Hey Everyone thought you might like to see....

thought I would very quickly show you a very special card I made recently
I made this for a friend to give to a relative that was getting married and I must admit I did enjoy the process of making this card as it is so delicate and I love how the papers/flowers and little saying all work.....

 this is the little saying I used for the front of the card
The pic below is the once I have used for the inside....I printed onto watercolour paper, distressed the edges  and lifted. It certainly made the inside "POP" a little
I also created a special envelope by making one just a bit larger than the normal card envelope for my size card ( using my envelope maker )  I then scored some lines on the outside of the already created fold lines - only about .5cm  this created a little  buffer for the card to sit nicely in and not rub so would loose all its "pretty"
to the centre of the main base I cut 2 small lines either side of half way about 2.5cm apart and then threaded ribbon (matching to the card)  through and when the card was inside I tied a nice bow on the need for adhering the flaps as the ribbon holds everything in place and looks quite affective.
Ok told you it was short and sweet
Take Care and
Happi Scrappin' till next time

Hey Everyone in Scrappyland.....

Guess what......its time for a Little Bo Bunny Mini Album using Soiree papers
I have really enjoyed creating this little album and there is enough room for up to 30 photos....however if you used smaller ones on some pages or in some folders you could apply a lot more, there is 14 pages to complete
Every page has a little pocket of some kind for you to add your photos or Journaling
I have not added any photos yet as when our first little grandie is born I am going to "steal" her and take some of those cool pics in planters and pots etc......shush don't let her parents know!

here is a couple of sneaks of the album....cant put up to many till after the class but then I will show you some more of the pages

 the photo above shows the front cover.....I have covered the title in some metallic  acrylic paints to match the cover papers and think it actually gives it a really nice soft look
 this photo shows the inside of the album and all the pages you will get to fill....would be a great Christmas project as its definitely not a quick album to make

A wee sneaky of the inside cover and some of the little pockets that are available for you to cover and adhere you special photos to
I really am looking forward to this class and seeing what the Ladies use their little albums for as always they will all be so different but its going to be a lot of fun. Class is on the 15th in Dunedin and the 16th in Balclutha. Then there is only 2 more classes for the year and we wont be starting back until mid February  (Christmas is only 82 days away......just thought you might need a little reminder)
A quick couple of pics of my Daughter in Law Sherie, who is glowing (and growing) more everyday. I cant wait to meet and say Hello to the little bundle she is carrying ....I have nicknamed her Harriet...not sure why but it seemed to work better than Bump, or Baby or whatever
8 weeks to go and we finally get to put face to name and then I get to fill my album lol

there is only a few weeks difference between these photos so a very big difference
in that short period of time.
We have the baby shower this coming weekend so makes it all the more real and especially now we can feel her moving around a little bit and poking her booty out
Very exciting!
Ok that's it for now short and sweet
until next time
Take Care and
Happi Scrappin'
