Hi all, hope you are having a pleasant Saturday. I have been at my scrapbooking crop today and have had a thoroughly lovely time. I went without any plan whatsoever, but did manage to complete a layout (in between chatting, drinking coffee and eating cake!). Emily's scrapbook is coming on slowly, but I am confident it will be finished on time. I'm planning to get so much done at my retreat at the end of August.
As promised, here is the card I made for my sister's wedding anniversary. I am particularly pleased with this one.
I stamped the text image from the Charming set by SU in Blushing Bride, then stamped the flower (also from Charming) over the top in Concord Crush. I stuck it to a rectangle of Blushing Bride textured cardstock that I had already torn to size. This card stock looks great torn, I really like the texture. I then made a ribbon effect from Concord Crush pattered DSP and stuck it to the card. I added the stamped element using 3D foam pads. I finished it off with a sentiment from Paula Pascual's All Year Round set, mounted on Blushing Bride.
I really like the subtlety of the Charming set and I am enjoying using my Stampin' Up products. I joined a Stampers 6 club back in January run by Vicky Hayes (check it out here ) and I thoroughly recommend it. Vicky is so inspirational, and really supportive, and she always pops a little something extra in your parcel. My final month is June and I will be the hostess - I can't wait!
Well, that's me done for now. As always, I really appreciate your kind comments.
