Good Friends are Hard to Find!

Recently I went on a trip to see a very good friend and I drove 4 hrs south from where I live just to see her.

Good friends are definitely hard to find and we don't get to see each other often so it was a real treat to go see her and spend the night away.

So when I made this card I thought of her.


This is the first time I used this stamp set. I just love the font of the stamp and the size makes it perfect for a card front.

I also CASE'd this from the demo magazine Stampin' Success...this is the last card of the series of cards I CASE'd from that mag.

What I particularly love about this card is the Washi elements on either side.
Something a little different and the card I CASE'd had the washi on the top and the bottom of the white layer so I decided to be a bit different.

Keep in mind some of these products will be retiring at the end of May so if you like them, grab them now before they are gone forever!

Until next time

Celebrating my team

Recently, Stampin' Up held their Annual "On Stage" event and we were fortunate in Australia to have two locations: Perth and Sydney.

Some of my girls, The Hello Daysies were able to attend the Sydney event at Luna Park. Unfortunately, I did not attend. I chose to save my money for my Alaskan adventure in July!

To celebrate my team and particularly the girls that attended, I wanted to reward them for attending and also just to say thank you for being part of the team so I made them some small gifts.


Firstly I made them this cute gift bag with the Striped Treat bags from the current Annual Catty.

I used the Daisy Punch for the flowers and stamped Hello on them to replicate the team name Hello Daysies.

Each bag had a personalised handmade clay tag attached with their name on.
These were made by Stampin Up Demo Wendy over at Paper N Clay on the Sunshine Coast.

In each bag was this card:


and a $25 Voucher



so the girls can spend this on new product in June and chose what they would like rather than me choosing it for them.

I believe the girls had a great time, loved their gifts AND the new Annual Catalogue!

I will definitely be attending the next one in November!

Birthday Wishes

I thought it was time to get back to some Birthday cards after checking my card stash and realising I was particularly low on Birthdays.

So I cracked out the Stampin' Success Magazine (again) and CASE'd this simple card


This one took no time at all as all I needed was an Embellishment kit and the coordinating stamp set and that's it!

What I love about the Embellishment Kit is that there are so many elements in it to use. You arent just stuck with one or two things.

The die cut cake made this super easy so all I had to do was dress up the rest of the card to make the cake the focal point.

Plus with the sheet of die cut numbers you get in the kit, you can choose any number combo for the top of the cake, very versatile.

Have a Wonderful Day

I do love to CASE cards! (if you hadn't already picked up on that lol)

Its a great way to put your own personal spin on a card you really like made by someone else. Just a few subtle changes can really make a difference when adding your own flair.

This one didn't quite turn out anything like I had hoped so I had to adapt and make some changes.


This is another CASE from the Quarterly demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success. 

The original was in a different color combo all together. 
It was in whites, with a light wood textured background and with stamped seashells for the dies.

Turned out I didn't have the same papers or the seashells stamp.

So I went for a totally different color combo and stamp set and just kept the vellum piece over- layed on the dsp.

Working with vellum can be tricky because of adhering it down without being able to see the adhesive thru the vellum.

I got away with it on one side of this card however, since I have made the card, the left corners are now starting to curl up.

So really on this card I have just CASE'd the layout and adapted the elements to suit what products I had. This was a good test of my creativity.
