Anything but a card!

Hello and welcome,

Thank you for joining me as part of the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop.  Demonstrators from around the world will be sharing what projects that have created for this month's theme 'Anything but a card!'

I knew instantly that it was time to get my scrap on, so I dived into my mountains of photographs that I need to scrap with and found this gorgeous photopgraph of my three granddaughters (soon to be four of them) as Lexi-Lu returns back to school.

Usually I know what papers, stamps etc I am going to use as I already know which photograph I want to use to go with them, but this time I found the photo first and matched things up to the photo.

I could not believe how many colours in the photograph matched Stampin' Up! colours - the brick wall was an exact match to Cinnamon Cider, the weeds (lol) was Shaded Spruce, Isla's dress was Terracotta Tile with Cinnamon Cider dots.  I just love the co-ordination that Stampin' Up! has to offer across their range of products.

The date is mounted on a die-cut scallop circle (Layering Circles) and I used a gold hoop onto the Gold Foil as it just framed the date.  By adding the bow from the Forevery Greenery ribbon twin pack it added the finishing touches.

For the ribbon I used a darning needle and weaved the gold thread through the Very Vanilla ribbon and attached with double-sided tape.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Crafty Collaboration blog hop and head on over to have a look at what the lovely Jo is working on.
