Next Cardmaking Date

Each person will make 6 cards, 2 of each design plus envelopes.  $20  It will be held at my house in Wahroonga.  I have all my Christmas CDs ready to play!
Monday, 5th November, 7pm  Christmas Card Making.  We will be making 3 different designs using two stamp sets.  I will post pictures soon.  The stamp sets we'll be using are:  Jolly Bingo Bits and Delightful Decorations.  Hope you can make it.

Jar of Hearts

This is another one of the cards we will be making at my 'Prefectly Preserved class on Saturday, 1st Dec at 2pm.  The jar stamp is really versatile as it can be a jar of anything, really- jam, hearts, flowers or even buttons.  I stamped the jar onto a separate piece of Crumbcake cardstock and, to make the string stay where I wanted it to, I cut ridges into the the top of the jar.  I ran the hearts through an embossing folder to give it a bit of texture.  I also used Stampin' Dimensionals to make the jar stand out a bit from the page.

Perfectly Preserved

I had a lot of fun creating this card.  I was inspired by an American Stampin'Up! demonstrator called Jamilla Ivits.  She used woodgrain paper for her background, but I was wondering what it would look like using the woodgrain embossing folder and I was happy with the results.
I used string for the stems of the pears.  It gives it quite a rustic look and would be suitable for a male birthday card.   This is one of three designs we will be making at my card class on Saturday, 1st December at 2pm.  Email me at if you would like to join me.

Tomorrow I will post something else I have made from this set.

My Favourite Birthday Card...

I have just had my birthday and this year my birthday card tally was at an all-time low.  This all changed today, when my friend Janet gave me this great card.  She made it for her son's to sign.

IIf you are having trouble reading this, it says: 'Like sands through the hourglass, so too are the days of your life...'  It really made me laugh.  I was impressed as she had used all her Stampin' Up! stuff to make it.  The only disturbing part of this card is that there appears to be more sand that has passed through than is left!!

I will also be having a 'freestyle' get together on Sunday, 14th October at 2pm.  That means, you pay $10 and recieve 10 pieces of cardstock of your choice.  You can also use my punches, inks and stamps to create what ever takes your fancy.  Feel free to bring along the stamps you already have and let's think of some more uses for them too!
