more pages to share

Hi there folks Bridge here
I have just come for a visit as well as show off my latest two pages which i have made for vicki, this first one is made up using a variety of patterned paper from the shop such as cosmo cricket and sassafras two of my favourite brands, the flourish is called flourish with a bling and the flowers are sassafras, i have used dimension tape to make them stand out. lettering is kaiser, and small letters are October Afternoon

I really love these photos of my daughter Mollie she was laughing so much while i was taking her photo which i love but unfortunately the top one was blury and i chopped off her head oopps probably because i was laughing at her laughing ! so any way who says we need to scrap the most perfect photos every time, I believe scrapping is capturing the everyday moments that are real and (not always so perfect)
so go ahead scrap those dodgy pictures you have stored in your boxes or albums i bet you cant throw them away can you ?? so why not scrap them!!

Cheeky Monkeys
If you are into bold bright and happy pages then these papers would be perfect for you they would be perfect with a set of zoo photos but in my case i had scrapped all of our zoo photos but had come across this gorgeous photo of my daughter Amelia and her cousin Cody and i thought yah this will work well.

unfortunately i can not tell you the brand of papers they are, as they came in a pack and the brand is not on the back like usual but i am sure vicki will know what brand they are if you were interested in them
She also has matching stickers to embellish your page, how cute is that giraffe, I have matted him with black card to make him stand out a little , the large letters are sassafras and the foam letters are thickers from American Craft, the large chipboard is 2 crafty i have covered my chipboard in gesso to give it some texture then painted it with bright green paint !
thanks for stopping by
i will be back soon with more boy pages i had to borrow a few photos from my sister in law for this next page !!

Life's Journey' Toilet Roll Mini Album

Hi Scrappers,

I'm on a roll! Here is another DT challenge Vicki gave me. It's hard to believe this adorably cute album is made with toilet rolls, yes I did just say toilet rolls. The flatten rolls make perfect slots for tags within the album.

Products I used to make this are:
- Copper metallic paint
- Thickers
- S.E.I 'Moravia' paper range
- Flourish with a bling
- Ribbon
- Cuttlebug texture plates
- Vintage Photo distress ink
- Album ring

This is a easy, but effective project anyone can accomplish. It would also be a fun one to do with your kids.

Flowers by Flutterby Designs

Hey Ladies, these are my flowers I have been busily making. They went really well at the scrap retreat at Lake Keepit, so I will have more ready for the shop soon. So get into Angels R Scrappin shortly & I should have a great selection to choose from. Hope you like them. Neet xox

'A Day Without Laughter'

This is my best mate Amee & her little man Coopa. I miss her like crazy & love catching up & spending time with them whenever I can. This is such a fun page. I used the Crate Paper range, which is a quirky-fun retro paper. I love it, it has all my favourite colours in one range!
Other goodies used:
- Petaloo Flowers
- Kaiser droplet stickers
- Kaiser flower bling & rhinestones
- Brown Ink
- Cardstock.
These papers are in store now - I bet you'll have as much fun as I did with these. Neet xox

'Memories Like This'

Hey scrappers! This is Chris & I on our wedding day - I can't believe it's been over two years already! Time flies! Products I used for this page are:
- Graphic 45 'Le Romantique' papers
- Kaiser flowers & bling
- Lace
- Sizzix leaf die
- Rub ons
- and my favourite thing at the moment, old book pages!
Vicki now has Graphic 45 papers in store! I love the shabby chic look at the moment. Neet xox

'Our Engagement'

Well, as the other ladies on the DT have been quite busy, me on ther hand have been a bit slack in uploading stuff, so here it goes...

This was a DT pack Vicki gave to me, using WOW album, 'Our Engagement'. Chris & I didn't have an engagement party, so these are the photos my little sisters engagement shoot. Her big day is getting really close - only 7 weeks!
The papers are from the Creative Imaginations Christine Aldoph - 'Felicity' range. I found these a bit more challenging than normal, as they a bit prissy & girl (& for those of you that know me - I am quite the opposite). But all in all it turned out really cool!
Other treasures I used were:
- Kaiser Flowers & bling
- 'Felicity' Chipboard sheet & Stickers
- Flutterby sticker decals
- Old book pages
And there's probably other stuff - but my minds gone blank. Vicki has all these products at the shop, so get in quick before there all gone. Neet xox
