Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Dena Rekow

Sunday, November 18, 2018


I've been absent from blog hops for a few months so it's fantastic to be back with my team CASEing (Copy and Selectively Editing) cards of our international guest demonstrators.  Today we are hopping with the super happy, super bright Dena Rekow and I can't wait to show you the card I've made based on her design below:


I was inspired by Dena's colour scheme and the roundness of the flowers and came up with this card:


I've used the Big Wishes stamp set here with my markers rather than an ink pad.  That way I could use the thumping technique to add on the second colour.


I also switched the colours around to see what that would look like and I'm glad I did becuase I think I prefer the colour combination this way.

What do you think?  Flirty Flamingo or Calypso Coral background?


Take a look now at what my teammates have created using Dena's projects for inspiration.

On Stage Melbourne 2018

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Yesterday I went to On Stage in Melbourne and had SO MUCH fun!  On Stage is the an event that any Stampin' Up! demonstrator can attend.  It's held bi-annually in different cities all around the world on the same day which means there are literally thousands of crafters getting together on the same day to join in the fun.  

Here's me with a couple of my team mates and several hundred others in background!


The day involves reveals of the new upcoming catalogues, crafting (of course!), LOTS of give aways, food, great music and lots and lots of laughter.  If you are a crafter in Australia and want to come along next year, send me a message to find out how you can as part of my team.

(Here I am with my Stampin' Up besties Jessie, Deb, and Kate.)



Check out my video below to take a look at all the goodies we received and to see some of the new stamp sets coming out in the Occasions Catalogue. 



I got so many goodies that I can't wait to share them with you!  Do you follow my Facebook page?  If not, head over and like the page and tune in to my Tuesday Tutorials which is when I have regular spot prizes.

Happy crafting,

Christmas

Handlettering Christmas Cards

Saturday, November 03, 2018

I love finding ways to make extra use of my stamp sets.  Who says you have to have a Christmas themed one to make Christmas cards?!  So I pulled out my Handlettering Alphabet stamp set and set to making up cards with Noel as my sentiment.


The Stamparatus makes easy work of producing cards in bulk.  Check out my video below for how I made this card up and how much time is saved by using the Stamparatus!


Happy crafting,
