I just held my retirement workshop yesterday and I have one of the cards to share. I used my most favourite stamp set that is retiring from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue this year, Fine Feathers. I definitely didn’t get enough use of this set, so I might just hang onto it for hobby use.
There is a lot going on on this card, but I think well worth it. After creating a circle mask with the circle framelits, I stamped the Hardwood background, followed by gold embossing the feathers. I sponged with Crumb Cake ink and then splattered the background with Calypso Coral and Whipser White.
The sentiment piece consists of Burlap ribbon, Modern Medley DSP, paper doily, Very Vintage Designer Buttons, Vellum clear embossed stamped feathers, Linen Thread, the Oh, Hello stamp set, punched with the decorative label. All this on the base of Naturals White card stock. I told you there is a lot going on, right?!
I love how this one turned out. I must say there are few of its sisters sitting in the bin all crumpled up. We won’t go there……all I’ll say is I’m rusty.
The girls enjoyed making this one, which was good news. I love working them hard. LOL!
My youngest boy Darcy had his 7th Birthday Party a few weeks ago and I thought I would share some photos of the day.
The only food missing was the hot food. Cheerios, party pies and sausage rolls. As you can see we kept with a colour theme. Blue, Green, Yellow and Red. With the Party invites I used purple for the girls. Here are the invites
The back of the invite was a free download I found. Unfortunately I cannot find the link at this moment. When I do I will update it here. All the other Lego printables, like the cupcake toppers and banners, were purchased from a store on ETSY. You purchase the file, download and then print what you want to use. Super Easy!
They loved the photo booth. I own a Polaroid camera and everyone got to take home their own photo booth pic. The downloadable also included masks, glasses, moustaches and bow ties to use with the photo booth.

One of the party games. They had to find the hidden Lego piece in one of these balloons. They were given a tack each and popped them like crazy. Other games included the Tallest building built with Lego in 15 seconds, the best colouring in of a Lego figure in one minute and the piñata! We called ours a pullata! We made our own from the directions we found HERE. Ours had a twist though. David (my hubby) decided we needed more trap doors holding more lollies so that more kids had a go at getting the lollies and so the lollies weren’t released after the first pull! LOL. His creation took several days to create and it was awesome. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos, so I have nothing to share, but I did tell hubby to keep it so we could use it again.
I made the cake with Vanilla cake mix and coloured the layers to suit the colour theme. It was heaps of fun to create and super easy!
Well I hope you liked out little party and if you have any questions please just ask.
I have been meaning to get this post up for a while now, and I’m so glad I found time today to do it. I had a workshop a couple of weeks ago with the special request of creating a wedding card. The only set I have in my many, many stamp sets suitable for a wedding card is This Day Forward. I loved this set from first laying eyes on it.
As usual though the set had not yet seen ink! LOL……..until now that is. There was a beautiful box sample in the catalogue using this set and I decided to turn the same creation into a card. This is what I came up with.
A very simple but elegant design. I loved it.
I couldn’t stop there though, I decided this card needed a companion. I pulled out the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and went from there.
I was on Pinterest and found this lovely design by Stampin’ Club. It is simply gorgeous and thought it complimented the card well.
We also created one more card, a very easy card. I love those. I CASE’ed this card from somewhere. I thought it was Pinterest, but it wasn’t on my board, so now I’m not so sure. If you know who created this card please let me know so I can link them. Thanks! The original had a bigger butterfly stamp on it. That stamp was from the Best of 25yrs stamp promotion and the set was called the Best of Butterflies.
EDIT TO ADD- The original has been found, thank you very much Corinna Buchan. Melissa Davies from RubberFUNatics is the original design I CASE’d. Go check it out.
So as you can see we had lots of fun and I cannot wait to share the next workshop with you.
It has been quite a while since my lat post, but I have some exciting news to share. Most of you would probably already have heard about the new product Stampin’ Up! have added to their new annual catalogue this year, but for my followers who haven’t……drumroll please,
I have been a keen Project Lifer for close to two years now, and I cannot express enough how much I love this form of scrapbooking. As you are aware from my “About Me” description in the side bar. I am very, very, very behind in my scrapbooking, but since starting Project Life I have actually managed to keep up with all my photos with this easy to use, easy to decorate system.
Here is a sneak peek of one of the kits,
There are of course matching accessories and photopolymer stamps, with of course the tools required to create pages, including pocket pages, dies, journaling pens and a corner punch.
I will be starting Project Life classes from home, sharing my passion and love of my favourite product, Stampin’ Up! If you would like to come along and create your own Project Life page then contact me to find out dates for upcoming workshops in July. Contact details are in my sidebar, you can choose to call or email me.
