Global Design Project 071 | Theme Challenge

Welcome to my Blog..

This week for Global Design Project we are doing 3D – Off the Page!


This  is a fun little project and it just sort of came together…….

I have been getting things ready for my market this Saturday and the other day purchased some candles and this great jar. Now I was going to store lavender in this jar….

but then read that GDP was doing a 3D project…..OK I can make this work. This will be a great display item.

With few little pieces of ribbon, gold thread and some flowers this is what I came up with.

Its getting closer……

It’s Wednesday night and only 2 days left to get everything ready…

ready for what, I hear you say.

Ready for the Moss Vale Night Market..

If your in the area please call in and say Hi!

Anyway here is what I have been working on…


I am so please with how these have worked out and they will be a great part to my display.

I’m hoping to run a class on making these as I can see these as great gifts or even part of a display for a Wedding or Engagement Party.

If you are interested in learning how to make these or be apart of a class then please contact me.

2017 Calendar – Part 1


The other day on Facebook some of my friends were discussing Calendars and the different ways to make them. As I haven’t made one for myself so far I decided well why not know!

It’s the beginning of a new year and a new calendar is needed.

The idea for this A-Frame stand came from a Class I taught at my local Church many years ago, where we made a stand to hold some wonderful Bible Verses.


Now this is only Part 1 as all I have done so far is make the stand and write up a tutorial.

Actually its more like a “Pictorial” as there are more photos and not much writing. But I hope I have explained it well enough for you.

The Tutorial only covers the making of the A-frame Stand and Part 2 will cover the Calendar, which will be available in coming days. I also didn’t go into decorating the stand, that I will leave up to you. But i have listed below some of the items used. Not all of these items are listed in the PDF.

Click on the Link a-frame-stand-and-calander-part-1 for PDF or you can find in my Tutorials.

I hope you enjoy the PDF and that you will join me for Part 2.

Paper Stars, Christmas Decorations


This is a FUN little Christmas Decoration that I have been making for the past 3 months and selling in a local shop – @Highlands Handmade and they have been very good little sellers. they use up all that left over sheets of Designer Series Paper. Not suitable for card stock as it is too heavy.

I saw this originally on Pinterest as Scandinavian Fabric Stars and thought if it can be done in Fabric …I can do it in Paper. so with a few minor changes here it is.

The Instructions can be found in my Tutorials or Click the link below.


Happy Star making and a MERRY CHRISTMAS




Shhhhhh….Don’t tell Aaron! Global Design Project #023

This year my eldest son turns….21!

Wow! a major milestone for him…..and my husband and I survived!

One down and 3 to go!

I’m still trying to sort invitations and venues….then Global Design Project said this weeks challenge was…..


Now Aaron is an outdoor sort of boy, he’s been a Scout and now is a Leader, is a member of RFS- Rural Fire Service and is a diesel mechanic….

what great opportunity to make him a card.

I wanted to do something that had a masculine feel to it.

A CRATE…..with an EXPLOSION of BALLOONS coming out of it…

Had never done a Card in a Box before, this will be interesting!



I stamped my box and extra card stock with the Hardwood stamp and then cut it up to create the reinforced sides of the crate.

The balloons was stamped with Balloon Celebration and highlighted with Wink of Stella- Clear.

The large numbers cut from Glimmer Paper makes them pop out from amongst the balloons.

The Instructions for the box I used the You Tube clip by Tanya Bell.

Best Thoughts


I’m finding that this is becoming one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! Stamp Sets.
Here I have stamped on water colour paper with black Stazon Ink and water coloured the flower with Ink pads and blender pen. I have used a combination of colours in the flower petals and leaves and to give it a little more depth I have lightly coloured around the flower.
I didn’t want this to be a card so it has been mounted in a frame and finished with lace and linen thread.
This stamp set is a Hostess Set that you can earn when you have a Workshop and sales over $250.00. So book a workshop today and you could also have this beautiful Stamp to play with
Keep on Stampin’

Mothers Day

I’m a bit late with this..but I would like to share with you what we did in our Mother’s Day Class last Friday night.
This idea was CASed from Jo Hooper, when she posted this on Facebook I loved it. This would make a nice gift, for Birthday’s,Engagements, Weddings, or just a nice Thank You Gift.
Wasn’t sure on how but after a bit of research, found out. It looks so hard but it is so simple. If you want to know more contact me and book in a class.
