Carousel Birthday Vellum Gift Bag



The Carousel Birthday set has become a firm favourite for me! I knew I really liked it as soon as I went through the new catalogue... but I didn't expect to use it so much!  It's seeing a LOT of use!  So not only do I have a class coming up in my schedule that features this suite of products, but I've been designing some upcoming stamp clubs with it too.

Today I've created a Vellum box with the Gift Bag Punch board, so its a bit see through to give you a hint of what is inside.  The banner on the box is made with paper from the Cupcakes and Carousels Paper stack, and I have added a Carousel pony and coloured it with our new Watercolor Pencils and blender pens. Very happy with how it turned out!  It would be perfect for a little girls birthday party!

Aren't the colours in that paper DEVINE???  Here are the papers to show you:

These colours are right up my alley and I love them!!!!  I love that the smaller paper stacks are 6"x6" and perfect for cards... and you get 48 sheets in a pack so they are awesome value!

Here's a product list should you wish to make your own...

Lift me up Balloons!


Here's a little card that I designed a couple of weeks back... I've used the Lift me Up bundle teamed with the "Carried Away" DSP.  This lovely paper is a free item in our Sale-A-Bration catalogue, so its yours with a $90 purchase.  I've been enjoying this paper because it's actually very versatile with a range of designs... not just balloons either.  There are dots and stripes and other cool shapes in the awesome colours you see above... Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Night of Navy and Smoky slate.

I love the big hot air balloon framelit! Event though its intricate, it cuts easily.  I've used the stripes behind it (also framelits in the set) which helps the balloon stand out against the background.

If you would like to order any of these items for yourself you can click on the images below, or visit the Online Store to go shopping with the full catalogues..... and right now its Sale-A-Bration which means you get a free item for every $90 you spend!  Woohoo!

Video Tutorial: Easy note cards with a vellum window



Today's cards are so simple its silly!  I used the new 'Stylish Stems' framelits to cut a negative image of this flower.  This is a great set because you can use it to create negative OR positive images... making it super versatile and a bit different too.

I've created a video tutorial to show you how I did it, and you'll notice its a pretty quick video because they are quick and easy cards! Here it is...

Enjoy Life and Have fun!



Thats the sentiment on this simple card today!

This sentiment is from our "Suite Sentiments" stamp set in the new Occasions catalogue.  I've stamped it in Bermuda Bay ink on Pool Party cardstock, and "flagged" the ends.  Behind that is a white lace doily with a little silver metallic thread.  The DSP is from the gorgeous "Cupcakes and Carousels" paper stack...  so easy!

Enjoy the card... I'll be back with more soon (To order these or other items click on the "Shop Now" button)

Silver edged Lace Doilies and the NO STAMPING challenge!


On Saturday night I had the pleasure of hosting a "Virtual Slumber Party" with my team on our Facebook Forum.  This was something i've been wanting to do for a while, and I am so glad we did it!  Even though quite a few girls were away, those that were able to attend tell me they had a great time.

So what IS a Virtual Slumber party? Basically its when we run a series of games and challenges on our team discussion site as an event.... we did a couple of challenges during the evening and the card you see here today is my own attempt at one of the challenges. This particular challenge was a "No Stamping" challenge!  Do you know how hard it is to ask a stamper to create a project without stamps??  But I was seriously impressed at the submissions.... there were 3D projects including a bookmark and a box.  My own attempt was this card... and even though there's no stamps, I did use a word from the Sunshine Sayings framelits.  The main feature though for me is the silver edged doilies... I mentioned a couple of days ago that I would show you what I did with them, and here they are :-)  If you would like to see a video of how I embossed them click HERE.



Here's a close up of today's card:



The silver ribbon on this card is a free item in our SAB catalogue... the Metallic Glitter ribbon twin pack.

Enjoy!
