Poinsettia Merry Christmas !

Hi friends! It's been awhile since I posted, as I lost my mojo and it took weeks for me to get back in the swing of things , but, I'm back! I've been making Christmas cards using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die, and I can't stop!! I just LOVE how this die looks when made up! Here is one of my cards.. I used and old Kaisercraft paper, from the Holy Night collection , a Kaisercraft stitched rectangle die, and the sentiment is from and old stamp set by Layers Of Color. I hope you are well and having fun in your craft rooms! It has been in the high 30s ( Celsius) here in the last couple of days, and will be for the next week ... Hello summer..
Thanks for popping by and many blessings! xx

Happy Birthday Carly!

Hi friends! My dear daughter Carly turned 31 on the 16th. Where did that go??? I made her card using the Echo Park "Party Time" collection of papers and stickers. I used the Kaisercraft stitched rectangle dies to make the frame out of SU glitter card, then put the cup cake sticker with sprinkles behind the frame. The balloon and sentiment are stickers too.  I see her tomorrow as she has the week off so I'm taking her to lunch so I hope she likes it!!  I am having a real slump with cardmaking. I have only made a few cards recently and only because I had to. I need help lol. Do you have any suggestions??!? Anything will be a help. Thanks so much for popping by, and many blessings xx

Karen's Card!

Hi friends! How are you? Hope you are well. I finally gave in to the many germs around, me and had a virus for a week, but all good now. We have been having some very warm days, one day last week it was 29c !! Come on! It's winter!! At least it's dropped down but not as cool as it had been. Ah well, no point complainin' . Now, onto my card! This card was for my friend Karen, who I met on our Down Under Stamping chat, but have since met twice at the Brisbane Papercraft Convention. I used distress inks on the background, then splattered with water drops. Then I stamped and embossed the flowers and leaves from the Alternew Beautiful Day set. I loved how it turned out! I was inspired from a you tube I saw, I think it was Yana, I love her tutorials!! Thanks for popping by, and many blessing xx

Happy 80th Aunty Judy !

Hi friends! I made this card for my sister Gina, to give our Aunty Judy who turns 80 on the 19th. She isn't really our aunt just our mums friend we grew up with , and she is Ginas godmother. She has just started to scrapbook, and told me she loves shabby chic and vintage, so I think she will like the card I made. I used Lemoncrafts House Of Roses paper, which I destressed. I added a frame die cut from one of my Kaisercraft collectables packs along with lace and flowers from my stash. I punched some butterflies out of the paper with a MS punch, and added some pearls then some ribbon and a bow. I also added some of the paper to the inside as well...I really like it ! Hope you do too! Thanks for popping by, and many blessings xx

Happy 90th Mrs Nichols!

Hi friends! Been a bit quiet as my mojo has gone on I have only been doing orders .. Hope it comes home soon. This card is for our founding Pastors wife, who turns 90 on the 13th. We love them both and don't see them as often as they only come on Sunday morning or not at all depending on their health.  The inspiration for the card came from my friend "Pinterest" and I used Lemoncraft papers, from Everyday Spring. Flowers were from my stash and the die cut frame was from Spellbinders Antique Frame And Accents. Thanks for popping by,
Hope you are all well and many blessings xx

Elaine's Birthday Card.

Hi friends! How are you? It's a lovely cool day here after an abundance of rain yesterday and last night. Windy though. Now to my card. Here is my card for our church to sign for our former Pastors wife, Elaine. I make one every year since they left 12 years ago. They were here for 19 years , I was there for 17 of those years, both helped me so much on my Christian walk.  I miss them but we move on. I used Lemoncrafts  Everyday  Spring for the papers as well as the stamped flowers and leaves, which I embossed with white embossing powder. Then fussy cut. The stamps are SU Fabulous Florets, my favourite set I think! I also used one of the layers from my new Sue Wilson die, Copenhagen, it's so pretty.  The sentiment is from IBS. Thank you so much for popping by, and many blessings xx
