The colours I have used are pale plum, pure plum, always artichoke and mellow moss, and of course good old whisper white.
The half pearls from the pretties kit look fabulous with it.

Apart from the brads and the Pixie Pink Stampin' Write Marker, all the elements, card and stickers come from the Petal Party kit.
The flower was made using the scalloped edged punch on the Designer Series Paper. Contact me for instructions or to book a workshop for a demonstration.
Handy tip: If something is going to be hidden behind another layer of card, for example ribbon, or in this case the line of green, circle die-cut stickers, then just use a small piece covering the ends with the top card layer. This will save you quite a few stickers and a fair amount of ribbon. In the example above there are no green, circle stickers behind the photo!
Contact me today to purchase your Simply Scrappin' Kit or any other product.

Everyone loves taking baby pictures. Cute little ones on their backs or their stomachs, making adorable faces or getting into funny situations.
Getting a good picture of your little one once their more mobile, however, can become a bit more of a challenge.
Often, they're moving from one thing to another so quickly that, by the time you're set up, you've missed the shot.
Here are a few tips for capturing those fast-moving kids:
1. Use a fast shutter speed. Sports photographers know the only way to really capture the action is to take the kind of shot that freezes time. Set your shutter speed for 1/500th of a second or higher and you'll be able to avoid most blurry photos... even if you're moving your camera to track your subject when you snap the picture!
2. Use a flash. Sometimes, in low-light situations, you won't be able to shoot at a very high shutter speed. In those situations, a flash will do a fair job accomplishing the same benefit as the first tip.
3. Shoot wide. Don't worry about getting too close to your fast-moving subject. You run the risk of cutting them off at the edge of your shot. Instead, shoot a wider angle. That way, you have more choices for composition when you edit the photos later. And don't worry about cropping too much when you edit. Most of today's cameras have enough megapixel power that you won't lose resolution no matter how much you zoom in for your edits!
Employ these three tips consistently and you'll find a lot more action photos to choose from when you're putting together your scrapbook pages

2. Score them using the bone folder and a ruler. Then fold them in half.
3. Adhere one half of a punchie to another using a 2-Way Glue Pen or a SNAIL adhesive. Do that on four of the punchies. (I forgot when I did mine so had to pull it apart hence the photo showing six punchies stuck together).
4. Place a piece of taffeta ribbon down the centre and then continue gluing down your punchies.
5.When you have stuck them all down make a loop at the top with the ribbon using a piece of matching thread to tie it. At the bottom thread a bead from the pretties kit onto the taffeta ribbon. I find it easier to tie a piece to thread to the ribbon first and pull that through the bead first. You need a bit of brute force, but it does work!
I hope that you have fun making this.
The Curly Label Punch Bundle is part of this months specials. If you purchase this or a variety of the other items on the Christmas Gift-Giving Guide and total is $105 or more than you will receive the Scalloped Square Punch for free. What a great Christmas Present.

On this sample I have daubed around the edge in Pink Passion Ink and after hole punching and treading hemp twine through I attached a Felt Fusion Flower with a Rhinestone brad.
This label is attached to a pack of cards that I gave to friend for her birthday. She was so excited to receive it. So would your friends to! Just make a variety of cards put them in a SU! large cello bag, wrap some matching ribbon around and put a cool tag on it. A fabulous Christmas gift.

I have used the square hole punches for these. I have thought in the past that they were a waste of time, but when you want to make a card in a hurry the square hole punches are fantastic. I highly recommend them.

Please excuse the saying, it is on a bit of a lean. I was trying to finish the card with my 21 month old son in my arms. Obviously not something that I shall try again!!

I love the Sour Cream Box. It is very quick, easy and stunning! It is basically a cylinder that is twisted in the middle. Check out http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ for the tutorial. The white Baroque Motif design and the flowers are embossed. For the flowers I dipped a piece of black card stock into versamark then clear embossed it before punching with the Trio Flower Punch.
The white circles of the flower have a blob of Crystal Effects on it to give the 'brad' look.
Give me a shout if you need to stock up your craft cupboard.

I have used the gorgeous Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon. I struggled to get the beads on (from the Pretties Kit), however I discovered that when you tie cotton thread around the end of the ribbon and uses brute force, you can manage to get them on.

-Cut a length of 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.
-Snip the edge off along the length.
-Use your snips to tease out half of the strands ( do this a few strands at a time).
-Put the point of your snips in every 1.5cm and twist them about to make a gap (this will also create the wave effect at the bottom of your ribbon).
-Pull the ribbon straight.
-Adhere it to your card.
-Twist the threads together that you pulled out of the original ribbon.
-Use a Designer Brad to make the top of the tassle.
-Attach to the card.
I hope that this makes sense.
