Botanical Gazette DSP

The new Botanical Gazette designer series paper is so beautiful, I find it scary to cut into any of the sheets. Strangely enough it's starting to disappear though... hmmm! These two projects have been designed for a future workshop, where we will be making both the card and gift box.

I will be showing the girls how to use the Big Shot machine to make this gorgeous little pinched box and the butterflies that are on both projects. I really enjoyed designing these and can't wait to share them!

Create a Cupcake!

I have been asked to prepare a purple and pink card for an upcoming workshop and this is what I ended up with, using Rich Razzleberry and Pretty in Pink:

Hmmm, not sure, I might try a different pink (I think it's too soft with razzleberry) and you might see this post again!

Using bleach and Embossing

We were shown some amazing techniques at the recent Stampin' Up! convention in Melbourne. One that I just had to try was bleaching and embossing. Kirsty Brown showed us how to achieve a beautifully vintage look by embossing images and bleaching them. Here is my take on her workshop wow which I am demonstrating at a workshop later this week:

I used the Happiness Shared flower and black embossing powder to achieve this look.

The greeting is Sincere Salutations which looks lovely on this card.

If you'd like to book a workshop and make some gorgeous projects like these, my email is!

Old-Time Feel Cards and Matching Box

Here's a cute little card box and set of four cards that I demonstrated at a recent workshop. The hostess got to keep these (isn't that a great reason to host a workshop?) and she loved them.

I used the neutral paper patterns stack, a range of neutral cardstock colours and real red for this set.

These cards match in colour scheme but have a range of stamp sets, techniques and tools used to make them. There are infinate possibilities when playing with Stampin' Up! products.

I hope you enjoyed my creations! If you are interested in hosting a workshop anywhere on the Central Coast, call me on 0421226332 and some cards just like these can be yours!

Swaps for Convention!

I am flying to Melbourne next Thursday to be a part of this years Stampin' Up! Convention. I have enlisted the help of all of my amily to take care of my little boy, which is a mammoth effort of shifting him around! Convention, by the way, is where demonstrators from around Australia and New Zealand converge in one area- this time Melbourne- to stamp, stamp and stamp (and learn new business tips and get inspired)!

I have made my swaps for Convention and wanted to share them with you. I made two designs, and depending on how much time I have next week, I may make a couple more.

Here's the one I started on Saturday:

I love the set Happiness Shared and used this to create a backdrop of flowers, as well as the sentiment in the oval. I used the Colour Spritzer Tool which looks awesome. Here they are, all bagged up and ready to swap:

Here's the other design I began yesterday and finished today:

I used my fvourite hostess set, Birthday Bakery, for this card. Here are all of them together:

I am so excited to get to Melbourne and swap my cards with other talented demos!
