Scrapbook Page

Well I am really on a roll this week & loving every minute of it :-) Today I was deciding what to do when I came across this fortnight's sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge & it just shouted Scrapbook Page at me!! Well, I have only ever made one scrapbook page before so I thought it was time I gave it a shot again :-)

The page is one I downloaded at the weekend & used on my ATC. I  put it in to PSP & resized. I then followed the sketch over at FSC & this is how it turned out. Here is a little close up.

 The 2 photos I used were originally colour, so I scanned them in to Paint Shop Pro, pressed a little button & let it do it's magic. I will hopefully see you again before next week, but I have a busy few days ahead.x Clare x

And now for something completely different............

Well as I said the other day I am experimenting a bit with my cards at the moment. Today we have gone CAS. I even got my little printer to print exactly where I wanted it to for a change :-)
I sat looking at the sketch over at TMS & I had a flash of inspiration! Doesn't happen that often I can assure you. I printed the Merry Christmas using Lucida Calligraphy Font. The bow is made from a scarf that I picked up in a pound shop. The decoration is one I have had sat around for a couple of years & refused to throw out x Clare x

Owl Love You!

Good Morning! Well I was hoping to have this card up on my blog yesterday but I had a sentiment issue. I didn't know what I wanted but knew I would know as soon as I found it!! Well I did find it but it took me 5 hours!! So it was nearly 10pm before I finished it. I think it was worth the effort though :-)

I used the sketch at Sketch N Stash as my inspiration & decided to go for a chocolate brown colour theme. I added this gorgeous Glittered Acetate from Kanban.

Here is a close up of the adorable Owl topper.

I took the layout through to the inside of the card & added the sentiment. 

 Then I created a space for the sender to write a message x Clare x
