F is for......Future

I've got a two pager to share today. Another two from my niece's Wedding last week. She doesn't know it yet, but I'm making an informal album for her. She'll have her official one of course, but she loves my cards so I thought she'd like her wedding scrapped. I'm designing each page so that I can cut out various parts to layer up. This is partly so that I can make the tags removable. I'm adding a marriage/romance related quote to each one and I thought it would be nice for her to be able to write some memories on the back if she wants to. I'll be adding real ribbon to the tags when I print the pages off, the ribbons here are for design purposes. I used CAP2 to put the pages together and a lovely kit from Go Digital Scrapbooking called Chut de reve. It's rare that I use just one kit but this one just worked fine on it's own for these two pages. I also used a past sketch Stuck on You Sketches and a template from Template Dreams - great when you're a bit stuck for time!

These are the two tags - they will enlarge if you click on them.

We are......

My niece got married yesterday and I couldn't resist creating a page of the new family! I've used items from various kits and some effects in CAP2 to create this page. Everything except the photo and the white scalloped embosses paper has had the colour changed. I didn't intend it to be green and I'm still not quite sure how it ended up this way! It seems to work though, so I've gone with it. I didn't get chance to do anything last week which was a shame because I really liked the sketch at Digitally Sweet, so I decided to use it anyway and combine it with the current challenge.

A Beery Happy Birthday!

We have two young men's birthday's this month - they will both be 22 and it can be quite an awkward age to cater for. I got round it this time by raiding my scrapbooking supplies and a digi stamp from Just Inklined. Having painted the digi in ArtRage, I put the card together in CAP2, using various effects such as ripped paper edges and inking around the edges of the striped backing paper. I liked the effect of the Happy Birthday on the barrel which looks a bit like a brand burned into the wood. Apart from the digi, the kits used were: Beaches (Daisy Trail) - the stripey paper, Adventures (Sherwood Studio) - the other papers and screw heads, It's all in the wood (Miriam's Scraps) - the barrel.

Lilac Christmas

A simple Christmas card today. The image is one of my own digi stamps, given a glitter effect in CAP2 and added to a white paper with 'embossed' corners. The main bp has been given glittery edges and I've used one of the new border punches that came with the latest patch for CAP2 on the white embossed paper. The sliver paper is one of my own.
