NPSS Layout

I worked on Cole's grade 11 layout that I will share next time, and then I made this layout for the school he is currently in.

It works like a divider in the album between the grades when he changed schools.

I used all retired papers on this one:  Fundamentals, Swan Lake, and La Vie En Rose.

Happy creating!  :)

My Maternal Great Grandparents

I used the CTMH Hello Lovely paper packet and Complements to showcase this old photograph of my ancestors taken in 1915.

The photo is of my Great Grandparents on my mother's side, and my Grandfather is the little ten year old boy standing in the center of the photo.

Over the years after this photo was taken, my Great Grandparents went on to have 6 more children, including a set of twin boys.
5 boys and 5 girls.

Pretty cool.

Heritage scrapbooking.  It is important to document where we came from...

Happy creating!  :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Here is a sweet card I made using the True Love stamp set.

True Love is Close To My Heart's Operation Smile stamp for the year, where they donate $7 USD to Operation Smile from each purchase of this stamp set.

And what a sweet stamp set it is!!!

Operation Smile is a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children.

The cost per surgery is $240 USD, so every little bit helps!

This is what the complete set looks like...

Available until July 31st!

Happy creating!  :)

3x3 Valentine's Boxed Set

It is almost Valentine's Day....

Here is a sweet 3x3 card box which is roomy enough to hold a bunch of 3x3 cards and envelopes.

I have four cards and envies in there, but there is still lots of room for more.

There is something about 3x3 sized cards that I love.

And that Operation Smile True Love stamp set, gahh, so cute!

Happy creating!  :)

Wise Guy Birthday - More Random Stamped Cards

I took out the CTMH Wise Guy Birthday stamp set, which I haven't really played with yet, and I random stamped a piece of 6x6 White Daisy cardstock.

Then I used my journal pen to doodle around the cake images to define the shape.

I cut up the cardstock to create these three cards.

I have always enjoyed random stamping to create different patterned papers.

If any local people would be interested in taking a class on how to random stamp, send me an email, text, or leave a comment.  We can set something up!

Happy creating!  :)

Hello Lovely Thank You Card

This is a great way to use up some scraps!   And it sure is pretty...  ;)

I used the new CTMH Hello Lovely papers, and the Hello Lovely Cardmaking stamp set for this gorgeous thank you card.  

I just love the look of the layered circles of patterns and colours.

Happy creating! :)
