I’ve been feeling a bit despondant for the last week or so about the standard of my cards. I think I’ve been looking at too many other blogs where the cards are AMAZING! So I’ve felt the need to get back to what I love doing and that is colouring in. 🙂 I would so love… Read More
Goodies in the mail!! I’ve been asked to take part in a Stampers Challenge for Stamping and Papercraft. This is the first time I’ve done this, so I’m a little scared, but alot excited. Just looking at the stamps now, I can see all sorts of possibilites. Best get cracking!
We have a group name. The Artful Stampers! I have some more cards and a layout to post up, but it may have to be tomorrow, i’m pooped today. We’ve had 33 degrees with a northerly wind, not noice!
Yay! I’m organised early this week for Linc’n’Learn. Normally on a Tuesday nite while the kids are in the bath, I’m madly trying to make some cards for my group. It does feel good to have them made already. Now I just need to get myself organised for Wednesday nites Demo that I’m doing. I… Read More
I thought I’d try something different for this week. It’s the Rock n Roll technique, stamp in a one colour and then ‘roll’ the edges of the stamp in another colour. Bold stamps work best, and it can give a really good effect. Cards are made using Ballet Blue, Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive Cardstock. Ballet… Read More

The following cards were my offerings for Linc’n’Learn this week. Just something a little fun and a bit corny. The Stamp Sets used for the main images are from the Hostess Level 3 set Furnished with Love. The first card uses Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Cameo Coral Cardstock and Inkpads. I’ve sponged Cameo Coral… Read More
DS 5 is going to a birthday party today, woohoo!! It’s his first party, with a friend that HE made, and it’s a girl. And what’s more, he is going to marry her! So I was thinking that I’d best make a card for her, but realised that I have no stamps that are children… Read More
The ladies had a great time today (well I hope they did!), so while they made their cards, I made another scrapbook layout. The size is 6×6, using all the same products at the cards below. I’ve used white ribbon but have run it over my inkpad to colour it, a bit messy, but it… Read More

The lighting is a bit dodgy, will try to take some more in the daylight. Materials for all cards: Cardstock: Whisper White, Orchid… Read More
I first saw a Catalogue about a year ago.ï¿½ I’d never seen anything like Stampin’ Up! before (I was involved with another Direct Selling Craft Company).ï¿½ The way all the stamps were designed to go with each other and packaged in sets was really different.ï¿½ AND the colour range was fantastic.ï¿½ The Cardstock, Inkpads, Colouring… Read More
Just had to share (currently with myself as no one is reading this yet), I just had the postie deliver a parcel from the States. I am now the owner of a stamp set called Polka-Dot Posies. I did a trade with a demo in the states, and this is what I got! Now it’s… Read More
