12x12 Photo Frame

For my Mum's 60th back in July, I arranged for a Family Portrait, as it was rare that us 4 kids were in the same place at the same time!

I had brought a few of these 12x12 Photo Frames from Lincraft for only $9.95, they come in either black or white.

The base of the layout is a 12x12 piece of Taken with Teal, I have double matted the 8x10 photo on Rose Red and then onto Regal Rose. Using the Eastern Blooms Stamp Set from the Summer Mini (Page 8, $39.95), I stamped the cherry blossom image in Whisper White Ink. The pink flowers are cut out from a sheet from the Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper, some are glued directly down and others a raised using Stampin' Dimensionals. I then finished the layout with a few rub-ons from the Cherished Memories set (Page 141, $19.95).
Anthony thought the layout looked a little too girly as he pointed out there is a male in the photo!

More Samples...

Base of this card is Whisper White, I have used the Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper and matted this onto Pumpkin Pie and Taken with Teal Cardstock. I have used the new Scallop Edge punch along the bottom of the Taken with Teal card, so that the Pumpkin Pie cardstock shows along the base. Again I have stamped the flower image in Stazon Ink and coloured this in with the Aqua painter and Pumpkin Pie Ink.

This card was cased from Andrea Walford, again base of this card is Whisper White Cardstock, I have used Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper, matted this onto Certainly Celery and Taken with Teal Cardstock, I have covered the join with Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon.

Christmas Market Day

Recently I was asked to be involved in a Christmas Market Day. This was run by Tina from the Natural Beauty Retreat (who organised the Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser a few months ago)

I had my display table set up with my Stampin' Up! products and then I ran 2 set classes for both Adults and Kids (2 classes for each with max of 6 in each). The day was a huge success and all who attended the classes loved the end product.

The first photo is of the cards in which the Adults made on the day-they made 4 Christmas Cards with matching envelopes (some designs were cased from different blogs, I apologise that I cannot remember which exact ones!)

The second photo is of the Kids Class-they all got to make a 9x9x9 Photo Cube, Mini Cards, Candy Cane tag, and Gift Tags.

And finally my display table on the day! (it looks messy underneath,but these were all the classes bagged and ready to be given to each guest)
