I'm in the process of making a mini album of photos from my 40th Birthday party earlier this year. It was a great night, and fortunately a friend took lots of photos for me as I was a bit preoccupied. As it was a house party the house shaped mini album seemed perfect, one of those purchases you make in the sure and certain knowledge that SOMEDAY it'll come in handy. Kaisercraft do a similar one and lots of other chipboard alterable albums - all of which I covet.

Remember you can always transform your paper flowers by stamping onto them or changing the colour with inks or some fab glitter paints.
Bye for now and happy crafting P x

Today's project is a card for a friend recovering post surgery, using the traditional theme of flowers.
I've had these little terracota vases for ages and not gotten round to using them as I thought they might look a bit old fashioned, but combined with the modern lines of the "In a Word" stamp I think it's brought it up to date. The flowers were punched from swiss dot bazzil cardstock which I also used to mat the stamp and coordinating velum using two sizes of punch. I drew the stems on using a Sakura gellyroll pen and added a little bling to the flower detail on the stamp. Finishing off with a piece of ribbon I had left over that was just the right size - don't you love it when that happens?
Happy stamping :)

For this cute little tag I used the Sugar and Spice 'Happy Birthday with a Cherry on top' stamp with the wonderful Versafine ink and the coloured the number 40 in with a pink marker. Scalloping the edge with my boarder punch led me to bling up the scallops - lovely!
