Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone!!

Cold winter’s day here, my fingers are still frozen at 1pm, don’t think it will get warmer for me.

so I made a card for you.


Oh this one is a cute one, made for a Challenge on Facebook ACCC, Using a Stencil, I have almost covered the stencil up!!

Yes a 5″ x 5″ card with a designer paper that I have stitched around.  Then I have inked the edges of the card and the paper, and then used an open chicken wire stencil to get hexagonal blobs and spatter on my card with texture paste.  Lace and a thin strip of the patterned paper, a sentiment and a lovely garland of roses and foliage, I have spiralled the wires on the roses to add another texture.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs :)



Hello Everyone,

Have you been getting crafty?  I hope so, for some reason my mojo has come back to me, it was missing for several months and I could not get the motivation to make anything and now I am just pumping the cards out of my craft room :)

So here is a card for you :)


Well this one is for another Challenge on the ACCC site on Facebook, and I am really pleased with it.

This one was to use Newspaper or print paper, so I made my flowers with dictionary pages.  It is a 5″x5″ card, with a panel on front that I have used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to give a lacy border.  Designer paper on the front of that, my favourite ribbon treatment and bow.  The die cut flowers are from Heartfelt Creations with the addition of some roses that I have curled the stems of.  To finish I have used a Chipboard sentiment from A2Z Scraplets, it is just wonderful, thick cut and so easy just to paint this one :)

Hope you like it.

Hugs :)


Hello Everybody,


Feeling really well today and getting ready for Scrapbooking Retreat with My2Angels (the best little papercraft and embellishment shop on the Coast) coming up soon on the Gold Coast.  Lucky me, going!!


So just for fun, I made you a fun card.




Isn’t he so cute?  Simple square card with a tree and a train!! Die cut of course.  Handrawn railway line and chenille pom poms (stolen from the refills for my chalk applicators)  and a happy smiley sentiments.  Cute, Easy and Fun!!


Hope you like him.


Hugs :)



Hello Everybody,


Beautiful day in paradise here, lovely Winter’s day, almost still, blue sky and gorgeous warming sunshine.  The back screened room is overflowing with fur babies vying for the best bed in the sun.  I love Winter days like this, it is almost tee shirt weather!!


So I made a card for you.




I just adore this card, it is a Tim Holtz tag on an 8″x4″card.  The Prima Doll stands perfectly on this.  I did a couple of paper doilies under the tag, fussy cut around a flocked piece of Kaiser paper and placed the dressed doll, then added a flower spray.   Simple enough with a bit of bling added, but the spirals in the flower spray are handmade by me out of fencing tie wire and then embossed to make them the colour I wanted.  I love it when I can do something like this.


Hope you like her.


Hugs :)



Thinking of You

Hello Everybody!!!

Oh my it is getting into Winter and it is brrrr cold inside and out.  Today is the Winter Solstice so that means that at least the days will be growing longer even if the temperature keeps dropping for a while.

So with this in mind I made a card to share with you all.


My favourite size card, in square 5 inch. Background is patterned paper with just a touch of Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around the edge.  Doily from Cheery Lynn is French Pastry.  Chipboard is the new thick cut, 1.8mm from A2Z Scraplets (my favourite chippie in the world) painted white and while wet spritzed with Glimmer Mist Black Cherry.  When dry the chipboard is covered fairly thickly with Glossy Accents.

Finished with a bow made from mesh ribbon and a handmade flower using a Carl Daisy Punch.   Stmped sentiment on the doily is from Stamp-It Australia.  Then a few bling rhinestones are added.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs :)


Birthday Cards

Hello Everyone,

Well it has been Summer again this past week, but now overcast and turning back to Autumn temperatures, gotta love that.  Autumn is morning ground mists and cool temps, lovely temperate days and cool evenings, rain and turning leaves.

Perfect weather for making loads of cards.  Birthday Cards for member birthdays coming up, actually I am a little behind the times at the moment, but we will catch up.


These are so pretty and easy to do.  Love the purple colour, the embossed background, the dies used and the overall card.  Yes you could say Teddy was very happy with these.


Oh and this one in pretty green.  Love the colour, love the embossed background, the pretty border and those shabby flowers.  Another one that Teddy was very happy with.


Oh Oh Oh and Teddy was so very happy with this one, he loves that boot, such a stylish high heel boot too.


This set of cards in all different colours with inking and ribbon, the border punch (love that border punch), different embossing folders and bling to liven it up.  Yes you could say Teddy was happy here again :)


Hope you like them.  Teddy is sending out about 8 Birthday cards a month now and he is just loving doing  this.  He loves to make cards and send them to people.

Hugs :)


Hello Everyone!!

Oh you know every time I post I tell myself that I will post the next day too, and guess what?  It just never happens.

Well I am posting today!!


This is a card where I have used 3 types of patterned paper, it is so rare that I do that, I am not comfortable with mixing and matching patterns.  There are some people who have a real gift for it and I love the 6×6 paper pads of coordinating papers available, this is the only way I can do this.  And did you see, a picture from the papers saves me the stamp and colour routine.  I believe I have all colouring methods known to man in my craft room and the only ones I can even passably use are the watercolours, so hopeless with colour this girl.  No wonder I only wanted to draw in graphite, grey graphite at that!!

Well I hope you like it, I personally love the stitching and am really almost on first name terms with my sewing machine.

Hugs :)
