CD Case Calendar

Tomorrow night I have a team meeting with my downline and this is one of the projects we will be making. I found this cute idea here. It uses one of the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) sets called Punch Bunch, it's such a super cute set. I had a ball making this calendar, it was so nice to use some bright colours for a change. I have used Melon Mambo, Marina Mist, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz along with the 2-step Owl Punch and 2-step Bird Punch. You too can have this cute set (which has 5 stamps which all coordinate with our punches including the scallop square and scallop circle) from Monday with all qualifying Workshops or orders of $100 or more you can have this adorable stamp set for FREE. There is another way you can earn SAB sets for FREE and that is to join my fabulous team plus you can also choose a stamp set from the Idea Book and Catalogue to the value of $79.95 FREE. Plus.....if you join my team you will also receive a welcome pack from me which includes plenty of resources to get your business off and running.

Faux Silk with my Stamp Club

Here is what my stamp club ladies will be making next Sunday at our next club meeting. I used this card as my inspiration. It is a technique using tissue paper to create a faux silk look. I was actually pretty happy with how this turned out. I stamped it with Black Stazon and then coloured it in with ink and blender pens. I have used the Friends 24-7 stamp set with a sentiment from Oval All and the Very Vintage wheel. I have topped it off with a flower brad and some taffeta ribbon. The centre image has been paper pierced around the edges and I used the scallop trim border punch along the bottom. Colours used are Perfect Plum, Old Olive & Confetti White. If you are interested in joining my stamp club simply drop me an email at Thanks for looking.

A gift for a friend

I have made one of these gorgeous little card holders before but decided to compliment it this time with two other items. All these projects are tutorials from other talented demonstrators which I will link to shortly. I was also reluctant to post this collection as it uses retired papers etc... Firstly I made the card holder which is a tutorial I purchased from the very creative Andrea Walford. You can see the tutorial here. Andrea puts together very detailed tutorials that are excellent and easy to follow. The only thing I changed was the clear sleeves to hold the cards as ours are a little larger, all I did was trim the tops off about a 1-2cm to fit in the holder and stuck them together using sticky strip. The next item was a little desk calendar with drawer. Inside the drawer is a post-it-note pad I found at Officeworks with a little butterfly on it which was perfect. The calendar was designed by the talented Nicole Stalker. You can see her video tutorial here. Finally I modified a chocolate block holder designed by Claire Daly, I made it larger to fit the bigger block. She has a free tutorial here. I have used a stamp set called Simple Friendship (one of my favs, unfortunately not available in Australia) and the retired Bella Bleu DSP. I have used, however, some of the new crochet ribbon on the choc block holder. I hope Denise likes her little gift.

Happy New Year!!!

I have been busy seeing the new year in on the latest UStamp (started last night) with one of the latest fabulous projects. This was designed by Kristen Conant. It was initially designed as a Vintage Box with matching cards but I decided to change the theme and make it a baby one for thank-you's. I have used the Nursery Suite Specialty Papers and the Note Cards ($9.50 for 20 cards with matching envelopes, card measures 8.9cm x 12.7cm). You can still join UStamp for only $US24.98. It runs for 3 weeks with a couple of projects with full instructions posted everyday. It's so much fun. Thanks for looking.
