Chapter One & English Rose

This is a quick card I made recently using the Chapter One paper Pad and the English Rose stamps. I've actually used an empty bracket frame bit of paper from out of the pack of one of the paper pad books and blended distress ink inside the 'mask' then used StazOn ink to stamp out the roses. 
It's a very simple yet effective technique!

Party Animals - Life is a Circus!

A silly layout made using the Party Animals paper collection ... it is a very fun paper range this one, and since I have been holding onto this photo for ages with no idea what to do with it, I must say that I'm pleased this collection came along when it did and gave me the perfect opportunity to scrap this adorable photo of my funny boy Noah!

Chapter One Show Girl

Here is another Layout done using the divine 'Chapter One ' paper collection, I'm simply having a ball with this paper range ... and those gorgeous paper bows that Heidi Swapp came up with ( the challenge now is to do a layout NOT using a paper bow!!! Bhahaahahaha). The design I have used for this LO is a very popular one these days ... it basically breaks down to a patterned boarder strip of paper running the length of the page, a photo off set from that to one side and a cluster of embellishments overlapping and joining the two. It is a simple and stunning effect that I plan to use prolifically in the future!!

Chapter One Blessings

I'm just in love with this new paper collection, I can't help myself from wanting to do layout after layout using it. This particular page was great fun to make, I used some of the masking techniques that I'd been watching Heidi Swapp use recently, and I must admit ... I'm hooked! I also Love this photo of my three youngest girls and our last Japanese exchange student.

Party Animals Cards

This range would have to be the easiest one of all to make cards out of .... how adorable are these little animals?? Kaisercraft's new paper collection 'Party Animals' is proving to be extremely popular, so I think we will be seeing a lot more of it in the future!

And below you find one last card. This week I was watching Heidi Swap on You tube who said that Bows are the new flowers! OK then Heidi ...since you are the man, I decided to go with that and watched her demo on how to make these cute bows .... I love the look of them!

If you follow this link you too can watch Heidi Swapp demonstrate how to make these adorable Bows!!
Have Fun! : )

Chapter One Cards

I made these Cards from the left overs in the Chapter One paper pad after completing a couple of layouts ... those paper pads are AWESOME for card making!!
This first card is made using a new paper folding technique that I just learned,  I love the flowers it makes .... the three cards below are simple ones that I will use to teach classes with.
