Scrapbook boutique challenge

This months challenge was exactly that for me :) I immediately saw Halloween paper and stamps in need but being relatively new to card making my stash of goodies is limited and not a Halloween stamp or paper in sight. So I ended up being inspired by the colours. Here is the inspiration photo for this month :)

My first attempt at a more Vintage type look

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

I really enjoyed making this was a challenge as when I first started out I had a vision of it being full of florals and scrolls and bling but I kept changing it around (I am not great with the flower arranging :) )eventually I decided a little less. The only thing I wish is that the stitching on the card was a little more standout but otherwise happy with it.

Paper Smooches

Thursday, October 3, 2013

I have just discovered another stamp company that I think I will not be able to live (stamp) without :). Paper smooches have the most gorgeous stamps so whimsical and fun and the fonts are amazing. I will order in a few weeks but will then have to wait for them to reach me in Australia which is about another three weeks so thought I would download one of the free digi stamps they have made available and play with it. Thanks Paper Smooches your stamps rock!!!!!!
