Scrapbook Kits with a Difference "Happy Birthday" Card {and a Comment problem}


****Hang in there for the E-Book giveaway - it's coming soon!****

I am beyond frustrated trying to comment on blogs today.
The comment box keeps disappearing mid comment,
which is very frustrating for me as I like to write long
comments at times as some of you well know!  So please
forgive me if you haven't heard from me - I will have to try
later as I need to create a layout now & get off the computer!

***Is anyone else having this problem???***
I am using Firefox these days as Google Chrome kept crashing...


Just sharing a little card quickly, did this for 
{Scrapbooking Page/Card kits based in Adelaide but you can buy online.}

Supplies and instructions needed to make this card will
be up in the store soon - it comes as part of a kit with 2
other layouts that I will be sharing here soon.  This is my last
month at Scrapbook Kits, my 6 month term is up and I have
opted not to renew it.  I have a lot on my plate this year and
some other plans up my sleeve too...but have had a
wonderful time working with Jules and the girls :)

 I used the gorgeous The Scrap Cake papers from Poland,
aswell as the Prima Lace, flower, ribbon and gems provided
in my kit.  I did add the alpha stickers for the sentiment
and the doily.  I misted it with Pale Ale and Popsicle Blue 
from Maya Road and sprayed the flower with Ranger's
Perfect Pearls for a high shine.  I am giving this card to
my bestie, attached to her gift, as obviously it's not very
practical for putting in an envelope but pretty nonetheless!

Hi, do check out this post of mine, it has a link that people can use, which will help with the commenting, the more people do this , the better for us to comment, lol, found that the white page is gone from that blog the moment they have done it!! Maybe you can also do a post, seeing that you also get a lot of feet running through.............:))
Love the card, flower is stunning!!

Love the card Helen, the colours are simply smashing! quick question for you: did you stiffen your ribbon at all to get it to stay in a curled position? I am loving the technique and would like to try it out myself :)

Bellaidea said...

Love papers ;) and your card is very pretty!

Stefanie said...

I have stuck with google chrome and have had no hassles, funny how that happens us being in the same country and all. Not to mention I got your comments so you must have got it sorted.

Stunning work!!! Blogger has actually gone crazy today - I tried leaving a comment on someone else's blog just before yours and the word verification kept coming up saying I hadn't typed it up right but I had! I did it over again about 10 times lol and gave up! Also sometimes I have typed up a bit and then it disappears so I have to type it up again. So annoying!!! PS - I use Firefox.

Fabo card Helen!

I was having a lot of trouble...had to switch my comments from embedded to pop-up and delete third party add-ons that I had on my blog. That got rid of the problem.
