Lesson 35 Nature Walk Cards

These cards were made with the Nature Walk stamp set and the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper(Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue P 14 and 15). I was inspired by cards made by Wendy Bell and Ilina Crouse.

I'll add more samples tomorrow.

Scrapbooking, Cards and Construction

Sorry I have not been blogging much lately but I've been busy preparing for Lesson 35. (June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9,12)
I thought that I'd add the sneak peeks over the next few days and get you all excited.
The scrapbooking element is an envelope journal. I saw Dawn make one on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xafbBQ3kdh4 and as usual I was inspired. I changed the dimensions to fit our envelopes and voila!

The cost for the album will be $20. There will be the option of using a Simply Scrappin' Kit which will make it a little more expensive. You might have some of your own that were left over from other projects we have done so have a look.


After 3 years of ATC designing, our group (Mum, Judy W, Bev, Andrea, Judy H, Wendy, Eleanor and myself) have decided to have a break. I have been really enjoying the card challenges so I thought the group would enjoy them also. I have also added a scrapbook challenge. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you the details.

I will post some of the cards tomorrow.

Lesson 34 Chocolate Pockets

Yes, I know this is a strange title for a lesson but the two stamp sets used are Eat Chocolate and Pocket Silhouettes. The Eat Chocolate set is a new one from the Autumn Winter Mini and Pocket Silhouettes is in the Idea Book and Catalogue 2010 - 2011. Some of you already own this one because I used it way back in Lesson 4 (thanks for reminding me Marg).
There are 9 cards to choose from plus a bag of gift cards, and 3 constructed chocolate gifts.
Here is a peek.

Lesson dates are May 17, 18, 24, 25, 26 and 29.

Another Birthday

Tonight we are celebrating Mike's Birthday. I had fun making a notebook, chocolate  box and wine tag. I used the Sentimental Journey set with Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Soft Suede. I hope this set makes it into the next catalogue.

I love making flowers

When I saw the Just Add Ink Challenge http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com/search/label/Challenges I knew exactly which flower I wanted to make. It uses the extra large fancy flower punch. I have seen quite a few of these. Some just use glue, others use brads. I have even used wire and beads. The Autumn Spice Specialty DSP worked really well.
Last Friday our regular stamping group celebrated Mum's Birthday with a high tea at The House of Gabriel in Tumbulgum. You can see that Mum and Margaret were very interested in the chef's explanations.
Thanks again to Margaret, Bev and Andrea for their lovely gifts and cards (handmade naturally).
