Invitation Ideas

Here are two invitations I designed very quickly. The DL (long thin) size card, is my least favourite. The other is a joy fold card. I love this. I think you could put lots of different things on the front panel. In this case, maybe, who it was that was inviting you to their wedding (for example Alicia and Scott would like to invite you to......). On the inside you could put the details (where, time, date, etc). The design would be easy to adapt to run in either direction and to make it larger would not be difficult. I have more ideas playing around in my head. So, with a little more time, maybe you will get to see more.

Aluminium Wedding Card

At the Clipsal Christmas in July party I attended with Hubby on Friday night, I met up with a wife of one of hubby's work colleges who has telling me about her ideas for her up coming wedding. From her ideas and suggestions I had a hundred ideas playing around in my head. With the short amount of time I had spare over this busy weekend, I have managed to through a couple of them together. The congratulations card, is one I had made before. I love running aluminium through the cuttlebug. All products for this card are available through Kaszazz (except the aluminium and the cuttlebug embossing folder)

Still Playing

Hi All, I had a brief moment last night were I got to have a play once again. I was thinking of my perfect pearls with some glossy paper and Kaszazz's Lucy Stamps Treasured Memories. Once again the photo is not doing justice to the shininess of the perfect pearls. I think it turned out rather well. I have seen lots of designs using these particular stamps (from this set), used in very similar ways. Hope I have not ripped any ones idea!! Have Fun Crafting - Till Next Time!

Perfect Pearl

Kids are already in bed (about 7:20pm). The house is quiet and hubby has knicked off to Bunnings. I am on my own fiddling with some Perfect Pearls that I have not played with for a long time. While I was playing, i found myself pulling out my cuttlebug and some embossing folders. Before I knew it, I had my perfect medium pen colouring in the embossing (made by the cuttlebug) and I was then dusting over my perfect pearls. I am impressed. I think it turned out quite well, for a freakish Wednesday evening. So I am sharing a lot quicker than I had expected. Sorry about the photo. I do not think it does justice to the card or the perfect pearls used. Have a great evening and who knows with any luck I will be back tomorrow...... (LOL!!!)


Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. School holidays have thrown the little system I had,out of wack. However, I am now back! I have a few things to share with you which I will do over the coming days/week. We have just had a few, extra curriculum activities thrown into our daily lives, which I am hoping to be able to work around so I can still blog at least once a week (at least - this is the new plan).

These are a few pages I have been working on, in my spare moments over the two weeks that children had home from school. I was hoping I would be further along with them, but nevertheless, here they are. All the paper shown, is from a Spice Cut n Crop, exclusive to Kaszazz. Sonia Gibson, has designed the particular Cut n Crop layouts that are supplied in the pack. I have adapted her designs slightly, to work with the photos I had in mind. I am pleased with how they are coming along. Each of the pages you see here, have a co ordinating pages that matches (making them a double spread). If I get time I will post these pages soon. Have fun crafting - Talk soon.

Just a Little Note

My sister Bec, needed a card this week, for a customer. (Bec is a tupperware demonstrator). The customer has just had surgery and Bec just wanted her to know she was thinking about her. So, I decided it was time to use up some of my scrap pieces of paper. I found some purple bazzill and some lighter purple bazzill that was just the right size and some organdy ribbon. I purchased the butterfly punch last week (through Kaszazz) and I was thinking of every excuse to use it. So, here it is used on this card. I think it turned out rather nice. Such a simple design, that worked. Hope you like it too?!!


The past few weeks have been full of birthdays. So, needless to say I have been busy making cards for those who have had a birthday. 4 Birthday's to be exact. One card I made twice, so design time was cut down just a little. 3 out of the 4 were made with all Kaszazz products. The fourth was made with some products I had lying around the house - I believe Felicity gave them to me to finish off a basketball page. Thanks Felicity. It was nice to be able to make cards for people I know, instead of just for the fun of it. Thinking about what that person likes made it alot easier to design the cards.

Bon Voyage

Here is another card I made for a card swap a few months ago. I really like it. I have used a piece of map/chocolate paper from the rustic range. Three stamps have been used. Two are from Stamp it (which Kaszazz sells). These are the small luggage stamp (called Travels) and the bon voyage stamp (called Bon Voyage). The third stamp is an unmounted stamp from the Lucy's stamp range. It is the small Postcard stamp. I have used tombow pens to colour in the suitcases and hat. I have learnt to water down and blend the colours, using a plastic surface (ice cream, butter, etc or an acrylic block). Rub the tombow over the surface and then, run the blender in the ink, colour in the stamped image. It is a little more time consuming but adds a great finish to an inked image. Have fun creating!!!
