There’s something about the humble house when it comes to Christmas, I don’t know why but I’m drawn to them. When I saw these sweet creations by Silke Trapani I just knew I had to make my own versions of them. There is a tutorial you can download from Silke’s website, it’s in German but I was able to follow it easily.
Welcome to this blog hop with talented demonstrators from around the world… Today I am sharing an Easter card and Egg Basket made with Fable Friends and Beauty Abounds stamp sets. Be sure to take the time to hop around and enjoy all the inspiration and ideas from everyone. Fable Friends Easter Card and Egg Basket I loved this stamp set from the start but I hadn’t yet used it. Then I found a card posted by a demonstrator in Germany and I knew I wanted to case her bunny and her beautiful colour combination. I just love how Nicole Kuenzig watercoloured the bunny like it’s straight from a Beatrix Potter storybook.…
Welcome back. I created this card for the keen stampers who come to class twice each month. I do a second set of projects for them and this was one of them in November. I started with an idea from Tammy Beard, her card had the gift holder and was a lovely simple design that I wanted to use however hers was a birthday card. I then found a card by Rochelle Blok that used the Merry Christmas To All stamp set and Merry Christmas Thinlits. So I cased them both to come up with this Merry Christmas card with gift voucher holder.
Team Gifts at OnStage I had just enough of these embroidery hoops to create team gifts at OnStage, a demonstrator event held in Auckland over the weekend. I didn’t have many left because we had made them in a class during October. I was so pleased with how pretty they look and I just love the embroidery hoops which are still trending they make lovely gifts.
Petal Promenade Keepsake Album The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is pretty stunning! Beautiful floral images along with the gorgeous marbled back side make this paper irresistible. Fresh flowers were used to create this paper collection. See the process of creating the images of the blooms for the paper here. My project today is CASEd from Kim McGillis she posted this album for a blog hop in September, see her post here. A friend of mine recently had a baby girl and I was trying to decide what to make for her when I saw Kim’s post. I thought her design would be perfect.
Saturday’s Memory Box Class It was a fun day with everyone turning a pizza box into a Memory Box with a pull out accordion folded section for notes, words of encouragement, photos etc. The accordion part sits inside the pizza box and we decorated the box and pages using the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP). These gorgeous little Memory Boxes can be used as a decor item as well as a cute way to preserve cherished memories and special occasions like weddings or new baby arrivals, even engagements.
