Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft is now in COLES!!

Hi everyone,

I'm a tad excited as the cardmaking magazine that I'm very passionate about and that I luckily work as the technical editor on, is on sale in Coles stores this issue 14-8!!! YEAH. I got some poor lady walking past to take a photo of a very excitable me holding the magazine. I think most of the people in the store walked pass, smiled or giggled, one woman said "you must be very proud" she had no idea!!

Anyway back to Stampabit and what's happening in store. I shall post a photo of Jenny's Dimensional Butterfly class soon and we also have my first technique class coming up this Saturday (chalk popping technique), we will have more info on this very soon.

Sorry for the lack of correspondence, and lack of links for the Newsletter and Workshops schedule. I'm trying to get organised for my classes over in New Zealand soon! what an exciting year!!

Cheers for now

Quick card with Faux linen technique

Hi everyone,

Here's a quick card I made for my father-in-law. I did the faux linen technique for the background and then stamped Stamp-It lighthouse stamp over the top, very easy.
Hope you're all having a good day and keeping out of the heat! we're having temperatures of 44 degrees celsius here HOT HOT HOT. Got to love air-conditioning!

T-bag gift box set

Hi everyone,

I actually made six cards and this little number over the weekend Yeah! Pity the weekend is over, I was on a roll.

The decorated t-bag is the make and take for next Saturday the 7th Feb. Don't forget the make and takes are free!! I then proceeded to make a little box for them to sit in, then wrapped cellophane around it, and had the flower dangles hanging out the top. I think these would make a great gifts for friends who like tea!!

The stamp is a Hero Arts flower from the CL 230 Live Simply set.

Hope you like it. I will be posting more cards soon I promise, some I can't share as they're for the magazine, sorry he he.

Thanks for looking
