Mini NZ buddies

Here are a couple of cutey cards put together for our special little men in NZ...

a little punch art...
 and some serious glossy accents action!

My Own Stamp Camp wanderings

And here are all the musings I threw together over Stamp Camp

... I think you'll spot a definite theme!  I've recently discovered a fantastic source of kraft paper and card and... well... I just cannae stop using it!

The first is cased from Shirley-Bee - I just love it...

This final creation is the workshop I ran (a 'guest presenter', don't ya know!).  It a gorgeous illuminaire based on a picture posted by Julia Leece absolutely ages ago.  I made my own measurements / dimensions - these look just great with a simple tea light in or little LED chains available around Christmas time.

Stamp Camp 2013

I travelled inter-state to get to Sue's Stamp Camp in Kurrajong this year!  It is SO worth it - the workshops are one thing - creative, inspiring, fun - but it's the company that really matches in creativity, inspiration and FUN to make the event just perfect!  There's always laughter, tears, noise, silence ... and those of us that just don't know when to go to bed!!

Here are some of the creations Super-Sue designed that we made over the weekend...

A fantastic recipe swap cover with recipes from all of us inside... too yummy!
 A great fancy fold card...

 A sweet notelette set...
An awesome 'oyster' box...
 Covers for my FAVE type (and size!!) of choccywockydoodah...
 My first Christmas card of the year

 Love the simplicity of this card - the sanded cardstock makes a great background...

Creative update from Melbs

Dear spirit-being; it's been 6 months since my last blog update.

I am failing my gallery, my thooooowsands of viewers **cough splutter chuckle!**, my creative energies.

Well... I am here now and have a plethora of goodies to share!  And maybe, just maybe, I will be back within the next six months!?!

First up - every so often I like to challenge myself to a 'ten minute card'; in fact, mostly its when I have to pull something out of the bag for one of my girls' friends! So here's one of said 'ten minute muddles' based loosely on a Kikki K card: -

Here is one that took a little longer! ... my preferred style, although sometimes I can look at a beast for too long and it turns out rotten!  Happy with this one though...

Hello.... Remember me?

Wowzy wowzers!  It's been over 6 months since my last post and I feel I need to purge!

And I might not get too much chance to create too much over the next two months as the family become 'in transit' from Sydney to Melbourne... yes, that's right... my craft goodies will be going into storage.... OOoooooHhhhhh NNNoooOOOO!  Definitely not sure how I will cope but to try and choose a SMALL numbers of items and stamps to keep out is just TOO HARD!

So in the meantime, some of my 2012 Christmas collection: -

 Above and below are cased from my gorgeous pal Sue Dean xx

Oh my - these two involved SO much colouring ... as my Stamp-A-Stack gals discovered one long long session!

 And this last one was an 'en masse' card made for our school class parents - 45 all up; loved every minute x

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

What a cracker of a day!  The team over at Crafters Anonymous hosted another brilliant ABMT event with new projects every hour over 8 hours (7 projects with a lunch break!!)

So here are my projects with a brief summary... I might run out of words as my brain's battery fades!!

3d Project - favours box - just love this and my DD8 wants them for her next birthday... 'just in prettier colours, please mum' !
 Next, a colour challenge - Neutrals - I stayed simple (like I am!)
 Punch Art - flower - I think I was more excited about making the box than the flower as I have admired these cake boxes for some time; the flower turned out ok too!

During lunch, after stumbling across some random rub-ons, I made this card using nesties to create the embossed circles...

After lunch, a sketch challenge - I made a card although layout was more designed for scrapbooking; loving all the colours!
 3d Challenge - Cupcake - based on 'the' flowerpot design, here is a cupcake version... although mine appears to be having an 'ice-cream' identity crisis with the flakes!
 Ingredients challenge - toothpick! This challenge really did... challenge!  All ingredients were fairly straightforward ... until the toothpick appeared!  So after a fair ole struggle, here's my lame effort!
 ... and finally - a sweet treat pocket!  Simple yet super!
What a great great day and for a great great cause xxxx

Here's a couple of blatant CASE cards I've enjoyed copying recently!

Firstly, my version of Chupa's bold and simple card - I love it as it crosses gender and age I feel...

Secondly, my only-marginally altered version of a divine card I saw via Just Add Ink by Judy May...  it's so pretty and I loved her placement of the pearls...
