My little secret...

Hello everyone!!! 

Exciting things are happening for me this year! 

The past few months I've been working hard to design a few die-cuts that are currently being manufactured as I type! EXCITING!!! (high pitch squeal!) 

I will be launching and selling my die-cuts (hopefully) by the end of February, but I hope to have a reveal of the designs sometime in the next few weeks.

Here is the important information you need to know, so that you can get first class tickets to the reveal. Eventually, there will be challenges, and competitions so please please please come and join my facebook group below. 

Selling here:

I will also have a website, but this is still under constructions. I will post these details on my blog as soon as possible.

Coral & Navy Challenge

Image
Today I'd like to share two quick cards I made. I've been wanting to try this technique for awhile now - I remember pinning it months ago, and for those who follow me on Pinterest, I pin a LOT! So...I'm actually glad I remembered wanting to try it and I apologies as I can't find the link to direct it back to!
I also received my first order from Altenew. I got all their mini ink pads and a few stamp sets, and today was the day I got to test some of them out!
ENTERED in to Altenew's current challenge: Coral & Navy - find out more here.



It's a simple card, but I love the contrast between the vibrant colours against the white!   P.S I think it's going to take a few days before the Desert Night Ink washes off my fingers :)
Inks: Coral Berry, Desert Night. Stamps: Striped Florals, Label Love

November Card Kit & a Sneak Peak

Image
Hello all!!
I've been a little quite - getting ready for a big reveal!! I promise it wont be too long, but good things come to those who wait! 
In the meantime, here are a few cards to give you some inpiration! Paper Flourish November Kits showcased Kaisercraft Sail Away Collection. A theme I at first thought eh! Not for me! But absolutely loved how these papers worked so well together. It was probably the easiest kit to work with so far!
Anyways here are the details if you wish to know more about these card kits and I'll have more information for you soon on my little secret! :)








Here is a sneak peak at next months kit!

How cute is this!!

Image
Today I'm sharing a card I made. This little cute mouse was coloured as part of the 30 day colour challenge I'm taking part in. Run by Kathy at the daily marker. Details linked here.

This is a Whipper Snapper Design Stamp - Bradstreet's Birthday coloured in using my copics and a dotted blending technique.  I will be using this card for my son's first birthday coming up in 2 weeks. I'm rather proud that I'm organised especially since I've just finish writing in my other munchkins birthday card which was in August!!! Though I must admit I put a lot of effort into what I write in their birthday cards - I like to summarise the year...so I list down their favourite food, shows, toys. As well as a few sayings, and any other precious moments or milestone that has happened in that year. I don't scrapbook anymore - just don't have the time...but these birthday cards are me journalling what I want to remember!   Speaking of remembering the other week was intern…

Inspired by...

Hello...

Just a quick share today. I made these cards after being inspired by a Unity video shared by Heather Hoffman. Card link here. Such a simple, yet awesome idea! White pencil on kraft...I love it!!!

This was Day 6 efforts for The Daily Marker's 30 day colour challenge. I didn't have a lot of time today, and this was a super quick way to get some colouring in...

Colouring in Challenge - a finished card...

Image
So it took 3 days to finish colouring in this stamp! Which for me... and my always on the go boys, is pretty good!

For those reading my blog for the first time - I'm participating in Kathy's (AKA The Daily Marker) 30 day Colour Challenge. My first stamp was Whipper Snapper Designs - Bow Wow Birthday. A bigger stamp - something I'd normally not buy because it just takes too long for me to finish. So it was perfect for this challenge. I coloured over the 3 days (10-30mins each day - interrupted!) and finished it today :)

YAY!!!

Here is the finished card.




This little pooch is so cute - I've called her twitch after my sister's little dog.

Very please with how it turned out - A few times I felt like giving up. Not the best with prisma pencils, choosing colours and finding my 'colour' groove was a challenge (which is all part of the fun!)

Entered into Virginia's View Challenge - All this Coloured.

This is my next project: Day 4
Loving this technique, inspired by Kand…

30 Day Colouring Challenge...

Image
I follow Kathy from The Daily Marker, love her cards, her videos, always enjoy reading her blog. Well...she is doing her 3rd 30 day colour challenge, and I've generally just observed the great work that's produced (with many link ups to others also participating in the challenge). This time I've decided to join in the fun. For those who want more information here is the link.
For me, the challenge is to be able to take 5mins in a day and colour. I might get more time, of which Id then most likely will turn it into a card. But I'm rather happy with what this challenge is all about. To quote Kathy on her blog: "It’s just about adding more time to color and carve out a little time for something that makes you happy." And its does! So...here I go.
I won't be blogging it daily (HA! finding time to colour and blog - don't make me laugh!) But If you follow me on instagram I'll post daily photos of my progress. I'm currently working through this image (…

Crazy Birds...

Image
I couldn't help myself... Last week I splurged on craft supplies. Specifically, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous 'Crazy Bird' Stamps and their accompanying dies...as well as the 'Crazy Talk' and the 'Crazy Thoughts' stamps.
To be honest....I didn't even try to stop myself! 
WHY???
These stamps are fantastic! I didn't really like them at first either...but then saw Kristina Werners take on it and fell in love with that sad bird face and sentiment!
They were pretty easy to colour too...I don't particularly like my prisma pencils (not because they're not good, but because I'm never really happy with my colouring technique when using them...) but they worked so well with these birds on kraft card. It took probably 5-10mins max to colour each one!
Enjoy!

Christmas....in September???

Image
Today I'm sharing a few of my September Kit cards designed for Paper Flourish Kaisercraft kits. I'm pretty happy with what I created, even though at first I didn't really like the idea of coming up with a Christmas idea (at the time - I thought it was way to early to be bringing my Christmas crafting mojo to the table!!!!) But I saw on facebook the other week that there's 100 days till Christmas! 100!! So...I'm pretty happy I'm all organised with a few Christmas cards now added to my collection.

Super Excited :)
I've been published in Scrap n' Art Online Magazine! Whoohooo... :)
Today I'm sharing 2 cards I've created using the left overs from Paper Flourish August Kit. This kit uses Kaisercraft time machine collection. At first I was dreading this kit - brown and masculine, not a theme or colour scheme I'd normally choose to create with. But it was a nice challenge and now I have a few male cards in my collection.
Here is the first:


and the second card:




It's hard to see in the photos but I used Kaisercrafts alphabet die cut and spelled out the alphabet - used the negative to create a almost camouflaged background.

Up for a Challenge

Image
Scrapbook Boutique have a new photo inspiration challenge. Normally, id take a look at the photo and pick the flowers or frilly bits as a inspirational focal point. But this time I was drawn to the colours - mainly because I already had the paper but wasn't sure how to make them work... A little challenge and pressure to get it done before I head off on my holiday and this is what I ended up with :) Using Kaisercraft - Time Machine Collection and their Cogs and Clocks Die.
Entered into Scrapbook Boutique Photo Challenge. http://scrapbookboutiquenews.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/welcome-to-our-august-2015-challenge.html?m=1
