This week at stampin royalty we have a Winter theme for you to try. I have used one of my favourite stamps called Snow Much Fun and coloured with my Copics to match the Stampin Up papers. The papers come from the mini stack called Winter Frost, which just fits nicely on the card. I even dragged out my little sewing machine and machine stitched around the outside of the Smokey Slate. So, remember, if you want to purchase any of these products to make you own Winter themed card, just click on the shopping button and have the product delivered straight to your door.

A Day at the Races

This year my son Daniel wanted to go to the Kyneton Cup and see what all the fuss was about. So, off we went for a little look. I created this page of our Day at the Races using the picture inspiration below. Well, I used most of the colours from the picture, with a little help from Stampin Ups MDS program. Have I told you how awesome this program is yet, I'm sure I have. Although, we had no idea what we were looking at as the horses ran around the track, we still enjoyed ourselves.

SR Challenge - No Embellishment Holiday Card.

Wow. A holiday card with NO Embellishments. Now that challenge was harder than I thought it was going to be. I designed this card on Stampin Up MDS program to try and stop myself from adding little bits here and there, like a bit of ribbon, or twine, maybe a few little brads….. I can't wait until I can check out what the other girls have some up with. Go and check them out at

SR Colour Challenge 201

At Stampin Royalty this week we have a colour challenge for you to play with. The challenge is:
Make a project using the colours mentioned. 

Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit

I couldn't decide of a card that I wanted to make, although I found this awesome (NO CUT) little bag on Pinterest. (I know, I am addicted to Pinterest) You can follow me if you like. Heaps of not only Stampin Up, but everything else too. If you click on the link below, that should take you to Silvey's craft room and the tutorial.

Copic Marker Journal - Card making Binder

For those of you who have downloaded my Copic Marker Journal, I thought I would show you all what mine looks like at the moment. Here is the front of my binder. I have decided to turn it into a Card Making Binder instead of just a Copic Journal. I will be uploading some more pages so you can see how it will all look when it is finished. Hopefully when  this is finished, I will have dividers with labels for easy section finding.

Dino birthday

There is a sketch challenge over at this week. It is an awesome sketch by Holly. I loved creating this card, and definitely going to use this one over and over again. So the image is a tiddlyinks (new) one and the colours I used are Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. (All Stampin Up). I also used the chevron punch and the Halloween washi tape.

The paper players challenge this week is 'Wildlife'. I am thinking that this may qualify as wild?
I will enter it anyway. I do love their Design Team cards, so inspirational.

Copic Marker Blue Greens

Here are the Blue Green collection of my Markers. As you can probably tell, I have run out of R81. Darn. I have only one image on this page so far. I have many digital stamps, but can not work out which other one I want to use. Oh and when Copic release a new colour, I throw these ones on the bottom of the page.

Copic Marker Journal - Blues

I can't believe that I have not continued with my Copic Journal. Although I have made a few other sizes, it was high time that I finished the large one. I am currently working on a card making book - folder that will contain everything I need for card making. I will be posting these pages as I finish them so you can (if you want) have a very similar organised system. Hopefully. So here is the page that I finished this morning using my Blue Markers. As you can see, I need to get some more, but not just yet. I have found that the ones that I have are enough for my colouring ability at this stage.

Don't forget, if you want a copy of this journal for your own reference, the PDF download is available on the left hand side of my blog under the heading of Copic Marker Journal.

SUO - Harvest time

At the Stampin Up Only challenge site this week the theme was Harvest. So I thought I would use my new stamp set called Gently Falling and create a Harvest - Fall - Autumn card and box.
I found the template for this box on Pinterest. Have I told you how in love I am with Pinterest. It is amazing. So here is the link for the card box.

and here is the link to SU Only

The card stock for my project consisted of More Mustard (retired), Soft Suede and the Designer paper is an old one called Spice cake (retired).
