Hi Heidi. Heidi is a new member, of my team. Heidi, contacted Kaszazz, who referred her to me, early last week. I met with her on Tuesday afternoon and by Wednesday, late in the evening, her consultant application was approved. By Thursday, Heidi received her consultant starter kit. (Heidi, joined under the full price $250.00 option). Oh, it is great bonus to be living in little old Adelaide!!!!

My team is growing quickly. In just over a year, I have signed up 4 new consultants. All of which, were not customers. It has been a wonderful journey. I really do hope it continues. I am enjoying every minute of being a consultant. The journey has lead me to meet some wonderful, people who share the same passion. We have learnt new techniques, played with new products and shared ideas. Kaszazz is my way of staying sane. My way of tuning out to the rest of the world and its busy, hectic way. If anyone would like to know more please feel free to contact me. I am here to share my journey with you!!


I got my Scraponizer, last Thursday. I was so excited. I immediately unpacked it and filled it with most of my essentials. I had lots of trouble deciding which paper to decorate it in. Finally I decided on some paper from Kaszazz's Enchanted range. I used the Rouge Fleur paper. I originally had in my head that i would use the fleur side. However, I was in such a rush, to decorate, that the other side seemed more practical, as I would not have to spend too much time lining up the pattern (and possibly using up more paper than necessary). I did still want to use the fleur side, so I used it on the spine of the plastic storage containers. I used some white dots ribbon (from the Snow White ribbon pk), some small rhinestones and some punched out butterflies to decorate. I also used a rectangle note journal aid from the Enchanted range to note down all the things in my scraponizer.
I am most impressed with this item. It does fit more in it than I orginally thought it might. Thank you Kaszazz, for giving us, consultants, a fantastic product (once again), to be able to share with our customers. What a fantastic time to be part of the Kaszazz team!!!!

2 step Butterfly with Words

This card just happened. I was stamping out my 2 step butterfly with the idea I was going to emboss the overlay, then realised that was not going to happen the way I was imagining. Next thing I could see words behind the butterfly and thought I should stamp the script background over the butterfly. I used a post it note and traced around the stamped image, cut it out, and then put the cut out on the stamped image. I then inked up the script Background stamp and stamped it over the top of the butterfly image (with the post it note still over the top). Finally I removed the cut up post it note. I think it turned out rather well.

I have used a scrap piece of white card for the butterfly and word images. The ink I have used for the butterfly base is........ The butterfly outline is done in........... Finally, the script background stamp was inked in Distress Ink Walnut Stain. A piece of Parakeet Bazzill is used behind the white scrap piece and a piece of timber/cream mini gingham is wrapped around the white stamped paper. I have used a piece of mahogany A5 card available in the castaway card pk.

Love and Cherish Lace Cards

Once I finished stamping the bookmarks, i had a thought that the image would look great on black card with white ink. I wanted the middle image to look brighter, so, I decided to emboss it in white embossing powder. However, I forgot to use my static pillow and got speckly bits where i did not want them. That should teach me!! (LOL). Lets see, I used black a5 card, Frost White colorbox ink and white top boss embossing powder. From this, I had an image of a taller card, with the image in pink shades. So, I used white 8" x 8" card folded in half. I have then pulled out my Rose Petal colorbox inks, and used the Rouge and Warm Red.

Love and Cherish Lace stamp

I love this "lacy" looking stsmp. I have been hanging out to have a chance to stamp it in an array of colours. Saturday night gave me the opportunity to just have a play. Out came the distress inks and the stamp. I started off making some bookmarks. I was impressed with how simple and elegant the stamp looks in any colour. I have used Distress Ink in Black Soot (black), Faded Jeans (blue), Fired Brick (red), Shabby Shutters (green) and Tattered Rose (pale pink).

Ok, here are the other two cards that are part of the "Fancy Fold Trio Workshop". The date for this 2 hour workshop........23rd August 7:30pm the cost will be $25 per person. I am sorry I did not get a chance to post it until now. Life has been a little crazy. I am doing a fundraiser for Mawson Lakes Preschool on Friday night and I have not even had a chance to look at what we might do as a make and take. Good thing I have a lot of supplies on hand, just for that kind of situation. Now, back to the workshop. If you would like more details please leave a comment and I will get back to you asap or alternatively send me an email ( Have fun crafting....until next time.....

I thought it might be time to do another workshop. So, with a little bit of time on my hands, I searched through the long list of ideas and decided it might be time to do something a little different. So, here it is - a shoe. This "shoe" is part of the fancy fold card trio workshop that I will be holding in a few weeks. For more information and the other 2 card designs stay tuned. I should be able to confirm details before Tuesday. (Just have to re-juggle a few dates on my calender).
