We have used the Welcome Christmas Stamp Set and the designer series paper that was available in last month's promotion (and I have totally forgotten the name).
Here is the otherside of the ornament.
One of the girls from the club (waving hi Jo) suggested putting photos of the kidlets on these ornaments to hang on the tree. I think that would be so cute.

So as you can see I have used a lot of my retired stash on this layout.
Sunday, December 5, 2010
I have used a base of Old Olive cardstock. I always save my diecut papers when I buy them to use as templates. I have used one of these templates to make a Real Red photo mat. I doodled around the edge with my Basic Black marker.
I have punched circles from the Bella Rose paper with various circle punches (I think I used every circle punch I own.
The title was stamped with the Big Deal Alphabet and trimmed out.
In the little frame I have used a definition from the Definitions set. The cute frame stamp is now retired (and I cannot for the life of me think of the name of the stamp set). I journalled on white strips and adhered these to the layout.
I hope you have enjoyed this little look at my last scrapbook club.
All materials Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.

We have had a hugely busy day today in the Johnston household. It started out bright and early with young Mr Sam waking up at 5.30 (I know!! and I am so not a morning person). We then spent the next few hours waiting anxiously to see if cricket would be cancelled or not.
Thankfully it wasn't and Zac's Under 12 team won their grandfinal match. I was so excited for the boys. They have worked hard and really deserved their win. Zac bowled really well and got two wickets with the last two balls of his over but then didn't get to come back on so we will never know if he would have got his hat-trick. Yes I am a very proud mumma.
Ben's team (under 9s) only had two people in their opposition turn up so they had a muck around game for the last of the season. Ben has really enjoyed his first season of cricket and he has improved so much.
After cricket it was home for a few hours to prepare for Ben's 9th birthday party which was at the Indoor Sports Centre ...so yes more running around and sweaty boys. They had a blast though.
Zac is now at his second birthday party of the day so before I pick him up (and then his sleepover guest) I have five minutes to share the fifth layout from scrapbook club.
Here is a close up of some of the detail on the page.
I love this colour combo of navy, red, kraft and chocolate chip.
I still haven't added my photos to this page as I wanted some post renovation photos but of course 11 years after we started we still haven't finished. As my husband says, "You can't rush these things".
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time this weekend to create.

Sam, decided to "help" me take photos of my layouts lol.
How cute is that dinosaur!! Beanie's page is all Basic Grey Archaic and Matman's uses Kaiser - finally more of my stash of older papers is being used. Feeling very proud of myself now.
I have a page of Zac on the go - I just need to pin him down for some help with the journalling and Sammy, well I need to pin him down so I can get a photo that isn't blurry...he moves so fast these days.

Believe it or not I didn't have a stamp that I liked for this layout so I actually inked some non-slip rubber matting and stamped on my background with that. I am really happy with the effect and will definately be using that again. The ink I have used is Night of Navy. The papers and embellishments are way old ones from my stash and it feels so good to have finally used them. The only fairly new item is the ticket that my Mum gave me a bunch of when I was admiring the collection she had (thanks Mum).

There are a couple of things I really love about this page. The first is the handstitched titled. It was very easy to do by stamping my title with the Jumbo Outline Stamp Set and then using my paper piercer to pierce holes for my stitching.

For my card I used the Haiku Designer Series paper. The flower embellishments are made by layering different sized circles that have been punched from the paper, scrunched and inked. I have added some Felt flowers as well.
The sentiment and leaves have been diecut with my new favourites Timeless Type and Little Leaves for the Big Shot.
The Green scalloped circle is a Carousel Note from my stash of retired product.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the challenge is open till Midnight Wednesday so you still have time to enter.
Edited to add: My card was picked in the top 5 this week at Just Add Ink .... I am an excited little vegemite.

What says Easter more than a cute bunny (well except chocolate maybe).
Obviously, I must have liked the colour challenge last week as I have used the same colours again this week (they just happened to match the bunny my Sam is holding in the photos).
Here is a close-up of the punch art bunny. I have sponged all the separate pieces to give him a little depth.
The base of my layout is Tempting Turquoise cardstock topped with a sheet of paper from the Windsor Knot DSP set. I have cut a circle from Green Galore cardstock and stamped this with the Polka Dot background stamp.
I have used my Scallop border punch and Curly Lable punch on some cardstock strips and added some So Saffron ribbon for a bit of detail. The flowers come from the So Tweet chipboard set and have just been sponged with ink.
Don't forget to check out all the other entries at Just Add Ink.
