Sunshine and Sprinkles Birthday Card

Hello everyone.
It's been a busy few weeks for birthdays, so there will be
a few posts for me to catch up on showing my creations.
My first post today is a card I made for a young lady and wanted to show off
some new items from the new Seasonal Catalogue.

I think the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP is sooooooo cute.
It's so virbrint and colourful, fit for any girls birthday.
As you can see I did alot of layering on this card, not
only with cardstock and DSP, but also including the
White Tea Lace Paper Doilies and Soda Pop Tops as well.
I hung from behind the Soda Pop Top a couple of little stamped image
"Happy Day" and Number #1 from the Ciao, Baby stamp set.
All the items used on this card can be found in the new Seasonal Catalogue
and the Sale-a Bration Catalogue also.
I hope this has started getting your creative juices going.
Until next time.

Oh Baby

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I am excited to share a couple of things with you today.
1. Friends of ours has just had their first baby and they had a baby girl.
2. This gave me the opportunity to play with my new goodies from the new Seasonal (not so mini)
catalogue to produce a card for them.

As they had a girl I thought I can get a way with using the new More Amore Speciality Papers as not only can it be used for Valentines cards, but I quite like it for a baby card.
The colour palet is Pool Party, Very Vanilla and Primrose Petals.
On the card I have a love heart in Very Vanilla and a tip if you don't have a love heart die cut or punch is you can use Fancy Flower punch instead.
You just slide your card stock into the punch to make a "V" shape and punch and you have created
an instant love heart.
Another cute new item is the Soda Pop Tops. For $6.95 you get 16 in total and 2 sizes.
Can't wait to get this sent off to the new proud parents.
If you wish for your own Catalogue or items you have seen here please drop
me a line on so I can place your order for you.
Thanks for stopping by.

Belated Christmas Card

Hello readers.!!
It has been awhile and like you I have been very busy.
Christmas and New Year has passed and it was enjoyable as it could be.
I'm now concentrating in entertaining the kids whilst they are on school holidays.
As time has flown by I missed showing you this card which was inspired by my lovely Upline
Marelle Taylor.

Marelle showed us how to make this delightful card at the Heart Felt Training day in Sydney and desperately wanted to have a go myself.
This is a great way to use up any scrap material you may have left over and turn it into something very homemade without the sewing (even better).
I gave these away to my childrens teachers and I was given lots of lovely comments, so thanks Marelle for your wonderful ideas.
Thanks for stopping by.

Card stock: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade and Real Red
Ink: Real Red
Stamp Set: Contempo Christmas
Other:Ornament Punch, Candlelight Christmas Fabric, 1/8"Taffeta Ribbon Old Olive
Petals-a-plenty Embossing Folder

Just a reminder that the Holiday Catalogue will be coming to an end on the 31st January.

So ensure to not miss out on something you had your eye and place your order with me today.

Secret Santa Gift Bag

Hello fellow readers!!!!!
Well I'm sure you're all in the thick of it with Christmas preparations being made
and shopping to do, so I hope you have managed to take time out of your busy schedule to have  a look and see what my latest creation has been.
Once a year our team of Demonstrators gather for a Christmas party,but with a difference.
We do a Secret Santa and decorate the gift however we see fit.
This year we were to decorate a gift bag with our most up to date Stampin' Up! items.
I've always wanted to make a Paper Bow and I think I managed it here.

The contents unfortunately were not photographed before bringing it to the party. ( Sorry, ran out of time)
The main aim to the bag and gift was, it was all reusable.
The Bow can come off and be used again on a gift you wish to give. The same goes for the gift bag itself. (I used the Snow Festival DSP for that).
The lovely Tulle you'll find a use for as well as the Antique brad.
Inside was a jar filled with Dolly Wooden pegs and I wrapped various ribbon on each and fastened them with heart shaped pins.
I also included mini sample cards and stuck brads, buttons and so on.
My recipiant was very happy with her gift and that makes it all worth it in the end.
Well I'll let you all get on and I'm glad you stopped by.
Don't forget to leave me a comment. I like your feed back.

Owl's It Going?

Well I don't know about you, but I want time to put it's breaks on
because I'm not ready for Christmas yet.
Since my last post lots of changes have been happening in my
life and craft has not been happening much.
I guess you can say my mojo has gone for the moment and I'm waiting for it's return.
This blog is to show and share with you my creations which I love to do.
I'm thinking about maybe starting one about a recent condition I've been diagnosed with
as that seems to be controlling my life more these days.
Don't get me wrong I will never give up what I love doing as a hobby,
but it will have to take second place for now.

Now back to what I have to share with you today.
I would like to show you a card I sent to a young lady who turned 12 this month and I wanted to use again the Owls Occasions, as he is so cute.
See what I mean? Very cute indeed holding onto his balloon.
You can do so much with this stamp set and I decided to stamp party hats everywhere, give him and
balloon and hover over the branch with leaves.
My colours on my card were Pool Party, So Saffron, Primrose Petal, Soft Suede and Gumball Green.
Well I hope you enjoyed today creation and I will try and get back soon with more.

new Snow Festival DSP from the new Christmas Catalogue.

Now I cannot take the credit for the card at the middle back. Not that you can see it at

Crazy About Lalaloopsy

Hello fellow readers and welcome back to my blog.
I am posting a card today that is not something
I would usually make, but once I heard that my dear friends daughter loves Lalaloopsy I just had to give it a go.
I personally think she turned out alright, what do you think?

She was made from circles mainly. The hair was drawn free hand and the rest were using SU's Circles #2 Big Shot Die Cut for the face, Sweet Buttons Embosslits for the eyes, 1/2 Circle punch for the cheeks and that's it.
The Owl is from the Owl Builder punch.
The title Celebrate is from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue this year and I embossed that in White.
So why don't you have a go.
Hope to post again soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
