Nailed It

By | 28/02/2017

In February, my husband and I celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.  I must admit, I am not a mushy demonstrative person so cards for my husband particularly for Valentines and anniversaries can be a little challenging. To be fair, masculine cards in general can be challenging but the new Nailed It stamp set really helps. So,… Read More »

By | 25/02/2017

Recently I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Creative Inkers Stamp Camp in Rotorua.  Despite the torrential rain all weekend we had a fabulous time (as always) with lots of paper crafting, swaps and many, many laughs.

Back in November, I was fortunate to be able to attend the demonstrator only On Stage Live event in Brisbane.  We all had a fabulous time meeting other demonstrators as well as a lot of the Stampin’ Up! staff from the Utah head office, playing with new products, business discussions and meeting many new friends… Read More »

Beautiful You – Re-revisited

By | 09/02/2017

If you can’t tell by now, I love this stamp set.  I had a great time playing around with it and coming up with several different projects. The image on this card is perhaps a little more solemn but still works well with the sentiment.  What better way to feel alive than a walk in… Read More »

Watercolour Window Box Card

By | 05/02/2017

Just in case you thought the Window Box dies were only for creating the box here’s an idea using one of the dies in conjunction with bit of watercolouring to create a simple but elegant card. To start, cut a piece of Shimmery White card stock slightly smaller than the top layer.  Spritz lightly with… Read More »
