Let’s Celebrate…

I am linking the following cards upto the challenges at Grab button for Uniko Studio Challenge

Uniko Challenge #3 – use Washi tape


Moxie Fab – use washi tape or stickers

I have made a set of 4 cards.


I used washi tape from My Mind’s Eye, Uniko Stamp Sets Background Builders Round in Circles and Fontiments Birthday along with 1 1/8″ circle punch and Stampin UP! ornament punch. I used a fine tip pen to create the bauble strings and added sequins, bling and wink of stella Clear to add some sparkle.

Here are a few more pics







It was the Footy Grand Final here today. Hope your team won!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend




Monster Gift Tag…

Mr M (15) has a birthday party tonight and I have made this gift card holder.IMG_3595

I have used Annabelle stamps Lil Monster’s Balloon stamped in SU ink coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set stamped with versafine onyx black. The gift card is a simple rectangle from Kaisercraft cardstock scored, folded and stuck with double sided tape with a circle punch at the top to make getting the gift card out easier.

Happy Birthday with PTI…

It is one of my nephews 16th Birthday in the next few days. I made this card using PTI Boy Basics Game on stamped with black ink and SU Tangerine Tango and the sentiment is from PTI Birthday Bash. I used washi tape TSS #13 and another I picked up from a craft show. I used hemp twine to make the game control and popped it up with a foam tab.

Happy Birthday Adele…

Hi. Hope your Monday has got off to a great start.IMG_3586

Miss E (17) has an 18th Birthday Party in a few weeks. Not your normal 18th – this one is high tea and the birthday girl has requested cook books. So you will see I have made a card along those lines. I came across a video of this card a couple of days ago and have made a variation of it. I also made a book mark – to go with the cook book she has requested!


I have used products including American Crafts CS, October Afternoon farmhouse 8×8 patterned paper, SU Pool Party Ribbon, ABS Twine, Papersmooches Digits (for the sentiment), Do Crafts Tag die, PTI Tremendous treats Birthday, Memory Box large Alphabet, SU a 3/8″ square punch, EK Success 1 1/4″ square punch and MFT Always tea time die.


and the back of the card I made differently than the video & inspiration as Miss E wanted a larger space to write on!

Something to indulge


I saw this little notebook over at lawn fawn http://lawnfawn.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/mini-journals-with-nicole.html and made a little adjustment to the measurements to convert to metric + I sewed my pages rather than stapled them. I stamped my inside (plain computer) paper (10 x 14 cm) with ABS Garden Silhouettes using SU ink. I used the inspiration from a Topic Tuesday at Stamp Embellish Create using plain accetate sheet and blue tack to hold in place while I stamped. I was inspired when I first saw the stationery stamped like this on the original post.  http://www.annabellestamps.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/topical-tuesday-61-spring-stationery-set.html

The cardstock is SU Floral District, the brad is from my stash and the twine is WeRMK yellow baker’s twine.

Some of the inside pages before I sewed them in.

Anything Goes

Thank you for all the lovely comments and tips. I don’t always reply to every individual comment, but rest assured I do read everyone and enjoy doing so. They often bring a smile or a chuckle.

Coming up for a long weekend here. A few jobs planned – a much needed trip to the hairdresser and new tyres for the car. Hopefully I will find some crafty time as there is no sport/kids activities this weekend.

Thanks for stopping – until next time



Happy Birthday Josh

IMG_2978I made this card recently for a nephew – he loves to read!

Is this stamp cute? This is The Craft’s Meow Summertime Fun with Fibi and Lilly along with sentiment from Good Times. I was lucky enough to win Good Times at the The Craft’s Meow’s September Release.

I also used SU CS and DSP (twittepated) and the piece of lace is from my ribbon box and spica pen on the sand.
