Growing on the Swallowtail....

Hi Everyone,

Recently, I purchased the Swallowtail stamp set... In Clear mount... I was originally reluctant to buy it, it's only one stamp and honestly I didn't think I'd use it too much.

However thanks to pinterest and some of the blogs I follow I have been inspired!

These are the first couple of cards I have made with the Swallowtail.

I plan to do some heat embossing and a few other techniques so I'll be sure to share them with you... Not much crafting is happening here, well let me rephrase that as I hear my girls pulling out more sticky tape! There's not much of my crafting going on here as it's school holidays! lol :)

Testing out and playing with MDS

Hi Everyone,

I've been doing lots of playing with MDS or My Digital Studio over the past week or so... There hasn't been too much traditional style cardmaking happening...

Here's some of the scrapbook layouts I have done with MDS - I'm pretty happy with all these especially considering I don't normally do much scrapbooking!

 If you follow the months along each pic, you'll see I've got a few more to go before I've done a page for each month last year. This has probably matched all the paper scrapbooking I've done despite having the best intentions and loads of supplies hehehe :)

ESAD Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

The crew over at ESAD have rounded up 24 participants for the Seasonal Blog Hop - that's 24 demonstrators showcasing products from the current mini catalogue.

You may be starting here or you may be on your way around Did you love what Gail did with the Pop 'n' Cuts Dress Up Frame? That's working it's way up my wishlist every day!

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

Ok, now for my projects - I'm focussing on the Hexagon Honeycomb Embossing Folder.

Hexagon Honeycomb Embossing Folder with the Core'dinations Pool Party Card Stock, lightly sanded to create a distressed look and expose the contrasting colour of the card 

This time with the Core'dinations Primose Petal Card Stock

And of course I couldn't use the Hexagon Honeycomb folder without doing a little Bee punch art. Especially considering Dad and I are ramping our beehives back up.
This time I've inked up my folder with Daffodil Delight Ink and embossed onto Very Vanilla Card.

Thanks for visiting me on the blog hop, please leave a comment/feedback as I'd really love to hear from you :)

The next stop on the blog hop is Leonie and I'm sure she'll blow you away with her Tea Time Trinkets project.

** Edit 8/4/13 - Throughout this post I referred to the embossing folder several times as the Hexagon folder when it's acutally called the Honeycomb Embossing Folder - apologies for any confusion, I had got a little carried away googling ideas on both hexagon and honeycomb embossing folders :)
