I began by adding stripes of washi tape onto white cardstock.

I then punched these out. Ready to add to my card front.

My finished card with buttons for balloons.

Can’t wait to see what you create.





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



A sketch challenge…

Once again I think I am going to just make the challenge cut off! I did make the card last night, took the picture this morning before running out the door for school drop off, then work. After work it was Mum duties at Orthodontist (good news hopefully not to much longer – fingers crossed), library (Mr M had another stack of books to pick up) then the last stop before home was the supermarket. All in a normal days work for all you Mums reading this.

Any way I now have 5 minutes to quickly pop this post together.


I used Annabelle Stamps Boy’s Party with the co ordinating die all popped up with foam tape. The green stipes are from washi tape.  Inks used were a mix of Stampin UP! and PTI.

Another busy day planned for tomorrow. Miss E has a doctors appointment – she has been suffering terrible headaches for the last few months and we have been unable to determine the cause.  Fortunately the last few weeks they don’t seem to be as severe.  After that I am off on a Choir/Performing Arts Excursion for a primary school competition. Then tomorrow night is the first of 3 performances Miss S (13) will be in over the weekend with a school dance production – Miss E, Miss A and I are going with a few of Miss E’s friends on Saturday night.  A little entertainment for me over the weekend.

Thanks for stopping for a peek

Smile Crocodile…

Hi There

This is my post for the challenge at The Lollipop Ladies #75 – Crocodiles & Washi tape.

The last challenge must have had everyone stumped as there were no entries so no one won the voucher.  I must admit this one had me thinking – I don’t know why maybe because there are a few things with the kiddos coming up and my mind is a little all over the place – a bit like that milk advert.

Any how on with the details of my card. I ended up taking a literal view of the challenge and because I was running short on time came up with this.


I have used washi tape from a craft show and the stamp spot in rows broken up with the stamped crocodile from Hero Arts Playful Animals and the matching sentiment. I did say it was literal!

Here is another pic


Hope to be back in the next few days with some other creations fingers crossed I get a minute or two tonight.

Thanks for taking a peek




IMG_3590I had help with this card from Miss A (8) we have used The Stamp Spot Washi tape #11, #31 and #56 and punched out using SU Delightful Decorations Punch to punch out the bauble shape. We stamped the bauble strings using SU tree trimmings stamp set. I thought it needed a light bling so added the sequins.

Miss A is totally obsessed with washi tape – she wants every roll she sees!

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.

Thanks for taking a peek.



Scrapbook Boutique Monthly Challenge


I am linking this up to the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique

I have used the colours to make my Easter tag – pink twine, various yellow and green markers and a hint of blue mount and of course the yellow washi tape. I popped the centre cross up with foam dots.

I had intended this to be the focus of a Communion card – another time. I will use this tag for my Gran.

Happy Wednesday.  Almost holidays – two of my girls finish today and everyone else tomorrow.

Thanks for taking a peek.



Marie is turning 40

I friend I met through playgroup is having a Birthday this weekend. I have made this card for her.  I think there will be one or two beverages to celebrate as well as lots of laughs and dancing with friends and possibly a few pics taken.


I have used 3 stamp sets (see below for exact names) from The Craft’s Meow to make the “Photo”.  Stamped using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point Ink and markers from Stampin UP!

Before I go just want to put my mum hat on and share some great news. Miss E (17) and Miss S (13) are swimming for their school on Thursday night. Well done. The best news is Miss E has made captain of the team – she found out earlier this morning at a team meeting. What a great start to her last year of high school.

Thanks for stopping

Hope you are having a great week



Happy Birthday Chanelle!

I have made this for Miss E’s friend who is having an 18th tonight.

You are probably saying to yourself right now there is a lot going on here on this card and tag!  As Chanelle loves owls – owls had to be involved. As for the colour choices – simple they had to match the owl necklace we bought at a chain jewellery store. She has a rather good sense of humour – so we managed to find (a child’s) back pack made of an all over owl print YEAH. We then proceeded to fill it with owl only contents YEAH. I’m sure others observing 3 girls and their mum shop were very entertained. I can’t say choosing a gift for Miss S (13) to take to her party tonight was as much fun.


What I have used

Stamps – Uniko Fontiments Birthday, Stampin UP! Pennant Parade

Paper – Cardstock – mostly bits a mix of American Crafts and unknown, Jillibean Soup Spotted Owl 6×6 pad

Punches and Dies – Fiskars 2″ circle, Stampin UP! Owl punch, PTI heart-2-heart #2, MFT Dienamics Traditional Tags Stax, Quickutz Deckhalls Alphabet, CC Designs Leafy Branch

Washi tape

I just made some washi tape. I used X press tape, tissue paper, AnnaBelle stamps Round for Christmas and SU Marina Mist ink.

I then put this onto my card front which had been stamped with snowflakes along with banners cut from cardstock.

This fits into two challenges




What do you think? It wasn’t that hard to make – just need to make sure you secure one end of the X press it tape first.
