A Birthday Hedge Hog



Isn't this little hedgehog cute? I think he is just right for birthday cards and love to use him that way. He's from the 'Fun and Fast Notes' stamp set form Stampin' Up! and I have given you a small sneak peek at one of the new paper sets coming out in the new Ideas Book and Catalogue on September 1st (you can order one by contacting me via SusanSalutations of you live in Australia)

I hope you enjoyed seeing this cheerful little guy :)

Bon Voyage!



These days there seem to be more and more people joining the Armed Forces. I had a need to make a card for just such a person recently, so I customised it for the occasion. I have listed all the 'ingredients' for this card on PaperCraftCentral for you, should you care to step on over and find them :) You will also find another idea for a Bon Voyage card on the same page.

The Next Page



I managed to get another page of the Wedding album finished and thought I would show it to you. I made it a bling-y page :) I started with a piece of Stampin' Up! Real Red cardstock and added some pieces of designer paper from other companies as I wanted to go with the black white and red theme. The little ribbon rose in the top right corner was hand made from Stampin' Up! Real Red grossgrain ribbon, a bit of tulle from the wedding dress and a hat pin. I ran some more ribbon down two sides of the layout and added bling to the ribbon. After I placed the photos I added in more crystal bling in the corners of the main photo. The lettering was added last and I used a ruler to guide me to make it straight.

It was a fun page to make. Maybe I should have added a ladybug or two, but it looked finished at the time without so I didn't. What do you think?
