Freebies - Birthday Card for Sister

I made another DT card for the Scrapology Freebies Challenge, This time I used a Square Pyrimage given away with Creative Cardmaking in Issue 38. I also used papers from the same magazine. These items were promoting Crafter's Companion - Popcorn's Pals papers and die cuts. I'm not really very fond of Pyrimage but thought I would give it a go for this challenge.


My sister is mad about cats and it was her birthday a few days ago, so I made this for her.

I added:
Card Blank & 3D Foam Pads - Craft Creations
Letter Stickers - Simple Stories
Decorative Pins
Gems
Punch Around the Page Punches - Martha Stewart
Button
Ribbon
Distress Ink

Thanks for looking and I hope you had a very good birthday Sylvie.
Please see details of the challenge on the Scrapology Blog.

Freebies for Easter - Cotton Candy



I made this selection of Easter cards using the free papers from Simply Homemade Magazine Issue 3. They were from the Cotton Candy Kisses collection by NitWit.  I made six cards and still have enough left for a few more. I have quite a collection of free papers and magazines stored away, but the reason I used these was for my contribution to the design team gallery on Scrapology for April.
The challenge is to use freebies from magazines to make a card.

I added:
Buttons
Twine
Stamps by Lili of the Valley & Paper Artsy Jofy
Distress Inks
Gems and Pearls
Punches - Martha Stewart, Woodware and Stampin' Up
Ribbons

Here are the cards again:

Marjorie


Time for another heritage layout.

I am still working through the lovely old photos I acquired recently. This one is Marjorie Phyllis Holder, she was one of my Grandfather's thirteen siblings, so she was my great Aunt.

Marjorie was born in Bromley in 1908 to Frederick Holder and Emma Jane Florence (Williams).

Marjorie married Gordon Stebbing in 1928.


I used:
Basic Grey Eva Collection papers, Element Stickers, Alphabet Stickers and chipboard shapes
Basic Grey swirl stamps
Memory Box die for the olive branches
A mix of roses and other flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

Dovecraft Metal Butterfly with added gems 
Flat-backed pearls
Prima Stamp
Memento and Distress Inks


I made another layout with a photo of Marjorie's sister Rose, but this is under wraps for the next Scrapology challenge!
