Hi all,

We made this card on Wednesday at my weekly class. It is such a nice cheery card.

I used Summer Sun and Basic Black for the colors. I also used A Beautiful Thing stamp set. I bought this set quite some time ago and have not used it for ages!!!! It was so nice to brea it out. as well as using the flower image in the middle of the card I stamped the flower image all over the Summer Sun pieces too.
The flower is made using the Scallop Circle punch. You punch the DSP (Good Morning Sunshine here) out and then cut them in half and make them into cones. Then you arrange the cones into the flower shape and then your done!!
So simple yet so effective!!!
Thanks for looking.

Hi there,
I promised myself today that I would blog and what better way to do it than to do a Mojo Monday sketch?
I have been busy lately looking after my 6yr old daughter who has just had her tonsils removed and she has been qutie time consuming. My husband is home today so I thought I would duck into my office and quickly whip something up.
So here it is:
I have used the Live Like You Mean It and the Petal Pizzazz Set. Both are very cool sets to use. The Live You Mean It set is one of the new level 1 hostess sets.
The colors used are Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray. The Designer Paper is the new Tea Party paper and I have also used the Soft Subtles brads for the middle of the flowers.
I think that the colors work really well for this card, what do you think?
Have a good day!!

I thought I would show you some of my mail!!! It really brought home to me that getting something in the mail (other than bills of course) is such a thrill. No matter what it is, if it is a card letting someone know that you are thinking of them or a little gift to make someone's day it is bound to make someone smile!!

This pressie was sent to me by one of my teammates Michelle. Isn't it so cute? Michelle used the Good Egg set and then coloured in the chicken with markers.

Thanks for the pressie Michelle it's very cool.

What I've been up to.

Hi everyone,

Thought I had better blog because I haven't been on for a wee while. Life has been very busy as always!!

Anyway here is just some of the things that I have been up to:

This card is a triangle fold card. It's very cute!! I made this one using Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink and Chocolate Chip card. I used Berry Bliss Designer Paper and a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle. The stamps used are from the Priceless set and the Sincere Salutations set.
This is my second card:

It was made using the Live the Dream stamp set which is in the current mini catalogue and using Pumpkin pie, Old Olive and Basic Black as the colors.
Don't forget that the mini catalogue is due to expire on the 31st of March and so is the main catalogue. Of course a new main catalogue is releasing on the 1st of April (YAY!!!). There is so much cool stuff in the new catalogue so if you would like to pre order a catalogue now contact me now.
Bye for now

I have been trying to sit down a do a sketch for ages now (or at least that's how it seems!!), so finally I managed to do it.

Can't really say that I think too much of the card but you know, someone will probably like it!!

The papers I used wes retired paper that I had around the place and the stamp sets were Baroque Motifs and the Wonderful Words. Inks used were Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi.

Catch you soon.


I have recieved a bog award. One of my fellow team members Denise gave it to me. Thanks Denise!!

Anyway I have to name five things that I am addicted to. So here they are:

1) My family.

2) Cardmaking abd scrapbooking.

3) Reading.

4) Chocolate (who isn't!!!).

5) My job (have to be addicted to it. I help look after 40 kids afterschool for love!!).

And I also need to nominate five other blogs.

All of these ladies have great blogs and I visit them often.
Bye for now.

Mojo Monday Challenge 74

Here's my latest challenge. I tried a new challenge this time and had alot of fun doing it. It is soooo totally different from what I had first thoguht of!!! At first I was going to make a card but when that just didn't come together I sat back and looked at it again. Then the thought came to me that it would work really well as a scrapbook page. And this is what I came up with.

This uses the Secret Garden Scrappin' Kit and once again this makes scrapping a breeze. As soon as I looked at the cardstock and papers I knew exactly what photo I had to scrap.
Hope you like it.

Hi again,

Just a quick post to show you my K Werner Color Challenge entry.

This weeks colors were More Mustard, Really Rust, Kiwi Kiss (I substituted for Old Olive) and Whisper White. I found this a really nice combo to use.
The stamps used was the Baroque Motifs set which is such a versatile set. Also this set is one of the sets that Stampin' Up! have for their Bushfire Appeal. So if you buy this set Stampin' Up will donate half of the price to the Australian Bushfire Appeal. Very cool. Contact me if you would like to buy a set.
Catch you soon.


Hi All,

This past Wednesday I had a class for Spinner cards. These are ultra cool cards that the kids especially love. My two kids want to learn how to make them because they think they are so cool. Anyway here are the pics of them:

This card was made in Going Gray, Pixie Pink, Green Galore and Almost Amythest. In this particular card the butterfly actually flys around the flowers in an arc, very cool!!!

This card was mad in Close to Cocoa, Whisper White and just a touch of Ruby Red. And on this card the heart spins from side to side.

I had a lot of fun making both the cards and I think that the ladies that come to my class really enjoyed making them to.

Let me know what you think.

Wow!! Two challenges in one day. I have been very lucky in the fact that it has been a long weekend here in NZ and I have been able to spend alot of time creating.

I found this sketch on my upline Jacque's website You should check out her site she makes such awesome stuff!!

Anyway here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I thought that with Valentines Day coming up it would be cool to finally scrap some of our wedding photos. We were only married 8 years ago but hey, at least it's being done now!!
I used the Secret Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit. These kits are so awesome because they have basically everything to make cards and scrapbook pages and then some.
Let me know what you think.



Well here is my very first K Werner Color Challenge.
The colors used are More Mustard, So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Old Olive and Whisper White.
These are not normally colors that I would have put together, but they do work really well together.

Catch up soon.

Here's my latest card. Not that fancy but I like it.

It is made using Brilliant Blue, Whisper White and Basic Gray. It uses the Bud Basics stamp set which has to be my all time favourite set. Normally this is a two step stampin' set but with this card I have just used the outline stamps.

Let me know what you think.

I just made this card and I completely love it!!! The Live your Dream stamp set is fast becoming one of my favourites!!!

This is such a cool card because of the fold that it uses. It has two flaps that open out to the middle of the card rather than the traditional opening that you would normally have.

To add color to the card I have used Stampin' Pastels and a cotton bud, so easy but yet so effective. The colours used are Not Quite Navy, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa and just a touch of Old Olive.

The stamp set used is the Live the Dream set and is found in Stampin' Up's mini catalogue. It's such a versatile set.

Thanks for visting

Hi all, welcome to my blog. My name is Kirsty Walley and I am an Independant Demonstrator for Stampin' Up!. I love spending time creating cards and scrapbook pages. I decide to put some of my creations onto a blog and share my passion with you.
I thought I would start out by showing you what we did at my last class that I held this Wednesday. We made a chocolate holder that holds eight little bars of chocolate.

This holder uses just one piece of A4 cardstock and a page of Designer Paper. Using the Designer Paper to wrap the chocolate is a great way to co-ordinate the chocolates with the whole package. I gave a few of these out for Christmas and everybdy loved them. They are quick and easy to make and can be used for any occasion.

Tell me what you think of the holders.

Thanks for stopping by and I will catch up soon.
