My son Jack could always be found
sitting quietly reading a book. This was taken while we were building
our last home. The papers are from Story book. I love how Scrapbooking
brings back such wonderful memories!
Hi everyone. Today I have a beautiful card that is easy to create with a few nice techniques!
I have fallen in love with the new
DD757 Card Creations Die Lace Borders! They are versatile and
beautifully lacey. To make this card I simply cut my CD602 premium ivory
cardstock, (if you have not tried this, seriously consider it; the
colour and texture are beautiful!), to 8 1/2″ wide and 6 1/4″ tall. Die
cut each end, (it might need a few passes), folded it in half to form a
card and then folded the front back. I heat embossed the text stamp in
gold and continued with the gold theme with paper from the story book
collection. The paper bloom was sprayed with adhesive and then sprinkled
in gold micro glitter, (I was glittering all evening lol!). The circle
sentiment acts as a closure with the fold slipping behind it when
closed. I photographed my card agains a beautiful woodgrain paper so you
could see the detail of the die. The paper is also from the ‘Story Book
collection – P2065 Library Card.

It’s my sons birthday soon and I wanted
to make him a ‘special’ card – one that could incorporate photos and
that would be interactive. I chose the ‘Never Ending Card’ which I
re-sized . It is such a great card! You could put so many more photos on
it and turn it into a fun unconventional mini album. Think
Christmas…..family overseas, send them a Never Ending Card with lots of
your family pics!
Here is the front of the card…
This is the first turn….(isn’t he adorable!).
This is the second turn…..
and the third and final turn, the next turn takes you back to the beginning!
Such clever fun!
I hope you are inspired to make one, to help I have made a special u-tube video….just for you to make it real easy!

Oh my golly gumdrops….you have to see this sweet little bookshelf to fall in love with it!
I decided to make one for each of my
boys! We have no family in Australia, some live in the UK and Ireland,
some have passed. I decided to dedicate one little book for each family
member, going back as far as I can. This little shelf can fit quite a
few albums and I have really enjoyed compiling information on our
Other sweet ideas are to have a mini
album for each of the countries you have visited, how nice it would be
to do a bit of armchair traveling when you are feeling low; or an album
for each month of you babies life, I think the set would cover 2 years!
I love the wood effect paper in this collection ( P2065 Library Card), it is so rich and authentic!
The mini albums measure a sweet 3″ wide x
4″ tall. Each of my albums has a different saying like the above which I
cut from P2068 Bookplates.
Here are pics of the inside of one of the books.
