Box in a Bag

Created this little beauty the other day.  You can find the instructions here.  Or maybe book a workshop in January to learn how to make one first hand?
I have used the Apple Cider paper from the Spring Mini Catalogue.  Isn't it gorgeous?  The Spring Mini finishes at the end of this month, so be sure to grab anything you still have on your wish list..........this may be your last chance.

Punches, punches and more punches for these details.
Bye for now,

Stampin' Up Hodgepodge - Styled Silver

Here are my little Hodgepodge swaps all ready to go to some eager papercrafters.  I love to package anything and everything and these swaps give me the opportunity to show you some of my packaging ideas.  These cute little hot pink bags are from the local packaging place and cost a very small amount for a bundle.  They are fantastic to dress up and fill with nice little goodies - especially at this time of year.
Would you like one of these little packages??  Visit this post further down to get all the details and let me know if you want a share of some 'Styled Silver'.

I will leave you with some cards I have made over the last week:
This one uses the 'Emboss Resist' technique with another new tool I bought to try out - the Brayer (thanks to Ness from Regional training, this idea is cased from her demo).
And this one shows what you can do with a few markers.  See how the flower has colours fading into each other?  All done with markers.  

Thanks for stopping by,

New Star Punch

Yes, I have gone a little bit crazy over the last month and bought myself a whole heap of new goodies.  Must be Christmas or something!!

This is a little tag I have made to embellish a pressie for a good friend of mine.  I have used my new Star Punch which is going to come in very handy at this time of year.  The saying is from one of my very favourite sets from this years catalogue - Short and Sweet.  It is very versatile.
Just wanted to let you know that I am having a Stamping Technique class on Tuesday 11th Nov at 7.30pm.  We will be playing with the SU Brayer, watercolouring and using the fabulous SU markers.  I still have a couple of spots left, so if you want to come on over for a fun night of stamping contact me on 4362 7209 or by email at
We will be using the SU Markers because we are having a fantastic special on this month starting on the 10th November.  For a short time only you can purchase the markers as a single unit......for only $4.95 each!  How good is that?  Now you can buy just a few markers or a whole bunch but from different colour families.  Gotta be loving that!

Thanks for stopping by,

Styled Hodgepodge Swap

Have you seen the Styled Hodgepodge in the Spring Mini Catalogue yet?  

I finally purchased some this week and I have to say................I'm impressed!  It is gorgeous.  I can't wait to create a heap more projects with these but thought I would share this quick card I whipped up today.
Want to get your hands on some of these beauties?  Rather than purchase a whole tin, how would you like to purchase just a share of them?  Certainly makes it more affordable and gives you the opportunity to play with the pieces.  Join in the Styled Hodgepodge Swap and receive 2 pieces of each item plus a bunch of matching brads for only $12.20.
Contact me at and be quick.  I only have 3 shares left.

Bye for now,
