Scrap Day

Yesterday I went to a local scrap day, I managed two pages which is quite good for me as I am new to scrapbooking.

I'm very pleased at my results and Poppy is delighted with them which is great.

Creative Weekend

Hope everyone is enjoying the bank holiday weekend. It has been a very wet & windy day here and so we have stayed at home. I have been very lucky and managed to get hold of the Hanglar StAnglar summer club kit via a very good friend. You can only order these stamps if you live or know someone who lives in Sweden or Norway.

This is a wedding anniversary card for some good friends of ours who will be celebrating their 27th anniversary. I'm quite pleased at how this has turned out, especially I cut the heart free hand!

Pink Tilda

This image is from the spring kit by Magnolia, this is my favourite stamp from the kit, they are all lovely but I think this is girly and I love girly.

Tear bears

I love tear bears, this card is for my nephews 1st birthday. Tear bears are made by drawing around a template onto mulberry paper. You then wet the edge of the paper with a paintbrush and tear the paper. When dried you can use chalks to add a bit of colour and then glue the pieces together and add features. Great fun with excellent results.
I ordered my set of pattern books from Teddy Bear Treasures from US

Second Page of Scrapbook

This is the second page of Poppy's scrapbook, I am really enjoying making this for Poppy.

First Scrapbook Page

I have decided to make Poppy a scrapbook for her 11th year and I have started with her birthday. I thought that this would be a good year to choose as there are so many exciting things happening for Poppy this year. Hopefully it will be something that she will look back on in later years.

This is my first attempt at scrapbooking and probably a bit basic but hopefully I will improve as I work my way through the year.

Wedding Anniversary Card

I'm not sure of the name of the image I have used, I won it Maya's blog candy but it is very cute. The stamp is from a set by Autumn Leave called Ticketed and finally the paper is by Cupcake.
The weather has been so lovely lately that I'm not making so many cards but spending time sitting outside enjoying the sunshine.

Happy Birthday Poppy

Today is Poppy's 11th birthday, we have a little tradition that we always take a photograph of her on the front doorstep, don't know why but we do, it is interesting looking back over the years at how much she has changed. We had a day out and had lunch at Pizzahut, not good for the diet but enjoyable.
