Garden Whimsey

I had a customer ask me about one of our workshops 2H333 Bella Whimsical Tree and Card.

While she liked the page didn't want to do the card. She wanted a double page.
So I sat down last night and re did the page and instead of the flourish sticky bling I used the Friends sticky bling.
I also changed a couple of aspects of the pages.
I have not used the orchid pastel ink and kept it simple with just the dark brown fluid chalk. I felt the orchid pastel was not a particularly good mix of colours for the page and looked a little out of place.
I opted out for the spots on the back ground of the mats for simple white bazzill with ink distressed mats in the dark brown fluid chalk ink.
I cut out the left over flowers to add to the page and to balance out the 'friends' sticky bling I placed 3 rhinestones on the opposite page.
I will teach this as a class at some stage.
With the sticky bling this is a $30 page.

My Hearts a Flourish

This is a fun and relaxing page to do. It is designed to suit most themes and you can change the stamp to suit yourself.
This a a page with minimal stamping, and the tiniest bit of heat embossing, because I can't help myself.
Lots of punching, which is not stressful and lots of fun.
This is being submitted to Kaszazz. I will be teaching it as a Friday End Of Month Class.
This is a $25 workshop.
Bookings will be essential for this work shop as I will need to order in the supplies.

Mothers Day Milk Carton House

This is the female version of the bird house. A little different as it has velcro dots to make it into a functional box.

Bird House Gift Box

This is my bird house box.
It opens from behind being secured with Velcro dots.
This is the prototype. The finished one will have clear plastic in the window and I will texture the roof using the cuttle bug.
The papers are the discontinued mayhem papers from Kaszazz.
The stamps are from the Love and Cherish set 4128KO $35 exclusive to Kaszazz.
I have used the Tim Holtz distressed inks in Walnut Stain. TIM19534. $9.50. I will be teaching this class on Thursday 18th March at the Craigmore Christian Church. This will normally be a $10 class but as a special deal for the Church group we will be doing it for $6.
We will be using a variety of inks and techniques with this project.
You will need your basic kit (refer to this blog for items) and a large round hole punch if you have one. (4856 Circle 27mm $29.95) I will have a couple with me to share.
Please email me if you have any questions or if you would like to book in.
