It’s been another busy year of crafting here. Thanks for following me along.

I thought I would take a few minutes and share my favourite projects from the past year. So come on a little journey with me. And click on the heading of the project to take you back to the original post and read more about them. Even catch the video of many of them.

Friendly Hello Fun Fold

I loved this gorgeous Friendly Hello Paper available for Sale-A-Bration in January. And this is great fold to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. (Must try that again).

Driving By Slider Card

This was a great stamp set to create a Slider card. But you can try this with any of your stamps. What about that Sunshine and Rainbows paper. So bright and Happy. 🙂

Waves of Inspiration (Moon Effect)

I have loved creating with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and I was so excited when I discovered how to create the moon effect with the stamps.

Half Fold Let’s Set Sail

Let’s face it – Male cards are hard to make aren’t they?? We had a great Masculine Cards Class earlier in the year. The Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch were fun to use.

Wild and Sweet Watercolouring

The Wild and Sweet Stamp set was one of my top picks from the new catalogue in May. I don’t do a lot of colouring but I loved colouring this cute Koala. I shared some tips colouring this image in the video for this card.

Tunnel Cards with Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness was another of my top picks from the catalogue. I think many people also loved this suite. The Tunnel cards I created with this has been very popular.

Winter Crafternoon with Cup of Tea Bundle

The most popular event this year with the Winter Crafternoon. It was such a fun time crafting together followed by a Devonshire Tea. Watch out for more events in the new year.

A Pocket Card with Cup of Tea Bundle

Christmas Lights Diagonal Fold

Another very popular Fun Fold from this year was the Diagonal Fold Card with the Christmas Lights Bundle. Lots of people have shared their versions with me which has been so great.

Hello Hippest Hippos Half Fold Easel Card

Is there a theme here with Fun Folds that are my favourite projects for the year. I do love a Fun Fold card. This one was the Half Fold Easel Card with the Hippest Hippos Stamp set for Sale-A-Bration.

Adventurous Journey for the adventurer

Another great stamp set for the Male cards or the adventurer is the Adventurous Journey stamp set. We had a great class with this stamp set.

Merriest Moments Candle for the 12 Days of Christmas series

It was great to be part of a collaboration to share you some fantastic Christmas projects. I kicked the 12 days series off with my project, A candle with the Merriest Moments stamps and dies. You just have to go back to that post and start the 12 Days of Christmas to check out all the projects.

I hope you have enjoyed looking back at these projects. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming year.

To lots of creating in 2022. Come and join in with me and follow along.

Sharing this card with you today. I had this idea in my head. It didn’t quite turn out the way I had intended. I’m still not sure about it.

The idea was to create a window with the Layering Diorama Dies and using the gorgeous Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper.

With the Layering Diorama Dies cut a piece from the Paper. Move the die around until you are happy with the image inside the frame. The great thing with this is there is no stamping but lots of colour. I wonder if I should have added more colour in the images though??

With that same size die and one smaller cut a frame with the Granny Apple Green print in the pack. Then adhere these 2 pieces together. I actually added Dimensionals under the Green frame to add some extra depth.

On a piece of Granny Apple Green card emboss this with the Gingham Embossing Folder and add this to your white card base. Before adhering your Diorama Frame add some ribbon underneath. Then add your sentiment. And I also used one of little Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Sharing one of the cards today from last week’s video. I showed 5 Ways with the Rainbows of Happiness Stamps and Dies. You can still catch it if you head back a couple of posts or head to Youtube -> HERE.

I had some diecut rainbow off-cuts from other projects and didn’t want to waste them. I backed some of the pretty rainbow paper from the Sunshine and Rainbows DSP for Sale-A-Bration. I used some other of the prints on the rest of the card.

Just a tip: You could create this in to a Shaker card by adding some acetate to the back of the rainbow diecut. Add some dimensionals then some sequins before adhering it to the paper.

The sentiment from Friendly Hello also for Sale-A-Bration was heat embossed in white and then I snipped around it with scissors. I love the pop of black. Don’t forget those Brushed Brass Butterflies.

It’s great with Sale-A-Bration to get those free items with your order. You can check them out in my store -> HERE. Pick your free choice with your $90 or $180 order. You can shop there too if you are in Australia.

Happy Stamping,
