mountain snow skiing scrapbooking

Some more of the days creations, using up some old preprinted photos.....  On the third one, the snowy village scene was made on the cricut design studio, to merge all of the images together into one strip (for the shadow backing) then simply layered.... so easy to use up scraps too by placing the right size and different colored scraps in the right place and cutting all at once...

I spent most of the day scrapbooking as it is my last day off before returning to work on Monday, it's been a great holiday...
These pages are made using frame layouts I bought a few years back and never did anything with them...

click 2 canvas as seen on tv

While on holiday I saw an add on daytime tv for these click 2 canvas kits, you get 3 frames in the pack and 4 canvas sheets to print via your inkjet printer (one in case you stuff one up!). You can also use their online software to print either a two canvas split or three as per the one I made here....It's so easy and framed in a minute or two! The special offer I saw was two packs for the price of one, so I couldn't resist the bargain and am really pleased with how they turned out....

Photo book - affirmations

I decided the other night to print some of my favourite animal photos taken from around taranaki and add affirmations to each one. So I made this book of 40 photos. It didn't photograph very well as on glossy photo paper but you get the idea.....

wedding table settings

I spent mostof the day yesterday making these table setting hangers for my brothers wedding coming up in February.

They decided to use photos from places they have been and the large photo is double sided and will be attached to the tables centerpiece. The placesetting cards will be hung on a board. The wedding is a picnic theme and therefore the red gingham ribbon and red and white theme has been included to match the wedding invites and thankcards made last year.
