All Geared Up to Celebrate

My eldest daughter started high school this year and has made some lovely friends. She was invited to one of her friends birthdays last weekend. I made this card for her friend. I am hoping that he likes the card. I used the gears from the Garage Gears Dies to cut out in copper foil.

I embossed the Gray Granite card base with the Brick & Mortar folder and then using a dauber I inked around the edge of the card and on some of the bricks.

I cut out the Basic Gray card stock using the Stitched Rectangle dies and stamped the sentiment on there in Tuxedo Black Momento. I adhered everything with my tombow glue rather than dimensionals.

Tropical Chic Floating Frame

When the floating frame technique came out I wasn’t really interested in doing the technique as the main thing to create the technique was very hard to acquire in Australia, but when I found the Press & Seal at Costco I just had to try it out.

I created this card using the Tropical Chic stamp set which I really loved playing with the stamps and dies. I love the colours as well. I used Granny Apple Green & a new In Color Rococo Rose.

The technique I believe was originally created by Jennifer McGuire. This really is a fun technique to play with and I want to try it again but just haven’t had the time. I plan to run it as a class soon too.

Here is a close up of the outside frame

I love that you can get two cards with one technique. Here is the inside part of the frame which creates another lovely card to send to someone dear in your life.

Don’t you just love the green and pink together? I just love these colours.

What do you think? Would you like to try out this technique?

Birthday Chupa Chups

It was my youngest daughter’s 10th birthday this week and it is encouraged to take something to school to share with the class. I used to make cupcakes for the class but changed it up a few years ago as I knew I was going to be very time poor just before their birthdays so I started making a little something for them to hand out to the class.

This year I used some chupa chups and made these cute little lollypop holders. I found the idea on pinterest and found this gorgeous idea, however it was in italian so had to use some tech skills to translate some of the measurements and I was then able to figure it out.
I finished off the edge of card stock with the story label punch.
I have used a retired punch for this as it was just perfect. I used a retired hand held punch to make a hole in the top and then tied some twine to hold it on and used a dimensional to hold it in place.

Team Blog Hop #10

Can you believe it? We’re in double digits for our Blog Hop.

Thanks for joining us on our blog hop journey of Holiday Catalogue Projects. This month’s challenge was a great one to do as we all get to play with brand new product from the new Holiday Catalogue which was only released 10 days ago.

I have chosen to play with the Memories & More Card Pack from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I have always loved these cards as they make creating cards very quick and easy. In this card pack you get 6 each of 9 double designs and 6 sticker sheets. So you could easily grab 5 friends and get together to make some simple Christmas cards.

There is very little stamping on these cards as most of them already have the sentiments for you. I did add the “Celebrate the Season” to Santa in Cherry Cobbler ink from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set as he needed a little something extra and rather than using a punch I just used my papersnips to cut the Vanilla Card on an angle to add some extra dimension.

Team Blog Hop #9

Welcome to this months Team Blog Hop #9. You may have joined me from Olivia’s blog. Please feel free to take a look around. This month we had a colour challenge using up to 5 colours. I chose to use 4 colours and hoping that using whisper white is allowed.

I chose to use the High Tide stamp set along with some patterned paper from the Come Sail Away DSP.

I used some Balmy Blue layered under the striped patterned paper and then with the Mint Macaron I used the Subtle 3D embossing folder to add some texture.

I stamped the sentiment onto a Sahara Sand Circle using the Layering Circle Dies and then using the same circle cut out a Balmy Blue circle to layer off centre.

Family Fun Fair

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.
