My Friend, My Sister


I really love these beautiful photos of my gorgeous nieces.  I used the Flirtatious Specialty DSP, the Tasteful Trim Big Shot die, Timeless Type die, Creative Element stamp set.  This is another easy peasy 15 min LO – fast and fun.





This is one of the easiest and fastest LO I have done lately.  15 minute page, done in a flash.  The interesting thing is I have done a summery page – with a male subject using the girly Flirtatious Specialty DSP – but the reverse side.   The Color Spritzer Tool adds the fun splatter to the background.  I have embossed the Big Shot Simple Letters Alphabet with the Square Lattice embossing folder, isolated a swimmer from the Sunny Fun stamp set and colored him in – this make a cute embellishment and popped on a button.  Easy Peasy.



I love this LO of my beautiful niece Felicity.  She is growing up so fast.  The DSP Berry Blossoms has lovely vibrant colors which complement this photo.  I stamped with the Creative Element stamp set in White Craft Ink on the Wisteria Wonder card stock for the background.  The Broadsheet Alphabet fits perfectly in the new stamp punch.  Once again I don’t think the photograph does justice to the true life colors.

Missing You Already


This LO was inspired by a magazine cut out.  The photo is of my son Ethan – it was taken just before he left to go to Waikato for University. The LO is kind of fussy for me – but I really enjoyed scruffying it up abit.  Crumb Cake is definitely my go to for a background and it works well with the linen thread here.

Whip It!


This LO is of my son Dwight – I love the picture as it has caught the whip of his hair so well.  I used the DSP Frightful Sight – the colors in this pack are great for masculine LOs.  The Circle Scissor makes it easy to cut the round elements, and Circle Circus stamp set adds some pattern to the white circle frame.  I don’t think the photo does this LO justice as the colors are quite stunning in Real Life.
