Little Birdy Collection

Happy New year everyone! I still can't believe it is the year 2010....Celebrating the year 2000 doesn't seem that long ago. I've decided that this year will be the start of many new things for me creatively. Let's hope when I look back at the end of this year I see lots of new techniques and projects created.

To start this year I've create a very simple collection of cards using the Good Morning Sunshine Design Series Paper along with the Sweet Little Sentiments and Cheep Talk Stamp sets from Stampin Up. These three little Whisper White cards were created with scraps of cardstock I found in my paper stash. Making yourself use scraps of cardstock not only uses up items you may have thrown out but it also creates inspiration for different layouts. The use of Trend Trees perfectly goes with the cute little birdies.

These next two cards were cut out whilst away on holidays. I had limited supplies with me (no ribbon and no paper punches...what was a girl to do without some of her favourite things!!!). When I returned home I added the ribbon and added the glitter shaker card effect. THis first one isn't for anyone in particular...just yet!
But the 2 little owls shaker card will be going out to my friend Jaz who has recently become engaged. When I started fiddling with this card I didn't intend for it to be an engagement card, but along the way the 2 little owls ended up as love birds. The little owl hearts were created with antique brass heart brads. Looking forward to sharing more with you in 2010! Take care!!
