Why haven’t I been posting.......?

Slackness... that's really all I can say if I am completely honest........ pure and simple slackness.........

BUT I have been busy.....

Got a job in May – 5 days a week – bit of a shock to the system but it's nearly 3 months down the track now and I THINK I am used to it!

Went to Stampin' Up Convention in May

Crafted around a real MESS as my craft room was being built...... but if you have seen where I do my crafty thing you'll know that that is nothing new......!

And then all the usual things that go along with a house, hubby, 2 teenagers and 2 cats!

Enough complaining I hear you say.... show us a card! OK - here is one I made for one of the ladies at work to give to a family member who recently got married.......


I totally LOVE how Teneal Williams does the inside of her cards so I did the inside of this one.......


It's hard to see in the below photo, but there is actually a little pocket where you can put your gift of cheque or money ....


Hope to be back with some photos of my new craft room.


Thanks for dropping in!

Thank You’s

I haven't posted anything for quite a while, and unfortunately the thank you cards I am posting are for a sad time..........

Recently Kim's brother Jason passed away after losing a 4 year battle with cancer. I have made some cards for my mother-in-law to send to some of the special people in her life to says "thanks".... and I need around 16 for myself to send.

Here are 6 that I've made for my own use.....(I did two of each).....

This first one is probably very similar to many cards you may have seen floating around cyberspace.... using the Sale-a-bration Set "Punch Bunch" and the "2-step Owl Punch".

I've also used some brads and the 1 ¾" Circle and 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. The pattern paper is "Woodland Walk" and the cardstock is "Crumb Cake", "Very Vanilla" and "Chocolate Chip".


This card was made using "Inspired by Nature" and the free hostess set "After Thoughts". I used "Regal Rose", "Rich Razzleberry" and "Whisper White" cardstock. Ink colours used are "Old Olive", "Rich Razzleberry", "Regal Rose" and "So Saffron". I didn't use the ink pads... I used my Markers so I could colour the flower image in different colours, and could colour only part of the greeting stamp (the greeting stamp actually says "Thanks I love being spoiled")


For this card I have used the "Every Moment" stamp set, inked in "Stazon" and then watercoloured in "Perfect Plum", "Concord Crush", "So Saffron" and "Soft Suede" using my ink pads. The card stock is "Perfect Plum" and "Concord Crush", and I've stamped on "Whisper White". The pattern paper is the "In Colour Pattern Stack" and Concord Crush Ribbon.

I've still got more to make, so hopefully I'll get these made and up here in the next few days.... oh – and I have picture of my renovation – MY CRAFT ROOM – to show you!

Til next time....



PS – Marlene – none of these are the card I'll be giving YOU – I'll keep that one (& Jodie's, Joy's and Tahnee's) a secret......!

Vintage Butterfly

Here is another 3 x 3 card I've made....... using the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.

I rolled the wheel in Elegant Eggplant, and used Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Whisper White Cardstock.

You can't see it very well in the photo but I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on the Butterfly. I mixed it with Rubbing Alcohol to make a "spray". The Colour Catcher came in very handy when spraying the butterfly!

I've also put a few Rhinestones on the butterfly.

Till next time.

A Thoughtful Thanks

I whipped up these little thank you cards for some lovely ladies who placed orders at a recent workshop.

The cards came together quite quickly and very easily.

Here's what I used:

Stamps: It's the Thought (Hostess Level 1) & Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Poppy Parade & Whisper White
Ink: Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, Baja Breeze & StazOn
Other: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Aquapainters, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (used with the Big Shot), Dimensionals

I think they're cute! Do you?

The "It's the Thought" stamp set and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder are from the current Summer Mini which ends on 31st March 2011. And don't forget that Sale-a-bration ends on 31st March as well. 

Now is a great time to replenish your stampin' supplies as EVERYONE has the opportunity to earn FREE STAMP SETS during Sale-a-bration.

Thanks for dropping in....

"Style" with a bit of "Thought"

I recently made this card for my mum. The floral image is from Elements of Style and the greeting from Thoughts and Prayers.

Colours used are Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery with a bit of Early Expresso thrown in.


As you can see from the second photo I also stamped the inside of the card with the floral image.

Til next time.......Happy Stampin'

I’m Back....

Well finally I have got around to posting on my blog. Slack I know least I'm back.......

Here are a couple of cards I've made with one of my newer stamp sets - "Morning Cup". I love this set (yet another one!) and I think I'm going to have to get the coordinating wheel.

The first card is very simple.....

And for this one I masked the cup so I could place the teabag in the cup.

Sorry about the photographing - they are on a bit of a slant. Anyways....hope you like them....

Happy Stampin'
