I didn't put a sentiment up on this one and was wondering if you have any thoughts on what it shud be? maybe "Have a cheerful day!"? Anyways..that's me wishing you a cheerful day and let's get on with the card shall we? ;)
Materials Used : Ivory Cream Cardstock, Cosmo Cricket PP, American Crafts PP (loving this range! the clouds are so darn cute! :)) Ek Success Border Punch

Lets move on to my DT project for this week. I'm loving Jenni Bowlins pp. Bright and beautiful designs. For this week, I scrapped pictures of my daughter, latest pictures of her. She's also my best friend, I am thankful to have her. We are very close, we can talk about anything. Its that special bond that we share together. Gonna miss her loads when she goes to Uni!
My baby girl is all grown up! She's very tall, taller than me!
I stamped using Prima Clear stamps and embossed it with the Zing (Aqua) Embossing Powder. The flowers, leaves and shapes are cut out with my Slice.
and independent too...
I embossed the transparencies using the cuttlebug embossing folder and swipe it with StazOn. For the tag, I cut it out with my slice and stamp on it.
'A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend'. This is so true!
I cut out the flowers, leaves and shapes with my Slice. Thats my version of handmade flowers.
Hope you like it. To all, happy crafting!

Dunno about you, but I always avoid busy pp, especially the ones with big patterns / designs on it. However, for this month I've got the Jenni Bowlin pp in my kit and one of it is with big flowers. This is what I did.
This month is all about keeping it simple. Yup, am trying my best to keep it simple and clean, although am itching to stamp here and there.
I used plain cs as the base, cut out the big flowers from the pp and paste it to the corners. The wordings is cut out from the Slice Design Card.
Stamp 'Photo Facts' onto a plain cs and ink it with distress ink.
Add stickles to some part of the flowers & wordings. I stamped a lil bit around the flowers using versamark.
Till then, happy crafting! Oh, don't forget to check out the new arrivals at Papier. Yummy stamps and papers!

MME Fine & Dandy, Portobello Road, Lost & Found
Anyhoo..here's a layout for Papier and this round I'm using Cosmo Cricket for the background! The colours are cheery and fun so it's comes as no surprise that I scrapped my gurl's pic yet again ;)
The rest of the embellies are basically fussy cutting of My Little Shoebox Patterned Papers & Cosmo Cricket too. There's also a sheet of Vintage music notes and cut out Graphic 45 Patterned Paper as well as American Crafts Thickers and a wee bit of stitching.

For this month I've got the Jenni Bowlin pp in my kit to play with. This is my take. I wanna keep it simple. I used TH Distress Ink to create the colour mixture for the borders.
Stamp and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
The wordings is cut out from the Slice Design Card.
I used plain chipboard to cut out the bird (TH Caged Bird dies) then I embossed it with Zing embossing powder.
Tip: If you don't want your LO to look so plain, try mixing the Distress Ink.

Materials used: Jenni Bowlin pp, Plain cs, Prima Clear stamps (Timbres Transparents), TH Caged Bird dies, Ice Stickles, chipboard, Distress Ink, Clear Embossing powder, LePlume marker, Prima Rhinestones, Zing Embossing powder (Aqua).
