For this layout I've used Collections stuff:
Ephemera "Old Tickets" and "Creative Butterlies Print Sheets"
Large Chipboard tickets which I've mounted my photos on to.
Have also used Kaisercraft Timeless 'Sheet Music' paper and October AFternoon papers and tin badge (and also some Echo park alps/number stickers) - all available from Anna's Craft Cupboard.

Amanda's post made me think I hadn't uploaded the last few cards I'd made - and it takes me so long to make one we wouldn't want to let that brain strain go to waste now...haha

Can you tell we've had some baby girls born here recently?? LOL. My friend named her baby Niamh - which you say Neeve - I'd NEVER seen it written like that before, so wish her luck with not getting it misspelt/misread for a while!!
*edited to add* all these cards use my seam binding which you can buy direct from me or from Anna's Craft Cupboard. Some of the colours at Anna's has sold out but she will re-stocked about mid-week. You can still order direct from me though if you are in a hurry for some.(I've sold out of the 'cream' though - more to come very shortly)

You can now buy my seam binding from ANNA'S CRAFT CUPBOARD right about HERE
You can still buy them from me here on my blog - but if you'd prefer to just add them to your order from Anna's then now you can! Tres cool.
I've now the rest of the colours in - they are olive green, red, chocolate brown, navy blue and champagne
For some reason blogger doesn't like the chocolate brown photo so these are just 3 of the 5 colours but you can check them all out here on Anna's

How remiss of me - I realised I have completely missed putting this on my blog. I was honoured to asked to be on the SCRAP THE GIRLS Creative Team - woohoo!! There is a bunch of talent on the team and I can't wait to join in the challenges.

Seam binding ribbon - LOVE it!

I've just discovered this seam binding! I always admired it on peoples work and just had to get my hands on some. It's all crinkly (after I make it that way!LOL) and is just different to ordinary flat ribbon.
I thought other people might be wanting to get their hands on some too seeing as I was hunting around for it, and so I bought WAY more than I can ever use - scratch that - WAY more than I ever SHOULD use! ;)
SO if anyone wants some of this I will post it you - it's $2 for 2 metres, with $1.20 postage for how-ever-many you like as I can fit heaps in an envelope.
The colours I have now are:
*CREAM (quite a 'white' cream)
*BLUE (a turquoise-y blue - you can see it in the "O'Neill Side" LO HERE.)
*BLACK (haven't done an example of this one yet - but I will!!)
*PINK (kind of a 'bright' but nice pink - a "fun" pink if you will...You can see it in the top LO HERE)
*CORAL/GRECIAN PINK. This looks a lot more 'orange' in this photo but it's a beautiful vintagey corally pinky-apricot (get all that??) - you can check it out HERE

ALSO - on the way I have:
A MORE YELLOWY CREAM (champagne-y)

If you are at all interested - just flick me an email to brfstynan at bigpond dot com with your choice of colours.
You can pay by either Paypal or direct deposit - or any way thats easiest for you!
