Christmas Cards

Well folks I'm finally back.  I spent a month in Canada visiting my mum and then when I returned I managed to pick up a bug which has put me out of commission for the past two weeks.

Anyway I'm pretty behind in my Christmas preparation but here are a couple of cards made by Kelly using my latest released images Hannah's Snowman and Holly Angel.

Both stamps are still available for purchase here on the blog, or over on the website.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Zocalo Park 2009 - Sugar Skull Digi

Today I have a layout that I created using my newest release digi image -Sugar Skull. This image was designed by my daughter as I really wanted a sugar skull image to use on these particular photos.

The image on the layout has been digitally coloured and then printed out onto Xpress It blender card.  I chose this paper to print on as it is a high white colour and the image printed lovely on it.

Below is a flower I made using a section of the skull.  I cropped the original image before printing so as not to waste ink.  I printed this out five times, cut the images out and used them to form a flower. 

The image is available for purchase on my website.  You will receive a digitally coloured version as well as an uncoloured version.

You can also purchase it here for a limited time.

Sugar Skull Digi Stamp with bonus coloured version

Halloween Cat Cards

Here is another new cutting file I just designed today. I think this is one of my favorite Halloween files so far this year.

I've cut the largest card on my Cricut using the 12" x 24" mat.  The oval has been cut using my Petite Oval Spellbinders.  I found that one of the larger ones was a perfect match for the plastic bubble.
I've inserted the bubble in the hole and filled this with Solar Seeds (candy & chocolate sunflower seeds)
The purple, orange and grey card stock is Bazzill.  The black cats were cut from large sheets of heavy cardstock-possibly Canford. 

You can purchase the file from my website and also from Cut and Create.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend

I've added some red diamantes and a black pearl, and put some fibres behind the wording which is from JustRite Stamps.

I thought I would share a few pages from a scrapbook I made my daughter for her 16th birthday. I like to mark the milestone birthdays with a special book for her to keep. Usually I do a book all about her, with pages dedicated to her likes, ambitions etc, but this year I decided to do something a little different. Her birthday party was a Mexican Fiesta theme so I made a complete 8 x 8 scrapbook album.   Now all she has to do is pick her photos and pop them in the album. 

 Below are some of the pages from the album.

I didn't really have anything with a Mexican theme, so I made a set of cutting files.  The flower on the last page is also one of my cutting files- Carnation.

The Fiesta Pack is now available on my digi website.  It is also available over at Cut and Create.
