Engagement Party Invites!

Hello everyone!

I just recently done up some Engagement Party invites for my sister’s partner’s sister…..did you get that?! LOL! So if my sister and her partner get married it will be my sisters ‘sister in-law’. That makes more sense.

I made a few designs for her to choose from. They all had a similar layout to the Mother’s Day card I made a while back.

Which one is your favourite?

The Elegant Eggplant and Confetti White  is the one that was chosen by the ‘sister in-law’, after a lot of debating. She loved the Calypso Coral one too (my favourite). But hey, they are all nice. lol!

Hey everyone!

What a week it has been!!! It has been a very busy one…..but also a great week. I held my catalogue Launch last night and we had an absolute blast! I have a very exciting weekend coming up too….but I will tell you more about that on Sunday evening. I’m such a tease!! LOL!

Well today is Inkspirations Challenge day, a colour one at that, and I have a fun non-traditional Christmas card for you. Have a look at the colours!

See not very Christmassy eh? But here is my creation

What do you think? I think I love it! I pulled out my Brayer for this one and used it for the second time ever! LOL! What do you think?

Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #29

Hey everyone!

It is Inkspiration time and this week Cindy is hosting. Cindy has also added a twist to the challenge and it is a good one. Unfortunately I cleaned out my stash early this year and gave everything to my daughter and friends. Whoopsy!! ……..BUT wait……. I thought instead I would go through my files and use a technique that I saved to my  ‘do it one day’ file. So I chose a technique that creates an accessory. Clever aren’t I?! I came across a paper flower tutorial that I saved in November last year. I found it on  Amy Waters  blog. These particular flowers have been around a while but Amy has a very good tutorial on how to make them. They are sooo easy but so effective. The perfect accessory! Amy makes the most gorgeous creations, so take the time to check out her blog.

The sketch-

So onto my card-

I just love all these pinks together, they look great together and compliment each other well….and of course what goes well with pink?? Kraft of course!For the Baroque Motif BG I stamped it in Versa Mark and then used the Stampin’ Pastels, Choc Chip and Pretty in Pink and coloured the image by ‘bouncing’ the dauber over the image. I love the subtle effect!

  • Stamp Set- Baroque Motifs, Best Yet, Frames with a Flourish
  • Cardstock- Kraft, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo
  • Ink- Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand, Versa Mark
  • Accessories- Stampin’ Pastels, Melon Mambo Ribbon, 1/2″ Circle punch, Circle Scissors Plus, Daubers, SAMJ

UStamp Hey Bigshot Project #2

Hey everyone!

My other UStamp project went live today on the Hey BigShot session! I liked this project quite a lot as it was quick and easy. Don’t we all love just quick and easy?? I know with my time restrictions on creating time limits my size of projects. This one took about 40 minutes to put together. With less decoration you can put it together much faster!

It is my Top Note Gift Wallet. Isn’t it cute??

If you would like to know how to make this go to UStamp and join. When you do you will be able to access a heap of projects specially designed for the Big Shot just like this one. There are also a heap of challenges with prizes. Not to mention all the chatting you will most likely get up to in the chat room! LOL! 

See you there!

Awesome UStamp Projects!

Hey everyone!

I thought I would pop in here today and show you all this gorgeous little Picnic Basket that Danielle Daws designed for the ‘Hey Big Shot’ session over at UStamp. This was my recreation.

I plan on placing sample jars of exotic jams inside and give them to the grandparents. Isn’t it just gorgeous?! Danielle has done a fabulous job don’t you think?! I cannot wait to create more of these!

If you would like to create cool projects like this one and heaps more, then head over to Dawn’s blog  to join UStamp.

Workshop Antics!

Hey everyone!

I held a workshop last Thursday night and I took photos!!! Can you believe it?! I have proof that people actually do attend my workshops. I just cannot believe I have not taken photos until now! Some of my objects were a little apprehensive about having their photo taken and sometimes hid behind pieces of cardstock or other people (waving at you Laura H) LOL!

So here is a pic of the girls and the project they liked making the most on the night.

I suppose you would like some close-ups of those fabulous projects!! LOL!

Here you go

As you can see the workshop was based around the Top Note die. The girls had heaps of fun and I think I have them all head over heals in love with Naturals Ivory! Hehe! I wonder how many of you I have drooling over this awesome CS??!

Well I have heaps of projects to get organised so I best be off to get them done!

JAI #10

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Mine is going quite well! I am just so excited that I have even stamped at all! LOL! Here is the current Just Add Ink  challenge. It is a colour challenge and I just couldn’t go past it. So soft and lovely!

I thought I would have another play with the bird punch as I wasn’t exactly happy with my last creation made with it! But…really when am I happy?!! LOL! Well I hope you like my creation

Rich and Crazy!

Hey everyone!

What a wet week it has been here! It is absolutely fabulous getting all this rain and will do wonderful things for our local farming community. But when we get more than normal rain fall here my yard floods. So anytime we need to go anywhere we have to go for a swim first to get to the horseless carriage! LOL! Yesterday it finally was dry enough to mow but towards the end it was raining again. But we kept on going just in case we didn’t get another chance.

I have another card to show you from the retreat. I took advantage of playing with sets that I don’t own while I was there, hence the SOCK MONKEY card. I challenged myself to use that card as it is a set that I am afraid to say I find to hard to use! But if you want to see some fabulous cards made with it, go to Karens blog! Karen does some awesome cards with that young fella and he has been nicknamed Hank. I don’t own the Crazy for Cupcakes set either and that is what I used on this card.

What do you think? I like the combo I have used here quite a lot. It is also a little sneak peek into one of the new colours we will get to play with from the new mini. I will talk about that a little bit later! The second colour is Apricot Appeal. It is one of those colours I don’t use very often. But you may have already noticed that! Well I best be off to do some creating. I will be having a late one with Theresa so hopefully will have something new to show soon.
