We've had a few birthdays in our place in the last couple of months so there's been a bit of card making happening. My dad had a milestone birthday. Hannah and I made him this malteser cake (with some extra jaffas for a pop of red.) Here's the card I made ....
The robot stamp is retired now. I love the word bubble framelits - definitely a handy set to have in the framelit collection.
Hannah (12) made use of the Little Letters Framelits to make this card.
Jack (8) elected for just a pen and a piece of paper. Love his sense of humour.
Before his birthday I got in touch with a swag of relatives and got them to send a birthday message or funny memory. MDS made it easy to put the scanned or typed messages, stories and photos together into a photobook.
Here's a look at the front cover. I used Well Word DSP throughout - the digital DSP packs make it easy to produce a coordinated look.
And the title page (with faces masked for privacy.)
It is a bit of a personal gift so can't share too much more but it came up so well. I think the nicest part of putting together photobooks is watching people read them. Great way to capture lots of people's thoughts and a ton of funny anecdotes. I kept it super simple - just picked a background paper, inserted the scanned letter or typed in a text box. Added a matting layer and drop shadow. Photos done with the same process on the facing page.
I'll be back next time with Hannah's birthday bits and pieces.
