Well I have been a very busy little girl the last few days. Thursday I took the kids to Toowoomba and met up with some friends to see Max and Millie from the Barnyard Show on ABC. That was at 10am, then we all piled back in our cars and had lunch together at McDonald’s. I then took an SU order over to my hubby’s work and had a chat (I always do…just can’t help myself). Then we flew over to K-Mart and had some photos taken with Pixie Photo. They have just gone digital and offered me a free sitting with a free 10″ x 13″ portrait. Not only that they also have changed their style. More freestyle (which I love) and none of those ugly little suitcases and hideous coloured backgrounds which are really hard to scrap. Some of you know exactly what I mean… LOL. It was one busy day but the kids had fun and I finally got photos of all my four children together.
Well on to business….. of sorts. I am still playing with Christmas card designs. I just bought the Crazy for Christmas set so I pulled it out and done some quick easy ones. My idea for the deisign came from the catalogue. It is such a good source of inspiration. I find myself looking at it heaps.
I liked it so much I did two versions, one portrait and the other landscape. I chose my own colours and wanted to do something a little different to traditional.
- Stamp Set– Crazy for Christmas
- Cardstock– Sahara Sand, Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky
- Ink– Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Staz-on Black
- Accessories– Purely Pomegranate and Sft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon
- Tools– Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mat Pack and Tape
Isn’t it just and adorable cute?!
By the time I have finished playing with Christmas card designs and choosing which will be this years card I will have enough to post to all friends and family…LOL. I hope you are not sick of seeing them yet as my Mum is coming over one day soon to do her cards to so I will have more to show and tell soon.
Since I was on such a wonderful flow I thought I would do some more. I wanted to do something with a set I haven’t used yet. There was, surprisingly enough, heaps to choose from. I better get my act together hey?! (Don’t answer that Kolina) I ended up choosing the Priceless Set.
Once that was done though I went blank and couldn’t come up with any ideas. So I went looking on the Splitcoast Stampers site for inspiration. If you are ever stuck for and idea this is a great place to go. A lot of talented people are on this site.
Oh my God! There was heaps and heaps of cards done with the Priceless Set. 2572 to be exact! They were all amazing. How could I choose, but then one really caught my eye. They were colours I haven’t as yet used together and very well put together. I totally CASED it. Couple things I used were different but still the same idea.
- Stamp Set– Priceless and Spring Solitude
- Cardstock– Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip
- Ink– Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow
- Accessories– Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
- Tools– Cuttlebug, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dimensionals, Mat Pack and Tape.
If you do look at the other one you will see the subtle differences, different stamp, ribbon and cuttle bug die and my card sizes are definitely different.
A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I have done some scrapping. I know, I know, I haven’t posted them up yet. Well here’s the thing. My smaller lens attachment has been dropped on its head by the kids and it is totally ruined. The only thing for it now is the bin….BUGGER! So all my photos are being taken with my telephoto lens (55-200mm). It’s doing a very good job, don’t you think?
You should of seen me the other day standing on the kitchen table with my layouts on the floor and I still couldn’t fit them in. (not forgetting I only do double pages) Hubby may have thought I might be trying out a new job of tabletop dancing…LOL For all the good I was actually doing I may of well as been.
So as soon as I get a new lens (or a new camera) I will have some pages up. Then the barrage of abuse I receive from my friends will be abated….LOL You know I love you girls!
Thanks for dropping by!
