Convention Swaps


 At this years Convention I was asked to be involved in a new feature called Product Playground. It involved putting together some samples using the new Edgelits dies and coordinating embossing folders plus working on a demonstration table showing convention attendees how to use the new dies.There were other demos showcasing other products too such as the new Simply Scored Tool and the new Framelits. It was lots of fun and I was very honoured to be selected to do so. So in keeping with my responsibilities this year I decided to make my swaps using the Edgelits. I made two designs this year. The baby one was inspired by a demo in the USA but the other was one of my own designs. For the baby card, the owl punch is used for the girls dresses and the boys pants just with a snip in the middle, the edgelit die was used for the hills and the Bordering on Romance Stamp for the clothesline. I used the pleated satin ribbon for the trim on the dresses and the buttons are from the Twitterpated suite as is the Designer Series Paper. For the living room card, I used the same edgelit for the curtain which was cut using the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Papers (love these so much, gonna miss them heaps when they are retired) and the then the scallop edge edgelit for the pelmet and sheer curtain along with the striped embossing folder. The lamp was made using the round tab punch. I finished it off with an antique brad and frayed grosgrain ribbon to hold the curtain back. More on convention coming soon.....

More Birthday Fairy cards...and an apology



Here are my birthday cards that I sent out last month. Very similar to the previous month just a different colour combo. I really love this blossom punch and matching stamp set Mixed Bunch. I hope my recipients for May enjoyed receiving their cards.
Now for my apology.....I am very sorry I have not posted for so long. I was busy last month getting ready for Convention and not long after I got back I became quite ill and am still not 100% BUT I have lots to share over the coming weeks including convention projects plus all my secret sister projects which you are not going to want to miss so stay tuned :) Thanks for your patience.
