Market Day outcome

What a fabulous day! everyone went home with a bargain and some went home with less clutter in their craft room! There were ten ladies selling stuff and heaps of ladies buying!! There were even yummy cakes and slices to keep the stamping/cardmaking stamina up! Thank you everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the day as much as me. I'm totally exhausted now though, talking takes it out of you LOL. Oh by the way I've been talked into doing another Market Day, it won't be until a few months away, so start going through your STUFF now LOL.

Market Day

Saturday 30th August at Stampabit 10-30am.

Come and sell your unwanted products - stamps, papers, ink pads, stickers etc OR grab a bargain!! As they say.... one persons trash is another persons treasure!!! I mention in my previous post that I've had a massive clean out and have heaps for sale and all at the cheapest prices!! I don't want to put any of it back! I have some unmounted plates of stamps for $10, mounted stamps at 50cents, seriously I just don't need these anymore.

I'm charging $5 a table (provided), this goes towards the cancer council. So go through your STUFF today and make some money, it's better than sitting there unloved!!

If you wish to have a table just leave a comment and I'll get back to you. If you wish to grab a bargain then be there or be square.

Cheers and sorry if you live too far away, why not arrange something like this in your area.

Owl serviette card

Hi everyone,

Well as promised here's a card I made using one of the owl serviettes. I'm into owls at the moment, oh and trees. I went to the Stitches and Craft show at Rosehill Sydney yesterday, I was a very naughty girl and spent lots! I think I bought everything that had birds, owls or trees on it.... Oh well till my next obsession.

I'm having a HUGE clean out at the moment, getting rid of a lot of stuff, cardmaking stuff that is. I'll be putting up a post soon in regards to a Market Day that's happening at the shop next Saturday the 30th August, so stay tuned!

I hope you like the card.

Been away Playing

Hi everyone,

Sorry it's been awhile, as some of you know I went to a Scrapbooking retreat last weekend, well it's taken me all week to get over it.
I don't scrapbook, but I did make 12 cards and covered a writing pad, WOW that's great for me. This is one of the cards I made for one of the organisers and the other is an ATC's I made for the swap at the retreat. I had such a fantastic time, I didn't know many of the ladies when I got there but I certainly know a lot now! I haven't laugh so much in ages, they certainly know how to have a good time.

I'll be back soon, I have some yummy products to show you.

Alcohol Ink & Cuttlebug card

Hi, I thought I would share this card with you too. I was playing around with my Ranger alcohol inks the other day and came up with this, hope you like it.

The background is foil tape on chipboard, then embossed through the Cuttlebug machine with the d'vine swirl embossing plate, then StazOn saddle brown and blazing red were swiped over the top. I then used silver foil board and the die-cut and embossing plate from the textile hearts set and applied Ranger alcohol inks: raisin, butterscotch and espresso over the top. The birthday is made using silver foil board and the happy birthday embossing plate, no inks applied. These inks are so much fun to play with.

Thanks for looking


Transparency Serviette Card

I made ten of these transparency serviette cards for RAK (random acts of kindness) and to catch up on some birthdays. Try and find a serviette that has a simple design to cut around and won't be too flimsy. I hope the steps are clear and that you enjoy it.

These steps can also be found in Stamping & Papercraft issue 13/3 by Jacqui Jones, they are gorgeous examples that inspired me to make this card.

Trim around your serviette close to the design, remove the bottom two layers so you only have the top layer with the image on it.

Coat a thick layer of Mod Podge on to a same sized piece of acetate or plastic, layer the serviette on top carefully so you don't get any creases.

Apply another thick coat of Mod Podge over the top in a stippling motion, be careful not to tear the serviette. Put aside to dry, this should take about two hours. Don't try and use your heat gun as this may buckle your acetate/plastic.

When dry the serviette will now look transparent, trim around the image and scalpel out some of the inner sections if needed. Attach to your card using a glue stick, let some of the serviette overhang the edges of your cards to show off the transparency of it.

I hope you enjoyed these steps, if you do make a card using these step, please send me a picture I would love to see what you come up with. Any question or concerns please leave me a comment.

Cheers, Jane

Missing You Card

I made this card for someone who has brighten my days for the last two years, unfortunately I won't be seeing her so often now, so I wanted to make a special card to let her know how much I enjoyed her company and how inspiring she is, I'm not sure if she would check my blog regularly, but in any case when she sees the scalloped edge she'll know it's for her. Thank you for making my days cheerful! I'll certainly miss you, but I'm sure we'll catch up on our craft days and the promised shopping and vegging out days (you know what I mean!)

I'll be making another one of these for another friend who I'll certainly miss as well, such a character! It's going to be sooooo quite!

Thanks for looking.
