All In The Family

Do you have children? If yes you can't go past the All In The Family stamp set. My children are school and kindergarten aged (and one approaching kindergarten) so there are a lot of birthday party invitations.

I love using this stamp set for childrens' birthday cards. Stamp an image of either a boy or girl using the cute stamps and colour the picture in using the Stampin' Write Markers or Stampin' Pastels to look like the birthday girl/boy. Add the birthday child's name to personalize the card using the alphabet stamps.

Guaranteed - your card will be displayed at the front of all the other birthday cards !!

Happy Stamping!!

From Picture To Page

This weekend gone I was lucky enough to take part in the From Picture to Page Show, a scrapbook and papercraft show, which was held in East Burwood.

Stampin' Up! had a fabulous display, full of wonderful creations. I was inspired to get creating and I'm planning to update my display to include more 3-D items (beautiful boxes, bags and albums).

The talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who took part in the show were Debbie Pamment, Ramona Michaluk, Kerri Hunter, Melinda Rowe, Kelly Bowen, Tania Lown, Michelle Grech, Yvonne Campbell, Karen Woods, Kasey Burnham and myself. If you have the opportunity to check out the blogs/websites for these creative women, it is well worth the while (but be prepared for a couple of hours to pass by like a couple of minutes).

Kasey, Kelly and Tania (working in the background)............................. Kasey, Tania and moi

During the day I showed how to make this Santa card which is part of my Christmas workshop. Many people stopped to watch, and several people bought the samples. It's a cute card which was given to me as part of a swap which I took part in. A big thanks to Leanne who I cased the card from.

If you're interested in taking part in a Christmas workshop, please contact me.

The school holidays are upon us (how fast is this year going?) The kids have already asked when they can make some cards so, with a bit of luck, I might get a few minutes to make a few and post them here for you to view.

Happy holidays

Christmas Workshops

Just a reminder that I am running a Christams workshop on 10th September at 7:30pm (note the change of time - no longer at 7:00pm). Cost $15.00. We will make 4 Christmas Cards using a couple of different colouring techniques. I've had a lot of people contact me to say they want to do this workshop, so if you are interested, please phone me to confirm your spot - 0419 945 031.

I'm Back!!

So sorry I haven't posted for several days. My computer threw a hissy and wouldn't let me log onto the internet or get my emails..... can you imagine how frustrated I have been??

Anyway, I'm back online and thought I'd share the Father's Day card I made for my Dad. I had to make his card earlier than I usually do (the night before the card is required) because Mum and Dad are in Perth and the card had to be mailed. I'm sure he'll like it (and the licorice).

Sorry the photo isn't so great. I took it in the evening, hence the shadows from the overhead light. I used Pacific Point ink to colour On Board Loads of Letters and also added some silver brads. Happy Father's Day Dad!
