New seasonal catalogue ... Sneak peek!

It's a new stamp set and framelit bundle from the new seasonal catalogue thats on its way!
When I saw this set in the catalogue I thought, hmm what will I do with that?
Then I saw the sample on that page and just had to have it. 
What do you think?
I put three colours together Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Coastal Cabana, then stamped and cut out a few on white and crumb cake cardstock. 
I just love how you can make a gentle background stamping with Baked brown sugar ink onto crumb cake card with the feathers falling like leaves.
Then I die cut another smaller feather out of gold foil paper for a pop of gold and tied them with a few loops of twine.
The seasonal catalogue goes live on 28 August not long to go... Contact me if you'd like a copy delivered to your door or perhaps you'd like a little launch party at your place?

Last days for the big shot special

This last week of August is Big.... From 22-28 August you can sign up to be a demo for $169 and choose $255 worth of product.
Or, you can buy your Big shot and receive a FREE bundle of stamps and Framelits!
 The bundles are Valued from $54.25 - $93.25! 
Or, buy the bundle of your choice for a 15% off discount.
As a demonstrator, for many years, I know a good deal when I see it and these don't come around very often. 
I've made some Christmas cards already with my stamp and Framelit bundle that came this week.
Check these made with the star set bundle in Blackberry Bliss and Coastal cabana. 
With pewter embossing powder.
And the next one is with gold ink and clear embossing powder for a groovy raised antique finish.
There's lots more to do with these stamps and Framelits. Just love them on gold foil paper or in gold embossing powder. 
For the details online click on the link
Which of the five bundles do you like best?

Kinda eclectic, Tap, tap,tap!

A quick single layer card today featuring a watercolour wash background which I created with my water colour brush ( aqua painter) on whisper white.
Then I've stamped some kinda eclectic stamps around the edges in Lost Lagoon.
The old style typewriter is from "Tap,tap,tap" and is stamped with Blackberry bliss (my favourite in colour). A few butterflies stamped and punched finishes this very simple one layer card.
Are you ready to see the new seasonal catalogue?
It is going live for customers on the 28th August, next week.
Message me if you'd like a catalogue delivered to your door :)

ESAD BLOGHOP! New Blackberry bliss!

Welcome to my step on the ESAD blog hop!!!!
I  couldn't decide which stamp or product to feature so I have a collection of creations in the new in colour: Black Berry Bliss! - Enjoy.
My first project uses the Choose Happiness stampset. It's a lovely set for layering and collaging. 
This is almost a monochrome of Blackberry bliss and white.
 I just love the new ribbon and the vintage lace together. Then I've added some glimmer paper flowers. Three of them are coloured with the rich Razzleberry Blendabilities pen.
My second project is this crumb cake card with the Moonlight DSP (designer series paper) stack. Featuring blackberry bliss ribbon.
I have used the new stamp set called "Tap,Tap,Tap".
Can you see that I have coloured my image with a blender pen in Blackberry bliss ink?
The *note* stamp has a piece of patterned paper on it punched with the Banner punch.
 It needed some bling I thought, so I just sparkled a few diamantes across the page... 
Did you know you CAN use Blendabilities to colour your Rhinestones and buttons too?
Next project is stamped using a gorgeous new set called "Work of Art".
This idea is on Pinterest and You tube (stamp with jodi).
 She uses the brush stroke stamp as a petal for this flower.
I actually like the white negative effect created in the centre of the flower, around the yellow circle.
Then the second card I've just stamped more petals cause "more is more" isn't it?
On this I just love the shadow effect of the second generation, stamped off ink around the edges.
Have you guessed - my favourite Incolour this year is Black Berry Bliss? A deep amazingly beautiful purple that can give you dark to light purples all from the one pinky-purple ink pad or marker.
Look how the gradation of colour changes by the fourth generation of stamping off on the same piece of paper. This card is stamped with the wavy lines from "Chalk lines" and the bike is from Life's adventure.
That's it from me today, your next stop on the hop is... Richelle Fletcher at

Wishing you Joy! Thinlit letters.

Did you realise it is less than 22 weeks until Christmas! 
I know I didn't have to tell you that but I just had to share my
 first Christmas card for the year!
It doesn't use a single Christmas stamp at all if that makes it 
any better!
Really I just wanted to show you this cool card design that I 
saw at Convention in May.

And then someone posted this tutorial from Susanstamps and I had to show you what I'd made.

I used the letters JOY from the thinlits Little letters and using washi tape i managed to cut the letters 
out at the top of the card without cutting them off entirely.
Joy to the world was created with the Alphabet rotary stamp... You can make any phrase you like, 
people's names, numbers, sayings. And the glimmer paper stars are punched using 
the new Itty Bitty Accents Punches.
Give me a call if you'd like to have a class at your place. M.0468877125

Life's Adventure with my new stampin' up! catalogue

 Do you have a copy of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue yet?
Every day that I am home I have set myself to make atleast one card from new products from the catalogue. This card is using a very cute set from the hostess section of the catalogue called Life's Adventure. It features this funny little fox holding an umbrella and it says Everyone has a rainy day!
So true. Not everyday is sunshine and happiness. Its a lovely thought that kind of says I am thinking of you and feel what you are going through.
The Moonlight paper stack has 48 sheets of patterned paper, card front sized and I thought this one particularly suitable. The colour is Lost Lagoon (a 2014-16 in colour) and this beautiful satin ribbon goes wonderfully with it.
Mr fox is stamped with new Memento Black ink and coloured with my latest purchase Blendabilities. There are quite a few how to videos on YouTube. They are alcohol based marker pens that blend beautifully on whisper white paper. I even tried it on water colour paper and they are fabulous on it too. They come in sets of three colours together in a box for $20 in a wide range of great Stampin' Up! colours.
Want to try the blendabilities? we can have a class at your place.
Give me a call or a text on 0468 877 125 and we can organise a class at your place.

Friday's card class

Last Friday, we had a second catalogue launch.
We made three projects: a bag with gift tag, a card using Kinda Eclectic 
and a post it note holder using the gorgeous new BlackBerry Bliss In-colour 
with the Flamingo Lingo stamp set. ($3 of this stamp set go towards Ronald McDonald 
house charity -check out the last page of the catalogue).

I am loving this Flamingo Lingo in pink, in purple, or for a babycard that I made this week.
