The sun shined today!!

I have a spring in my step today just because it’s sunny. Hurrah!
Did my Black and White christmas class last night. Had a great time and think the cards went down well.
This is a card I’m working on for my “Bling it On” class. Not sure if this is the finished article yet but I quite like it.


Floral garland – the wedding version.

Another sample of the garland card but this time all in white. I think I’m going to do a lot of my christmas cards along this line this year. Maybe try it with holly or different sized circles for baubles?


More embossing!

These are two more embossed cards. I love the Mickey cricut cartridges – they make great embellishments for kids cards. I must get on with my Disney album too – only a year and 4 months since we were there!


Been playing with my embossing folders!

A selection of cards I’ve made over the last couple of weeks. I think these cuttlebug embossing folders are just amazing – great effects to be had. The possibilities are endless.


A card for Portia

It’s my friend Portia’s big 4 0 tommorrow so I made her this.


Black and White Christmas

These are the cards I am planning to do in the Black and White Christmas class. Again, there is a lot of cricut and cuttlebug used but that’s because that’s my favourite thing EVER


"Birthdays and Beyond" Class

This class is designed to cover all “birthday requirements” so to speak. I have tried to include cards for a new baby, a child, a teen, a lady and a man.

Black and White Spots
This is a masculine card done simply with a punch and a bit of ribbon.

Butterfly Card

Black pearlescent card which is just gorgeous (size 6″). Flourish corners cut from black glossy card (Cricut – Storybook Font). Butterflies cut from cuttlebug cut and emboss set also from black glossy and bright pink. A few gems and jobs done.

Two Hearts
Cream 4″ square card. 3 strips of bazzil in contrasting colours, some brads a bit of ribbon and another simple card. The hearts are sizzix “Primitive Hearts” with the smaller of them being embossed with the cuttlebug “Swiss Dots” folder. A few gems for a bit of bling and that’s it.

Baby (boy and girl options)

Concertina cards done with fine ribbed cardstock. The letters are done with cricut “Plantin Schoolbook font” and then simply jazzed up with some gems, primas, buttons, ribbon and whatever else you might have lying around!

Floral Garland
This is another cricut/cuttlebug combo. The flowers are from Accent Essentials

Party Hats

A great card for kids. Doodlecharms cricut cart for hats.


Ooh, where does the time go?

Just popping on here to show to myself that I’m not neglecting my newborn blog! I have been busy making cards for my new enterprise which is teaching some classes from home. I will try to add some pictures if I can remember how to do it. Everyone has gone out to karate so I have one moment to “play” on the computer without feeling guilty.


How does one "make time"?

I haven’t done anything here for a couple of days so as it is the very first day of a new month I thought I’d add something. I am hoping that by this time tommorrow, ie, after the first day back at school, I will have made a plan for myself to get my crafting ass in gear. I look around at the creations that lots of people have been producing and they fill me with total inspiration. I just never seem to get the time to do it. My new plan is to MAKE TIME. As of today.


Ok, I know it’s August but I’m just playing.

One of my favourite LO’s. Christmas hugs. This is my daughter Olivia with her cousin. They are inseperable!
