EMBELLISHMENT THURSDAY - CREATE YOUR OWN COLOURED PEARLS

I am three days late with my post due to having a new foster kitten in the house. He is adorable and has settled in very well. I will put a photo of him at the end of this post. This video shows you how to colour your white pearls with alcohol ink markers to make them any colour you need for your cards or your scrapbooking pages. It is a great idea. Hope you enjoy this video.

THURSDAY - EMBELLISHMENT IDEAS

Here are a few ideas for embellishments to add to your scrapbooking pages.



These embellishments would enhance your pages with a splash of colour. I decided to add an Easter Embellishment as easter is nearly here and you may like to include the egg basket in one of your easter scrapbooking pages.

Wishing you all a very happy and safe easter.

OWL CARDS

Aawwww how cute are these cards. 




These cards were made with the Stampin Up Sizzix Die " Top Note " (I think this die can only be bought from a Stampin Up Consultant), Circle Punches, Scallop Punch, Heart Punches. They are so simple to make and they look so cute. I cut out all my pieces first and then assembled the card.

TECHNIQUE WEDNESDAY - WORRY FREE MISTING




Yesterday I watched this video and found it very helpful. I have had a few mishaps with misting on a background I was doing for a LO and had to throw it away. This video gives great ideas on how to mist without making a mess of your background. I am just waiting for my Scraps of Elegance Kit to arrive and I am going to practice some ideas from the video. I hope you take the time to watch and learn how to make misting enjoyable.

CARD IN A BOX


Ummmm my first card in a box. I think I need a little (lot) of practice. Will make another one and see if I can do a better job of it. They aren't all that hard to make, but I need to do a better arrangement on the card, on this card I did butterflies. I think I will try flowers on the next one. Have a go at making one as they are lots of fun to do. You can see step by step instructions on You Tube. Thank you Angela!!!!!
