Father's Day Card 3

Hi Bloggers,
I have my third and final Father’s Day card to share with you this year.
This one is very fitting for my own father as he teachers Line Dancing!
The mat for this card is cut using my Cricut and the Old West cartridge. It’s the “wanted” poster and is such a useful shape.
I used the Holiday Cakes cartridge for the phrase (and shadow) and cut it at 2 ¼“.
I used brads as “studs” on the boot, adding further detail with a black pen.
I hope you like my design.
Thanks for stopping by,
Pam xx

Father's Day Card 2

Hi Bloggers,
I have another Father’s Day card to share with you today.
The mats were cut with my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge. I cut three different sizes and embossed the smallest using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. This is one of my favourite and most used embossing folders as it is easy to match up when embossing bigger areas.
The car is from the Wrap It Up cartridge and the panel on the side could easily be personalised (I’m thinking stamps).
The text is from the Holiday Cakes cartridge and cut at 2 ¼“.
I have one more Father’s day card to share with you tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by,
Pam xx

Father's Day Card 1

Hi Bloggers,

Father’s Day is just around the corner so I thought I’d post a few cards I made.
The first one incorporates a father and son photo.
I cut the background mat using my Cricut machine and the Elegant Edges cartridge. Then I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder to create the embossed design.
The car is from the Holiday Cakes cartridge and I highlighted the head lights with Glossy Accents.
I used the “waste” pieces from the grill to accent the corners of the card.
I personalised the card further by adding the father’s initials (using stamps) as the registration number.

The “World’s Greatest Father” banners were cut using the Holiday Cakes cartridge.

I hope you like my design. I have more to share with you tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by,

Summer Fun Mini Book

Hi Bloggers,

Today I’d like to share with you an 8” x 8” mini-book I made to celebrate the fun my son had last summer.
The outside cover has a layer of crackle paint and I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder on the title (chipboard) letters.
I used scallops (mainly cut with my Cricut) and Martha Stewart punches throughout the book. On these first two pages I have also used stamps and rub-ons:

The second set of pages show how much my son loved driving the tractor and I used my Cricut machine to cut a tractor, which I then covered with Glossy Accents. I also threaded ribbon through the punched edges and highlighted the pages with liquid pearls.

On the third set of pages I used the punches to make a border strip and my Cricut to cut the boy, dog and bones silhouettes. I used bone shapes to make flower embellishments.

The wine bottles and glasses on the next set of pages are stamped images and the quad bike is cut with my Cricut. All have a coating of Glossy Accents.

I made a pocket on the final set of pages and tucked a tag inside. My son drew the picture on the right hand page. 

Hope you like my mini book.
Thanks for stopping by,
Pam xx

More Cropping Fun

 Hi Bloggers,
I recently attended a Merly Impressions crop (details here) and, as usual, I was having way too much fun eating cake and shopping. This time, Chrissy had prepared a double page spread and it was absolutely gorgeous. I thoroughly enjoyed making these pages.

I haven't yet added the journaling as I intend to use these pages in my "Book of Me".
I have also created pockets behind the photos and slipped in "tags" so I can add extra journaling later.

Here are some close ups of the flowers that I fussy cut:

Here are the pages individually: 

Hope you like them.
Thanks for stopping by.
