Aussie Christmas Cards - Kaszazz


I have some real Aussie themed Christmas cards to share with you today. All products are from Kaszazz.
The same products have been used on all cards, with the exception of the main image, and the sentiment stamped on the insert.

 The first card is the Kookaburra

  Card 2 is the Possum

Card 3 is the Koala from Australian Animals

White card was first stamped with Watercolour Wreath and the Merry Christmas Sentiment from Ribbon Banner, using Archival inks, olive and red geranium.
This panel was then embossed in Stars folder, the edges distressed, and matted on to red card and fixed to a white card base.
The animal image was stamped in Watering can archival ink, and the Santa hat in geranium ink, on to white card, and the Gum leaves image stamped in olive on to green card.
The animal and hat Images were then coloured with pencils, and fussy cut. The gum flowers and nuts only were coloured, again with pencils. All images were then mounted to the card. A button threaded with red twine tied into a bow, and three small buttons coloured with alcohol marker were added to each card.
Small rhinestones were added to the animal eyes, glossy accents to the kookaburra's beak and the gum nuts, and stickles to the white button, the Santa hat fur trims and the gum flowers. Rhinestones coloured with alcohol marker were added to each card to finish the design.
All cards have an insert stamped with a sentiment from Christian Christmas Messages and each has a corresponding stamped envelope.

I am really pleased with these cards and I hope you enjoy them also

Till next time
Be happy crafting

The pine cone and branches dies are by Elizabeth craft, and the frame is Spellbinders Resplendant rectangles dies.

The pine cones were cut from brown card with the overlay in gold foil card, and the branches are in green card with a second set in green foil card.

Photo Albums... various themes

Hello again,

Two posts in one day woohoo! This time I have some photo albums to share with you. I have kept the album covers fairly flat so they can be quite easily stored in a photo box or on a shelf.  Each album has a theme-Holiday, School, Birthday etc in which the photos can be easily adhered to the patterned papers in the pockets.


and after - Enjoy the Journey,

School Days,

Into the Wild,


and Memories.

The patterned papers inside each album co-ordinate with the covers.

These albums are small enough to create quickly and easily - just enough photos to share without having to create a large photo album/memory book.

Happy snapshots!

Jotters... Assorted


Notebooks in all shapes and sizes always come in handy - I have them all over the house! I purchased some of these Jotters / Memo Pads, they are a fantastic size and have many pages - chunky!

I then decided to decorate the front covers, using a selection of products and themes...

Make it Crafty Tress - Joyful

Stampin Up Paper and a butterfly punch

My Favourite Things Dienamics - Sew Nifty

Stampin' Up - The Open Sea

Frantic Stamper Inc Die - Tea Set

Very useful and of course these are another fabulous gift idea!

Thanks for visiting
