Get Well Card and a Scrapbook Page

Before my mother-in-law went in for surgery, she visited me in my Paper Studio for an afternoon and we worked on our own projects together.  It was very nice to have company in my room and very productive too. She worked on some birthday cards she needed to send and I worked on my wedding album.

We worked so well we both had time for a little extra.  She made a stunning get well card.  The ink she used for the sentiment was a perfect match for the paper.  It really looks like it was professionally printed on the paper.

I like the warm, inviting colours of this card.  I got some free scrapbooking papers when I ordered some tool accessories from Scrapppin' Great Deals.  They were clearing out older stock for CHA releases.  The papers were not colour combinations I would pick for myself.  My mother-in-law used this paper flawlessly!  Since then, I have found some use for the rest of the paper (to my surprise) but that is for another post.

Here's the extra scrapbook page I made for my youngest nephew's album.  He is right about 1 and half now and I still haven't finished his 1 year album. The other two nephews had them before their second birthdays.  (Eeeek!)  You know that saying, the later in the line you are born, the fewer the pictures of you!

I kept to my style for this one: one pattern, rounded corners, focal embellishment.  The baby elephant is a stamp that my sister coloured with her water colours.  She made a few and gave me this extra one to make something with.  I thought it only fitting to put it on a layout of her and her youngest son!


  1. Beautiful card and the page too. Can't take my eye away from the lovely elephant and the get well stamp on the card.Great work.

  2. How lovely that you and your mother-in-law both like making cards! Her get well card and your scrapbook page are both wonderful.

  3. The scrapbook page looks lovely, I really like the rounded edges. Your mother in law did a wonderful job with the card. Hope her surgery went well.


  4. Your MIL's card is so pretty.
