Baby Shower


I had the pleasure of attending a friend's baby shower on Saturday afternoon, so of course I had to make a card to go with the gift. I used this weeks layout challenge from Inkspirations for the inspiration for my card. Here is the layout challenge:

I knew that I wanted to use some patterned paper in the background so I decided on which paper to use first then picked some colours to go with it. I didn't want the card to be over the top baby, as that is not me or my friend. I was quite happy with what I came up with.

Embellish Challenge

I had a birthday card to make for a very special friend and the colours for this Embellish Challenge reminded me of her.

Here is my card:

Again I have utilised some of the techniques from Convention, even some by Shelli herself!

With my Grandma's Birthday coming up I needed to make her a card and decided to utilise the colours from this weeks Just Add Ink Colour Challenge. The colours are:

Here is my card:

I was able to utilise a few techniques that we saw demonstrated at the Stampin Up Convention, including tying the perfect bow and bleaching.

Alice turns 2!

Our lovely God Daughter, Alice recently turned 2 and of course there was a celebration in honour of this event. I thought I would utilise the Inkspirations Colour Challenge as an inspiration for the card for little Alice. Here are the colours:

Here is the card I made, I used a technique that was shown at the Stampin Up Convention, double cut butterfly by the lovely Kirsty (hopefully there will be more about convention later).

Kirsty also showed us a gorgeous butterfly banner, which I just had to make for Alice.

Of course there was cake to be had and then fun on her present from her mum, a trampoline. Needless to say Alice was exhausted after all that birthday fun and I am told she was that tired, she took herself off for a nap!

Tim and Alice go in for some birthday cake.

JAI 66 - Just add a Flower

I've finally managed to complete and post a challenge before the cut off time. I have been doing challenges each week but haven't found the time to post them to the internet. This week my lovely husband has made sure I get something posted.

Just Add Ink's Just Add A Flower challenge was a perfect opportunity for me to make a mothers day card for my grand mother.

Along with doing this challenge both my husband and I have been busy making swaps for the Stampin' Up convention next week. We are both attending and are looking forward to the whole experience. We hope to see you there. :)
