Word Art Wednesday #72... part 2

Two entries in the one challenge!!  I need to lay down lol Will Word Art Wednesday go into meltdown?

I made this card for our granddaughter, Bronwyne, who is such a blessing to our family.  It's a pity that we don't see her very often with our son being in the forces they live where they're told which isn't very convenient for us :(

The die cut shape was in a pack of shapes from a friend so I don't know the manufacturer, and I backed it with some paper from my stash.  The decoupage is Forever Friends.  I didn't used 3d foam pads for the layers as our postage in the UK is governed by the depth of the package.  I cut all the layers and then stuck them down using Letra Tac from Letraset which still gave a slightly 3d effect.  The sentiment was printed on my other favourite Letraset product, Safmat and then burnished down on the card

Word Art Wednesday #72... part 1

It's been so long since I made an entry in my Word Art Wednesday Journal I'd almost forgotten where it was lol

The word art that I've used isn't the one from this week but from a while ago

The images and papers are from Teddy Bo. I do love these stamps, they're really nice to colour using my ProMarkers. I used glue dots to give a little height to the images.  With it being a journal page I didn't want to add bulk by using 3d foam pads.  As usual I have printed the word art on to Safmat from Letraset and cut it as close to the writing as I could.

Creative Card Crew #32 Masculine

For our new challenge at the Creative Card Crew we are looking for you masculine creations.  

We are being sponsored by the  Scrapping Centre 

who have generously donated a $15 store voucher for the winner of our random draw.

In an earlier challenge we had a card that was made using a double sided circle folded to give a double pocket.  I did save the link to the blog but now cannot find it :(  So if the lady who made the original card reads this please let me know so that I can give you the credit

I made my card the cheats way by making two gate fold cards, using a lightweight cardstock from Costco, and sticking them together.  I had curved the tops of the cards to make the arch shape and then edged them with narrow ricrac peel-offs. I made a tag with another piece of card.  The happy birthday was done using a set of stamps from Dimension Stamps and finished off with a brad and ribbon from my stash

To enable the card to stand up I added a piece of card which I had cut from an A5 card to make it into a 6x6 card. I always keep the offcuts and generally use them for gift tags

I for In Love

The current ABC Challenge is I for In Love

I am also entering it into the Word Art Wednesday challenge #70 anything goes

Last week I was sorting through some files and I came across some photographs of Mum & Dad's wedding and I thought that they would make a lovely scrapbook page                                                                                                

I've had the paper in my stash forever and I can't remember whose design it is.  No multiple papers or fancy mounting from me, I'm a  'keep it neat and tidy' kinda girl lol Flowers are from Prima with the centres being Card Candi.  Horseshoes are cake decorations and the lace, ribbon and braid are from my stash. Pearl sprays are again from stash with the tiny flat backed pearls being from Anita's.  The lettering was computer generated and printed on to Safmat from Letraset  I then cut it out as close as possible to the words and numbers and burnished them down.  I really love using Safmat as my writing is horrendous lol

Behind this photo is a tag for my journalling.  Granddad was an Air Raid Warden during WW II in Liverpool.  He saw some horrific sights in the aftermath of the bombings which affected him deeply, to the extent that he lost all his hair.  He always wore a cap outdoors and because he wouldn't be able to wear his cap in church he bought a wig and continued to wear one until his death.  We grew up seeing him both with and without the wig but we all have a lasting memory which we smile about to this day.  In later years Granddad had diabetes and Nana would lift his wig and rub his head, to see if he was getting hot if she thought he was likely to have a hypo, and plonk it back down at any angle!!  He did look funny to us as children 

definitely in love!

We have no idea who the small bridesmaid is but the outer ones are two of my Dad's sisters and the other one is my Mum's sister

I don't know who everyone is on this photo but I have written on a tag, which is behind the photo, the names of the people that I do know.
