Cardstock Techniques

On my website you can watch a short video that will show you different techniques for achieving different looks from Close To My Heart's white core cardstock. Techniques include tearing, crumpling, sanding and dry embossing.

I used dry embossing to make the subtle white borders on the pink baby layouts.

Baby Layout

This layout was inspired by a design I saw in a Close To My Heart publication. The first page is from the birth of my friend's daughter. The second page is baby Siena at 6 months. She's a beautiful little girl with sparkling eyes.



I used baby pink cardstock for the backgrounds. I dry embossed a border and sanded it to bring out the white core of the cardstock.

Paper used is from the Sweet Pea set.

Just Blooms Big Pinks flowers have buttons for the centers and ribbon for the stems.

The name Siena is made with Dimensional Elements letters wrapped in Sassy Strands

I also added a few sitckers from Sweet Pea My Stickease

These two scrapbook pages tell the story of my favorite clock, that I bought earlier this year.

I'm Late

I'm Late 2

I used the following products:

I added a quote from white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, and printed a picture of him on the purple paper to use as an embellishment.

I caught a fish and he was This Big

My husband and I love to fish, but we hardly ever have a chance to. Also, we have never caught anything while we were together. This summer we got to go fishing on Donner Lake and I caught one.

Here are the scrapbook pages I made to commemorate the occassion.


For this one I used the "Bottom Border Footnotes" layout design from Reflections.


This layout uses the "Triple Play Offset" layout design from Reflections. The fish is actually really small, so I enlarged him in a copy of the picture, cut out the biger version and mounted it over the original picture. You can still lift up the enlargement to see how small he actually was. This just cracked up my husband.

The paper used is Rustic Trail

Embellishments are from Rustic Trail My Stickease plus some fishing line.

Stamp sets used are:
Catch of the Day
Hook, Line and Sinker
Relax (C1237)
