Feels Like Frost ...

Hi everyone, sharing 4 cards I made using the gorgeous 'Feels Like Frost' Designer Series Paper.  My cards to day show the versatility of this paper, it is perfect for Christmas Cards but can also be used for other occasions.

I needed to make some more Sympathy cards for the card stash at work.  I sell these cards with the proceeds going to the fundraising efforts of our WA Cancer Council Relay for Life Team.


I have cut a strip from the top of the piece of Designer Series Paper so that the piece is 11.8cm, I then cut it into two 7.5cm strips.  You get two cards from the one piece of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.  The strip from the top I cut into a 10cm length and then cut this in half lengthwise to give me two strips for the inside of each of the cards.


This is the second card I made with the other piece of the Designer Series Paper.  The layout is very simple as the gorgeous paper does all the work.


Using the same sketch I made some blue ones for the men folk.


I will admit that I had a bit of trouble cutting up this paper pack as it is just so pretty.  You get 48 sheets 6" x 6", 4 each of 12 designs.  The reverse side of the paper also has beautiful silver and white designs.

Season's Greetings ...

This card uses the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Peaceful Boughs Bundle.


The card base is one of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories and More cards and envelopes.

Ho, Ho, Ho

Hi eveyone, sharing another project from the 'All Things Christmas' event.

This project uses products from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite.


This project is great for using the 6" x 6" paper packs.  By cutting the strips 5cm x 10.5cm you can get 4 cards from the two pieces of Designer Series Paper.

The centre panel piece of Whisper White was emboss using the Sutble Embossing Folder.

The 'Ho, Ho, Ho' was stamped using the Gold Delicata Metallic ink.  As an alternative you could Gold heat emboss this instead.

I did use some of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Christmas Time is Here Suite and some Red Rhinestones to finish the trees.

Christmas Bag

Hi everyone, sharing another of the projects from last weekend's 'All Things Christmas' event.

This little gift bag uses products from the  'Christmas Time is Here' Suite.


The little kraft bag I purchased at my local Pricesavers Store, they come in packs of 3 for $4.50.

The flower was die cut from the beautiful Designer Series Paper with the matching die with the pieces of Designer Series Paper behind the flower being cut using the Stitched Nested Label dies.  The sentiment was White head embossed before being die cut with the smallest of the Stitched Nested Label dies.

Some of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and the Gold Shimmer Ribbon bow were added to finish the bag. 

The ladies were given two bars of my homemade soap that fitted perfectly in this little bag.

This is a quick and easy little gift bag to make for a special present.

All Things Christmas ...

Hi everyone, over the next week I will be sharing some of the projects that the ladies made the 'All Things Christmas' event that my friend Marie Byard and I held yesterday. 

This first card is my take on one of the cards on page 40 in the Occasions Catalogue showing the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Suite. 



How to make this card:

1.   Die cut the frame from Smoky State cardstock.
2.   Die cut the two foliage pieces from Smoky Slate cardstock.
3.   Ink the edges of all the pieces just die cut with Night of Navy ink.
4.   Apply some wet glue (very little) and add the Ice Stampin' Glitter.  Set aside to dry while you make the rest of the card.
5.   Stamp the background on the Smoky Slate card base with the Snowflake stamp and Smoky Slate ink.
6.   Stamp the piece of Whisper White cardstock for the inside of  the card with the Snowflake stamp and Smoky Slate ink.  Adhere this to the inside of the card.
7.   Adhere the Silver Foil strips to the Night of Navy piece of cardstock and adhere to the card front using Dimensionals.
8.   Stamp the sentiment on the piece of Designer Series Paper with Versamark ink and White heat emboss.  Add some of the Ice Stampin' Glitter to the bottom of this piece (optional). Add to the frame using Dimensionals and add the two foliage pieces on either side. 
9.   Adhere the piece of ribbon in place.
10. Adhere the frame to the card front using Dimensionals.
