Inside Goody Bags

Well, a few days ago, I said I would show you what was inside the goody bags.  The lovely ladies found one of  these beautiful bright candy striped twines and a NEW (unused, the stamp here is mine and it has been used) vintage butterfly stamp and a mini fun sized mars bar.   It was great to see the surprise on their faces when they opened their little bags and found new products in them.  I also, got a great response for the new packaging. The packaging will soon be found on most of our products.  I think it is cute.  I love it alot more than the old branding.

The twine is wrapped around these really cute tiny cotton wheels.  I have lots of ideas for them.  Just need to use up some more twine so I can put the ideas into play.  SO SO SO cute.  I will be back with more to show you really soon.

Have fun crafting

TTD Make and Take and Demonstration Cards

Ok, here are the three cards that all the wonderful ladies that attended my TTD, got to see.  I demonstrated, the girl on a swing sunset card and the happy butterfly card. Then the ladies, got to make the bird on a wire card, using the beautiful new masking tape.  You could make this card for free by booking your own demonstration/get together.  So easy and a great use of the masking tape.  I am sure you will see lots of masking tape used on many projects coming up.  It is self adhesive. Sticks beautifully and looks amazing.  It comes in some great designs.

Here I Come!!! Watch out Melbourne

YEP, I am going!!! Confirmation just came through.   I cannot believe it!!  My little white fluffy cloud just got enormous.  lol... Now to organise the rest of the details.   THANKS KASZAZZ, you are about to rock my little world.

Closer to a big Dream coming true

I cannot explain my excitement this afternoon after opening an email from Kaszazz.  I am still sitting on a little cloud pinching myself.  Now,its time to take the plunge.

For those who know my passion for creating would also know I have a massive passion for all things "TIM HOLTZ" related.  Inks, books, videos, you tube, embossing powders and the new markers.  The list goes on.  Well, thanks to Kaszazz I am a massive step closer to meeting this amazingly creative man.

So, with a little more luck, the next email I send will get me through the door to be in the same room as Tim Holtz.  WOW.  The invitation has ment more to me than I thought it would.  I am crossing fingers and toes and praying to the creative gods.  Hopefully we will find out more early next week.

So a massively gigantic thank you to all my amazing customers and team who have helped me get this far.  Creative dreams can come true if you believe and work hard.  Passion helps. LOL....

Cute Little Bags

Team Training Day was held this nationally this weekend.  It was awesome.  I had the best time.  And the most exciting news is the unbelievable products that Kaszazz has released.  In the five years I have been with Kaszazz I have not seen the anything like this.  Totally lovable, and fully amazing embellishments, papers and stamps.  The ladies, were blown away with what I had to show them.  And the new catalogue - WOW!!!!! it is beautiful, amazing and inspiring.  I cannot wait to share it with all the paper loving crafters I know.  This is going to be a complete joy to share.  

The little bags are what I made to thank those that attended my TTD.  Inside, they found their "thanks for coming" gift and a little treat (a mars bar).  More on the thanks for coming gift, tomorrow.  

Over the coming days I will share with you the amazing creations we got to see and make at TTD. I am sure they are going to inspire and amaze you.  I think Kaszazz is taking a huge leap, and it is going to pay off in a huge way.

I will be back real soon.

Asian Cards

Well, I made it back with another of my challenge projects to share.  This time, it was to make something using three items from a bingo board.  I chose to use bling, double sided paper and Spritz.  A card is what I started out making.  while making the card, I decided to see how many cards I could make out of the one sheet of double sided paper.  Few extra products were used to make the other cards.  I had a group of ladies turn up and they loved making these cards. (Not the class we had planned, they opted to make the class we had planned at another time).

Humming bird paper was used on all the cards.  White A5 card was used for the base of all the cards.  Charcoal and Ladybird essential 12 x12 are the colours of the co - ordinating papers.  Kaszazz branded chalk basics were used to colour the humming bird stamped flower (set of stamps).  White grossgrain ribbon and stazon jet black ink are used for finishing touches..

Pink, Green and White Challenge

Well, I took some time out today to try and get ahead on some creations that I wanted to get done.  Not what needed to be done.  (And trust me there is a lot that "need" to be done).  Since the release of the new papers, that co ordinate with the Asian range of stamps and paper, I have been hanging to cut it up and create.  So, I took full advantage of the time I had and headed straight for these papers.  Have you seen them?... They are different and unique.  The colours are not my usual tones.  I LOVED playing.

The Lotus Blossom paper has been distressed using the distressing tool and then inked with Old Paper Distress Ink.  (this ink, has a green tinge that I just adore, it works really well with this paper).  Both sides have been used. Three shades of green essential 12 x12 papers, white essential 12 x12 and two shades of pink.  For the exact shades feel free to contact me.  The romantic curves and leafy flourish dies have been used and the beautiful white crocheted flowers have been died in the centres with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.  Antique Pearl brads have finished off the page (in each corner and in the centre of the flowers), along with a strip of white lace ribbon.

More to show soon.

Market Day at Mawson Lakes

While I am here, I thought I would let you know that I will be at this fab, market on Saturday.  Due to the new release approaching (for more info, see the post below), I will be having a spot set up with lots of deleted/no longer available products and amazingly low prices.  Come along and grab yourself a bargain.  Only available while stocks last.  First in first served.  Some of the stock, will be hard to say good bye to.  However, with saying good bye, comes new exciting adventures.


Hi Big wide world.  It feels like forever since I have popped past to share some creative love.  The creativity around here has been a little slow.  Life has gotten in the way. As it so often does.  I am happy to say I have a few things sitting here to share with you over the coming days.  I have missed inking a stamp and putting it to paper.  And just cutting up a sheet of paper to see what can be made from it.  It always surprises me,  that being creative and allowing myself to feel free with the creativity seems to help with everyday stress and helps block out the "other things" going on in the world.  As I am sure you have heard/read me say/write before, I am not sure what I would do without the creativity.

The last few months have been really full on.  We have had illness, birthdays and other celebrations that have just taken up soooooo much time. Finally spending just a few hours doing something I love helped me feel human again.  Not just a "mum" or "housewife".  I can be me.  I can break from everyday routine and feel like I have a purpose of some sort.  Ok, it is not ground breaking, nor is it going to win me any grand prizes or is it going to make my mark on the world, but it is for me.  Funny, how doing something for yourself and no one else makes you feel grounded.  Doing everyday tasks do not seem so big.

Ok, the lesson has been learnt again.  And I am sure it will not be the last time.

Now on to the big exciting news.  Lots is happening with Kaszazz.  And let me tell you it is going to be a big exciting Kaszazz release on the 14th May.  A new direction for products.  I have been extremely luck to see what is coming and I cannot believe how thrilled I am that finally Kaszazz's designs are up there with some of the big names in the crafting world.

How's this for a sneak peak?  

So many changes are about to happen.  I feel it, everytime I look at the new products layed out before me.  Exciting things.  With change comes a little saddness, some of the lovely products we have come to love in our Kaszazz range are being deleted.  If you would like to know more about what is being deleted or has already been deleted, please leave me a comment or contact me asap.  Time is running out to get the few things that are still available for a short time.

With saying goodbye, a big new exciting catalogue will be release upon the crafting world.  As of yet, I have not seen it.  However, I am sure with the amount of products leaving our range, Kaszazz, is sure to fill the gaps, with new amazing and inspiring products.

BIG NEWS  DISTRESS MARKERS are now available for purchase.  I am hanging out to get mine.  I so want to play.  If these amazing markers are on your NEED TO OWN list please let me know asap.  I will be more than happy to help you out.

I am going now, to photograph, the projects sitting here, so I can share the creative love. lol...
Catch you soon.
