Topper is by Papermania
It was a struggle to find something to fit across without obscuring the roses or the writing, nothing looked quite right. I'm still not happy with the 'celebrate' but it was the only thing I had that didn't make it all look un-balanced.

The bottom left and top right corners have been sprinkled with Frantage embossing enamel. I love this stuff but have found it doesn't like melting through multiple layers! Also much easier using a hairdryer style heat-gun rather than the long thin type, the heat is spread gently so it doesn't blow the speckles off before they have chance to melt.

Patterned paper and rose both a recent magazine freebie

Mini Album

My friend recently became a grandmother for the first time so I made this mini-album for the new arrival.

Everything I used, except for the ribbon, is by Papermania, including the acetate album.

Same as the previous post really, cheeky recycling of a gift tag from Clearly Besotted. Embossing folder is Cuttlebug.

Many Thanks

Bit of a cheeky one here; I recently bought some stamps from Clearly Besotted and included in the package was a small card and tag. So basically this card is the small card but matted and layered onto something bigger.

Incidentally I can recommend Clearly Besotted for prompt delivery and a nice selection of stamps, plus some have matching dies.

I seem to have 'lost' the last three weeks somewhere, hope to start blogging again in the next day or so.
