These 2 cards were made using the Lillette Rubber Romance stamp. I had my first try at paper piecing too and I'm hooked, yeah its a bit fiddly, but the results are fab. The papers are from DS George and Raspberry Road . Blooms are from Aunty Sarah's and bling from Poundland.
This one is Angela and again i used the paper piecing technique. I stamped the image onto a scrap piece of holographic card and used that for the scooter. I embellished again with Poundland bling, a metal happy birthday from my stash and paper from Pink Petticoat.
This last one is Peggy and yeah you guessed it...paper pieced. I used paper from goodness knows where originally, been in my stash for that long I can't remember which disc I printed off of. Poundland bling, brads from local craft store and "congratulations and best wishes" stamp from Argos (they came in a big tool box with other bits and bobs)

1 piece of ribbon
Any theme, any colour I dont mind. But you must stick to the recipe, no more, no less, just the amount above. Of course you can add any other embellishments, it can be a card, scrap layout or any altered item.
I used pink cardstock, the backing paper is from a 12x12 paper and cardstock pack, it has "love, cherish, romance, forever, always" covering it. I attached 3 blooms from Aunty Sarah's with a burgundy brad and used the other brad to attach my tag. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, Sentiment & Tags.

This is the front cover - I used paper from Pink Petticoat Doodleicious, Fimo numbers from Karacter Krafts, letters from a sheet from my stash.
The pages are made from one sheet of 12x12 paper from my
stash. For page 1&2 I used a photo holder thingy (have no idea what there called lol) that came with a craft kit that I got ages ago, pink fabric hearts and flower from a Poundland embellishment kit, pink vellum from local craft shop and eyelets from Poppicrafts. The verse says "It seems like only yesterday that we held you in our arms, promising you that throughout life we would protect you from all harm"
Page 5&6 - For these pages I made two pockets by turning the corners down and sticking in place. I used buttons from own stash and flowers left over from my Valentines cards (Cuttlebug Hippy Chic Alphas), again i embellished with poundland gems. I made two tags using a Coluzzle and tied ribbon from own stash to the tops.
Pages 10&11 - Scraps of paper from Pink Petticoat "O' Christmas Tree", 21 cut from Cuttlebug Hippy Chic Alphas in white glitter card (59p per pack of 10 from Home Bargains), 2 peel off butterflies glittered using Sparkle Colour glitters from Arty Miss. The verse says "All of this happened over 21 years. How quickly all of this went by. You think that things pass super slow, but it's amazing how time really flies"
... Lol see sooo busy!

I brought this tin of sweets from our local Home Bargains shop for 99p. I took the bottom off with a tin opener and took the sweets out, which left the foil intact. I covered the tin and lid with free paper from here, thanks Stephanie, and embellished with ribbon. I placed the money along with some bath petals into the tin and superglued the bottom back on. I ran some ribbon around the base of the tin to hide the join. So, this tin now looks like this ...
I will most definately be using this idea again it was very well recieved, although my sister refused to open it on her birthday fearing something would pop out at her and made her daughter do it for her. She's so trusting of me! lol
