Finished December Daily

February 28, 2015

067A couple of weeks ago my daughter and two eldest granddaughters, who are real Project Life addicts, came around and we spent a lovely afternoon, making pages.  While my daughter printed photos for the girls, I finished my December Daily album.  I really love this album, it documents so easily all the things that happen at this time of year.  The school plays and class presentations, the graduations and of course, Christmas lights, Christmas Day and everything in between.

You can see my granddaughters are well set up, they have their own albums, Card Collections and Accessory Packs, as well as a number of embossing folders, framelits and assorted bits and pieces they have collected from me.027

This is actually the best part of Memory Keeping, sharing ideas, showing off our creations and spending time together.  Sarah didn’t get to do much creating, the girls kept her busy printing photos to complete their pages.

0284These pages from my December Daily Album show us spending time together, in the pool and also touring the Christmas lights in our area.  Some people go to so much trouble and one house in particular was absolutely gorgeous.

Hope you are using Project Life to get your photos off your computer, phone or even out of boxes so they can be enjoyed and shared with your family and friends.

Project Life by Stampin’ Up!


Boys Will Be Boys

February 22, 2015

I liked a sketch on Sketch Frenzy Friday (SFF021315) but missed the deadline to enter the challenge.   Anyway, I love the way the card turned out and thought I would share it with you. 037I attached a piece of Sweet Sadie Washi Tape to Whisper White card and then embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Basic Black card. I stamped “best kid ever” onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out using the Decorative Label Punch.  I punched a partial Decorative Label Punch from Basic Black card and attached it behind the stamped label.  The greeting was then attached to the card front.   I embossed Coastal Cabana card using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it over the greeting using dimensionals.  039I stamped the “parachute man” onto Whisper White card using Memento Basic Black ink.  I coloured the parachute using Coastal Cabana Blendibilities and the man using Old Olive Blendibilities.  The image is cut using a Circle Framelit Die and attached to Basic Black card punched using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  The image is attached to the card front using dimensionals. Inside the card I added a length of the Washi Tape to the lower part of Whisper White card and attached Coastal Cabana card embossed using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. Well, what do you think?  I think it turned out cute and I know a couple of young men who would love it. Bye for now,

Memory Keeping Classes

February 21, 2015

I am starting Memory Keeping get togethers on a Friday night once a month.  The idea being that everyone who comes along brings their own projects to work on and they can use my stamps, ink, dies, etc. to complete their projects.  I will also have to opportunity to work on my Memory Keeping as well.  Of course, I don’t mind if you bring along cards to work on instead.  I am going to create a page and give everyone who comes along the product to complete the page as I have done, or in any way they wish.   We are going to be using Project Life, cards and accessories on these pages.  I will also give each of the attendees a Pocket Page to use in any way they wish.

This is the page I have created for this month’s class.

046If you like the sound of this, then please reserve your place as early as possible as space is limited.  You can check out my Classes and Workshops page for more information.

February Card Class

February 18, 2015

I thought I would pop in (I know it’s been a while, but you know how busy life gets) and show you the cards we made in our February Card Class.

0325I must say this was a very well received class with everyone loving the gorgeous Butterfly Basics stamp set and co-ordinating Butterfly Thinlets Dies.  The best part about these two products is that you can bundle them and save – love this idea.  Most of the cards have been CASED from pinterest (thanks for the inspiration) but, of course, you always add your own little twist.

As a little extra we made a bag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  What a fabulous set this is.  Not only can you make the bag as intended, but there are lots of adaptations to use it to make gorgeous little boxes and bigger bags.

0474The bag is decorated using the design shared by Brandy in her 20 cards in 10 minutes video (thanks Brandy).

If you like the look of my classes, then keep an eye on my Classes and Workshops page to see what’s coming up.  Please be aware that space is limited and that if you want to come, you need to let me know as early as possible.

Make & Takes – Party Time

February 7, 2015

I said I would pop back and share the Make and Take projects from our Brisbane Party Time event.


We created a gorgeous cover for our Kraft Grid Journal.  The stamp set we used was  Choose Happiness.  We coloured the leaves using the Old Olive Blendibilities, leaving a section of each leaf uncoloured.  A strip of Sweet Sadie Washi Tape decorates the spine of the journal.  I only stamped my images at Party Time, I finished the colouring and assembling at home.  I added a little Linen Thread to my cover (mostly because stamped my images too much to the left and the right side looked a little blank).


We also created a beautiful card using the Choose Happiness stamp set.  This time we stamped the flower and coloured it using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Blendibilities.  We also added some DSP, but I can’t remember which collection this comes from – sorry.


For our last project we decorated one of the cute Petite Cafe Gift Bags, also using the Choose Happiness stamp set.  This time we added DSP, a couple of banners and held them in place with a wooden clothespin.  A small flower, rhinestone and linen thread decorate the clothespin.  These Petite Cafe Gift Bags are perfect of giving a home baked gift (they are food safe).


I hope you enjoyed seeing these projects, as much as I enjoyed making them.
