Hello Everyone!!!


Here we are for you with a couple of cards for you to have a look at and hopefully get some inspiration from.

So here they are:

The first is my usual shabby type card with a Paris theme, now who would not like to see Paris at some stage?

Viva modelling crème over Memory Box Stencil – Texture Splatter Spray, border and doily are Kaisercraft Dies – Lacy Border and Lacy Doily.  Butterfly is Memory Box Isabella Butterfly and Memory Box Pipi Butterfly.  Pearls are Kaisercraft Pearls.
Love, love in Paris, yes well this love is from A2Z Scraplets  Brush Words and has been decorated with black Tombow Pen and Glossy Accents


Love charms and decorated charms, I cannot take the credit for this one, it comes from Tracy at My2Angels.
The next card is a bit Clean and Simple for me, such a stretch not to cover up that white space.
These gorgeous Butterflies from Z2Z Scraplets  are called Maisie Butterflies Set of 3  and they are just gorgeous and so perfect for this card!!!  Stamp from Kaszazz.  The Butterflies have been done with Stampendous Embosssing Powder Shabby Blue (I love these shabby colours), which gives a thick melt with a hint of blue on white with gold speckles.  The edges have been touched with Viva Inka Gold in Aquamarine.
A close look at the finish on these butterflies.
Hope you like these, go on, do some creating now, and don’t forget about the A2Z Challenge this month, and we are also having an Easter Weekend Challenge with loads of challenges and fun and games 🙂 Something for everyone including the kidlets!!  Check it out https://www.facebook.com/events/1663115533951222/
See you next time xxxx

Well Hello Everybody,

Well Winter is moving on, and I am almost counting till Spring, I love that September is t-shirt weather here, and we can guarantee an Indian Summer in August sometime to it means that from now there really is only 6 weeks of coolish weather.  Not bad at all.  Love living close to the coast for this reason, so temperate 🙂

So I made a card for you.


Yes a sunshiny card for the Aussie Craft Creative and Challenge site on Facebook that I am the creative director for 🙂 how funny is that??  During School Holidays we have a Challenge a Day to keep the mums sane while the kids run rampant!!

So this is an 8″x4″ card with a black panel on the front, covered with another panel that is joined with a border on one side and the sponged template of sunrays on the other.  A yellow half circle for the sun and lovely flowers and leaves.  The leaves are from a Kaisercraft set of dies, and the flowers are MFT Plentiful Petals.  The stamp from Kaszazz.

Hope you like it.

Hugs 🙂

Oh My this week on the Mix It Up Challenge on SCS our Miss Lynn challenged us to make a simple card.  Well as you know I am not a CAS type person, I love embellishing and I love the journey of the making, the time spent.

I can make a CAS card in 5 mins and feel so robbed by doing this.  But I put myself right out there and came up with these two little beauties.

The first one took a little time….. oh ok about 10 mins, 15 with glue drying and punching time.



Simple, easy and colourful happy birthday card.  Some bling on the flowers.  And the chance to use the die cutter.  The stamp is by Stamp-It Australia.

But then I thought, this is not really a CAS card, go on girl get one done…. so..



Now this fits the bill.  Stamped with Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink, top to bottom, so the ink layers over the one above.  I love Fluid Chalk, it is a dye ink, but has the opacity of pigment and will layer so well so long as the ink it is going over is dry.  Gives great coverage and will blend when you want it to.  The sentiment stamp is by Kaszazz and the butterfly is a Penny Black.  Love Penny Black stamps. I got to be creative with the Liquid Pearls, so pretty and this card got me a mention in CAS card of the week on SCS, how cool is that.

Thanks for calling in, hope your day is great!!!!
Hugs 🙂

I just wanted to make another item for the Mix It Up Challenge this week since I am hosting and I wanted to keep the girls interested and making things!

Each section has Australian scenery stamps with an oval opening with a star aperture behind with a feature stamp.

No embellishments, only stamping and punching to create texture and interest.  Tied with a ribbon.

and the rest of the scene

Here is the full image of the album again. This is for decorative purposes only, it is not an album for photos.  Part of my annual Australia Day decorations for next year.

Have a great day, I will be back tomorrow with a tutorial for wire and bead dragonflies.

I needed some inspiration today so I looked for a challenge and made this card for the Sketch Challenge on SCS.  This fits the sketch and I loved making it.

The Sketch

close up of sentiment

This sentiment if from Kaszazz and is so uplifting.  This is so versatile and can be used for so many occasions.

butterflies, embossing and pearls

I have embellished with half pearls and Glimmer Glam coated butterflies. I am loving this new product Glimmer Glam, a wonderful brush on item that has the sheen of pearl and a slight addition of glitter.  Very pretty.  My friend Lynn aka FMcrafter sent it to me.  Thank you Lynn!!

Here is a picture of the full card.  I really am happy with the end result of the sketch.

Fluttering By....

This card gave me the chance to use all my favourite  things; ribbon check, embossing folders check, handmade flowers check, hat pins check, die cuts check, pearls check.  Yes they are all here.  And butterflies too!!

Have a great day!!

Hugs Lauren ♥♥♥

Hello Everyone!!

Beautiful sunny Summer’s day here, 28 degrees with a light breeze all day, very nice!

So I made a birthday card for BRAK assignments.  Blue and blue with some white and sheer ribbon ribbed across the bottom, some sheer bows.  Pretty and not bulky so cheaper overseas post.  Oh no, can be it I am getting thrifty as I get older??

Of course I couldn’t make a card without some pearls and some butterflies!!!  And I used my newest punch, that lovely lace punch from SU.  I am sure I have no loyalty, except to liking it, needing it!!

Hope you get some inking done soon.
