Baby girl card

One of the ladies from The Inklings (demo team I'm apart of), Kari Hughes, had a beautiful baby girl just before Christmas so I decided to make her a card to say congratulations. As I've made so many baby girl cards this last 6-9 months I had trouble coming up with something different! I then settled on using the DSP from the Rock-a-bye girl simply scrappin' kit as my inspiration. Here's what I finally come up with...

Stamp Set: Nursery Necessities
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Old Olive, Rock-a-bye-girl Simply Scrappin' DSP
Accessories: Old Olive Crads, Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals

All the layers are adhered onto the card using dimensionals. This is why in the photo it doesn't look like its lined up properly. In real life the dimensionals just gave it a really good pop.

Secret Santa

Hi all,

I always feel like I'm a bundle of excuses when I'm posting on here, So I guess today isn't going to be any different! I want to apologise for not posting like I said I would. My computer has been doing stupid things. I have done the posts and they are saved they just haven't been published and everytime I go to publish them my computer has a spastic and freezes. We are hoping that the issue has been resolved and I can start getting some of the posts published.

Ok... Every Christmas myself and the other Inklings (Demo group I am apart of) participate in Secret Santa and we send each other Stampin' Up presents which is so exciting. This year I received Mellow Moss taffeta Ribbon and Rub On's from the summer mini. To say thank you to my secret santa I decided to make her a card using the products she gave me. Here's the cute and simple card I made

Stamp Set: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Eyelet border punch, Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon, Chit Chat Rub Ons

Thanks for looking

Pen Holders - SU Style

Hi everyone!

Happy 2010 to everyone! I hope you are enjoying your year so far! Things have been hectic here and I haven't had time to scratch my nose! It really saddens me that I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like to so I've made a New Years Resolution to actually get my pictures uploaded and blog more often! I love sharing what I do so am resolving (I guess that's how you put it) to blog at least once per week! I really hope that I am able to do this and look forward to sharing my projects with you more often this year.

I know Christmas has passed but I thought I would share some of the things I made this Christmas for my family and friends. Firstly I made some pen holders out of tins from tinned goods! They are so simple to make and look so affective. All you do is cut your DSP to size, Stick it around the tin with double sided tape and then decorate! And how effective do they look??

Here's two of the ones I made using the ski slopes DSP from the Spring Mini. You could easily substitute this for other DSP.

Here's a close up of one on its own

And here is one filled with my favourite products! How lovely do they look? When I gave them out I filled cellophane bags of homemade shortbread biscuits and had them sitting in the tins! Unfortunately at time of taking the photos all the biscuits had been eaten... I wonder who was the culprit... Hmmmm...

Thanks for looking and I will be back in a few days with other projects :)
