This page is about some beautiful friends I have - and I have coordinated my flowers with the colours of our clothes in the photo - aren't I fortunate the colours all look soooo yummy together!!

More GREAT cardmaking ideas!

You know how busy it gets leading up to Christmas and all those cards you want to make?  Here is an amazing solution!!  Everything is ready in this cardmaking kit - cards, paper, envelopes, bakers twine, and liners for the envelopes!! Awesome!!

Once again all I had to do was stamp my greeting on the front!! So dig up all those old Christmas stamps you have stashed, dust them off and stamp away!!  You'll have 8 cards done before you know it!!!

Great gift ideas!!

These adorable little muslin gift bags are awesome!!  A couple of stamped images, maybe a bit of ribbon or twine, even a tag or two, and hey presto!!  the gift packaging is as fabulous as the gift inside!!

This way, I can give a couple of little home made bikkies for the recipients, and it will look so gorgeous, they wont know that I'm only an adequate cook!! hehehehehe

Use your catalogue for ideas!!!

Our Annual Catalogue has soooo many great projects and ideas!!!  Whenever I'm stuck for an idea, it is my 'go to ' place to get me started!!  

This card idea was created by Robyn, but see where Stampin' Up! helped her out on page 112 - hasn't she come up with a fabulous adaptation!!! 

And this little note book comes straight from page 130 - love it!!  It's soooo much easier to create when someone else has done ALL the thinking for you!!

Same Card, - Different Colours!!

Remember this card?

I fell in love with Venetian Romance DSP when I made this card..... but the layout or style of the card got me thinking, so..........

I created the exact same card but used different colours and DSP.  This one uses the lovely Winter Frost Patterns Stack which is full of beautiful coloured paper that is just the right size for making cards!!  Gorgeous colours and so simple to use!!

And this card uses Gingham Garden DSP which is so much fun and joy all rolled into lovely designs!!  I've coordinated the paper with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight with some Night of Navy as a feature!!

And look at that - three quick and simple cards - all very different and all lovely!!

Christmas Banner

This is one of the new kits in the Holiday Catalogue - and isn't it just so divine?! 

I LOVE the colours!!

This kit includes 4 rosettes ready to be put together, 5 buttons, 3 different ribbons, 3 silver glitter die cut snowflake embellishments, and 10 large rhinestone jewels!!

I added some flags to the basic kit and then stenciled them with the letters for joy - but everything else comes from this little Christmas Banner Kit - and it is just sooooooo lovely!!

Floral Fun

These are some of the display items from my recent Open Day and Catalogue Launch!

This little bunch of flowers was my favourite.  I put them in an old promite jar that had been painted on the inside.  The flowers themselves have been copied from the catalogue on page 95 - and they look so lovely and fresh and just like spring!!

Thankful Tablescape

Another new product from the Holiday Catalogue is the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit.   It has all the supplies to create a beautiful table setting for 10 dinner guests.  


I have used this gorgeous little kit to do some more scrapbooking!!   I have some wooden placemats I found in a second hand shop somewhere, and I decided to embellish them for my wall!

So, I have used the menu sheet for my journalling piece, and then I have used all the other elements for the embellishments on the page!! 

What do you think?
