There is a whole card on the front of this pouch which is beautifully made using the Rose Wonder Bundle and some ink and daubers. Kay has used the Kraft Rope Trim from the Holiday Catalogue.

I had a great deal of fun creating these little Tassels to include in my Team Gifts and Roomie Gifts for On Stage Live a couple of weeks ago. I thought I’d share them with you today. Now whilst filming this Video, I realised the lighting isn’t great. So I do apologies and will try to rectify it soon. However, I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up the idea by watching the video today. Designer Series Paper 6″ x… Read more »

Welcome to another Tip Thursday and your tip this week is another use for the Envelope Punch Board. I promised you yesterday, I would share with you how I made the little Gift Box which isn’t so little really as it measures when finished 2 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ high so it will fit quite a bit in it. So this is the one I’m making today in the video. I’ve still used Candy Cane Lane Designer… Read more »

Last week I went to Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage Live in Brisbane. It was so much fun plus we learnt a lot too. We caught up with friends and made new acquaintances and received lots of free gifts. These are the gifts I made for my Krafty Owlz Team members who were able to make it – Linda, Kay and Jenny. Plus I had 2 roomies, so I made them each the same gift but in a different colour. I… Read more »

The video will show… Read more »
