More Dinoroar Cards

Hi Everyone,

A customer ordered some Dinosaur cards from me and needed a t-rex one in addition to the samples I sent through... So here's my t-rex dinoroar card:

Seeing 2? Well that's because I had my clever stamper hat on and made one for my nephew who's turning 3 today!! I just changed the coloured layers around.

I also got to test out a new embossing folder "Stripes" and I like it!

Now this coming weekend is going to be special in 2 ways,
1) It's a long weekend here in WA
2) this is the most important - I'm celebrating being a Stampin' Up! Demo for 5yrs!! Yes that's right 5yrs!! So make sure you pop over to my facebook page and keep an eye on my blog as there will be a few things happening on each to celebrate!

Sunny Stamping Challenge - SC 029/12

Hi Everyone,

Today I joined in the Sunny Stamping Challenge, which you can find here.

It was a colour challenge this week and this is what I made....

The embossing folder is not a SU one and I noticed that the pattern doesn't go all the way to the fold line of the folder - something to keep in mind if you are ever buying a different brand.

Anyway, the ladies run some great challenges each week and I really encourage you to join in this Aussie challenge site!! :)

Hi Everyone,

So today's mission whilst having a lazy day is to make better use of my pinterest account and upload some of my creations. Sounds easy enough doesn't it... However with a slightly foggy head because of a semi-head cold  (yes, I'm not giving whatever bug I've got the credit of being a normal head cold as it's only in my sinuses and nose! very annoying and uncomfortable!), it was proving slightly more confusing than I'd expected.

Anyway, I've got a few things added, some that link properly back to my blog and some that don't... I'll be looking into those ones later....

So if you are on Pinterest, you can follow me by clicking on the link below:

And if you would like to join Pinterest, please email me and I will send you an "invite".

Dinoroar Cards

Hi Everyone,

Whilst I was at the Village at Wellard Markets earlier this month, I was asked about some boys birthday cards with dinosaurs. How happy was I to advise my customer that the Dinoroar Stamp Set was on it's way to me as we spoke from Stampin' Up!

Here's 4 of the cards I've made so far

There was one more but I forgot to photograph it before it dinoroared and stomped off to a special 2 yo boy we know.

Lack of mojo alert!

Hi Everyone,

I've been debating with myself whether or not to share these photos, as I think these cards have a serious lack of mojo and creativity!!

Well, I guess they don't look so bad, they looked worse in real life! But we are always our own worst critic! lol :)

Baby Cards

Hi Everyone,

Here's a couple of baby cards I've made using one of the stamps from the "Give a Gift" stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

And this one was made with the Stocking Punch... I've seen the stocking punch used as baby booties on lots of sites, so I can't and won't credit it as my own idea but at the same time, I can't narrow it down to the first place I saw it.

The Summer Mini catalogue is valid until 31st March, along with the Sale-a-bration catalogue too. Please email me if you would like to order anything.

Custom Ordered Invites

Hi Everyone,

Last month a friend asked me to make some invites for her 2yo's upcoming birthday party.

This is what I designed...

The blurred parts are obviously where the address was, but no-one needs to know that now :)

If you are interested in some custom ordered invites for your next event, I'd love to help you out.

You can find me at The Glades Art & Fresh Produce Markets are on tomorrow afternoon, from 4-9pm in Byford, or email me.

A couple of random cards

Hi Everyone,

Hands up if, like me, you have a stash of stamped images that you mean to colour and add to a card.

Here's my use of some such images and even a couple of die-cut flowers & butterflies.

"Riding Hood Red", "Very Vanilla" & "Pumpkin Pie"

"Calypso Coral" & "Pink Pirouette"

The retired colour "Taken with Teal" and a new in-colour  "Pool Party" here - Great combo isn't it!

And remember, Sale-a-bration is currently under way! With a free gift for every $100 spent, why not stock up on some stamps or cardstock today!

Customer Order

Hi Everyone,

Lookie what I made! I've finally finished delivered a custom order bag for a demonstrator friend.

I've handstamped each of the white panels and straps and cut all the squares with my BigShot and the scalloped square die. It's big enough to fit just about everything in!

Lots of work, but it looked good when finished and I hope Kylie really likes it!

Pretty Little Things Collaboration

Hi Everyone,

Over the past couple of weeks, Jo from Pretty Little Things and I have been collaborating our work and have made these hair clip birthday cards.

Here's a selection of what we've made:

They've been selling fast over at the Pretty Little Things page, so needless to say, we'll be catching up soon to make some more! lol :)

The Glades in January

Hi Everyone,

Well, we did it the first week of school has been and gone with no major incidents, tears or setbacks. I'm very proud of my 2 girls - Miss Pre-Primary and Miss 4yo Kindy. So that's my excuse for being pretty quiet on here over the last week or so, but with my new 5kid-free days a fortnight starting on Monday, I'm should have lots of crafting time - right?

And with the lack of crafting this week, I'm resorting to sharing a couple of pics of my new stall set-up at the Glades Markets last month.

Remember, it's on the 3rd Saturday of every month.

But in case you are looking for something to do this Sunday, I'll be at The Village Markets at Wellard with Jo from Pretty Little Things. You can find it on Twickenham Parade and The Strand, Wellard from 9-1pm. and there's going to be heaps for the whole family and even a car boot sale too!

And some of my other crafty friends like Eirian Body Products, Billie Be and Jen's Joys will be at the Serpentine Markets at Turner Cottage, Serpentine.
