Bridget's Birthday

Happy Birthday Bridget! This card was fun to make. I don't know many adults would like to get a card with candies in it, so I added the bird, cause Bridget loves birds more than.... chocolate.

Where Have I Been?

Hello again, I have been MIA again. It's not that I haven't been making cards and scrapping, it's more of a time management problem. If there were only another five more hours a day, I think I could do everything I'm trying to do in a day.
I have been making cards to give away, rather than stash for my next Demo or workshop. I found there is great satisfaction in actually creating a card for a person, rather than for a challenge, or a workshop. Ironic, hey? What I am trying to say is I lost prospective of what was important, and placed too much emphasis keeping up with the papercraft industry.
So, now my posts will start with "I made this card for...." , so here goes.
I made this little card for Naomi and Matt, Olivia and Stephie, 'cause they have a new baby sister, Jessica!
The Stamp set is All in the Family, and Neighbourhood Wheel. The pram is from Fun and Fast notes. I made the baby to pop up and down out of the pram. It took a little figuring out, and as usual, these great ideas come because I made a booboo, that had to be fixed - hence the pop up baby was improvised. Thanks for stopping by. : - )

Happy New Year Everyone!

Here we are, it's 2010! I have had a really great 2009, and did lots of things that I had on hold. It was a great year of home renovations, spending more time doing domestic things like de cluttering, and helping out at the local school. Teaching Religion was one of the highlights. I had the grade three and Four, and they were the loveliest group of children. The grade four children were so enquiring, and eager to learn.
I took up Quilting with the local Uniting Church ladies, and had the best time. There is something wonderful about these ladies, they are so much fun, and are so helpful and knowledgeable. I am looking forward to starting back and making a few quilts this year.
I am still a SU! consultant, and look forward to paper crafts this year too.I hope to spend a little more time scrapbooking this year. My kids are all heading towards 18 and 21st's so it would be nice to present them with an album.
I started with a ladies bible study group this past year also, but stopped to help a friend with cancer. The group leader has kept me stocked in the books, and I have enjoyed doing them at home. I hope to continue this in the new year. My friend is starting an other round of Chemo, so I still want to be there for her.
John starts grade 1 this year. He had so much fun in Prep. and is looking forward to starting back. I decided not to home school him, as he spends so much time around teens and adults. He is really enjoying being one of the little people.

Butterfly Prints

Another new set for all those who are addicted to Butterflies. But wait, there's more!! Yes, a wonderful magical Butterfly Punch. No more cutting out by hand for me! I am lost somewhere between too many ideas and not enough time to play, so here is my first attempt at making the most of many new things. Hope you like it!

Circle Scissor Plus!

Aha! Finally! The circle Scissor Plus has arrived and I can show you what I have been doing. Other than testing out every size circle known to mankind, I have made a card or two. I am not addicted to Bright bolds, so this DSP was one really big challenge for me to use. I still find it hard to like this card, but I do like some of the features of it. I like the Peacock and the funky little border around the circles. How did I do that???? mmmm... The secret is the square scallop punch. Worked it out yet?? Just cut a heap of the scallops into 1/4's, and glue them around. Cute Hey??

Hello Again!

Cute name for an even cuter Stamp Set. It reminds me of lazy long days of summer, where the air is filled with all kinds of Butterflies and bugs, and flowers of all colours are in bloom. I think I may even try this set out with a scratch and sniff flower.
This is a Marque Card, CASED from a lovely stamper called JanTinks. After a few attempts, I finally did my own thing with the"curtains" in the card centre. Hope you like it!

Summer's Arrived!

The Summer Mini is here! There is a sizzling Fifteen new stamp sets, new ribbons, papers and a Punch. Sneaking in on the last page is the long awaited Circle Scissor Plus!There is something there for everyone.Haven't received your catalogue yet? Send me an email to receive your copy, or click

All Wrapped Up

Christmas time is so much fun!
Not only do we get to make cards, and do lots of scrapbooking, but it's also time to think about wrapping up that special little something for that special someone.
SU! have this lovely little template, called the "Top Note" Template, I have seen lots of wonderful ways to use it.
So, here's my version of a box, that needed a top.
The base is made with Urban Garden DSP, and the Top Note Template is copied onto Baja Breeze card, and cut out by hand. (The Big Shot is on every SU! Demonstrator's wish list, with all the trimmings.) The top is sponged with cling wrap to give a Suede effect. Hope you like it.
