Forest Friends

A new stamp set that I've aquired recently is Forest Friends. The little animals images are just adorable and it's a perfect set to make sweet cards or use for scrapbooking baby photo's; as I'm doing at the moment.
First up I have this small square card.
I've started of with a base card in Kraft, then added the two strips of Certain Celery and So Saffron cardstock. On the Celery cardstock, I've used the Friendly Words wheel to make a background. I've used some of the Celery ribbon from last months promotion. Then I've stamped the three images onto Whisper White cardstock, using marker pens and ink pads, then cut out and mounted onto the card. It gives more of a 3-D effect this way and I really don't mind cutting!! Then I've finished off the card with a button and twine.
Onto the scrapbook page. As I mentioned before, this set is great for baby albums. I'm getting around to scraping all the pages of Caden's 1st year, to make up a small album for him. And it's nice going back, looking at the photo's and remember certain moments, wondering where the time disappear too.

This picture goes back to his first months - a very sweet moment sucking his thumb. Something he only did for a short while.
The colours for this page are Ballet Blue, Barely Banana and Choc Chip. I've used the Tres Chic BG stamp on the Banana cardstock. With a strip of Choc Chip, I've used the eyelet border punch to create the edge along the bottom of the page. Once you have finished with this punch, you will notice that you are left with a very thin strip of cardstock. I've also used this peice on my layout which the tree and deer sit on. It's amazing what you can do with the left-over peices of cardstock!
I've also used one of my favs - Tidy Alphabet stamp (retired) And then I've completed the page with a row of paper piercing.
I'm glad I could finally share some more creations with you. I do have another layout already made up, using fabric and felt; so I will be sure to share that with you very soon as well.
