Mothers Day Cards

Our Mum is the BEST! I love that she lives around the corner from us and I love that I can send her a message saying ‘come up for dinner’ and she can come ’cause she not far away. She is there whenever we need her, she always makes time for us, makes a great coffee and will always help to mend clothes (but she won’t sew in new zippers!).  I love that she has recently updated to an iPhone 5 AND then she googled where she used to live in Amsterdam …that is SO cool. Not only is she there for my sisters, brother and myself she is there for all the grandkids and has unconditional love for them all. As we always say the best place in the world is at Oma’s house!

To celebrate mums I’ve created two cards which we will be making
at my April Card Buffets.

Mothers Day Card 1

I love tags, thanks to my Opa and Dad, and I’ll tell you all about that another day. These tags I cut on my Cricut machine using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. Cricut machines are so much fun for crafting. They cut the best shapes, as these tags, the rose, which I rolled with a quilling tool and is held together with Liquid Glass and the leaves are all cut with my Cricut Explore Air machine and Close To My Heart cartridges. These are available now in Australia by hosting a party with me and with sales of over $400 you are eligible to purchase your own Cricut Machine with a bonus Flower Market digital cartridge. Email me at
if your interested in getting your own Cricut Explore Air machine.

Both these cards are made with the Hello Lovely Collection which is about to be retired at the end of this month.

Mothers Day Card 2My ‘Bunch Of Flower’ card uses the Corner Rounder and the main design was cut with the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. It’s tied together with the Fern Ribbon from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack. Close To My Heart has a fabulous range of ribbons to match perfectly with the gorgeous papers in their collection and you can see them all at
look under Shop and Embellishments.

Don’t forget, the products in this Seasonal Expression will be retiring
at the end of this month.

Hope you make the time to create something beautiful for your mum this May.

Happy crafting.

Happy Easter

It’s been a wonderful Easter with an abundance of loved family time and being together at this blessed time of the year.

My Easter page is just right for recording all those special memories.


I used this gorgeous sheet from the Dreamin’ Big Paper Pack as my background with White Daisy and Pixie Cardstock on my page and I snuck the border from the Hello Lovely Paper Pack. The cute chicks (in Canary and Goldrush Cardstock) and Happy Easter title (in White Daisy Cardstock) were cut using the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge. I hand cut my banner embellishment in the top right corner and the sun is cut from the Cricut Artbooking  Cartridge. After such a full weekend with loved ones I’ll definitely have to make a couple extra pages for all the fun photos taken!

I hope you enjoyed a blessed Easter with family and friends.

Easter ‘Bunny’ Tags

Easter Tags are fun to make to add to special gifts – gifts to share with loved ones at this blessed time of the year.


On my Colonial White Tags I stamped this cute bunny in Pixie ink and the Easter sentiment in Sweet Leaf ink.

Very quick and easy!


I popped Easter treats into clear cellophane bags and added my bunny tags with fun, bright ribbon.

Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.

More Flocking Together!

I have a confession to make …I’m terrified of birds and feathers. So, when I received my ‘Flock Together’ April stamp of the month set I thought I’d just pop it aside – I won’t create with it (sounds pretty simple, right) but, when you have a NEW stamp set sitting right next to you with pretty papers and inks I was like ‘I’ll just stamp up some of the images to see how they look’! Cause I love creating and playing I pushed my phobia aside and totally enjoyed stamping this up
(…although I still haven’t stamped the big bird up yet)!

So you can understand my joy in my last post, when I shared my Sugar Rush card.
Here are a few more projects I ‘enjoyed’ making…

Flock Card 1

Together really is the best place to be. This card could be one you send to a dear friend to say your thinking of her or you can’t wait till you meet again. You could even use it for an Anniversary, not to girlie or blokey!

Flock Page layout

My page layout is one you can use for a group of friends you love to hang out with.

Flock Card 2

With the page and cards I used the Some Kinda Wonderful Collection, Pacifica Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Raspberry Cardstock, Black Archival Ink, Black and White Dots, Enamel & Glitter Duos Blue Dots, White Daisy Value Pack Cards & Envelopes and the Blue Twine came from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack. I used the Cricut ‘Flower Market’ Collection to cut the Raspberry Daisy’s and Spotted Wreath. And of course the Flock Together SOTM and Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking Stamp set.

All these products are available to order in my online shop

Happy Some Kinda Wonderful day to you!
