English Garden Layout

Friday, July 31, 2015

I rarely get the chance to scrapbook, but had a hard time getting to sleep one night recently and decided to create a simple layout. I didn't quite finish it that night as I began to feel I could finally get to sleep. I finished it the next morning.


It's fun to be able to stamp when creating a layout, and that works well when you use one photo. I wanted this photo to be the only one on the page and printed it at 7"w x 5"h.

It's great that my daughter captured the splash of my grandson's rock throwing into the creek.


From this side view you can see that some of the items I stamped, I popped up. I used the Project Life Grid Cards for all of these. If you wish to know what stamp sets I used, check below.

Thank you for visiting today, and hope you'll stop by again tomorrow.

Happy stamping!

Remarkabe You - Water Lily in Watermelon Wonder

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

I don't know what this colour looks like on your computer, but on mine it's much too bright. Hope yours looks more like the right colour - Watermelon Wonder.

I used the Water Lily (and the leaves again) for this 5" square card.


Love how the leaves turned out! I stamped them two times on scrap and then the third time onto the card piece. They turned out nice and soft and light! Just like I wanted.

The Lily I stamped onto the Very Vanilla square with Watermelon Wonder and then onto a piece of Watermelon Wonder scrap cardstock. After drawing the white lines with a white Gel pen, and cutting it out, I stacked atop the stamped one on the VV square.


Inside I continued with the soft Watermelon Wonder leaves.


So, hope you've liked the "remarkable You" cards! Stop by tomorrow to find out about when this class will be.

Happy Stamping!

Remarkable You - Silver Magnolia

Monday, July 27, 2015

I love navy & white, navy & gold, and navy & silver. It sometimes takes me a little time to decide which colour to coordinate the navy with when I decide to with navy for a card. For today's "Remarkable You" card I chose silver, because I wanted to use rhinestones.



Then I decided to add white by using a tiny piece of sponge and applying it to the silver embossed image.


Love the Magnolia, and enjoy seeing them when they bloom here in Victoria, BC.

Just a simple inside...


Tomorrow's "Remarkable You" card will be made with the yummy "Watermelon Wonder"! See you then!

Happy Stamping!

Remarkable You - Leaves

Sunday, July 26, 2015

Some people never have enough Birthday cards, but I never have enough Thank You cards! When the "One Big Meaning" stamp set came out, I was excited. It's always nice to have something different to work with and create with.

So this will be another Thank You using both the "Remarkable You" and "One Big Meaning stamp sets.


I love the leaves in this set and can see that I will use it a lot. I combined Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz when stamping the leaves.

From the side you get an idea on how this card came together.


And, on the inside...


A simple but beautiful card. Check below to find out what I used to make this card.

See you tomorrow for another "Remarkable You" card!

Happy Stamping!

Remarkable You - Cala Lily

Saturday, July 25, 2015

You've seen cards I've made in the past with this stamp set, and now I've created some new cards for an August class using the same set.




Today, I'll begin with the Calla Lily card.


Stamped in Slate Gray, lightly coloured with a Stampin' sponge, and the stamen coloured with a So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker, I fussy cut the pieces out to pop up. A few layers on this card.


The Blushing Bride strips I curled with my bone folder and looped. Blushing Bride, Minta Macaron and Black are gorgeous together. Inside, I just stamped a little by off stamping/second stamping with Blushing Bride.


See below for what I used and be sure to stop by tomorrow for a peek at the next card for this class.

Happy Stamping!

Friday, July 24, 2015

It is always exciting the day your Paper Pumpkin Kit arrives at your door! And July's kit is one of my favorites! I didn't stray too far from the instructions this time, I just added an extra layer of Tangelo Twist inside and out.

The stamp set is another special set that can be used over and over again and is so easy to use and line up the two step stamping.

A non Christmas card using the Wondrous Wreath Bundle. This cheerful card for any occasion is a great card to give.
