Crazy Crafters - Team Project Highlights

Image
Hello and Welcome, it is that time of the week again;  Yes that's right it is Friday The Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights.

This week I have made a Masculine Card. Now this card could be for a Man who is not well, recovering from an operation, a Sympathy card even a Birthday card. The choice is totally yours.






How crazy am I? This is the first time I have actually used the Stitched Framelits, they are so great they cut the perfect stitch cut, I am so silly just keeping them stored away and not using them before now.
I know I will endeavour to use these many more times in the future.

I do hope you like my card, Please vote for me by clicking on the following link and then on my card there will be a grey heart in the top right of the image click here and change the heart to RED, That's it? you have voted for me.
 Thank you for voting I really do appreciate this as our team are very talented and voting is for accolades only for ourselves. No Sheep Stations to be won here 😉I…

KYLIE'S INTERNATIONAL PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS - CHANGE IN LIFE

Image
Today I have entered in Kylie's International Project Highlights, to blog along with very talented Stampers from around the world.
They all inspire me so much and I am so very honoured to have my card alongside this incredibly talented lineup.
Yes, our lives change day to day, hour by hour and even moment by moment. I have had so many changes in my life over the last eleven years, due to an undiagnosed illness, disease, condition, it depends on what medical person I see that give me their ideas of what it should be called, without a true diagnose of what I have that has robbed me of the last 11 years in so many ways.
I have had to learn to walk again, stand with balance, and learn to do everyday motions a completely new way to be the best person I can be in a physical form.

We as humans take things, even the tiny things so much for granted. I loved to dance but it is impossible for me to dance again, I am unable to walk backwards, squat, stand on tippy toes, bend down to put sock…

Hey, hey, hey It's Friday.

Welcome to my blog and to the Crazy Crafters Friday Team Project Highlights, where we have our blog post for today linked to Mama Kylie Bertucci's Blog. 7:00pm  the Blog opens for voting.

I love Fridays as I can enter my cards and have it sitting next to my very talented team members that inspire me so.

 I am entering TWO cards tonight, they have the same background, as I used the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP, you will find this in the Annual Catalogue on pages 126 and 127 in the Delightful Daisy Suite.

One card has a sentiment from the Annual Catalogue, 1Million  Sales Achiever Patty Bennetts, Ribbon of Courage page 96.
The other has a sentiment from the Holiday Catalogue, Count my Blessings page 50. plus a beautiful intricate Butterfly using the Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies.

The cards themselves are relatively simple to make, having fun using the Big Shot once again.


Keep scrolling to see both of the cards I am entering tonight, Do you have a f…

Happy Friday - Start of the Weekend

Good Morning, everyone, It's such a beautiful morning here in Dapto, NSW, Australia where I live. We are in the season of Spring, the weather is nice and warm. Not hot as Summer gets, but at least we don't need to wear Jackets and Winter Woolies during the day. Before I started blogging this morning I watched the birds dart in and out of the bear Jacaranda Tree.
This is how my Jacaranda Tree looks at the moment. Bare of Flowers and Foliage but it won't be long until it is November when it will be in full bloom once more.

When a  Jacaranda Tree in Full Bloom, it gives good camouflage for the birds and when it drops it's Blue/Purple flowers it leaves a carpet of colour. These trees make for a beautiful place to sit on a hot sunny day as they give great shade coverage.





Here is an Australian Minor Bird, enjoying the sweet nectar  of the Jacaranda Blooms

Hello Card in Green

Hip, hip Hooray it's Tuesday today.

Hi Everyone, Tuesday morning 3rd October 2017.

A quick to make card, with only one little word to stamp, Tranquil Tide Cardstock layer, Delightful Daisy DSP layer, a white lacy doilies, 6 little shiny Rhinestones, a Tranquil Tide punched shape with the Pretty Label Punch , a Whisper White punched shape with the 3.5 cm Circle Punch and Tranquil tide Ink pad to stamp the sentiment from the Stamp Set Jar of Love (141587) Page 29 Annual Catalogue. Cut to size to make an A6 Card, adhere with either Snail, Fast Fuse, Tear n Tape or Tombow Glue with a few dimensionals to give the sentiment the pop and the front of your card is complete. To give it the finished look insert a layer of Tranquil Tide and Whisper White cardstock and a 1/2" in width strip of the same DSP for it to flow. Done.

Hey Everyone  Happy Monday morning, Wow, 2 October 2017 already. Here is Australia it is our Bank Holiday Long Weekend. I don't know about you but September seemed such a long month, busy but long.  I have so many family members including myself that celebrate our Birthdays I just didn't get all my cards made in time this year and had to post a Happy Birthday greeting on Facebook to wish them a Happy day and to let them know I loved them dearly.
As a card maker, I get busy too, so I will have to re-organise myself and think of a better scheduling plan for 2018, as it will soon be here.

One special birthday I didn't miss with Paper-craft Birthday Greeting, well it is more of a Keepsake. A card and a Gift together.
I will get my drift once you see the images below. there are a few different names to this technique, but I will just use the name "Eclipse" technique. 
I have watched many fellow Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all over the world showing their way…
