What a great way to spend the long weekend here crafting and creating. UStamp is having a FREE event this weekend. A lot of the talented designers have put together various projects for all of us to download. I fell in love with Lorri Heiling's project as soon as I saw it and I knew the perfect opportunity to use it. Two of my friends have recently moved into new places they bought and I thought these would make lovely housewarming cards.... Lots of punches used here plus my Little Leaves Sizzlit for the Big Shot. So get along to Lorri's blog and get hopping and you too can create these cute cards plus dont forget to check out all the other creative designers :)
On the weekend we had my baby shower and what a great day it was. It has taken me a couple of days to recover but it was so worth it. You may recall the invitations I made for the event, well in keeping with the theme I made the baby shower favors, the prizes, a banner and I am yet to do the thank you cards.... (now you know why I was so exhausted). Don't worry I had help.... My gorgeous Mum did all the food and my BFF organised all the games, we had a great day but it went so fast. Thanks also go to Jo for taking pics for me on the day. The banner was made using the Pennant Die, the prizes made using the the Milk Carton Die and the favors made using the *NEW* Petal Cone Die (coming in the September Catalogue). I also used the Button Embosslit on all projects (love this cute little die). The prizes contained two Lindt Balls and the favors had a few Favourites Chocolates in them. I was particulary happy with the cake and how it turned out. I took one of the invites to Oakleigh Cakes (best cake shop eva) and we drew up a sketch of what I wanted etc.. but you never really know how it will look til you see it, you just have to hope that they are on the same wave length as you are I guess......well check it out!!! They matched the colour perfectly. TOTALLY FAB HEY! And you should have tasted it...OMG!!! Thank you to everyone for my lovely presents, our little boy is gonna be the best dressed little bub :)
Recently one of my friends from work (who is also in my Stamp Club) celebrated her 40th Birthday. I wanted to make her something special and I remembered that she mentioned earlier in the year that she wanted to learn how to make an Accordion Album like in the Current Stampin' Up! Catalogue and Idea Book on p.115. I thought I would try one out and make one for her instead. So I asked her what her favourite DSP was and away I went to work. I had lots of fun creating this and found Kylie O'Brien's tutorial on her blog very helpful. Colours used include Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla and of course the Lap of Luxury DSP (her favourite). I also used some Big Shot products, cant really make much these days with using my Big Shot, I love it so much. I used the emblosslit buttons, the scallop envelope die, the beautiful wings bigz die, various embossing folders, top note bigz die, blossom party bigz die, scallop square punch, photo corner punch, itty bitty punches, and my letters sizzlits. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
