Bags for the Girls


I first created these smaller bags after several comments  that the larger bags were too big for the younger girls, and requests for a smaller size.

 The bags are approx. 15 cm square, are wadded and fully lined as are the larger bags, and have a velcro closure and a longer strap for cross body wear.

The bags are sized to hold a mobile phone, a small money purse and keys if carried.

The older girls spotted them, but of course needed a longer strap, so I now make a longer strap with an adjustable slide buckle, suited to girls of any age.

Suitable for any occasion when you need to only carry the essentials.

Aussie Christmas Cards - Kaszazz


Our most popular Christmas cards this year have been the Aussie themed ones,(especially the box cards, which will be another post), which have mostly been purchased  to go overseas.

The stamps used are Australian Animals, Kookaburra, Possum and gum leaves, and the Merry Christmas sentiment, and along with the background papers are all from Kaszazz.

All images were stamped with archival inks, coloured with watercolour pencils and fussy cut.
The poinsettia is a die from Heartfelt Creations.
Stickles, Wink of Stella pens and rhinestones finish the designs.

I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I do.

Mermaids - Lavinia


How is your day going?  As a treat today, we have a second post of a few non Christmas cards to cheer you.

These cards were created using  mainly Lavinia stamps. Smaller images (crab, starfish and small shells) are stamps from Kaisercraft.
Backgrounds were first created on white card using Distress and Distress oxide inks.
Images were then stamped over the top using Versafine inks.
Completed panels were fixed to coordinating  coloured card bases and highlights added with wink of stella glitter pens and stickles glitter glue. Stickles  was used around the edges of the panels to create a frame.

Add a little magic to your day.

Card Set Stampin' Up Everything Eleanor...


The following set of 4 Birthday cards are featuring the beautiful Everything Eleanor stamp set from Stampin' Up. Using a green card base and a single white layer, here is a great way to use the same stamps in a variety of ways for a totally different look...

Mask and bunch the main image on the bottom left corner...

Stamp them in a row with the edges touching...

Same again, trimming around the bottom edges of the flowers...

Randomly stamp the flowers all over the card front...

Adding a faux stitched edge and rhinestone flower centres complete each card. The Happy Birthday wording is from Stampin' Up's Happiest Birthday Wishes set.

Hope you are finding the time to create something beautiful today,
