Come & Craft with me this Saturday!

Sorry if you have found the website down the last few days – there was some kind of issue with my website hosting talking to the domain name…or something like that…..but my IT guy (aka my husband) got it all sorted for us yesterday so YAY!

Just thought I would pop in and let you all know that there are still some places available for my Catalogue Launch Party this Saturday!  Come and join us for a fun afternoon of creativity.  Here is a sneak peek at the make n takes everyone will be making:

Colour Your World May Blog Hop!


Colour Your World Header
Woohoo – it’s already time for another Colour Your World Blog Hop!  I have been crafting up an absolute storm this month with loads of new gorgeous products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  I can’t wait to share them all with you, so I thought I would use a new set for this months hop!  First things first though, here is this months colour scheme:


I have to admit that this scheme didn’t really call out to me so I really had to push myself to come up with something – always good to step out of your comfort zone every now and again!  In the end it was a completely random array of cardstock scraps on my desk, and then the scissors stamp from the new Crafting Forever Stamp Set accidentally falling on top at just the right angle that inspired this card!

It’s another really simple card, but they seem to be calling my name at the moment – I think all of the spatial design study I am doing is rubbing off on my crafting!  Here’s a closer look at those cute scissors – just like Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips!!

Hello, how are you?  I have finally caught up from school holidays and those great long weekends, and also submitted my latest assignment towards my study so can finally get back to stamping and blogging!  I am breaking into all of my NEW products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue so will start sharing some sneak peeks very soon!  In the meantime I wanted to share this great card from one of my technique classes last year.  The Flower Patch stamp set is actually on the Retiring List so if you want it in your collection be sure to get it soon – plus it has a super discount! (You can find it here)
