Hey everyone! I’m so very excited right now. Some of my closest friends are taking me out tonight for my birthday. We are going to the Plough Inn for dinner and then meet up with some more friends over at Laidley for a get together. It is going to be sooooo much fun!
Today though Tina (one of my co-conspirators for tonight and also one of my downlines) and I had an absolute laugh stamping and crafting for the craft show I will be doing next week. Tina has been a little out of the craft circle of late and was getting the hang of it again. We have belly aches from all the laughing. Here we are with our daughters who so kindly made us some of our own crowns, just to prove we are the queens of craft. LOL!
Of course I wouldn’t let you go without seeing that art journal I promised you in the title…
I decided I wanted the chipboard cover to be my base. I love the simplicity of it…don’t you? The only ink used was on the feet of the owl. The rest is DSP and Rub-ons. Too cute!
Well I’m off to get ready for tonight.
Hey everyone! It’s Friday all ready, can you believe that?! I know I’m having difficulty thinking that. I’m also having difficulty believing that there is only 8 weeks exactly until Christmas. I have my daughters fairy Birthday party to organise yet. I have the cake and venue organised, but we need to invite some people to this shindig or it will be a little quiet at the party. Not too mention my daughter will be very upset. So today I think I will start designing a beautiful fairy invite for the 20 kids on her fairy list….LOL!
Anyway onto this weeks challenge-
A square sketch challenge! The last time I did one of these I decided next time I would do a scrapbook layout……well it’s next time and here is my creation-
I have not done one in a while, and I’m happy to say it has sparked my interest again. So you might see some more pages from me soon.
- Stamp Set- Baroque Motifs, Best Yet and A Rose is a Rose
- Cardstock- Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose DSP and Whisper White
- Ink- Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss
- Accessories- Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches, Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Buttons and Linen Thread
Don’t forget the rest of the DT-
I finally get my new phone today. My Nokia I have now is getting a bit old. I was going to get an iPhone but ended up deciding on the Blackberry Bold. It seems to have exactly what I need. Also I will be keeping my current number so contact details will not change. Guess I will be playing with that today as well as the fairy invites!
I just wanted to let all know about my new Demonstrator website. It is absolutely fabulous. It will have a calendar of my upcoming events, project ideas, and you can even join my team online. That is just awesome! You can also view all the current catalogues and check out current SU promotions. All my contact details are there and you can let me know if you would like to host a workshop in the comfort of your own home.
But do not despair I will be continuing this blog and updating it as usual.
Hey everyone! Friday night last week I held my first Stamp-a-Stack. It was very enjoyable and the girls had fun. But I did struggle designing the cards. Why? you ask! Well….it’s like this…..I cannot make a simple card, I always layer CS and add embellishments and try a different technique with every card. I find it quite hard to balance and make a simple card look….well, amazing! IYKWIM!
So this is what I came up with! I couldn’t help it…I used some ribbon…and brads and punches…..LOL! But I did have fun challenging myself. I think I succeeded!
Hey everyone! I thought I would show you some of the things I have been up to……and it’s all crafting.
I just love off the page stuff….don’t you? I just love the Christmas stocking. I think I will be making heaps of those.
I am making these for the upcoming craft show. I have done so many I have now run out of Sticky Strip. Look like I will be putting in another order…..LOL!
Hey everyone! You will not believe the week I’m having! It just hasn’t stopped. But in saying that at least I am busy…right?! Four kids just don’t seem to be enough……bring it on I say! I can take it. I’m tough! ………I’m kidding, PLEASE don’t bring on any more….I’m not sure of up and down at the moment. I won’t bore you with my itinerary but I can assure you I have to book in bathroom breaks….LOL!
Anyway onto this weeks challenge-
And of course my creation-
I have to admit the art journal has nothing to do with the bed scene….but I used the colours. Urban Garden DSP matches it beautifully, so I went in that direction.
- Stamp Set- Jumbo Outline Alphabet and Calendar Alphabet and Numbers
- Cardstock- Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Urban Garden DSP
- Ink- Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy
- Accessories- White Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Crimper, Craft Knife, Dimensionals, Cutter Kit and White Gel Pen
