Hi again,

I thought I would share the gift set that I showed my ladies how to make this morning. This is my very first paper bag purse and I have discovered that they are extremely fun to make. This one is made with Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence card and the Cottage Wall Designer Paper from the current mini catalogue. The little bird was made using the Extra-Large Two-Step Bird Punch also from the mini catalogue. The stamp set used was the Best Yet set which is a Level 1 hostess gift.
If you like the look of this project and would like to learn how to make it contact me today and book a class.

Thanks for looking.

This cute little box I made for my entry into this weeks NZSU Challenge. There is a link on NZSU site ( for a tutorial on how to make the box. It is so quick and so super easy to make.

I used Ruby Red for the base and embellished it with Holiday Treasures Designer Paper and Boho Blossoms punch and then I made a flower out of a Scallop Punch punchouts.

Thanks for looking.

On Saturday I had a team training and as part of the day we all make cards so that we can swap them with other team members. This is the card I made:

The colors that I have used are Basic Black and the all new Melon Mambo. The stamps are from the new Vintage Vogue set.

Both the Melon Mambo and the Vintage Vogue stamp set have just been released in the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue which is jam packed full of amazing goodies. If you would like to receive a copy of the mini catalogue contact me at: and I will send you one out.

I will post some of the cards that I got in exchange for my card in the next few days.

Thanks for looking.

Hello again,

I have just finished making a cute little Easel Card Drawer and thought that I should show it to you.

The little 3"x3" cards fit inside the drawer. Such an adorable set for a present for someone special.
The stamp set that I used is a new set called Vintage Vogue available on 1st April in our new mini catalogue. The base of the box and cards is also another new product, a color called Soft Suede. I paired them up with Really Rust and Very Vanilla and some retired Outlaw Designer Paper and Voila!!!
I just love everything about this project and would love to show you how to make it. Just contact me and we can get together.

Thanks for looking.

Recently one of my friends came and asked me to make some invites for his wife's birthday. It is going to be formal affair so I thought that the invitations should have a formal feel too. I knew that I wanted to use the Baroque Motifs set (it just happens to be my favourite!!). I think that the large flourish stamp is just gorgeous and so elegant. So I did a bit of web surfing to get some inspiration and this is what I found.

I would love to say that this is my design but alas, it isn't. The stamper who made this is called HappiLeaSatampin' from Splitcoast Stampers. She made her card for a 25th wedding anniversary invite, but it was just perfect for what I wanted it for. The photos really don't do it any justice.

The colours used are: Basic Black, Whisper White and Brushed Silver. I have embossed he front panels with Silver embossing powder and then used the Five Petal Flower punch to make the embellishment.

Thanks for looking.

Hi all,

I thought I would share this little card with you. I cased it off a card that I saw while I was web surfing one day. Can't remember where I saw it though (sorry to whoever it belongs to!!).

This is one of those cards that look stunning with very little work at all. It is also great for using up those scraps that are always lying around the craft room.

The colours used were Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette. The only Stampin' Pad used was Basic Black.

Thanks for looking.

This post has nothing to do with Stampin' Up! but I thought I would share these with you. After school I look after 3 extra children as well as my own two and on a Thursday my Mum comes over and does craft projects with them. Today we made aliens and fairies out of terracotta pots and pipe cleaners and a whole heap of glitter.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed making these. I thought that they all did a fantastic job. What do you think?

Today I thought I would show you a sweet little bag and card that any girl is bound to love. I found the tutorial by Dawn Griffiths on YouTube and thought it was too cute to pass up having a play. :)

This set is made out of Real Red, Green Galore, Basic Black and Whisper White. The only ink used is Basic Black. All the dots are made using a pencil that has an eraser on the end and just inking up the eraser and randomly dotting over the Real Red cardstock (so simple, yet so effective). The lady bug itself is made out of three scallop circles and a 1 14/" circle and of course the Scalloped Edge Punch was used on the Green Galore.

This is such a cool set and so easy to make. If you want to learn to make this I would love to show you how.

Thanks for looking.

A little while ago I taught the ladies who attend my class how to make this cute notecard set. It consists of a little box with handle and some 3" x 3" note cards. This is such an easy project to make but so effective.

The stamp set used is Pocket Shilouettes which is a wonderful set and a great price at $39.95.
This box is made out of Regal Rose, Rose Red and Very Vanilla cardstock. These colors go wonderfully well together and I think they make a lovely gift for someone.

Let me know what you think, I love to get feedback.
