Whilst I haven’t been able to do much stamping for myself, the ideas have been overflowing as I have been busy pinning card ideas and 3d projects to my Pinterest board here –


Have you ever looked at it? Do you have a Pinterest board of your own? It is such a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration.

It’s my go to place when I need inspiration.

Designer Tee

Hello all and Happy Australia Day!

I don’t have a card to blog today as we have had a rather eventful week! I have had a bad back/shoulder/arm on and off since Christmas which has severely limited my crafting time and has been very frustrating! Then yesterday Miss 14 had a bad fall off her bike and ended up at with 8 stitches in her elbow and knee (as well as lot of grazes, bruises and missing skin!)

So we are resting up and trying to stay cool in this very warm weather before heading out later today.

This is another stamp set that you can earn FREE with a qualifying order until 31st March – Designer Tee


It is designed to compliment the Custom Tee bundle in the Occassions Catalogue but if you watch the video below you will see that even on it’s own it has sooo much potential – I just love the ‘when in doubt: stamp’ image!


Happy Stampin!

Tasty Trucks

Ok so the Tasty Trucks would have to be, hands down, my favourite 2017 sale-a-bration set – it’s just soooo cute!

I have been following Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs for years now as I just love her style of cards. This is one she did on a live facebook class last week. I couldn’t resist having a go myself. Check our her blog it’s full of insporation and awesome tips and tricks.

I love how you can colour the truck to suit your papers and cardstock or do as I did with this card, I simply stamped it straight onto the cardstock then heat embossed it in white. The strip of polka dot paper is a technique called paper piecing which is basically stamping the same image onto patterned paper then cutting it out and attaching it to the image.

All the papers came from the Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack (6″ x 6″). This is a lovely pack of vintage style patterns and lovely colours – think bermuda bay, calypso coral, peekaboo peach and so saffron.

As always, click on the products below to buy.

FREE Card Tin! 

How gorgeous are these gold card tins? And they could be yours for FREE during sale-a-bration. The tin comes with card dividers so you can store your handmade cards.

But I had some birthday gifts to wrap and thought this would be perfect! 

I saw this decorated tin on a fellow demonstrator’s blog – Renee Kohnke  Water City Stamping and just had to try if myself! It was super easy and really lifted the tin to a new level. And best of all the birthday girl loved it too!

While I continue to play with all my new goodies I am seeing so many stunning samples with this stamp set – looks like I need to place another order and STAT!!

Watch the video HERE to see it in action. I love the way you can use the framelits to create both negative and positive images or both on the same card.
