Year in Review – 2012

Published by under cards | Dec 31 2012

Wishing my blog readers a fabulous new year!

Heartfelt thanks for visiting, for taking the time to comment, for your support and joining me in the fun during the past year.


I had so much fun putting together last year's Highlights post that I had to do it again this year!

Haven't we had a lot of fun in 2012…






Tear-Front Layout featuring French Foliage stamp set















Check back next year (ok, tomorrow… hehehe) for the next installment.


Happy stamping,

Clean & Simple Christmas

Published by under cards | Dec 22 2012

Here's a 'clean & simple' card design for Christmas, featuring Stampin' Up!'s No Peeking stamp set. That's such a fun set!

Here we have a Crumb Cake card base with rounded corners, embossed Real Red panel, and finally a stamped & punched image on top. And a glittery nose for sparkle!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags

Published by under Christmas | Dec 01 2012


"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"


If you're a cardmaker you'll love making your own sweet tags to add to gifts. It sure adds that personal touch. And because they're generally smaller than a card they're quick and easy to make too.

Tags are a great way of using up all those offcuts of cardstock. You know the ones… those long strips left over from other projects that are just too good to throw away. ;)

I had fun whipping up these tags using lots of yummy Stampin' Up! products.


All Stampin' Up!: Cherry Cobbler cardstock & ink, Champagne Glimmer paper, Patterns Stack DSP, Vanilla cardstock, Always Artichoke ink, Artichoke seam binding ribbon, linen thread, Little Leaves sizzlits die, Champagne Stampin’ Glass Glitter, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, 1 ¼“ scallop circle punch.



Happy stamping,

Brisbane’s Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Event

Published by under cards | Nov 21 2012

I was lucky enough to visit Brisbane on the weekend for the fun of Stampin' Up!'s 'Heartfelt Event'.

It was a great day of new ideas, fabulous presentations and 'wow' projects. Catching up with team members and other demo friends topped off a perfect day. We saw many different projects to those on show at the Melbourne Heartfelt Event, and it was just as fabulous.

Here are some of my favourite happy snaps from the display boards for your enjoyment.
