12x12 Scrapbook Page - Christmas

Star Scrapbook

As usual I modified someone else's design to make this great little book. Let me know if you want me to run a class for this one.

Post It Note Holder

I coloured some flowers from the Pretties Kit to decorate this Post-it-Note holder.

Lunch Pail

This is a very cute little gift bag, made from a sheet of DSP.

Gift Certificate

I couldn't put this gift certificate up on my blog until after Christmas, because a husband of a customer rang me to organise a gift certificate for his wife as a surprise .... she was delighted on Christmas day with her very thoughtful gift. No doubt she will have fun spending it during the Sale-A-Bration promotion, as she will then get an additional FREE exclusive Stamp Set.

So if your Birthday is coming up or maybe for Mothers Day and hubby needs a suggestion, feel free to give him my number to organise a gift certificate.

We made this 6x6 page at Perth Regionals

Off the Page

Cards - Crazy for Cupcakes

Cards - Tree Trimmings

Saw this basic design on the web. I've used Night of Navy, Very Vanilla and Gold.

Cards - Tree Trimmings

This card layout was shown to me by a fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, Tracey. It is very versatile and easy to produce.

Cards - Sweet Treat Cups

Impressive hey !!!!

Not my idea...some other brave demonstrator who tried mixing paper and water.

I love the result, and it is not hard to do. I used Holiday Line Up stamp set and the Sweet Treat Cups from the new Summer Mini.

Cards - Something Sweet

This is my new FAVOURITE stamp set, Something Sweet. It is in the Summer Mini Catalogue. So easy to make. The sweet treat cups are only $6.50 for 12 and the perfect size punch is also available in the mini catalogue.

Cards - Something Sweet

Cards - Scribble This

This card layout is called an Easel Card.

I made this one for my niece's birthday.

Cards - Lovely as a Tree

Cards - Loads of Love

This card design is from my friend Fran. I used Loads of Love stamp set. It was hard to photograph, but hopefully you can see the effect in the photo.

Cards - Like O Meter

This is a really cute stamp. Just the one for $14.95.

You stamp it and then can colour up to the saying you want. This one is all ready for my anniversary in January. Think it will make a great Valentine Day cards.

Holiday Line Up stamp set and coloured in using ink pads as the palette.

Cards - Animal Stories

The next three cards are all using the Animal Stories stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

Saw this design on another Stampin Up Demonstrators site. I loved the effect of just using one colour, graduating in strength. Thank you to the original designer.

Cards - Animal Stories

Animal Stories Stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

cards - Animal Stories

I saw a similar designed card, but it had 3 hills, not the 2 as you see here on the right hand side. So I made up my own card design and layout using the new Animal Stories set from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

Gift Card Holder

Thanks Stampin Up for this great Gift Card Holder pattern. It is very simple and easy to make, and you can make it for any occasion.

Cards - Just Beachy

My hostess for Saturdays workshop asked for a Gel Card, so I came up with this one. I used 1 3/8' punch to make the circles, and the fish from Just Beachy set worked perfectly. The girls were all very pleased with their creations they took home. I hope they keep this set for us in next years catalogue.

Japanese Paper

My Mum gave me a selection of beautiful Japanese paper she bought on a recent holiday to Japan, so it was only fitting that I should design her birthday card using some of it. It co-ordinated beautifuly with Pretty In Pink, Rose Red and So Saffron card stock. She loved it.

Cards - Acetate

Now that we have White Stazon Ink, it is perfect to use on Acetate to create a great christmas card. I used elegant eggplant and lovely lilac markers to give a two colour effect on the stamp, to match the cardstock I chose. I was really pleased with the final result.

Cards - Crazy for Cupcakes

I used the Stampin Up Colour Wheel to co-ordinate these colours together, Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquiose, Blossom Blush, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery.
After colouring in the cupcakes with crayons, I applied Crystal Effects over the cherry and icing to add appeal.

Tri-Shutter Card

My eldest daughter just turned 16, this is the card I made for her.

I used DSP-Tea Party and matched the card stock to it and covered numbers with DSP for the feature on the front. The butterfly is from the "For a friend" set and also stamped the flower from Organic Grace on the inside panels.

Step Card - Friend

Just fininshed this one. The main feature is a beautiful "Friends" verse I found on the internet. Colour scheme is pretty in pink and sage shadow.

Cards - Crazy for Cupcakes

Made this one for a good friend, Fran.
Jenny my upline showed me a card in using this layout, like steps or stairs. I couldn't find any instructions on the web, so I made up my own measurements and used Crazy for Cupcakes and Baroque wheel for my design.
