I finally found some time since getting back from overseas to whip up a quick card. I've been dying to play with my Basic Grey Scraplift prize - the new Paper Cottage collection. I had a baby card to make for a couple who just had their first baby last weekend. I chose some pretty papers from the collection and made a card with no stamping and used the stickers in the collection for the name. It was a fun and quick card to make. I'm submitting this card for the current Play Date Cafe colour and CAS-ual Friday's Strip challenges. It feels so good to get back into it again, I really missed my craft room!

I'm so happy to report that my guest book for my niece's 21st was very well received. There were over 100 people at her party last Friday and the whole book was filled up with signatures and well wishes! Here are some photos of the book:

  2. Beautiful banner and love the use of pattern paper for the name. Lovely card. Thanks so much for playing along with us @ CAS-ual Fridays :)

    BTW, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Regarding you question, I printed the pattern paper on cardstock. I used Wplus9 white cardstock. You can also use layering paper from Hero Arts or Gina K as well.
