A lovely friend had an adorable baby girl last month and this is the card I made for her.

THREE of the colours used on these cards will be retiring at the end of next month- “Pretty in pink”, “Bashful Blue” and “Certainly Celery”  Be sure to snap up these colours before they retire!



Have you seen the gorgeous pinwheel die on page 33 of the Seasonal catalogue?  I think it is adorable and used it for the following card.  I’ve also used the cloudy day embossing folder in the background as well as the needlepoint border embossing folder!

The sentiment on this card comes from the “Delightful dozen” stamp set (page 141 of the annual catalogue)

I’m starting to get into the Christmas spirit.  I’ve not actually done a lot to prepare..but it is on my mind and I’d love to help you prepare for Christmas.  I  just love Christmas time!  I have a Christmas tag making class coming up this Saturday and I have a few spots remaining-so why not consider booking a spot for yourself and start getting organised for Christmas. I also  have another fun Christmas class for later this month but I need bookings to be made THIS WEEK!

“Reindeer Poop” and “Rudolph spare noses”

I’ve been making my little packages of reindeer poop and Rudolph spare noses for  years and they are always a huge hit with both young and old.  Come along and make some little bags of Christmas fun for the Children’s school friends, for Christmas stockings or fun Christmas surprises.   15 little bags of Christmas fun for $25 OR 30 bags for $45

WHEN? Saturday 24th November
WHERE? Address supplied when you book your spot.
TIME? 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start
COST? $25 for 15 OR $45 for 30
DETAILS? We will be making and decorating bag toppers to go on top of 15 bags of Christmas fun for $25 OR 30 bags for $45.  I fill the reindeer poop bags with maltesers and the Rudolph spare noses with jaffa lollies- however the class fee does not cover the cost of lollies.    You will also be supplied with cellophane bags however you can fill them with your own lollies in your own time.    When you book your spot can you please indicate whether you would like to make 15 or 30 bags so enough supplies are ordered to cater for all participants. Can you also please indicate whether you intend to make only Rudolph’s spares, only reindeer poop OR a combination of both so the correct coloured cardstock is ordered.

IMPORTANT- I will obviously need to order the cellophane bags and more cardstock and adhesive than is normally required for a regular cardmaking class.  As a result I will be making 2 requests.
a) EARLY RSVP is required.  Please Book your spot by Thursday 8th November
b) Payment for the class is required in advance.  You can drop off cash in person or transfer payment into my bank account.

Please RSVP by Thursday 8th November to allow enough time to source materials

While I’m feeling ‘Christmassy”, here’s a Christmas card that participants made at a class last month.

I quite like the colour combination of Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and a hint of Silver Glimmer paper (gosh I love that stuff!)   They seemed the perfect colours to go with the “Snowflake Soiree” stamp set that we used in the class.

I think this stamp set is perfect if you are looking for quick but effective Christmas cards.  The intricate design of the snowflakes are really beautiful and the detail makes your card look deceivingly ‘complicated’ …..but oh so pretty!  If you’d like to order this stamp set to make your Christmas cards- please get in touch with me on 0419 947 047 or

At a cardmaking class last month particpants made the following “Trishutter card” using the totally gorgeous “Mocha Morning specialty paper”  Love love Love the flocked paper in this pack!

We used the Simply Scored board (below) to mark the score lines on the card.

and here’s the card from a different angle……

See what you can learn to make at my cardmaking classes with no experience required? You should join us at the next one!   If you’d like to attempt this card at home then please check out the following link where I have shown the measurements used to make this type of card.  Happy crafting! 🙂

Flirtatious Fun

| Leave a comment

At a cardmaking class I held recently we made the following card.

I wanted everyone to see the gorgeous the Flirtatious Speciality paper in person and see how quickly and easily you can whip up a card when you have such gorgeous products to work with. That stunning Pumpkin Pie Doily is just a piece that has been cut from one of the laser-cut sheets!

As the paper is so gorgeous- we just let it shine.  However, it seemed a shame to not use the matching stamp set called “Delicate Doilies” so we stamped the inside of the card using the stamp set

With only a few months left of this current Stampin’ Up! catalogue it is worth bearing in mind that many products ‘retire’ and therefore become ‘no longer available’ to purchase.  This paper and stamp set are both items that you do not want to miss out on!  If I can help you out with ordering these products or other stunning items from the catalogue- please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!  Also if you’re interested in making cards like this then please consider coming along to one of my cardmaking nights.  You’ll see class details in the tab at the top
