CASEing the Catalogue #2

Welcome to CASEing the Catalogue #2. Today inspiration is straight from page 17, using the Stitched All Around bundle.

Stitched Label Framelit dies have so much detail, and gives the effect of texture. This card has a lot of layering, and layering is not something I do a lot of, but this card was super fun and I am hoping to do a lot more layering on future cards.

I hope you enjoy this week's CASE card,

Abstract Impressions - Layering Card

Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Springtime Impressions thinlet dies are amazing, I have created this layered card using only the card base and two pieces of extra card.

We have hit winter here is Australia, and although I love winter, I love bright colours more. Pairing Pineapple Punch ( the nicest, brightest yellow ) , with Mint Macaron, and Balmy Blue, this colour combo is so pretty.

And have I already said this card is made with only 2 pieces of card and the card base.

I hope you enjoy this card and tutorial,

CASEing the Catalogue #1

The New Annual Catalogue is now LIVE, and what a great catalogue it is. Packed full with wonderful samples, sketches, colour combo's and so much inspiration.

Do you use the catalogue to its full potential? I love to Case the Catalogue, (Copy and Share Everything) and this can be done by Copying straight from the catalogue, copying the sketch, colour scheme, or just an element.

In an attempt to be more constistant, I plan to bring you a case from the catalogue every week, at this stage I plan to bring this to you every Tuesday. Please don't hold me to it, I work full time in my own business, so I work long hours, but I promise to do my best for you.

The first Case comes from the Tropical Escape Suite on page 120, and the card I picked is the first one in the photo, every single photo screams to me, but I love the different greens all being used here together. 

This suite is one of my favourites in the new catalogue, but this Designer Series Paper is so so pretty.

So this is how my card turned out:

Would you like to know how I put it all together??

Quick and Simple card using Lilypad Lake Bundle

Another Quick and Simple card, and this sketch is one of my go to's. Background stamping and then popping the image up to highlight it works so effectively.

I have also kept with the colour theme of black and white, but is easily changed up with a little colour. This card was not intended as a baby card, but with changing to pinks, blues, yellows, or greens, it would certainly make a great baby card.

Using minimal supplies this make a great start to creating cards for beginners.

Hope you have enjoyed this card, until next time,

Memory Keeping Let's Get Hopping #10

Welcome to another Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop, whether you have hopped from the talented Jennifer Frost, or you are starting your journey here, welcome.

Memory Keeping has be around forever, I started like most people when I started having kids, so they would have something special to look back on as they got older. My style has changed (which is great because my pages were very detailed, usually with paper piecing, and one double page could take me two weeks to complete). So lets just say my children's album's are not up to date. See picture below, of my earlier style.

When Project Life (Pocket Scrapbooking) came out, I loved the simplicity, and thought the task of finishing the kids album's were so daunting even with the quicker version. So I have done a little here and there over the years, but would love to be more productive in the future.

In Dec 2016 our family went on holiday's to the US for three weeks, I have printed all the photo's and some pages started, this blog hop has made me get moving on it all again.

These cute little building's have been white embossed onto basic black card, this stamp set has just retired, but I bought it with my US scrapbook in mind, and I think it turned out fantastic.

The title was made to look like the US flag, I know the N and E should have been blue background with white stars, and I did originally have the letters cut out in Blueberry Bushel and white embossed stars, but it made it look quite messy, so I changed to look a little more neater.

I have taken inspiration from the talented Jennifer Frost and her Artisan Design Team Blog Hop in May. I loved her papers behind the photo, so Thank you Jenn for your inspiration.

I hope you have been inspired to start or get back to scrapbooking, the talented Diana Tillery is next on the blog hop. Please feel free to leave a comment, and I hope to see you again soon.
