Sami is very proud of his lego creations! I am a very happy Mum watching him be creative, and playing (in a boyish way) with his creations...
I found this cute chinese girl card design on Patti's blog. I thought the rice in the sweat treat cups was cute-as well as the punch-art chinese girl-I just had to CASE it...
These Sesame Street Punch-art designs are nothing new. I don't know who came up with the original idea (apart from Sesame Street themselves) I thought they were cute, so I CASED them from splitcoast stampers, and kept it pretty simple
Recently I as I have been out and about in Canberra, I have seen various objects that have inpired me in my card-making. Most of the time it is forgotten by the time I get around to card-making. Not anymore! I have kept a little pad handy to jot down my inspiration so that I can try using my inspiration in a card layout. A girl can't help when creative inspiration strikes...
Here are a few little projects from the last little while...as well as some photos of the kids (For Aunty Helen, and the Grandies/uncles and aunts-to keep them off my back :) )
Explosion boxes-I'm sure you can see why they are called that. Very Cute-and easy to make...
This one's for Helen-who complains that I don't put enough pictures of the kids on my blog! I can almost hear her saying-"VERY generous, Evonne-only ONE picture!" You'll have to be patient with me, Helen, I promise I will upload some more pictures soon! I thought this picture captures that very sneaky look of Sami's-perhaps I passed that on to him...
Just a quick little gift for a friend of mine who's just had a new baby (a very cute one, too)-a mid-night snack jar for Mum for when you get the midnight munchies whilst feeding bub in the wee hours of the morning. For keeping next to Mum's bed-but out of reach of siblings and husbands :)
My first go at a side-step card...
I have really been enjoying trying out new and exciting ways of making cards. Not new really-just new to ME... I really love finding a cute box or card that is super easy to make!!
I also found the instructions for this little surprise box on splitcoast stampers!! It would seem that I have been over there a lot (which I have been)... It is pretty simple to make, and is really very cute-you are only limited by your imagination as to what you could put in there!
I found this cute tractor punch-art design on splitcoast stampers-I just thought I'd add some mini fruit tingle lollies in the centres of the wheel-as well as being yummy, they help the card stand up (at least until they get eaten)
This year I was spoilt with a bunch of chocolate roses-yum! and Beautiful-thanks Ken!
I first saw this little nametag for a table setting on Martha Stewart's blog. My sister,Sharon, and I made up a bunch of them for the Christmas table this past year. Pretty, cute, and effective-they made a pretty swish and easy-to-make name tag
Lots of my friends/family have had new additions to their family recently. I thought these covered mini mentos lollies would look cute made into little people-so I have made each member of the family (including the bew baby) and made a personalised little box to go with them!
We first made this card at a Stamping Jamboree, in which the very talented Trina Kellam demonstrated the scratch-n-sniff technique...I pulled this stamp set out again, and copied her design, but instead used the faux frosting technique-and 'twas happy with the results!!
I made this little fold-out album recently (I have to hunt around for some photos to put in it)-I first saw the instructions on splitcoast stampers-and thought I would give it a go...I was happy with the result and will definitely try this one again!
I love this cute little "Happy Moments" set (which is one of this year's Sale-A-Bration sets-which you can get free with orders of $100)...I thought it really suited the stained glass technique, so I set about using a rather simple design-but I think the results are effective!
This is a rather cute punch-art idea for Easter. I didn't really have any Easter themed stamps-but I still managed to put my punches to good use.
Valentines Day card I scrubbed up today using the sweet treat cups from Stampin' Up! (Hopefully Ken isn't reading my blog-'cause he'll know what he's getting) You can tell I am just trying to find all the possible uses for these cute little goody cups. I'm not finished yet! I just have to get thinkin' ....
The wonderful and very talented Katie made this lovely card for a swap (of which I have already copied and made a stash)-I also was trying to figure out how to put the lollies in the treat cups without having to destroy the card to eat them!! I have been thinkin' and playing-and I think I have mastered the technique! You'll have to pick my brains if you want to know what I did!!
I adapted Katies design using different colours-a cute little card for my new little nephew born Yesterday!!
I live In the land of Aus with my Husband, Ken, and my two gorgeous kid-lets. To "Vege" out I love creating just about anything-from pretty cupcakes and treats to card-making, and gardening.In my past life I was a Florist-but now I enjoy staying home to look after my family. And just because I love Stampin' Up! I am also an independant Stampin' Up! demonstrator because it gives me a creative outlet where I can share my ideas with others.
