My youngest is turning 21 very soon and for each of my children I have made an album / 21st birthday card for everyone to sign at their 21st celebrations. They are a work of love and this is the last one I have had to do. I am so happy to have it finished at least a week ahead of time ( some of my other efforts have needed an all night stand to get them completed! ).
I have used retired papers, rubons and stamps as well as current products from the Stampin’Up! range. The rubons have got me through three albums and I still have plenty left! Remember when rubons were in the catalogues?
Here are some of my favourite pages. I have used a 7×7 inch chipboard album that is held together with metal file rings.
Do you like the banner stamps on the page above? They are one of the Sale-a-bration sets you can earn for free from Tuesday 28th January.
My cheeky boy then and now below.
I love this photo below – two of my lovely loved ones.
I am really pleased with the album and also very relieved that it is completed!!!!
Thanks for looking.
The current seasonal catalogue – Holiday Happiness ends on January 27th. If there is anything in that catalogue that you have not ordered yet that is on your wish list, you still have a bit of time to get your order in to me or shop in my online store.
Here is a card I made last year using the painters tape technique and the Magnificent Maple stamp on page 18 of the Holiday catalogue.
A quick and easy card to create as a thankyou or male birthday card.
Colours used are Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Soft Suede.
Thankyou stamps are from the set Lots of Thanks.

The cute world globe stamp comes from an exclusive stamp set that is only available until January 2. The set is called Love You More. You can see all the images in the set below. If you would like to order this set go to my online store and look for it under the Valentines heading.
The large background stamp is called World Map. It makes a really cool background don’t you think?

The Designer Series paper is Modern Medley. It has a terrific combination of Basic Black and Very Vanilla designs. The sentiments come from Rev Up the Fun stamp set, along with the tyre imprint.

Happy New year to all my fellow card creators! I hope 2014 is a creative one for you!
Here is my family Christmas card for sending out to family and special stamping friends over Christmas.
It is a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest with just some subtle changes made. You can see the other version here.
I used Early Espresso ink and card instead of Basic Black. I also coloured my doily with Early Espresso ink too.
Well that’s the last Christmas card for awhile but once again my New Years resolution is to be better prepared and have my Christmas cards made much sooner in the year!
