A fabulous card that has room for many to sign

So, I am a member of a 100 group female barbershop chorus called A Cappella West.

We also have in our midst the Australian champion quartet Hi Jinx.

We are competing in the Australian competition from 18 to 20 May.  I have created a card for the whole Chorus to sign and present to the Quartet members. I made it a 6"x 6" card with several inserts so all the members have room to leave their good wishes.

The Chorus colours are pink and black and these ladies are stars, hence the choice of paper.

I'm entering this is the Scrapping 4 fun challenge - anything goes.

Birdcage die cut decoration

Well, this month I have done 4 projects for my Designer team position at Unstampabelles.

Nothing like overachieving. The 3 cards are in a previous post,

Here is a decoration made of a birdcage die cut. As the design rule of 3 states, odd numbers always look better, so I have 3 of them.  I originally made a beautiful large birdcage for my craft room. I have now hung these 3 decorations from it using ribbons.

Here are some pics.

This is the corner of my craft room. I hope that my cat doesn't decide this is a fun new cat toy!

Dream Big

What do you think of this layout? It's very pink! I like how it turned out.

I've used the sketch from the 15 April Stuck Sketches challenge.  Here is the sketch.

Three birthday cards featuring die cuts and birds

April's challenge at the  Unstampabelles blog is:

To Die For - use a die or two or three....

April  -To 'die' for.......   

TWIST  add a bird or two or three....

IO Dies - Bunnies 


Cheery Lyn Dies - chicks

This month I got a little excited and made 3 different birthday cards.

1) A simple card using a lamppost die cut, a gorgeous paper from Webster's Pages and a die-cut paper that holds the sentiment with some embroidery floss.

2) A few of you may recognise the teal die cut background paper with the birds on a branch. It's from a Prima Say It With Crystals backing sheet. They are just too pretty not to use, don't you agree? I've added some papers, a die-cut dragonfly, some buttons and rhinestones.

3) Lastly, I have a lilac card using the same happy bird day paper from the card above. I've used a die cut circle and heart, plus the envelope is a die cut also. I love that scalloped edge.

Hope you join us this month and please do follow me if you like what you see.

Double page layout - pink

Scrapbookit's April 2017 challenge was a double page sketch (see the image below). You had to use flowers, texture and stamping.

For my texture I cut some circles from floral patterned paper, spread mod podge all over it, layered clear sequins all over each one and then sprayed them with gold glitter paint.

Here is my finished product.

Here is a close up.
