Scrapbooking - Kyle




























Just a few more scrapbook pages for Kyle's album of his recent birthday and also his present - roller blades.
For the first two page layout, I've used the In-Colours and Treehouse DP. Perfect cardstock and co-ordinating papers for 'boy' pages. I've teamed that up with 'Eat Cake' stamp set and also dressed up the '8' chipboard peice in Cranberry crisp ink and stamped over that again.

The second two page layout uses plain cardstock in Ruby Red and Ballet Blue. The title 'roller blades' is stamped with Tidy Alphabet (my all time fav alphabet). Then I've used the 'Be Happy' stamp set to make the tag embellishment. This is the perfect set for scrapbooking.

When scrapbooking, I always start off by choosing my photo's and combining them with coloured cardstock or patterned paper. Once I've decided on the colours, I design the layout, which usually falls into place quite easily. But that can be one of the hardest elements in scrapbooking; so I will always suggest the SU Idea book & Catalogue. This book is filled with different layouts and it's really easy to pick out a layout that catches your eye, then change the colours and stamp set. You'd be surprised how different it looks and you can call it your own.
Once the layout is in place, I add some embellishments, which I usually keep simple so as not to take away from the photo. Then some journalling to tell the story and your layout is done. Lately, my scrapbook pages have been 8x8 size which is wonderful to work with. Not too big and not too small!! Great for all those special photo's.

Hope you enjoy these layouts as much as I've been creating them. I'm having fun scrapbooking lately, can't get enough of it!! You're obsessed - that's what Warren would say!!!!!

Scrapbook pages





Here are some scrapbook pages of the latest photo's I've taken of Tyson & Liam. I've done two different 2-page layouts as they both have their own albums. I've used Treehouse DP - I just love how this paper co-ordinates with the new in-colours. Great for boy pages!! I've used chipboard and also stamps from the new mini catalogue.
Hope you love them.

Inseperable



These two little boys are nearly inseperable. They will play for hours every day, amusing themselves with their toys or imagination. I love to watch them play and listen to their constant chatter. The special bond they share, never ceases to amaze me and they are so very blessed to have each other as friends.
I love taking pictures of the boys and with these two I've done some photo editing and added a soft glow to the picture!

Cards from Spring Mini Catalogue

Just a few more cards to keep you all amused and hopefully inspired! Haven't been posting for a while but I've certainly been busy creating.

These cards use stamp sets from the new Spring Mini Catalogue - Crab & Co and Polka Dots and Petals.








This card was a make-n-take card at a Stampin'Up demonstration party I had last night. It's always great to get together with friends, to introduce Stampin'Up and have fun sharing idea's.
