Circle Flip Book



Another great project idea, this time from Stacey. I had to put a little of my own into this one and used the stunning new Ginger Blossom DSP to create this book. Once again, now I just need to find the 'perfect' photos for it so stay tuned for that one aswell.......

Afternoon Tea Purse



Thank you so much to Jan for this great project. I had a ball making one of my own, now just to find the suitable photos to put inside. Stay tuned for an updates version. It really is easy just time consuming and now I have made something with those gorgeous carousel notes from the new Summer Mini :)

New Summer Mini Projects










Here are some of the cards made using the new stamp sets, embellishments and accessories available in the Summer Mini Catalogue. The beautiful new sets make creating cards, scrapbook pages and projects so easy. To get your hands on some of these today, give me a call to order and take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration promotion too! Or if you would like to hold a workshop and enjoy a creative afternoon with some friends, give me a call or send me an email for bookings.

2008 Christmas Cards



Better late than never hey! Well I have been away overseas and been sick since I got back so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :)
Wanted to try this technique of masking with christmas baubles for ages and now I finally have, if only I had time to make more. Have a Merry Christmas everyone and a safe and exciting 2009!

SWAPS!!!



The best collection EVER!!!!! Thank you to all the lovely girls (and guy) that offered their swaps to me in exchange for mine. I am so impressed with the huge variety of colours, designs and techniques.

Regional Make & Take's


These are the gorgeous projects we made at Regionals. I just love them. Definitely getting the papers and am so happy with our free set. It will be sad to see these colours go next year :(

Last Minute Summer Mini Regional Swaps!!!




Late the night before regionals I managed to get just over 20 of these done to take on the day of regionals, they were a hit! Stay tuned for more postings of what we made at regionals and all the swaps I collected.

Visit to Stampin' Up! HQ in Utah.



Well since I am in the USA visiting my brother and his family in Arizona this week I just had to take the extra journey to Utah to see the BEST place in the world! When I was boarding the plane yesterday morning, I did not think for one second that I would get the amazing opportunity to meet Shelli Gardner (CEO) but I was lucky enough to do just that. I had a wonderful time even if it was only short but well worth the trip. I had a fantastic tour thanks to the lovely girls in the office including Tracee, Janene and I met so many wonderful people (over 100) but I think they just all wanted to hear me talk with my Australian accent LOL :) Thanks to Lori for arranging it and thanks for my little gift, I just LUUUVV it!

Well I finally finished my Wedding Thank-you's (Thank GOD)! When I made all the invitations and place cards and orders of service etc.. i had my lovely bridesmaids and my mum help me out but this time I was on my own. It's taken me about 3 weekends here and there to get them done - BUT it's not entirely done, I still need to write on them, this is what I hate cos my writing is so feral I will ruin them now :) LOL! I don't think I will be using Berry Bliss DSP anytime soon.......soooo over it!!!

Here is the design I have created for the Regionals this Saturday.

This will be my swap, cant wait to see what others have done and what I will bring home with me, stay tuned.

I thought I would make some calendars in my next workshop/class. Since we are getting so close to the end of the year, it's a great project to use some of those gorgeous Stampin' Up! papers. I have completed two designs, both suited for on top of a desk or bedside table. Here is the link for the calendar pages if you are interested.

Faux Shaving Cream Technique


Gees I must be in a faux mood today LOL!!! I tried colouring the grosgrain ribbon edge too, not sure if there is too much pink on this - hang on what am i saying................there can never be too much PINK!

Faux Metal Technique

I was feeling really creative today so thought I would try something new. I have been wanting to try this technique for ages and never got around to it. After a few trials and many errors (cracked a few) I finally came up with this one, still not 100% happy with it, not too sure on the colours either but hey I tried it! Will have to give this another go soon. Perhaps I will try a different stamp, maybe a Christmas one and maybe in gold next time.

Wedding of the Year (well that's what our guests said anyway)




















The Day was simply perfect! The weather was approximately 28 degrees, little wind, plenty of sunshine and NO rain. After a morning walk on the beach the girls and I spent most of the morning getting 'pretty' (make-up by Alanna and hair by Kristy) having a laugh and nibbling on some yummy food, then the photographer (Ray Alley, champion whale and wedding photograher) arrived and we took some great shots around the resort. Then off in the cars (white Jaguars courtesy of Blake's Wedding Cars) to the Lighthouse for the ceremony conducted by Helen Scott (Nelson Bay's Best Wedding celebrant). The service was beautiful with some special readings and a string quartet performed (Intermezzo) while the registry was signed. Afterwards some more photos with family and then the bridal party took off for more pics in some beautiful locations including Barry Park, Fingal Beach and Pearson Park for a glorious sunset. After all the that it was back to the resort (Shoal Bay Resort) for the celebration and great food at Catch Restaurant. The band (Accoostic Moose) played great music, there were memorable speeches, magnificent food, lots of dancing and we all enjoyed some yummy cake (Jay from Imagine Cakes did an amazing job). But sadly after the garter and bouquet were thrown we had to say goodbye and bring the magical day to an end. An awesome time was had by all and we will never forget it. Thanks to everyone to contributed to such a special day, my husband (there i said it) Greg and I are very appreciative of efforts made my all who helped out. Special thanks go to our wedding coordinator at the resort Emma Brown for her great job and 'nothing too much trouble' response to all my requests. Enjoy the photos!!!
