I am not a massive scrapbooker, I have made a few smaller pages and I have also made a few digital scrapbook pages but I decided that it was time to start scrapbooking a bit more! I take soooo many photos of my baby that it seems a shame that they are just sat on my computer not being used!!! My first proper layout is an Easter Layout and I have used the Treasure Box Designs Easter Train! It is just so cute I totally love this cut! I am now using my Cameo far far more than my Cricut at the moment so everything that I have cut has been done with the Cameo! The base of the layout is DCWV texture cardstock not that you can see it as its covered! The cloud paper is a digital paper I found lurking on my PC, the spotty grass is DCWV and the plain grass is also DCWV ( I really love DCWV wish it was easier to get here in the UK ) almost all the elements that have been cut are from DCWV with the exception of the chick!!! After alot of inking ans stitching I am really pleased with the final result!!! All I need to do now is add the piccies!!!
I really love making Mother's Day cards! I have only made a few this year but this is my fav as I have used alot of yellow which I never really use and I think the end result it lovely, it's so bright and happy! The base of the card is cut from the Wild Card cartridge using my cricut, the MUM topper is from the silhouette store and cut using my Cameo machine. The cream and yellow flowers were purchased from Hobbycraft and the lilac flower I made myself!
I ran a facebook competition for Stacey's World, the winner would receive a free card for sharing my facebook page! A winner was chosen and she requested an Easter card for her niece! I never make Easter cards so it was such a lovely change. I have been hanging onto these Easter papers by DCWV for ages, this just goes to prove my theory to my husband that eventually everything will have a use!!! I used an 8"x8" scalloped card base and set to work stitching the layers together using my new John Lewis blue mini sewing machine ( which I love ) I also used my cricut and the Mickey Font cartridge for the lettering! The chipboard bunny was also from DCWV and I finished off with 3 gems from a bit of bling! I am really pleased with the end result and it was such a lovely colour palette to work with!
