Boy Layout using the Cuttlebug

Here is another layout I did for a boy using the Cuttlebug and a train die. I cut the border and then used a couple of the trains on the layout.
Other products used include Bazzill cardstock and MM rub ons.

Nanna Page

This Nana page was made using Paper Inklings Patterned paper and paper doilies and SALT chipboard hearts and letters, Kaisercraft pearls, Bazzil cardstock and Adirondak  paint dabber for the edges and colouring the doilies.
The paper doily flower was painted then the centre cut out and then box pleated to the shape required for the flower.
This paper is double sided and the reverse side was used to cover some of the hearts.

This tree is in Melanie's backyard. It has the most beautiful red flowers. It is an Australian native called a Eucalyptus or common name Gum Tree.

Boy Layout

I was asked to do some boy layouts from some ladies who come to a few of my crops. I did this page layout with the year 7 students I do scrapbooking with every Thursday at lunchtime.
this is an old Scrapbooking Australia paper and I have teamed them up with SALT white cardstock.
I scrunched and tore and pleated the paper and glued it to the cardstock.
I have gone around the edges of the cardstock and hearts with a Cranberry coloured dabber.
The hearts have been cut from Bazzill cardstock.

Spring has sprung





Fungi ( not a flower)
I love spring when all the flowers bloom. These photos were taken in Melanie's yard
in November after all her flowers had bloomed. She loves Gerberas and has lots of different colours and long and short stem ones.

Stars and Swirls Christmas card

A friend of mine showed me how to make this card. Thank you Vesky for getting my mojo back. I have been in an uncreative mood of late. I think I was burnt out in all areas of my life.
I used my Cuttlebug and the Sizzix texture plate called Stars and swirls. The sentiment is also from a Sizzix texture plate that I cut up to get the sentiment.
I drew the stars free hand.
The border is a scallop punch by Fiskars
