Never-Ending Joy

This is a quick Birthday card using the Never-Ending Joy set, (105038).
As the weather has been so bad, I decided to use the pretty Spring colours of Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery.

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to accurately align the flower heads over the stems, to add the bow and the greeting from the Sincere Salutations set, (105156).

Stamps: Never-Ending Joy & Sincere Salutations

Paper: Very Vanilla, Apricot Appeal & Certainly Celery

Ink: Certainly Celery & Apricot Appeal

Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Snail Adhesive, Certainly Celery 1/4” Grosgrain Ribbon

Petals And Paisleys

This layout is my version of the one shown on page 51 of the catalogue.
I used the same pack of Petals and Paisleys Designer Series Paper (110093), but chose different papers from the set.
It looks quite different doesn’t it?

It’s a 6” layout, which I love doing as I’m fairly new to scrapbooking and the size doesn’t scare me nearly as much as a blank 12” sheet of paper does!

I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the word ‘happy’ correctly positioned.
The paisley accent and the letters for ‘Jack’ were lifted on dimensionals, but the layout still fits nicely in the 6" x 6" Linen Album (109901).

The stamp set and Designer Series Paper were designed to work together, giving you lots of options for use.

Stamps: Polka Dots And Paisley
Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy & Petals And Paisleys Designer Series Paper
Ink: Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron & Not Quite Navy Marker
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Snail Adhesive, Linen Thread, Very Vanilla & Old Olive 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon & Dimensionals

Heart Pockets

I met some lovely ladies down at Newlyn earlier this month. They are members of Just Scrapbooking, a club run by Linda Knight and held on the first Saturday of the month.
As part of a Stampin' Up! party, I showed the ladies how to make the Heart Pocket that I used on my Valentine card and they then incorporated it into their layouts with Linda in the afternoon.

These layouts in progress are lovely. I am always amazed at how one idea can develop in so many different directions!
That's the beauty of attending a class like this, where you can bounce ideas off one another.
