Buff Point Card Making

Last week I had a workshop with a group of ladies from Buff Point, we had a fabulous morning and this is one of the cards that we made, using Petal Prints, Purely Pomegranate, Blush Blossom and Chocolate Chip.

Last night we had a sizzling time with the heat gun in the Faux Metal class, we were too clever!

We made numerous embellishments with this amazing technique and I will post the cards I make with them later.

After we had finished we had show and tell and I showed the lovely Purely Pomegranete card above. Oooh!!!, I heard so I couldn't resist. The card is so simple yet so impressive.

I made this variation in the new In-color, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou, with the yummy Double stitched grosgrain ribbon that co-ordinates beautifully, in Blue Bayou too! The sentiment is Happy Everything, a great set for balancing your card layout as it uses too different fonts and sizes. I think it finishes things off nicely!

And one of my Class, Adele, made this one in the new Basic Gray and So Saffron!
Very nice! Go Adele!

New Catalogue Launch

Wow! We had a great night last night! These are three of the cards that we made using new stampsets and products from the brand new 2008 - 2009 Idea & Catalogue Book.

We used my favourite set 'Priceless' for the card at the back, Prints designer series patterned paper in Rose Red, and new in color cardstock, River Rock and Purely Pomegranete. We used flowers and Rhinestone Brads from The 'Pretties Kit' - just devine!

The Gift card at the front uses the versatile set, 'Fun and Fast Notes'. I mounted this set with the words separate and I can use whatever sentiment I like each time I use it.

The third set uses a level 1 Hostess Set - 'A Little Bit of Happiness'. For this card we used the new 5/8" wide Grosgrain Ribbon in Regal Rose, it's available in 8 gorgeous colours to match perfectly with your next project.

Scrapbooking Simply

This Scrapbook Layout was one that we made at our 2008 Stampin'Up! Convention, last weekend in Brisbane. It was so much fun! We had lots of classes for business development and also ideas and time for stamping. This page was a beautifully simple layout to complete and as you can see the results are gorgeous. I have added a photo digitally, so that I could upload the page for you now, so the photo isn't quite straight, but you get the idea.

Recipe for this project
Stamp set; Forever in My Heart
Cardstock; Kraft, Textured Soft Sky, More Mustard, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Patterned Paper; Old Olive Designer Series Prints
Inks; More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Real Red,
Accessories; Scallop Punch, buttons, Old Olive wide Grosgrain Ribbon
