I'm a glamour girl! Guest glamour girl for Ruby St Designs that is... and those who know me in real life will know that is most likely the only time I will ever be described that way. So I might as well make the most of it! I have the most wonderful cardmaking kit called Ganesha to play with, so stay tuned for the results soon.
is Pete's birthday present. We thought it was funny that it had "compact hi-fi system" printed on the box. Not exactly compact by today's standards, but very exciting anyway - this thing will enable us to record our old vinyl albums onto CDs :-)
Remember a little while back I said I was going through a bit of a no-photo stage? Here's some evidence:
a layout I did for Blue Bazaar a while back, using my stamps - can't remember if I
posted it here or not:
Set of cards from last month's For Keeps, using Scenic Route papers:
childhood sleepwalking adventures:
And another one from Scrapbook Creations, inspired by a scene from the Simpsons in which Homer is using reverse psychology on himself (not that I would do that):
From For Keeps - love how this one was photographed in the magazine:
A big thanks again to everyone who comments here - I always intend to reply to everyone individually, then either run out of time or I don't have your email addresses. But I do appreciate every comment - and thank you to those who are sending suggestions for alternative etsy store names. And in reply to Marina, who asked how I do my stitching - I have heard that free form stitching is easier if you drop the feed dogs, but I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't read the manual for my sewing machine to learn how to do that yet! So the sewing on my layouts and cards is just done the usual way.
Thanks to Ngai for trading ATCs with me - I love them! I have added them to the pile of wonderful ATCs I now have as a result of the trading card project we have going at the gallery at the moment. We had our first group gathering at the peace festival, and it was a great success. I think I'm going to have to frame them as they are all too beautiful to leave in boxes or albums. More piccies to come soon!
