First Birthday Card

Tomorrow it is a the first Birthday of a special little girl. My girls and I are going to visit her after school. We will watch her enjoy her first Birthday cake. I made this flip card for her first Birthday. I think it looks really cute. I especially love the Strawberry Slush cardstock and the silver glimmer paper. I used my new Shilouette Cameo cutting machine to cut out the card. It makes it so easy. I hope she likes the card and has a great first birthday.

Just a quick one ....

I found this pattern for this cute card. It sort of looks like patchwork. It reminds me of this cushion my mum made called Cathedral Windows. I used the DSP Epic Day This and That and the new Baked Brown Sugar card stock. Better go things to make. Cheers Nicky

Giving scrapbooking a go ...

Yesterday I was encouraged by a friend to give scrapbooking a go. I have never done it. I usually make cards and 3D projects. Anyway I thought I might as well take up the challenge, considering I have all the equipment. It was also an excuse to use my new Shilouette Cameo digital cutting machine. So here are the first pages I have made. Let me know what you think.
I used the Designer Series Paper called Storytime from Stampin'Up. This paper is not available anymore, however I still love it. The stamp set Storybook Friends is still available.
If you would like a free tutorial to make the following card, email me and I will send the tutorial to you.

The new 2013-2015 in colours.
I have used the stamp set Serene Shilouettes on these boxes. I stamped in the matching in colour and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge to add the splotches to give the boxes a bit of character. Finally I added a couple of tickets for a bit of decoration. I used the That's the Ticket stamp set on the matching ticket punch.
