Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer Card

Hi - thank you for coming to look at my card.  I have used a digi image and the lovely backing papers were free from a magazine!  I used pro-markers for the colouring in, and the glittered back panels are die-cut from Papermania glitter cardstock.  The snowflakes are cut from a Magnolia die - Happy Crafting!

Scrapbook Page of My DS Brandon & His Daddy (Scrapbook Magazine, Sarah Paris, Floral Sonata Paper Pack)

Hi all,
I was inspired by a project in a magazine to do this page as I have never used tags and elements this way before.  I used my own colours and swapped elements around a little, hearts instead of leaves because it is an indoor shot and not an outdoor one.  The papers came free with the same magazine and I have used co-ordinations lilac card stock for my background, plus added metal eyelets to the tags.
I love this photo, both boys were exhausted, one from crying, and the other from the one crying lol.  Thank you for looking x

Scrapbook Page Using Echo Park Happy Days Papers

Hi there :0)

 I took inspiration from Angel Crafts site's gallery for my page layout of my DS Brandon.  It is the same, but not if you know what I mean.  The papers, alpha stickers are Echo Park Happy Days Collection.  The black and white piece of paper is actually from my stash.  The chipboard shapes, (star and arrow have been coloured in red with Poppy promarker).  The ribbon and brads are from one of Angel Crafts embellishment kits, which I absolutely adore.  At the moment, I do have to take inspiration from designs from craft sites and magazines, just until I can get into the swing of creating my own.  I have made this page my own though, I think.  I love this picture of my DS, he does look incredibly happy 'livin in a box'  lol.
