Simply Said !

I love both of these cards, they use the same Stamp set. I used Black, White & Wild Wasabi in the 1st Photo, and Cameo Coral & Chocolate Chip in the 2nd Shot. Chocolate Chip & Certainly Celery in the 3rd. I also did the flowers in white embossing. I used my New Stamp-a-ma-jig I also used Rub-ons as an accent. I think that these would make great Birthday cards

Acetate Christmas Card

Hiya, I have not posted for a while as I have been so crazy busy, what with School Disco's, Tennis, PTA meeting the list goes on and on, plus card making Classes & Workshops! I made this card at one of my workshops recently, I LOVE IT. I found a similar image on SCS cannot remember the name (sorry) but it is Taken with teal & Real Red cardstock, Real Red Ribbon, Acetate, Festive Favorites Stamp Set and Stampin Glitter. I also used the Individual Markers so that I could do one of the snowmen a different colour. I also used the NEW Scallop Punch, yippee. This is going to be this years Xmas Card, I think it is simple but funky

KaiserCraft Sweet Little Chipboard Handbag!

After I had done the Christmas Tree, I had the BUG, I now need to try doing something else in Chipboard, it is my new favorite thing, well after the Scallop Punch in the New Summer Mini Catalogue by SU. So I did this little bag, I have a Son, I got to keep this for me, I have loaded it with my pens & pencils, and has pride of place on my Computer Table. I love the colours in this, Olives, Chocolates and Baby Blue.
I was starting to think that I had lost the bug for doing scrapping & alternative products as I did a 20 Page Album for my Sisters recent Wedding, now that was a challenge! BUT NO, It is back Yippee. I also had a massive cull of my scrapbooking products today, as I think that was a barrier, and I am having a Open Home Sale of it all, well most of it, I am going to add a few juicy items onto Trade me tonight.

KaiserCraft Christmas Tree Workshop

So last night I introduced 5 wonderful ladies to the Kaiser Christmas Tree. They all had a fantastic time Creating, Punching & Sticking.
They all used Dashing Papers by Stampin Up, and all were so different. I took a couple of photos, so girls you are on the World Wide Web for all to see. All said that it was easier than it looked, it is mainly getting started, and away you go, the most difficult thing was when to stop adding!

Scrapbooking Pages by Sadie

I have decided to add onto here 2 of my favorite pages. They are of my son when he was just born and he favorite time of day when he was little.
These were made a little while a ago before I started Stampin Up. I haven't had chance to make any with Stampin Up products yet, as I seem to be making pages for other people at my workshops, but I hope to do some next weekend, Fingers crossed.
I counted and I have 5 days and 4 nights free until Christmas!!! I know how crazy is that. I have lots of Workshops, Card Making Classes, Touch, Tennis, Cubs, Parties, PTA Things etc etc. I have decided to just look at my diary page by page, day by day, or I think panic will set in. My new motto for next year. " I am sorry I am unable to help you at this time!"

Birthday Balloon Card

Hiya, Lots of posting of photos today, I made this quick & Easy card for my Son for his birthday recently. It is a Stampin Up set called Celebrate! I stamped 2 Balloon and the cut one in Half, I then added to top & Bottom, then popped some silver organza ribbon around and added the other balloon on a dimensional to added a little bit extra. I like the card at it is not too fussy for a small child, plus my son loves balloons, so perfect.

KaiserCraft Christmas Tree

Hi Ladies, I decided to get a bit more Christmassy again, It is really hard to get into the Christmas thing when it is 33 degrees outside! Yes the outskirts of Christchurch has been that warm, and being British I am still getting used to it being Sunny in November & December instead of snowing or dark and miserable LOL
I made this tree last night, once I got into the rhythm of it, it was all go. I have a workshop teaching it tonight with Dashing papers from Stampin'Up, so I will post photos of the group tomorrow.
It was really fun to do. A little fiddly though. I decided to you my own papers instead of the Christmas Range from Kaiser. The star makes a big impact at the top, and I added some Bling. Hope that you feel inspired to make a tree too

Birthday Card using Stampin Up Products

Hiya Ladies (and maybe some gents).
I just made this card this morning, for a girlfriend Birthday I used the relief from all the scallops that I use in card making, didn't want to waste the paper. I then used the Circle Of friendships Stamp Set and Dimensionals, to make it stand out of the page. Added Bashful Blue Ribbon and a accent, and voila , instant card, wish they were all that easy.
I like finding ways to use up al the left over bits & Pieces, I don't like waste!
I have a workshop tonight, so will be adding new pictures this weekend.

Season of Joy Stamp Set

This is a great card for Children, simple & easy to do, but effective.
They would need help with the cutting out, as they may cut off the star!!!
The paper is some pieces that I had in my scrapbooking supplies, but it went really well with the Lavender Lace in the Soft Subtles Range. I used KindyGel to add Glitter to the tree (super Cute)
I finished it off with some Silver Sheer Ribbon.

Love it.

Makes you want to have Christmas every year

Christmas Card using Stampin Up products

This is my favorite card, using my favorite colours. bashful Blue & Chocolate Chip, with a bit of Rose Red thrown in.
This is using 2 of the stamps in the set with the Scallop Punch and 2 circle punches to add depth.
This was mounted on Whisper White Cardstock. The Ribbon is not Stampin Up, but it went so well with the colours.
This was a big hit here in Darfield, as we don't like to use the bold bright colours, or the traditional.
I used the Stampin Spots for the ink, and again the Stampin Write Markers for the Red Circle.
This will be my standard card this year!

Dashing Papers from Stampin' Up

This is another card from Seasons of Joy Stamp set, this time I used Black Cardstock, Whisper White and Dashing Paper again.
I love the simpleness of this card, black, red & white a classic statement
You could add Glitter onto the petals just add extra dimension.

Christmas Card Class, love the colours!

This card was crated last Friday at my Christmas Card Class, it was so much fun to do, with so little elements.
Six of us got together for this class, we made 5 cards, and I will post them all up here.
They great thing about the class was, that we used just one Stamp Set. Seasons of Joy from the Mini Catalogue. $60.95
I used Certainly Celery Cardstock, Dashing Paper , Real Red Ribbon, a Brad, Circle Punch.
It was also cool to use the Stampin Write Markers, as we just chose a section of the large square Stamp.
There is a special this month on Markers, so maybe you can give it a try.
