A Beautiful Birthday

For one of this month's projects, I used the "Vogue" papers that I love so much to make a birthday card.  My daughter turned the big infinity (eight) this month, so I've had birthdays on my mind!
The most challenging and also fun part of scrapbooking or card making for me is to use many elements (embellishments, techniques) and still have the project look simple, detailed, and beautiful.

This card includes hand stitching, rub-ons, a ribbon punch, hand-cut flowers, marker, ink, brads, pop-up dots, and texture paint. I still have a lot of white space and the design flows beautifully. I used two colors of thread for the hand stitching (silver and green) to create a little "whimsy."

This is one of my all time favorite cards... so I hope you like it too!

It's Official!

Hello, Upsy Daisy fans. It's Tracey Taylor here posting my very first post as an Upsy Daisy design team member and I couldn't be more thrilled. :) 

I live on the east coast of Canada with my husband and three daughters. I am a French teacher by profession turned stay at home Mom. Scrapbooking quickly evolved from a slight interest to full blown passion after the birth of my girls. This wonderful hobby keeps me learning, working and teaching all the while preserving those everyday moments that make life special. I LOVE every minute.

The page I created for today's post uses my all time favourite sheet of Upsy Daisy paper (yellow/daisy) and a banner, my new addiction.

Papers from Applesauce and Hot Chocolate lines.

My oldest daughter spent many months excited about being a big sister again before her baby sister arrived.  Since then, she asks to hold her everyday and then says, "Mommy, would like make a nice picture?" followed by a big grin.  Of course it would! :)

I'll leave you with that for today.  Have a wonderful week.
