Clean-Up Creations!

Now that I have some fast internet back I thought I would share a couple of pages I did after I had my big clean-up on the Easter long weekend! It's amazing what you find (or more like what you forget you had....lol)

This is one of those rare photos that my hubby loves. Him and his princess snapped on Australia Day. There is no doubt that she is the apple of her Daddy's eye!

And a pic I have been meaning to scrap for a very long time. My rather handsome young Pop in his Air Force uniform. My Pop was a one of a kind treasure. I learnt so much from him and when he passed away it left a big hole in my life. I still miss him every day :)

3D Card Tutorial For My2Angels

I hope everybody had a fabulous Easter Long Weekend. Ours was nice and quiet and filled with chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just the way I like it....lol

Today I wanted to share a tutorial I did for My2Angels.

Tracy is starting a resource section to share some cool tips, techniques, tutorials and templates.This was a project I adapted from a book called Paper Sculpt Sensation. The original was like a shadow box kind of thing and much larger. I loved the 3D idea but wanted to use it in a card format, so this is what I came up with.

Bazzill : LYB - Love Letters PP : Love Ribbon : Jones Tones Puff Paint : Kaiser Pearls : Machine Stitching : Spellbinders Classic Circle : Crystal Brad : Heart Locket Charm : Jenni B White Organza Flower : Red Glitter Ribbon : Tiger Grip Glue : Double-sided tape

More details on the tutorial can be found on the My2Angels Blog.

Also featured on the blog this month is the very talented Anne Paterson as a guest designer. Check out her blog here. Amazing work!

Thanks for calling in :)
