A little filigree heart

Hello there I hope you are well today.
I was looking through my files for something to share with you today and came across a card I designed for our January team training.
I had seen a lot of pretty cards made with laser cut filigree accents. And it got me thinking then I wondered if using Stampin’ Up’s lace border punch and a heart window would give me the wanted effect,
Well it did work and so this card was born. Pool party, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade with my fave neutral of them all Crumb Cake. I think I would like to try this again and maybe do 3 hearts in a row with bright designer paper behind it, hmm I might have to give it a go.
Another card at the same training was a Valentine one, I know that’s been and gone but I thought you might like to see it anyhow.
v day
I still love this birdie punch and it works so well with the You Are Loved set for the mini catalogue.
The colours here are Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Pool Party and that ruffled Lucky Limeade ribbon. There is also a bit of red glimmer paper, I used the itty bitty punch to add some sparkle to this sweet card.
And I promised you and the girls that attended last scrapbook club  that I will show you a few of the scrapbook designs, I didn’t take pictures of everyone’s but here’s a few of them.
Here’s Rebecca’s

Rebecca is our youngest member and she often puts her mum and auntie to shame, she is very creative and very focused in class. This pages will have pictures of Rebecca’s BBF, love it !! Smile
Next is sweet Linda

I bet you can’t guess who’s pictures she is going to add to these pages LOL
Next are Louise’s pages

I love the fact that Louise decided to scrap her  favourite name for her adorable son , after Luca he is my favourite little boy I know, such a cutie pie. We did laugh at the thought of Thomas seeing these pages when he is older I can only imagine how embarrassed he would be, but I also know that once he will be a grown up adult with children of his own he would look fondly at this page, that’s what scrapbooking is all about .
Issy’s pages are documenting her favourite places to visit, I could fill a few pages with my fave spots to visit, I so long for a holiday right now Ahhh..

And then we have Lindsay’s. This one melts my heart
Lindsay(Rebecca’s mummy) decided to scrap a precious photo of her first born son. This was the first time they got to held Mathew who was born very premature.
One of Ali’s pages never got to take a picture of her second one
And this is all I have got of Linda’s pages, she will  fill these pages with photos of her scrumptious little grandaughter...
sorry to those that haven’t got their photos featured it must have been because you were to slow to finish them mwahahah
thank you so much for stopping by hope to see you again soon.
