Latest Creations

I have been busy making new cards with some of the new products from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

bazaar flower

I just love the simplicity of this card. It uses the  International Bazaar DSP, the new fan embossing folder, Daydream Medallion and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets and the new wooden buttons.

pumpkin duck

I love, love, love the set Storybook Friends and the duck is a particular favourite of mine. I have used the new Finishing Touches edgelit for the border, Perfect Pennants and the new Polka Parade DSP.

Birthday poppies

This card I made while on retreat a few weeks ago. The Pleasant Poppies set wasn’t one that I thought I would like but now that I have used it, it is definitely on my must buy list!

I hope you enjoy these cards. I hope to be back soon to show you more!

World Cardmaking Day

Every year on the first Saturday in October, I celebrate World Cardmaking Day with a charity event. It is a full on day of paper crafting and helping to raise some money for the Chicks in Pink. I am again holding a full day of fun and paper crafts on Saturday 6th October in the Music room at Victoria Point State School.

The day is divided into 2 sessions.

The first session (10am- 1pm)is dedicated to making 3D objects. I have lots of lovely projects planned and I know you are just going to have fun making them! Here’s a little sneak peak!



The second session is a 16 card Stamp-a-Stack where we will make 4 cards in 4 designs. Each card will be for a different occasion and you be able to replenish your card stocks. 


The cost of the day is $50 for both sessions or $30 for one session and all profits from the day will go to the Chicks in Pink- a breast cancer support group. I am passionate about helping women with breast cancer in memory of my Mum.

There will be lots of lucky door prizes and a huge raffle of Stampin’ Up! goodies so I hope you will come and join me. Please let  me know by Wednesday 3rd October so I can ensure a place for you.

I have been very busy lately playing with all my new toys so I thought I would share with you some of my creations.

These three cards were all created with using the new snowflake die which is found in the Holiday mini on page  14.

Now I am sure that you are looking at the flower at the end there and trying to work out how I did it! I have to say that I saw this flower on Mercedes blog and I knew I just had to give it a go! And I was really pleased with how it turned out!

If you  would like to see this die in real life or learn how to make these cards, contact me and we can organise a free in-home workshop for you and some of your friends.
