Fabulous En Francais Note Book



Our card swap group was challenged this month to make a post it note book.  Here's how I decorated mine. 

My post it notes were lime green so I chose Gumball Green as my cover.  I embossed En Francais in gold and sponged the edges with Summer Starfruit then matted onto Basic Black.  To add some colour I stamped Fabulous Florets in Gumball Green and Strawberry Slush then fussy cut out.  I wrapped the flowers around the edge so they also decorated the spine.  Then a few Basic Rhinestones add a touch of bling. 

En Francais makes a super background whether it's embossed or not. 

It was fun making something other than a card this month. 

As it's wednesday we have a new set of deals to show you.  Is there anything in there that inspires you?

Deck the Halls


All the eggs have been eaten.  Easter holidays are over.  So it's time to think of Christmas?  No not really but I've joined in with Merry Mondays today and now have another Christmas card for my box!

The challenge is to use Christmas words and decorate the letters.  I've used a sentiment from Christmas Messages as my focal point and decorated the letters with my Real Red and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Chalk Talk Framelits to make the label and decorated with the Little Leaves Sizzlits and Basic Pearls.  The background was made using the Music Note Wheel.  

Funnily enough we were listening to Christmas music today!  I seem to still have a Christmas CD in my car and my son thought it would be funny to put it on with the window down as we drove through our village.  My daughter, her friend and my son's girlfriend were all in the car cringing as Slade's Merry Xmas Everbody blasted out.  
What a giggle!! 

Merry Christmas, I mean Easter to everyone!! xx

Zoo Babies Makes Me Smile


Happy Easter! 

Have you got lots of yummy Easter Eggs lined up for tomorrow?  

Sorry I don't have an Easter card for you today but one for the Less is More challenge.  We are challenged to make a card with a theme of Makes Me Smile.  Now chocolate definitely makes me smile but that's for tomorrow.  

Instead I thought about our trip to the Zoo last Wednesday.  My father needed a lift to Edinburgh Airport so I thought I would take the children and add in a trip to the Zoo.  It was quite daunting as it's a 2 1/2 hour drive there and back and I'm not sure of the Edinburgh roads.  However we made it to the Airport and then the park and ride and onto the Zoo with no bother at all.  That definitely made me smile!  Phew!!

Loads more smiles as we had lots of giggles going round the Zoo.  Before the children get too old to come along with Mum (they are 14 and 12), it was great to have time together to share a memorable day.  That makes me smile.  

For my card I coloured the lion using Stampin' Write Markers - So Saffron and Peach Parfait and stamped on Whisper White.  I added a few lines of Sahara Sand so he wasn't floating.  This was attached to a card base of Naturals White.  I made a window panel of So Saffron using the Windows Framelits and rounded the corners.  The panel is popped up on Dimensionals.  

I decided to make this a birthday card as it will be our great nephew's 1st birthday in May and I thought this just looked so cute!  Itty Bitty Banners and the matching framelits made the sentiment with some Candy Dots to finish off.  Loving these Candy Dots, are you? 

Did you see the pandas?  I know you are asking.  Unfortunately no.  They were all booked up!  With all my planning and googling maps etc I didn't think to book a time slot. :(   
Just means we will have to return for another visit.
