Envelope Punch Board !!!!!

Order yours tomorrow and start creating your own envelopes, boxes, cards, gift cards - the list is endless!



Item # 133774  Price: $ 31.95
  • It creates totally customisable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create! 
  • It's super easy to use; It looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score they'll go crazy (in a good way). 
  • It's small and lightweight;  It's small and light enough that you could use it while watching a football match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere and it's super portable and easy to store.
  • It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes. 
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific--especially for a tool that does so much!
Start ordering from tomorrow 29th October, 2013.

Teacher Appreciation Day 2013

Teacher Appreciation Day 2013

With Laura starting High School next year, this will be the last Teacher's Appreciation Gift I shall be making...mind you, it will also be one of the few if not only gift her Teacher will receive as apparently it's not that cool for Grade 7's to give gifts either....oh well, we must please Mum so Mr S will get his gift in the morning!

I had a play making some boxes with the new Envelope Punch Board - ohhhhhhhh you are going to LOVE this board! I can see it going to the top of your must have list!

3 boxes using 12x12, 10x10 and 9x9 DSP - yes retired, but gorgeous!


This is Mr S's box and fits 6 fun size packs of Chocolate in it - being a Male Teacher I didn't want to get too frilly (lol, so to speak)!


You can buy the Envelope Punch Board starting Tuesday 29th October - only a few sleeps away!      Item # 133774  Price: $ 31.95

Stocking Gift Card Holders

Don't you just love it when you have made a great start on Christmas preparation!

Must say I am doing really well this year! I have made at least half of my cards needed and now have my Gift Card holders sorted as well.......last year I made the Santa Suits which are very cute.

This year I decided to go with the Stocking - and seeing as I bought the die in the retirement sale, I am getting my money's worth out of it now.
I have made some for orders I received once they were seen - they are very cute in pink!
I also made some single ones for gift tags as well.

ATC Vintage Christmas Card

Last Christmas I was involved with an ATC Vintage Christmas swap at Soul Scrappers.
Maximum of 10 in the group - so I made 10 as they had to get the States by a set date.
Only 7 people joined up so I had an extra 3 turn back up with the others.

Rather than waste them as I was (and still am) rather proud of them, I decided to make the spares into Christmas cards.


Wow - I love how they have turned out !!!! 
The hardest part now is to decide who will be getting them in their Christmas Happy Mail.

        Sympathy Card

        Along with masculine cards, Sympathy cards seem to be the ones we don't like to create often.
        Now it's clear why that is, as it's a sad day when you find yourself having to give one, or worse still, receiving one.

        Here's the latest one I have made using Island Indigo as the main colour.



        I quite enjoy making them myself, just never giving them out.
        As an AIN working in an Aged Care Facility, I know how special it is when a family sees a handmade card, and as such, I do regularly make them.
        Just ask my vClub girls, LOL, I think I have had a sympathy card in every months bonus tutorials. Happy to say that next month is all Christmas themed.

        Christmas Ornaments Class

        I thought I would show you the Christmas Ornaments I created for my Class.

        When I was looking around for ideas, there are sooo many to choose.

        I have given them a fresh look by using current products.




        Recipe:
        Paper:  Garden Green, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
        Accessories
        : Big Shot, Lattice Die, Brights Candy Dots, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, 1/8" Sliver Ribbon, Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon, Tombow Multipurpose Glue

        Smile - Altered Notebook

        Smile !!! you see, I can alter other products, not just empty jars.

        Here's one of the little notebooks I covered for some quick gifts to have on hand.





        Must admit, I love the new stretch ruffled ribbon - makes it so easy to get a great looking edge on any project.

        I am finding myself so time poor these days that I've decided not to add the recipe of what I've used.
        If you want to know and can't tell by looking, just add a comment or email me and I'll let you know.
        LOL, if you have your own blog, you will know that at times it takes way longer to do the recipe than to actually make the project!

        SBT50 Monopoly - Chevron Street !

        Ok, so you know I made it to "GO" on the Monopoly board over at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia's Monopoly Challenge.

        My first roll of the dice saw me roll a "2" which has taken me to Chevron Street!
        Now this means I need to have the "Current Trends" of Chevron, Stars and Handmade Embellishments on my layout. ...... of course a cute picture helps too!



        Hard to think this was my "Baby Girl" nearly 10 years ago! This picture sure does bring back a lot of memories of that day.....LOL, she sure got into a bit of strife that morning! lucky she was at her Uncle's and her Dad still in Brisbane.
