Rectangle Stitched Framelits

Afternoon my lovelies!

Had a lovely visit with the older sister today and had some fun playing in the craft room together!  While Barb was here a parcel arrived containing the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits that I had ordered.  After Barb left I just had to have a play and here’s a card I came up with but you may want to get your sunglasses out as the beautiful new Grapefruit Grove Foil sheets are just dazzling in this pic!  The new Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick foil sheets are available only as a free item when you spend $90 during Saleabration!  So better get your order in to get this beautiful foil paper before it gets sold out!  I think its going to be very popular.

In this card I have also used the sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set which is bundled with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies on page 28 of the Occasions Catalogue and I have heat embossed it used the Grapefruit Grove embossing powder on page 202 of the annual catalogue.  If you purchase The Amazing Life bundle you save 10%.  The fact that the Rectangle Stitched Framelits have 13 dies is amazing.  I’m not going to count how many frames etc you could make with that.  All I can say is that it makes this set very economical and a must for any scrapbooker or card maker!  The sequins are from the sequin assortment on page 198 in the annual catalogue.   The ribbon down the sides is the beautiful new Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack also only available as a free item on page 7 of the Saleabration catalogue.

Hope you like today’s card.  The products used are listed below.  Don’t forget to ask any questions you may have.

Don’t forget about the Beginner’s Class on 5th March and the Technique Class on 19th March.  Call me to book your seat.  Cost is only $25 everything supplied.  However if you are a VIP member you would have got a voucher in your December Newsletter and this will allow you to pay only $10 for one of the classes.  Look forward to your phone call 0419721561.  Still seats available!

Hope you have a great day and cheers for now.

Wonderful Romance – Thinking of you!

Afternoon everyone,

If you haven’t checked out the 2019 Occasions Catalogue I think you had better take a look!  Check it out here on my blog site, just click on the link!  This stamp set and co-ordinating framelits called Wonderful Romance is just adorable and I am loving playing with it.

The floral design was stamped in versa mark and then gold heat embossed.  I then coloured in the florals using the stampin blends which makes colouring and shading so easy.  I also cut some filler flowers from  gold foil paper.  The background is Soft Sea Foam, one of my new fav colours, so soft and delicate.  It is embossed using the tufted embossing folder through the big shot.  The sentiment is from the stamp set and I have threaded gold glitter thread (discontinued) through the holes and tied in a bow at the side.   Im happy with the end product, hope you are too.  If you have any questions on how this was made, please feel free to message or email me.

The list of products used is below.  Don’t forget you can order any of these beautiful products on line or message me and I can order for you.

Catch of the Day

Hi everyone,

Bit hot here in Brissy today but the air con is on in the craft studio and I’m back in there playing with some of my new products.  Check out this bundle from the new Occasions Catalogue, its a great one for those difficult male cards!  The bundle is called Best Catch.

My husband is a fishing type of guy and not a mushy kind of guy so made this for his Valentine’s day card, yes I know getting in early but wanted to use the set!  Coloured the fish and the reeds using Stampin Blends on watercolour paper.  Copper embossing powder for the sentiment and just a black pen for the fishing line!  Easy peasy!

Hope you like today’s card.  Don’t forget to check out all the great fun stuff in the new catalogues!

Have a great day!

Sketch Challenge Scrapbook Page

Evening all,

Well we have had a busy weekend with grandies visiting and have loved every minute of it however I did get time on Saturday before they arrived to do this page.  The photo of Gary and I was taken at my nephew’s wedding in October and I was wanting to do something and when a lady from one of my FB pages I belong to had a sketch challenge I decided this was my opportunity.  This is the design sketch idea we were given.


When I do my scrapbooking, I look at the picture first and the colours and then I try to work in those colours in the layout.  I took the colours from the dress I was wearing and used Petal Pink, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy as the main colours.  I flicked Night of Navy and Calypso Coral inks with a tooth brush onto the back ground of the Petal Pink to add that little bit of texture to the paper.  The rest is just very simple.

I’m still trying to figure out the best way of photographing my pages but at this stage they are just sitting on the kitchen bench as a background!  MMMMmmm  will investigate this further!

Hope you like it, let me know what you think.



Another one for the Boys!

Afternoon all,

Well got my delivery of some of the goodies from the Occasions Catalogue.  The Geared Up Garage bundle is perfect for male cards and here’s the latest male card I came up with.  Check out those gears using the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets which are a freebie during Sale-a-bration when you spend $90!  Woohoo!!!   The inside of the card which I haven’t shown only as the battery on my phone was low says “You jump-start my heart” which is one of the stamps in the set.  The bundle is on page 43 of the Occasions Catalogue!  It’s an awesome set!! The little metal elements of keys and spanners make a cute little addition as well.  The little dots are from the cut outs from the gears.  The oil spills make an awesome background to any male card as well.  There is also matching DSP.  I have a few pictures to scrapbook and these gears and elements will be great to use in my scrapbooking.  Check it out!!!

Let me know what you think and if you would like to order the bundle is is $84.50 which includes the stamp set and the thinlet dies.  Don’t forget to put your order in here at my 24/7 safe and secure online shop!  Or give me a call to book a workshop and earn some of these great products for free!!!

Friendship Card

Hi there everyone,

How lucky am I to have such beautiful friends.  I hope you can all say the same.  Why not send them a card that you have made and let them know just how special they are!  Here’s one I made to get you inspired.

I have made a folded frame using a 4″ x 4″ piece of the Gingham Gala DSP  in the Balmy Blue,  folded it into quarters, then folded the corners to the centre, then folded the corners back.

The butterfly is fussy cut from the Botanical butterfly DSP only available as a free product during Sale-a-bration.  I used gold metallic thread for his antennae as these are just too hard to fussy cut!  The sentiment is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and is one of my favourites, the bundle is the best buy check it out on page 13 of the Occasions Catalogue!

gingham and butterfly friendship card inside

The inside is also stamped with a little butterfly from the same stamp set and a sentiment as well from that same stamp set.

Hope you like today’s card, would be interested to see what your thoughts are.

Check out these beautiful products on the links on this page in the new catalogues!  Any orders over $100 (during Sale-a-bration) will receive a free gift to the value of $25 from me to you!!
