Finished Projects!

Filed under: Card Making,Getting Creative,Off The Page — DanniL @ 10:54 am

After the birth of my niece in December, it took me quite a while to complete her gift, but complete it I did, and this is how it turned out.Jessie Photo Frame

Jessie Box I am really pleased with it, and it was quite a learning curve for me too, with the rounded edges etc.  I also  made this matching photo frame and both were very well received.

When my girlfriend gave birth to her first baby on Saturday night, I immediately went into action, creating this box Nicholas Box 2and card Nicholas Cardin a very short space of time (I had two boxes painted – one in girl colours, the other in boy colours – just wating to be covered!!).  I was really pleased with the way it turned out, and so was my girlfriend and her husband.

It’s made me get the creative bug back, something that I haven’t had in some time!  I’m looking forward to completing another couple of “off the page” projects soon (I have a bookmark to make for our She-essence Creative RAK as well as a matching photo frame for this box) and completing some long overdue LO’s.

Where is your scrapping at present?  Have you created any OTP projects lately? And what inspires you?  We’d love to hear about it :)

Stampin Up

Filed under: Card Making,Getting Creative,Other Stuff,Reviews — Lucie @ 9:02 pm

Well I  had my first ever Stampin Up Workshop on Friday night and as an avid scrapbooker I think I’m hooked. I just can’t believe that they have so many gorgeous stamps and apparently we Aussies only have a small selection of the full range at present.

Wow!!! We made 2 cards, a gift tag and decorated a candle. Oh bummer I just realised that I haven’t yet taken photo’s and my memory card on my camera is full. That can be a job for the weekend and then I’ll show you what I made.

In the new year a group of us are going to do a Stamping Course which will surely get me on my way….I can’t wait, there’s just so much you can do with one little stamp. :)

Oh and by the way if you want to find out more about them just visit Stampin Up and I also highly recommend a visit to Alisa Tilsner’s Site, a very talented Stampin Up Supervisor. Who always has fantastic card designs on her site, I love her recent Christmas ones, they are super cute. :)

Plus she has also just received her very first published project in Australian Papercrafts Number 59 – in fact she actually has 2 projects published in this issue, so make sure you check it out.

Alisa’s site also has all of the relevant information about Stampin Up too, whether you would like to purcahse products, hold a workshop or look at their business model, you’ll find it all on Alisa Tilsners Site

I’ve just received some photo’s from Alisa of her published work so I am editing this post to include them. Great work Alisa!!! :) :)

Happy Stamping :)

Christmas Cards in a flash.

Filed under: Card Making,Getting Creative — Lucie @ 9:08 pm

Well I am really trying to get myself better organised this year with my Christmas Cards. The last couple of years I not only left my card making process far too late but I also attempted ‘grand’ techniques for the cards and consequently I didn’t end up finishing them.

So this year, I have already particpated in a Card Swap with the scrapping gals over at She-essence (so I can’t show you those just yet, until the swap is complete) and I obtained a sheet of christmas stickers in a product swap that are super cute but I probably wouldn’t use them on a page.

My aim was to get as many cards out of the one sheet of stickers that I could. I’m pretty happy with the results, with six cards in total, simple but still very christmasy. What do you think?
