A birthday card for a 9 year old boy. I was going for a mix of tough and fun. I love the diamond plate effect of the embossing on the mirror card and the crackle paint on the alphas. The lime in the background softens the design a little bit.

Using: Cherry Arte Boy Story and Tropics papers; Stampin’ Up card stock; mirror card from stash; Lil Davis Design alphas; Kaisercraft paints; Cuttlebug embossing folder IMG_3784.JPG



This is a birthday card for my bestie using some scraps of the papers I used for my latest layout.  I hope that the bright  colours give the card a happy feel.

Using: We R Memory Keepers White Out Collection papers; Bazill card stock; Cuttlebug embossing folders; Cricut Basic Shapes cartridge; Stampin’ Up ink pads.


This layout accompanies “Me & You”.  I wanted to use the rest of the birthday photos and play with the Cricut – Mission Accomplished!  The journalling is under the middle pic.

Using: Cherry Arte Boys Boys papers, Scrappin’ Up cardstock, Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge, Weave Extras Teeny Tiny Letter Stickers.

Me & You

I haven’t scrapped for MONTHS!  I’m on school holidays at the moment so took advantage of the spare time to get into my craft room.  This layout is designed to go with “7” and shows some memories from my son’s 7th birthday in July.
