3D projects, Classes, Stampin' Up!


Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you all.  I hope that the weekend will be a great one with those you love and that you remember the greatest act of Love we have been given as we celebrate this time.

Last post I shared some cute Easter baskets.  I thought I would share another Easter bag as well as some Easter tags.  It’s not too late to whip these up right! This bag and the basket from last post plus these 2 tags are ones we made at my Easter class last week.


This little treat bag was inspired by a project I found on Pinterest but you can find the tutorial HERE. It’s very easy to make.  For mine I decorated it with the chick from ‘Honeycomb Happiness’.  This is such a great image for Easter don’t you think?  I stamped it on Shimmery White and coloured it with the Crushed Curry inkpad and the aquapainter. I cut the image with the Circles Framelits and layered it on a Crushed Curry card cut with the ‘Deco Labels’ Framelits.  The strip of DSP is from the ‘It’s My Party’ Paper Stack. I decided to stamp the greeting on Vellum in Black Stazon so it didn’t cover the chick too much. The greeting is from the ‘Easter Lamb’ stamp.  On the bag I punched the corners of the card with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and added a slit with the punch too. I embossed the card with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder too. Cute!

Inside there is a separate little box that you adhere to the inside.  It is so easy.


We made a similar tag.  This time I cut some of the DSP with the Deco Labels Framelits and I cut one with Whisper White as well to adhere together for added strength and also to have white card to write on the back.

I added a White Cotton Ribbon bow and some White Baker’s Twine to hang from it.


This next tag we made was using the Easter Lamb stamp.  So cute.  The lamb was stamped on Sahara Sand and coloured with the White Gel Pen after it was  cut with the Circles Framelits. I cut some DSP from the Bohemian DSP with the ‘Lots of Labels’ Framelits and also a larger one from Bermuda Bay.  I tied through some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine. A little flower was added punched in Crushed Curry with the ‘Itty Bitty Accents’ Punch Pack. The greeting is from ‘Teeny Tiny Sentiments’ and I cut this one with the Bitty Banners Framelits.


Now you can whip these up in no time – or file them away for next year 😉

Have a lovely Easter time.  Visit again soon,



cards, Sale-A-Bration


I was playing around with some Sale-A-Bration products the other day.  Here is one of the cards I made.


You could pick out a few Sale-A-Bration choices on this card – The ‘Best Year Ever DSP’, the ribbon from the ‘Best Year Ever Accessory Pack’ and the the stamp set ‘Big Day’.  The “Big Day” image was stamped on some Whisper White card in Coastal Cabana and punched the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  I punched the top of a piece of Coastal Cabana card too with the punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I tied off some ribbon and Pom Pom trim and then layered it on a piece of the DSP which had been adhered to the Calypso Coral base card. To colour the words I stamped the “Big Day” image onto some Crushed Curry card and cut out just the banner to adhere over the top and then coloured the “CAKE” word with Blender Pens and inkpad. The cake image was simply stamped in black onto Crushed Curry card and punched with the 1 3/8″ circle punch I think it was.

I will show you a close-up.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds to make it sparkle. 🙂


Sale-A-Bration is quickly flying by.  Only a couple of weeks left.  Have you picked up your free Sale-A-Bration product yet with your $90 order?  If you haven’t, you better hurry.  I don’t want you missing out on Freebies!! You can shop online (link is in the right hand column) OR drop me an email with your order.  I am happy to send it anywhere in Australia.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I always love you visiting. 🙂




I know I said I would  post about my swaps I received and this is the second post today and still no swap photos.  I am getting there but I just had to show you this card I made yesterday.  I was really excited about it.  This is using a stamp set coming out in the new Catalogue called ‘Kinda Eclectic”. We received this at Convention last week and I just had to play with it yesterday. P1120747

I cut a window from the Whisper White card.  It would be easy with the Square Framelits but I didn’t have them with me at our stamp day yesterday.  I cut the square out using my Stampin’ Trimmer. This piece I then embossed using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. The starburst image in the window is stamped with Baked Brown Sugar Ink.  The butterflies are stamped with Crisp Canteloupe.  It is great that these fit the current Butterfly Punches (the Elegant Punch and the Bitty Butterfly Punch)!!! The leaf image I stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out freehand.  The Birthday greeting is from Apothecary Art and stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I snipped the ends of the greeting piece into banners.  A little bling goes a long way to finish it off.

Hope you like this.  I can see lots of uses with this set.  I will play again soon. OK, I will show you my swaps next post. 🙂

These last couple of months have just flown by.  I feel Sale-A-Bration has only just begun.  If you feel like me and think you have got plenty of time to get your Sale-A-Bration freebies then THINK AGAIN!!! These products won’t be available again (which is very sad BTW!)  If you haven’t checked out the Sale-A-Bration brochure yet then click on the link in the right hand column.  If you’re local why not come to my ‘Celebrate Sale-A-Bration’ Event.  Here are the details.


Come and join us to celebrate.  We will make 2 cards, have fun have a cuppa and there will be giveaways.

So if you are in the Wollongong area.  Why not join us.  I Look forward to seeing lots of you there.
Here is one of the cards we might be making.  I thought it would be good to pull out the Wisteria Wonder for a change.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a good day 🙂


One of the great features with the Stampin’ Up! products that I think many people love is how great they co-ordinate together.  Card, ink, ribbons co-ordinate.  Stamp sets co-ordinate with punches and dies.  What about stamp sets co-ordinating with other stamp sets??? Well, this new little stamp set available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue looks great when used on it’s own but how great is it when you combine it with one of the other stamp sets!


The small flowers are from the new stamp set ‘Petite Petals’.  There are 6 little flower stamps in the set plus there is a matching punch.  They are very cute on their own BUT why not layer them! Here I have added them with a flower from the ‘Flower Shop’ set.  For this card I have used some of the new DSP ‘Watercolor Wonder’. Absolutely gorgeous paper. You must grab some of this.  The colours and images are just beautiful.  The problem is though that each side is so beautiful it seems a shame to cover up one side to use on a card!  On the card I have also used the new Embossing Folder – Decorative Dots.  You can grab one of these for Free during Sale-A-Bration with a $90 order.  You will need that Embossing Folder too.  The greeting on this card is from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’. This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

Hope you like what you see!!!

Would you like your own copy of the upcoming Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure?? Let me know and I can send one directly to you. I am mailing them out now. (Australian Residents only).  You will be able to check out these products I have used on this card PLUS so many more great products. Don’t forget the freebies you can get during Sale-A-Bration with your $90 order!

Thanks for stopping by,

I have been playing with some new goodies.  You are going to love some of these new products coming out in the new Occasions catalogue.  The dilemma was what to play with first!  I did play around with some of the other stamps but thought I would show you this card first.  This stamp is from the stamp set ‘Happy Watercolor’ that will be out soon.  It has some great images.  You know the great thing about this set is that if you find watercolouring difficult this makes it so easy.  In the set are a couple of “splodges” if you like to call them that and you can just stamp over the image to create a watercolour wash.  No need for detailed watercolouring although you can still do that if you choose.  Too easy!!!


Doesn’t this make you think of Ice-Cream???  LOL  Maybe it’s just the heat getting to me!

I have also used the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  You can create tags any length you like.  Plus check out the Embossed Background.  This is using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder that you will be able to choose for Free during Sale-A-Bration! How cool is it!!  Colours used are Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar. I have just added a Linen Thread bow to finish it off and the greeting is from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’.

This is one of the cards you will be able to make at my ‘Upcoming Birthday Card Buffet’.  All the details you can find in this post here.  It is on February 8th.  Places are booking out fast so if you want to join us you better book in quickly.

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you are surviving the extreme weather conditions wherever you are.  In Australia we are having heatwaves but I have heard of all the extreme storms and cold in the UK and the US.  Stay safe!
