Greetings for the Holidays at Scrapbook Boutique (video).

Back today with another card for Scrapbook Boutique.  How are things going on the Christmas card front in your house? Here is a very simple idea to make those ‘last second’ cards, you know, the ones that your husband comes home and says ‘can you just make me….. ‘ and it’s usually about 10 or so cards lol.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Other Supplies:

Over the Edge at Stretch Your Stamps!

Back with a wonderful over the edge technique that I love from Laura.  I thought it would be fun to try and get some bold colour with watercolours, of course I had to add just a little sparkle in the flower centres but otherwise I kept it pretty clean & simple.

Good Friends at Purple Onion Designs (video)!

Back today with another card for Purple Onion Designs and I’m really enjoying mixing up these new stamps with some of my old faves.  And if you look closely I even used some patterned paper too, only 4238 sheets to go…

  I decided to film as I created so you can watch it if you like.

Out of the Box!

Definitely out of the box for me, I felt like making an unexpected card for one of my close friends who turned 40.  Not my best photos….   but I’m sure you get the idea, ps her 5 year old son thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread, the card is constantly in a state of flux!

Story Time bookmark for Purple Onion Designs (video)!

Something a little bit different today for Purple Onion Designs.  I’ve been ‘needing’ a book mark for ages and finally decided that I’ve just gotta make it.   I had heaps of fun watercolouring with my Distress inks and couldn’t think of a sweeter image to use than Sunny Blooms.
