Embossed Foil...


Hi all...

Who would believe good ol' trusty kitchen foil can be used to make something awesome to use on your cards... its soooo simple but looks amazing! Simply glue a piece of foil onto scrap card, let it dry, run it through an embossing folder, paint (I used Jo Sonya paints) let it dry and use either a solvent or do as I did... grab a cotton ball and a bit of nail polish remover and wipe away the paint from all the raised bits... I took some a bit further to give it a bit more of a rustic feel... It makes you look at all your folders in a different light!!!








Stay tuned for the finished cards...

Anyway.. as it is a public holiday here today (YAYYY!!!), I'm off to my glorious craft room for some candle making, glass painting & bath bomb making... mmm... yes... a hard day ahead!

Till next time,

The Great Card Challenge...


Mornin' all...

Well the challenge was put to me to make cards using 2 pattern & 2 plain pieces of paper or card... all 12 x 12's...  I thought it would be a fun challenge... not embossing anything was a bit of a challenge but it was cool to do some simple basic cards that you could use as they are or add extra bits, emboss, stamp etc. if you want if you are wanting a more elaborate card...

I still had more paper left so in theory you can make more if you had the energy... by this stage I didn't and decided to call it a day...

Anyway... here are the cards from my 'Challenge'...










Well... time for a fresh cuppa and decide what 'crafty' thing I can do today... mmm... in between washing... dreaded house work does get in the way!!!

Till next time,

Polymer Clay Feathers...



Morning all...


I'm on my second cup of coffee and it isn't even 8am yet... I've been up since 5.30 as Chewie, my big boofa of a puppy decided to get up early aaahhhh!!!! What I thought was going to be a sleep in after a VERY late night... err... morning... with friends, turned out to be another 'I'm awake now Mum... play with me!!! NOW!' morning... It's a good think I love my puppy... all 55kgs of him! Who could resist those big brown eyes...


..whilst on my second cup, I decided to show you some pics of my polymer clay feathers... these were so much fun to make... I still haven't decided what to make out of them... I am leaning towards a dream catcher of sorts... not sure yet...

...anyway... back to the feathers...




so, today I will attempt to do some filming for some YouTube videos... mmm.. will see how it goes...

Till next time...

Exploding Handbag...



Hi all...

I just quickly wanted to share what I made for my first craft lesson at Debs Craft Shed... an Exploding Handbag... mmmm... that is very appropriate as you could call my 'real' handbag exploding at times... between my gorgeous 'other half' and my son wanting me to carry the sunnies, keys and wallet... you know how it is...

...anyway, back to the cute little paper version...


... after making one of these little babies, it made me look at pictures of ordinary bags in a different light... you can get a lot of inspiration from them... I will try and get around to posting an example of this... mmm... sooooo much crafting, sooooo little time!!!




... the inside can either be left reasonable plain... room to write or you could fill it up with goodies... mmm... maybe chocolate for Easter... yummm... or you can go to town and bling it up to the max!!!
I stuck to simple... and ate the chocolate so none went in the bag... naughty Deb!!!



... thanks to the lovely 'girls' who made my first lesson special... hopefully the first of many get togethers... and... fingers crossed... You Tube videos are on their way!!! Scary!!! ... but fun :)

Till next time...

Paper Beads...


Hi all..

What a crazy week of weather here in Adelaide!!! Warm, cool, windy and today, rainy, windy and stormy!! My poor little car was pelted with every bit of flying debris known to man! Not happy!!!

Anyway.. enough of the winging... I wanted to quickly share  some paper beads I made using eyelets... soooo much fun to make... I have made a cute bracelet out of these beads and some natural colour twine... I will add the photos to the post when I download it... there are so many tutorials online to get all the hints and instruction... go check them out...




...the possibilities are endless.. once you start making these, you will look at all your papers in a different light!!! Oh so cool...

Well... time for bed... I'm working till late tomorrow so need an early night...
