This was so much fun to make.
Made mainly from envelopes to store birthday cards in, it makes a great gift or if you're like me and easily forget birthdays, then its perfect to help keep you on track and organised too.
Each envelope stores the birthday cards for that month and you can keep track of the birthdays by jotting the names down for each month.
The envelope on the last page would be great for storing postage stamps and a few get well or thank you cards in.

These cute Punny Pals stamps are Close To My Hearts latest Operation Smile charity stamp set. With every purchase of the stamp set US$7 is donated to Operation smile. I think its just adorable how these stamps make people smile while giving babies the surgery they need to smile too.
The ladies in this class loved making these cards and learned a few new techniques.
The Owl has a cloud background which was sponged over a cloud template. A fun technique which makes every card unique and different.
The Otter has a 'wet-look' background made from inking the stamp block and spritzing with water then stamping on to the whit card. This creates a watercolour background perfect for the otter. We also added some dots of liquid glass to really add some dimension to the water background.
I'm looking forward to playing with this stamp set more throughout the year and sharing it with you.
After looking for some inspiration for my next page a friend added me to a scrapbook challenge. This challenge...
The Distressed Look.
I have to admit it took some conscious effort to tear the paper initially. I'm one of those people who has a wreck it journal and can't bring myself to wreck it. I know, that also puts me closer to the crazy end of the scale too. But hey I'm OK with that.
So this page was made using the Close To My Heart "No Worries" paper and sequins, some buttons from my stash, and you also get a sneak peek at some of the new compliments coming out in next months catalogue! The compliments are from the "Better Together" collection so keep an eye out for them, as they are gorgeous!
Oh and I nearly forgot, the cute little stamp "Live the story you want to tell" was from convention. Stamped using 'Cashmere' for a shadow effect then stamped slightly off centre in 'Sapphire'.
Now I've shared this page I might add some personal journalling to the left of the photo. I don't like to hide my journalling but I do like to have something to read and reminisce over down the track.
Its been a few years since i created a scrapbook page. Mainly because my kids are grown up now and I don't have many photos printed. Most nowadays are on my phone or computer. But since I've lost 2 hard-drives in the last couple of years and one of the many jobs of a mother and record-keeper for my family I though it best to start creating again and get the photos off the computer into gorgeous albums my family will be proud to show when friends come around.
So after the Close To My Heart convention i got inspired to create and these 2 pages are what I came up with. They were also the only photos i had of any quality that i wanted to use. So these pages are dedicated to my twin (though nothing alike) nieces using "Little Dreamer" workshop your way kit.
