Bliss Couture - DIY Card Kit

Thank you to those that bought out my first DIY Card kits.  They went super fast (might look into making up some more), but the other day I had some fun designing some more kits to upload.  So here they are, Bliss Couture.

This kit features Papertrey Ink "Signature Series - Dress Form" stamps and diecuts, Tim Holtz "Haberdashery" stamps and Prima paper.  The kit includes everything you need to create these cards, all you need to have on hand is brown inks and a sponging tool to give them the "vintage" feel and adhesive.  So if you would like to purchase a kit to create these cards then you can find them HERE.

DIY Card Kits Now at Etsy!

* Edited to add:  All sold out.  More kits coming soon.

I have now added DIY Card kits to Etsy for those people who cannot make it to a class because of distance or circumstance.  So now you can purchase a kit with full instructions, all images stamped and paper cut to go.  It makes it so easy to whip up some cards when you need one for a special occasion.  It also means you don't have the expensive outlay of stamp sets, cause the stamping is already done for you.  However, if you decide you NEED the stamp set after playing with my card kits then the instructions are FULL and you can be recreating these cards time and time again.

The first card kit up for grabs is the Shabby Chic Card set featuring a set of three cards using Tim Holtz "Papillon" stamps, Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" papers, twine and a Tattered Florals flower.
So if you would like one, then head HERE and grab your own DIY Card kit.  I will be adding more sets (including Christmas designs) over the next couple of days so keep your eyes on the store to make sure you don't miss out.

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Time is Coming!!

Ho Ho Ho!!  Yep, Christmas is only a couple of months away and it is time to get started on your Christmas cards.  Here are the cards that I will be teaching at Catchy Crafts on Monday 26th September @ 10.30am.

Festive Floral Christmas Cards

In this class we will create three lovely cards for the festive season by learning how to make three different flowers.  You will have extra in your kit to make more of these flowers when we are done.  And they are designs that can be repeated over and over, even for other occasions.

A friend pointed me in the direction of this today.

I like it! So I just wanted to share.

Happy 50th Debbie!

Last Saturday night was my good friend, Debbie's 50th birthday celebration.  We have spent the last 6 months working out details and having so much fun planning the night.  My friend is over-the-top fun and her party was just like her!  She chose a pink theme and she had a slushie machine with cocktails, a photo booth and a DJ.  My favourite part of all was the lolly bar though!  I have always wanted to put one of these together in pink and having boys I can't do that for birthdays.  So Debbie and I had so much fun with this.  She found so many fun pink lollies and purchased some beautiful jars and this is how it looked:
How cute is that banner made by Miss G?

Gorgeous pink lollies

And everyone loved it and made sure they took home cute pink & white striped lolly bags for their kids.

We found a cute photo online of a gorgeous ruffle cake, so Debbie went to her favourite cake shop at East Gosford and they did an awesome job of replicating it.
Just look at these ruffles - mmmmmmmmmm, yummmy!
Get your lips off that Megan!

And here are my two wonderful friends

Happy Birthday Miss Debbie!!!  Love ya girlie!
