Dawn's colour challenge week 2

Well I was so bummed last week when I missed the cut-off for Dawn's first colour challenge. So here I am again trying to meet the deadline!

So here is my card using Papertrey Ink's stamp set Pond Life and their Spring Moss and Stampers Select white cardstock. I used SU's Tempting Turquoise cardstock and ink and their Chocolate Chip ink. The patterned paper is Su's too. Petals and Paisley I think. I kept it pretty simple as I am sending this to my brother-in-law for his birthday.

First color challenge

I thought I would enter Dawns first color challenge. I used SU's chocolate chip, pink passion and whisper white cardstock and Papertrey Ink's lemon tart and summer sunrise cardstock. I used Papertrey's green thumb stamp set and lemon tart twill tape, some SU linen thread and Recolllections chocolate brads.

Sorry about the picture, the sun decided to stay behind the clouds today :(

Papertrey contest......

Wow! It has been a long time :o( I think I start all my posts this way! Tonight I'm adding a picture of a little bag I made at a SU demo meeting a long time ago. I had never finished it and decided to do so tonight so I could enter Nichole Heady's contest on her blog. All supplies are Stampin'Up!

August stamp camp layouts

Believe it or not it's me again! Thought I'd show you the layouts for my August stamp camp. All product used is Stampin'Up! Saw a 6x6 layout using the torn paper for the sand and sea and Pick a Petal stamp set for the surf boards and thought I would adapt it to a two page 12x12 spread. These are photos of my girls on Dollymount beach in Dublin, Ireland, looking for shells. They had a great time. I took lots of pictures and plan on putting together a minibook of our trip to Ireland.
This is the second layout. It's titled 'Good Times'. I plan to add the words 'Let the' before 'Good Times' and then 'Roll' after it but thought it would work better this way, more flexible. This is the first time I cropped photos into a circle. I like the look and think it goes with the theme. I used the corner rounder with the guard removed to make the scalloped border. I can't wait to get my hands on SU's new scallop border punch. I placed an order from the new catalog but it still hasn't even been picked yet!!! I'll be holding a new catalog Open House early September and will have lots of new products to show and hopefully tons of samples too if my order gets here in time so I can get busy creating!!!
Well I must scoot as the girls have a friend coming over in 45 mins and they're not dressed yet and the playroom is a mess. Take care friends :o)

Long, long time no post :o(

Wow, I really do need to figure this blog thing out. Sorry to anyone who may have stopped by in the last three months and not found any new posts. I am hoping once the girls start Kindergarten this September that I might be able to get my act together and become a better blogger (I can't get any worse now can I!!!)

Today I'd like to show you last month's pages for my scrapbook stamp camp that I hold in my home once a month.

The 'Rock Stars' layout could also be used for 'Fourth of July'. I used my little Epson PictureMate printer to print my pics. I love that little printer :o)

Here's the 'Thank You' cards I made for Ciara and Tara's (my twin daughters) 5th birthday, using PapertreyInk stamps and SU cardstock, paper and ink and also the scallop punch.

I can't seem to get rid of this last sideways picture. If anyone knows how to do this can you let me know. Have a great day :o)

More NSD challenges

Here are my altered embellishment pages. On the 'So very proud' page I added Stickles to the flower. Same thing on the 'Playground fun' page and last, I added paper to clear buttons and then layered them with smaller buttons and then a heart shaped brad on the 'Sweetest thing' layout.
