Mini waterfall folio

My lovely Hubby organised a day out on Sydney Harbour at Fort Dennison with his Parents for Mothers Day. I wanted to commemorate the day with a mini album for my Mother in Law. I used Ginger Ropp's 'waterfall folio' idea & came up with a larger version to accomodate 6x4 photos. This is what I created.

Ink smooshing

So over this long weekend I wanted to try a new technique called 'ink smooshing'. I believe Laura Bassen (you can find this talented lady on You Tube) coined the phrase. It is a gorgeous way to add watercolour (or in my case, watered down distress ink) to a card, whilst maintaining some control.. I hope you like my first attempt!

Thickers organisation

Thickers... I can never seem to get enough of them! But I have found that over time the packaging rips & the letters end up everywhere! This led me to a mission of finding a better way to sort, store & organise my collection. Who knew there was such a thing as thinkers storage pockets? I was thrilled to find these! I bought mine at (just search for thinkers storage) at $5.95 a pack of 10, they were a great price! I can also highly recommend the communication & service at Papertrendz, well worth checking out!

Card making with Lawn Fawn

I have been having some fun with Lawn Fawn stamps & dies making some cards. As always, I couldn't resist using my wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen to add some sparkle & shine. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out!
