Elephants, Cupcakes and Coffee Cups - Free Templates

Over the school holidays I have been busy playing with a couple of digital collections, in particular the One Big SALE-A-BRATION 2013 Digital Disc.  We don't have My Digital Studio in Australia yet so I used another graphic's program.

I did manage to make some templates. They are a combination of computer graphics and free hand drawing! (It's a long drawn out process involving several steps.  Please don't ask me how I did all this as I still have my 'L' plates on and I need some more lessons from my friend, Lynne. I'm still discovering things by trial and error and have a lot of refining to do).

However, I would like to share these fun shaped cards by offering you the templates for FREE for a limited time.  You can read a bit more about it by visiting still addINKtive challenges on Wednesday morning (AEST).  We will be hosting a special SALE-A-BRATION Week for Spot that Stamp Set and for every entry, you will receive a template.

#1 - Elephant Card
April 2013 Update:  This template and accompanying tutorial are now available to purchase for $3.00 (AUD)

# 2 - Cupcake Card

# 3 - Coffee Cup Card

I have used the soon to be released (22nd Jan)  Sycamore Street DSP and matching Ribbon and Button Pack (SALE-A-BRATION items).

All templates will be emailed out at the end of the challenge.

So, make sure you hop on over to still addinktive challenges on Wednesday and celebrate SALE-A-BRATION with us!

Happy SAB time,


Such a clever lady you are Bron!
Well done, these are sooo cute!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
