It’s Saturday which means my post for the current Global Design Project #042 Sketch Challenge is ready. It’s been a bit difficult in terms of getting to my craft room to ‘play’, however I’m hoping I can get down there at least once a week. This week’s challenge was a sketch designed by the lovely Teneale Williams. I needed to use my phone to see this so my interpretation is a little different. I was also completing a Latte Girls Team Challenge… Read more »

This is just so exciting. As winner of the WWYS #67 I get to be guest designer for this challenge. You can see my card for WWYS Challenge #67 You’ve Got This. Now a lot has happened since then resulting surgery on my left ankle with plates and screws being inserted on both sides and me now being totally immobile. So my good friend Leonie Schroder came to the rescue and brought the stamp set and matching Designer Series Paper so… Read more »

I’m hoping to get back to most of my regular blogging now. I  will be sharing some cards I have made a while ago due to my current immobility circumstances. I’m hoping for a bit of a reprieve when I see the surgeon later in the week and perhaps a different cast on my left leg so I can hobble around a bit. It’s now 2 months since I first broke my ankle and the healing process now with plates… Read more »

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Blog Hop. Today we have some wonderful inspiration using Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper. Here’s what it looks like: Now I’m sure Leonie had some wonderful inspiration to share with you. Here is my card using just 2 sides of the DSP. My card uses 2 pieces of the Specialty DSP and the new Layering Circles Framelit Dies combined with Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies. This DSP is just wonderful and has so many possibilities. It… Read more »

Here’s today’s Freebie Friday card. It has no sentiment so it would be suitable for all types of occasions. It uses a Photopolymer Stamp Set from the current Occasions Catalogue and will be carried over to the new Annual Catalogue. I’ve used the co-ordinating punch, Blossom Bunch Punch which is currently bundled with the stamp set saving you 15%. It won’t be bundled in the new Annual Catalogue so my advice would be to buy it now and take advantage of… Read more »

Here’s my last card share for Mothers Day for 2016. Very similar to the one I shared before, just a different side of the Designer Series Paper. This card was actually chosen by my husband to mail to his mother who is 88. Just a hint when you’re doing cards like this, cut your shapes, whatever shape that may be, first and then very lightly mark the outline with a pencil on the card to be stamped on. Then you… Read more »

My blog posts will be a bit intermittent for the next few weeks due to an accidental fall I had on Tuesday last. I have fractured my left fibula in two places and will see an orthopaedic surgeon during the week to find out how long I’ll be out of action. I can’t, at present. make my way down all the stairs to my craft room. This card is made using some retirement products (see below for the link to… Read more »

I made a similar card to this for a challenge recently and had so many comments and questions about it, I decided to make another one with a video tutorial. Card base is 1/2 and A4 sheet of Basic Black Layer 1 is a piece of Very Vanilla which is 5.5″ x 4″ or 14.3cm x 10cm. Use Memento Black to stamp the sentiment in the lower left corner of this piece. Layer 2 is the Designer Series Paper –… Read more »

Another Saturday means it’s time I posted my card for the Global Design Project #031 | Theme Challenge. Now whilst this is coming to you I’m at Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage in Sydney and having lots of fun playing with products, getting the new Annual Catalogue and meeting and collaborating with lots of lovely Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around Australia. So with tis as the theme, I thought the most appropriate stamp set to use would be Awesomely Artistic. I just… Read more »
