Next weeks classes are a One Sheet Wonder using the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. I created these cards at the come and play day at my team leaders home. This photo does not do the cards justice. The class cost is $25 for 12 cards, however, you can purchase a pack of the Tropical Oasis designer paper for just $15 in addition to the class fee. You can then make some more cards at home. This is a saving of $10.95 (including shipping). You can see more details about my class at this link.Product List
A couple of weeks ago I saw a video on youtube on how to make a junk journal. I hadn’t heard of them before so I watched a couple of videos. Then I saw a video that used an old Readers Digest book cover to create a junk journal. My Dad had dozens of them when I was growing up and wondered if he still had them. So I called him and asked and he did, however they weren’t the books I had originally thought of, they were older than I remember. In fact the have so much more character than I had remembered.
I created this Journal using old pages from notebooks, some DSP and the book cover from the Readers Digest. I threaded some bakers twine through the sheets of paper to create a book and then added memorabilia to it. These photos of the finished project with out additional items and photos in it.
I am holding a class this week on how to make them. My classes are Friday 28th at 10am and Saturday 29th 10am. If you’d like to join me you can see more details on my facebook page or click on this link.Product List
The Timeless Tropical stamp set is a gorgeous set that has so many lovely images in the set including the hibiscus flower and the frangipani, not to mention the leaves in the set.
I created 2 of the cards fairly easily using the blog hop I did in January but then changed up the hibiscus colour to match the card base. I did a quick search and found lots of other colours that the flower could be and played with them.
I then went to a come and play day at my team leaders home and came up with the other two cards. I’m happy with the final result of all 4 of the cards.
These 4 cards are the ones we’ll be making in this weeks classes. If you’d like to come along and make these cards with me, then click on this link to see more details.
One of my recent Stamp a Stack classes featured the “Above the Clouds” stamp set. I do love how these cards turned out. I wouldn’t normally use these colours together but with some encouragement from a couple of friends I went with the colours and they really work well together.
The original design was one I copied from my amazing talented upline, Marelle but I changed up the stamp set and colours and they are a whole new set of cards.
I chose different embossing folders to use in the background on the Bermuda Bay. When stamping the Hot Air Balloon I used full strength Bermuda Bay and then for the solid image in the balloon I stamped off in Bermuda Bay.
The small hot air balloons in the background are stamped off as well. What do you think? Would you like to make these cards? I have a few card kits available. If you order the Above the Clouds Bundle and three coloured Stamp Pads, I will give you a card kit to make the 5 cards. Just click on any of the images below to be taken to my shop and place your order. Don’t forget to use my hostess code at the top of this page.

I would love to see you and have fun being creative.
Last month I was asked to be the entertainment for an 11 year olds birthday party. She chose to make a unicorn canvas that I had on my facebook page. The original idea was from another demonstrator in the UK I believe. I love the canvas though and can’t bare to part with my original one.
There were 8 girls and 2 boys. The boys didn’t want to do unicorns so I had to come up with something for them to make that was quick and in a sport theme. I don’t have boys so it was a little harder for me to come up with something but was able to borrow some soccer dies from a friend. I then looked at a local popular soccer team and copied their uniforms.
There was so much talent from the girls and all of the girls added their own style to their canvas. I just love how all of them are so different. If you look closely you can see in the background that they have added texture paste with different stencils.
If you’re interested in having me for your child’s next birthday party, get in contact and we can make it happen. I am happy to travel outside of Sydney but there will be an additional charge to cover travel expenses.Product List
This Sunday my youngest daughter’s school is holding their Biennial fair and I will be having a stall there. I am really looking forward to being in the community and raising some funds for our primary school. It is always a fabulous day with lots of community spirit with all the families pitching in and helping on their children’s class stalls.
My daughters class stall is the Hair Spray, nails & tattoo stall. As I will have my own stall to run I have enlisted my eldest daughters help and a friend of hers to help in my stead. Both girls are looking forward to helping out and I’m very encouraged by their willingness to help.
Below is how I set up my stall 2 years ago which I felt worked well. I am changing it up again so I can see how it goes with a different layout and display.
I will have some class flyers to hand out to anyone that is interested and have some of the projects on display for people to see. I will also have some catalogues and a simple make and take.
If you are around on Sunday, pop in and say hi.
