Stamp Club Creations!

Last week was our last Stamp Club meeting for the first half of the year! We've had a brilliant few months and I've really enjoyed meeting up with the ladies each month! This time around we created scrap book pages together. I thought they were all so gorgeous that I have photographed them to show you all!

Here is the page that I made for inspiration for the ladies. I CASED a page of Dani Hollands that I love. This one shows me with my Mum on my first birthday - a very special photo!

Jeannie made this page - the colours are Sahara Sand, Rose Red and Not Quite Navy. I love this combination - think I'll have to use it again!

Megan made this page. I think it suits the photo so well - and I love the Peach Parfait ric rac! It ties the page together so nicely!

Here's Amy's page! She embossed a bird cage on the corner. Subtle texture to really give the page a nice finish. It looks spectacular!

Karen made this lovely page! I love the way she used the Botanical Gazette paper across the bottom - my favourite paper at the moment!

Amanda made this page. So pretty! She snaffled a piece of my retired Parisian Breeze DSP (from an old mini catalogue) - it suits the page so well!

And here's Nat's creation. I love the way she has matched her colours to her wedding photo. Beautiful!

I had such fun with you, ladies, over the last 6 months! And, I had so much fun last week letting you loose and seeing what you came up with. (And sipping on a few bubbles!). 

Bring on July!

Wagga Library Mother and Daughter Craft Workshop

Just stopping in to show you the project I'm sharing with Mothers and Daughters at the Wagga Library Craft workshop next weekend.

This frame is made using the All in the Family stamp set, as well as the Broadsheet alphabet and Timeless Type die cut letters. This sample is on display at the library already - you can see it near the circulation desk.

The workshop is being held next Saturday 25th June from 2pm. The class includes everything you need to make the project, including the frame. There will be choice of colours available. Workshop cost is $20. All the other details are available from the Library and bookings are essential. When I spoke to Library staff yesterday there were still a few spots available - so get in quick if you'd like to join in!

During the week as I was getting ready to take the sample frame in I hurriedly tried to take some photos of it. I thought this one was very cute. If you look carefully you can see my 1 year old son 'helping' me take the photo!

Until next time!

Convention, Challenge Card.....and more!

How are you all?
I hope you're keeping warm in this freezing weather!
Last night I celebrated being able to stay at home in the warm by taking part in a Card Challenge! It was lots of fun (thanks ladies!). One of the challenges was a colour challenge - to make a card using the colours Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. I made a birthday card!

Wild Wasabi felt a bit bright next to the other colours so I sanded the Designer Series Paper I had to give it a more muted tone. I love the way the Beveled Windowpane really highlights the sentiment!


It's a gorgeous clear cold day here today, so I've photographed my card outside in the lavender. I had a little helper - I think he approved!

I've been a having some fun lately creating cards which are not my usual style. This one, using the stamp set Artistic Etchings was a lot of fun! 

Back in May I went to Stampin' Up Convention down in Melbourne. I had a fabulous time! I learned lots of new things and was so glad to meet people I'd previously only met online, as well as catching up with old friends. There are lots of things to show you when our new catalogue comes out in a few months - and so many new things to share already! I was surprised to see this photo of me with Beth (my upline), Amanda (my downline) and Marelle and Jo (two very lovely ladies!) on Shelli Gardner's blog!

Shelli (Stampin' Up! founder) wrote a great post about this years Convention which you can read on her blog. I highly recommend her blog for all kinds of inspiration! There are lots of lovely photos from Convention there!

 These last two cards are some simple pretty cards I've been sharing with people lately! The little cupcake card has lots of sparkly goodness and the thankyou card has some vintage sweetness. If you'd like to make one of these cards with me (or any other I've posted today!) let me know!
