Lovely layers

Had so much fun making this card today, really starting to get the hang of layering on my cards. It adds depth and prettiness and I'm loving Stampin Up's vintage style embossing folders as well. I am hoping to get a few more cards made over Easter and tomorrow we are visiting the twins who came home today :-)

I am finally an Aunty to twins, Jack & Davyn!

Have been a bit slack on my blog recently. I made baby cards a few weekends ago but couldn't post them on here until my nephews were born. Monday afternoon they arrived, almost 36 weeks and weighing approximately 2kgs each. They are so adorable and I wanted to make really special baby cards for them. The latest news is that they may be coming home today! I will have to see if my brother will let me post a photo of them here on my blog so you can all see how cute they are.

Seagull Card

This is the card I made my partner for our 5 year anniversary. We both love going o our Caravan at Phillip Island when we can and his hobby is photography. I saw a similar card on Pinterest and Dave actually took a photo very similar to this about a year ago. He loved the card because it represents the things we both love doing the most, card making (of course) photography and our favourite place, Phillip Island.

Butterfly Card

I created this card a few weeks ago while I was playing around with the new bitty butterfly punch, More Amore paper & Vintage Verses stamp set (SAB 2013). I also used SAB Pool Party Ribbon. I love the gorgeous colours in the More Amore paper, Stampin Up certainly take the hard work out of being creative and choosing colours that look stunning together! I am also loving the dimension you can get simply using the bone folder to 'curl' the paper on the butterflies.

My Brother's Engagement

Last night my brother had his engagement party at Mum's. It was a great night with lots of talking and music and catching up with family who we don't see very often. I wanted to make David & Ginny a special card as they are also expecting twins in April. I received free silver glimmer paper last month from Stampin Up so I knew I had to use that, it is so pretty & sparkly, even more in real life than in the photo. So I ended up with 2 big hearts and 2 baby ones, one happy family! I also made some decorations for their cake with stamps & shrink plastic.
