I was asked to create some baby cards for a customers upcoming card class and I wanted something very simple. I used Petal Pink and Very Vanilla card stock.
I created a mask and used sponge brayers to create the pink rectangle. I then used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Sahara Sand ink.
I also used the layering circle dies for the sentiment. The sentiment is from Animal Outing.

Last week my family and I were at The Collaroy Centre at a conference for the Christian Camping industry. We have been attending this conference since 2008 and it is run every second year. They run a trade show each time and as my husband runs his own business, Ministry of Tech, we have a stand at the Trade Show. It’s a good way to increase business for the next two years.
This year we decided we were going to do a marketing campaign that would involve a seat drop where we would put something onto each seat for the delegates. We came up with this idea.
As Stampin’ Up! sell the mini pizza boxes,
I thought it was something different than just a flyer dropped onto the seat and would also be something that people would remember. This idea has just grown into something that we didn’t expect.
On the top of the box I have used Tranquil Tide card cut out with a square from the Layering Squares Dies. I printed our logo onto Whisper White card stock and then cut that out using the Layering Squares Dies. We decided that we wanted to go with a theme of puzzle pieces which Stampin’ Up!’s Puzzle Pieces Thinlits and Big Shot Embossing Mats came in handy for. You can see the embossed image of puzzles on the top of the box.
We made up square business cards to go into the boxes with different icons to match the different areas of products & services that we provide.
We wanted to do some giveaways as well to some of the delegates so we came up with the idea of a puzzle that they had to solve. But we mixed up the puzzle pieces to make it a little harder and for them to mingle and network with the other delegates.
We were hoping the giveaways would have taken a couple of days for them to do but they were all completed within 15 minutes. We’ll have to come up with something that will take a lot longer next time around.
This term I will be holding another Childrens Craft Course. The course is for children in years 2 and up. The course will run on Wednesdays 4pm-530pm commencing 14th February through till 28th March, 2018.
During the course the children will learn about colour theory and stamping techniques. The projects that they’ll be making this term will be a 3D Frame with coloured swirls, a set of 6 cards with a box, 8 easter baskets that the kids can put eggs into and give to their friends and 4 more cards using some water colour pencils.
If you’d like to book your kids into this class then send me an email and I’ll book them in. My classes are limited to 6 students to allow me time to spend with each student.
