Hoppity do dah

Hi and Welcome to our bloghop for this fortnight.  Weeks are whizzing by and I only have one more bloghop before I am hopping off over to Orlando, how exciting.  I am also excited to see what Allison had prepared for us.

Here is our sketch for this week, quite an interesting layout.  Quite honestly I didn’t know what I was going to do.

Then the penny dropped, or something did, I have been helping prepare a day of card making with my up-line and part of it is to make 20 Christmas Cards in the day and go home to finish off another 20.  I decided to check what was in the pool of goodies left to be made up, we have already done 30 of them.

I took one of the Poppy Parade cardbases, a white card front, after cutting out my white circle from this front, I was then able to hide it with a card from the Santa and More pack, that’s the green piece, there were some strips left from other cards, so they become my strips.

In the kits we have put together, there is the beautiful designer papers, and this piece has flocking on it, trimmed and mounted onto my circle.

One of the cards that we had loved it and chopped it, Kylie’s favourite saying. so took the Merry Christmas stripped that had been chopped.

Wella, finished.  Love it, hope you do to.  Our class is running on the 13 October from 10.30 and there is just one spot left.

Here is a look at what we will be doing:

If you would like a kit, I am happy to sell one to you.

Your now off to see my partner in crime……………or upline………  Teneale


Love what you do

Hi and welcome to bloghop 85 of the inspired artists lead by my up-line the talented Teneale who had made the sketch for us.

If your come from Alison, I wonder what she has made for us.

No automatic alt text available.This will be a very quick post, I have just got home from a Buy a Bale fundraiser for the farmers.  What a great event it was, they raised of $50,000 with a guitar of Keith Urban being auctioned for $6.000.  this leads me into Love what you do, the name I choose for my post, just as all the artists that gave their time to raise money, they were actually doing what they love………………..different, but same same, I am doing what I love.

I used the sentiment from the Still Night stamp in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue and papers from the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Papers.  I love the Merry Merlot color and so that was the reason for using the papers.  The embossing folder is the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The inside has the verse from the Still Night.

So you can see I used what I love, a Still Night.

Your now off to see what Teneale has made for you.

Hi friends and welcome, if you have just started at my blog, or maybe you have come from Cathy and I wonder what she has made for us today.  I am sure your going to get lots of inspirations along the way from all the great demonstrators who are showcasing the new catalogue.

I’m excited to be showcasing one of my favorite stamp sets from the new Occasions Catalogue, its the Beautiful Baubles. there are just so much you can do with them.

I used the Stamparatus to line up two sets of the baubles, they colored the baubles with the tones of blue  and grey.  I colored another set of the baubles and die cut them out and using glue dots stuck them on.

I used the Swirls and Curls Textured embossing folder on the Night of navy strip and Subtle from the main catalogue on the Bermuda Bay card front.  I trimmed the white Baubles onto a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock and trimmed to a fine border, i used silver embossing for the greeting, Deck the Halls after I had dry embossed it.


The inside was greeting was embossed in silver to match the silver glitter strip on the night of navy.  To tie in the grey Blends, I used the Smokey Slate as my cardbase.

Now your off to see what Libby has made for you.
