My first CASE, Fifth Ave Floral Tri-fold

I saw this card on Splitcoast AGES ago, and was like I love it, I must make it. SO, I did. Applogises to the talented lady who did the orginal, but I can't remember where on splitcoast I found it... The photo blows too, thats what happens when you take photos with your phone! But hey, my camera should be arriving in my last box of stuff from Wellington soon! Yay! Anyway, I used Urban O DSP, Going Grey c/s, Watercolour paper Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss re-inkers and Stazon Black and dimensionals and crimper... AND this is only like the third time I have watercoloured so I have to say I'm very proud....

If anyone out there know's how to get over the effects of Pleurisy let me know coz its like 7 weeks of feeling blah and I'm soooooooo totally over it!

Right now it's 1117pm and I'm off to bed, Nite nite!

Snow day!

So, I'm not at work today... No buses, and we had a few dramas this morning... And the news says don't go outside... So that means Snow day for me! and does that mean time for crafting? Yes it does!!! Here's the view from my house, and some of the kitten that is not so small anymore... My other cat Max is AWOL, he has never seen snow before so hopefully he is somewhere warm!

Urban Oasis Stationery Comendium

Check this little puppy out! This is my take on the Stationary Compendium, Kim Richards did a kit for us demo's awhile back and I just changed it up a bit... a couple of cm's bigger here and there and instead of a wee calender I made room for C6 Stampin' Up! Envelopes. Now if you're in Dunedin, and you are going "Wow I gota make me one of those!"
Contact me for the details...

This is my new favourite colours scheme, Black Urban Oasis DSP and Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, YUM YUM!

Trendy trees Wallet....

This is for my "stamp set Spotlight" class for the month of June
Come to a class and you get to make this cute little card wallet and some cards to go in it... If you pre-order or purchase "Trendy Trees" I'll give you a discount off the class price.

For more details about the Trendy Tree Spotlight class or any other classes email me on

If my class timetable doesn't suit you, don't worry... I can come to you!

I found the instructions on an american site and had to "re-do" it so it would hold nz size C6 envelopes... anyone who knows me knows I have to change it because what good is a card holder if you can't fit stampin' up size envelopes in it!

These aren't my normal colours but I'm really happy with how it came out!

Recipe: Windsor Knot DSP, Old Olive C/s and ink, So Saffron Cardstock, Sage Shadow Cardstock and I also used my newest favouritest tools, the Eyelit Edge punch and crimper
