Relish Reading

This is another of my all time favourite Rogue Redhead designs stamp. It's from the Relish reading set. I've used the background stamp and the girl to create this notebook.

These altered notepads make great little stocking fillers.

Ooh La La

Wow!! you did us proud with all your entries in our Diecut and Punch Challenge! So many amazing creations.

This next Craft Room challenge has been chosen by me :-) I've asked the team to go all Francais avec moi. My school French is fairly limited :-) I currently have a French Colleague at work so my School French has been getting a little work out, and that's partly why I chose a French Theme. I think most of us love that effortless elegant chic French look.

We're sponsored by Stamp Addicts who have such a lovely range of stamps.

I've done a scrapbook 12 x 12 page for my French theme piece.

Make sure you pop over and see the rest of the amazing DT Creations, they are all Ooh La La :-)


I'm entering this layout into Simon Says Stamp and Show where they want to see our heart.

O Come Let us Adore Him

I've steadily working on my Christmas craft list, here's one of the Christmas cards I've made this weekend. I've embossed the image with black and a little glitter and then sponged the sky. 
I love the sentiments from this Stampin' Up! Set as it reminds me of singing carols in church when I was at school :-)

Some Like it Hot!

With Christmas only 5 weeks away! EEk!! I've made  a start on my stocking fillers. Here's a notepad I've made using one of the latest sheets from the Bombshell Collage sheets by Gecko Galz.

I covered the scallop circle chipboard with fabric and then added Marilyn and then some prettiness, love how it's turned out. Made it hard to wrap- this one's off to the UK for a family member :-)

Christmas Gift Tags

I don't know about for you, but for me time's speeding by and I needed some Christmas Gift Tags quick. This is what I came up with: 6 tags using 2 sets from Rogue Redhead Designs, Snow Hugs and Candy Kisses.

these were made using Candy Kisses

and these using Snow Hugs.

I'm entering these tags over at Unruly Paper Arts Reader Quest where they want to see Gift Tags :-)

And over at The stamp Man, where the November Challenge is to Emboss it, I've heat embossed all the images, on the tags and 2 of the tags also have a heat embossed background.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Seaside Tag Book

Forgive me for a short post today, I've had a very busy few days and now I'm shattered :-) and it's not even December yet!!! Which is always a busy time for everyone.

It's another challenge at Craft Room Challenge and Mervi is challenging us to get out our Dies and create.

This is a little Tag Book I've created using a Tag Die,  I then also cut a couple more die shapes for the front- there are 3 tags inside.

These little books are actually invites I've made for my staff at work for our Christmas weekend. We're heading into Summer (hopefully) here in NZ hence the summer colours and images.

Please pop over and see the other gorgeous creations form the DT

Mais Oui, J'adore Paris!

Here's a card I made for a friend you loves anything French :-)

I've dry embossed and added a whole heap of glitter, I then tissue taped and dry embossed another piece and again added glitter. I then stamped the Effiel Tower and some french script and a flower, and added a glitter border.

I love how the card's turned out - subtle, classy and elegant- tres Francais :-)

Have a great weekend everyone.

Christmas Tag

Here's a tag I've made using  Rogue Redhead Designs set Snow Hugs. I've coloured with real jewel colours. I created the tag background, using the same technique as Tim Holtz's October tag. I used tissue tape, picket fence and some colour and heaps of shimmer spray. I then popped it through the Big Shot in a snowflake embossing folder. And then added some more vanilla shimmer smooch, which has given the tag a real pearly shimmer :-) I added some glitter paper snowflakes for the final touch.

I hope all my followers and blog friends that live on the East Coast of the States are Safe and sound <3

I'm entering my tag into the Simon says Stamp and Show where they want to see out Pearl creations.
