Little birdy...

Remember last week I showed you some of my creative efforts from my last class?  Remember I promised to show you the other half?  No?  Well here are the other 4 cards I made.  I used the same colour scheme - Rich Razzleberry, Kiwi Kiss, Soft Suede and Whisper White - but very different stamps and punches.  






Do you recognise the stamp I used on the whisper white cardstock before punching out the bird?  Can anyone guess?  I'm not going to tell you (and I won't put the 'ingredients' list below today) - but I promise I'll tell you in my next project post.  (You might need to remind me though... he he he)
I love the two-step jumbo bird punch.  It's just one of the cutest punches I've seen in a long time.  I keep using it over and over again - and have so many different effects.  I can't wait until I have some free time (hopefully this weekend) to see what I can come up with to make some other projects using it.
Well thats enough rambling for the day - thanks fo…

So simple stamp-a-stack

Yay - I'm so excited because I get to show you a recent project today.

On the weekend I held my regular stamp-a-stack class.  This week it turned out to be a very small class so we decided to get a little more creative and branch out from copying my demo cards. Because it was small I also had the opportunity to make 8 cards and it was so much fun to be able to sit and get creative.

Here's what I came up with.  I'm only going to show you four today... You'll just have to come back next week to see the rest ;-)







I saw some cards using this cute little cup demoed a while ago and it made me lust after the stamp so much I just HAD to buy it ;-)  Luckily it's super cheap - just $11.95 so it didn't break the bank.  I used some of the new colours (soft suede and rich razzleberry) and combined them with an old favourite - kiwi kiss.  I don't normally say this about my work but I love how clean and simple these cards are. I'm absolutely hooked on using the tea cu…

Something fun

At my last open house I couldn't decide between two make-and-takes, so I gave up and encouraged everyone to make both.  Last week I showed you the first one which was very vintage and in muted natural colours (with a hint of blue) which is right up my alley.  For the second make-and-take I wanted to stretch myself and also show everyone the versatility of Stampin' Up! products, so we made this very bright, very floral, very simple card.  (You'll have to excuse the photography again the light was terrible!)


I used the Big Shot scallop circle die over a folded piece of Melon Mambo to create this cute card.  It took all of about 3 minutes to make - which would be perfect if you had to made a bunch of these for invites or thank-you cards.
For something so bright I really kind of like it - although the photos don't show the colour at all well - sorry - you'll just have to come to a class and I'll show it to you in person.  
Anyway thats all I've got to show you tod…

Finally a project to show you!

It's been a LONG time since I've posted a picture of something I've made - so I'm quite excited about my post today.  This card was one of the make-and-takes at my last open house.  We used all my favourite things - the two-step bird punch, the very vintage jumbo wheel and gorgeous neutral colours.  Apologies in advance for the horrible photography - it was pretty late at night and... well that's it really I don't have a better excuse :-)






Do you like it?  I hope so.  I'm determined to try and find a little more time just to create things to share on here.  I know I'm so far behind - so encourage me to get back on track :-)

That's it from me today - other than to remind you about my project class on Saturday morning where were making the tote bag and cards I show cased here.  Let me know if you want a seat at the table.

Classes this week

Hi everyone,

Well as always I'm starting with an apology for being very behind in my blogging.  In my defense I was in China last week and couldn't access blogger :-(  The good news is that I'm back and I'm super keen to get crafty.  So much so that I'm holding a project class on Tuesday night and I hope you'll come and join in.

Remember my birthday treat blog from 2 weeks ago?  No?  Well to refresh your mind you can check out the post here.  I made a cute little tote containing 4 cards for my friends birthday.  In fact I loved the design so much I decided that it would be my project class this month!




I'm offering this class for the first time tomorrow night.  Yes that's right tomorrow - Tuesday 8 June.  We meet at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start (or earlier if you're all here) and will make the tote bag and 4 cards that go inside - all for $20.  I still have seats available at the table so let me know if you're interested.  You can call or sms me at …
