Final card share for March ...

I am just lovin these scallops!!! can't get enough of them! Here I have used the negative.
 (my apologies the colours are not too hot on this one - the paper is a chocolate brown colour!)
They are so versatile ... even for a boys card again using the negative of the die!
and for a 12 year old Adelaide fan I used a ZIP punch!
I do have a couple more to share but I didn't get photos taken so they will have to wait till next time!
Almost forgot check out the new Pink Paislee just arrived at my2angels .. gorgeous!!
TFL .... catch you next month! Y

Life savers ...

A day late but as promised my latest layout using Echo Park ‘For the Record’ ... 
These photos are my son and his friend on a ‘school’ swimming lesson, learning life saving at the beach ... nice way to spend a morning eh?!?!
Again using the black and white patterns I’ve  started with some White and Black cardstock as a background and added pieces of ‘Newsprint’ and ‘Advertisement’. I then added my 3 (yes 3!!) photos and machine stitched them to the page. 

Like my neat stitching!!!! 

Of course I just had to put a photo of the famous Indiana’s Tea House clock on my LO!!
The alphas and the word stickers, again, are from the FABULOUS Alpha Cardstock stickers so is the spiral border sticker I have used. The photo corners and date sticker are from the Element Stickers sheet  and the black phrases are from the Noteworthy sheet. 

Don't forget to check out all the new stock being uploaded daily at My2Angels.

Thanks for looking, appreciate you stopping by Y

Catch Up ...

Happy weekend! I am a little behind with my DT blogging this week .... had a few things on which have eaten into 'my' time so here are some cards for My2Angels using the gorgeous EP For the Record papers!

First  ...
Using white cardstock, I cut my card out of my favourite card die! but this shape could be traced using scalloped paper or cardstock. Or you could just as easily use a normal shaped card.
Choose your papers - the Echo Park For the Record range of papers have some great papers that have four 6x6 patterns on one side and a full pattern on the other ... the 6x6 patterns are excellent for cards as the size of the patterns are slightly smaller. I love using 6x6 papers when I am card making and Tracy has a gorgeous Webster’s Pages Spring Market Yacht Club & Country Estate 6x6 pad in the store, which you really should check out, awesome value for 36 double sided papers. 

Oops I got a bit sidetracked there ... Back to the card LOL – I’ve used ‘Picket Fence’ and  ‘Vintage Linen’ for my red and black papers and a border from the ‘Borders’ sheet.  Then using good old eyelets (we all still have some of those!! Right?!?) and some Charcoal Bakers Twine I made 3 pennant/flag shapes! In the middle of each pennant, I used some letters from the ‘Alpha Cardstock Stickers’ to spell out, YOU. I finished by using some more of the alphas to make JUST FOR (love this red alpha) and ‘hand stitched’ around it in black pen! and Voila! First card is finished!

next ...
more white cardstock but this time with the green pattern on the ‘Vintage Linen’ paper and a strip of  the ‘Newsprint’ paper across the middle of the card. 
The loopy border is from the ‘Alpha Cardstock Stickers’ and so is the ‘Celebrate’ sticker , which I have mounted on board and covered with Dimensional Magic to make it super glossy.
The circle is a cardstock circle, which I have covered in Charcoal Bakers Twine and mounted onto another die cut fancy circle. I have to say these Bakers Twines are seriously cool ... 
I LOVE them!! 

and, AND you must check out the new Bo Bunny papers which My2Angels have just got in stock ... I am SO choosing some Ad Lib for my next projects!!! Check this die cut out ... very yummy!!!!

I also have a layout to share but will try and post that over the weekend ... 
so till then TFL and for all your lovely comments Y

Quick ...

At last!! I finally got a LO done for The Colour Room .... but unfortunately I was a day late loading it up to their site (waiting for some decent light to take photos!) so the palette for #50 has already been released DOH!!!
Never mind, still going to share it here ... really love this photo! Regulars will see this is the same 'photo shoot' as my last post but I converted this one to black and white and he is smiling in this one whereas the last one he was looking a bit on the serious side!!

I've used Pink Paislee papers and MLBOW buttons and bird pin and a very neat My2Angels Family Pin .... check out all the new pins HERE! While you are over there check out all the
Tracy has recently got in .... its well worth a look as there is some fantastic stuff coming in all the time! Including Scrapware, tons of Prima Papers, Webster Papers, Bakers Twine & Charms (love the cute telephones and love letters)

Really loved this palette

The title also uses some Echo Park 'For the Record' available HERE

Close ups of the buttons and pins!

Oh ... and did anyone see my FIRST LO in Scrapbooking Memories this month?!?!?!?!? 
If you didn't .... its Page 134 (Final Encore) just in case you wanted to take a look LOL!?!?!?!?!? 
As always THANKS so much for looking and all the AWESOME comments ... love 'em Y

For the Record ...

I was lucky this month as Tracy at my2angels sent me the new Echo Park Collection ‘For the Record’ to play with! I love it!
So seeing as there are some pretty cool black and white papers in this range I used some of them for this LO of my son, you all know how much I love black and white!!!
The papers I’ve used are Stamp of Approval for the background and both sides of Newsprint. I tore the large piece of Newsprint I have torn it and stitched it back together again with black thread.  The ruler is from the Borders paper and my journaling block (still have that to complete) is Noteworthy.  I’ve distressed and inked most of my paper edges just a little. The ‘For the Record’ is from the Element stickers which I stuck onto black cardstock , cut out again and then 3D’s and positioned it at the bottom of my journaling block.
Now I have to say the Alpha Cardstock Stickers in this range are FANTASTIC!! Absolutely love them, they are such good value, there are lots of stickers and FOUR great fonts! I love mixing my title fonts so they were perfect for me! I’ve used the scrabble ones for LOVE and the red and beige ones for ADORE and ALWAYS . The TUESDAY and YOU are words from the sticker sheet. I have mounted all the stickers I have used on some black board to raise them off the page! The bracket I’ve used is from my fav AC Foam Thickers ‘Daiquiri’ Alphas!
 TFL and for all your lovely comments .... I really love reading them Ythanks 
Anyway I’m off to play some more with these papers!! .... mmmm cards next I think ...

Stella & Rose ....

Howdy .... a set of cards to share today, one with PP Bayberry papers (still love these ... a lot!!) and two with some MME Stella & Rose ... which is just gorgeous! 

.. this was a birthday card for the lovely Tracey last week!

.. a just because ..

.. and a thank you for a special deed!

These cards were inspired by a card posted by the lovely Leah, a while back, using this Lifestyle die ... she is one of my absolute favourite bloggers, love the way she faux stitches on her cards, I used to do that quite often but haven't done it in a while and I'd forgotten how good it looks! Looks especially good on the scallops of these cards!

I'll be back in a couple of days to share a Design Team LO made with the equally lovely Echo Park Off the Record ... here is a sneaky! 

Pop on over to My2Angels and check out all the new arrivals ... especially the new colours of Bakers Twine
.. personally I'm hanging out for the Pink Paislee Hometown Summer to arrive ... 

As always thanks for popping by .....  oh and please watch out for my first published layout tomorrow (YAY!!) in Scrapbooking Memories :) .... I can't wait to grab my copy at lunchtime!!
