Global Design Project #GDP083 - Theme Challenge


Welcome to my blog.  It has been some time since I've played along to a challenge as I have been busy packing up a house and moving. My Hubby and I made the decision to move the beautiful township of Bathurst, west of the blue Mountains. It is famous for Gold Mining  and the Mount Panorama Race Circuit.  We love it here and are looking forward to making lots of new friends. 

Our move went well however, it did take a little longer than expected for the house to be finished. This left me with all my belonging including all my craft stuff being packed in a storage shed for more than six months. I did beg hubby to leave my craft room to last but he insisted on packing it first as it was going to be a mammoth task. I knew I shouldn't have listened to him. LOL


My Card




This week's Challenge is all about Sparkles and Bling and who doesn't love a bit of bling. My Grandson is turning 7 years old this week and loves Dinosaurs so I made his Birthday card using the No Bones About It ( Stamp set from Stampin'Up) and added a little bling using the Red Glimmer paper for the circle and the number. Thanks for stopping by!

Inkspired Blog hop #46



INKspired Blog Hop #46

Hello and welcome to another round of the INKspired Blog Hop.You may have just hopped here from the lovely Renee Lynch. Every two weeks we have a sketch challenge created by the super talented Teneale Williams so we can share our creations with you.

We have a great lineup this week, so please make sure you hop all the way around by hitting the next button at the bottom of this post. I'm super excited to be able to give you another sneak peek of this beautiful Designer Series Paper from the up coming Occasions Catalogue called "Falling for you" 


This week, we have an awesome sketch. 


I love sketch challenges and I'm really happy with this card .... if I do say so myself.




Recently I have been using lots of pinks (A bit of influence from the beautiful Louise Sharp) but this time I used soft sky card stock to coordinate with the DSP. I love how Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to create, as all the products coordinate so well together. I also wanted to showcase how you can create beautiful cards with little use of ink. I double matted a piece of shimmer white cardstock and used the large flower from the May Flowers Framelits to create this see through effect. 
Super easy to do!

Global Design Project #GDP061




Having just returned from the Stampin' Up! On stage Live Event in Brisbane, I was inspired to get creative and play along to this week's Global Design Project. The new upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Brations catalogues are packed full of great and exciting products, so don't forget to keep a watch out for some sneak- peeks.

This Week GDP has an awesome colour challenge. 


I have used the Jar of Love Stamp set and the coordination Framelits to create my card this week and hope you like it. This is the first chance I have had to play with this little bundle and found it came together really easily. No tricky techniques or fussy cutting - Childs play "really". The only thing I can't seem to do away with is way to many layers.   


It's Colour Challenge week and you could be a Guest Designer for the next Colour! Click on the banner below. I hope you get a chance to play along too!


Thanks for Stopping By
"Happy Stampin"

Inkspired Blog hop #36



INKspired Blog Hop #36

Hello and welcome to another round of the INKspired blog hop. You may already on the blog hop if you arrived from the lovely Renee or this is your first stop. This week we have 5 cards based on the sketch below designed by the super talented Teneale Williams.



This weeks Sketch

I like to use up my scrap pieces of DSP for quick and simply cards and this week's sketch is prefect for doing just that. When I craft I pull all my DSP Scraps in a clear folder that you can buy from your local Post Office or Craft supply store. I only keep a piece of scrap that will fit in my largest Stamin'Up! punch. Trust me, if you keep any smaller pieces than that you will only become frustrated when you find the perfect scrap, but it's to small for the punch! I also trim my paper, so it fits neatly in the stash. I have to say that the easiest way I have found to use up all my scraps & accessories has been to donate them to my local School. They love to get boxes of art supplies for the children to use, especially around special event times such as Christmas and Mother's Day, which is why I try to clean out my Craft room twice a year.




Here is my Card.... I hope you like it.


That's it for now... I hope you enjoyed our BlogHop today. 
If I can help you with any of your stamping needs please don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to help.





it's now onto another talented stamper Maree McIntosh
