See how she grows

My Great Niece is one this week so I decided to make an 8 x 8 inch card which could be used as a scrapbook page.


Materials used: 
Dragons Lair Designs – Spring Medley Mini Kit (available free from the DLD Fan Group Facebook Page)
Clarity Stamp – Letter Box Kit (I can only find it as a multi buy with the numbers)
Papermania – Typography Large 1 acrylic stamp
Rubber Stamp Tapestry – Dainty Floral Stamp Set
Memento ink pads various colours
black archival ink pad
8×8 inch card blank
8×8 inch printer card
photo paper

The base of the page i.e. the pink paper and the framed photographs, was put together as one printable sheet with Serif Craft Artist using the Dragons Lair Designs Spring Medley Kit.

I used the Clarity Stamp Letterbox set to make Imogen, stamping onto a sheet of the green paper from the Spring Medley kit. I also stamped the number 1 on the same paper and filled it in with the Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps using Memento ink pads. Both have then been cut out.

The flowers have been printed from the Spring Medley kit and fussy cut.

All the elements have been arranged and adhered to an 8×8 inch white card blank.

I also made the insert from a sheet of the pink paper to match the front of the card.

Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Fan Page has a challenge using the Spring Melody Mini Kit so why not head over there and take a look. If you would like to enter yourself the kit is available free to members of the group. If you are not already a member just request to join.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
