Video : It’s time for ‘Action’…. Wobbles!

When I saw the smaller sized Action Wobbles I just knew I ‘had to have‘ them, and now my world is complete lol.  They are seriously the perfect size…  and for a person who makes very few ‘interactive’ cards, I’m hooked!  I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.

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



I’m so happy that you stopped by to visit today!

Video : Colour with ‘U’ – Reverse Confetti Unicorn Wishes!

I just had to have a Unicorn stamp and there are actually a few on my ‘wish’ list, but this one made it into my hot little hands first and for some reason it had to be a shaker and have sparkle!

In my video today I share just how easy it can be to blend Copic colours that are from different colour families.

Love my unicorn friend, hope you do too!  Thanks so much for visiting today, Big hugs,

Video : 2016 Same but Different Same but Different Christmas Card Series – No.1 – Wreaths (Six Cards)!

I’m so excited to be back this year with my Same but Different Christmas Card Series.  If you were here last year then you know that this series can contain many different ideas / themes / styles…  well, almost as long as it is the ‘Same but Different’ .

Today I thought I would kick things off with a theme, so lots of different products and every card unique but all with a similar theme and colour palette, all to make creating so much quicker and easier.

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













I’ll be back every week over the next 5 weeks to share another ‘Same but Different’ video with 6 new cards each week!  Looking forward to  seeing you back here for the next installment, Hugs

Video : Golden Poinsettia – Penny Black

One of the most beautiful ‘flowers’ ever and so perfect on a Christmas card, especially in ‘gold’.  Our Poinsettias have just finished flowering as we are now heading into Spring / Summer here, but they do add such a brightness to the garden, actually I have a memory that they are not flowers but that they are coloured leaves?  Do you know, or did I dream that?  Oh, and I also decided to film as I coloured.

So glad you could visit today!  Big hugs,

Diamond are a girl’s best friend, especially the BIG ones!

This time the call was for Diamonds / Jewels for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine and I realised that I had not one….. sadly.  But I got creative and this is what I came up with, it’s hard to see in this below average photo but each section of the diamond is a shaker…   so cool!

Happy Birthday to my sister and Happy New Year to you all!

My sister has an owl fixation and this year for her birthday her card had to include an owl, of course.  So out came this little cutie from Mama Elephant and I just love how he stamped out in orange.  I filmed as I created so you can watch the process.

Thought I would sneak in some challenge inspiration and as usual Michele never fails to deliver at this week’s MUSE and here it is in all it’s fabulousness!

Michele’s Card

I kept the basic sketch very similar although changed the orientation of the card and was wondering if would you could call a pig cute?  Well I think that this one is!  I also added a ‘slightly’ bold sentiment….

Setting the Scene… a Christmas Publication!

My apologies in advance, today’s post is a bit of a marathon.  I just want to share some cards that I had published with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for Christmas this year.

These first two cards were a stamper’s challenge using a sweet set from Clearly Besotted called ‘Set the Scene’.
