Work Area

I know I promised to post photos of my new work area a while ago but it has been a bit messy!! I have finally tidied up (a little bit) so thought while it is in this state I will post them now. It is a pretty small area but it is so nice to have everything organised and have my own space to go into and do some work. The boys have started to come in and want to work with me so I have set a desk for them as well. I just need to install an air conditioner for summer as it gets a bit hot!!

The boys have gone camping this weekend. Woohoo!!!! So I have an entire weekend to craft. I am extremely excited and will hopefully have a heap of items to post.

Faux Tearing Card

I know, I know, 2 posts in 2 days!!!!! There must be something wrong with me!!!!! Don't worry I don't know if I will stay whis focused for long! LOL!!

I had another great workshop today. We had so much fun. I don't know how anyone could say this is work!!

We made the above card using the faux tearing technique. This is made by ripping a scrap piece of paper and then brayering over cardstock to make it look like you have used a second layer of card. The stamp sets used are Sanded, Priceless and It's your Birthday.

I used Whisper White, Brocade Blue and Pretty in Pink inks and Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink card.

Hope everyone has had a fun filled weekend and I will hopefully post more creations soon

Happiness Card

I did a workshop today with some lovely ladies and had so much fun. We made the above card using the Happiness background stamp and it was coloured with Stampin' Pastels. The card stock used is Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Whisper White. We added dimension by applying Crystal Effects on the diamonds and the "Happiness".

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

New Work Space

I am finally in my new workspace and as soon as I can I will post some photos. It is just great having everything in the one spot and to have a larger area to work in.

I have been a bit slack in the card making department but I did make this one recently. I used a Level 1 hostess set (A Little Bit Of Happiness) and coloured it with various SU! markers, I also used Sanded and one of last years hostess sets for the "Thinking of You". Card stock used is Bashful Blue, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and Whisper White.
