Bazzill and Kaisercraft products- Mini Album by Rose-Anne

These albums I make up myself from chipboard.Check out Cropworks blog for more pages from this album. I have made quite a few of them in varying thickness of spine. They are so easy to make and people love to look through them.

Cuttlebug and Ribbon

Many of you know I love the metallic cardstock.I love using it and sanding it as the white shows through. I also love the Kaisercraft stamps and these 2 work well together, Kaisercraft and Cuttlebug.The sentiment has been popped up. The ribbon has been manipulated on a sticky back to sit up in places. This card can be given to both males and females.

Cuttlebug with Metallic Pencils

I found these metallic pencils in a shop the other day and I just had to have them. They were saying " Take me, take me." So I did and I bought 2 sets for myself and Jessica. I outlined and coloured these flowers with the pencils.
The sentiment is a Kaisercraft stamp.

Cuttlebug and Mini Album

I used a Cuttlebug Die for the embellishment on the front of my Swimming Lesson Book.I love this book and where the pages are joined I didn't completely seal and you can add tags like I did with more photos. I have made a round min-album like this but haven't finished it yet. When I do I will share.
The title has been done using a Crafter's Workshop Stencil.

Swimming Lesson Mini-Album

For more images of this mini-album check out Cropworks .I made this album over the school holidays and based it on Chloe's swimming lesson.

Cuttlebug and Crop-o-Dial

I have used the Crop-o-Dial to punch out the stamens on this bugged flower.

I then cut out the silhouette and glued it onto the card with Gel Medium and put a small bow on the stems. The sentiment is the Love stamp from Kaisercraft.

There is a Lily in My Garden

Look at these lovely Lilies that come out once a year. I love them and what a pity these types of flowers only flower once a year. I suppose I have something to look forward to.

Marie Antoinette

Cuttlebug with Disguise

I like part of this Cuttlebug folder but don't like the skulls so I have disguised them with sentiments and tassels.

One would not know there were skulls there. The "with love" is also from the borders folders and it has been inked.

Cuttlebug and Kaiser Stamps

I have bugged metallic cardstock by SALT and sanded it.

Put some Kindy Glitz on the flower centres and the heart is a Kaisercraft Stamp in which I stamped part of love you instead of the whole line.

Cuttlebug and Lace

Have you ever stamped a word and it didn't come out even or there were parts missing? I did it with Happy Birthday in this card. So I got out my brown pine point pen and went over the stamped image. It now looks like there is a shadow behind the pen work. Some pearls were added from Kaisercraft and the flower is from Cropworks.

Flower Card

This is just a quick and easy card but I like the look with the flowers. The flowers are punched and inked and curled a little to give the 3D appearance. I have glued another flower in the centre. The sentiment is part of a Kasier stamp that was too long so i only used part of.
I love flowers.

Tri-Fold Template

Here is the Tri-Fold Card template I made up. Very easy. The width in the template is 15cm but you can make it any width you like. The previous card is about 14cm wide. However, to fit on a 30cm piece of cardstock or patterned paper you need to use these measurements.
I plan on doing a series of these cards with all sorts of ideas. You can do them like the double fold cards i made before Christmas or like the one I just did.
Have fun creating!!!!!!!!!!!

Tri-Fold Card and Kaiser

I made this card from Bazzill and Patterned Paper scraps. The hearts I drew freehand by using pencil and on the back of the patterned paper before cutting out. I have glued them onto the cardstock in the appropriate places. The sentiments are Kaiser Stamps and the pearls are also Kaiser. The corners are from a swap I went in so i have no idea where they came from.

Australian Open Tennis

Every year Ros and I go to the tennis and this year was no exception. We saw some good matches and was surprised at the racial tension between Serbia and Croatia with the fans.


Another of me on our coastal walk from Sandringham to Brighton.

Then we went to Rippon Lea House the next day and what a mansion that was in its day. We had a fantastic tour guide and learned so much about history.


I have just returned from a week in Melbourne where I stayed with my friend of 46 years, Ros. It was so cold and windy on the day I arrived but it soon got hot.Here I am with my jacket on at South Bank on the Yarra.
We walked everywhere and here I am the next day at St Kilda Pier that I love to visit every time I go to Melbourne and yes buy a yummy cake and eat it all up. LOL.

At Wiseman's Ferry

I seem like I have been on holidays all holidays. I spent a few days with a scrapping friend Dawn at her holiday cabin on the Hawkesbury River for a couple of days.We went for a motor boat ride up the river and the rest of the time sat and scrapped and talked. it was a nice break away from home.
I then spent 2 days with Melanie and the girls.I feel refreshed.

Rebecca's Christmas Box decoration

The Science staff at my school are so creative. The experts say that only one side of our brains should be working and but we have proven them wrong-both sides of our brain works so well because we are so creative and intelligent.
Rebecca made this lolly box as a table setting for the staff at Christmas. It looked so nice on the table.

Gary's Mini- Album explosion box

Gary also made this explosion box for his wife for Christmas. He is so talented.

Gary's Tag Book

My friend Gary made this lovely Tag Book for his wife for Christmas. How lucky is she? It is made from wood.

Wedding Mini Album

SALT produces these mini-albums that are ideal to store cards and photos and any mementos from any occasion. I love them. i am going to store all my wedding things in it. They are over 26 years old. The chipboard letters and shapes are SALT and the patterned paper is K and Co.


A simple idea using the Product Performers
Stencil, an embossing pen and Kindy Glitz.


This layout I did ages ago. It is simple but it didn't need anything as the highlight is the photo of Melbourne. I am here now.
The flourish and the word has been done with a Versamark Pen and a stencil from Product Performers and embossed in gold.

The circles are a stamp from 7 Gypsies
