Paisleys and Posies - Stampin' Up!

I was lucky enough to receive this lovely frame from a very dear friend., Lisa Jalocha. I have posted this before, but I have had so many lovely comments on this and have been asked for a class. I thought I would also try and put a different twist on it, so participants have a choice.

Lisa's masterpiece.
My effort at something a little different.

I liked this idea so much, thought I would try and do a card. My sister-in-law and her husband are celebrating forty years marriage very soon and thought it make for a great card.

 Card inside.

I am holding a class for the frames, on the 17th June 2017. at 1pm, so if you are interested get in contact with me, as I have limited spaces left.

Stamps for your Scrap Booking Layouts - Stampin' Up!

Back again, here are the wonderful layouts that everyone completed in my recent Scrap Booking Class.

This first one is Linda's pages, with her gorgeous little grandson playing at the park.

Sue has scrapped her handsome big grandson out fishing for her first layout, and Beautiful little Amelia (grand-daughter) with her daughter Fi. So sweet.

Bev and Adele high lighted Adele's birthday and still looking for photo's for their second one.

Noleen show cased her talented grand-daughter at her dance concert.

Carol was very proud of her grand-daughter who has recently done her deb, and they look great.

So many different photos and subjects, but the same layout looks great. Thanks ladies for a lovely afternoon scrapping with you.

Black Magic Technique Scrap layouts - Stampin' Up!

A great day enjoyed by wonderful ladies, learning the black magic technique. I did this technique on a card and thought why not try a scrap layout using the same idea. This was a great way to try out our new water colour pencils as well. They were a hit. This is very easy, with great effect.
This was one of my samples, using night photos.
Second page with multiple photos.

This layout was created by Linda, using colours calypso coral and Tempting  torquoise , super cute.

Sue's layout looks stunning using colours, real red, daffodil delight and pumpkin pie.

Sue's second layout, using colours tempting turquoise and calypso coral, beautiful.

Noleen's with the vibrant real red, garden green, and choc chip. Looking forward to seeing it with the photo's.

This looks great Bermuda bay and daffodil delight, looks speculation in real life. Great job Bev.

Janet used pacific point, daffodil delight and elegant eggplant, it was dazzling. Looking forward to seeing the photo's as well.

We used a couple of different stamp sets, Tmeless textures and Gorgeous Grunge, were the most popular amongst the ladies. Whisper White craft ink a must and the white chalk marker. Our new water colour pencils were given a great work out, and everyone loved them.

Have a go at this technique either with a card or scrap layout, you will be happy with the result.

Summer time Fun - Stampin' Up!

Having a little fun with the back ground for this layout. Lola is enjoying swimming at Nan and Pop's whilst we celebrated Christmas with all her cousin's.

Back ground was created by first spritzing Whisper White 12 x 12 page with water, then adding ink with a aqua painter, brushing it all over. Keep applying ink until you get the desired colour. I then used star decorative templates, and sponged ink over them. Stamped with Timeless textures. Punched out a couple of stars and sponged them and added as well. Stamping and adding a few beach toys, that I coloured and put fine tip glue on them (let them dry over night) and this gives them a shiny look.

Stamp Sets:- Timeless Textures, Day at the Beach, Layered Letters Alphabet, Suite Sentiments
Card Stock:- Whisper White 12 x 12, Wisteria Wonder
Ink:- Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:- Star punch, Fine tip glue pen.

Greeting cards for Swan Hill Hospice

A great day had today, creating many cards for our local Swan Hill Hospice. Many local girls have donated many lovely cards to this great cause, so that soon we will be able to have our own hospice in our district. Our cards will go on sale at the end of this week at the new Swan Hill Health Medical Clinic. Thanks to Gail and Co for allowing this happen. All cards are $4.00 each and all monies go to the hospice. Please support this cause either by purchasing your greeting cards from us, or if you would like to create some cards to donate toward our cause this would be very much appreciated.

Welcome to another ESAD blog hop. This is all about show casing some wonderful products from our new occasions catalogue that has just been released. You may have arrived here from the talented Andrea Buckland
Here are a couple of layouts that I created to highlight a few different products.  This first one is using the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Balloon Pop up thinlits die, and also the ballon punch. Our grand-daughter Jordi, with her great mate Macey.

The next couple of layout are very similar, as I need to do 2 pages for both the girls albums. I have used the window box thinlits dies and window shopping stamp set on the above layout as well. I have also used the Big Birthdays stamp set, to do the flowers across the corners and Birthday Bright stamp set to do the banners at the top.

These layouts are super simple, so I hope you get an idea so you can create a few pages quickly. For your next blog hop on over to see Nerida Carter Fabulous projects.
