Last day of the 2010/2011 Catalogue

My poor neglected blog, I'm so sorry to those of you who aren't on facebook and rely on my blog to keep updated (especially Sue who gently reminds me from time to time).

I'm going to miss Kimino Kids, this was my favourite stamp set when we first got the catalogue and I have not spent any where near enough time playing with it.

You'll find a link to the retired list here. But you'll need to be quick, you only have until 9pm tonight to email me your order and payment to

Finally, if you want to be one of the first to play with items from the new catalogue then come along to my New Catalogue Launch on Friday night (2nd Sept). $20 includes everything you need to make 3 projects, the 2011/2012 Ideas Book and Catalogue, supper, door prizes and a goodie bag. Bookings essential by tomorrow evening (1st Sept) so I have time to prepare everything for you.

Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue Launch

We had a great time last night at the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue Launch.  Here's what we made:

 Love the pom pom trim, the decorative label punch, the framed tulips emobssing folder and the Thanks for Caring Stamp set.  
OK so I have a lot of butterfly stamps, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for one more, lol.  And besides that $2 from every set sold goes to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  It's called Strength and Hope and I think it's a must have :)
 When I first saw this stamp I knew I had to have it.  It's the perfect male card stamp, I've teamed it with the faux mother of pearl technique which is just lovely.  Thanks to hubby for tying the knots for me.
 Don't you just love how shimmery this card is???
There were a few people that couldn't make it last night and we had so much fun I don't want anyone to miss out, so I was thinking that maybe I will run the launch again next Thursday night or Friday morning.  Let me know if you are interested and I'll let you know if I will do a repeat.

Things I forgot to share 3...

This was my favourite card at the time I made it.  I had the idea and got started but I had no idea how time consuming it would be.  I love the overall effect though and think it was worth it.  What do you think??


Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Early Esspresso
Big Shot: Many Thanks Embosslit Die

Things I forgot to share...

I found a few cards I forgot to share here while cleaning up my computer so I thought I'd share them over the next couple of days.

I really like the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit die for the Big Shot.  I really like the tiny little hearts they are just so cute and I love that the Full Heart punch fits so beautifully inside it giving a lovely little scalloped edge like I did on the last card I posted here.


Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze.
Big Shot:  Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Hostess Happy Birthday

I made this card a while ago and loved it.  I needed a birthday card recently and decided to add an inner as that seems to be the trend for me right now :)  I love this stamp set, I love anything free and I love anything that goes with a punch cause it saves me heaps of time cutting out, lol.

Thanks So Much

 Love being able to cut fabric with my big shot :)
I often find myself wanting to say thank you, but never seem to send thank you cards.  I think I want them to be so extra special that I just never get around to doing it, which is really sad cause the people I love so much and want to say thanks to get nothing :(  Anyway I did make this one (it was a little while ago) and did give it even though it could never be special enough to convey my heartfelt thanks for someone who gives so much to me.
 So I added sparkle to add to the specialness, lol
And I've been experimenting with insides.

I am loving this stamp set (can I say that if this is the first time I've used it???) made even lovelier because it was FREE!!

Bliss is a great name for this set.  One of the meanings of the word bliss according to means extreme happiness and this is exactly how I felt once I finished this little set of cards.  I made the cards during Craft Connect, a craft group that meets at my place each fortnight and finished the box last night.  Can you see the shimmer mist??  I made it up from the champagne shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol (email me if you want to know how).  I love the fine sparkle it makes.

Would you like to make this card?  Why not book a workshop?  It's a great time for a workshop as everyone who spends over $100 gets a free stamp set check out the details here.

OK so I tried to be clever...

Thought I'd be real smart and schedule some posts over the next few days to silence the critics of my neglected blog, LOL.  Turns out Blogger doesn't like me and decided to mix up my posts and post them all at once.  Enjoy the feast you never know when the next famine will occur (I will try post more often I really really will :)

Old News....

Here are the projects we made way back in December for the Summer Catalogue Mini Launch.  We are already over half way through the catalogue so if there's anything you want you better get your order in soon (ie before the end of March when the catalogue runs out!!).
 There's those Presto Patterns Papers again.  Don't you just love the photo taken only one week before Matilda was born by the ever-so-talented Liz from Emit Photography.  She is only 16 weeks old but its already hard to remember life without Matilda, she is such a delight.
 I really like the Well Scripted sentiments, they are so swirly and they make me happy.  I'm also loving these butterflies, I really must make some more cards like this one.
And finally, I made a whole bunch of these little calenders for various friends and preschool teachers, might just have to post piccies of every single one of them tomorrow!!

Time is Ticking Away

These little calenders remind me that we are well and truely into February and the year is already speeding along.  Here are the pics of the calenders all made with the Island Oasis DSP from the Summer Mini.
