Sneak Peak

Just a quick sneak peak post before tomorrows blog hop, I have been fiddling with blogger to work out how to schedule posts, so lets see how it goes.
The card below uses the top note die from our Autumn/ Winter Mini catalogue as well as the 2 step bird punch. We made this card at class last fortnight but I told the girls to keep it under wraps because i may use it as my convention swap with some minor tweaking, but will now have to make up another design, let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking & hope your back for tomorrows Blog Hop

Happy Stamping

Handbags Galore

WOW can you believe it 3 posts in 2 days with another tomorrow for our ESAD bloghop starting at 8am so make sure you come back to check out all the creations made with new goodies from the Autumn Winter Mini.
The card I have for you today is something that most women have way too many of, Handbags!!! (I am Guilty) but at least these will put a smile on your face without breaking the bank.
I have used Parisian breeze DSP (now retired)& teamed it with chocolate chip cardstock.
Punches used include: small oval, large oval, 1 1/4 square, 1 1/4 circle, scallop punch & round tab.
hope you enjoyed today's card & don't forget to drop back in tomorrow for the ESAD Blog Hop.

I have posted below some pictures of cards made using the Sale-a-bration sets.

Very simple design could be used for Male or Female by changing the colours.

This card was designed by my upline Roz Vest

Again a great card that can be used for male female or children just by changing the colours.

I love this card the birthday cake image is so easy to colour & looks great

This card I have cased of Splitcoaststampers with a few changes, again very simple but so effective.

This card uses the bird cage from the Happy Moments set, I have also used En francis' for the background as well as Baroque Motifs.

I love the tag concept on this card using the birthday cake from the Happy Moments set, the idea came from Spliltcoast stampers. I think the ribbon & paper piercing just finishes it off nicely.

This was the first card I made using the birdcage from the Happy Moments set, it's hard to tell from the picture but the birdcage is recessed in the circle frame.

This was a card I made using wide oval punch to make a pot & then putting it through the crimper, I first used this idea on card I submitted in a colour challenge back in January (check out previous posts). I also tried something different for me by wrapping a brad around the ribbon .
If you would like any further information on any of the cards or to make a purchase for Sale-a-bration please contact by Email@
I'd love to here your comments.

This card was made by some of the older girls & I pre stamped the skull for them.

This card was made by some of the younger girls & I pre stamped the butterflies for them.

This card is a case of a card made by Nikki Tidbold that I received at regionals in Sydney & was made by the older girls.
This card was made by the younger girls they used the watercolour pencils to colour then blended it with Blender pen .

This card was made by the boys as well as the Skull card using Pacific Point Colour & the boys also made the Green card from the Just Riding stamp set from an earlier post.
