Happy 1st Birthday Zali

This is a birthday card I made for Anthony's niece Zali who turned 1 earlier this month.
The set I used is a non Stampin' Up! set from Verve Stamps, this set is called Cupcake Affair. I love the designs of these stamps and they also have a great blog that you can get fantastic ideas from heaps of talented ladies

Note Books

I got the idea and instructions for these note books from Kirsten Werner's blog (
They were quick and easy to make!!

New Blog Name

Hi all just letting you know that I have changed my Blog name from My Scrapbook Library to Creations in Paper. I thought Creations in Paper was a more appropriate name for the type of work that is displayed on my Blog.
My blog address of will remain the same at this point in time, (as I have just got new business cards with this printed on it, so I will have to wait for them to run out) but in the future I will change this also.
Have a great day..

Paper Angel...

For Christmas from my Upline Liz, I received this beautiful handmade gift.
The name of our Stampin' Up! group is called Paper Angels. (re the shape of the journal-Angel Wings)
I believe she made about 25 of these, all the same shape but different colours.
Liz is so talented, I wonder were she finds the time to fit everything in (she also has 4 kids).
So Thank you Liz for making this a wonderful group to be apart of!


For Christmas Presents for my downlines, I decorated a 2009 Diary for each of them.
They were fairly simple, I decorated the front covers, using Stampin' Up! Rub-ons and then punched a Scallop Circle Punch (P142 $30.95) to hide the original logo (sorry, the photo's have too much shine on them) .
Then on the inside page, I covered the existing front page with Cardstock, punching the left hand side using the Spiral Punch (P142 $20.95).
Using the initial of their first name, I covered On Board Simon Chipboard Lower Letters (P140 $20.95) with Crystal Effects (P148 $11.95) and then I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds (P148 $8.50) over the top and set these aside overnight to dry.
With the letter "H", once the glitter had dried, I then stamped the swirl from the "Priceless" stamp set (P105 $48.95) in Purely Pomegranate, you can sort of see this on the "H" if you look closely!!

Sale-A-Bration Samples

Card 1:
I used Tempting Turquoise for the base of the card, using Whisper White I ran this through my Cuttlebug, with my Spellbinders Nestabilites (which I have had for a while now but never seem to find the time to get it all out and use them).
I stamped the small flower image from the Eastern Blooms Stamp set (from current Summer Mini Page 8 $39.95) twice in Old Olive and once in Tempting Turquoise, then I added a little bling in the centre of each flower. I then stamped the Congratulations (Congrats set from the Sale-A-Bration) in basic black.
Card 2:
You will see with this card I CASED the basic design and style from the sample that is on the front on the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
I used Apricot Appeal as the base, matted the Whisper White cardstock onto a piece of Lovely Lilac. Using "Polka Dot Punched" stamp set (P4) from Sale-A-Bration, I stamped all the images randomly onto the Whisper White card using Apricot Appeal, Lovely Lilac, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral. Using my Colour Coach, I looked up Apricot Appeal, and then I just used all the Coordinating and Complementary Colours.
I have also used the "Say It With Scallops" stamp set(Page 16 $31.95) and Scallop Punch (Page 17 $30.95) from the Summer Mini Catalogue, and I stamped this in Purely Pomegranate.
I punch 2 of the images from the "Polka Dot Punches" set with the Scallop Circle Punch (Page 142 $30.95)
I used Light Orchid Ribbon (which was from last years Catalogue)
Card 3:
This is one of my favourite cards! Simple and plain!
The base of the card is Whisper White, I punched 3 squares out of Elegant Eggplant cardstock using the 1 3/8" Square Punch (P142)
I stamped the flower images from the "Botanical Bloom" stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration (Page 2) onto Whisper White using Elegant Eggplant ink, (this is a 2 Step Stampin' Set) then I punched out all 3 flower images using the 1 1/4" Square Punch (P142).
When I attached the white squares, I slightly turned them so that there was quite a bit of Elegant Eggplant showing.
I stamped Congratulations from "Congrats"stamp set from Sale-A-Bration (P6) in Elegant Eggplant ink.
