Penrith Paper Crafts Festival

I am so excited - it is only 5 days until the Penrith Paper Crafts Festival. The show starts on Friday 4th until Sunday the 6th, April between 10am and 4.30pm.  It is at the Exhibition Centre next to Penrith Panthers on Mulgoa Road, Penrith.

Hopefully you can come along, enjoy a day out checking out all the latest trends.  Make sure that you come and visit me on Stand 28 and take part in a Make & Take.

I have been busy putting together some new display items for you, including some scrapbooking layouts!  For those of you who know me that is quite a shock as I can't remember the last time I did a full size scrapbooking page.  It was a challenge that I found daunting but enjoyable.

Hope to see you out there!!!!

Spiral Flower Die

I just love the new Spiral Flower Die.  It makes the most beautiful roses that wrapped tightly look like a rose bud and loosened make a lovely rose or double it up and you have a beautiful huge rose.
The second card uses the Banner Blast set from the Sale-A-Bration Freebies and was designed for the males in our lives.The third card put us back in touch with our feminine side with some bling.
As with my earlier posts, I am happy to let you know more detail on any of the projects but now that I have caught up with my postings I will be able to include more info in my posts.

Thanks for dropping by!

Mr & Mrs

Wedding cards are another occasion I never seem to have ready to go so at least I now have one.  This one uses Shimmer White and Silver cardstock, the Mr & Mrs and Flowering Flourishes stamps.
The second card also used the Flowering Flourishes stamps and was kept very simple in Shimmer White and black.  A bit of bling makes it look really classy and with different words would make a great anniversary or engagement card.
The third card was a bit of bright and cheery colour using Calypso Coral and Summer Starfruit.

Tag Top Punch Card

Male cards always seem difficult to do - or for me anyway, so the first two cards were designed for males.  The first card uses products from the "Celebrate Everyday" mini catalogue that has heaps of goodies in it.  The second card isn't the actual card that we made in class but the same techniques were used for this one.  I actually gave away my sample before I had taken a photo!  We embossed the Coaster Board, which I had never used before, but love and then brayered the ink over it.
The third card uses the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create a closure with a difference.  It is so easy to do but looks great and the Watercolour Wonder DSP from the mini catalogue are just gorgeous.

Card In A Box

The first project has been called a card in a box.  It actually collapses and will fit into a standard sized envelope and creates a bit of WOW.  We used the gorgeous Venetian Romance papers.  The second card uses the Positively Chevron background stamp sponged in 3 shades of blues.  The third card makes a great wedding or engagement card using Hello, Doily and Shimmer White card stock.  If you would like any further details, please let me know.

A Crumb Cake Overload

This was our first class back for the year and as you can see, I was in a Crumb Cake kind of mood.  We made a little desk calendar, a birthday card and the clear pillow box was for Valentines chocolates.  The pillow boxes are from K Mart as sadly our pillow box die has retired.  The patterned paper is from the SAB Sweet Sorbet collection. 
If you would like any information on any of the products used, please email me.

More Neglected Than I Thought

I am so shocked to learn that I haven't posted since August last year!!!!!!  Everything got to be too difficult last year so certain things got pushed aside and my poor old blog site was one of the casualties.  I haven't even looked at it so was extremely shocked to see how long it had been today.
I am going to try and make an effort to update each weeks class photo's even if I don't put a full description of what I have used or how it was done and if you want any further details, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to provide more info.

I also love to hear your comments but I have had to turn on comment approval due to spammers leaving all sorts of weird comments.  So please feel free to leave any feedback.

If anyone is still out there subscribed to my updates, there are a few coming!
