Challenge #3 at Card and a Half

Well, I have so many cards to make this week, so thanks to Helen at Card and a Half challenge blog, I had a great sketch to make this one for my niece. (Here is my card):

 I have used an MME 6 x 6" paper stack which I love, some Kaszazz card, chalk inks, string, Kaszazz button and some left over lace I had in my ribbon jar! I love the colours in this one!
Here is the sketch!:

Now I can share...

Last night, we had a Skype call with my sister in London, along with my parents who had just arrived there from Adelaide. Rachel & Garret's wedding is in less than 2 weeks now. She opened her gift from me while we were Skyping and I think she was pretty happy with it! They are having a village fete style wedding with loads of cool things and I made her this guest book to tie in with her theme! (And a card to match!)

I covered the book in material and sewed a piece of paper on for my title and flowers and bunting to sit on. I hand coloured some white flowers with smooch accent ink. Used some thickers for the title and hand cut my little pieces of bunting from material and papers.
Inside, I made my title page with stamps and distress embossing powder. I also used some rub on stithing to tie in with the theme!
At least now, she will have a little part of me there with her on her special day!!!

Altered School days page and card workshop

Wow, I am so happy with this new project! This is the workshop I will be teaching at home this Wednesday. 2H921- Altered School Days Page and Card. Using the School days paper in a new way, with lots of Smooch Spritz & masking techniques, gorgeous double layered daisies and butterlies , finished off with a lovely smothering of Sticky Bling flourishes!!! And... as you can see, flowers really are ok for boy pages!!!
I love this pic of my little man, taken at a friends house a few months ago. His little mate wanted to make his own cowboy movie, so they dressed up with guns and siblings in tow, and the story involved one thief stealing jewels from the bankman, two cowboys capturing her and tyeing her up to a tree, lots of shooting with big toy guns, and much laughter from all of us ! If you would like any info on products and how this page is made, please contact me at
And..the very talented lady who created the original project for this page, was Saskia Charsley, great work Saskia!

Something for the boys

Well after doing a bit of blog hopping the other day, I came across Erika O'Keefe, who is a fellow Kaszazz consultant. I was inspired by one of her layouts, called PLAY! You can see the original layout here: Thanks Erika for the inspiration, and here is what I came up with!
I used some retired papers from Kaszazz which I love, and everything else is from Kaszazz except the Chipboard alphas! I am loving my new Alphabet- Eclectic stamp which I used for the word: DAD'S.

Yummy new projects!

I have managed to accomplish a few things during the school holidays, thought you would like to see this gorgeous new Demonstration Project from Kaszazz The Asian Spring Gift Bag! Created using the fantastic Ezy Press machine, the New Asian spring paper, some coloured card, gorgeous satin and organza ribbons and the Antique gemstones. (These look great with lollies in them for a quick gift or a Host Gift!) If you would like any info on these products, just email me @
Don't forget the new Kaszazz vouchers! You can now purchase a gift voucher for family and friends to the value of either $100, $50 or $20, and they can choose what they like from the Kaszazz catalogue to the chosen value!!! Ask me more...

Thank you cards and blog candy comp. now closed!

Hi all, well yep this is now my 151st post which means I will have to go and put all the names in a hat for my blog candy giveaway! There are only 5 of you entered so odds are good! Stay tuned.. Winner will be announced next post!

Here are some thank you cards I have had on the back burner, since I hosted my BIGGEST MORNING TEA in May! For the ladies who donated prizes, I made them each a card and lolly bag to match! Have given out two already and one to go! Think they went down well! So now I am on to a few new projects.... A guest book for my sister's wedding which is in London on the 6th August. Sadly I will not be able to be there so wanted to give her something special. I got very inspired by looking at all of her wedding blogs and favourite wedding things. She is having a village fete style wedding and so lots of bunting and flowers and stripes! I am almost finished the book, but can't let you see until she receives it!!! Keep a look out next month!
