Ok Yes I know its been a long long long time since I last posted.

But lots of thing have been happening.

First – Mum is now in remission – and having fun running around doing alsorts of things.

I started back relieving, which I’m enjoying, I didn’t realise how much I had missed working with the kids.

I had three teeth out at the beginning of September, took awhile for me to be eating normally but at least I don’t have them causing problems any more.

I’m working on my tutoring business – Clever Cookies Tutoring – starting a website for it soon.

But lets get to the important stuff – Crafting.

I’ve been having great fun making some gorgeous things with some new products from the 2012-2013 Annual Catalouge and the Holiday Catalogue.   Just love the new glimmer paper and new framelits.  I will post some samples soon.

Mother’s Day: Butterflies and Blue Nose Friends.

Ok I know I said I’ld get back to you tomorrow, and alot of tomorrows have gone by now.

But I have some really cute stuff to show you and to start with is my mums Mother’s day Present and card.

Thank you to Tanya Bell for the great tutorial that I modified to make the box.

I took it from the cute small one to the bigger size to fit mums present inside.

Now if you know my mum you know that she has to have butterflies or things have to be purple.

So inside the box is purple flowers and butterflies.

The cute little snail is called Scoot and is a member of the Blue Nose Friends Collection.

My mum has three of these cute little soft toys and I have quite a few more.

Next is the card I made my mum, it is simple but its got butterflies and purple so had to make it for her.

I cant find the photo I cased this from but when I do I most definitely will put up a name to show my appreciation.  Found out who deserves the thanks for mums care its Heather Summer Thank you for sharing your lovely layout, mum loves it.

Here is mums card that she made for nana. He he more butterflies and more purple.

Cased from SplitCoast Stampers By Prchvs.

Care of Jenny Moors – Tutorials and Awesome Inspiration.

One of my favourite crafters is Jenny Moors.  She is a UK Demonstrator and writes some lovely tutorials.  Visit her blog and get tutorials for herself.  She regularly up dates them and delievery is fast.

First Card is from her Strength and Hope Gift Set.

I love this set and even though it is retired I frequently use it for my projects.








I love using the Subtles Collection, though Rose Red is not a colour I use very often so it was nice to use a new colour.















I used DSP for the bows but you can use ribbon.

























This fancy fold card was fun to make, I have made the same idea but tall, so making the long one was different.

You can make two cards out of an A4 sheet of cardstock so economical.


Next is a card from Jenny’s Flight of the Butterflies Tutorial.

My Mum loves butterflies so I always have to make her one or two cards with them on.  Especially since she has got sick, it makes her smile to see new butterfly projects.















This uses double stamping to do the main butterfly so used our Stamp-a-ma-jig, and punch art for the butterfly embellishment.  Another great way to use up your scraps.


So if you loved these cards make sure you visit Jenny’s blog and get the tutorials and many others for yourself.

Elements of Style: Simple or Detailed.

Who doesn’t love Elements of Style?  Its just an elegent set, its hard for me to not grab it first for most projects.

Here are two different takes on the set.

First cased from Kriss Huels, these simple but lovely cards are a great if you like mono tone colour choices, helps uses up some scraps and is a very versatible multi occasional card.




Next are some very elabrate cards that are just gorgous.  Multi layered cards are always beautiful and adding embossed layers adds to the elegence and appeal.


Cased from Rita Wright, I did add shimmer paint to the butterflies for the mother of pearl effect.

Stamp Camp 2011.


Last Weekend was Awesome.

I had the pleasure of spending 2 days amongest some very creative, caring, sharing and fun ladies in The Creative Inkers Team.

We all decended onto the Keswich Christian Camp and spent time chatting, laughing, creating, and of course STAMPING.

It was great to see people I only know by name to put a face to them, and to catch up with people I havent seen since before Christmas.

Here is my project that I demoed.  I have wanted to do a Tri Shutter Mini Album for ages so I put up my hand to do it at Stamp Camp not realising just what I was getting myself into.   As the ladies who attended know it was very full on, I was very very ambitious but I pulled it off and everyone loved it.

I used the Fox and Friends, Avairy, and Funky Four Stamp Sets, Daffodill Delight, Marina Mist and Elegent Eggplant Cardstock, DSP and Ribbon.

I also need to credit Gretchen Barrow for the instructions for the gorgous butterfly punchart on the front of the Albums.

Tri Shutter Albums Open, showing Inserts.Showing Stamping on Inserts.

Rachael was just as ambitions as me and taught us how to make this gorgous stationery set.  She used two of the Sale-a-bration Sets Happy for You and Sweet Summer – Remember you can earn these stamp sets for free see Hands Up who wants FREE STAMP SETS.

Sweet Summer and Happy for You Sale-a-Bration Sets.

Here is the projects that our lovely team leader Jacque demoed for us.  Using the Presto papers (I have had a pack of these since November wondering what to do with them) and the Easter Blossoms Stamp Set from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.

Presto Papers and Easter Blossoms.

I haven’t finished my Scrapbooking Layout that the talented Delys taught us, I need to get the photos to go on it but I will finish it soon.
Delys used the Presto Papers too so I came away with at least two ways of using those papers.
Last but not least the wonderful Paula showed us how to do a gable box out of one A4 sheet of cardstock with only two little bits of left overs.
She used the Sentimental Journey Stamp Set also in the current Summer Mini Catalogue.
So as you can see we had an absolutely Fabulous Time.
If you are interested in any of the products demoed here email me to put in an order –
