More News on Classes

Make & Take - Try & See

We had great day at the market at East Lindfield.  We really enjoyed chatting to everyone who stopped by our tiny table and we also had lots of fun with all the children who stopped buy to stamp and image or two.  What is it with kids and stamping? Everyone should try stamping, especially if it has been a long time since you tried.  The products are so different and virtually fool proof.. although I am sure many Mums would not agree when it comes to inky fingers.  Lucky I had plenty of baby wipes on hand for wipe ups!

I am backing up again next Saturday May 23rd at the Autumn Festival and Spit Roast at Gordon Uniting Church from 4.30pm - 8.30pm. Sounds like a fun afternoon/evening .  Visit their website here to make a booking for the Spit Roast.

Just Sayin SS1505 : CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftroom then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you my card featuring three of the 14 stamps in the
May - Stamp Of The Month set available exclusively throughout May for $27 or for just $5
when you spend $75.

I love the clean and crisp quality of the graphics in this set and decided to make a clean and simple card. The papers from  Basics Combo Cardstock Desert Sand and coordinating Hounds-tooth pattern from the Basics Paper Fundamentals are particularly suited for a masculine card but let's face it, the sky is the limit when it comes to choosing colours to suit your theme.

Using a Colonial White A2 Card Base, I scored five lines in the middle of the Desert Sand base mat (before adhereing), stamped with Black Ink on Desert Sand Cardstock and Lagoon Ink on Colonial White Cardstock.  The Desert Sand & Black Hounds-tooth square was mounted on a Black mat and attached to the card base with 3D foam squares.  I added a thin strip of Black behind  the "Anything's Possible" Banner to make it pop and I couldn't resist adding three Lagoon sequins.

Just Sayin SOTM is only available until May 31st, 2015 from your CTMH consultant.
