Hi All

I think I have blown everyone of my new years resolutions, I’m sure there was something in there about posting to my blog more often 🙂

The new Autumn/Winter Mini is on its way (Available from 1st April) and I just wanted to share with you my first project using some of my new goodies

We are off to The Gold Coast later in the year and I thought the girls will be old enough to keep a diary so this is what I have come up with.

I have covered on our Stampin’ Ups! On Board Art Journal in the lovely new Colour Rich Razzleberry and Cottage Garden Paper.  I have then used my new Big Shot (sooooo excited) to create a Top Note Die and the letters and numbers are also made using the big shot and then I have coated them with Crystal Effects.  The butterflies are from the set “Flight of the Butterfly”.  Now I have to come up with a second book for Jaimee, of course she wants something brown and yellow, not sure its going to look so pretty lol!!

Come back and check what else I have been playing with and I promise, promise, promise it won’t be 6 months in between posts.

Happy Stampin 🙂


raelene.jpgHi All

This post today is a good but bad post.  While I love the way the card has turned out, I just wish I never had to make it.  I made this card for my wonderful Maternal Child Health nurse who I found out last week has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Raelene was a wonderful support to me (us) not only when I was a new mum but also as our girls grew up. She was always a friendly, reassuring (but honest) voice on the other end of the phone, even if I had to listen to her trying to convince me that her beloved football team was better than mine!!!

Raelene our thoughts are with you and can’t thank you enough for helping us when we needed you, we hope we can be here in any form when you need something 🙂

The card is made using the very yummy Parisian Breeze Paper, chocolate chip, Very Vanilla and Kraft card stock  and the very versatile Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set.  I am going to be said to see Parisian Breeze paper disappear at the end of November.

Hope you are all well and will be back soon with more

Happy Stampin 🙂

This is my first attempt at a challenge of any description so here goes!!!  I have been meaning to participate for a long time and I really liked these colours together so I thought it was about time I got my act into gear.  Here are the colours I had to play with.


and here is my creation


My card base is Real Red (not a colour I use a heap, besides at Christmas)

Then I added a layer of So Saffron that I have corner rounded in two corners and punched several rows of piercing

Then a layer of whisper white, again I have conrner rounded two corners

Finally a layer of Regal Rose, corner rounded again, and stamped the main rose out of Fifth Avenue Floral in Regal Rose.

I then used my aquapainter to watercolur the main image again using Regal Rose and So Saffron Re-Inkers, some So Saffron Ribbon and a scallop circle in Real Red, a So Saffron 1 3/8 Circle Punch and a 1 1/4 Punch using Whisper White and the greeting is from the hostess set Best yet which I have inked using my markers

Hope you like it

Hi All

As always firstly my apologies for being absent for a long time.  I got retrenched from my real job of 15 years about a month ago and then it was school holidays and to be perfectly honest I have a serious case of  “lost mojo” I am hoping my wish jar may just come with a free mojo lol!!

My eldest daughter, Grace is turning 8 next Friday and all she wants for her birthday is a “Wish Jar”, apparantly a “Wish Jar” is a jar you make wishes into!!  I saw the new Summer Love Rub Ons in the new Spring Mini Catalogue and thought they would do beautifully.

Sorry the photos aren’t great but it was really hard to take a photo of.   Anyway enough of my whinging, I am going to  have a secret wish for my “mojo ” to return so hopefully it will work and I will post more regularly 🙂

Happy Stampin 🙂
