Hostess Gift

I had a chance today to do the watering can tutorial. This was one of jayne mercers girls night in challenges. It is just so sweet in person, sorry about the bad photos.

I decided to used this as a hostess gift for my weekend workshop. I have rolled a meter of some of my fovourate ribbons and made holes in the side with the slot punch. It makes a lovely thank you gift for a hostess.
If you would like a gift like this one and free stamp sets contact me to organise a workshop.

The tutorial to make one of the sweet litle watering cans can be found here.

Thanks for looking.

Challenge Four

Sorry I missed Challenge three it is definitely worth a look here. I will be giving this ago another day.

Challenge four was a sketch challenge. The sketch an be found HERE. The only requirement was to make the card predominantly pink.

I have used Echo of kindness stamp set with rose red ink, heat & stick powder and dazzling diamonds. Bella rose DSP, pink pirouette, choc chip and whisper white card. The title is from short and sweet stamp set punched from large oval and scalloped oval. I have embellished with jumbo eyelets.

Thanks to Jayne for some amazing inspiration. I was ment to be prepairing for a workshop but couldn't resist join in on the FUN!!!

I am now of to put my donation in so please help out this wonderful course.

Challenge Two

The second challenge was a colour challenge.

Create a card 3D item or layout using the colours pink, black and white.
Any excuse to scrapbook I say and I have to admit to having withdrawals.

For my layout I have used circle circus stamp set, raspberry tart DSP, rose red ribbon all on black cardstock. My photo has not been photoshoped (yep I can't get my head around that program) it's printed black & white and I have coloured the flowers with my blender pens and ink pads using regal rose and some touches of rose red.

Wheres the glitter I here you ask, I have painted kindy glitz on the inside of my hand made flowers.
The journaling reads "Flowers for you mum, they are for my love" oxox

Girls Night In Cyber Stamp

Well I have been completely inspired by the very talented Jayne Mercer to participate in her cyber stamp raising money for Breast Cancer. You can find here blog here and any donations can be made here.

The first Challenge was to choose a card from the idea book & catalogue or spring mini catty and turn it PINK.

I choose page 3 of the spring mini. Whats a PINK card without a sprinkle of glitter!!!!!

I have used Owl together now set, raspberry tart DSP and rose red ribbon.

Sympathy Cards

I have been busy making sympathy Cards because of a recent death in the family.
It isn't something that I had a supply of so I decided to make a few. I am really happy with how they turned out. I don't own any sympathy stamp sets yet they are still on my wish list.

I have the wonderful privilage of LOOKING AFTER my sisters stampin up stamps!!!!! Yep all four boxes of them. Yes I know it is tough. She is moving house so I happily put up my hand to LOOK AFTER them.

I have used Stem Silhouettes (retired set from mini catty) forest friends and curvy verses on choc chip, kiwi kiss and whisper white card stock.

This card I have used stem sillouettes, curvy verses, two way glue pen and glitter.
Once again, yep I really so like this set, stem sillouette, best yet and some rhinstones for a little bling!!.

I wanted to have a play with poppin pastels and pocket sillouettes was the perfect choice. I just love this set!!!!!!. If you are wondering what poppin pastels is turn to page 58 of the Idea book & Catalogue for a demo.
I have used the eyelet boarder punch to create the frame and curvy verses (another fav of mine).

Thanks for looking

Simply Scrappin Kit

I wanted to share some of the layouts I have made with stampin up's simply scrappin kit. This is from the Hoppy memories kit which I love. It is fantastic for boy layouts, having three little boys you can understand why it is for me.

The first is a double 8.5x11 which I am loving doing at the moment, especially as I have lots of A4 cardstock now. I have stamped the boarder with the All scollop's stamp set using my stamp-a-ma-jig.

I wanted to have a play with the sticky cuts and I have to say I am a big fan. Any excuse to add glitter to a layout!!!!! The trunk of my glittery tree is one of the ribbon die cuts from the kit.

My photo is only stuck down on three sides to create a pocket for journaling.

The next 12x12 layout "Play" was done as a demonstration so it doesn't have the detail that I would normally add, but I am happy with how it turned out.
The kits have so many embellishments, six sheets of 15.2x 30.5cm making it fantastic value.
I have put crystal effects on the frog, for a wet glossy look!!!!

Check them out on pages 136 to 138 of the catalogue. For only $36.95 you can catch up on some scrapping in no time.
