flower power

This is a Tri-Fold card I made for a technique card swap.  I loved the flower paper and the stamp was from
"The Greeting farm" it is from a set of three called "Miss Anya Collection".  They are gorgeous and I love their stamps.  
Hope you enjoy looking at my cards.

Summer Fun

Hi, I made this card for a swap that I was in, it was called "Summer Fun" and I thought she was just the thing.
I have to go to the shop and get the name of the stamp and then attatch.  I have all my stamps on some plastic sheets inside page protectors in albums, much neater and easier to find.  The background is made using Tim Hotlz Distress inks and blenders with torn paper used as a mask.  I loved how this card worked out.

Hi, This is a different type of album that I have made, it is one sheet of 12 x12 paper which makes 1 page.  this page has 3 pockets, 1 in the front side, 1 in the back side and 1 on the top.  Each of the pockets hold pull out tags made to fit. the backs of the tags are bare for her to write on.
I got this from youtube,  the persons name is Little peace of my Hrt and the project is called " pocket page mini album tutorial".
I made this for my daughters trip to Japan.  there are 5 pages  and that gives 15 tags to go into them.   To be different with this one I used fabric to cover the book and binding tape on the outside end in black.  This gave the book a lovely look . I hope you like this project I did.  thanks for looking.

anemia album


This is the 3rd book I am making for my daughter,
this one is for the photos she has amassed going to Anemia  shows, she has signed photos and we had to find pictures of the characters that they were the voices for.  As you can see this book is bigger than the other but not the biggest.
Inside each pocket is a large picture of the small one on the page.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my book.

Zoo Album

Hi. I have been playing with making paper bag albums,  I got the idea from looking at Leda's scrapbooking life.  This one is the first and it is of a zoo trip my daughter and I took.  We traveled 3.500 k around the eatern side of Australia going to the Dubbo Zoo, Monato Zoo, Adelaide Zoo, Melbourne Zoo, Canberra Zoo, Sydney Zoo and then back home.  The trip took 14days and was non stop we traveled and then went to a zoo and then the next day back on the road, it was great.

The paper bag album was made with wine bottle bags that had been trimed down to 12" long then folded in half.  Each album had 5 bags which made 10 pages.
Inside between each page was a piece of cardboard trimed to 11.5cm x 5cm, there were a total of 11 of these.
then you needed to cover each page with card to your wants.10 of these trimed down to fit in the page.
You needed covers for the book and I used mat board, I went to the picture framers and asked for any offcuts and they sold me a heap for $10.00.  I used glue to stick the pages to the 11 page supports, the glue was Glossy Accents from Kaszazz.  I used tape to stick the page covers on and glue for the book covers.
on the outside of the book you need to cover the end so it looks neat, this I did with more card stock trimmed down to the size of the book .
I hope you enjoyed seeing this book as much as I had making it.

Hi, this is a card I sent as an Angel card, to someone who is not well.  I love the fairy by, The Greating Farm, they make so many beautiful stamps wish I could get them all.
 the words are from the Kaszazz line of stamps and I thought the sentiments fit the card well.
I do hope she likes it.
