A lucky gift for one attendee......

My busy working summer is now officially over for another year - so I get to start classes once again for Stampin' Up!  Below are a few gift boxes I have made up.  Why?  Each class for the next four classes anyway I will give away one of these boxes with some yummy Stampin' Up! product in it.  You will have to attend my classes though to be in for a chance to win one lol





Looking forward to catching up with my ladies and hopefully some new ones will join us!

School mothers day stall

Loving school holidays - yay!  Anyway during these holidays each year is when I organise Harry's schools mothers day stall fundraising items.  The limit is always $2 per item - but it is proving difficult to find items around that price anymore lol.  ANyway you have to supply the same amount of gifts as your child will buy, and there is always a shortage so I try and donate a few extra items so that it helps out a little.  They all have to be wrapped in cello so that the kids can see what they are buying so it leaves little in the way of dressing them up which I like to do.
I went over to SUO challenges this week and the challenge this week was featuring flowers.  Now I don't do flowers really well but thought that it would be a good opportunity to use them on something for the mothers day stall.  So here are my tags I have added to all the gifts.




I thought I would leave off mothers day this year, kids tend to give them to grandmothers, aunts, carers now along with mums so this way the sentiment is for all!

The Open Sea

Popping in to share a male card with you today that I created using the sketch over at Just Add Ink this week - Gasp I know two challenges in two weeks after months and months and months of nothing lol.  Well I guess thats how it goes lol. With work slowing down as it gets colder and being on school holidays I guess the extra time has been put to good use.

I have used the fabulous stamp set called The Open Sea, teamed up with soho subway DSP and some fussy cutting and its done!

A pocket and a dove

I recently had an order for 8 cards to be created with a dove carrying a branch on the front of the card, a pocket on the left hand side inside the card, and the four words asked for printed on the inside of the right hand side.  Here is the end result:

Marker Storage

I was browsing You tube tonight and stumbled upon a very talented UK Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Pootles Papercraft has designed and created a fabulous papercraft project that houses all those Stampin' up! markers that we have. Check out the video below - its very easy and so very effective - I love it.

Sweet treat Sunday...

I was making some Easter Bark and needed a cute but functional box to pop it into for a gift.   - Its an egg shape box with an acetate window - Perfect as I made the easter bark egg shaped to fit inside. The box is an SVG purchase.



I have used gorgeous grunge on the white cardstock and a multitude of pastels including pistachio pudding, blushing bride, pool party, so saffron, hoping it would resemble a speckled egg lol.
The window is clear acetate so it holds contents in.

I am going to add this to the Just add ink challenge site and Stampin Up Only challenge site this week :)
