"Bliss" Double Layout

As soon as I saw the Sale-A-Bration stamp set "Bliss" I just knew I had to have it! It's a lovely set, perfect for cards and scrapbooking alike! It also has a vintage feel to it.
With this layout, I wanted to keep the colours very muted so went for a total neutrals palette: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. Very Vanilla would have worked too but as we were all wearing a cool blue colour, white was a better choice.
I based the layout on this sketch from Page Maps:
Sale-A-Bration finishes at the end of March, so if you love "Bliss" or any of the other three stamp sets available free when you spend $120, contact me now to place your order.

Baby Sympathy Card

What a solemn few days it's been in New Zealand. My heart goes out to all those affected by the terrible earthquake in Christchurch, especially those families who lost babies. With a baby in our own household at the moment, the thought of losing him is just unbearable. No words can express the grief that everyone is feeling at the moment.

I thought it would be timely to show a baby sympathy card I made recently. A friend of mine lost her baby girl full-term just before Christmas and this is what I made for her. I scoured the SCS site and found this card which seemed to signify what I was wanting in a card; soft, simple and clean. RIP Baby Teresa.Stamps: So Many Sayings (Retired), Curvy Verses, Fresh Cuts
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Tea Party DSP (Retired)
Ink: Pretty in Pink
