Great Grandparents

Didn't get a good picture of this page. More ivory in real life. Made two of the flowers from spellbinders  dies. One is chipboard. Brads are bo bunny I think. Bought center flower at scrapbook studio in a bulf bin and the other two (organza) are a Walmart package. Unknown pp and die cut paper. MS punches. Eva crysals. Dustic attic chipboard. Unknown wooden flowers and pearls. Fabric store laces. Tim Holtz background stamps. Photo is of my husband's paternal grandmother and her family.

Beautiful Olivia

Followed a design from Heather Jacob for this page. Added a fussy cut peacock as my daughter loves peacocks. MS and EK punches. Five different punches used. PP is Tim Holtz from a paper pad from a couple of years ago. Script is printed on pink velum. Also punched some velum right under the photo. Flowers are hand made from the papers and white cardstock. Inked with pink michaels ink. Unknown brad. String. Sewing. Dollar store pearls. Unknown white cardstock. Really like how this page turned out. Love this photo. Big thanks to Heather for the design.

Little Executive

Love these photos of my granddaughter. She is just over two and mimics everything her mom does. I used the Bo Bunny Isabella line. Used two spellbinders die cuts and my big shot and cardstock.  Background pp is GCD Studios. I bought a bunch of it a few years ago at Michaels as it seems to be hard to find that bubble gum pink that matches little girl clothes. Fussy cut a bunch of items from the bo bunny papers. Made all the flowers except the tiny white ones from the pp. Tiny white are Prima I think. Cut edge with decorative scissors. Unknown crystal swirls. Martha Stewart and EK Success punches. Unknown organza ribbon. Maya Road chipboard swirl and butterflies. Inked silvery grey with michael's ink and then stamped with pink and a Prima stamp. Unknown pink crystals. Doily. Tim Holtz die cut letters and the GCD Studios papers. Sewing with a decorative stitch. Dollar store brads.

My Girl

Really struggled with this page. Such a great picture of my granddaughter but couldn't seem to make it all go together. May still pull it apart and try again?? DCWV patterned papers from a paper pad from Michaels. Fabuscraps chipboard inked and embossed and stickled. Stars are also chipboard. Inked and embossed. Flower is hand made from the pp. Papers behind the photo are punched/embossed with folder/stamped and fussy cut and a doily piece. Writing is computer scrift on apple text editor. White ribbon is recycled and stamped with a clear stamps set. Lace is fabric store. Pearl swirls are Eva I think. Martha Stewart and EK Success punches. Did some sewing and distressing and inking. Dollar store butterflies.

Little Neighbour

This little guy lives by our cabin. I have tried to photograph him many times but they are all just a blur. Then when I was out walking I head him chattering and got this nice photo of him in a tree.  The pp is bo bunny I think. Unknown cardstock. I stamped it with a leafy stamp and stazon ink in olive green.Cut the tags/labels with a sizzix die and a big shot. Cut the tree with my gypsy(for layers) and cricut. Used some washi tape around the photo and a transparency on top of it. The pp behind the photo is a page from a note book and recycled packaging with script on it. Prima crystals. Ranger stickles. Stamped sentiment. Martha Stewart punches. Took a little artistic lisencing with the spelling as neighbour wouldn't fit so left out the gh.  Maybe should have just made a bigger label.?? Edges are cut with decorative scalloped scissors.

Dianna's friend Nicole took this photo when Liv was over visiting her brother, Justin. I just love it.  She is such a little lady. I used some of Bonnie's flowers again and some martha stewart and ek success punches. I stamped the background pp with a music stamp that I have. It matched the other pp very nicely. I used close to my heart stick on studs (look like brads) and a pearl flourish and a transparency clock. The sizzix tag die is a gift from a friend. Thanks Charlene. I jsut love it. I made this page at Scrap a Palooza. It was a very fun crop!! I didn't sew on this page which is very unusual for me. I am very happy with how it turned out.

Grandpa and Tatym

Love this photo of Wally and Tatym last summer. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon with family and I got a few good shots. I won a package of Close To My Heart papers and stamps at Scrap A Palooza this year and used them to make this page. The inspiration for the design is from Heather Jacob. She is amazing. I used some martha stewart and ek success punches. Used some hand made flowers from Bonnie's Paper Garden. Also make some handmade flowers myself. (the folded type ones). Did some fussy cutting and sewing and stamping. Used three different stamp sets and some unknown brads. Used tim holtz tiny attacher for the banner. Used spellbinders dies and big shot machine for the labels tucked behind the photo. This is not a good as Heather's layout but I am pleased with it. It was a totally different look for me to try.

Grandpa and Maire

So beautiful to see how much Wally loves our grand children. What a great grandpa. Maire is just so beautiful and so cooperative to have her photo taken. I used a beautiful rubber script and butterfly stamp on this page. Also used ek success and martha stewart punches and did some sewing. The senitiment is altered with ink and embossing powder and stickles. It was wooden. Used some unknown flowers and fabric store ribbon. Used some stamps and a circle cutter.Used Gabrielle's yellow butterflies only I changed the colour in photoshop. Rubbed some ink on the white background cardstock in addition to the stamps. Unknown pp behond the white cardstock.

Beautiful Together

I attended Srap A Palozza again this year in February. Such a fun crop and the prizes and classes are just great. This is a professional photo of my step son and his beautiful wife. I will have to get the photographer's name and add it to this post. Used a pp that I just love which has been in my stash for years. Used some punches, stickles, wooden words, crocheted flowers and bo bunny flowers and mini flowers from my stash. Used maya road chipboard, inked doily and fabric store lace and eva pearl flourish and a tag. Really like how this one turned out.

Little Drummer Girl

Tatym at Christmas with her new drum set in her new princess dres.. Such a beautiful child. Used a bunch of unknown items from my stash for this page and did some sewing, punching and stamping. The pretty black vines are in the craft section at Walmart and are very inexpensive. Bought a transparency of clocks and cut some out for behind the doily. Cut out triangles from unknown pp and stamped them and edged them with a black marker and a ruler. Tried to follow a Heather Jacob page for this project. She is so very talented.

Live Laugh Love Livy

My beautiful granddaughter, Olivia. Her mom has her giggling in these photos. Used bo bunny papers, some unknown flowers and some flowers from Bonnie's Flower Garden. Also used wooden words and various stamps with my Cathie Allan Position-It. Just got that tool and I really like how I could restamp over and over to get the words nice and dark. Then embossed them. Used a sizzix die and martha steward and ek success punches. Also used the yellow butterflies shared on Such a Pretty Mess. Thanks to Gabrielle for those. Unknown ribbon, rub on and pearls. Did some sewing.
