Easy Peasey!!

Sepia tones

Good morning all,

well I can’t take credit for this design but just had to have a go at it.  I recently did a card that involved the bleaching technique but not using bleach.  Well this card is using bleach to highlight flowers in sepia tones.  Thanks to Gail Ellis and Sandi McIver for their inspirations to try this out.

Love the effects in this card.  Check out their tutorial on YouTube to see how this is achieved.  I used the Very Versailles and Painted Poppies Stamp sets for mine.

Would love to know what you think!
Cheers for now.



Hello my lovelies!

Hope this finds you all well.  How exciting, the lovely Jeremy and Ally at Roundtable Coffee asked if I would like to do fortnightly coffee and card classes, yes I am retired but hey this is so much fun so why not!  I jumped at the chance!  So starting on 25th Feb I will be holding two classes a month at Roundtable Coffee.  So it works out the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, same time, same price just double the monthly fun!

Hope that you can come join us and if you can’t make it one week you always have a second chance.

Bookings are essential to me at least two days prior to the class on 0419721561.  Attending any of my classes gives you automatic entry into the quarterly draw to win a beautiful stamp set and card kit worth over $70 just by attending a class.

I still have a couple of vacancies for the inaugural scrapbooking class on Saturday 22nd Feb if anyone is interested.  Please call to book in.

I had a lovely one on one class the other day with the gorgeous Naomi and her carer where we made a beautiful card!  We didn’t add a sentiment as we werent sure who she would give it to so we left it blank.  Here’s the card.  Its a simple card as Naomi had never done stamping before.

A quick post today must get prepping for Saturday’s scrapbooking class which I am really looking forward to.

Keep on Stampin and Scrappin and generally keep on having fun no matter what you are up to!

Today’s Coffee and Card Class

Had a great morning this morning so much so forgot to take any pictures!  Anyhooooo here’s the card we made and all the lovelies who attended had so much fun learning new techniques!

We used the stamparatus to position the tulip and leaf from the punch and used Terracotta Tile and Pineapple punch to colour the tulips.  The background is stamped using the leaf stamp from Very  Versailles in old olive.  Let’s know what you think of the card!

Always a fun morning, so much so that I will now be running them fortnightly.  Next class will be in two weeks time on Tuesday morning 25th February, bookings essential to me on 0419721561.  Look forward to seeing you.

cheers for now

Tasteful Backgrounds meet See A Silhouette DSP


Good morning all my lovely supporters!  What a beautiful rainy day here in Brisbane, just what we need, a good soaking of rain.  Also a great day to be in the craft room!

I ordered the Tasteful backgrounds when I first saw them when the annual came out last year and haven’t used them until now.  Don’t know why as they are just so beautiful.


I embossed the front using the Subtle textures embossing folder. Then I used the See a Sihouette DSP which is set behind the background cut out.  The white flowers are made using the cut outs left on the big shot from the background die.  Waste not want not!  The rhinestones are the gorgeous new champagne rhinestones which go with anything!  A must have in any crafters stash! The sentiment is from the beautiful Timeless Tulips, embossed using copper embossing powder and has been punched out using the Classic Label lunch – a very versatile punch.

I will list all the products at the bottom as this will make it easier to order any of these products.  To shop just click on the Show Now button to take you to my safe and secure online shop!  Easy Peasy!

Don’t forget about  the scrapbooking class on Saturday 22nd February commencing at 10am nearly booked out only a couple of spots left!  Call me to book in on 0419721561.  Cost is $20 includes refreshments!  To be held here at Wynning Creations in Bracken Ridge!

Ok that’s a wrap from me for today, going to do a bit of scrapping now.  Hope you all have wonderful day.  Until next time, keep on Stampin!



Hello my Lovelies!

Living in Brisbane is close to the tropics isn’t it!! Well you would think I was in Hawaii today in my craft room using this gorgeous new stamp set call Timeless Tropical with the matching dies called In The Tropics (of course)!

The background is the co-ordinating DSP. All these products are available in the new mini catalogue. You can view this catty here on my blog – just click the link!

Oh by the way, the real hibiscus flowers are from our garden -credit to my personal gardener (my darling beloved) for his devotion to our garden. I can not take credit for anything that grows in soil!!!

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN PROJECT KIT – Make your very own special advent calender!

Welcome to the weekend all!!

The rain is coming down here today and it is beautiful to see and hear.  A little fur baby isn’t happy though and doesn’t like storms so Tilly is hiding in our wardrobe!   I hope the drought ravaged areas are getting some.  With the rain outside what better time to spend in the craft room.  Before we left overseas I ordered the beautiful Christmas Countdown project kit and have finally had time to make it up.  Such a fantastic project to make yourself as the kit comes with everything you will need.  What fun it would be to open a drawer every day in December and find a little treat!  Great for a family activity together as well.  I used some stamps that I already had but no stamping required if you down’t want to as the kit has everything you need (except the glue) but there are some lovely stick on decorations as well.  Check it out on page 38 of the Holiday catalogue.

If you purchase the kit, I will provide a free class (cost of refreshments only $5) where you can put it altogether plus a fun morning or afternoon of crafting.  If you wish to stamp anything I will also supply stamps and inks to use at the class.   Call me to place your order and book the class ASAP.  Or order the kit at my 24/7 online shop and call or message me to book a suitable time for the class.  Call 0419721561.

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay in this Coffee and Card Class post but there was an update on my phone and the photos were saved in a different format!!   I will say no more but thank my husband for being my IT Department and finally got them sorted!   Crisis averted!!

So the card we made on Tuesday was a Christmas card using the Brightly Gleaming DSP as mentioned in my previous blog post today.  This is a good all round DSP not just for Christmas.  Check it out in the Holiday Catalogue.

Here’s the card

Thank you again for all the lovelies who came along for a fun morning yet again.  Petra, Dell, Judy, Gloria, Helen, Barb and Chris.   Coffee and Card Classes are held the second Tuesday of each month at 9.30am Rountable Coffee Gawain Road Bracken Ridge.  Cost of the class is $5 – purchase your own coffee and come and make a card and join in the fun!  Bookings essential please call Beth o 0419721561.


Let me know a type of card you would like to see me make so I can make it and post it here. I will select two cards – I will need the occasion and a colour scheme of your choice – I will accept the challenge as I love a challenge!!!  And  go…..

Well another short blog post but hey got two out in one day!  Now I’m off to do a bit of work in the garden after the beautiful bit of rain we have had.  Until next time, keep on crafting.
