Scrapbooking in the month of May

I mentioned that it is International scrapbooking month didn't I?
Here is a 6"x6" scrap page that we did at the lovely Telita's place a short while ago.
I have used the vibrant but Autumnal "Pumpkin Pie" smooth cardstock.
Did you know you can now buy it in 20 sheet packs in the single colour of your choice ?
(20 sheets in a package $14.50)
The stampset we used is Nature's nest (not officially retired ... because it may come back in the main catalogue in September who knows).
The Turtle has been "paper pieced" which simply means I stamped the turtle image onto a piece of patterned paper and cut him out.
Then for detail I used my stampin' write marker (in pumpkn pie) to watercolour his tummy, claws, eyes, tail and some spots on his shell.
He looks rather cute on the pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon.
The photo is of darling Jess at her favourite spot in the Japanese Gardens.
Other stamps used: Vintage Labels (SAB), Frames with a flourish.
Ink: Black stazon and Riding hood red for the background.
Eyelet border punch on the basic black cardstock.
Inspiration: The black, red and orange colour scheme came from pillows in an Autumn furniture catalogue.


  1. sorry this site very hard to read. just a note to tell you that some people cannot read purple on black.

  2. Thank you so much for your feedback. I was hoping someone would let me know if the black background was working - which it was not. I have quickly adjusted the background perhaps that is easier to view.


I really appreciate your comments, so let me know your thoughts:
