Using a pagemaps sketch

Hey was your Tuesday???

Hope you've had a great day.

Just a quick share tonight ....a recent card I made using a Page Maps sketch for the Scrap Pile April Queen of Cards competition.....

...this is the sketch....


and this is my card......

SP Queen of Cards Sketch Card 

I had fun with Bo Bunny Love Shack papers...lots of fun colours and patterns, a couple of chipboard swirls painted with MM paints and a Prima Esprit flower.

Thanks for popping in to see what I've been up to. I'm off to have my cuppa and decide on what to create next:-))) Have a happy Wednesday.....

Scrap Pile Mini Retreat

Hey are you today?

It's a beautiful Sunday morning here and we're enjoying a pretty slow start:-)

My title refers to a little get-together the Scrap Pile girls had in Brisbane Scrapbook Princess - a beautiful shop in Cornubia.


About a dozen of us got together, many of us meeting IRL for the first time (Hi Leone, Jaki, Sally, Leah, Kristy, Karen, Fiona - all Brissy girls from the Scrap Pile forum) and Mel and Helen who travelled down from far north Qld to be there......also met Kerryn and Shannon from Scrapbook Princess -so  lovely to meet them all:-)  

Of course at any "retreat" more chatting than scrapping is the order of the day (not to mention the eating and laughing) so I always take along something that takes only minimal concentration to complete...I have learnt this from experience LOL. I cuttlebugged a bunch of small card bases before I left and took SU! stamps, inks and markers with me to dress them up throughout the afternoon/evening. Here's the results.....

Thank You Cards 1 

....colours are Pink Pirouette, Cameo Coral (left card) Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss....stamp set is the retired SU! Bodacious Bouquet...tags are cut using the CBug Tiny Tag Dies and stamped with Inque Boutiques Thank You Sentiments - one very handy little set:-)

Thank You Cards 2 

...this time I've used Eastern Blooms and coloured them with markers direct to the rubber and then "huffed" on them to remoisturize before stamping.

...and lucky last....

Thank You Cards 3 

...Bodacious Bouquet again, stamped with Taken With Teal (left - I need to reink my pad I think) and Tempting Turquoise on the right, leaves either Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive.

So a good feeling to get some cards made to have on hand (often for my SU! customers) and enjoy a lovely long afternoon with like minded crafty souls.....something that I find is so good for my soul:-) Thanks girls!

I'm off so have a wonderful Sunday all.

CPS Sketch #112

Hey's your Thursday going?

Woohoooo it's nearly the weekend....happy, happy, happy:-))))

I've had a play with the latest CPS Sketch, some SU! colours and some Hero Arts Stamps.....

Here's the sketch..... 112 ....and here's my card......

CPS 112 

What do you think???? Something a bit different on the all white background huh.

The colours are Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red....the stamp is from HA Circular Designs Set and the sentiment is from the Stampendous Flower Box Set.

So, do you have some lovely plans for the weekend?

Whatever you get up to I hope it's all thoroughly enjoyable.

See you again soon.....
