Creatures of habit

Are my family! It was also my Mums birthday this week and also the birth of the newest family member Logan. His card I will show you later but here is what I made for my Mum.
Its a little mini book/ card inside the most gorgeous pink suitcase which you can buy at The Stampman

I have made some little tags and added the ticket stamped images to them (told you I loved them!) I also added a tag to the suitcase with to someone special on. Ive made it so everything is removeable if she wants to re-use it - shes a crafter too and we love to re-cycle!

Here is the mini book/card out of the case.
And now the pages. This is a mixture of Penny black and stampin up stamps. Sunset orange adirondack ink and pink carnation archival ink. The pages are a little over atc size so its not huge just right :0)

More stampin up stamps and the gorgeous doily lace punch from Martha Stuart.

More stampin up stamps - not sure about the "dream big" one though. Again a mixture of adirondack and archival inks. Ribon, brads and buckle from stash.

Cant rember the make of either of these stamps - i know I bought dream play one from ebay and the other from the Stampman. Same mix of inks ribbon and flower/bard from papermainia goody bag
Paper by Die cuts with a view, flower punch by woodware - embroidered rose from Bits and bats - again not sure of stamp make but its one I use a lot!

So there it is! Happy birthday Mum!
Lots of new babies this week so my next post will be full of baby boy cards!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by x
