I have been busy!!

I have been busy this week! Made 3 going away gifts and 10 cards for a charity event. All over 2 nights - phew!!

Now the first one I have to show you uses retired product but can easily be reproduced using whatever you have at home. I have been thinking of running this as a class so let me know if you are interested :)

So, its a chocolate wallet with individually wrapped chocolate sticks covered in matching DSP. I have also done these with ribbon holding them closed but for these ones I used velcro dots.

Stamp Set: Oval All (retired)
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, A Walk in the Park DSP (retired)
Accessories: Baja Breeze Ink, Not Quite Navy Ink, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch

The next one was for a going away present for one of the girls at work. We work in a bank so I figured Post-its would come in handy. I wanted a large block and decided the colourful ones would be nice, so needed colourful paper to match! Luckily I had just bought the Pink Flamingo DSP in the Inventory Clearance Sale!!

And these next few cards are some I made for a charity event being held by my fellow demo Madonna Dunn (

Both of these cards use the same supplies
Stamp Sets: Vintage Labels (SAB Set)
Cardstock: Baka Breeze, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Parisian Breeze DSP (retired)
Accessories: Baja Breeze Ink, Chocolate Chip Ink, Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain ribbon, 1-1/4" square punch,scallop edge punch

The next two use the Rock and Roll technique on the sentiment which is quite subtle so hard to see in the picture.

Stamp Set: On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Haiku DSP
Accessories: Old Olive Ink, Tangerine Tango Ink, Tangerine Tango striped grosgrain ribbon, scallop edge punch, gold brads

The last one is a variation on a swap I received at Perth Regionals. The original was made by Jeanne Orr, I can't find a blog to link for Jeanne but thank her for the inspiration!

Stamp Sets: On Your Birthday, Sprinkles
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, Very Vanilla, Walk in the Park DSP (retired)
Accessories: Baja Breeze Ink, Cameo Coral Ink, Basic Grey Ink, Baja Breeze striped grosgrain ribbon, 1-1/4" square punch, scallop edge punch, slot punch

Ok, thats it for me now BUT I am plannign on giving away some blog candy just to see if anybody is actually reading!! So check back soon to see what I come up with!
