Lasting Memories


Lasting Memories has an Irish themed montage to inspire us.
We saw many of the items in the photo, but this particular ride came to mind straight away.



I've used a bella paper, inked the frame white and embossed the tree after inking it green. I've added colours to match the photos.
The tag on top left was Kraft that has been misted with red and the journalling strips are flocked.
A very tactile layout!

This was the year my daughter and I went to Europe.
We went on a ride on this jaunting cart through a forest in Killarney.
It was so much fun.

ABC Christmas challenge.

ABC Christmas challenge has an E F or G challenge and G was glitz.

I had a paper featuring a Christmas tree so added rhinestones to look like ornaments all over the tree.
My sentiment is small and neat so as not to overshadow the tree.
The photo looks like the rhinestones are blue but they're a jade green.


Colour Throwdown and others.


https://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/ has this colour palette.

I've made an Easter card using gingham washi tape and some cute puffy stickers that were in my Counterfeit Kit.
I matted my sentiment using matching gingham paper.


********************************************

My next card is for Simon says stamp. The theme is "cute"

I had a mini envelope in my Counterfeit kit so I stamped Snugglepot and cuddlepie on the front and added a fabric butterfly. My sentiment is for a get well card.
My great niece recently had surgery on her ear, so I will send this to her.
I will tuck a tiny surprise in the envelope.
                                             *****************************************

My next card is for Li'l red wagon where they want galaxy or space cards.
I paper cut a rocket from bright coloured paper featuring dots.I centred them to look like windows. I added a black enamel dot as the top one.
The fins of the rocket are washi tape.
As it is a card for a 4 year old, I kept the colours bright.


2 challenges in one

Paper crew has a sketch challenge PCC330


and Double D has a gingham challenge.

I'm combining the two with this card.

shopping our stash

Shopping our stash is celebrating friendship.
I'm still using up items from my kit and on this one I used a 6x6 paper, a tag I made which features a spray of flowers and 2 tiny bird stickers.
There is also a watering can button plus my sentiment.
One of my friends has a wonderful garden, so she will receive it next month for her birthday.


My next card is for a new site Stamps &fun =creativity.

Their theme is butterflies. I stamped this with 2 different butterfly stamps and embossed the black one. My sentiment is to uplift someone who is down or unhappy.
We can always find something to be grateful for.


Try stamping on Tuesday

I'm using up scraps from my counterfeit kit now. The card below is for Try stamping on Tuesday.



I've used up 3 paper scraps from my kit and the background was another small piece. I've also used bright green washi tape to finish it off.
My stamp is a bakers stamp with a handle that I bought ages ago.

This of course is for Mother's Day.


Next is a brightly coloured paper that wasn't suitable for scrapbooking.
I saw this card design on Tuesday Morning sketches and decided it would work on that.


Here's my card.
I've also used some glitter stickers that were left in my kit.

D-Lish scrap fabric challenge


This challenge appealed to me because of the photo I wanted to scrap.
It was taken at Patonga where Mum and Dad met and consequently used to go for weekends and holidays. 
I used hessian which actually comes from Dad plus a crochet trim from Mum's sewing stash.
There is also a vintage button from Mum.

The D-lish items are red and white spotted doileys, hessian flower and enamel dots.
The red and white chevron bag might be too. I've forgotten where that came from.


If you are wondering why I put thank you at the bottom of the page it is me saying thank you to my parents for keeping these photos and preserving the memories.
