The Wee Tea Party Fete

If you haven't been to the tea party fete you're missing a real treat. A cosy event for people who love tea parties, crafting and vintage treasures.

Doily garland will be hanging, pots of tea brewing and delicious cake will be eaten. A perfect place to escape for an hour or so with a sunny-faced fete and catch up with close friends. This time things will be a little bit more festive. I'll have plenty of cards available as well as new some jewellery and gift bags for Christmas.

Come along and get some crafty gifts and enjoy some delicious cake and tea.  See you there! Please invite your friends and family!

 These won’t be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
 This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
 The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.

These holiday-themed stamps are only available through 31 January, 2014, so get them while you can!

Jigsaw Puzzle Swallowtail

I went to a monthly craft group yesterday and one of the projects we made was this lovely swallowtail sponged card.

It's a really easy technique where you stamp and emboss the image and the use framelits to cut out the flower shapes, sponge them different colours and then reassemble the butterfly image on dimensionals like a jigsaw puzzle.

It's so effective, I love the pretty colours, the glitter and of course the swallowtail is one of my favourite stamps. The card is 6" square so we made the envelope using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Diagonal Plate, so easy!! To make cards like this please join my classes, every month in Onehunga, next class on Sunday 22nd, email me to reserve your spot today!

Digital WOW!!

I went to the Make a Statement Digital Tour Auckland yesterday with Barbara, Dyan and Sarajane.

It was such a great event, plenty of displays of digital and hybrid projects to provide inspiration and ideas. Then there were 2 main presentations that we followed step by step on our own laptops, these are also contained in the handout to take home so all the information is there to refer back to. In between the presentations there were smaller demonstrations from other demonstrators of other ways to use MDS and other techniques to try. There was so much information it was amazing!!

Myself and Barbara both won a door prize each and there was also an all attendee giveaway of some digital content that will be emailed this week. We all felt we had received great value for money and had learned so many new techniques and gained many new ideas. Top marks Stampin Up!!

So today I created this page to celebrate my Grandparents. I found the top photo when visiting my Aunt and Uncle earlier this year and the bottom one sits on my dresser. It's so easy to pop photos into a template that is already designed and then add your own finishing touches. I'm no expert and this page needs a bit more work but I wanted to share it today.

My page earned a mention on NZSU this week
