Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #66

This month we have been challenged to create a card using a sketch. While at our retreat a few weeks ago, I designed this card using the ‘Thoughtful Journey’ DSP. I chose one of the beautiful designs and placed on Wild Wheat card stock (probably my least favourite in colour from last year- but it […]

This month we have a colour challenge using the colours Boho Blue, Moody Mauve and Mossy Meadow. I have been using Nature’s Sweetness Suite to make projects for our upcoming Retreat with my Upline, Sharon Wilson. I have made a 3D project and a card for this but have created some other cards to show […]

Happy Easter!

Today I sat down and decided to make an Easter card with a difference. I used the bunny from ‘Playing in the Rain’ and cut it out. I then placed it on a blended background of Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green. The sentiment ‘Oh Happy Day!’ is also from this set. Inside I added […]

Our mini catalogue is only around for about another three months!! One of my favourite suites in this catalogue has been the Perennial Lavender Suite.

A layout challenge was our project this month. I had bought the DSP ‘One Horse Open Sleigh’ from the Online Exclusive, but had not used it. When I saw our challenge for this month I immediately thought of this paper and with Christmas coming up, it was a great one to choose! It shows that […]

O Holy Night

Christmas is a special time of year and, when I see the title of this blog, I am reminded of Christmases past when we would sing this carol around the piano at home. When Stampin’ Ups brought out this suite in their mini catalogue, I was immediately drawn to it. I loved the whole suite […]

Seasonal Branches

A few months ago I bought ‘Seasonal Branches’. It has been sitting on the shelf and I have been looking for inspiration to use it. An ex-student of mine and her twin sister are about to start their HSC, so I thought I might pull it out and see what I could do. I used […]

Casing the Mini Catalogue (with a twist!)

I fell in love with the Winter Meadow suite as soon as I saw it in the catalogue and was not disappointed when it arrived. The colours are so beautiful. I loved what they had done with the ‘quilted style’ card on Page 36 of the catalogue, but again wanted to add my own touch […]
