I've had several spiiner cards on here before, but Anne felt the photo just didn't do them justice, and they don't! So she's made this little video clip to show you how they work.
You won't be able to keep your kids from playing non-stop with these!
These are so easy to do and such a wow project. What do you think of these?
Anne's samples here are made with Designer Series Paper and Boho Background stamp set.
This is a fantastic little template a lovely lady named Carrie showed to us at last year's Stampin' Up! training convention in Sydney. I have used this quite a bit, and am pleased to hear that many of you have been as well!
One sweet customer, Lisa, told me that she made some of these up and let her daughter do all the embellishing, which is a great idea! What young girls (we're all young, aren't we?) wouldn't enjoy that? I'm thinking about the tween birthday party my eldest wants to have next month . . .
The first sample is one that many of you have made with me, using the Afternoon Tea Designer Series Papers and the Live Your Dreams stamp set (which is on the Bushfire Appeal list).
The second sample uses the Le Jardin papers and the Carte Postale stamp set (both on the retired list) and the third one – you'll have to watch the movie!
The basics of how this goes together is in the movie (mum's tv show, as it's called at my house) because it's rather tricky to explain in print, but easy to explain with visuals. The rest, the embellishing, is up to you! Enjoy!
I fiddled with these last week and came up with a result with which I am very pleased. (Eldest daughter Madeleine "helped" me by telling me when it looked bad). I used this technique on the title of my Sun Fun scrapbook page. And, of course, chipboard is an easy accessory for those tricky masculine projects.
See below for the tutorial of what I did; this is just the basics – the possibilites are endless! See here for the tutorial on how I did the flowers for this page.
I'd love to see how you use your chipboard! Besides embossing, some other ideas are:
1. cover with designer series paper
2. cover with versamark and pastels
3. stamp straight onto the board itself
In fact, I often wondered what the fascination was with all the hedgehog stamps so popular in other brands.
Then one day, while walking to the pool, we found a baby hedgehog on the pathway, orphaned and so tiny. And what mother can leave a baby alone?
In the end, we had her for five days, and then she passed on, despite our best efforts to keep the baby alive. There are a few kind ladies in Auckland who specialize in helping out hedgehogs, and neither of them charge a fee for their services. So I made up a pack of these cards to send as a thank you to the ladies who drove over the try and save the baby. It mean a lot to me and to my girls that people have such kind and generous spirits to help out the small creatures.
This card is quite straightforward, except for the scalloped frame. Take two on the videos for a short visual tutorial! To order your scallop edge punch, email me today!
Do you recognize from where I acquired this tin? This is the tin the Hodge Podge Haredware comes in! So even when you've used up all the goodies, you've still got another project out of the purchase! I've covered the tin using the Bali Breeze papers from the Summer Mini Catalogue and the stamp images are from the Sale-A-Bration set, Yummy. I am looking forward to making some really cool jars and recipe projects with this set! And I think I have a few photos of babies with avacado or some such smeared all over their bodies that would suit this stamps for a nice layout . . . just a few. The
flowers on here were a special effort by me today. All the flowers are from the Pretties Kit – see the video below on how I coloured them up! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Besides that I need to close the dishwasher next time . .
