Relaxing With Mum

Here's a little scrapbook page that I did the other week. I'm trying really hard to do at least one Layout a week although with Ally Pally last weekend and a weekend away with friends the week before I have slipped the past few weeks!
The flowers aound the sides are decoupaged up so they stand out and stickled the centres and I just love the bird and branches paper so much that I had to add one to this layout!!

Cupcake card for a man?!

I made this card for my uncle, was really pleased with myself as I really struggle making cards for men, showed my other half and he said I couldn't send it to my uncle because of the cupcake... he's not a cupcake person!


Well I was really fed up because time was running out and I actually thought I had done a good job with making a cupcake card look masculine!


So I asked craft friend's opinions and they said send it, so I did!!! He said he loved it which is all that matters!


Cupcake: Quickutz Revolution die

Papers/Cardstock: Basic Grey paper & Stampin' Up Old Olive & chocolate Chip cardstock

Happy Birthday Maggie

A card for a very special friend!! Hope you have a lovely day hun!
Sorry it's a really poor photo, what you probably can't make out is that the card is on acetate. I've stamped the swirls on the acetate with White Stazon and glittered them with stickles. Cardstock: Stampin' Up (last years in colour) Baja Breeze & Stampin' Up (this years in Colour) Soft Suede. I really love these two colours together!
The flowers are a Sizzlit die called Floral Fusion which is a Stampin' Up exclusive... well you can never have enough flower dies!!
Stamps: Happy birthday is in a set by Hero's Art and the Swirl was from the Glitter Pot, I'll have to come back to you on the names!
