Oops a little late blogging this Project, but as we all know there is a little thing us stampers/bloggers have in common and that is a family life; too much happened in mine this week mad my brain a little scattered.

I am really enjoying being a part of the CC Team Project Highlight blog, it makes you keep on keeping on, and this weekend my Mojo was working over time.

Saying this I can assure you there are 8 more cards all completed with Glue, Glitter, and Embellishments all intact waiting for me to edit the photos of each card and place them on my Blog.

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting a adorable baby boy his name is ISAAC JACK  Handsome little fellow and will grow to be a wonderful person I am sure about this.

I used the Easter Lamb Stamp from the Occasions Catalogue Valid to 31 May 2016. 

As you can see there are Lettering under the Lamb, I used Washi Tape over the top of the lettering so I could just stamp the image of the Lamb..

With this stamp I first Clear Heat Embossed the St…

I am very happy with the result of this card as I pushed myself out out the square I normally sit in. One: I used Very Vanilla Cardstock for the Card as I normally only use Whisper White or Black for Cards: or the occasional Coloured Card. So Very Vanilla is a First. Two: The inside of the card is of centre, I always have everything straight as possible but I like how this looks as I believe it goes with the card quite well. Three: I am using DSP, this is really pushing my limits and I have all of the team to th…

 Hi There EveryoneMy design of a Tuxedo Card for a 21st Birthday Male, I was inspired by once again the lovely Stampin'' Up Demonstrators who tirelessly place tutorials on You Tube. 

My Inspiration came from lovely Tamie White -
 Forloveofpaper -

This Card was also a Customer Order; again with no Brief, allowing for my Artistic Mind to flow. Sounds good, and it worked.

I was very pleased on how this Card took its form. It really did flow, I found it to just transform from Cardstock and other Products into a very pleasant card to complete; with no hassles. 

Yeah I hear you; all  applauding as we know sometimes the most easiest of card can become a headache.

I can guarantee you that this card was not that it just flowed and before I knew it, it was complete.

Hello To You,I am so pleased to show this Wedding Card that I made with the New LOVE BLOSSOMS SUITE and the New BOTANICAL GARDENS SUITE that are in the  
Stampin' Up!®  Occasions Catalogue available 5 Jan 2016 - 31 May 2016.

This Wedding Card was made for a Customers Order, no brief given the customer just valued my talents and I am very pleased and relieved to say, it turned out lovely; so much so that when the customer arrived to my home to collect the Wedding Card she was extremely happy, with lots of complements for me I was taken aback as I know I make nice cards but worry they are not good enough.

I should have not worried with this Wedding Card; as the lady was so impressed she sent me a message later in the day saying:-
After reading this message it was what I needed to give me the confidence to stop doubting myself! 
I now know that  I can make Cards to look really Special. 
Oh the part that I look a $1 million, is that I have lost over 10 kg in weight and my body size has drop…


Hi and Welcome

Today's addition to my blog are these gorgeous Paper Mugs.

Once again I was stalking You Tube for inspiration and I found this real easy to follow tutorial. There is no talking on the tutorial, I just had to follow the written instructions and watch to see how assemble these Paper Mugs.

Here is the You Tube link for you to see how the talented Natali Doma made her Paper Mug.
