This is the last of my Scrapbook Pages for a while. This is a traditional 12″ x 12″ page, however is mixed in with some project Life pages of my daughter’s trip to the USA with the State Schools Symphonic Wind Ensemble. This photo was taken at Sea World I wanted to highlight some of the colours in the photo. In the plant at the back of the photo is a beautiful pink flower, hence the use of Melon Mambo…. Read more »

This is the last of the cards from my October Card Class where the ladies concentrated on a technique. We used the Aqua Painters for all of the cards – 2 each of 3 designs. This one is just an alternate on one of the other cards they made. The image on this card was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black and then the Aqua Painters did the work with reinkers. This time we turned the image so it was facing… Read more »

Alright we don’t have snow here in Australia at Christmas time. It’s usually horrendously hot and humid and sometimes we get awful summer storms. However, I want you to shut your eyes (after reading this of course) and imagine this: “Lots of twinkling stars and the night sky is dark blue and the moonlight shows Santa in his sleigh riding through the night sky.” It’s possible, isn’t it? OK I’m just a big kid at heart or ‘kidult’ as my… Read more »

My Grandson absolutely loves Thomas The Tank Engine and all his fellow engines and characters in the show. He particularly loves the music and happily sings along and dances. It’s a joy to see and be a part of. His birthday was in June and I managed to get him a card with Thomas The Tank Engine on the front and I think that card has been carted all around the house ever since. This got me to thinking about… Read more »

I just love everything about our Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue this year. There are so many wonderful products we can use for Christmas and it’s definitely time to start preparing as it will be here before we know it. This is another of the cards the ladies made in my Christmas Card Class recently using the Embellished Ornaments Bundle, Work of Art and Sassy Salutations.  They made 2 of these cards and there were differences in all the cards which… Read more »

This is one of the four cards we made in my recent Christmas Card Class. The ladies made 2 each of 4 designs so went home with 8 completed cards. Some had a few bits to finish as it was a full on 2 hour class with no down time. The ladies did enjoy it. Reason For The Season is a Photopolymer Stamp set which has many different stamps and one is like the veins of a leaf. We inked… Read more »

I made some of these a while back and decided to use up some more of the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper and some beautiful Butterflies which I already had cut out. It’s amazing the number of bits and pieces you collect as ‘left-overs’ and the creations you can make with them. This is such a card and would do for many different occasions. I’ve made this one as a birthday card. I used my all time favourite Butterfly Stamp… Read more »

This is one of the projects made at the last Triple Treat Class which is held on the first Friday of each month at 7pm. Participants make 2 cards and a 3D item plus have some refreshments, a chat and a giggle. It’s always lots of fun. This is 2 Fry Boxes glued back to back with the Fun Flower Punch used to make an embellishment for either side of the box. I’ve added a Metal Rimmed Pearl for the… Read more »

Here’s another card from my Monthly Card Class held on the first Saturday of each month at 2pm. We concentrated on water colouring techniques this month and the ladies , whilst learning a lot and working outside their comfort zone, also enjoyed themselves. The feature on this card is the embossed background in Soft Sky using the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Folder. We cut the Whisper White card down so the image fitted nicely but leaving enough room to show… Read more »

Here’s another card using Watercolour Paper and Sweet Briar Rose which has been stamped with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder. This card features Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry with Wild Wasabi for the leaves and branches. The sentiment is from And Many More and is also stamped with Versamark and embossed with White Emboss Powder. The sentiment was made from the little piece which came out of the centre of the Wild Wasabi when run through the Big… Read more »
