Emily Rose Ribbons and Bows workshop...

I just love this workshop! It's using one of our new SB Foundations papers called "Emily Rose", hence the name! I like this one not only because it looks good, but there are a few techniques in this workshop that you may not always use in your cardmaking. There's fancy ribbon work, perforations of card, tear off bookmark, gift holder and punching. If you also just love it, please give me a call and book in your workshop. If you want to run it from my home, not a problem, just express an interest and day or night preference and I'll see what I can do.
Hope you have a Fabulously creative week. I'll post more on Wednesday about our great retreat we just had!!!
Chat then.

Princess layout workshop

This layout is a workshop that kaszazz offer. It is using the kaszazz rub ons. They are awesome. They differ from some of the regular rubons in that they are quite solid and clear. They are not flimsy, is what I"m trying to say!! This layout uses some paper from our SB foundations range , which is a new release. If you've not had much experience with rubons before, then this is a workshop not to be missed. It will teach you all you need to know about them and give you valuable experience using them.
 I hope you're having a creative week, I'm off to tidy my craft area, yet again!!!

Something a little different...

Recently I received a beautiful big box of card making kits and bag toppers from a subscription renewal.
It was Meagan's birthday, so I decided to make her a card from this box and a bag topper. It was so superbly easy and I had so much fun doing it. It really is fun to make cards from a kit sometimes- it just takes off the pressure and allows you to enjoy. Well I hope you enjoy this pic and feel inspired to break open one of your card making kits and have fun creating!!!
Happy creating

My October page!!

Told you I was going to get busy on my October page. Well, I got all inspired from our newest range of SB Foundations paper. It is absolutely gorgeous- you've just got to try it. Anyway, this page is totally Kaszazz, so I'll talk you through it seeing as I know all the papers and products! This paper is called Cyan Jade and has blue hues on the opposite side. I used some of our new colour rubons called Magic moments, which gives it a stamped on look without stamping! I stamped the butterfly from the Doodle designs bugs set and then punched it out using our butterfly punch. (it fits perfectly!) I used orchid pastel to put some colour around the butterflies using a blending tool. The flower was taken from what Jo Collingwood came up with at the paperific show. The flower is made using the 3 size scallop punches and although you can't see it here, it's been distressed and the paper split, so it looks really good! The leaves were made using our Ezy-press die cutting and embossing machine. The leaf dies are part of a set called 'box #6' .  Around the edges of the paper I used the acrylic paint dabber, hazelnut , and then finished off the edging with dark brown chalk ink.
Whew, that was quite a description, hope you're still with me!! Well, I hope you continue through your week with love and creativity!
                   Take care

Christmas cards from Team Training day!

I had to make some samples for Team training day in September and these are what I came up with. The Santa one is quite ordinary, I painted the image using the Lyra crayons and used some gold smooch in a few places. In the reindeer one, I just love the new reindeer punch as well as the snowflake- beautiful. In that one, I embossed the snowflake stamp, white, then , using the blender tools and broken china , dusty concord distress inks, I blended the background. I loved the contrast of the black against the background. I punched out a circle and distressed that to pop behind the reindeers head. The ribbon and snowflake were the finishing touches.
             Hope you're having a creative week.
