Just Believe - Project Sheet - Free Download

Well finally after so much procrastination, I have finally developed a project sheet. But first let me explain. A project sheet is not a tutorial, it does not give you a step by step guide to creating the set of cards above. Although it does give you exact measurements to create four cards using the Just Believe stamp set from Stampin Up and a bonus card holder in portfolio style. All using just a few Designer Papers from Woodland Walk paper range. If you can use a ruler and some adhesive tape, then this down load is for you.

Just one thing. If you do download this file. Could you please, please, please let me know how it goes. I am working on more down loads, but I would like some feedback first before I put them on my blog. Thank you.

Class Project November



Here is the project my Stampin class made last Monday. It’s a little box with an acetate cover for the lid.
We then had some fun stamping and punching to make little gift tags to place inside the box.
Here is the link for the tutorial for the box we made:

We made a few minor alterations, basically to keep it to Stampin Up products and some ribbon I had and wanted to use. It is a bit hard to see the inside tags, but they are all made with punches that matched the stamps. i.e. Delightful Decorations etc.

Challenges, Challenges everywhere


The first Challenge I found was from The Colour Throwdown using the Stampin Up colours pictured left. Really awesome colours. This is Challenge number 118. So I think I am about 117 behind. OOps.

The Second Challenge comes from my beloved Mojo Monday sketch number 164. Where would I be without my mojo. Loved using this sketch. I think it will be one that I use quite often.

Last but not least. Here is my finished product. Yet another Christmas card out of the way for 2010. I used a 5'”x5” white card. All cardstock and Designer papers are from Stampin up. The image in the middle of the card is another one from Bugaboo stamps. Awesome.

One for the Girls

My son was attending a girls 16th birthday party on the weekend and I, not only had to provide him with a ‘customary’ birthday card, but a GIRL card. You can probably tell from my blog that I am a mother to two boys. Not much room really for any girlie stuff in this household, it’s all planes, trains and automobiles. Here is the card I came up with, with a little help from Kenny K Digital Stamps.

So the report that came back, was that Nathan got a great big hug and was told that his mum is awesome. I was really happy with that, and so was Nathan.
