Finally I have had a little time to play, after lots of running around after hubby broke two bones in his foot. We had to travel 2000 kms by car to go see an Orthopaedic surgeon only to be told it will heal all by itself - still I forced myself to do some shopping in the big smoke while we were away. Now I am finally able to focus on Christmas and enjoy all the preparations.

Key rings/handbag charms

Here are a few of the key rings/handbag charms that I am making for Gallery Day at the Living Arts Centre in Blackall next weekend. I have tried to make them in all the colours of the rainbow (hence the rainbow on the box). What do you think?

Star Card

I made this card using a gorgeous Laurence Collection Stamp, Spellbinders, Sizzix, punches, Bo Bunny back to basics and Bazzill card. And of course twinklings h20's, flower soft and kindy glitz.

More Flowers

Here are some more little flowers that I have learnt how to make. Again they are so easy. I am going to have a go at filming a how to clip for these ones and the other little fella's that I made- stay tuned for that

Fireman Benji turns 8

My baby turns 8 this week - which I can't believe. He has always wanted to be a fireman (since he was about 2) so I find myself making Fireman themed birthday cards each year - although I am sure I will run out of ideas one of these years, maybe by then he will change his mind . . . . . . . . . . . hmmm I wonder?????

New Home

I had fun with this one - I love my sizzix Big Shot and find that I am using it more and more everyday.

Wedding Card

This card is for a special wedding that we have been invited to. The colours used are not ones that I would normally use but the wedding invite was in these colours and I am told that this is the colour theme of the wedding - I think it came out quiet nice. The corner pocket on the inside is to enclose a special gift.

Tag and Pocket Cards

These little cards are fun to make and look really nice. You write your greeting on the back of the card.

These are the little flowers that I have been busy making.
They are really quite easy but oh so cute.

Using different card weights and textures

Using Vellum
Using larger ready made Prima flowers and a larger punch.

Using the flowers

This is a card I made using the flowers - I think they are so cute!

Special Order

This is a card I made for a special order for my friend Kerry. I just love the cuttlebug embossing folder used on the pearl paper, it gives it a pressed metal type effect.

My Chocolate Ice Cream Box

This is a little box that I made for my dear friend Judith for her birthday. I call it my chocolate ice cream box because my boys think it looks like one of those ice creams with chocolate biscuit around them hehehe. I am so happy with how it came out. Judith's favourite colour is brown. I used my other dear friend Kerry's spellbinders for the main shape (thank you Miss Kez for that). I so now need to go buy myself a set as I am sure that I will make more of these.
I saw a rectangular gift box like this in a papercrafting magazine and thought how much fun I could have making it into a concertina type box. I just love boxes at the moment and really this was not that hard to make.
