I chose the football pics to go with the circles in the sketch and added other circle embellishments. (I think this is the first time I’ve added stitching to a layout too!)

Using: Kaisercraft card stock, stamps, clear dots and pearls; Stampin’ Up paper; Inque Boutique stamp; Stamp It embossing powder; Thickers alphas; Crate Paper stickers; Micador water soluble pencils; papers, ribbons and cotton from my stash. IMG_4320-0

Cherish sympathy card

I find sympathy cards difficult to create. I want them to look nice, but not too fiddly and “pretty” so that the card is more about the sentiment than the design.

My family recently lost a friend who has left behind a wife and three little kids. It has been devastating for the whole community. I just wanted to let the family know that I care, that I will cherish the memories of fun times spent together and that they can call on me for support.

Using:
Crate Paper Portrait Collection papers and sticker
Stampin’ Up card stock

We love catching up with our friends in Albany during the holidays. The kids always have a great time together. This wall at the newly renovated cinemas made an irresistible background for a photo.

HB

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
