Calm Christmas Card

Here's a sample card I made for my vClub girls using 2 of the stamps from the new Calm Christmas set - Available as at 29th August from the new Holiday Catalogue.

I made these to send with some of the new 1/8" Silver Ribbon and their own copy of the catalogue.


Recipe:
Stamps: Calm Christmas
Paper:  Whisper White
Inks: 
Midnight Muse
Accessories:
Paper-piercing Tool, Paper-piercing Essentials pack, Stampin’ Pierce Mat, Basic Jewels Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I thought my vClub girls might appreciate a card using one of the new sets and something they could have a play with themselves while they decide what they may like from the new catalogue! 
And aren't things just nicer when they are in your hand!

Not a member of my vClub, remember you can start at any time, it's just a minimum monthly commitment a of $50 order (before postage) at the beginning of each month for only 6 months - of course you can stay longer, entirely up to you.

There's only one you

Here's a nice simple card I made for one of the lovely ladies I help care for.

I got the idea for this card off pinterest, click here to see.


Recipe:
Stamps: Vintage Verses (retired)
Paper:  Whisper White, Red Glimmer, Sycamore Street DSP (retired) 
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Real Red
Accessories
: Big Shot, Dress Up Framelits, Chalk Talk Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip

I thought about the type of card I would make for a bit as it was for turning 94, what a great age!
I've been going to try the addition of the jacket/cardie for a while and now was the perfect time.

MDS - Create your very own Mobile Phone Cover

With the MDS Event happening in Brisbane on Saturday, I decided to have a play and make an item to place on the display board to hopefully inspire others to use MDS and create their own projects.

My Digital Studio is very user friendly and I hope to pick up some more useful tips at the event.

Anyways, here is the Mobile Phone Cover I made.


The right one shows you the printed product before adding the adhesive and cutting out the camera hole.

It only took me around 15 minutes to produce, which including looking at background papers and embellishments to decide what to use. I honestly had no idea what the end cover would look like as I just let what I saw lead me.

Not 100% happy with it, but for my first mobile phone cover with no instructions, I'm more than happy.

I only needed 2 Designer Kits to produce this - you may be surprised with what they were - I will let you know after the event.

If you are attending, I hope to see you there!
