Happy Birthday with Scott

Scott here is none other than this adorable Dog from Sizzix

It was a friend’s son’s first birthday and I wanted a fun card – which he – the 1 yr old :) – might like to see when he grows up.

And I’ve been wanting to use this adorable pup forever.

So here it is – a cute pup with a bow.. wishing the little boy a Happy Birthday.

Bless you T.

The Happy Birthday die cut is from this neat – super useful – set called Card Phrases #3

All About You – A special scrapbook

A few months back, my friend A from a local crafters group asked me to make scrapbooks for some students she teaches.

That sent me on a tizzy to see how I can help in making one which will truly be useful. It took me a couple of months to get the basics ready, figure out an easy-to-read font, content, and format ready.

And this is a result of that work. This is book is good for all children. There are more than 100 individually stamped images which the child colours herself/himself – to make the scrapbook her/his own.

Each page has been reviewed over and over again for usefulness. And as usual, I’ve used Fabriano Elle Erre card stock – so the child can write, scribble, colour directly on the paper.

These books truly have a piece of me in them. I hope whoever uses them will be enriched.

I’ve used dozens of Papertrey Ink stamps – especially the Tiny Treats – Valentine Stamp Set.

Each page had a cheerful Caterpillar – a familiar face which travels with the child page to page

And a star in each page – dreams do come true if you wish and work hard enough.

I am not showing all the pictures here – for obvious reasons :). But the pages are All About Me, Pages on likes and dislikes, Friends, Family, Home, School, Holidays & Trips, and a couple of pages on what the child wishes to be when he/she grows up. Please do contact me if you want to see the other pictures.

Thanks for stopping by :) And please do let me know how you liked these.

I’ll leave you with a picture of the last page – an About page of the scrapbook
