JAI9 Challenge

It's Just Add Ink Challenge time, and this week it's a Sketch challenge. I've done a 6X 6 scrapbook page of my Maternal Grandma when she was a little girl.
The basis of my page is the Very Vintage Wheel- which is giving you a sneek peek at just one of the gorgeous items in the New Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue out on the 1st April. Join me at my workshop on the 1st April to see the Mini and a chance to see some of the new products up close and get to make something to take home. Email ME to book your place.

Teen Pressie and Card

Here's the card I've made for my best friend's daughter- she's turning 13!!! I wanted to make something that would appeal to a younger yet sophisticated young lady! I've used a lot of sponging in Elegant Eggplant and Pixie pink inks to give it a slightly tie dye look. I've used the Always Stamp set and the Sale- A- Bration Whimiscal Words Set.
Remember just 10 days left to get your Sale-A-Bration sets when you spend $120 with me, email me for more details.

Just -Add- Ink Challenge JAI8

The Just add Ink Challenge this week has been to make anything with an Easter Theme. I wanted to make a card that reflects that here in the Southern Hemisphere we are moving to Autumn. So I chose yellows, oranges and browns rather than the more traditional pastel colours. I'm really pleased with how this card has turned out.
If you would like to learn how to make a similar card, then contact me to book your workshop.

Sleepover Survival

So I survived my daughter's sleepover! hurrah! They all had such a good time, and it's just gorgeous to see them play and interact. I don't think they got to sleep until 2:30- but hey that's half the fun. Here's photos of them this morning trying to hide from me, the photographer.

Party Favour Boxes

I have been a bit disappointed today, because I thought my Stampin' Up! Starter Kit would arrive today, but alas I was mistaken. Nevermind, I got stuck into these boxes for my daughter's sleepover party on saturday. She and I both think they are gorgeous and the girls are going to fall over themselves to chose their fav colour, filled with smiggle goodies I'm pleased.
I've used various card stock with Kaleidoscope DSP scraps, and Pun Fun Stamp Set, and Whimiscal Words SAB Stamp set.
Just 3 weeks left to get hold of a Sale- A- Bration set when you spend $120 with me, so email me to make your order or if you'd like me to show you how to make these gorgeous boxes, email me to book your workshop.

Party Invites

I have made these cute invites for my daughter's sleepover party- she loves squirrels. I've used the Pun Fun Stamp Set, Kaleidoscope DSP, and Yoyo Yellow cardstock with a bit of sponging around the edges.

First Up!

To celebrate becoming part of the big Stampin' Up! family I decided to do a scrapbook page of yours truly, using the delicious Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (DSP). I love using decoupage techniques on my pages, keeps them nice and simple yet different.
