Latte Girls Team Meeting This is the Make & Take I designed for the last Latte Girls Team Meeting. It uses the ‘So Very Much’ stamp set which is available FREE through Sale-A-Bration at the moment. Here’s what’s in the set: It’s a great set and even though the ‘Thank You’ is large, it has many possibilities. Stamp as I have above and cut the card accordingly Stamp in a light colour or as tone on tone as a background… Read more »

This gorgeous pink elephant is easy to achieve with some Versamark and Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad and a bit of Washi Tape. It’s easy to achieve, watch the video and see how. This elephant brings back some favourite childhood memories of going to the Zoo. Plus when I was in Asia I saw lots of elephants, however they weren’t as glamorous as this one. Here’s the card from the video. I think the Washi Tape just makes this… Read more »

  Have you seen this gorgeous elephant in the Occasions Catalogue? This is Part 1 of my series on Lucky Elephant stamp set. This one is done with Stampin’ Write Markers and I have a Video to show you how I did it. Isn’t he just gorgeous? He reminds me of the Elephant rides we used to have at Taronga Zoo way back when I was a child. It’s an easy technique and I think you’ll agree it looks good…. Read more »

  I am so excited to be apart of this International Blog Hop celebrating all things NEW in Sale-A-Bration. There’s a full list of participants at the end of this post. So, I decided to focus on products from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure with a few other products thrown in. Both my cards use the “So Very Much” stamp set, from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, which is available in clear and wood mount. This is a gorgeous stamp set with so many possibilities… Read more »

I am often asked about what should be in your Basic Tool Kit, so I decided to do a quick Video on what you should have when you go to a class or crop. These items will be very handy for whatever event you attend. If you have them ready, you can just pop them in your bag and go. All these items are available from Stampin’ Up! and you can order them from my Online Store. Paper trimmer Adhesives… Read more »

Today I have another technique using Watercolor Pencils and I hope you give it a try as you can achieve some really beautiful results. <> The pencil needs to be quite damp but not dripping wet. I ended up mounting these on the same colour as the pencil I used in the video and then adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the coloured piece and adhered that to the front of my card. I’ve used the same image to stamp on the… Read more »

Global Design Project 069 Colour Challenge This project is for the Global Design Project 069 Colour Challenge. Make sure you visit to see the inspiration provided by the design team and the other participants in the challenge. I CASed this from the Occasions Catalogue (page 50) and used it as part of the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop last Sunday. You can see the original at the bottom of this post. I had so many comments on it and requests… Read more »

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop where we aim to inspire you with some lovely projects created from Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure products. So, I have two shares for you today. Now whilst I’d love to claim these ideas were my own, I actually CASED the Catalogue and you’ll see this card on page 52 of the Occasions Catalogue. Wouldn’t this make just a gorgeous invitation or card for a special occasion such as a wedding or engagement? This… Read more »

I shared this card the other day but thought I’d share it with you again along with the Stampin’ Up! Video about this gorgeous paper. Now I’m not a great fan of colouring in – I failed at it in school. I make cards and memory albums as my ‘stress relief’. However can I say, this paper combined with Stampin’ Up!’s new Watercolor Pencils, is just wonderful. I chose to just colour small pieces of this paper as a card… Read more »
