Young Love

This is a scrapbook page that I have created, I loosely followed Jen Fisher's 12 Months of Scrapbooking - January sketch - check out her YouTube video HERE.

The photograph is of my gorgeous eldest son and his beautiful girlfriend just before they went to their university Summer Ball last year - it has taken me a while to get around to making this!


I have used beautiful papers from the Polkadoodles Belle Papillon Vintage CD Rom.  I inked the edges of everything - the letters and butterflies are also from the CD.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Opposites Attract

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, it's the dreaded one layer week and the theme is Opposites Attract.

I googled opposites and this idea popped up, google is a wonderful resource - I don't know how we ever managed without it!


I printed a black rectangle along with the words onto white card stock and then folded it to create my card blank, I then printed another black and white panel.  I die cut a heart from the card blank and cut another one from the other black and white panel turning the die so that the black was on the opposite side.


I then used the inlaid die cut technique and inserted the second heart into the cut out.


I would like to enter this card into the Less is More One Layer Card Challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
