Florist Cards

Here is a quick look at a few of the designs, I make for Flowers Everywhere at Mawson Lakes. Every month, I take in a variety of designs and whom ever is working at the time picks a selection, of what they like. This month I am taking in some Christmas cards to see how they go. These cards are only 3" x 4" (once folded). I do take some time and effort with a couple of the designs - however quicker and easier are often the ones that sell faster. I will try and post another page of designs tonight or tomorrow. For further informations on products used here please contact me or leave a message.

Saturdays Creations

Well, I have found time to make it back. Feels like a miracle - three times in three days. I had a thought that maybe it was time to think about me and create for me for a while and see if that gave me a little more inspiration to put ink to paper (so to speak). It worked. Four creations in less than an hour. It felt great to just sit and potter with little amounts of supplies on the table. Think I will be taking more time for me and backing off on everyone else for just a little while (at least while we are part of the silly season). We shall see what the new year brings.

More Cards

Okay, it is time to share some more creations with you all. The butterfly card has had the ornate border stamped with perfect medium onto vellum and embossed in gold. The butterfly is also done using the same process, except it is not stamped on vellum and stamped directly onto black card stock. Kaszazz, white grossgrain ribbon is used in the middle. The whole card is made on Berry Red card stock

A Paisley Birthday. This card is made using a Rollagraph wheel, Perfectly Paisley. The flowered images have been coloured with Aquacolour Crayons. White rick rack and Purple Bazzill have been used to make the cross section. Happy Birthday has been stamped in Vivid purple.

Lighthouse card. This card was made back in September for a class I do at a community centre. All the images have been stamped in Distress Walnut Stain. Kaszazz, brown with cream stitch ribbon has been used. Oatmeal card and Java are used to back the lighthouse image. The image was stamped directly ontio white then coloured with aquacolor crayons.

Last but not least is a card using Mini Misters. Mini Misters are a little vial with a spray top. You fill them 3/4 with water and add a few drops of ink refiller (and a small amount of perfect pearls - for shine - optional). Here I have used Vivid Inky Blue. The grass is stamped in Olive Chalk ink. The Thinking of you stamp it stamped in Vivid Black and is from the Mini Messages set of stamps
Hope I have given you a few more ideas. For further information on cards, stamps etc, please do not hesitate to leave a message or contact me. Happy Paper Crafting!!!

A4 Frames

These frames have become another favourite for me at the moment. I have decorated quite a few. Two of them have become my favourites. The boy one, has had lots of response. It is possible it will be sent into Kaszazz to become a workshop but am deciding what else to put with it, to make it fit into the time requirements. Any thoughts??

more creations

I have been playing around with different designs for gift card ideas for Christmas. This has become one of my favourite cards to make to put the gift cards into. In between the different designs of paper, there is a pocket. 2 pockets in total. So much fun to make and so many designs possible. Decorating them is easy to, especially with all Kaszazz's co-ordinating cutout sheets, ribbons and embellishments

Busy Month

What a really busy month!!! Lots and Lots going on. Kaszazz have some amazing specials this month that have kept me really busy . Along with some of our products going down in price (thanks to the American dollar!) To top it off, my team got offered a spot at the Northern Stamping and Scrapbooking Fair, at the Playford Civic centre in Elizabeth. We spent many, many hours getting ready and when the day came what an amazing outcome. So many new people, to catch up with. Our 1st large market and no regrets.

For those of you who could not make it to the Fair, this is the card you could have made on the day. It is part of a 2hour workshop that I have submitted to Kaszazz. I am just waiting for it to be approved - then I will show you the rest of the cards.
