Lawn Fawn - Scrapbooking my Nephew

Happy Easter everyone! I hope your short break (if you get one) is relaxed, filled with family, friends and reflection! (oh, and chocolate!) 
I've got a scrapbook page to share with you today... 
For this scrapbook page, I wanted to keep things quite plain, and focus on these amazing photos of Lachlan, my little Nephew. I printed them off, trimmed them down, and matted them on some patterned paper, this is a really old collection, which I can't even remember who made it! I used a few small off cuts from a Lawn Fawn paper pad, and then stamped and coloured some little dinosaurs from Lawn Fawn as well! I fussy cut them out, and layered things up with a few stickers (My Minds Eye)
Here are some close ups
The Main title - Amazing Smile, was made using a sticker and a chipboard word which I coated in white embossing powder, and heat set twice. 
I added some Studio Calico cork arrow stickers and called this layout done!

From the Heart Stamps - Masculine Birthday Card

Hi guys! I have a quick giveaway happening over on my FB page, it will be drawn when I return home this afternoon (2pm AEST) All you have to do is comment on the post, of the custom journals!
Anyway, on to todays card!
For this one, I printed out the digi - Birdbrain with Candle, and coloured it up, using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I then doodled around the edges, and set the image aside. For the card base, I used paper by Sn@p and layered it up with some very old October Afternoon, and Echo Park papers. I doodled around all the layers, and stamped a sentiment. I added some twine for some texture, and a couple of rhinestones.

The Greeting Farm & Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Cards

Hi guys! I've been popping things in, and changing things up, in both my madeit and etsy stores, so pop over for a look!
Last night, I was up late, creating a couple of birthday cards... One just for fun, the other because a friend is celebrating their 29th birthday today, and I procrastinated creating ;)
Here is the first one - 
I had to play with my all new patterned papers, from Kaisercraft (OMG, this is an amazing collection!) I grabbed the woodgrain paper, and the giant flower one, and the other paper is Carte Bella. I layered them up, and then decided on the stamp I wanted to use, which is from The Greeting Farm and coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I popped her into one of the polaroid frames, from Kaisercraft, and stamped the sentiments, which are a mix of Some Odd Girl and My Favourite Things. I added a bunch of paper and resin flowers. Here is the close up
This one is being entered into - 
Friday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 67
The Greeting Farm - FFF Photo Inspiration
Now, on to the second birthday card, it's a lot different ;)
I printed out the digital stamp, from Bugaboo Stamps, and coloured it up using my Spectrum Noir Markers, mounted it on some blue paper from Echo Park, which I'd printed the sentiment straight onto. 
I added a few rhinestones, and some doodling, and called this card done!

Some Odd Girl - Library Mae

Hi guys! 
I've been busy with work, uni work and of course, more custom orders! There are still a number of cards in my madeit and etsy stores, that are looking for homes, so fear not! (this one will be heading there soon!)
I started out with the leftovers from this card on my desk, and decided to just colour up Library Mae, for no other reason than she was on my desk ;) I also used some notepaper patterned paper (My Minds Eye and Echo Park), and a piece of twine. I added my Mae, after I fussy cut her, then added some flowers, including a cherry blossom and some paper roses. I attached 4 rhinestones, and a button, and stamped my sentiment (My Favourite Things) To finish her off, I added dimensional magic to her glasses
Here's the close up.

The Greeting Farm - 1st Birthday Card

Hiya, I've been creating, quietly! I've been working on some more custom cards, if there's anything you want, pop over to my facebook page, and hit contact me! I should also point out, Friday is the last day to order Easter cards!!
Anyway, onto this card - 
For this card, I used one of the Princess Anyas, stamped her, and coloured her up with my Spectrum Noirs. I used patterned paper from My Minds Eye (I think) and paired it with a non branded ombre pink paper. I doodled around the edges. Attached some pink ribbon loops and a trio of sequins.
Here is the close up. I added stickles to her wand and crown
