Christmas with Gina’s designs

Too Early Christmas scrapbook layout

 I didn’t really spend Christmas with Gina’s Designs as the title suggests lol, although thanks to the wonders of technology Gina and I did spend Christmas morning together 🙂

I have a layout for you today made using the new String Alongs in the store, embossed in separate areas using a versamark pen. It seems like forever since I did a physical scrapbook layout instead of a digital one and I really enjoyed making it!

Our boys decided to get us up at 5.15 am on Christmas Day morning, hence the title for the layout, I had the boys write onto some tags with an embossing pen which I then embossed with clear powder along with my own tag as well. When I put the layout together I created pockets for the tags by gluing down only tiny bits of the strip of paper that the tags sit behind, thus allowing the viewer to take out the tags a read the reverse (which explains the title!)

I know, I know and bit of a corny title but I really couldn’t resist it 🙂 The Freebie Friday this week over at the Gina’s Designs blog is a file to allow you to make a cracker. I made mine with an autumn feel but they would make super Halloween treats for the kids, just fill them with some sweeties and you are good to go.

Getting organised

5 Drawer storage cabinet from Ginas Designs

Here is the last set of drawers (well for now anyway until I get a new box from Gina 🙂 )  I have had so much fun decorating these, and I really love the way they turned out.

This set is the 5 Drawer Storage Cabinet I used the same set of papers to cover the drawers and sides and the labels on the front are from Gina’s Stackable Labels Set

Another birthday comes and goes…

Ginas Designs 15 Drawers

… and I am another year older (yes I know it comes to us all!) Did I have a good time I hear you ask, well yes actually I did, thanks. I got a little messy and put together a set of drawers that my best pal sent me, I seem to have had them for quite a while now and thought it was about time they took on the correct form rather than being flat packed! You can see what they look like in the “bare” form over at Gina’s Designs.

As I said, the pieces come flat packed and you decorate them how you like, so I got out the Gesso and paint and set about turning the wood bits blue. Once that was set aside to dry I assembled the drawers, I cheated a little by using some plain pink card-stock for the sides and backs (well you don’t see them do you 🙂 ) I then used some patterned papers from Fancy Pants to decorate the fronts of the drawers as this matches with my Desk organiser that I made some time back.

Here is the finished article:

Now all I need to do is sort out what I am going to put in it – don’t think that will take too long do you ?

Here it is next to the organiser:

Butterfly tag using SplodgeAway Mask

It’s that time again over at the Gina’s Designs blog, yes its time for another freebie and this week it is a great butterfly tag printable.

Here is the simple tag I made with it:

Butterfly tag using SplodgeAway Mask

I used one of my SplodgeAway masks with some tea dye distress ink to create the tulips in the background. The punch used for the band at the bottom is an E K Success punch (large scroll border). I used diamond sparkles on the butterfly to make it stand out a little.
