I've been getting extra-organised over the last for days to make sure that I have a sneak peek for next month's classes ready a month in advance so here it is.......

The pictures above are just a glimpse of the projects you can make in my September Quick Cards Class on Sunday 13th September. Book your place today!

Alternatively, if you don't want to wait that long, it's not too late to register for this month's repeat class on Monday 3rd August (see my previous post for a sneak peek of those projects).

I look forward to hearing from you....

Casing the Spring Mini

I couldn't resist re-creating this gorgeous layout that I found in the new Spring Mini Catalogue. Actually, everything you see on this layout except ONE thing is already available in the current Idea Book & Catalogue as I don't have many products from the Spring Mini - Yet...! I've used Baja Breeze and Basic Grey, with Urban Garden DSP, Rub-ons, a designer brad, 1" double stitched ribbon and my Circle Circus stamp set...simple! It's a lovely clean layout so it was super-easy to create. If you would like a Mini Catalogue (to be released on the 1st August) please e-mail me ( or give me a call.... Alternatively, I'll be using stamp sets and other products from the Spring Mini in my August classes, so reserve your place now and come along to try them out for yourself.... I look forward to seeing you!

Mystery Hostess Workshop

I held my first 'Mystery Hostess Workshop' at my place last night, which was fantastic - thanks everyone for coming! We drew the name of the 'Mystery Hostess' at the end of the night and she was able to order a Level 1 Hostess Set and $55 worth of products - congratulations!
Below is one of the projects I demonstrated - a card using the gorgeous Upsy Daisy Set & coloured embossing, along with some sponging onto glossy cardstock.
There's also a sneak peek of one of the new products from the Spring Mini on this card.... The Spring Mini will be released on the 1st August and it's jam packed with beautiful products that aren't available in the current catalogue. All classes include a free copy of the Spring Mini Catalogue. E-mail or call me of you would like a copy.

Cute Upsy Daisy

I just LOVE this Stamp Set - as soon as I saw 'Upsy Daisy' I knew that I had to have it, and at just $39.95 for the set it didn't take too long to save up. We made this card in a recently Quick Cards Class with just ink, cardstock and a little Whisper White Grossgrain Ribbon, so it's super easy to make. I used Whisper White, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum ink & cardstock as well as the ribbon. I inked the whole stamp with Pale Plum then used a sponge dawber to add a little Perferct Plum to some of the petals. I also used Perfect Plum along the bottom of the card and for the greeting, to achieve a 'watermark' type effect. I hope this inspires you to get this set out of your stash - it's great for so many techniques. If you don't have it yet and would like to order it contact me today!
