October Afternoon's Sasparilla Range and Tiffany the Outlaw.


Dear Bloggers,

I was lucky enough to have this double LO published in the most recent edition of Scrapbooking Memories in the 'Fashion Gallery'.  So here is my gorgeous daughter fashionably dressed at her 18th birthday party.

Making Wedding Stationery

Dear Bloggers,
I have been designing some wedding stationery.  The bride wanted a soft lavender and white colour scheme with butterflies and the Eiffel Tower as important motifs.  The stationery is subtle and very beautiful in real life but I fear it may look a little washed out in these photos. Please single click on one of the photos and they will appear filling the screen with a black background.  This is a much nicer way to view them than clashing with the green and red on the sides of my blog page.

Here is all the stationery I made whilst experimenting and playing around.


I have grouped the items below into sets that I felt related to each other






Kimba my gorgeous cat was a real asset to my photographic session.  NOT...but I love him to death all the same.


Up close and personal to some of the invitations.






Some of the place cards - I experimented with different fonts.






Wishing well cards



Thank you cards

Published In '400 More Ideas for Handmade Cards' by Stampington and Co

Dear Bloggers,
I received a lovely surprise in the mail yesterday when I received the gorgeous Stampington & Co Magazine '400 More Ideas for Handmade Cards'.  One of my cards was in there.  I think I submitted this card about 5 years ago so my message to you all is.... never give up.... good things come to those who wait....I think I am rambling.  Have a look for yourself :)




Very simple but hopefully you like it.

Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamps by Julie Nutting

Dear Bloggers,
The 'inner child', 'little girl' or just plain 'craft-a-holic' in me just LOVES Julie Nuttings Doll Stamps. Below are three tags that I made but watch this space as there are so many more to come as my obsession has only just begun.  Apparently Julie is releasing more treasures at the next CHA so I can hardly wait.  Hopefully Prima will not run out of stock again as the wait is killing me.

I tried to do a Mixed Media approach with the little girls below but ran into a few difficulties as they are so delicate and fine.  Here they are all the same.
