Team Training Night

Last Friday night I had my team meeting for the launch of the New Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue. Here are the projects we made. I demonstrated how to use the new Simply Scored and the beautiful new Framelits Labels Collection. We also used the gorgeous new stamp set Apothecary Art. I found ideas for these cards here, here and here. All have tutorials.
For the first time we decided it would be fun to make some swaps and start getting in the spirit for Convention coming up in May. I was really impressed with all the swaps that the girls put together.
Here is Denise's Swap - another card using the framelits and the Simply Scored.
Here is Judy's Swap - using the cute Tea Shoppe Stamp set.
Here is Jenny's Swap - an awesome punch art card, great for masculine cards.
Here is Liz's Swap - another one using the framelits and Apothecary Art stamp set.
And here is Jeniece's Swap - cute little 3D folded dresses, great for parties.
I will come back tomorrow and post pictures of my swaps :)
If you are interested in joining my fabulous team, simply email me for a free information pack to be sent to you. It's not too late to make the most of all the bonuses of joining during Sale-a-bration, call me today.

Birthday Fairy Card

Earlier in the year I signed up for a birthday fairy round for the year where every month you send birthday cards to the people celebrating their birthdays. When its your birthday everyone sends one to you. It is organised through the ESAD group I belong to for demos. Here is the card I made approx. dozen of for my recipients for Jan & Feb.
Here is the collection of cards I received for my birthday early last month. What a great collection. I will continue to post my cards that I make throughout the year for the birthday gals.

Baby Wishes Book

Here is the Baby Wishes Book I mentioned in my earlier post. I designed it for the recent Inkspirations4U but I made it for my friend Stephanie's baby shower. I got the idea for the things to include as wishes from here. I have used the petite pocket die and the two tags die - you all know how much I love my Big Shot :) I made a spine for the book using the new scoring tool (yes the Simply Scored is coming next month!!!) Once again I used the Nursery Nest DSP, it worked so well for her owl theme. I have a FREE pass available for the next round of Inkspirations4U, simply comment on this post and you will go into the draw to win. (Winner will be drawn using random.org) Winner will be announced on Saturday.

Baby Shower Time AGAIN!!!

My lovely friend Stephanie just had her beautiful baby boy Quinn and it occurred to me that I didnt post the collection of goodies I made for her. I made another one of my fabulous diaper cakes. It was so good this time knowing it was a boy plus I had a theme of owls so I went to town creating all this. This cake was a whole tier larger than the ones I have made before with a whopping 136 nappies! I used the Nursery Nest DSP to decorate it. I filled it with lots of essentials including onsies, dummy, wraps, wash cloths, brush/comb, baby oill, soft toy, teether, singlets and lots more.... She totally loved it :) The invites were a modified version of an invite I made a while ago for my SIL. Check out her cake, isnt it awesome! (No I didnt make this, I'm a crafter not a baker LOL)We also made the favors using the petal cone die (very similar to my baby shower ones) and I decorated some jars of baby food for one of the games like I did for my SIL too.Here is the card I made for her - isnt it cute!I made the prizes similar to my baby shower once again and simply modified the banner I made for mine and stuck some owls on it. It was a really great day. I also made her a baby wishes book but I will talk about that in my next post.
