Hi Everyone,
I have made a card today, and I must say, its been
a long time and I was feeling quite rusty! I have always
wanted to have a go at a shaker card, I saw a tutorial
probably a year ago, but Im not sure where that was,
maybe splitcoast stampers or youtube.
and seeing as it is soon to be Easter, I thought I'd
dust off one of the stamps from last year's Easter collection.

Close up so you can see the 'shaker' contents...

Wedding Guest Book

Hi all,
Yes I am still out here, sometimes I can't even find myself  :)
Anyway, my Nephew got married on the weekend and he asked
me if I would be able to make a guest book for everyone to sign.
I had, what I felt was the perfect stamp for the cover, so I happily
agreed, even though I had less than a week to make it,
Thanks Reece! but I managed to pull it together and hand it to
them the day before the Wedding, holding my breathe, that they
would like it (lol) I filled the inside with pages where the guests
could not only sign their names but add comments to reflect their
favourite memories of the couple, how they have come to know
the couple, add any advice they would like to give and also
encouraged them to draw a little pic of themselves to make it a
special little keepsake. There were also verses and photo mats for
them to add their fave photos of the day.
I have only photographed the front cover today, as the inside
contained lots of personal information...

The photo doesn't capture all of the glitter, but that doesn't really
matter. I kept everything throughout the book Black, White and
Pink as these were there wedding colours.

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Stamping xoxo
