G’Day Everyone!

Hope this finds you all well.  Most of you have all left the big smoke for the New Year holiday but we are here at home just Gary and I and Tilly.  We’ve packed all the Chrissy decorations away for another year, Gary’s in the garden, but you will never guess where I am!  Yes you did guess right!  I am in the craft room with the air con on the music blaring away and my fingers are getting nice and colourful with all the stamping.  But boy am I having fun!   I made my first stop motion video today – yes me the technophobe!!!  No IT Department in sight either!   I have posted it here for you to check out some of the projects I have been working on as well as some of the beautiful new products coming in January in the 2019 Occasions catalogue and Saleabration!.

Hope you like the very short video but most of all I hope you like the products I have shown you.   I would love for you to come to a class or hold a workshop in the new year.  Even if its a virtual one!  (You will need to contact me for further details on this!).

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and let me know what you think!


Cheers for now!


Beauty Abounds!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas as much as we did.  So much fun was had with all our grandchildren and all the family.  Now it is a little quiet I can share with you the birthday card I made for someone very special in our lives.

This card is made using the Beauty Abounds bundle available as of January in the new Occasions catalogue.  I love butterflies and dragonflies and saw this set and knew I had to have it.  The bundle comes with the Beauty Abounds Stamp set and Butterfly Beauty thinlets in the new cling style stamps.  If you buy the bundle it works out 10% cheaper and as the bundle is $97.00 you automatically qualify for a free item from the Saleabration catalogue.  OMG its virtually two items, get one free, how good is that.  Of course not until January.  So start making your list and ensure you add this to the top of it!

The back ground of the stamp is using the Basket Weave embossing folder available from the Annual Catalogue.  Its a great versatile folder to have only $16 on page 222 of the AC.

Below are all the products used.  If you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to ask!  Hope you like the card!

The Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration will be starting in the New Year with some very exciting products coming.   Hope you can share the excitement with me by coming to a class or holding a workshop.  Call me to book on 0419721561.

Have a great day!

Another Scrapbook Page finished

Good Saturday morning to you all!

Just wanted to show you my latest scrapbook page.  I started this yesterday and had no idea what I was going to do with this cute little photo of our youngest grandchild Isaac.  But didn’t want anything flowery as the colours in the photo are dark but wanted something a little quirky.  So this is what I did.

He is such a cutie.  Now to do the other three grandchildren’s pages!  Just a warning, there will be photos!

Most of the products are Stampin Up but I have used some Tim Holz stencils for the background and some wooden embellishments.  The spotted DSP is retired from Stampin Up and I really need to use it up.  I used the green to tie in with the little bit of green on his T-shirt.

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions on how I did any of this please message or email me!  Or just leave a comment!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to share with you all what the lovely ladies at yesterday’s Coffee and Card class made.  How cute and easy is this card.  We had so much fun.   The products used are listed below.  The Sentiment is from the Quilted Christmas set which has now retired but you could use any sentiment you wish.  Also the frame is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty  paper which is available in the annual catalogue.  I love this paper it is so versatile and has some great frames, borders and backgrounds.  Check it out if you haven’t already its on page 189 of the annual catalogue.  Order number is 146907.

The classes start up again in February and will now be held on the second TUESDAY of each month commencing at 9.30am.  Always at Round Table Coffee on Gawain Road Bracken Ridge.  The coffee is great and I recommend the Banana Bread  Yummy!

Cost of the class is only $5 everything included (apart from your coffee).

If you like to start coming along to the classes, bookings are essential as I need to prep for the class and let Jeremy and Ally know how many tables to put aside for us.  Please call me on 0419721561 if you would like to book in.

The first class for 2019 will be on February Tuesday 12th.  Would love for you to come and join in the fun!!

Would love to know what you think of the card!  We had fun making it!

Hope you have an amazing day and until next time!

Big Shot embossing mats WOW!!

Good afternoon everyone,

Hope this finds you all well.  I’ve been busy in the craft room trying to get my Christmas cards finished still a work in progress.

I have been a little hesitant about using the new embossing mats but now that I have, I don’t think I can put them down!  How versatile are these little beauties!  All your framelits and thinlets can now become both embossed and cut!  Doubling the effects on your projects.  Check out this card I did using the Peaceful Poinsettia thinlets.  I hope you can see from the photo that it has embossed the image instead of just cutting it out.  I have then used the outline thinlet to actually cut the entire flower out,  I did it on whisper white cardstock but I then coloured it using my cherry cobler stampin blends for a shaded look.  You could just use Cherry Cobler or any colour cardstock.  The foliage is old olive cardstock but cut out using the sprig punch.  The background is the tufted embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue. The card base is Very Vanilla.  The sprig punch and the Peaceful Poinsettia are only available until 2nd January to if you would like to order these products, you had better be quick.  I also used the metallic gold thread and a strip of DSP across the middle of the card.

If you would like more information on how to use the embossing mats, please email or call me at any time!  or phone 0419721561.

Don’t forget to check out the End of Year Closeout for some great bargains.  Just click on on the shop on line button here on my blog site!



Hope you like today’s card.  I was so impressed about how the embossing mats work!  They are available in the annual catalogue as well.

Hope you have a great day.

Until next time!
