Pretty floral cards using 'On Trend Collection' by Crate Paper

Dear Bloggers,
I recently posted 2 LOs on Tiffany's Valedictory Dinner using the 'On Trend Collection' by Crate Paper.  I absolutely adore the floral pattern and black diagonal stripes in this range so had to make a series of cards with my left over pieces.  All 5 cards were made from the contents of my table - I guess that goes to show just how much stuff can reside on one moderate sized table (and the floor around it and every possible surface within close proximity). 

The Scrapmatts chipboard as always works amazingly well.  I just love the banners, words, birds and the gorgeous lamp.

Calling Brodie - a hybrid double LO with lots of digital elements and good old fashion cutting and sticking.

Dear Bloggers,
Calling Brodie is a fun double LO that I created using quite a few digital elements that I printed and cut out.  Brodie, our little dog, does not always come when you call him.  So often he does not appear to pay any attention to your calls and then all of a sudden he will turn to you and come running as if there were no tomorrow.  I loved this series of photos as they captured the sheer joy and exuberance of our naughty boy running to me- but only when he was ready... on his terms of course.

Tiffany's Valedictory Dinner and Crate Paper 'On Trend''.


Dear Bloggers,
My youngest daughter left school last year and these LOs are of her Valedictory dinner and the pre- dinner drinks and nibbles that we hosted.  The double LO, with the orange and aqua colour scheme and lots of colour photos, provided me with quite a challenge.  The result is quite simple but hopefully striking.  Using black and white photos on the single LO was much easier and I just love all the pink flowers that are in the 'On Trend Collection'.  The problem is that my daughters prefer the photos in colour so unfortunately I have to keep the black and white photos to a minimum.
The words are by Scrapmatts and they are just gorgeous.

BOTH LAYOUTS REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION

New Baby Boy Card using my Stamping Up supplies

Dear Bloggers,
Some good friends of ours recently became grandparents for the first time.  I had lots of fun making a 'boy' card - a real novelty for a mother of 3 daughters.
