Mother Goose layout for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

This week I'm showing a LO as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.
I'm really pleased with the result and I like the fact that I've used G45 papers, but changed their vintage look, since there is a white background.


The layout is about the books we read together, or rather the books about pets and farm animals, which I moo and oink my way through - LOL! Loving life as a mother I must say.


I've used project life card for the journaling (Jade kit, Becky Higgins) and rather used the coordinating stamps as accents and embellishment. There are also some elements from Simple stories 24/7 collection. I've rearranged my stash to color coordinating rather then by collection and I think I'm doing better.

Combining G45 and Pion design (The Rubber Buggy)

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another card for The Rubber Buggy.

I made a birthday card, in the down right corner it says "happy birthday" in Swedish.
The card is made with paper and cut aparts from both G45 place in time and an older collection from Pion design. If you are familiar with these brands and I'm sure you are, you know that G45 is a warmer vintage tone and Pion design leans more towards a grey tone and in this collection, a cool gray. My point being, these two collections did not match, but I altered the pieces using Vintage photo distress ink, which is a warm brown.



The April elements from Graphic 45, look really distressed. But all I did was stamping them with my crackle clearstamp from Kaisercraft and I love the instant depth they get without being bulky.


Products used on the card:
Graphic 45 Place in time cut apart April (in store now is Time to flourish)
Pion design 6x6 paper in a 12x12 sheet (lots of collections in store now)
Kaisercraft clearstamp Crackle
Distress ink Vintage photo
Stamping supplies (scissors, doublesided tape, distress applicator)

Kaisercraft Birthdag card/tag

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a quick card as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.


The card is made with scraps from older Prima collections I collected from The Rubber Buggy. The black background is Almanac, the pink is prima divine (I think it was called) and the teal banner is from Seashore. Note how well they go together though :)

The size is 4x6, as the reciever of the gift has just begun to explore pocketed scrapbooking. She just turned 12 and this is for her birthday. Thus, the gift tag is a project life card! In the circle I used a Kaisercraft clear stamp.

Products used from the store:
Kaisercraft clearstamp BIRTHDAY
Lawn Fawn ink MERMAID
Circle die
Stamping supplies (acrylic block, scissors, doublesided tape)


Thank you for visiting!
