Here is the inspiration for this month’s Moodboard challenge…


Obviously I had to use this fabulous colour combo and couldn’t resist adding a striped umbrella to add the ‘fun’ element!  I achieved the bright colours with my Zigs and this time resisted adding water on the images (love that option with these beauties) but, the background is the same colours but mixed with water!


How cool are these transparent Nuvos…   I am seriously addicted!


From here you are heading to the Scrapbook Boutique Blog, thanks for joining us, it’s been heaps of fun!

Video : 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series – No 6 – Keeping it Warm!

I’m sad to say this is my last video in my 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series for this year. And for my final set of cards I’ve gone with a theme, and today we are ‘Keeping it Warm’.

I was asked to create some ‘warm weather’ cards because you may have guessed that I live in Australia and typically our weather is hot at Christmas. And I know crafter’s that struggle with the concept of snow flakes on Australian Christmas cards, yes, Linda I’m talking about you lol.  This is also the lady you can blame for me starting my own blog and submitting for publications, I feel very lucky to call her a friend and an inspiration.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.















Thanks so much for all your support and encouragement, I have thoroughly enjoyed creating this series and I hope that you may have been inspired along the way too.  I still have a few more Christmas shares before ‘C’ Day so I look forward to seeing you again real soon,  Hugs

Video : 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series – No 4 – Mass Production Tips – Six Cards!

Welcome back, and we are already into Week 4 of my Christmas Card Series for 2016, can you believe it!  And today it’s all about ‘mass production’ and you all know that sometimes it’s a necessary ‘evil’ lol. but with some slight tweaks they can all be ‘the Same but Different’.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.












There are some great advantages to mass production, the pressure is ‘off’, you don’t have to rethink every card design and while the goodies are out, making multiples of a design certainly is a time saver.  Finally, if it means that your friends and family can receive a hand made card from you this Christmas, that is truly a bonus and I will tell you right now that they will appreciate it, it does not matter that the cards are similar or even the same!

See you again real soon!  Hugs,

Video : Cards 4 Men – Multiple Sentiment Stamping!

What is it about masculine cards, and why am I always running out?   So for today’s video it is time again for another card in my ‘Cards 4 Men – Images’ series.  And one technique that I like, particularly on men’s cards, is to use multiple sentiments.  You can watch my video below to see what I mean…
