Kaszazz Birthday Invitations

On my desk this week, are lots of things!!! Still going strong with makes for the Salt Water Craft Fair, I'm slowly getting a heap of birthday party Invitations made. The great thing about these invites from Kaszazz, is they came in kit form. (I say came, as the kits are no longer available, but you will be happy to know, all of the images are available as stamps, so there are endless possibilities for making loads of invitations.) I love the giant tags, they have so many wonderful uses!
I've made up 2 x sets of mermaids, and 1x set of pirates and I have another one to go. I find working at things like this is best done a bit here and there between other projects to keep me sane.

They look great when they are bagged up ready for display!

A little card make!

I'm always running late with my Birthday cards for niece and nephews. I never ever get them there on time! Don't know why???? They get them eventually and they are always hand-made by me. So I had to whip one up over the weekend for another nephew, and it was nice and quick, using a chevron stamp, (one of my favourites), some ink and washi tape. I'm lovin' my little Glitz Design stamp rollers this week, so used the chevron one on some plain washi to make it my own! Finished it off with some Ranger Enamel dots, which are a stash go to for my projects right now!!!! TFL.

Jot Magazine Mood Board Oct/Nov 2014

The colours in this month's mood board over at JOT are so lovely. A real pastel pallete, one that made me instantly want to create a page. The photo of me as a little tacker has been sitting on my desk for awhile now and I'm so happy to have finally scrapped it! Here is the gorgeous mood board.

I've used loads of Heidi Swapp papers & goodies, Stampin Up papers & Kaszazz' new Woodgrain papers, Some Elle's Studio goodies, A Greatest View flair, sequins, doilies, Smooch Spritz & one of Heidi's cute little stencils. Amy Tangerine embellishments and Thickers and Glitz Design roller stamp with plain washi tape from Kaszazz. lastly, I've journalled with a Distress marker, I love how there is always a colour to match your layout and journalling!

Well, I have been busy making up sets of tags for Christmas. There is a great little market here in Darwin in November, called the SALTWATER CRAFT FAIR. It's run by the Tactile Arts Group, and this will be my first year running a stall.
Here's a peek at some of my finished tags!

Just love having my Die Cut and Embossing machine at arm's length again!!! Have Embossed the Background shield with Stars and Dots embossing folders and stamped images and sentiments before applying a lovely layer of  Ice Stickles and Distress Stickles. I have loads of ribbon to use in Christmas colours, so am enjoying using my existing stash for these!!!!

D-Lish Scraps inspiration Board Challenge

So this week I thought I would play along with D-Lish Scraps and their Mood Board challenge. I just loved the bright colours and was instantly inspired by the gorgeous collection of images in this one!

And here's my layout using lots of Heidi Swapp goodies...

Featuring her 'Favourite Things ' papers and ephemera. I've used some stamps, Heidi's cute little arrows and a fun Typo stamp I picked up in Singapore recently! I had this foam circle stencil in my stash which was packaging from something???? Knew it would come in handy one day...I sprayed some lovely Dylusions and Colour Shine into it, then stamped with the left overs. Very happy with the way it turned out!

I can't believe....

I have lost all of my photos from Blogger. Frustrated, is not the right word. I have looked into it in the forums, and it appears, I must have accidentally deleted my google+ account, which means all my photos were deleted from my blog. Not happy. I have been plugging away at this little blog for years, thank goodness all my journal entries are here, but photos...vanished! Ok, to take the positive from this, I still have all those photos somewhere on my hard drive and backed up thankfully. 2nd positive...I guess it's an opportunity to revamp my blog and start with a fresh new look.. So I need some scrap therapy and then will see you all soon!!!!
For now, here is a pic of the cards I made for our recent Kaszazz Team Training Day. I won 2nd prize on the day and have submitted them to the potential projects page for Consultants. I had the idea of doing a stained glass look on transparency with Alcohol Markers. I'm really pleased with the results!!! TFL !!!
