I found this card on Splitcoast Stampers that I really liked and decided have a go. It uses a stamp set I absolutely adore, Scribble This. I also used the new flower brads from the Spring Mini Catalogue and lovely designer paper in Pink Pirouette from Candy Lane.
Here is the Just Beachy stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue again. I really love this stamp set and have found it to be really versatile. This acetate box has the sun image stamped with Cotton White Stazon (also from the Spring Mini Catalogue). I stamped the jandals image around the outside in Rose Red on Very Vanilla and matched it with Pretty in Pink.
I have been challenged recently to try a new technique. I saw a recessed window card on Splitcoast Stampers and decided that instead of just admiring it, I would have a go. This week I got a Pumpkin Pie stamp pad, so out came the Washington Apple DSP and here is my creation...
Stamps: Great Friend (116889). Card/Paper: Baja Breeze (116207), Whisper White (106549), Chocolate Chip (108599), Kiwi Kiss (116204). Ink: Chocolate Chip (100908), Kiwi Kiss (111835), Baja Breeze (111833). Accessories: Flower Designer Brads (112583). Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).
I don't have this stamp set, but I would really like it. It is the Great Friend stamp set out of the Spring Mini Catalogue, which I borrowed from a friend to make this card. I also used the new flower brads from the mini catalogue - very yummy!
This is my first foray into scrapbooking! I really enjoyed creating these three 8" x 8" layouts featuring my kids at our favourite weekend-away-spot - Kawhia. I used a lot of the same techniques that I use when cardmaking (there is a lot of cross-over), however and I found it more time-consuming than cardmaking as I had to get it "just right". I learned a lot while doing this and next time I would do a few things differently. I still love what I created!
