Kaleidoscope - Scrapbook Page 1

I wanted to do something different to my normal 'style' for this month's Scrapbook class.

I decided to use the Kaleidoscope DSP and I managed to use all 12 patterns on this page :o) 

Because some of the patterns are really bright and busy, I only used a little of each. I also inked all the edges with Basic Grey ink - this helped tone the colours down a little. 

I separated the patterns with longer blocks of solid coloured card stock. These I embossed with various Embossing Folders to add more texture to the page.

The Essentials Wooden Elements add more interest (Spring / Summer catalogue - page 18). These are fabulous little accents that you can ink, stamp or write on. I haven't decided what I'll do with mine yet, I'll do that when I select the photos for this page :o)

Look out for the second page in a couple of days time :o)

Love & Laughter ....... Wedding

I have some pretty wedding cards to share with you today :o)

They both use the Love & Laughter stamp set from the main catalogue.

I used Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky for the card bases. These are lovely soft, subtle colours which are perfect for weddings.

I overlaid some of the new Foiled Vellum onto the front panels. This I secured using mini Glue Dots behind some of the foiled hearts, so you cannot see them at all :o) - Vellum is always a challenge to secure and this time I didn't want to use brads.

The gorgeous closure is created by using the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch and is secured using some of our Organza ribbon.

The sentiments and images are all stamped with Versamark and Heat Embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.

More ...... Another Great Year

I'm still playing with this stamp set :o)

This time I've paired it with out lovely Fresh Prints DSP stack and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

More paper piecing - on the cup cakes, with highlights of Dazzling Diamonds and tiny pearls.

I coloured the images with a Blender Pen and the ink pads.
