I managed to get a little down time for myself after Christmas.  My Dad's birthday is just after Christmas, so need to get a card made for him.  He is a mad cricket fan, and you can't miss the Boxing Day test.  So thought this would be appropriate for him. I used a retired Stamp Set and card stock, but still happy with the way it turned out. Happy Birthday Dad. (yes we won the 1st cricket match.)

A little scrapping time found too.  Lola came to visit Nan and Pop, and she is just a delight. She is just learning to get around, not crawling yet tho.

Stamp Set: Perfect Alphabet
Card Stock: DSP Regal Collections, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Glorious Green
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie
Accessories:  Petite Pennants Builder Punch,  White Bakers Twine, Circle Scissor Plus

Another Layout of Lola, she loves this Spring thing, has the best fun.

Stamp Set: Simple Serif Alphabet & Numbers
Card Stock: DSP Greenhouse Gala, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Early Expresso, Real Red
Accessories:  Big Shot, Both Alphabet Dies, Square Lattice Impressions folder. Brads

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and have a Safe and Happy New Year.

Happy Stampin'

Hello to All, 

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.  Just thought I would put up a couple of quick posts before the big event.  I made these deco's, after being shown from one of my wonderful club members, Bev.  They are just wonderful.  Thanks Bev for sharing.

 I have used the wonderful Stampin' Up! fabric - Deck the Halls, the Big Shot, Scallop Square die, Fun Flowers Die and the new ribbon Seam Bidding in Cherry Cobbler.  Filled these with Lavender and they are a treat.

I created this card from a technique we were shown at Melbourne Regionals 2011. Cate Lynch from our home office showed us this great idea.  Thanks Cate.

Notice the shadowing with the words, and look at the new pennant punch, created this funky little Christmas tree, which is decorated with our Stampin' glass glitter.

If you would like to learn any of these ideas contact me now.

Happy Stampin'

Family Scrapping Layouts

I have finally had sometime to create a couple of layouts. I have such a great time doing them, music on in the background, grand-daughter over the shoulder, and wonderful subjects to work with.  Hope you enjoy them and they inspire you to get out the stamps and embellishments and create your own master piece.

 Emily, Stu and Lola in a family shot we had taken recently.  First page scrapped with this little princess.
 Close up of how I used the stamps, and then embellished with the glitter brads.
 Close up of how I used the Alphabet die and the bigshot for journaling.
 Marnie and Jordi, have you ever seen a such a beautiful photo.  I have used the new Tangerine Tango embossing powder for the butterflies.  The new butchers string down the side, overlaying the DSP, and bigshot and alphabet die for journaling.
 Close up of butterflies and the using the Creative Elements stamp for the background. Stamps are the best for adding a little creativity and personal touch to backgrounds.
WOW, look at how our 1st grand-daughter has grown. Simply stunning. This is Maddi, where did the years go.

In all the layouts I have used the DSP collections, they are the best for scrap-booking, never have to have a dull boring back-ground again. I have also used the Paisley Petals in Jordi's and Maddi's layouts.
Stamp Sets - Just Perfect Alphabet, Letter It alphabet, Baroque Motifs, Creative Elements, Extreme Elements.
Accessories - Big Shot, Embossing folders, cutting dies, ribbons, glitter brads, butchers twine. dimensionals,
Card Stock - DSP Collections packs, DSP Paisley Petals, Night of Navy, Whisper White,Baja Breeze

If you have any questions, or wish to order any of the above products, give me a call  (50302068) or just email me.(
Thanks for dropping by, sorry its been so long since I have posted.

Hi Everyone,
Just thought I would post a few of our stamp club swap.  Each month a few girls gather and learn more stampin' ideas, and we do a swap card, so when the occasion arrives we have a card to give.

Card Stock:  River Rock, Whisper White, Not  Quite Navy
Ink:  River Rock, Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Clear Block, Stamp-a-ma-jig

 This one in mine also, I actually just made this no copies. This technique is Faux Mother of Pearl  Love it!
Photo doesn't do is justice, you can't tell there is a hint of pink over the pearl, you just have to believe me.
Stamp Set:  Elements of Style, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink:  Basic Black, Pretty in Pink
Accessories:  Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Shimmer Paint, Dimensionals

 This card is by Cheryl O'Brien, how good is this,( Oops Not Stampin' up! don't tell)
 This next one is mine, another cased card, but I really liked it and so many elements.  Love this set, it is retiring, so if you want it better get in quick.

 This one is my Baby girl card for next months swap.  This was easy, as I just received a NEW Grand- Daughter ' LOLA ROSE'.
