Josh Pretending to be Harry

Well, with the kids home and less running around to do and lots to finish before Christmas, I took sometime to complete a page for Josh. This year, he became obsessed with Harry Potter. And for a while (about three months in the middle of the year), he took, to dressing like Harry and taking his wand everywhere. This photo was taken at our nephew Jack's 1st birthday in August.

I started off with a piece of vanillia, coffee and Essential card. Spritzed the vanilla with Gold Glow smooch spritz and some pumice stone refill in a mini mister. Stamping done in Vintage photo and Barn Door Distress Inks. Chipboard covered with Frayed Burlap and Walnut stain Distress inks. Buttons are from the earth tone set.

What was supposed to be a quick Secret Santa Gift....

Oh boy, did this take way longer than expected. Hubby came home last night from work and asked me to "whip up a quick sliding card for a time out bar". I laughed at him. At 8pm he asked when I was going to start as he needed it for this morning. So after some playing with measurements and designs 3.5 hours later, this was the finished product. Not quite what I would have done. However, hubby kept giving me details as I was in creative mode and things had to keep changing. Lots of fun to make (and lots of tape later), this was the final product.

Massive apologies for being away for so long. Life has taken some interesting turns in the last month. All is getting there slowly. Unfortunately I am not sure I will not have a lot of time for this blog over the next two or three weeks. I will get back asap, after New Years, In the meantime, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very safe, happy, and healthy New Year. I am looking forward to getting back in to full time crafting, so hopefully I will have lots of new and fun things to show you in the coming year.

2H1008 Whimsical Pop Up Christmas Cards

2H1008 Whimsical Pop Up Christmas Cards Created by Kate Norris.  These are one off the newest projects that have become available to do.  I had fun today putting them together, and cannot wait to get together with a group of ladies to show them how lovely these cards really are.  They are simplier than they look.  Great cutting skills is the most important skill needed.  If you have never heat embossed before, you will soon be an expert as each of the images are gold embossed.

just a quickie

Here is the latest card I made for the Kaszazz Creative Challenge on Facebook.  This card was designed off a sketch.  NEXT challenge is Christmas.  Anything Christmassy, as long as it is all Kaszazz.  Can be as simple as a tag or card.  I am sure, everyone has something to share with this challenge

Black Purple and Orange Combo

I have seen lots of projects in this colour combo recently.  Mainly Halloween projects.  I have loved the colour combo but was not really thrilled with the idea of doing something halloween themed.  This is what I came up with, using black embossing again.  (Mainly because it was still on the table from yesterday.).  I Love the Sakura Kaszazz stamps.  This large one, is one of my favs.  It has so many uses and looks amazing with very little work.

Black Embossing Powder...

This morning, I had the sudden urge to play with Black embossing powder.  Why?  I have no idea.  But none, the less, I got the jar of powder out and played.  This is what I came up with.  Not exactly what I was expecting. Sometimes that is a good thing.  I have had fun and enjoyed playing and that is the best part of creating.  Who knows this might lead to me having more fun with Black embossing.

Anything but Square or Rectangle Card Challenge

Well, this took my a while to work out what I was going to do. After some searching and finding lots of detailed patterns, I decided to alter one to make it a lot simpler and easier to make.  I am really happy with the finished card.  I have used paper from the Enchanted range, sticky bling and dotty organdy ribbon and Distress ink (of course).  Nothing is really complete without distress ink.  Or is that just me lol...?

This is a really simple design.  Nothing too hard.  I have also made one in Christmas papers.  Unfortunately a friend has borrowed it, to show her mum. So, no photo to share just yet.

Well, I made it back.  Glossy card has come to my "need to have" list.  I am falling in love with it all over again. Not as easy to stamp on. BUT boy can you get some amazing looks with different inks.  These cards were "just me playing".  I am so impressed with how they turned out.  There is another 9 that go with them.  Loving the amazing look glossy can give.  I am looking at writing these up as a workshop.  So, if you would like to make them please let me know and we can organise a time to play.

Sonya Edwards Glossy Guitar Card, that was made to show case at Team Training Day, was my inspiration to playing with glossy.  So if you would like to see this card made please, let me know and we can organise a make and take/Demo get together.  This amazing card is below:

Sketch Challenge No1

Well, tonights class got cancelled due to low numbers and it is being postponed to next week. So, I have had time to catch up on a few things and get a head start on others. On the Facebook group Kaszazz Creative Challenge, I had set a sketch challenge. Which I first thought would be really easy. Well, I was kidding myself. This card too ages and I am still not really happy with it. I can see a few things I would change. However, the important thing is I attempted it and gave it a go.

Cute little bag - Kaszazz Creative Challenge

Life has been busy passing me by, for quite sometime. Trying to catch up on things that mean alot have started to take priority. Thank goodness. Family has become my number one (this includes really close friends) and crafting is right up there at number two. So here is my latest little creation. This cute little bag was made for the Kaszazz Creative Challenge Group on Facebook. This challenge was a BINGO challenge. (to find out more pop on over to the group). I found this more difficult than I first thought it was going to be. However, after lots of not so interesting creations, I came up with this little bag. Really simple and fun to make.

Now, for all those who have asked hubby is doing better. Not great but better.
He is back at work and walking without assistance. Hobbling and still
with pain. Only time will tell how successful the operation was.

Good news. Team Training day will be upon us again really soon. I will be hosting TTD again. YAY. Love these events. Lots of fun and amazing Kaszazz consult

ants to spend the whole day with. If you would like to know more about this event, please feel free to contact me and I will pass on as much detail as I possibly can.

Project In the works

well, here are a few of the workshops, I have been playing with and testing, with a group of wonderful ladies I teach every Monday. I am still working on perfecting the instructions. Then there will be more testing. (And possibly more writing). I love creating. That is were my passion lies. I live for the moments of quietness, that allows me to spend time with my supplies and my images that fly around in my head. I would love my day to be filled with nothing but time to create and play with ideas and products. To get paid for that would be my ultimate dream. However, that is a dream that is a long long long way off from happening.

An Interesting Week

this week has brought a few extra challenges to our lives. Hubby had surgery on Tuesday, and will now be off of work for a minimum of two weeks (most likely six weeks - still to be determined). He is home now and is recovering slowly. This has meant, I have had to slow things down with classes from home and me running about. I will be back up and running at usual pace as soon as things slow down here.

My boys start school holidays in just over a week and that will hopefully mean I will be able to get back into my favourite room to craft to my hearts content. (Only time will tell).

I have a few projects that I have had fun playing with. If time allows I will pop past and post some pics for you.

Classes will be running (hopefully) from next week and over the holidays. As, soon as I have had a chance to look at the new projects on line I will let you know what we will be up too.

Oh, while I remember, If you are fan of Kaszazz on facebook, you may have been lucky enough to see my double layout of my niece. Kaszazz are using it as an advertisement for new projects. I was really excited to see it there.

Until, I have a chance to pop back, have fun crafting

Facebook and the suitcase.

Hi all, if you are a consultant and have found yourself taken off my friends list on facebook, please do not take it personally. I have decided to keep my personal life and Kaszazz business/hobby as two seperate parts of my life. As, they should be. I still have by Kaszazz Creative Challenge group and you will find me there if you need me or wish to converse with me in anyway. My life is needing me to step back and re assess what is important. MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CREATING are really high on my list of priorities. I am still running my regular workshops from home on Friday evenings and my community class on Monday afternoons. If you would like to know more about these please let me know and I will pass on the details.
SUITCASE. This little creation has had me email bombarded with lots of emails and lots of comments and discussions on Facebook. I have therefore decided I will write it up as a workshop, test it and submit it as soon as possible. Please give me some time to do this. I am going to have to work out how to make it fit into the specs for a workshop. And the timing needs to be perfected for a group activity.
Have fun creating
Until next time

I've been busy.... Creating

Got to love long cold weekends. I have had an amazing time hanging out with family and doing all the wonderful indoor things. Which ment I had a great opportunity to finish this fortnights challenge early. This fortnights challenge was DISTRESS. I had no idea what I was going to do. After lots of thinking and getting prepared to start another double layout, I came across a cute little suitcase in a magazine and all the measurements were the. I had to give it ago, and managed to do it all in Kaszazz products. I got so carried away with how cute the suitcase turned out, I lined it and made a little fold out book to go with it. I distress all the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. The straps for the suitcase are covered in distress crackle paint. The little books edges have all been distress with the distress tool and vintage photo distress ink. I had a blast making this project. Now to decide what to do with it. (oh, if you are interested all the words and images are travel rubons).

Blue and White Inspired Cards

These cards were created for the Kaszazz Creative Challenge Page on Facebook. The theme for this fortnight is Asian/Oriental, any creation you like (as long as it is using all Kaszazz products). I was a little lost at what to do. However, when going through a stack of dishes, I was inspired to stamp a page in all blues with the new asian inspired stamp range. I had lots of fun deciding on what inks to use. In the end Distress Inks won. Five shades of blue have been used. Copen Stain ribbon and Antique Rhinestone Brads and Crystal Ice Stickles have finished off the cards.
