Second video is now viewable, hope you enjoy!
Hi Everyone! Well I have a surprise for you, I have a video for you to watch, this is my first time at a video and thought that I would produce a video on my scrapbook goodies that I received in the mail yesterday. Something went strange with my camera, so I had to end up doing my haul in a 2 part series, so part one is done and I will upload second part for you to feast your eyes on shortly.
So without further ado, here it is.
I hope you enjoy.
Still uploading the second part, so stay tuned.
Hi Everyone! How is your hump day going today, so pleased that after tonight at work, I have 2 days off. So today I have been busy creating in the craft room, trying to make another Mothers Day card for the Hero Arts April competition.
I started with white card stock for the card, I then stamped Hero Arts, Flourish Background with some Colorbox Ink, Muted Moods, Antique Pewter over the top of the card front and set aside. Then on another piece of white card stock I stamped the Hero Arts, Large Flower twice and coloured the flowers in with my Copics. I cut one flower out to be the base flower and with the other flower I cut segments of the flower and then re attached each segment with some foam dimensionals and then adhered it over the matching segment, adding dimension throughout the flower. Once all the segments of the flower were adhered I then placed a Basic Grey, Eskimo Kisses brad through the centre of the flower. I added foam dimensionals under the flower and adhered to the card front. At the base of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Truly Appreciated stamp set and lastly added some pink rhinestones under the sentiment to finish the card.
Here some other views of the card.
I hope you like today’s card and that it gives you a little inspiration to go and create.
I will be back tomorrow with more and also hopefully something special for you to feast your eyes on.
Have a great day.
Hello Everyone! I trust that you have enjoyed your long weekend, I had the weekend off, but had to work today until lunchtime, but have had some time in the craft room to make some cards, I still have a couple of more cards to make for some of my family members, but thought that I would have a little break and share the card that I made for one of my family members who is turning 21.
I started with purple card stock for the card, measured to size, folded in half and set aside. I then cut a piece of white card stock slightly smaller then the front of the card and took my Papertrey Ink, Dot Spot stamp set and proceeded to stamp several images onto the white card stock with different Colorbox Inks,Tulip Field, Lilac and Violet and from Muted Moods, Dusty Plum, making sure that I covered most of the white card stock, each time I stamped an image I embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I then adhered the stamped white card stock onto the front of the purple card and cut a small piece of white card stock, stamping a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink, Signature Greetings stamp set along with using 21 from the Hero Arts, Bird Branch Alphabet. Lastly, I added slight inking to the edge of the sentiment tag along with some rhinestones.
Here is other views of the card.
I thought I would share some photos that I took yesterday in our garden, the last flowering of our Alstromeria and it is definitely Autumn here, what with the trees out the front of our house starting to turn rich shades of purple and red, cannot wait to share photos of these trees once they have fully changed.
I hope that you enjoy the card today and that the rest of your long weekend is relaxing, I will be back tomorrow with another card.
Afternoon Everyone! Hope that you are enjoying your weekend. I have been catching up on work around the house and computer work.
Whilst doing some computer work, I came across some old photos that I had taken of some Christmas presents that I made last year for the girls in our family, thanks to the lovely Jennifer McGuire, her inspiration for cards sets, I decided to make some for the girls to have to give to their friends or family. So thought that I would share a couple of photos of them. Sorry about the photography, not that great.
Also sharing some photos of my trip I took with a friend last September to Coffs Harbour. We visited another friend who had just had a baby boy, she took us to many places around Coffs Harbour, but this one was my favourite, the Butterfly House. I don’t know if any of you have been to one, and if not you must go when you get a chance, we got to walk inside the house and have the butterflies land on us and watch them feed, such an amazing experience, would definitely do that again.
These last 2 photos were my favourite butterflies that we saw on the day.
I hope you enjoy, the photos today and that the rest of your weekend is fabulous.
Evening Everyone! Well it is raining here today and has been nice steady rain, which we have needed for a long time, I hope that it continues all night and for a lot longer to come as like a lot of places around Australia we need a lot of rain to break this dreaded drought.
So I have been busy today trying to catch up on house cleaning, what with myself being quite sick for the last 2 weeks there has not been much action on that front, and boy has it needed it, I am about half way through, but I thought that it was time to stop and have some tea, which was some nice yummy Chinese and also time to share a blog post with you, that also has been neglected.
So today I share with you two little cards that I made a couple of weeks ago, just something for fun. I won’t go into details on how I made these little cards as they are pretty self explanatory, just wanted to share a little something with you. If you wish to know any details, then pop over to my sidebar and formspring me.
I also thought that I would share another peek into my craft room and another piece of furniture that Darryl made for me, he made me a wonderful paper rack, I store all of my card stock in this, he also made room for 4 of my Cropper Hoppers to fit in this as well, such a talented man, gotta to love that, looking forward in sharing with you the eventual finished room once I paint it out. But for now I thought you might like to see another little peek.
I thought that I would share some other photos with you of my holiday a couple of years ago, a friend and I traveled to the South Coast and spent a week at Batemans Bay, we stayed at a lovely house near the beach and traveled to various little towns around the area. The first photo is of a little town called Tilba, if you ever get a chance to visit this is a must see, it has a wonderful house with a beautiful garden set on quite a few acres and it is so stunning, I cannot wait to go back again and see it when it is Spring.
They had the most amazing drive way, cannot wait to one day see this out in full bloom.
This next photo was taken on our balcony, we had many birds visit us, these two kookaburras were the closet I had ever been to one, although I see them quite often this was truly wonderful experience, especially ones that were in the wild.
The last photos that I would like to share with you is a kangaroo that was eating some grass not far from our house, I was able to catch a little joey sitting in his mummas pouch, I used to own a pet Kangaroo so for me this is always special to see these creatures up close again.
I hope that you enjoyed the cards, the photo of my craft room and some photos of my travels, this blog post with these photos are for those lovely ladies overseas who may enjoy seeing the lovely animals that Australia has to offer.
Have wonderful night or day where ever you may be.
I am off to play in the craft room now.
Hugs to you all!
Hello Everyone! Sorry for the MIA situation again, I have had a lot going on in life over the last week and not all was good, but I am hoping that things are starting to get back on track again.
So today’s card has been made for the wonderful, kind and generous Jennifer McGuire, Michelle over at Flickr organised all us girls to make a card for her, to cheer her up a bit considering her Husband was caught in Germany due to the Iceland, volcano. So hence here is the card that I made for her.I started with white card stock, cut to size and folded in half, I stamped Papertrey Ink, Polka Dot Basics 2 at the base of the card 2 times with Colorbox Ink, Rainforest, Celadon, I set this aside. I then stamped the largest butterfly from the Hero Arts, Cling, Three Butterflies stamp set onto some white card stock and coloured them in with my Copics, once I was happy with the end result I added some touches of Copic, Spica, Silver to the butterfly and cut each butterfly out. I mounted each butterfly to the card with some foam dimensionals between each layer of butterfly. Next, I cut a tag and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings with some Colorbox Ink, Muted Moods, Antique Pewter, I attached the tag to the base of the card with some foam dimensionals, lastly, I added some rhinestones and antennas to the butterfly to finish the card.
Here are some more photos of the card.
I know that Jennifer’s Husband is now on his way home, if not home, but I do hope this may cheer her day anyway and know that all us girls are thinking of her always. Thank you Michelle for being so kind and thoughtful and for arranging such a wonderful, kind thing.
So take a look at all the girls work over at Flickr and leave some wonderful comments for all these talented ladies.
Hope you all have a great day and I will catch you all tomorrow.
Hugs to you all.
