The November CraftAlong projects are UP!


Hello friends!

Im a little behind this month, so I do hope you'll forgive me! But the good news is that the November CraftAlong projects -with their step by step instructions and measurements - are now available! 

The main project that we did on my public live video is shown above. And here's a picture of the inside.. (as you can see its a pop-out card)    

And here is the video to show you how to make it:

But thats not all.. there are 4 more card tutorials included in this month's class!  Here are some pics for you:

Here's how you can get your hands on them:

1. If you placed an order with me (over $60) last month then you will receive these additional tutorials for free. Each project has a step-by-step video tutorial, and I have also included a pdf with all the measurements - in both metric and Imperial.  You will also receive these tutorials for free if you are in my demonstrator team.  You dont need to do anything - they'll automatically arrive in your email inbox. 

2. You can also purchase them for yourself if you wish. The whole class including the videos and pdf with the measurement costs only $15aud (that's about $10 usd) so they are quite a bargain. If you would like to purchase them click the "Purchase now" button below. This will allow you to pay via PayPal. 

I really do hope you enjoyed the live tutorial this month... I have had some great feedback. In particular about how beautiful this DSP is! If you have questions, please reach out!

The November CraftAlong event is coming up!


Hello friends!

It's almost that time of the month again... where we make a project together at my CraftAlong event.  I often hold these events on a Saturday, but this month will be a little different due to family happenings.  So I have made this month's event to fall on Wedesday the 29th November at 2pm (Sydney time). 

CraftAlong is a live public crafting event where I go live on YouTube and you are welcome to craft along with me, or you can watch either the live or replay and make the project later. Either way, the video is full of tips and step-by-step instructions to make the project.  This month we are featuring the Meandering Meadow suite collection and I know you are going to love it!

For those that made a qualifying purchase with me in October you will be receiving a supply pack to make the project in your mailbox. Everything you need is included except adhesive and sentiment stamps and ink that you might want to add. The November project is a fun-fold card that you will really enjoy.  Its a great card for a special someone. 

Dont forget if you have placed an order over $60 with me in November you will receive the supplies to make the December project... stay tuned for more details!

Im including the link below to the video - dont forget it will be live on the 29th November at 2pm:

If you are not receiving the supply pack I have also included a list of items below that I will be using... have them ready to go on the 29th if you would like to craft along with me. 

Supplies for the November CraftAlong project:

  • Meadering Meadow DSP (you can substitute with other scenery-type DSP) - you will need 2 pieces, 1 for the card front cut to 9cm x 13.3cm, the other piece left at 6" x 6")
  • Garden Meadow bundle
  • Highland Heather A4 cardstock (cut base to 29.7cm x 10.5cm, plus piece cut to 2-3/4" x 2-3/4")

  • Basic White cardstock (scraps to cut sentiment label and fence pieces)
  • Highland Heather Glimmer paper (scrap to cut label)

New Online Exclusives are out NOW! (November 2023)


It's November and we have some fun new products for you to play with!  I've also been playing with some of them, and I am loving the projects I've created.  The card above uses the Meandering Meadow suite of products - including the Designer Series Paper which is simply divine.  

I made this card on one of my Live video tutorials, so if you would like to see these products in action click the image below:

And here is another card I made with the same paper pack:

The awesome thing about this DSP pack is that you dont need to add a lot to it to make a stunning card - the DSP really does all the work! 

But this suite isnt all that is new... there are lots of awesome products in this latest release.  The best way to see them is to head to the ONLINE STORE, and click on "Online Exclusives".  

I'll be showing lots with these lovely items over the coming weeks. I hope will tune in to my live tutorials to see what's new, and what you can do with them! 

If you have questions, feel free to CONTACT ME

Hello and welcome to our CraftAlong event for October 2023!  In today's live event we made a beautiful card together and talked about ways to support Breast Cancer Research.  Im so proud to be part of this community and I love that my viewers suggest ways for us to make a difference! 

Below is the card we made together today:

I really enjoyed making this card... and I hope you did too!  But in case you missed the video I have linked it again below:

Click on the above image to see the video. 


I also have 4 more card tutorials for you this month, and you are welcome to purchase the tutorials (Purchase button is below).  Please note that this month I am donating $5 from each tutorial sale to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Or if you are placing an order with me before the end of October I will donate 10% of the order amount to support this amazing cause. 

Dont forget if you placed an order with me last month, or are in my team of demonstrators, you do not need to purchase the tutorials as I will send them to you! 

Here is the button to purchase the tutorial pdf - please note the PDF contains links to a step by step instructional video for each card, as well as having the measurements for the cards - in both metric and imperial measurements.

Our October CraftAlong is coming up - and Im on a mission!

Our monthly CraftAlong event is coming up this Saturday the 28th October and you're invited! 

CraftAlong is something I've been doing for well over a year now, and its purpose to create a fun and safe space for us all to create a project together. I do a live video that anyone can watch, and you can watch whilst I make the chosen project each month... or if you wish you can craft along with me!  I find that many people like to just watch the first time, and then later they come back and make the project on the second watch. 

Each month I choose a different theme, and this month, as it is October, I have chosen to feature a "Breast Cancer Awareness" theme.  So you'll be seeing a lot of pink and you'll see me talking about Breast Cancer research and how important it is that we keep this in mind.  

So if you are free, I would love you to watch our video next Saturday, 28th October @ 2pm (Sydney time). Or you are welcome to watch the replay!  Here is the link to the video:

Also I am going to be donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) as follows:

  • 10% of all orders received from now until the end of this month. 
  • $5 for every tutorial pdfs sold (Tutorial pdfs are $15 each, and will be available after the public CraftAlong event)

For those that placed orders over $60 with me last month (September) I have mailed each of you a supply pack for the items you will need to make your card. They should arrive in the next couple of days. 

If you did not receive a supply pack then I have listed some items below that you will need to make the project:

  • Basic White for cardbase (preferably thick) measured to 21cm x 14.8cm
  • Bubble Bath cardstock measured to 10cm x 14.3cm
  • A piece of pink and white DSP (I used a piece from the Delightfully Eclectic DSP)
  • 4 Strips of Silver Glimmer paper paper measured to approximately 7mm (1/4") wide x 10cm long
  • 1 scrap of Silver Snowflake Magic DSP to cut 2" square.  You could also use silver foil or even pink or white cardstock
  • 1 scrap of Basic White to cut small banner for sentiment
  • 14cm length of Bubble Bath ribbon
  • Embellishments of choice. I used the Berry Burst sequins from the Sequin trio pack
Of course you are welcome to substitute any items as necessary. 

I used the Stylish Shapes dies (the square and the banner)

I stamped my sentiment with Berry Burst ink but you can use any pink of your choice

As for sentiments this is up to you but suggestions would include "Thinking of you", "You're in my thoughts" or something simple like "For you".  I used the "Thinking of you" from the Season of Chic stamp set. 

I know you will love this project and Im really looking forward to making it with you! 

See you then!
