Stamp Camp

I had an absolutely awesome weekend away with the Perfectly Rustics' Team .  The weather was dismal (the wettest month on record) but the atmosphere inside was warm and inviting.  It was lovely to get to know the members of Sharnee's team.  We had so much fun stamping, scrapping, eating Camp Clayton food and sharing resources and techniques.  I can't wait until next August when we get to do it all over again.

 I set myself a goal to make projects mostly using the gorgeous new In Colours
(More pics to follow in the next lot of blog posts)

 All set up and ready to go!

Thanks, Kim, for organising a fantastic camp.  I loved her 'Prize Tree'.  We all got spoilt rotten with lots of free goodies over the weekend.  I even won the Trivia Quiz and received a Stampin' Trimmer!  Woo hoo!

 I was set up down the end with access to a power point for my laptop and cutter.

 Sharnee Scrapping!

 The oval was completely flooded.

 I've been visiting Camp Clayton for as long as I can remember and have never seen the grounds so wet.

We were super productive over the 2 days and my Wish List  has grown a lot larger!

It was a bit hard to go back to 'reality' on Monday after such a fantastic time away. Thanks girls for a wonderful weekend and I look forward to hanging out with you at Convention in Melbourne next year!


Oh dear Bron it really was a super fantastic time!! I sooo loved it and like you found it hard NOT to do more craft rather than do what i was MEANT to do......
Can't wait for next year, it'll be awesome!
SMiles Sharnee :)

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!
and ...

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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…
