SOME FAVOURITE CARDS FROM 2017!

It’s the end of another year.  I have to say I have really enjoyed my stamping this year.  I have tried some new techniques and got involved in some challenges.  It’s been fun!

I thought I would look back at some of my favourite projects from this past year.  Now I did think I would pick one from each month but it was getting too hard.  So I have just picked a few.  If you click on the title you can see more details of the project.

** Apologies in advance: lots of photos. 🙂

Delicate Details Dragonfly

I think the Delicate Details stamp set was my favourite for Sale-A-Bration for 2017.

Multi Stamping for the boys cards

The Nailed It set was great for the boys cards earlier this year.

This was the most popular class for the year.

A SPECIAL CARD IN A BOX!

I know we’re in the midst of the all the excitement with the new catalogue but I just have to share this project.  I know it is using retired products now but I thought you might still like to see it.

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to make a special baby card for her new grandchild.  At that time she didn’t know what the gender was and requested it to be Teal Green in colour with splashes of red. I knew the family as well so I wanted it to be pretty special.  I recreated a card in a box that I made some time ago.  You can see that original project HERE. That card in a box has been repinned 3.3K times on Pinterest so I thought it might just be “good enough”. 🙂

The only paper I had to match the Bermuda Bay card was this retired paper.  I can’t even remember the name of it.  I just found a few scraps of it in my retired paper box. Lucky!!!

I dug out my ‘Something For Baby’ set too from my retired box.  That was lucky too as I don’t have any new baby stamps as yet.

So enough of the chatter.  Here it is.

I used Watermelon Wonder which matched. (Grabbed that out of the retired box too!).

I realised I didn’t get a photo of the left side flap.  That had little booties in Crushed Curry and I tied teeny, tiny bows in White Baker’s Twine.  The sentiment is from ‘Baby Bear’ – yes! That is current! I probably could have used that but Baby Bear was a bit big for the box.

Well it was very well received and I can tell you that baby Phoebe arrived safely last week.  She is very gorgeous and they were all delighted and fascinated in the card.  It can be displayed on the shelf in the nursery for some time to come.

Thanks for indulging me.  Back to current products in next post.

Swirly Bird Pinwheels  This card amazes me.  It is just a simple funky card that I was playing around with one day with the Swirly Bird set. It has had a huge reaction on Pinterest with it being repinned 5,400 times!!

Cookie Cutter Tag.

I realised I had never posted this tag.  I made this tag the same time I made the Z-Fold card above. It was just a simple tag and I didn’t bother sharing it. I shared it on a group I am on though and someone Pinned it to Pinterest. It has now been repinned 5,700 times!  Sorry you missed out on seeing it. 🙂

Birthday Fiesta Llama.  This guy just makes me smile.  I had to share him again. 🙂

I am looking forward to another exciting year ahead of creating and sharing with you.

Be safe for the New Year.

“SOMETHING FOR BABY” CARD IN A BOX!

I have just received the new “Something For Baby” set from the new Catalogue.  It is so cute. I do have a few baby cards to make but I just had to make one of the ‘Card in a Box’ type cards first.  I have to show you it.

Isn’t it the cutest?? (or can I say that about my own card!)  I think all the images in the set are so cute and they all work together so well, PLUS no hand cutting.  Just use the matching framelits!

It was such fun to put together.  I have used the ‘Moonlight’ DSP paper stack which is also from the new catalogue.  These paper stacks are great.  The papers are just slightly larger than a card front so they are much easier to use and store.  There are 48 sheets in the stacks with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  You can check them out when you get your new catalogue.  I have used some of the new Incolors coming out – Hello Honey, and Lost Lagoon.  I also added  Basic Gray and Sahara Sand.

Here you can check out the side views.

Little booties and No, I didn’t have to hand cut these either!  I added some White Baker’s Twine bows.

P1120878

A little Bib with another White Baker’s Twine bow and a Rhinestone to finish it off.

These “card in a box” cards do take some time to create but the whole process is fun.

I have been busy with a lot more creating getting ready for my Catalogue Launch this coming weekend.  I can show you all the creations after the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you are enjoying some creating today.

BLAST OFF – CARD IN A BOX!

Have you seen the ‘Card in a Box’ floating around the internet??? I had to make one.  I did share this on my Facebook page last week because I was so excited to show someone but I thought now I would show you.  If you don’t want to miss seeing some of my creations make sure you have ‘LIKED’ me on Facebook.  My link is on the right hand side.

Anyway, back to the card.  The other reason I was so excited about it was that it was the first time I had used the set ‘Blast Off’.  I love this cute set.  I can’t wait to use it again soon.

Wouldn’t any young boy love this for the Birthday??? I used the ‘Watercolor Wonder’ DSP for this. Who would have thought it would be so cool for it. If you want to make one of these then check Tanya’s blog out here.  She has the video there.  Tanya has the measurements to make these to the Australian standard size envelopes which is great.  This box is just the easiest.  You have to make one yourself.  I have to say decorating the box takes longer than making the actual box.  They are so fun though.

The “box” will fold flat so you can put it in an envelope and it is still fine to post.  Check it out here.  Isn’t it just the cleverest!  I can’t wait to make another one soon.

I have to show you this photo too.  We are getting our bathroom redone at the moment.  My craft room is opposite the bathroom so I thought I would evacuate for a while.  Just as well I did.  The whole top floor of our house is covered in dust from the jack-hammering of the cement.  I had closed the door to my craft room but somehow those tiny specks of dust makes their way through the smallest little cavities.  I moved out to my studio which is out the back of our house.  I just hold my classes here but now I have set up here I think I will stay for a bit.  It’s getting a bit messy already. I am starting to create for an exciting event coming up soon.  That’s a shame you can’t see anything yet!! 🙂

Hope your week is going along OK??? Hope you are getting some time for yourself to create.

Happy Stamping,
