 I am very pleased to be hosting another Paper Share and this time I will be featuring all the beautiful papers from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. 
My Paper Share is a very affordable way to get your hands on a generous sample of every DSP in the new catalogue without having to break the bank. You’ll have the perfect opportunity to see which papers you love without having to purchase every paper pack in the catalogue ($189.00 value) unless you want it all like I do!!

2019 Holiday Catalogue Designer Series
Paper Share

 $ 45.00 (shipping available on request)

I have decided this year, to give you more bang for your buck (to cut the 12x 12 paper to 6x 12 rather then 6x6). This way you will be able to make three cards fronts from each piece, rather than just one front and the remainder becoming card waste. The 6x6 paper's will still be delivered to you in 6x6 size.

In total, you will receive 56 beautiful sheets of designer/specialty paper 
    • Each paper collection is placed in individual clear bag and clearly labeled with paper collection details (ie: item name, item #, price and coordinating colors).
***Payment deadline is midnight AEST, 1st Oct 2019***

It takes a Great Guy - A Good Man

With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought I would make another card with the stamp set called A Good Guy. All week I have been sharing cards with this set, because I know how hard man's cards can be, but this stamp set has really inspired me, which is so not the norm, I thought I would run with it.
This card is another quick and simple, where yet again the Blends are the stand out feature. I often get asked how tricky are they to use and I think with this stamp set in particular, they really are easy. In fact, to prove how easy they are I have done a video tutorial for this card, so you can see for yourself, in real time, how easy they are to use.

Oh and as always, here are the card measurements for this particular card:

Base: 11 1/2" x 4"
Basic Gray: 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Basic Gray: 5 3/8" x 3 5/8"
Old Olive: 1 1/2" x 5 3/8"
Black banner: 3/4" x 3 5/8"
Pumpkin pie 1/8" x 3 5/8"

And here's the video tutorial for you all too. Enjoy x

Don't forget you can purchase anything you've seen today, over at my online store and have it shipped to you, anywhere in Australia.

Happy Crafting,

Feel's like Spring - Piece of Cake

Happy Monday guys, I hope you've had a fantastic weekend. It's been very cold and windy here and I'm really looking forward to Spring, which inspired my card this week.

I found this beautiful card on Pinterest by Chris Slogar. Chris had made this card design in three different colours and I just couldn't wait to make a similar card. You can see Chris's amazing cards over on her blog: Buckeye Inklings.

This is my version:

It's seriously so bright and cheerful and just makes me think of warm days, time with the family enjoying the sun. I really loved colouring the fun cake on this card. I seriously can't put my Stampin' Blends away at the moment (which I think you'll realize over the next couple of weeks!)

And can we just talk about this stunning new embossing folder!! I have all the love eyes for this one. The text is so soft and gentle but still gives the perfect amount of impact. Another item you guys NEED to order right away.

So here's to a fantastic week with lots of crafting on the horizon... hopefully!!

Happy Crafting,

Scan N Cut Tutorial: How to cut around stamped images - Bloom and Grow

I'm sharing another super simple tutorial on what I really use my Scan N Cut for, 90% of the time. And that is to cut around my stamped images that I don't have dies for.

This really is the main reason for my purchase of this machine and the scanning function is what sold this elecrtic cutter over all the others.

This tutorial is simple, easy and saves me so much time. especially at Christmas time when I may be mass producing cards.

As always, the stamps, inks, embellishments and pattern paper that I share in these videos can all be purchased, through me, at my online store.

I also get asked a lot about this awesome mat that I have been using in my videos. It is called an Artistix Direct mat and it comes from a company in the UK. I honestly can't tell you how this mat has changed my Scan N Cut experience for the better and even though I have gone through 5 Brother mats, within 3 months, I have had this one Artistix Mat for almot 6 months and it is still as good as the first time I used it. And yes the do sell a mat for the DX version too. I also have now got 5 other friends onto these mats and they can't believe the difference.

So head over to the website and check them out for yourself, it will be the best thing you buy yourself, I promise!!:

Happy Crafting,
