Excuses Excuses

I have been so busy for the past few months I have been unable to update. It is a combinations of being extremely unwell and busy with classes. The classes are fun, and I am now making projects for upcoming classes in early 2012. I will take some sample photos to give you a sneak peek.

I will be making videos again soon, but they will be a when I have time not once a week. However I will do my best.

Will be back soon with those photos :)

Musical Floral Card

For The Paper Players - Musical Theme Challenge this week I have made a card using musical notes, and inspired by one of my favorite songs The JaneDear Girls - Wildflower.


I used the Music Wheel, Teeny Tiny Sentiments and the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set to make this card.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long Pt 2 - 2/10/11

Here is the card that goes with the Pt 1 colouring of the design video I made (not very good, but oh well). I love how this card came out. The Elements of Style stamp set was not very loved, but now I see it in a whole new light.

Colour Q - cQc #104 Challenge

I really loved the Colour Q challenge this week, they inspired me to use a wheel stamp I have been admiring for a while. The new Henry Wheel has so many possibilities, now it's just figuring them out.

I clear embossed the sentiment, I think it was the longest decision I had to make. I tried so many other ways but nothing gave the result I wanted.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long - Part 1 28/9/11

This is the first part to this Sundays card. It is colouring a design with ink pads and a blending pen.

To add this onto the video on Sunday would extend the video past the available time.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 25/9/11

Well I must say for this Sunday Stamp-a-Long I discovered too late that I had forgotten to show the stamp sets at the start of the video...Oops my bad.

I have written them onto the video, but when I release the instructions they will all be listed there. The instructions for this card are still about a week away, I have been flat out and need to allocate some time to write them out.


       

WooHoo I Won :)

I have won my first ever card challenge, and it was through The Paper Players. It is an awesome feeling, I have only entered a few challenges, but to be selected is great.


Thanks to The Paper Player DT for selecting my card

Lovin' The Aviary

I have only just got this stamp set not long back, and I have loved it since seeing it. I had to really think of a design that my class would love and I would be happy teaching. I was happy with the result and lucky for me it suited this weeks challenge The Paper Players

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 18/9/11

When making this card I wanted to do the colour palette for the ColorQ challenge. However once I started the video, I didn't really like the poppy parade so I deleted it and kept the card Temping Turquoise, Basic Grey and Whisper White.

So many things went wrong while doing this card, it was like it wasn't meant to be.

ColorLab Color Challenge #54


I created this card for the ColorLab challenge.

I used the stamp set Summer Solstice which I received yesterday, and love it. I also decided to use the Occasions Alphabet, after saying to a friend that I really needed to get it out and use it. On the best side, I think my class on Thursdays will like this one (they love a lot of ink) which is fantastic because so do I.

HSS Fall Themed Challenge Entry #84

I love oranges and dark browns together, so when I saw the HSS Fall Themed Challenge I knew it was one that I would love creating a card to suit the theme. On the upside one of my classes absolutely loved it as well, which made me happy, they will be making it next term.

I used an Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso combination in combination with the Simply Soft stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 11/9/11

Well time for another Stamp-a-Long....yay

This card was so fast to make and a lot of fun. I love a card that requires no thinking at all, you just do it and it's done. Once again I used my favorite Hostess Stamp Set Precious Butterflies, and the Simply Soft set as well. I just love these sets for this year.

Cupcake Fun

I have had the cupcake punch and Create a Cupcake stamp set for a while, and as much as I wanted to use it, I could never think of what to do with it. I have finally come up with a simple card, that is available for classes or workshops.

ColorLab Color Challenge #53

I decided to try the colour challenge ColorLab just to give it a try.

I used a stamp set (Day Of Gratitude) that I received as a gift from a friend, not sure how old it is but it is one of my new favorites. I know it isn't in the Australian catty this year but somewhere others will have it, so why not demonstrate something with it.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 4/9/11

Here is another Sunday Stamp-a-Long project, I had a lot of fun putting this one together. I love the new in-colours for this year.

If you would like a certain stamp set used, please leave a comment and I will see what I can create.


My Father's Day Gift

This is a homemade favor box that I made for my dad. I am not a real believer in mothers or fathers day, I feel that it is just a way for store to make money, so we decided to make a gift instead.

The stamp was is not from Stampin' Up!, but it suited the BBQ we are having tomorrow for lunch. All the other supplies are from Stampin' Up. It has been coloured with the Stampin Write markers (rough, but not bad for my first time), on watercolour paper.

My Goodie Hoard

Well I love getting new stamps, and mine have arrived. I was in the middle of making Sundays Stamp-a-Long video when the post man brought me my big bundle of love. I am so happy right now.

I thought I would share my joy with everyone who watches me :), if you live in Australia and see anything you must have, contact me to place an order.

Retired Stamp Set Designs

I will be making a few cards and displaying them using retired stamp sets. I love some of the retired sets, and I would hate for them to be shelved and hidden from the world, so I have decided that many people own them and if not they are obtainable if desired.

I will have a page accessible from the sidebar that will have my retired card designs, but all cards will be available to be purchased as Pre-Stamped Card Kits.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 28/8/11

I love this card, when it was made I didn't realize that the jumbo brads were become retired. Precious Butterflies is becoming my favorite stamp set.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 25/8/11 - Mid-Week

This card was a huge rush, I am so far behind on my class cards. The shirt on the card was inspired by one I found at My Paper Moose. I needed to change it from inches to cm and make it a little larger to fit on my card.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 21/8/11

Well another Sunday already, the videos are proving a little more of a challenge than I expected. I tried with natural light the other day and it came out a little better, but I prefer to do my stamping at night (when the kidlets have gone to bed), so for now this will have to do.

I am planning a mid video release this week to assist some of my class members. I will be making a fathers day card, and then next Sunday another fathers day card using the pennant punch. I figured that I would need to make one for my dad and another for the kids to give their dad.

Now for the card this week.

Sunday Stamp-a-Long 14/8/11

This week I have chosen to do a kids card. I figured that seeing I have a card I need to make, why not take advantage of the situation. I am still learning when it comes to making the videos, so please bear with me and I will get better (I hope).

Ripples

I brought the circle cutter from Stampin' Up! and it has been looking at me wanting to be used, however I didn't have the time or the space to clean a spot and get it out. Things in my office are now becoming a little cleaner and it now has a space all to itself, meaning I get to finally have a play with it...yay

Here is the first of many cards I will be making from this handy cutter.

I may use this in an upcoming class, I am still a little undecided. If I do add this to my lesson plan a YouTube tutorial may be added for this card.


Sunday Stamp-a-Long 7/8/11

This is my first video tutorial in card making. I hope you enjoy it.
