Summer Mini Catalogue Starts Soon

Ooooo! It's coming! The Summer Mini Catalogue will be here soon.... Starting on Dec 1st, it is crammed with new goodies just in time for your Christmas wishlist.

But with the Summer Mini starting soon, it does mean that time is running out for the Spring Mini Catty. Ending 30th Nov, contact me today if you are interested in purchasing any of the stamp sets or embellishments as they may never be seen again. If you wish to have a stick-beak at the catties, please click here

Also, I thought I'd take this moment to mention that the current 2009-10 Idea book is running until 31st 2010, and not finishing in March like previous years.

Hello! Can you believe its already the end of Nov!??

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick hello and to let you know that I am working on some projects at the moment.... I've been extra busy this week playing mum and dad to the girls as my hubby has been away plus my lil' bub burnt her feet in hot sand on Tues so we went for our first ever trip to the Emergency room at the hospital. Luckily, the blisters looked worse than what they seem to be as it has not slowed her down at all. It's amazing how resilient kids can be!!

So amongst all that I have made some more Christmas cards, as well as prepping for my Stamp 'n' Stack tomorrow night. I will post the pics over the wkend! Plus some sneak peaks of some new stamp sets soon to be released!

Hitting the right spot with men's cards

Hi Everyone,

I don't know about you, but I'm nearly always stumped when it comes to men's cards... I just find them challenging as you can't do flowers and make it pretty lol :)

Well in an attempt to overcome this problem I pulled out my Seeing Spots stamp set from the cupboard and made this men's card some time ago... I actually demonstrated it at a recent workshop as part of a focus on layering your card to add extra 'ooomph' and on this card its simply by adding the 3 big spots punched out with the 1.25" punch, raising the centre one on a dimensional and then stamping the background spots on vellum. Easy ways to add extra but without making it girly and just using a simple layout with no fuss.

Rubbing you the right way...

Hi all,

These are 3 quick note cards that I made using the rub-ons from the Bright Delights pack. The words have been stamped on the 2 cards with owls... And the weird thing is I was photographing the 'perfect pear' card when sesame street was on the telly and bert was playing the 'perfect pair' game! Bit freaky!!

These cards all use Tangerine Tango as the base card and the layers are chocolate chip, whisper white and kiwi kiss.

The little owl in the middle card is from the Forest Friends stamp set in the Spring Mini Catty and he's actually sitting up on a dimensional but unfortunately my photo doesn't show the height.

The 'Look who's turning (  )' stamp is from On your birthday stamp set.

For any more info, please leave me a comment or email me :)

Organic Grace Cards

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd show you a pic of a flower that in my garden at the moment (a gladioli). This is the first time in 4yrs that its had this big a flower (I've only taken a pic of the top half as the other part had wilted!).. Last year I managed to chop the flower off with the hedge trimmer and so I moved it to a new spot where there will be no hedge trimming... lol

So after seeing this flower blooming over the last couple of weeks, I thought I'd better use the Organic Grace stamp set I've had in the cupboard for a little while (isn't it always the way..I had the best of intentions when I picked out this set to stamp more often but as usual time is too short!). Here's 2 cards I've made....

This card I actually demonstrated on the wkend at a workshop and added a little extra sponging around the whisper white card of the flower and word images and also sponged regal rose and old olive on the corresponding card... Amazing the difference it makes, so I will have to make another and post a pic for you to compare :)

Oh I should mention that the Organic Grace stamp set is 1 of the Level 1 hostess sets, and the words "To you from me' is 1 stamp from the Best yet stamp set, which is another hostess set.
