Eli Mae - Bunny Baby - Scrapbook page

Whilst rifling through my library of photos I came across this cute photo of our GD Eli Mae when she was a baby dressed as a Bunny Baby - couldn't resist scrapping a girlie page for her.

I have used  a selection of papers from the makingmemories Je t'Adore range available at Grimsby Crafts. All edges have been distressed and inked with Vintage Photo.   The ruffled tulle lace was a find at Boyes in Louth, the diamante flourishes and flowers all came from The Hobby House in Tetney.  I have used my new Martha Stewart punch - another favourite like my Doily punch and here it is.....

I will be teaching a slighty simplified version at Grimsby Crafts in the week using the same papers etc.

The Shabby Tea Room - White & Bright

Over at The Shabby Tea Room Challenge site the theme for this week is White & Bright - use white and another colour so .... I used their inspirational photograph of white and yellow!!

I have used some lemon and white papers which I have had in my scrap stash for over a year now - don't know the name as I always chop off the make/design when I use it - tut!!!  Tilda is from the new 2011 'You are so special' range which landed on the doormat this morning :O).  I have coloured her in with Distress Ink Refillers on watercolour paper, the sentiment stamp 'Life is short, do what you LOVE' is by Hero Arts.  Flowers are again from my box of ever increasing flowers that I seem to buy frequently from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The lovely floppy voile ribbon is from Boyes and here it is....

A Tilda card for 2 challenges

Over at A Spoonful of Sugar the theme is Thank you and at Magnolia Stamp Lovers the theme is Blue. So for once - a card that fits 2 challenges.  :O)

I have used papers from Jack & Jill by Prima and added some lovely matching Prima flowers as well.  Tilda was coloured in with distress ink refillers on watercolour paper and slightly edged with Vintage Photo and mounted onto a shimmery blue cardstock shaped from a scalloped nestabilitie. I have added some little butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch, the pearls were originally white but I coloured them in with a blue copic pen!!!  The letters are tiny tiny little Scrabble stamps that I bought a few years ago from PaperParadise - found them in a little hexagonal box on the SALE table and bought them :O) - the perfect size for this card.  Added a bit of lace and here it is...

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - New Beginnings

What better way to start the New Year off then with the lovely theme of 'New Beginnings' - the challenge over at Simon Stays Stamp.

I have used some lovely pink patterned papers from the Kitchengarden paper pad from Panduro which my lovely daughter got me from Grimsby Crafts.  I have distressed all the edges with a pair of scissors and inked with Vintage Photo.  The flowers are made up with the Retro Flower punches and little pearls added to the centres.  New Baby was printed on the heart shaped scalloped punch, and Tilda Baby was coloured in with Distress Ink refillers.  And here it is...
