Picture to Page show 2018

Hi There,
Well Picture to Page show in Kangaroo Flat is fast approaching on the weekend 10th March from 9am till 4pm and 11th March 10am till 4pm. Rosalie and I will be there on the Saturday to be joined by Cindy on the Sunday.

Thought I'd share with you the classes we'll be teaching:

As there will be limited space at the classes we run at the show, and a few of you have been interested in the cards I'm teaching on Saturday, I'll be repeating that as a class on 20th March instead of the Interactive Cards class, so there'll be one at 10.30am and one at 7.30pm.  Let me know if you'd like to book in for the one's I'm holding here.  Bookings for the Picture to Page show will be taken at the show.

I hope you can make it to the Picture to Page Show, as it promises to be a great time, it's held at the Kangaroo Flat Primary School Stadium, (Olympic Parade)

I hope these inspire you to create!
God Bless love

Tag Card for February

Hi there, 
thought I'd share with you the card you'll be receiving if you place an order with me this month, and also the tag that you can create into a card that will be hanging on your bag!

First up is this special thank you card for you, it uses the amazing Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-Bration set, you can get this set for FREE! when you purchase $90 of goodies, it's available till the end of March. This stamp is amazing! it's called a Distinktive(R) stamp, and this new design of stamp lays down ink at different opacities giving the finished image that amazing depth.
Here is the "tag" card that you'll also receive to create, use the tag from your bag, I've used the cute Flying Home stamp set, colour it in, add the 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper together (I've used Tutti Fruitty),  Add them across the middle of your card base, add a dotted line along the top and bottom edge, and then adhere your tag to your card (I used dimensionals to lift it up a bit)

Don't forget when you order $90+ you can choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product, this goes through to the end of March, so make the most of it, if you'd like to order, either let me know, or you can order direct online, just click the "shop here" tab above or on one of the blue links.

I hope these inspire you to create!

Colour INKspiration Challenge #26

Hi there,
I decided to join in with the Colour Inkspiration challenge for this fortnight, as I love these colours they remind me of a peacock :)
So, this is the challenge, to use the below colours:

No automatic alt text available.
And here is my creation for the challenge:
I have used all the colours in the cardstock I have in the card, but the background is made from the Iridescent Glimmer paper in the Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper pack, then I've spritzed it with water, and sprinkled over the new Brusho Crystal Colour , and added more spritzed water. Then allowed it to dry (eventually got fed up with the waiting, blotted it and dried it with the first setting on my heat tool lol)  I just LOVE the background effects you can get with the Brusho!  For this particular one, I used the Moss Green, Prussian Blue and Yellow.  The Word and flower are cut out using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlit dies.
Hopefully it works for the challenge! what do you think?

I hope this inspires you to create.

Interactive Cards Class for February

Hi there,

For my February Interactive Cards Class on Tuesday 20th Feb, I will be teaching Twist'n'Pop Cards, this will be available as a kit for those who can't make it to the class (the only part I can't provide you with is the stamped images)  All the cardstock will be cut and scored for you and there will be instructions included.
Here are the cards:

The Designer Series Papers used may vary from card to card, in the first card we'll be using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper,  The Happy Birthday will be die cut for you using the Happy Birthday Thinlits die cut from the stunning Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper and the cute Pandas are stamped images cut out (the Party Pandas stamp set is available for FREE when you order $90+ until the 31st March)
In the second card we'll be using the Tutti Fruity Designer Series Paper, the Celebrate You thinlit dies (which are available for FREE with an order of $180+) Also the Pretty Label Punch, and the fun Bird stamped images are from Bird Banter Stamp set (just love these birds and sayings!) And I think at $30 for 19 stamps it's a complete bargain!
I'm uploading a couple of videos of opening the cards below (hopefully they work!)
If you are interested in joining the class I have one in the morning at 10.30am and one in the evening at 7.30pm in Laanecoorie Class cost is $20.  Otherwise I can mail this pack out to you, cost for the pack is $15 with $2 postage ($17 all up)
I hope this inspires you to create.

X Box fun!

Hi there, 
Well tomorrow son #1 (Benjamin) is off to a party, so.....Mum can you make him one of those X Box controller cards....
After making it (actually I ended up making 4 so I have some spares!) I thought wey hey I can do a blog post on this lol!

Here is my version of the X Box controller as a card:
I have used a combination of circle punches 1", 1/2", 3/4"  (and other punches such as the Cookie Cutter builder punch!)
Here is the original controller that I copied from:

And then I decided to get creative, as Ben said, well they do come with patterns on them too Mum:
Break out the Sale-a-Bration set Epic Celebration - if you purchase $90 of goodies you could get this set for free! :)
 He picked the creative one!
What do you think? which would you pick?
Thanks for reading this, and I hope it inspires you to look at things around you and see if you can create a card to look like them!, I'd love to see what you create!

God Bless love

Love Roller Coasters?

Hi There

Thought I'd share a video from Stampin' Up! today, which uses the "Let the Good Times Roll" bundle (stamps and dies), it is a really cute set, if you like roller coasters you'll love it! and it would make such a Wow card when you open it up.

Let me know what you think of this, love it or leave it?
I hope it inspires you to create! 

If you are placing an order, do use this hostess code for the chance to "win" the hostess dollars AYMSXB66

God Bless love
