Sweet Memories … Sweet Layout!

Sweet Memories … Sweet Layout!


Sweet layout, special memories.

I don’t scrap!! Well, not until now! The birth of my first granddaughter in June last year has me thinking that I would like to record the multitude of special memories grandchildren bring!  I didn’t have the time to do that when my daughter was young and although I have good intentions of doing something with all Joelle’s baby photos, the huge box of images is just too daunting.

Little E’s pile of photos, however, is far smaller at the moment and this particular image is one of my favourites. This is a full 12″ x 12″ layout, it is a huge space to fill when you are used to working on card sized projects! I just love the end result.

I have used my new favourite Kraft card, on a Pumpkin Pie background. Stamp sets are my “go to” favourites, Gorgeous Grunge and Kinda Eclectic.

Gorgeous Grunge and Kinda Eclectic

Ink colours are Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Stazon Jet Black. The patterned paper is from the Stacked with Love Paper Stack (out of the new Occasions Catalogue) and I have also used some White Vellum cardstock stamped with Stazon Ink for layers and for the punched butterflies (Elegant Butterfly Punch). The Tea Lace Paper Doily has been spritzed with a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Spritzer made with re-inker and rubbing alcohol.

Blended Bloom featuring Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities

The floral feature is Blended Bloom coloured with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities, with some Crystal Effects in the centre of the flower. And I coloured the Basic Rhinestones with the blendabilities also … I love how you can create any colour rhinestone or pearl you need with a quick swipe of these fabulous alcohol based markers.

Don’t forget that during Sale-A-Bration, you can get the Blendabilities sets of 3 co-ordinating markers out of the Annual Catalogue FOR FREE – one with every $90 worth of product purchases, from now until end of March!

Words die cut with Little Letters Thinlets.

The word SWEET is die cut with the Little Letters Thinlets … and the best thing is these letters are small enough to use on cards as well.

What do you think?  Creating cards will always be my first love, but do you think I will make it as a “scrapper”?
