendship".

Well having never even seen one before I undertook the mammoth task of decorating 10 pages (including the front and back cover). I was late finishing the album missing the deadline by nearly 2 weeks... luckily my swap partner LavenderCards had a lot of patience with me!

Here is a matching card I made using a Penny Black stamped image from Katherine at LavenderCards.

Here is the front cover:
It was a lot of work to complete the album with hidden pockets, tags and surprises!

I used Bazill Bling, papers are mainly DCWV Floral Prints, Papermania Amethyst and loads of different stamped images including Whiff of Joy, Magnolia Tilda, hÄnglar & stÄnglar, prima flowers and lots of embellishments from my stash!!!
