Birthday Card

Saw a youtube video of Rachelo113 on youtube for a halloween inspired slider card and got inspired. I had to make a card for a friend for her birthday and really wanted to get durty so just went for it.
I used the new Tim Holtz Holiday Stack *Thanks Louise I LOVE it! and stamped and gessoed it and of course stickles. Trying to make a card for a birthday this time of year is very hard not to make it festive themed but I'm sure it's horrible having a birthday so close to christmas! The lock is one I made with Anne out of clay from a Tim Holtz mould *Anne we have to get together and make aload more of them, I wont make them by myself!
Instead of stamping happy birthday I tore a page from the dictionary for B and gessoed around everything except birthday and put it on a ----yokie, cant remember the name of those little bits of plastic*mummy brain know what I'm on about!

Start of the homemade Christmas pressies

For my aunty...her dog came second in Krufts last year. You know when you make a present and you don't know how grungy to I went safe. It killed me cos I really wanted to get my hands dirty :)

Tag of Christmas

Ok so obviously I don't have enough time to play along with Tim's tags but had a go with Number 1 today. Not the same at all but it just inspired me :) I love how it turned out and it jingles, could it get any better!

If you don't have a smile I'll give you one of mine

This is a present for the nurses in SCBU, nothing I did tonight came out right. I had this in my head for ages but when I went to actually do it I couldn't....
I used a poem for premature mothers that makes me cry everytime I read it and I know it helped me so much when I read it the first time. I suppose there is only so many boxes of biscuits they can get as a present....

Even the darkest night will end

& the son will rise
Well that's it, my belly to birth album is full. Going to have to start making smaller albums or it will cost me a fortune!

Christmas card

So easy it's ridonkulous
Covered the card in dark paper, ripped a piece of card for the snow, added the gold padded embellishments (think I got them in Lidl last year)and added glossy accents for snow.
Ran out of cards then, so looks like I'll be buying the rest!

The Book Of Eli-chapter 1

Stupid iphone washed out the black and the quote on the tag that says Babies are a nice way to start life

You're my hero- in the first 5 weeks of your life you have shown more strength and determination than I have ever seen or could do myself. You inspire me during the bad days and make me look forward to the good.

I LOVE Tim Holtz's new Lost & Found paper stack, it inspires me so much and always seem to create what I want. The stamp is from Paper Trey Ink (thanks Emma!) and they are some of the cutest stamps for babies I have ever seen!

Time Flies

A card I made for a friends birthday, not a usual birthday card! I used Lost and Found paper stack (LOVE these papers so much I dont want to use them!) UTEE'd the bird cage and stamped and inked the bird behind it (cant really see it with the bad photo). Glossy accented a clock (yo can see  missed the edge of it!) and embossed the phase time flies. I like how it came out :)

Big Foot

One of the last scans (one of 26) Eli kicked the scanner and we got a great shot of his big feet! I took a photo last week of his foot pushing out the incubator door, so thought it would be a great scrap opportunity!
Sketch is a creative scrappers sketch, who else!
Sorry my photo editor is out of date so can't edit it!

Baby card

No not for us, been meaning to make it for a while and it was just one of those cards that pressure on me until it was done so in the end it turned into a chore *sigh, card making just isn't for me!

Sweet Dreamer

I'm back, I'm back wooooo
Journalling reads:
Wonder what you are dreaming about, all you know is incubators and needles- maybe dreaming about coming home with us
With such lovely photos I don't need to do much

Amy's reaction

Smile...I'm pregnant I say
A full conversation of OMG is it ok? is it ok?
I love how she went from pale and collected to purple and crying lol

Miss my embosser today, running out of techniques! I need a refresher course :)

Part deux of my duvet

I could use nothing toxic or a heat tool and pretty much just what I packed...things got strained near the end!

Daddy Practice

I love this photo of D and Fleurie, she clawed her way up on to him and plonked herself down for a nap and ever so slowly started to slide off as she was napping! I was going to do faux stitching and then I thought...what else do I have to be doing? :) Basic Grey paper, can be a bit busy but I think it works with big photos so they don't get lost in the patterns.

Hospital Scrapping

Well I've nothing better to do, do I!! I wonder will they give me another table? The doctors keep coming and plopping my file on top of all the bits and I have to do everything in my power to slap them across the head and scream "My god man, it's wet with glossy accents what's WRONG with you? Sheesh"

Flour bebe is actually a bag of flour weighed out to 690g what baby weighed last week and wrapped in a premmie baby grow. I showed a paed nurse this today and she thought it was so funny although said McDivapants wouldn't be as fat as the bag of flour!

All the better to see you with

I saw this photo and thought of that saying straight away! As usual I was short on letters and ended up having to make every letter in BETTER! I triple embossed a bit of cardboard and stamped SEE into it, when it was cooled I restamped see with embossing ink and brushed on some lovely green eyeshadow! It's handy to be able to use all the gank eyeshadow you wouldn't normally wear :)

Pregnancy journal

I HATE my bind it all and it hates me (really should read some instructions on how to use it!) but this a pregnancy journal for a friend, quite like how it came out :)

Pre Father's Day Card

I didn't know he expected one!! He only told me on the fly in passing so of course I had to make one, not the best but I like the sentiment of the card!
