For my project this week I have made a little easy make card.
Now we all know diamonds are a girls best friend so I wanted to make a card with plenty of bling!
I made the card by layering 2 pieces of pink card stock onto a card blank, this can be done in any sizes. Its a great way of using up any old scraps you might have laying around.
I then stuck a diamond flower to another piece of card and cut it out. This was then stuck onto the card. By sticking it on separately I could then shape the flower and slightly bend the petals.
Right now for the fun part.... The stamping
I used the 'With Love' stamps from the SCRIBBLE SENTIMENTS CLEAR STAMPS and stamped this around the edge of the card. This can be done with any stamp to change the theme of the card. I used a pink StazOn to match my cardstock.
I hope you like my card, it can be adapted to any occasion including christmas, you just have to change the bling flower to something Christmassy!!
See you again soon

So nothing christmassy from me yet, but I do have a birthday card to share. I always find it harder to design and make cards for males - female cards seem to flow much easier for some reason. So when it was time to make a card for my Dad, I thought I would use my sugar and spice stamps for inspiration and reached for the 'In a word set'.

Now for all those people who know me will know that when the tough gets going, the tough goes on a list in a note book! I couldn't live without one. So I had to make this............
Now making your own note book might seem a bit long winded especially as you can go and buy one but this way you can be in control of how big it is, how many pages you put in it and the most importantly, what it looks like! The Bind it all is perfect for making note books but if you don't have one then book rings or ribbons would do the job just as well and I felt the stitching gave it a homely rustic feel.
The good ole Sugar and Spice Alphabet stamps come up trumps again for giving a neat and tidy look when stamping on my tabs and who could resist scribble word but with a Christmas touch? Fabby!!
So now I have shared it with you I can get writing my lists, my wish lists that is ;)

For my lid cover I used a christmas sentiment stamp and a snowflake stamp from designs created by Marion Emberson at sugar and spice.
And finally a tag finishes off the gift bag, I stamped this Ho Ho Ho with a glue pad and then covered with gold glamour dust.
Bye for now and happy crafting for christmas P x

I used a small flower stamp from the SCRIBBLE SENTIMENTS CLEAR STAMPS to create a little flower border which I added a little bling to.
I also used the FAT & FUNKY ALPHA STAMPS to create a small title.
I added bling and felt flowers to represent the glitz of the party.
Happy Birthday Sarah x x

So, before the Christmas season grips us fully, if it hasn't already in your house, I thought I'd do a layout that didn't include red, green or sparkles. This picture is of my Aunt Edith, and her son and daughter and grandchildren, my 'extended' immediate family.
I let the paper lead the way on this one, using the blue writing on the pattern to give an accent colour. I stamped an L shaped border on vellum using the Scribble Flowers stamps without the words, and used the same set for the handmade embellishment. Making your own embellishments like this really makes a layout unique and very personal to you, it also allows you to make things exactly in the colours, sizes and textures you want. And in this current financial climate it makes good money sense too. Stamps are an excellent investment for scrapbooking as they are so versatile and can be used again and again.
The flower was made from a punched out daisy base, with a long strip of paper pleated, I then stuck the two short ends together to form a circle and glued it to a scrap of card to make a good strong base. The stamped flower was then layered on top with another flower from my stash and a coordinating brad.
If you're about to start making your own Christmas Cards, Marion now has the Scribble Christmas range in the shop.

One of my favourite Sunday pastimes is to take myself off for a woodland walk and two of my favourite seasons to do so are Spring and Autumn. I wanted to create a LO with contrasting scenes from my walks and used stamps from the Alpha set to help me create the look I wanted.
I started by using the small swirl stamp from the Alpha set to stamp a continuous border onto yellow cardstock. I used two different colours - toffee and green moss versafine inks, overlapping the two. I then placed my border on my page to create a link between the two photographs.

Some buttons were stamped on patterned paper, some on plain cardstock. Some I covered with Glossy Accent and some I edged with Glamour Dust. Some I tied with thin red ribbon and some I pinned onto the wreath with pearl topped pins.
