Lotus flowers with Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Succulent Garden Suite, which I was not going to purchase, but…. I succumbed and jumped on the band wagon and bought it last week. My reasons were not only because I have seen so many amazing projects made with this bundle, but a couple of weeks ago, we went to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction with my family to celebrate my mums birthday. It was a stunning garden, so big and so much to see!

Here is a photo of one of the lotus ponds there.

and the lotus flowers were absolutely stunning!

Here are a couple of the many flowers I photographed.

So, after our visit there, I could see the use of the succulent framelits dies using Sweet Sugarplum card to create my own lotus flowers!

Here are a couple of the projects we made during my craft class on Saturday. The ladies loved creating them too!

This gift box uses the Window Box Thinlits dies with the Succulent framelits dies to create the lotus on top. We also incorporated the glimmer assortment pack, one of the Saleabration items recently added!

We also made a card using the Window Box Thinlits dies, to show my attendees the versatility of using the dies for card making also.

The sentiment on this card is from the Cool Treats stamp set.

If you live in Melbourne and haven’t been to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens, you must visit next year, a I have a feeling it may have closed now for 2017.

What do you think of my class projects?

Perpetual Desk Calendar

Dear Crafters,

With the start of the new year, I thought I would share this idea with you, a Perpetual Desk Calendar!

Perpetual Desk Calendar Birthday Bouquet DSP Scallop Tag Topper punch #stampinup Occasions 2016 @cardsbykate

As you can see, I photographed it last year (lol) on 30th December!

I have used the Birthday Bouquet DSP with my favourite In Colour, Mint Macaron!

The tags are cut using the Scallop Tag Topper punch. I made one for each day of the week.

I also made another 6 with the months, but these ones are double sided!!!

Happy Birthday Ang!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project with you that I made for a friends birthday yesterday, that uses some retired DSP along with Daffodil Delight card stock. My friends favourite colour is Blue, so I had to make it with these colours for her birthday.

#stampinup Gift Bag     #stampinup crazy About You Birthday

This cute bag uses only 1 sheet of DSP and A4 card stock.  How cute is it? It is so sturdy and quite large, so it will easily hold a gift.

Here is the coordinating card that I made to go with it.

#stampinup Gift Bag & Cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project with you that uses some recently retired card stock and DSP, but I love these colours and miss them lots.

Coastal Cabana is the main colour here, with Smoky Slate and Silver Glimmer card, but these projects can be made with anything you may already have at home!

#stampinup Gift Bag

This cute bag uses only 1 sheet of DSP and A4 card stock.  Ho cute is it? Inside you can see some A5 cards and matching C6 envelopes. It is so sturdy and quite large, as it will hold 10-12 cards depending on the amount of embellishments on the cards.

Here are two of the coordinating cards that I made to go inside.

Gift Card Holder with EPB

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you some gift ideas created using the Envelope Punch Board (EPB)!

I am using Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush cardstock as they are my favourite 2013-2015 In Colours and I will be so disappointed when they retire shortly.

Gift Card Holder EPB Mini Post It Note Holder

The base card is Crisp Cantaloupe with a layer of Strawberry Slush then some Designer Series Paper Stack called All Abloom.

Here is the Gift Card Holder in the closed position.

Open it up and you get this!

I love the All Abloom DSP Stack and the little sentiment on the punched labels and the flower with the rhinestone finishes it off!

I also made a Mini Post It Note Holder in the same colours!!!
